I started the dukan diet after someone recommended it to me saying it worked wonders for her and i thought i gave it a try.
I must admit, I didn't have the guts to weigh myself before I started, but I noticed losing some weight after the 6 days attack phase and I convinced myself to get on the scale. It said 70kg.
That was a week ago and since then not much of a change. I am alternating 1 PP/ 1 PV and I'm trying not to slip or when and if I do (for example at some point I had a bit of regular 3% fat yogurt or another day I ate some sardines in oil, draining them as much as I could, because there wasn't anything else in the fridge from the allowed list) I am very careful what I eat for the rest of the day.
Until now I haven't started exercising, but I think I'm going to. I have kind of a hectic schedule, I am constantly moving from one part of town to the other and I am tired most of the time so that is why I haven't included a training programme.
I am 1,72 m tall and my goal weight is 58-60 kg. With Christmas knocking on the door it would really help to see the scale going down a bit to keep me motivated when faced with all those Chrismas treats.
Anyway, I have a few questions and didn't know where to ask so I figured maybe some of you guys could help:
- How do you manage dehydration? Although I drink like 3 liters + of water daily, my skin and lips are always really dry and I am always thirsty...Should I eat less of something...? I don't know, meat... or just keep drinking more water (if that is even possible)
- What should I do if I can't avoid having something to drink when going out? what would you say it's the best way to get back on track?
- Is it normal not to lose weight at start? Has it happened to you and if so, how did you overcome it? How much till I should see some result?
Thank you in advance
