    Hi, thought i would introduce myself, since i am going to start the Dukan diet in a week :)

    Im Kate, living in Sheffield and i am in need to loose weight since i want to get pregnant and have a healthy baby!

    I weigh almost 21 stone :cry: and i am looking to loose 6 stone and then while dieting try and get pregnant, i weighed 13 stone when i met my fella 5 years ago and would love to get back down to this weight.

    Anyways nice to meet you all, i am reading the book at the minute as it was delivered today along with the recipe book.

    Thanks

    Welcome PPK... and I hope we can help with any question you might have. One tip: avoid those cookery books at the outset, even Dukan's recipe book. There are errors in there, and unnecessarily carby ingredients, so until you're well into your Cruise phase and understand the diet, I'd keep well away... sorry for the cash outlay! I've got the Dukan recipe book and we can check things before you try them.

    Very glad you're saying hello a week before starting. I advise emptying cupboards of tempting treats between now and then, also some social life organisation if you find it awkward around family and friends; lastly menu and shopping planning is crucial to the diet as rarely will you find something Dukan friendly when you're out in a hurry and starving.

    Good luck!

    Hi, Kate. :)

    As Jo has said, we can't stress enough how important preparation is to making your diet as successful as possible. It makes a huge difference.

    Looking forward to reading more from you!

    Hi, yeah i cant wait to start, not decided which day i am going to start next week, going to make sure i have everything i need and that i understand the concept (which i think is pretty simple to begin with but i have my blonde moments - even though i have dark brown hair now :p)

    Evenings are my worse time when i want to stuff my face so i might have to get a hobby or something.

    Ooooh it feels like a little family on here :D

    I find it helps to keep back some of my oatbran allowance (either toffee muffins or sweet galette) for the evening to have as a 'pudding' and as it's so filling I don't feel the need to snack after that! The muffins ate so cakey they do just the job :)
