    BTW, I hated the Dukan Galette, and instead I eat what I call Dukan mush: Oat bran, Greek Yoghurt, Splenda, and enough fat free milk to make it liquify. I prefer to have my egg white cooked separately and eat it on the side.

    I love the Dukan moist cake. However, I have adjusted the recipe to use only 2 tbs of oat bran so I can eat the lot in a day! I also love adding a few tbs of pureed pumpkin quite a bit of cinnamon and a little nutmeg and quite a bit of sweetener to taste. I eat it with sweetened quark as an icing or sweetened yogurt/fromage frais. It feels so naughty!

    I started on the Dukan last Saturday and I’ve lost 7lbs. but it has come to a bit of a standstill, as predicted, since cruise phase has started. There are two questions I would like to ask.
    What is aspartone and where can I buy it?
    On a PV day is it o.k. to make soup using chicken stock from a carcass or is this too fatty?
    I’m very motivated (at the moment) and I don’t want to ruin my success so far.

    Make the stock let it cool then put in fridge (or freeze it for about an hour) then you can take the fat that solidifies off the top.

    Thanks so it’s veg. soup tomorrow and I can’t wait as find these pp days hard going. I knew aspartame was a sweetener but I asked at the health shop for a sweetener called aspartame and she gave me Splenda. So that will no doubt do.

    Just returned to France and still persevering with’cruise’ (well most of the time). I have not yet found cottage cheese or quark. Is it available over here? Also seafood sticks seem loaded with calories so are they really o.k. to snack on?

    I avoided surimi but PD says it’s okay. The version I used was almost pure protein, so it may be worth checking the ingredients of the ones you’re considering.

    Dannyboy: You will find that you have periods where you are level in weight, then lose several pounds rapidly. I can’t speak to cottage cheese, as I have never seen the equivalent here. There are many recipes online, here is one: http://www.essortment.com/make-cottage-cheese-41782.html. Overall, I think that the Dukan diet, which is generically a modified protein fast diet, works better for men than women. I find that the major benefit for me is making me much more aware of what I eat and portion control. I have also been very strict about my associated exercise. I live in the US a lot of the time, and the availability of sliced “deli” meats makes the portion control easier. I have a slicer here, so I cook up a bit of beef pork, and chicken, and slice a couple of days worth and put it in the fridge. When I started, I was at my heaviest (225 lbs), and now, a year later, I have been steady at 175 for 6 months, without feeling deprived.

    As a byproduct, my BP and cholesterol have both fallen. I would add the proviso, however, that you must be careful about the fat intake attendant on the high protein side, and be sure that you are getting protein that is low in fat. I do a lot of sous vide cooking, or other low temp cooking, which helps in that regard.

    Good luck to you all.
