Daily Progress (Thursday)

I’m down another lb…(.8 lbs) since Monday. Close enough. I’m really happy that my Dukan Diet Book came in the mail yesterday. I finished reading up to the recipes so I’ll be trying out a lot of new recipes very soon.

My daughter has started the diet this week also. She has only a little weight to lose so her attack phase was only 3 days long not 6 like mine. She loved the Oat Bran cookies so perhaps I’ll post that recipe the way it is. Of course, she was feeling a little weak from her dieting at the time she ate them. It’s quite possible she would have raved about eating cardboard.

While looking for new recipes I ran across this tidbit. Listen to Dr. Dukan talk about his diet on the BBC. Here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p007vxdf

Well, I will be posting those recipes tomorrow. See you then!

Daily Progress (Monday)

Filed under: Results — Brenda @ 11:13 pm

 I am now 2 weeks into this diet and I HAVE lost weight…about 8.4 lbs. Today the scales showed a drop of almost a pound. This is after a four day stall (or plateau as I have always called it.)  But, I am not giving up! I have not really cheated at all so far. If anything, I’m eating WAY LESS than I should be, which has probably kicked my metabolism into “Starvation Mode”. I need to change this behavior so…


…today, I had a wonderfully big breakfast on my PP Cruise day. Turkey Sausage, 3 Eggs (1 Yolk) scrambled with a NF Sharp Cheese slice and some chopped Canadian Bacon. I forgot about lunch, however. I was just too busy at work. So, now it is dinner time. I plan to have some NF Cottage Cheese and some leftover Roast Beef I cooked last night.


Yesterday, I tried a recipe for OatBran Cookies. They were AWFUL! I’m going to change up the recipe and post it here if I can improve them any.


(If it seems as though I’m obsessed with eating food…or managing food…or planning to eat food…or not eating food…you’re right.)
