One Week of Dukan June 18, 2011

Filed under: weight loss journey — hardierlime @ 9:39 pm

The good news is that because I am nursing, I do not have to start out with the “Attack Phase” of  the Dukan diet, or even the “Cruise Phase”. I am getting to start out at the “Consolidation Phase”. This phase of the Dukan diet specifies the following:

  • All foods allowed in the Attack Phase
  • All vegetables allowed in the Cruise Phase
  • 1.5oz of cheese
  • 1 serving of fruit
  • 2 servings of whole grain bread
  • 2 “celebration” meals a week
  • 1 Pure Protein day a week
  • 1.5ltrs of water a day (equivalent – 51oz)

My daughter’s birthday was last weekend, so I started out a little higher than I wanted to.

I won’t be doing the food log every week, and I REALLY wanted to share my weigh in this morning. 207.4

Four and a half pounds. And I broke through where I’d been stalled. And I’d been cheating the whole time. Makes me wonder how well I’d do if I stuck closer to it all. I’ll continue to post weight updates. I’m excited that my goals seem to finally be in sight.
