I like your exercise routine. I'm having a hard time getting back into working out. I do have a home dumbbell routine; maybe I should start with that. And Dr. Dukan requires a walk every day, I need to at least do that if I don't feel like running.

What times of day do you work out?

Hi Maria,
Sorry for the absence, but I was called away. My walks (6 x 30mins per week)
happen before sunrise . It's too hot and humid here in our summer. My pilates and weights sessions (3 times/week) happen around 9am in a spare room we have here. It has mirrored wardrobe and it's good to see that your movements are spot on (or close).

So I did my 3 days of Attack and have reached a happy 121.2 lbs. I guess I won't need to spend long in cruise. I wasn't at all hungry during those 3 days.
I substituted flaxmeal for the OB as I didn't have any left. It compares very favorably with the OB.

As of today I'll have 2 tabsp OB and 2 tabsp flaxmeal + 1/2 cup water and 100g (3 oz) yoghurt as a porridge for breakfast.

Lunch will be 140g (5oz) canned tuna and 100g celery with a dash of balsamic

Dinner slice of chicken meatloaf (homemade and 3 oz cauliflower)

Snack 100g (3 oz) cottage cheese

As you can see, I'm a very 'no fuss' eater.


How did you fare after Attack? Look forward to chatting again and supporting each other.

By the way, before attack I was 2.2 kg ( 4 lbs) heavier. I will think twice before consuming empty calories again. It takes a lot of effort (exercise and food restriction) to stay in my set goal range....you too?

No joke! I'm not overweight, I just want to lose a few pounds as my own personal goal for race season (run races and triathlons).

I have hypothyroidism.
I am pre-menopausal.
I am a binge eater.

This "eat all you want as long as it is on the allowable foods list" is not working for me. I'm going to continue the diet, but I do better with restrictions. I'm going to go back to a set macronutrient ratio and calorie counting for awhile.

Likewise ...not overweight but need to be in my happy weight range. I'm a keen macro and calorie counter and use Calorie King (better for us Aussies). I want to work up to a low GI/Mediterranean this month and Dukan is a good way to slowly increase carbs.

Another 55.0 kg (121.2 lbs) scale reading this morning.
Gee,I wish I could run. I tried, but it's too 'jarring' for me. A 4mph walk will have to do.

Dukan progress

Hi Pina and Maria,

How is Dukan working for you these days? I enjoyed reading your exchange. I just started Dukan today. I don't have the book yet (just ordered it), but have been watching inspiring Dukan YouTube videos.

I have been LCHF (<60 carbs per day) for about 6 years (grain/gluten/processed food free) with 2 attempts at ketogenic during that time. Most recently, I was testing my blood ketones twice daily which were consistently about 2.2-4.4 milimolers , but I still didn't lose wt. Although low carb got rid of my severe constant hunger, it has not given me the wt loss I desired. I am very insulin resistant, pre-diabetic, and post menopausal with about 30 lbs to lose. I did bring down my A1C from 5.8 to 5.4 eating low carb, so at least that's good.

I also tried intermittent fasting (various formats) but find that I overeat when I break the fast and it was not successful for wt loss. Bought Jason Fung's The Obesity Code Book, which is great, however, I just hate fasting so feel it's not the plan for me, although it seems to help many. I think I have too many psychological ties to food. I am hoping the Dukan diet works. Although it will be LOW fat, compared to what I've been doing for years, perhaps that's the issue for me. I figure I will get enough healthy fats from the grass fed beef, wild caught fish, etc.

Cheers and good luck to you both and to any other Dukan-ers out there!!

Dukan is definitely more prescriptive than fasting or LCHF ( I was also a fan of the latter) but be careful when you hit Consolidation (adding carbs). I would advise to add the carbs slowly - say 1 serve of carb/meal/week. If your body accept that then after a week, add the 2nd serve of carbs. This will avoid any likely weight gain.
All the best with the good doctor's plan. Did you know Kate Middleton is a follower?

Thanks!

Thanks, Pina, for the good advice. I will be careful not to add too many carbs when I get to that stage. It's encouraging to see someone who has maintained their loss on Dukan. Yes, I heard about Kate Middleton--it certainly works for her!
