Frankly, at your current weight Claire, you could (should?) be eating a lot more (ok you've not put quantities of chicken or steak, but that's where you could increase if you're hungry.) Your breakfast is light. Have you tried using your oatbran to make muffins or galettes with? That way you get some protein in there too...

No errors, so well done on first day. Check that there's nothing added to your beef slices, and prepare a proper snack henceforth so as not to get caught out.

Keep posting!

Thank you do much for posting, it seems so strange to eat more. Having just switched from WW where everything wad weighed etc but I do agree I should eat more.
Lunch wad prob 1 chicken breast and dinner should have been 2 thin steaks but it wasn't very tender so only ate 1.
Will try cooking the galette later ready for tomorrow morning as yes a was def in need of a bigger more filling brekkie.
Onwards and downwards, have lost 1lb since yest morn so it's moving :) x

Oatbran porridge is good too; made with skimmed milk it's very satisfying. Keep up with the good work!

Another great tip, could I make with water then stir in 0% Greek yogurt? X

You can make with skim milk or water and still stir in the 0% yoghurt. Have you got the book? You do really need it I think. It has lots of guidance and rationale to it. All the different oatbran recipes are a real help, too, so read them on this site.

Hi there Diamond, sounds like you're off to a good start on dukan. Definitely make sure you're eating enough - if not your body will hang on to its reserves as it'll think you're starving it, which is not how this works! I tend to prepare more food than I'll need, and take what I don't eat back home or shift it till the next day. It's also nice to have it there as a 'comfort blanket' in case of snack attack moments mid afternoon!

Just made Oatbran Muffins flavoured with some cinnamon and dash of coffee :)
Followed microwave version and 4 mins later a miracle is behold, they smell amazing .... Ok not brown on top but tried a tiny bit and they are delicious :)
Brekkie Tom with 0% Greek all sorted wohoo

Only used 1 egg so can still have my other egg with lunch which consists of Dukan friendly Cajun chicken and red salmon mmmmmm yum!!
Dinner Tom night is Alaskan Red Salmon Fillets.

Question, can I make tartare sauce on attack. I use 0% Greek yog, pepper and chopped gerkins, capers too if allowed ??

Isn't it funny how you start to long for veg on attack - I couldn't wait to have spinach even though I rarely had it before! (Spinach is fantastic in thai green curry on PV days)

Sounds like you are doing well Claire. I am thinking about next weeks menus now too. How are you planning on making your curry?

Its an easy one :)
Dry fry chicken and onions until sealed. Add 1 tbsp Curry Powder ( or to taste ), ginger and garlic and cook for a few mins.
Add pasatta ( 200ml ) and simmer for 20 mins.
Stir through spinach until wilted and serve with fresh coriander :D

Well finally able to weigh myself properly today after having to buy new scales!!
Hubbie has now lost 4.5 and i've lost 5 lb in 4 days so very happy.
2 days left on attack and then my first day of Cruise on Sunday. Worked out well as we have a garden party in the afternoon as the Altzheimers home where my mother in law lives and then straight after to my nephews birthday bbq.
At least having a PV day I can eat pick salad and chicken etc.....and my sister in law is a real healthy concious cook thankfully so everything is always very lean and dressings on the side for people to add there own PHEW :cool:

Anyway here's to another great attack day, got lots of yummy food in my fridge after shopping last night.....tons of meat/fish/poultry/dairy bargins yesterday so spolit for choice.

Oh before I forget has lovely dinner last night, rump steak seasoned with Steak Seasoning - reduced salt version :p and King prawns seasoned with smoked paprika :eating: so delicious xx

Hi Claire,

just discovered your diary - you're doing GREAT! Well done! Now you got past the first hurdle of not eating enough, you should be doing fine. enjoy those veggies when you switch to cruise! Remember you should still be having two-thirds protein-rich foods though. No win summer it's great - I just pile a plate with leaves, add some S&P and vinegar, a big dollop of Fromage Frais, maybe some snipped chives etc and then top with a nice big piece or two of whatever you fancy: smoked Salmon, Mackerel, tinned tuna / mackerel / salmon. Cooked chicken, roast beef.

And don't forget cherry tomatoes. My backup 'grapes' last year when my family were snacking on the sweet green things... I still nearly always have a bowl of them on the worktop to just pick one up when I need a lift!

Another 2 lb off so that's 7 lb in 5 days, can't quite believe it really especially switching from WW I didn't expect such a large loss whilst following attack :)
I think I will weigh on the morning after my PP days when I switch to cruise tomorrow, I will see how the scales behave the day after a pv ;)
