My question is Will protein maintain muscle (on low cal Dukan Diet)? Thanks in advance for any response. Second question of mine... Ok folks - since I totally hate the new Dukan Diet boards - figured I would given that I cannot stand dealing with all the forums - don't look for many posts from me until I get used to where stuff is and get over my aversion to looking in thirteen places to find the stuff but I will say this once, to get it out of my system for those of you who complained about the confusing state of the old boards but dislike the Dukan Diet imposed separate groupings TOLD YA SO!!! nah nah nah.... whew, now I feel better.....

I LIKE crazy mixed up stuff - LOL except when it comes to my recipe files.... They got a bit too crazy and I couldn't find stuff in less than 10 minutes using the "find & replace" function and sometimes, I hit replace all by accident major oops there.....

I just checked and all the pretty pdf files that I posted on the old boards don't show up, so I figured I'd "christen" these icky new boards with my collections we'll see if it works or not.....

For those of you who got them before the "change" depending on how long ago, there are either minor or major changes (I decided to actually USE the "spell check" and discovered a ton of typos and suchlike I have no clue how to access the attached files, but assume it will become clear as we go along... LOL.....

The answer is Yes, but you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you email the Dukan Diet guys because they can give you an answer better...

Typical of Dukan Diet I had to go thru several hoops to upload the blinking files and now they go to "Page Cannot Be Displayed" sorry..

Comment #2

OH Wait - they DO work click on the name OR the adobe icon and it appears in a separate window = you can then save to your computer or print em (note each file is at least 30 pages long) with the icons that appear with viewing the pdf....

Have fun.

Hi Graylady,.

Just a note to let you know that I can't get the Vegetables.pdf to display. I either get the "page can't be found" or simply a blank page... will keep trying..

David.

PS - forget I mentioned this... right after posting, I went back and tried again. Now it's working fine..... go figure.....

Comment #4

Yep - that's what happened to me seems to take a couple tries.

And why am I NOT surprised that the "new & improved" Dukan Diet bb is half-assed???.

Have fun.

Comment #5

Yeah, this is just awesome, eh Lynn?.

Grrrr. I never wanted them changed either. Now my quick loading link pages are gone. I mean the old "read only" posts are there, but the attached files don't work. I don't know how much patience I have for this.....

BTW, if I click "subscribe to this topic", what does that do?.

Crap, just realized that I spent all this time on another post figuring out how to do my links to profile and such, and never copied and pasted the codes to keep it on my desktop. LOLOL. This blows! Guess I get to do it all again....

Oh, and how do you attach multiple files like that? Do they have to be pdf?.

Amy..

Comment #7

Testing....

Won't let me upload html or text only files.... grrrr...

Comment #8

Amy - I started to do a long dissertation on your other "emotional" post (do like being able to display threads by "latest topic" cause I ain't gonna go to several locations - too lazy.

Apparently when you click the "Attach File(s)" at the bottom the the message input screen, you get some sort of list of your previous attached files THEN you can ADD to that list by uploading new files (worked for my pdf's, should work for your pics) - that get's em on the list of "available" files for attachment.

THEN you click the file name from the listing and it'll appear in the Attachments box....

Rinse, lather, repeat until you have all the files you want attached to the post.

Then hit the "send" button (post or reply I think) and the attachments magically appear in your post as they did for me.

You could at the least post the pics that way so people can click the link in the post and see the pic in another window could actually be helpful for those of us who are still in the stone age (dial up) and wanna see your words as well as your pics but don't have 1/2 hour for them to all load - can view one at a time....

Phew - think it's gonna be a pain for you is too bad, I really like your posts call em up and then go fix dinner while the pictures load - LOL I gotta get dsl....

Lynn.

PS - I have NO CLUE what it means to "subscribe" to a topic unless it's the "new and improved" version of the "e-mail" thingie..

Seriously, what a pain in the ass! I mean, I know I was the one a few days ago who said there would be bumps in this process and if all kept level heads, etc.... but I didn't realize it was going to make me posting pics nearly impossible. The problem with trying to just attach the picture links is that they aren't on my desktop, they are on photobucket, so if I just click attach and then it tells me to "browse" it just brings up stuff on my desktop... I can use the http address that photobucket lists, and then cut and paste the "linking" code that they want us to use here, but it's gonna take 3 times as long for each picture. It already takes me too long to do it the other way, and I liked being able to see the pics right there... 90% of the people won't even take the time to click the pictures if I just link to them anyway,so why bother, you know? I've been debating how much longer I should stay on the boards and post anyway, as I'm just running out of steam.

LOL..

Amy - how do you get your photo's to photoshop??? I'm pretty clueless about how the whole pic thing works (my last camera died of boredom and currently I use the one-pop's from Longs, let them "develop" and put on paper and cd for me) for me, I get a JPG or similar file of the photo and save it to my puter, THEN uplink it to photoshop, so naturally I have the file ON my puter's hard drive to upload to Dukan Diet yet again....

Can you save the pics to a folder in your My Pictures folder and then re-upload (rather than link to photoshop) for the NS???.

I can't blame you for feeling a tad burned out over the amount of time it takes to do your posts if memory serves, you started this version almost a year ago to help you with your own accountablility if it serves that purpose, then maybe a reduced version here with pictures and so on only when there's something fun, special or other that you want to share??? But, if it's more work than benefit - you should put yourself first, and not over strain/stress yourself over it....

Hang in there.

Lynn..

Comment #11

Thanks so much Lynn! I'll have to decide over the holidays what I want to do about posting... As for photobucket, all my pics go automatically onto there. I just plug in my camera, then click browse on there and open up my connection to the camera. I can upload them directly to photobucket and bypass my computer hard drive totally. I have well over 1000 pics on photobucket like that now, and it would take waaaayyyy too long to put each into "my pictures" on my computer. Not really worth the effort, and I don't really want all 1000 of those food pics on my regular computer anyway.

I did figure out that if I just click the "http" button at the top of the post, then copy and paste the url address into there from photobucket, then I can name the pic as well; that's the fastest way to link to the pictures, but uploading multiple small pics... still not sure on that one since they aren't in "my pictures" yet on my own computer....

OK, just testing a few food pics that I have on my actual computer to see how they come out on here.... Of course I discovered a new problem when I did that. They have no names, only numbers, so if I upload them into my "NS file list" I'll just see a bunch of numbers and not know which pic they are. hahaha. Figures. I'd better get off of here and go relax.



Amy.

Oh, and I can't put any *****les by them or anything. They just show up at the end of my post. LOL..

*****Now just what the hell is THAT trying to censor? LOL. I was just saying I coudln't "tltle" the post. HaHa, does it think I'm saying a bad word for breast? LOL...

Comment #12

Hey I'm just beginning to figure the new board's censor program out it's censoring the MIDDLE of the alternate word for Nutritionist, EVEN though there is a whole FORUM called "Ask The Die*****ian" guess the *****ized english version of the french word for breast is now a no-no, but at least we can have sex on the boards again....

Gotta love Dukan Diet - couldn't do it simple and easy and just make a couple basic forums - hadda be "cute" bet the marketing folks came up with the forum *****les and they've never actually USED the BB's LMAO.

Have a calm and happy Xmas.

Lynn..

Comment #13

LOL Lynn, I'll be sure to let the marketing firm know how we feel about the changes..

Too bad they didn't just check with any of us to ask us what kind of changes WE wanted. Hell, I was fine with the original board, just didn't like that they took away the auto e-mail replies and the search feature. Now we have a search, but no way to track our own posts that I can see. UGH&gt;.

Amy..

You look great and give me hope. I am at 175 lbs. and just starting after Christmas. How long did it take you to lose your weight? I want to lose about the same amount...

Hi!.

Which one of us were you asking about? It took me 7 months to lose 60 lbs last year on NS. Best program I've ever found. It's a winner for sure!.

Amy..

Comment #16

I can't get the recipes to open and I can't see any of the pictures on Amy's posts. Waaaaaaaaaah..

Ashley..

Comment #17

Keep trying it appears to be an "intermittent" thing refresh the screen or leave the forum and return and try again even I can't get my pdf's all of the time.

Typical of NS's approach add something new then make it "low inventory" the next week, then say "oops it was a limited time, did we forget to tell ya".

If you try again and can't get em e-mail me (the profile button on posts IS a nice addition) and I'll kick em off to you....

Color me sad that Dukan Diet can't do anything PROPERLY - I"m tired of trying to touch my toes by doing a back bend too old for that nonsense.

Lynn..

Comment #18

Amy:.

I really like your recipes and pictures and have benefited from your daily postings. Please don't leave, I wonder if you could just have a subsection under recipes with your group. I am doing really well thanks to you. If you decide to stop I would understand though Nutrisystem is great but the corporate structure needs help. I hope your blog is still working though. Thanks much..

Comment #19

I can't get your downloads to open. I get page cannot be found..

I've tried doing it both ways you suggested. I'll keep an eye out for responses and maybe someone will have a suggestion...

Comment #20

I got dinner and vegetable recipes to download, but that was it. I'll keep trying...

Comment #21

Bummer it IS an intermittent thing though all I can suggest is to either keep trying, or e-mail me.

Sorry..

Comment #22

I like being able to access your recipes this way. Couldn't open the lunch one though. My first day back after a vacation and it's a bit strange learning my way around this new board..

Comment #23

I have to change my doc. default settings on my computer from Microsoft WORKS to Microsoft WORD before I can open the files. After that they seem to open okay. Hope this helps..

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough...

Comment #24

Ummm yeah except of course, IF you had looked at the.

Date.

Of the previous posts you would have noticed that this thread was posted TWO YEARS AGO when these boards were in a.

Previous incarnation.

, and stuff worked differently by the way at that time, the files were in PDF form and attached to this post.... and so your reply has nothing whatsoever to do with the problems noted by the posters 2 years ago.... and anyway as can be seen by reading the replies above, the problems weren't in READING the files, but in getting the version of the boards in existence at that time to actually work as promised... roflmao.

When Dukan Diet changed the boards 18 months ago, the files were too large for attachment to this thread and so were removed and put onto my blog and the link put into my signature which means that the problems noted in the posts above have had no relevance since then....

Then again, as I say in the top post on my blog (where the files are now located) - the files.

Are.

Formatted for MS WORD, so it's a really good idea to use.

That.

Program or another that can import files in the Word format (like my beloved Lotus WordPro which is a far better program than the MS one) if you want to read them....

Lynn..

Comment #25

Lynn, I just wanted to say that I have your files from when I first started & have used them countless times. I have followed your suggestions & recipes and attribute much of my success to what you've taught me. I am usually full & satisfied after my meals which is keeping me on plan and happy with NS. I wish the site didn't cause so much frustration for you but wanted you to know what an impact you have on so many of us & how much help you've been, and most importantly, THANK YOU!..

Comment #26

Thanks glad my files & stuff have been helpful.

But as noted above, the complaint that is in my original post IS over 2 years old and while I still dislike the "new" boards - it's now for different reasons....

Roflmao.

Lynn..

Comment #27

Sorry, didn't note the above mentioned info. That is just the way I have to get them to open still...
