Hi all - I thought I would take advantage of this Diary section to keep track of my experiences with Dukan. I am on day three of my first attack phase and so far so good - but I know I will need motivation in the future, and I'm hoping that writing some of this down will inspire me when the going gets tougher.
Firstly - some background:
I am 45 years old. I am too fat. Like many middle aged men, I am terrified. Heart attacks, strokes, complications from diabetes and the inability to find jeans in normal shops. I already have to search for shirts to fit properly. A recent tuxedo/dinner suit hunt was made much tougher by my weight.
Starting out on this diet - I am 21st 5lbs.
I decided on Dukan because a friend has had some success, but also because the attack phase matches my current eating habits and I read some positive stories about how this can impact type 2 diabetes.
I bought a set of amazing bathroom scales that connect directly to fitbit and upload my weight, and I wear a flex tracker all the time anyway to track movements and sleep.
Hope that isn't too much or too little info. I'll post day one and day two thoughts next.
