2 packs of chewing gum? I think these are restricted to six a day aren't they?
1.5 litres pepsi max? If you're stalling, I'd lose this for a few days to see...

Do your crunchy biscuits contain any dairy? (just totting up!)
crunchy biscuits contain 1 tbsp ff yoghurt but that's spread over 4 days worth of biscuits.

i've only just started on pepsi max (today is 3rd day) as i was on no added sugar vimto since starting dukan on 22 aug. Do u think I should i just drink water perhaps? can u suggest anything to flavour the water?

will try and limit chewing gum to 6 pieces also...gonna be a struggle as i use them when i fancy something sweet - but will try my hardest.

Hi there CG... Still looking for a reason for your stall, I'd certainly advise cutting down the Pepsi Max to the equivalent of one can a day. Have you not managed to switch to water? I know some don't like it at the outset, but most of us get used to it and end up preferring it on the whole.

I saw the thread this morning where those tins with tomato sauce are mentioned but, if you're stalling, I'd not touch them or - at least - use kitchen roll to mop off the offending sauce (which is what is advised on French Dukan!).

Glad you're losing again :)
well... I lost a kilo this morning :bliss:

so perhaps the stall was caused by the NAS Vimto I was drinking previously and too much SF gum?

i normally wouldn't have had a protein snack but yesterday had the mackerel in sauce so perhaps with all the exercise I do I was not eating enough protein?

how are you finding energy to do all this exercise!?!
Some days I find it difficult to do the usual stuff even, thank god I have the dogs to walk other wise I couldn't be able to do the walk even..
Seriously, were you always exercising or did you start with DD?
I've actually taken the exercise down a notch since starting Dukan! I was doing 3 runs a week (btwn 7km and 12km each time as training for a half marathon for charity) and gym classes in btwn.

I see daily exercise as the best anti - depressant. :)
My antidedepressant is my dogs :) and foster kittens nowadays, they are a joy to watch! I never did any type of regular exercise in my life, was thinking of starting the C25K when I first started the diet, but with the energy I have that plan destroyed itself:p.. Maybe with the extra carbs in conso I will feel better..
I should keep following your diary for inspiration!
i'm looking forward to conso for the weekly carb meal I can have as I plan to do a long early morning run the following day. There's no endorphin rush like the one I get after a 75 minute run.

I also can't wait for my weekly celebration meal - I believe there's no limitation to what type of food is allowed, only that no second helpings are to be had? I'm already planning to have a lamb garlic balti and chappatis and freeze half of it for the following weeks' celebration meal.. salivating at just the thought :D
