    Ok cool. Well I would say, tipwise... plan ahead. I just stock up my freezer with meat and fish and take it out on a morning ready to cook that night for tea or lunch the next day. Be prepared and chuck out or give away the things you cannot eat so u are not tempted :) I'm sure people will have better tips but that's mine lol. Good luck! X

    Do you have the book? Because I would really recommend reading it it's so useful.

    I eat bacon (very occassionally) and cut all the fat off and it hasn't affected my weight but many people don't eat it so I think it depends on the individual. It's very salty so can cause water retention too.

    I've been doing this 6 weeks now but haven't weighed myself in the last two weeks so not sure how mch I've lost but as of four weeks I'd lost 15lb. Since then however I have dropped a dress size and got into three pairs of trousers (Inc jeans) which previously didn't fit! So it's going well lol. Do you have a lot to lose? X

    Nooooo it's full of additives and sugar. I'm sure we must be able to make a dukan one but I'm not a ketchup user so i would t knkw. Don't miss anything really! You will find you don't miss the stuff u can't have x

    Hi,

    I'm still very new at this (just finished my first week) but my main tip would be to make sure you have some food with you at all times. It sounds drastic, but I found that I went from feeling slightly peckish to being ravenous in about 2 minutes. Having something at hand helped keep me on the straight and narrow.

    Good luck!

    Only from Cruise onwards, but you can make your own ketchup with tomato purée, a small dash of white wine vinegar, sweetener to taste and some spices.
