    Dukan or don't can't - 8 week race to wedding!!!

    So I have been doing Dukan since Boxing Day in a desperate attempt to shed the pounds before the big day on 22 February 2014! I would love to get at least a stone off in 8 weeks - could be an impossibility...but my dress was ordered a size smaller - seemed very achievable back in May.

    Mini diary so far:

    26 December - Attack!

    Skipped breakfast at the inlaws - they only had toast and no eggs
    Lunch - proscuitto ham with all the fat cut off and steak at Carluccio's
    Snacks: packet of cooked chicken breast M&S (but notice it is cooked in sugar!), honey smoked salmon (grr honey)
    Costa coffee: Americano
    Dinner: another packet of cooked chicken breast M&S (again with the stupid sugar!) and two boiled eggs.
    Exercise: Hiking round Cambridge for hours in the sales.

    27 December - Attack!

    Breakfast: Oatbran porridge
    Egg white omelette and lean ham
    Exercise: I stupidly went to my personal trainer this morning - too intense! felt crappy for the rest of the day. DO NOT DO MASSIVELY INTENSE EXERCISE IN ATTACK...WORST FEELING EVER!
    Lots of water
    Lemonade
    Tea
    Lunch: Plaice and prawns
    Dinner: Tuna steak and plaice
    Extra dinner: Sirloin steak strips and mustard, total yoghurt with sweetener

    28 December - Attack! Book recommends a 3 day attack - I was gonna go for 5 but going insane already!

    Breakfast: Oatbran porridge
    Long train journey: Cooked chicken pieces that I did in fry light and spices, cottage cheese, total yoghurt with sweetener
    Dinner: Salmon and sirloin steak strips with mustard, total yoghurt with sweetener

    29 December - Cruise - oh yeah! Veggies

    Mad how much you miss veggies innit?
    Breakfast: Oatbran porridge
    Breakfast: Spinach and two poached eggies
    Lunch: Seafood platter at a restaurant in St Ives - was covered in olive oil though, peppers and silverskin onions , diet coke
    Snacks: Whole pack of cherry tomatoes and a large 450g Rachel's organic low fat yoghurt with raspberry (naughty but I was desperate!)
    Dinner: cod stew (had a bit of olive oil in it...tomato puree, garlic onion, fish stock and cod
    Drinks: Raspberry tea and water
    Exercise: 20 minute walk around St Ives

    30 December - Cruise - doing another PV day as still in Cornwall with friends
    Breakfast: Oatbran porridge
    Lunch: Poached egg, smoked salmon in bloody honey, cottage cheese
    Snacks on train: Two chicken breasts and a packet of brussel sprouts. Love sprouts!
    Dinner: bolognese sauce (no lean mince in Waitrose - so fiance had to drain the fat from the meat - gross!), onions, tomatoes, mange tout, cherry tomatoes.

    Congrats on your forthcoming wedding - how exciting! I know it's cliche, but the final weeks will fly by.

    I'm sure you can lose a stone in that time, just stay focused!

    Thanks MiniBean! I feel a bit discouraged that the weight is not 'flying off' as with some people but hey ho...

    Diary 31/12/2013 (PP day)

    Breakfast: Oatbran porridge with s/skimmed milk
    Boiled egg

    Lunch: Venison steak, three seafood sticks
    Total 0% yogurt with cinammon
    Small joint of beef cut into strips with french mustard

    Dinner: BBQ chicken (homemade bbq sauce using the diet coke recipe found on here)
    Egg custard dessert: sweetener, four egg yolks, cornflour, cocoa powder (think I used too much corn flour - felt a bit weird after this meal and cornflour is only a tolerated item, only 1tbsp a day, I later found out).

    Drinks: sparkling water, diet coke, still water, tea.

    Hi Netto, ham holds loads of salt and it could hold your weight loss up. Also try not to have any tolerated and see if that helps

    Enjoying reading your diary... As said above, keep away from all tolerated ingredients if you can, particularly if you're in a particular rush to lose weight. (And make sure your milk is SKIMMED and not semi skimmed!)

    It'll be great counting down to your wedding... :d)

    Just discovered Dukan diet and started today. Tried everything else. 13stone desperate to lose 4 stone to get back to what I was 4 years ago, for good health and because I'm 51 and already had a heart attack. Posting this as a positive affirmation that I'm going to do it . So with you all as my witnesses who know what it's like, any positive words would be greatly appreciated 😃

    Thanks sididd, working on my menus now as I'm not much of a cooking fan and diary has been started. Starting with 10 minutes on exercise bike and 10 minutes on vibration platform a day. Aim to increase by 10 min per week on each piece of equipment for a start. I do night shift as well which plays havoc with my eating patterns. It's extraordinarily hot at the moment where I live in Australia and it's been too easy to just eat fruit, a habit I need to break.. Again thanks for the words of encouragement, starting out is a very fragile time especially when friends and family in a joking tone say " sure your gonna do it", or " we've heard that before".

    Hi all,

    I'm back - being at school (I'm a trainee teacher) means I don't get the chance to post here during the week.

    By the end of first week, I'd lost 6 or 7lbs. Unfortunately, I'm now at the end of the second week and haven't lost any more!

    Do I need to cut out skimmed milk completely? I'd been having that and semi skimmed (but mainly semi as fiancé bought the wrong stuff in bulk the other week).

    My only other downfall has been occassionally reaching for a fruity yoghurt in desperation when there is nothing else available (eg school canteen) and perhaps saying yes to "chocolate sprinkles" on my cappuccino. But that is about 1g of choc powder!

    If I cut back to skimmed milk, non fruity yogs and no occasional sprinkles, this weight loss should continue, right?
