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...
