Hey… everyone going up and down on dukan…listen up. This diet works and when it doesnt its because you have either hit a plateau or you are cheating. I read a lot of posts that say, “i had a bad weekend” or “i ate a few bad things this week”….
YOU CANNOT CHEAT ON THIS DIET AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED. If you continue to use the book as a guide it works. Dukan says that any cheating is like bursting a balloon with a needle. I went from 121 to 101 and am now almost fighting to stablize my weight from going down anymore because i am still losing from sticking to the principles of the book. Cheating won’t work. If you hit a plateau, read the book. You need to up your water and up your walking. I would often go 2 weeks without losing a pound then suddenly drop 2 or 3. I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THAT THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER DIET WHERE YOU CAN JUMP ON AND OFF THE BANDWAGON. Folks…this is the easiest diet or lifestyle in the world….You can eat without portion control and with recipes like Dukanitout provides, it is a cake walk. Also, Dukan specifically says DONT DO TONS OF EXERCISE WHILE YOU ARE DIETING. Folks…I didnt do any exercise except the occasional walk and it worked. Follow it to a T and it will work. You have to want it…you have to believe in it…and it will work. Personally, I find the reward of being in shape so much more appealing than cheating. I think you really need to think about that when you reach for a cheat food. Good luck. Read the book…over and over and over. You will always pick up something new.
Cannot believe that I have lost over two stone since July. I have been on Consolidation since 26 November and holding steady. It really does work.
I was able to lose what I set out to lose before my daughter’s wedding and am so glad I did, now that I look back at all the photos. I’m certainly proud of my efforts, but even more thrilled that my daughters are proud of their mom.
Keep up the great work!
