    Hello :)
    Also over from Atkins and looking for an alternative to all that fat. Been browsing online about Dukan and thought I'll try it - seems challenging at first, but I suppose like any diet, it's all about willpower. Lost 10lbs in a month - firstly through upping the exercise, then 3 weeks on Atkins. Hoping the low-fat approach will boost those figures quickly. I'll order the book from Amazon, but going to start tomorrow. :D

    Thinking about it, reckon I am going to stick with Atkins - but just limit the ammount of fat that I eat. Essentially I feel good and I am still losing at the moment, so I should stick with it. Lost 8.5lbs in 3 weeks on Atkins, which I don't think is too bad. If I start stalling for ages, or start gaining then will certainly give Dukan a try. Good luck, ladies :)

    I think in some ways the two diets can work in parallel... I contacted Jim a month or so ago myself to see how I could make the switch the other way (without the fat... but I was hoping for a little fruit, alas!!). I just wanted a "change" cos I'm in a rut.

    I am finding this a little harder as on atkins i could have a kebab if i couldnt be bothered to cook, or some cheese to nibble on. I really wanted pizza yesterday but i was good and didnt have one.

    Yeah it's about finding a balance I guess. Every diet has its drawbacks. Personally I like Atkins, I just don't like all the fat. Didn't have a brilliant week this week, which ended up with a carb blowout yesterday in the form of a chinese. Woke up very focused and determined today tho so I am hoping for a good loss next week.

    On Atkins you can eat a shop bought kebab?

    The trick with Dukan is to have some snacks handy... I buy packs of chicken thighs - those tiny pieces - roast up the whole pack, take the skins off, then freeze in 2s... always handy to have... I've also ALWAYS got boiled eggs made... In the freezer small packs of prawns, even slices of roast beef...

    It's true though, when starving and nothing to hand, that's when I'd have a crabstick or two... but I don't like reading their ingredients!

    I'm a fervent believer of "treating yourself" on any diet to the food you really like... while Dukan might seem an expensive diet, as he encourages FRESH meat and fish rather than always buying pre-packaged, when I compare my bills now to previously (and include sweets, alcohol, bread etc AND restaurants out), I'm quids in!

    So if you like mussels, can you get fresh ones and do them yourself. They're EXCELLENT for this diet! If you like kebabs, make your own? I know it's a drag if you don't like cooking perhaps?

    I hear you re busy life etc and that's why when, say, I'm cooking chicken, I cook two... and freeze... at the weekend, I made a beef casserole (ok and OD'ed on the veg), but I made enough for a further 2 x meals for us both... etc etc... cos, while I'm at it, might as well. I never cook 1 piece of salmon, but 3... etc.

    Just takes a bit of organising and because I never mind eating the same stuff lunchtimes, it works for me; Dinner I'm a bit more inventive but as I nearly always spent Friday and Sunday evenings in a car, that's a toughie... hence breakfast happens at teatime if in a car!!

    I did 100s this weekend! haaaaa! There was an offer - and ever keen for a bargain, and knowing I'll be in the city this coming weekend and not easy to get to a big hypermarket, I cooked enough for 2 people for 2 weeks... errr four full tins worth of leg pieces! hihi! My freezer is GROANING! But we saved a fortune and as neither of us are keen on breast, finding 5K packs so cheap, just had to buy two (10K chicken legs!)

    Living between two houses, two freezers, out of the house 12 hours a day, if not organised, I'd always go for the easy option... (and used to! hence my 22 stone start weight!)

    I lose weight yes... but can't stay still anywhere... so I'm always on the way down, or the way back up... got quite high this time, so pretty scarey...

    I can diet. I can "eat" for 10. I just get confused in the middle bit... ;)


    I'm fatter this year than I've been since quitting smoking three years ago, so I'm not happy with me... I got too complacent, I guess...

    so no congratulations... my PIGGY pseudo stays... cos it's well earned!
