    Doing it Dukan Style!

    Hi all,

    I'm Loopy a complete newbie to forums, a veteran in diets! A little insight into my diet faux pars:

    2005 - 2006 : Weight watchers (9.5 stone)
    2006 - 2007 : Alternative diet (8.5 stone)
    2008 - 2012 : pick and choose diet lol (10-11 stone)
    2013 : Dr Dukans diet

    From these years I've fluctuated from size 8 to 14. Now with me at my heaviest I am determined to gain back my control and teach myself I can say no to my cravings, I will no longer gorge on copius amounts of fruit.....or cake, biscuits, chocolate, sweets, bread.....'oh how I have sinned!' lol

    I discovered the dukan diet when my partner was searching for a pure protein diet for his race training, and so we took on challenge.

    At the beginning i was very skeptical convinced it was a fad diet which would result in a quick pound drop followed by a weight gain rebound. However, 4 days in am i am amazed ; my perception on food and taste has completely turned around.

    For example, in the 'ol' days i wouldn't have thought twice about having banana after banana, whilst sugar coating any desert at my fingertips. Whereas now, the thought of a starchy banana/mango/chocolate/mashed potatoe or oily crisps makes me shudder. Altho cravings for watermelon and grapes have intensified lol

    And oooh the delight now of drinking semi - skimmed milk its light a suh-weet sweet heaven!

    Never before have I felt like this during a diet, normally im crawling the walls and staring down the mr kipling cherry bakewell boxes! lol

    But ever the sinic, I worry how long this new perspective will last, and I was almost afraid to blog for fear that talking about my 'eureka' moment would be diluted by my own reverse psychology.But after a 5 pound loss already, I feel in control and confident that Dr Dukan will lead me to a lighter life. However, my prayer beads will be rubbed raw as again i'm totally worried that after week 1, I will bottle out and give up.

    Well, at a snap shot glimpse - thats me and my diet. I welcome with open arms any hints, tips or advice people have to offer, I just hope that I can return the favour

    ciao for now

    Loopy

    Hi Loopy and welcome! As you've already discovered, the dukan diet does work and as far as diets go it's relatively painless. You'll find lots of friendly, helpful people here so keep posting on your diary. I think probably the number dukan diet tip is - BE PREPARED. In other words, don't get caught without something to eat always at hand! Also check the recipe thread, lots of inspiration there as well.
    Good luck!

    Today has definatly tested me,

    my mum has made some gorgeous looking lemon drizzle cakes and pilled the trolley with grapes, mangos and bananas all my favs, but I have resisted and had a yummy 0% fat yogurt and chicken stuffed with quark wrapped in bacon (with all fat cut off). Ooh I have the power! and its a great feeling the chicken was definatly the yummiest lunch ive had in a while much better than a ham sandwich. With this enjoyment and self control I cannot wait to see what results I get on Wednesday my 7 day weigh in The next best step will be progressing my 'weightloss ticker'

    although how long i'll cope with all this mountain fruity and cake temptation, I don't know, so to help me - I've told my mum about the dukan diet -the bananas, mango's and grapes will still be around for my mum, dad and siblings to munch on, i have her approval and full support happy times

    p.s. ---> sidid I've been reading your blog and its truly an inspiration! Big congrats on all your effort paying off and big thanks to you for sharing your journey

    i just couldn't wait - i weighed myself today i'm under 11 stone i now weigh in at 10 stone 11 pounds im soo happy, what a fantastic beginning to a wonderful new journey.

    although this morning i was ready to munch down as much fruit as possible - most definatly not through choice, rather through need. But some medicine has helped 'clear the pipes' which kept any emergency fruit n fibre consumption at bay, lol

    I cant believe how much my appetite has changes, usually in the morning id have two full cheeks of buterry toast, washed down with a big glass of orange juice....but now some fat free yogurt with a hint of vanilla and topped with mint leaf is enough for me

    let the good times roll and bring on the battle of the bulge

    Day 7 and im still in the zone

    B - 1/2 cup of yogurt
    L - 1 chicken breast wrapped in 1 bacon slice
    T - Lamb Moussaka which used lamb chops,minced at home, 1 onion, 1/3rd aubergine and 80g tomatoes
    D - glass of milk

    Im going to start off with 5 PV days and then switched to 5 PP.

    The increase in veg felt strange after 7 days in attack, so kinda made me feel concerned about the weightloss, so I went for a 30 minute circuit training session. I cant wait for my first cruise weigh in, in 5 days time. Fingers crossed.

    Today having a day at home and subsequently being bored has definatly kicked up my cravings for chocolate and cake. But I've managed to resist , just!! Lol

    B - glass of milk
    L - yogurt and oat bran
    T - steak with onions, asparagus and poached egg
    D - glass of milk

    Don't know why but I'm craving milk like crazy too! Will try and drink more as I think that's why.

    After reading a few threads some people seem to have achieved some great results with the 30 day shred. Would I be allowed to do this is the cruise phase? I was thinking of taking a protein shake to help with my energy levels and muscle repair? Is this an ok way to go?

    im going back to uni soon and really dont want to stray off the dukan diet, but as my other half has been my 'guardian angel' in the kitchen preventing me from producing charcoled tastless meals, ive decided to start a photo dukan dish diary- this should help me plan my meals and remember what to buy at the super market so far ive brain stormed :8 PP dishes and 8 PV. Ooh exciting stuff i feel like Carrie off sex and the city with all this blogging
