Mmmm! Strange title you might think......but if you had been on the Dukan diet since Monday 3rd October you may very well feel the same!!!! Actually technically speaking I did not start it until Tuesday as I had some stuff that needed eating in the fridge and that something was tuna with cannelloni beans (the beans are a no no! Why? I love em!) LOL
That's not quite a week yet but I had a burning desire for some raspberries on Wednesday!
To put it into context....I eat raspberries every morning with my Greek yogurt (give or take the odd day when I run out or they have taken on a bit of a bloom that could induce botulism if eaten HOL ;) ) and you are not allowed to have fruit until you reach your "Consolidation" stage...and for me that is not going to be till 14th December in theory.....but quite frankly I can't see me keeping this up for that long!
To make it even harder the first 3 days when I was on the "Attack" phase is all about protein and I'm not a great protein eater at the best of times :(
Thank goodness you are allowed low fat yogurt I say!
Anyway I thought I'd share this with you fabulous people and then perhaps I can not back down till it actually starts working!!! HOL
I have to tell you I stuck to it to the letter on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and come Friday I was allowed to start adding vegetables....way hey!!! I can't begin to describe how I looked forward to the home made veg soup I had prepared for my lunch that day :)))))
Unfortunately it was a night out with the girls on Friday too but I had steak and salad so that was fine......the 5 (or was it 6!) gin and slimline tonics?
Well you've guessed....they are not allowed on the Dukan diet!!!
Hey life is short.....I don't go out that often......
but I weighed myself this morning..............I only usually do it once a week as it has become a bit depressing since the trip to Paris as I have not lost a single pound! True, I have not gained a single pound either but that's not the point. I need to loose some more weight or when I'm called back to the docs for a check up with the type 2 diabetes thing they are going to think I'm not trying!!
.....yes I weighed myself on Monday and I was 77.5 kilo still.....this morning I was 76 kilo :) so something has kick started the weight loss again....even with the G and T's.......phew!!
I'm off to watch Strictly.......no Cava for me tonight....just soda water, more ruddy protein and some yogurt to make me feel better :)
