    Dukan diet and one cheat day?

    Hiya,

    I am on day 6 of the attack stage, I will finish this tomorrow (thus 7 days on this).

    I am on a hen weekend saturday / night, im going to be realistic and accept I wont stick to the diet on Saturday.

    How much will this impact my weight loss?

    Should I do another week attack after this day?

    Thanks everyone! if anyone has cheated on this doet how did it impact your weightloss / efforts?

    Thanks

    Dukan is a pretty much all or nothing diet. The occasional slip might happen and afterwards you should do 2/3 pp days, drink plenty of water and up the exercise, but every slip becomes harder to recover from.

    Perhaps try and eat something dukan friendly beforehand so you don't end up having to eat something that's not suitable and try and limit your drinks - maybe every other drink could be a diet coke?

    Thanks!

    I am really worried as I dont want to cheat. The hen isnt local to me and we are travelling early Saturday and back Sunday morning. They have arranged a cocktail making session, champagne cruise and a three course meal! I really dont want to cheat, i have been so worked up I thought about not going! I will try and pick the best options I can i.e. normal breakfast Saturday, lunch (?) no idea and evening meal with try and pick meat and not eat potatoes or have a pudding.... just the coktails and champaign really...................

    I cant not go and I will try my hardest to be good. I am going to do another attack after the day for 7 days! I quite like the attack stage so it wont bother me doing it again for a week...

    There's really no need to go back on attack. Move on to cruise before the weekend and it will allow you more choice. Do you know the restaurant you're eating at? If so can you have a look at the menu and choose what you'll pick beforehand? Ask for your meal without potatoes and just have the meat and vegetables and proclaim yourself too full for pudding!

    Don't forget about your oatbran too. Make up a galette or muffins for each day that you'll be away so you can take them with you - pack extra if you think you might need it.

    Seriously don't go back to attack when you get back - you're still very early in the diet, so you shouldn't expect to put on too much if you make your meal choices wisely and your body will be desperately in need of vegetables by now. 2 pp days on your return and then back to vegetables will suffice.

    I hope you enjoy the hen without feeling left out.
    My sister discovered she was pregnant just days before her own hen - she was the only one at the table not able to drink!

    I would certainly go on to cruise before you leave for the weekend, and take a look at the travel tips thread, so you can pack a few extra snacks and supplies to take with you.

    And remember - you won't be alone if you need to stick to meat, veggies, salad and water; a good venue will know how to cater for people with diabetes, or pregnancy, or allergies.

    and, if you need to make an excuse, say you're unwell / on antibiotics or something rather than "on a diet". People are less likely to try to convince you to come over to their camp and make themselves feel better about their own eating or drinking to excess.

    Had you spoken to us before, we'd have advised not to start before this thing... but you're here now, so good luck!

    You might be better trying something else if you find you're not losing well with this diet. If you don't stay in ketosis, you could stall for ages whereas with a diet which doesn't operate in the same fashion, you would lose on low calorie.

    Up to you though - but this diet is tough on the morale in the morning on the scales if not followed strictly.

    I went slightly off plan on mothers day and again this week on my OH's birthday, apart from one slightly naughty meal on each occasion I got straight back on track, the scales were evil and I weighed heavier for a few days after but if you stick with it it comes back off, I still felt/feel slimmer even though the scales are only just catching up again! If you are in ketosis you should eat some carbs to come out of it before drinking alcohol as this can be dangerous!
    Enjoy the hen w/e but then get back on plan as soon as you can.

    and the weight loss is never quite as fast as the first or second time you do this diet... (take it from one who knows!!).

    As for dangers of drinking in ketosis, that's interesting!

    I'm interested in this as well, and would like to learn more.

    I only recently discovered that Alcohol is treated in the body almost as a "super-carb" - that is, just as the body will chose to burn carbs before fat (producing energy and storing the excess as fat and glycogen in the muscles and liver) so it will chose to burn alcohol before carbs, again producing energy, fat and glycogen - which is why both heavy drinking and excessive carb intake (all those corn syrup fizzy drinks!) can lead to fatty liver disease.
