    Been on many, returning to WW!
    Hiya, I have just been to the nurse for my contraception and she asked my weight and I said I was 12 1/2 stone but was 9 1/2 this time last year. I did the cd and lost weight but have since struggled to keep it off. I have dabbled with sw, ww, exante since then. I said I was planning to join ww again tomorrow and she said what about the Dukan diet as it's meant to be one of the best?

    That really surprised me so now I am doing a bit of research. I remember reading about this diet last year but remember thinking as a veggie it wouldn't be suitable.

    What's the general weight loss on this diet?

    Any advice welcome :)

    Hello.
    I would suggest getting the book, either purchase it or ask if your library has a copy? Im unsure re the veggie side of it, but there are some on here that are veggie (bren is one if you look in the diary section).
    It is a very high protein/low carb diet and is VERY strict, But really does work.
    Hopefully someone else on here will be able to help more. x

    We have one veggie poster, Bren (go to our Diary section perhaps and read). It's very hard to find enough variety in the proteins allowed on this diet as a vegetarian.
