    Sibbi's Dukan Diary

    2nd time on Dukan, 1st diary. I lost 2 stone on Dukan 3 years ago (start weight 10 5, DrD recommended weight 8 5). I maintained my ideal weight (and even dropped below at times) for over a year, but over the past two years I have gradually been gaining. I seem to maintain without too much effort when I am in a food routine, but when I fall outside of my usual routine (holidays, Christmas etc) I gain a few pounds that I don't manage to loose again. 2 Christmas holidays, and 2 or 3 other holidays later, I weighed in at 9 6 this morning. I have now regained more than half of what I lost, and this is the heaviest I have been since my pre- Dukan days, most of my clothes don't fit (I had a big clear out once I reached my ideal weight) and I am scared that my increase seems to be accelerating. Time to get it back under control! My aim is to be back to 8 5 before Christmas.

    Day 1- 9st 6lbs

    B- dukan muffin, vanilla yogurt
    Lunch- 2 chicken breasts
    Dinner- 2 boiled eggs, dukan muffin
    Drinks- 4 coffees with skimmed milk, 2ltr water, 2 mint tea

    1st day has not been as difficult as I expected .....

    Day 3- 9st 2lbs

    B- 2 Dukan muffins
    Lunch- Turkey Breast
    Dinner- Chicken Wings

    Drinks- 4 coffees with skimmed milk, at least 2ltr water

    Still on week 1, and I broke one of the biggest Dukan rules- failed to plan: out for drinks after work, managed to avoid the drinks and stick to water but I had to eat something and chicken wings, while not a good option, was the least bad .... I was planning to start cruise today, but may put it off by one day to compensate.

    Day 4- 9st 3lbs

    B- 2 Dukan muffins
    Lunch- Tuna + salad
    Snack- 2 hard boiled eggs
    Dinner- Steak + salad

    Drinks- 1 tea with skimmed milk, 1 coffee with skimmed milk, 1ltr water, 1 diet coke, 2 mint 2

    Not too concerned about the gain, was expected and I know what I need to do to avoid it happening again.
    Decided I needed some veg so have moved on to cruise, might to an extra pp during the week next week to compensate

    Day 5- 9st 3lbs

    B- Dukan muffin + vanilla yogurt
    Lunch- chicken with Cajun spices
    Snack- 2 Slices of ham, dukan muffin
    Dinner- chicken and ratatouille

    Drinks- 4 coffee with skimmed milk, 2ltr water

    Today should have been a pp day but it's tougher at the weekend- has anyone had success with a modified rhythm: pp breakfast and lunch, pp dinner? I might see how that works for weekends and follow the regular 1 PP / 1 PV Monday to Friday.

    Day 8- 9st 2 lbs
    PP

    B- Dukan muffin with plain yogurt
    Lunch- Chicken with herbs
    Dinner- More chicken + roast beef slices (left over from yesterday)
    Snack- Dukan muffin

    Drinks- 3 coffee with skimmed milk, 2 ltr water (will have more water later and maybe a hearbal tea)

    1st week over. Its been
    harder that I remembered but other than the chicken wings slip up I have more of less followed plan. 4 lbs down- I would have been happy with that except that I was already there after 2 days and for the rest of the week I just flickered up and down. Anyhow on to a new week and so far this one has started well .....

    Hi Sibbi,
    You obviously know your way around the Dukan diet! I know exactly what you mean re having to plan things out in advance to avoid potential disaster. You did well though! I used to favour the 4PP (Mon to Thurs), 3PV (Fri to Mon) rhythm with weigh ins on Friday morning. You might find that easier. I love to have a Sunday roast and this always made it easier!
    Given that you have so little to lose, your first week's loss is great!

    Thanks Maintainer.

    I know I should be pleased with the loss- but still frustrated because it was definitely faster last time (though I did have more to lose) and because I saw that 4 lb loss already after 2 days attack. I am consoling myself that this is somehow my body adjusting to those 4lbs gone (forever). Managed another PP day today so that will help.

    Agree with you on Sunday roast- my favourite meal of the week, and easy to fit with Dukan PV.
