A Fork in the Road and I walked toward Dukan

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I am surprised that I hadn't heard about the Dukan Diet before reading about it in a copy of my mom's Hello Canada magazine about the Royal Wedding. Dukan was mentioned in the magazine 3-4 times. Curiosity being what it is, I searched it out, downloaded the e-book and tried it on for size on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Unfortunately, I was away from home and staying in a hotel for Tuesday and Wednesday so I coped as best I could with take out/restaurant meals.

Monday morning I weighed in at 255.3lbs. I began the protein only phase in full on Thursday morning. It is now Sunday morning and I just weighed myself....247lbs!!! That's a loss of 8 pounds!!!

I know, I know...protein only isn't balanced nutrition...Do I miss fruits and vegetables? You bet! Do I think I can keep this up for the long haul? I don't know, but I am going to try.

I read a quote somewhere that said, "Quit Stuffing Your Face and Face Your Stuff." I need to start facing my stuff...

    Hi Jille...one of my friends was talking about the Dukan Diet...I had never heard about it. I'm so glad that its working for you...it sounds like the Adkins? And, I didn't do good with that years ago...I need a balanced diet or I feel out of whack! But I absolutely LOVE the saying you gave "Stop stuffing your face & start facing your stuff" LOL...I need to paste that on my refrigerator....thanks for sharing! Best wishes!

    Dr. Oz spoke about that diet as well about a week ago. For me, short term is fine. Been doing Low Cal but went astray for awhile. Trouble is, when you do that, you regain very quickly. So beware!

    Thanks for your blog!

    sounds a bit like "Atkins" so good luck to you! I couldn't manage without a balanced diet even if it takes longer.
    Facing your stuff is a different issue....hope you continue to blog as things emerge that you have to deal with...it takes time and courage
    HOWEVER...you have Sparkpeople ready and willing to walk the journey with you, supporting without judging..so go for it!
    best wishes, Sandra
