hello all. ive started the dukan today and to be honest i need your help with what i can and cant eat :confused:
for breaky i had a boiled egg, lunch i had a coffee with skimmed milk and one sweetener, i didnt eat anything because i was scared i would eat something that not allowed, there so many people online putting there version of the diet and i just want the facts. now after small research ive come up with an idea for dinner, lean steak strips, chilli powder, onion and garlic, does this sound ok?
im in the attack phase obviously so its hard to know what i can and cant eat i dont want to mess it up with one silly mistake!

Have you ready the book?

Its a good idea to read it, then make a meal plan, and a shopping list before you start.

Coffee is not lunch.

You can only have a small amount of onion on attack, like a teaspoon amount, the rest sounds like a good idea.

Read the daily menu thread, the faq and some diaries and you'll get an idea of what people eat in attack, pp days are similar to attack.

Have you got your oatbran?

You really do need to read the book it explains everything! It sounds like you have not eaten much today at all. My advice would be to discount today, have a proper filling dinner, and start afresh tomorrow!

RE: Ketosis - its not a goal of this diet (you have too much dairy and veg). You may get into ketosis anyway (I did but kept losing even after I came out.) I wouldn't focus on it though - just stick to what you read in the book.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Shell

I'm afraid, yes - day three of attack is often horrible - like flu, but the good news is that is the signal that attack has worked and you can move straight onto cruise and the symptoms disappear almost at once.

Good luck - and remember we are here to help out with advice you feel rough again.
