My journey back to goal Dukan round 2
My round one journey started in September 2012 I got to goal by Christmas Eve 2012 felt really happy & healthy, gained over Christmas but lost most of that in January, then got struck down by a nasty flu in February which I never really recovered from, I ended up feeling poorly in one way or another till June. The Dr's told me it was IBS but I think it is more an intolerance to gluten, I have a very sever and nasty reaction to gluten if I eat it. I didn't eat properly for 3 months, I lost a bit more weight but once I figured out what I could eat I soon regained the weight then Christmas struck and since then I have been steadily gaining to be back at my starting weight in 2012
So enough is enough I feel horrible sad hate how big I look, so I am back on Dukan.
i have just completed my first week with 3 days of attack, I have to say I am a little disappointed with this weeks results. I have lost 4lb which sounds good but I lost more than that and then seem to have gained some of it back while not cheating and now haven't lost for 4 days, I feel so demoralised when I obey the rules but don't lose. Oh well on with week 2 fingers crossed for a better result this week.
I could really do with some PP days evening meal inspiration though.
well done you for getting back on it!!! Sounds like you've been through it health wise...
It is demoralising when you've followed the rules 100%, my instant gut reaction is to go off the rails, and the more I loose the more focused I stay....I try to do 2 or 3 days attack again but only if I've got the determination! But I'm sure you will be fine just cruising...
But don't beat yourself up over past results...think of the bigger picture...you sound like a pro... The way I think I've done it once, I can do it again..
I'm making dukan chilli con crane with cauliflower rice tonight if that's any good?

Sorry you asked for PP ideas!! Ummm fish with white sauce? I struggle with PP days... Chicken tikka & onions? Ham & babybel omelette?
Thanks Andi, I know loads of people use cauli rice but I really really can't abide cauliflower I couldn't even consider eating it which is a shame really.
I had a sudden idea and dug out my slim rice & noodles which makes a PP much easier. I had some tonight with my tea which although delish really wasn't dukan friendly fat wise but I can tweak it a bit I think, I just hope I haven't done too much damage.
Is slim rice allowed? Or is is something that works for you? Don't worry about the fat....fresh day tomorrow xxx
Slim rice e.t.c is another brand of Konica flour based products, almost zero fat carbs & gluten.
scales this morning showed I had gained my total weekly loss back and with a PV day today it don't think this week will be very successful.
I take it you weigh every day Ann? Thanks for the slim rice tip? Do they sell it in Holland & Barrett? Xxx
I only weigh every day when it isn't going so well or in the first week so last week was my first week and I lost 2 days in a row then gained (while still in attack) then lost and gained so just keeping an eye on it but once I know it is coming off consistently I only weigh once a week.
yes they do it in H&B last week it was on the penny sale but next week it is buy one get one half price.
Really Really likes to post!

There are lots of great recipe threads around here. I haven't done pp days for a while, but I'm sure I can remember a few things! How about...
- home made burgers
- fish / seafood soup
- paella with slim rice
- pretty much any pasta dish using slim rice / noodles: I even did a spag bol with quorn and konjac once!
- smoked salmon with cottage cheese dip
- omelettes or quiches (make them in silicon moulds)
- salt and pepper chicken or cola chicken
Ok now I'm getting hungry, so I'd better get some sleep :-)
Thank you my lovely some great ideas there.
i really don't seem to be doing too well will update my signature in a mombut nothing lost this week and I have been good.
each week goes like this
Monday - PP
Tuesday - PV
Wednesday - PP
Thursday - PV
Friday - PP
Saturday - PV
Sunday - PV
Although on the week end it may only be one meal that has veg in it. Weekday mornings is either boiled eggs or poached eggs & turkey rashers, pp days is cold meat & cottage cheese for lunch & PV is salad & cold meat last weeks evening meals were
s- tagine & slim rice
s - salad & cold roast chick breast
m - smoked haddock & boiled eggs
t - stuffed peppers
w- Mongolian beef & slim rice
t - crackslaw
f - Spanish chicken & slim rice
how frustrating!!! I take it you've lost before using slim rice? Sorry if I'm asking really stupid obvious questions but have you done the walk & water? Cos your weeks meals look gorgeous & totally dukan friendly....

Thanks Andi not stupid questions, yes have done the water, nearly all the walk (I work in a hotel so have to walk loads anyway!) slim rice I didn't have before but it has no carbs or fat, I have taken a pic of the packet just in case I am missing something?
Thanks Maintainer I have never had a stall week before but I know I will get over it onwards & downwards.
having said all of that I have had a bad day food wise today, I ate some gluten last night by accident and although I didn't get the usual bad reaction I have felt shaky and a bit odd today so gave in when I got in from work and ate a banana then stole some Doritos from my son But I had cottage cheese & ham for my lunch only the cottage cheese was from Asda which I don't normally get and as soon as I tasted it I could taste how sweet it was and OMG it actually has sugar in it, not Dukan friendly and vile to boot so I threw it away Steak and eggs for tea and a new day tomorrow!
Why have I never heard of Slim Rice before!
Is it good for Cruise phase?
It should be Matt is is no carb no fat no sugar as far as I can see
