    I'm old school so I'd say to stay well away... "breadcrumb... wheat flour... tapioca starch... wheat starch..." don't sound Dukan friendly to me.

    He does allow 2 x very well grilled beef merguez sausages in France (pricked and overcooked to let the fat out) as a TOLERATED ingredient. Again, I'd not go there.

    Up to you though...

    A Dukan friendly fry up would be eggs, turkey bacon, mushroom, tomato (if PV)

    thanks guys i'll avoid them. I only picked them up as they were on offer! we are having eggs, turkey rashers and i'm going to make some burgers instead of having the sausages.

    In chat he's okayed them with the limit at around 1.5 a day. I used to eat 1 a day at the start and didnt have a problem.

    ketostix don't lie but of course it would depend on how many other carbs one had the same day...

    Its up to individual but when you work so hard losing weight seems stupid to give it up for something as fake sausage

    They're not entirely accurate Jo.

    I was losing a steady 3lbs a week when having them (but I'd only just started eating meat again and was struggling to do so for more than 1 meal a day and I wasnt eating any tolerateds) but yes its better to have purer forms of protein.
