Well I found out a lot about myself these past 2 days… I really don’t like plain yogurt, I really, really don’t like non-fat plain yogurt, fromage frais tastes the same as non-fat plain yogurt, but… I can eat it if it means losing 7 pounds in 4 days!!!
Today’s menu included eggs, more eggs and even more eggs… LOL. It also included a oat bran pancake (Dukan gallette), Luc Lac Beef… which after marinating all night in garlic, fresh ginger, soy sauce and oyster sauce was DELISH! I had non-fat yogurt mixed in with the juices from the marinade and TONS of water.
Tonight I had 2 small sirloin steaks, stir fried in a teeny amt of vegetable oil and with onions and garlic thrown in at the last minute… I am STUFFED!
One thing I have noticed is that I am not having any upper abdominal bloating and discomfort since I am not consuming any gluten products. So, even though I’m stuffed, I’m not uncomfortable.
I consumed more than 1.5 liters of water today in addition to 2 diet cokes, a cup of coffee and a cup of Earl Gray tea. I can’t believe I’m actually drinking as much water as I am! It’s been tough for me to adhere to drinking water rules in the past, the result is hourly trips to the bathroom, but I realize this means I’m flushing bad stuff out!
So that’s the end of Day 2 of the Attack Phase of the Dukan program. I’m feeling great! Now I’m off for a nice 20 minute walk…
Very very interested in doing this…heard really good things about it as i am am gluten intolerant might do me good. Did you buy the book or use the internet or what?
Caroline… I got the book here at the BooksPlus here in Al Ain… I’m sure you could find it in AD. I really suggest buying the book AND reading it… word for word. I haven’t done that before. I did it on my 18 hours of flying back to the sand pit last week. He explains WHY you need to eat this way. I also like this program over Atkins because Atkins allows you to be high fat and this program doesn’t. Anyway… you decide to do it, we can be Dukan buddies 🙂
That’s great, Sandi!! Don’t blame you on the yogurt thing…I’m not even a huge fan of fruit yogurt. As to water thing, well, at least you’ll be able to keep us posted hourly while in the potty… 🙂
Yup… I have WordPress on my iPhone! 😛
I am getting used to the yogurt, I’m mixing it up with the meats and last night put onions and fresh squeezed lime juice in it… not bad 🙂
Thanks for the encouragement, Teri!
You are doing GREAT! I am so happy for you!
Thanks, Shannon 😉

Billie… easiest explained here: http://www.dukandiet.co.uk/ I bought the book, and read every single word… which I recommend for anyone else who wants to embark on this program.
It is basically a huge life-style change, but one for the better!
