Soooo like many others I have tried many many diets; starvation, binging/purging, weight watchers, calorie counting, very low calorie and most recently Slimming World and 5:2 fasting. I liked Slimming World, however felt I needed something a bit more strict and structured. So started 5:2 (the only diet I have ever lost a substantial amount of weight on) but it took me straight back to my old, unhealthy binging/purging behaviours. Then just binging and not purging. So now I am left at my heaviest weight EVER and am not happy. Have not given Dukan a go before but it seems a lot different to any diet I have done before. I like the fact that it is very strict in the first phase and gives initial big weight loss: exactly what I need right now! And lots of people on here seem to have done amazingly on it! So bought the book and although I have not read it all yet, I am starting tomorrow! Would LOVE any advice about it, and as I will be posting my food plan on here, any thoughts on what I am eating would be much appreciated.
Calculating my stats on the online Dukan calculator tells me I should only do attack for 3 days, but going to try and manage 5 to get a good effect. It also tells me I should be at goal weight at the end of May.. amazing!!! And literally just in time for my holiday. Really hope I can stick to this!
Current weight: 11st 7lbs
'True' weight: 9st 10lbs
Goal date: 29/05/14
Plan for Day 1:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs x 2
Dinner: FF greek yogurt, oatbran + cinnamon
Tea: 2 chicken breasts, roasted (no skin)
Having a look around this forum and hopefully going to try some muffins people speak about soon.. just want to get the basics right first!
Wish me luck!!
