    What happens when you cheat?

    I met a friend on dukan yesterday (th one who inspired me) at a BBQ and she insisted I could be naughty sometimes. I refuse to have the salmon because there was a drop of oil and she insisted it was fine every now and then. She says she cheats sometimes but is still loosing.

    When you cheat you loose all your hard work, right?

    In the end I did have some salmon. I was starving and by that time drawning in diet coke... The cook guarantee it was just a drop... I Hope I didn't ruin everything!

    Obviously it's best not to cheat BUT if you do have a cheat make sure that it stops at that particular cheat and you get back on track straight away. My problem is that one cheat leads to two, then three and next thing I know I'm back to where I started!!

    Cheating is like pressing the footbrake in the car - do it once and it slows you down a bit, and might even help you through a tricky moment (like a social event). Do it too often and it will slow you down a lot - or stall the car completely.

    And everytime the car stalls, it's a bit harder to get it started again - and then, before you know it, it's off the road, at you are back where you started.

    Moral: don't cheat, and if you do cheat, don't make a habit of it.

    I had low fat cheese instead of fat free a couple of times, it had minimum affect on the scale, but when I had onken ff vanilla (thought it was OK, mistake!) it made me increase the first 2 days and it took almost a week to start losing again..
    Once in a while, using a bit more fat than you are supposed to does not do the same damage as having carbs..
    Maybe what your friend meant is having a piece of salmon, even if it is cooked with oil is better than starving yourself


    goal 1- 10 kg loss
    goal 2- hello sixties!!
    goal 3- 15 kg loss
    goal 4 - 65 kg!

    I echo the words above. In addition, I usually find that the first "cheat" is the easiest to avoid and, after one, the others follow quite naturally!

    Do you always weigh at exactly the same time of day?

    Just to reassure you - I had a gala on Sunday (martini, sunday lunch at Simpsons in the Strand, wine) - and the scales are 3lbs higher today. I know that they will be back to normal by Friday.

    Many factors affect our weight - water, cycle, salt etc etc so, while it's unlikely that the salmon caused your increase, something did, and if you stick to the plan it'll drop off again!

    That much oil shouldnt affect you much really, dukans viniagarette (which is in the book and absolutely yummy!) has a teaspoon of oil so a drop shouldnt make much difference.
    Attempt 2 of Dukan (Went of the rails beginning of November)

    Week 1 = -9lbs (TOTM midway though the week)

    If I cheat at all *and I really don't unless it's something completely unavoidable like the time the tyre burst and we were stuck in the middle of nowhere starving * it puts my weight loss back by a full week...

    I cannot begin to express how angry I am. I did not cheat (apart from grilled salmon with a drop of oil) and this morning the scales showed 62.9kg.
    I felt like crying and still do. This is what happens to me in every diet. I don't cheat and don't loose.

    I know it's early and I should see what happens at my official weight in (Saturday) but that really got me upset. I won't give up but feel horrible right now.

    Maybe you had more salt than normal yesterday or TOM might be affecting your loss... You need to relax a bit and see what will happen..
    If you can resist, don't weigh yourself until Saturday.. I get upset for a few minutes when I see an increase but I don't focus on it, you sound like you are better off weighing yourself every week..

    There's no point in getting upset at all in fact it's totally counterproductive because with this diet it'll be off again, and sometimes more, in a few days. If you didn't 'cheat' more than a bit of salmon in oil I would question whether you've eaten something else that you shouldn't be eating or perhaps you are retaining water or not eating enough protein. Either way don't worry, give it a few days and it'll be gone again!

    Slightly off topic but - Atropos this is exactly where I was planning to go once I made it to the 'gala meals' phase! OH was asking just last week where we could go for supper once I 'was through this part of the diet and into the treats section' and suggested Simpsons!

    Can't wait.......might be a while yet though.......

    Alessandra; if I were you I would stop weighing yourself every day. From day to day everyone's weight yo-yos. It's not fat going on, it's fluid retention and that can be anything from dehydration to excess salt to TOTM....or it could be that you've drunk a lot that day or you haven't pooed. If you let your emotions be ruled by day to day weight fluctuations then you're in a hide into nowhere
