To Dukan or not to Dukan
After trying every diet on the planet I'm finally giving Dr Dukan a go. I've been reading about it for months and I'm now ready to commit :-)
I bought my oat bran months ago but have just got back from Tesco's with all my meat, poultry and diary products, so I'm ready to go. I'm enjoying my "last supper" which in the main consists of rosÚ wine . I'm soo gonna miss my alcohol but I have to get these 44lbs off once and for all.
I've been reading all you lovely Dukaner's diaries and recipes and you guys seem like a friendly and supportive bunch. The inspirational photos are great - a lot of you have done soo well. I'm hoping for similar results as I just cannot stay as I am.
For the past year I've seen great results following a vlcd ( Cambridge & slim and save) but I just cannot go back there. I've even dabbled a bit with JUDD (that was a disaster), so now it's seeing how I cope with real food albeit low carb!!
Yesterday I weighed 203 and I need to get down to 160 - that's a loss of 43lbs. Dr D says I can get there by the end of May, which is ample time for my Caribbean cruise in July ;-)
I Have a diary in the silver members forum so I've not started a diary here but I wanted to say hi to everyone and Happy New Year - 2013 is the year we achieve all that we want to
Yikes.... Weighed in this morning at 205.4 OMG, that last supper was really something ;-)
Hi Hun, yep they are a supportive bunch here & very friendly. Start a diary so we can get to know you x
Totally achievable amount of weight to lose.... I have done VLCD and every other diet going and agree I couldn't go back to VLCD - Dukan is great, strict but you can eat loads..... Someone suggested mentally putting all the Dukan allowed foods in a basket to chose from and make the most of it! Worked for me..... Good luck and start a diary with your menus on so that you can keep track and people can help you out if needed!
TW - Achieved 16th July 2012!!!!!!!!Thank you sooooo much to all my MM friends!
HI AND WELCOME Dukan is very doable and advice and support second to none xxx I agree start anew diary on hear also xxx good luck

welcome, its the diet to end em all, it really really does work. Committ to it 100% and don't let anything side track you. If you feel you are gonna cheat then control it, have one thing and one thing only (mine is ice cream bars LOL) and then ignore it and get back to dukan for real.
Loads of support, advice, hints and tips on here, always something to read LOL.
