Well, it's been eight days since I began my weight loss journey with the Dr Dukan Diet. I feel really good, no tummy troubles or moods bordering depression or excessive tiredness. Amazingly the Attack Phase has been more of a breeze than I had imagined, especially since I'm not carnivorous by nature. At any rate I will continue towords the last two days of this phase before I move into the Cruise Phase which will alternate my pure protein menu with fresh veggies that are starch free;which means no corn, carrots, potatos, peas or beans.
While on this diet I'm reminded of the TWA Stewardess Diet that I used whenever I wanted to drop 10 pounds in three days - what can I say, I was young and prococious and didn't think how it would screw up my matabolism thirty years later. On that particular diet you had to eat alot of lean meats also as well as a half a grapefruit with each meal. It worked on a chemical breakdown and I felt like I'd been drug through a pinhole backwards by the time it had ended! But I was ten pounds lighter! Needless to say I bounced right back to my overweight self in no time and was yo-yoing with this diet like I was competing in the yo-yo national championsips.
The great thing about Dr Dukans diet is he educates you about your body's nature to sabotage allowing you to counter attack by training that old nature into a new nature that stablizes at your true weight. This means that when you stick to the full course all the way to the Transitional phase you can't lose. Which is exactly what I am about to do!
