Switching from Atkins to Dukan
So, here I am - first day on Dukan. In the past I lost 2 stones on Atkins (October 2013 - March 2014). But since then had to go through one failed IVF and a combination of hormones and fat foods seemed to wake up my gallbladder stones, so I had to remove it all together.
After all, shame on me, I resorted to my favorite antidepressant - food glorious food! And since I could not eat anything fat due to stones - resorted to all these nasty carbs etc The result - gained back one stone in less than a month :(
I loved Atkins due to its flexibility etc, but without gallbladder need to switch to something less fatty hence decided to try Dukan which seems to be some sort of Atkins adaptation (sorry Dukan but your fat publisher story didn't convince me much - too many similarities with Attack phase etc) But I guess I still got this after Atkins syndrome so I've been wondering:
- yogurt thing seem to be really worrying - could not find a brand which would be both without sugar (sweetener based) and 0 fat. Did you succeed in finding one?
- crab sticks, really??? with only 35% of fish inside
- Dukan is really strict about the food list, but what I liked about Atkins that it did allow flexibility. Did anyone try to "play" with the food list? Will konjac noodles do any harm? Any snack ideas as all I can think about beyond crab sticks are prawns which gets really expensive?
Sorry to sound skeptical - I guess it's adoption curve...
