Hi everyone, Today is a massive day for me. Since June I have been doing the slim and save VLCD and I have gone from 13 stone 12 to 9 stone 9lb. I'm now a size 10/12 and feel brilliant however I cannot do this forever and so I have turned to Dukan for my refeed/maintenance. It's been so very very long that I have eaten anything other than chicken, salmon, ham, eggs or very few vegetables that I am really daunted by it all. It's scary. I'm very worried that I will put the weight back on, I don't ever want to be so overweight and miserable again. :-( BUT, on a lighter note I have always planned to do a dukan style refeed and then his consolidation (300 days for me!) and then stabilisation. The VLCD worked wonders for me but I feel dukan can be a lifelong way to eat sensibly. So after hours of convincing myself to start Dukan I made my first galette this morning, it was delicious and extremely filling (my stomach has shrunk SO much due to the vlcd). I had the galette 4 hours ago and I am still very full, I went for a long walk with my dog and I got fuller as I walked! I have so many questions and need so much help. I'm not going straight into conso as its just too much of a shock to my system, I'm going to have to gradually introduce bread, cheese (eeeeeks) and the celebration meals ( do you call them gala meals?) I went shipping yesterday and. Bought loads of things I think I could use chicken, lean steak, eggs, quark, squash, non fat yogurt if all kinds, oat bran, yeast (to make dukan bread) apples, broccoli, sugar free jelly, prawns, fish etc. Am I ok having onken vanilla yogurt or should I stick with ww toffee and vanilla - how many pots can I have a day? Ooh, also, rhubarb? Is that one of my allowed vegetables (I was planning on having it with dukan muffins and yogurt for breakfast!) I'm off to Asda now for some silicone moulds for bread and quiche things along with some more jellies and stuff. I have already had lots of pointers but if there is anything you could tell me about the plan with regards to shopping I would be very grateful. Thank you so much! Oh, here's my meals so far today Breakfast- sweet galette, small handful of goji berries. Snack - SF jelly, water coffee Snack - A taste of Dukan muffins I made! Snack- tomatoes with red onion and basil Lunch - Dukan quiche (made with cottage cheese, egg, spinach, butternut squash and red onion.) DELISH! Tea - chicken thighs in curry paste with natural yogurt and butternut squash Dessert - activia vanilla yogurt I can't quite believe how much I have eaten today! So that's it, my first day as a lady who does Dukan!
