    Hi, I've been doing dukan since august and have lost 2 stone so far, only a few more pounds to go and then I'll move on to the third stage. I lost 8lb in the first week and by November I had lost 2 stone. 3 months to lose 2 stone ain't bad! I love this diet. I have maintained my weight but now just need to shift the last 4lb. I only joined this site last night and am looking forward to sharing stories, tips and ideas!!! :)

    Thank you for your welcomes! I thought I would just share an amended recipe I made yesterday for meatloaf. I had made the meatloaf out of the Dukan book last week and followed it to the letter - it was nice (ish) but very bland so here is my amended version:-

    Soozys meatloaf

    1 x 500g pack of extra lean steak mince
    1 x onion
    2 x cloves of garlic
    1 x egg
    2 tsp ground black pepper
    Handful of diced mushrooms

    Dry fry onion and garlic. Mix raw mince in a bowl with the beaten egg and LOTS of black pepper. (at least 2 tsp) Add a crumbled beef oxo cube. Mix well. Stir in softened onion and garlic. Add mushrooms and mix again. Press into a foil container, not too deep and cook at about 200 degrees for about 40 minutes. Absolutely gorgeous!! WARNING: it won't last long :) great warm and delicious cold the following day!!! Mmmmmm! Great to snack on and very filling!!

    I chose to leave out the additional boiled egg as I just don't like meat mixed with boiled egg.

    Bon appetit!

    Hi, Soozy, and congrats on your weight loss. Not long until you join me on Conso! It'll be nice to have the company, now that Laura and Anja have moved onto Consostab! :)

    Thanks, Soozy. I lost 27lbs to get to my target weight, but am currently a few pounds below that, so trying to find the right balance to keep the weight steady.

    For tips, I'd say to make sure you don't get bored by eating the same old food. Check out the recipe threads page and also the menus. They're usually pretty good for when you need some inspiration.

    And never forget your oatbran and to drink plenty water! ;-)

    Hi, Nal! I've found that this diet is pretty easy to stick to because, as long as you follow the rules, you don't tend to feel hungry. Plus, once you see these pounds dropping off, it's really good motivation! :)

    Good luck!
