Dukan Diet: Week 1

As I posted, I am doing a new "eating plan." It's the Dukan Diet, the French Protein Diet or The Middleton's Pre-Wedding diet (lol). It's a low-carb, protein thing very much like the Metabolism Miracle I was doing before. Only, low fat. 

My report... 

I am very happy with the first week of this diet. I still need to add the required 20-30 minutes of exercise. I don’t necessarily have low energy because of the diet but I’ve been sluggish this week. Grouchy. More tired than usual. I am in my last week of class for May and that’s is a little stressful for me.
I found out (too late) that I am not allowed pudding (of any kind, no sugar free/fat free) but can still have Jello (the jiggly kind!). I am unsure about the Protein Shakes but continuing to have them because they satisfy the chocolate craving and keep me on my toes about breakfast.

Here is my week:

Day 1: Thursday, May 19, 2011

Starting weight: 158 (guess, based on Monday AM weighing)

Phase: Attack (day 1 of 3)

B: Cottage cheese
L: Oat bran galette
D: Hamburger patties
S: Ricotta/yogurt lemon (extract) "pudding"

I was hungry in the afternoon until I figured out what I could eat. I made a sweet, cinnamon/butter galette (the Dukan "pancake") that was pretty yummy.  I could have eaten more but I didn't need to.

Day 2: Friday, May 20, 2011

Weight: 155 (3 pound LOSS!!!)

Phase: Attack (day 2 of 3)

B: 1 hardboiled egg
L: 2 hamburger patties
D: BBQ Tri-tip
S: Cottage cheese, galette with sugar/fat free maple syrup

SHOCKED yes SHOCKED to see a 3 pound drop. Expecting my weight to increase tomorrow or the next day? Guessing it's water weight but I don't care. Pants fit better. Lol Went too long in the AM without food and had the egg at the last minute. I made the hamburgers last night for dinner and had the leftovers.

Day 3: Saturday, May 21, 2011

Weight: 154.4

Phase: Attack (day 3 of 3)

B: Skipped L only had a Large Diet Coke. oops
L: Galette
D: Scrambled eggs with cottage cheese
S: Cottage cheese

Skipped breakfast because I had to leave the house. That was a bad idea. I did okay as far as cravings but I paid the price the next day.

Day 4: Sunday, May 22, 2011

Weight: 154.8 (probably from skipping meals)

Phase: Cruise (day 1-PV of 73)

B: Chocolate protein shake
L: Low fat ham slices, Fat Free cream cheese, pickles
D: BBQ’d London Broil, green beans
S: Chocolate oat bran.

The oat bran was an experiment. I tried to make a cookie but it was more like oatmeal. LOL I should probably have had a salad but I had a lot of green beans which were cooked with Smart Balance, bad?

Day 5: Monday, May 23, 2011

Weight: 152.4 (WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!)

Phase: Cruise (day 2 -PP- of 73)

B: Chocolate protein shake
L: Cottage cheese and leftover London Broil
D: BBQ Chicken & deviled eggs
S: Galette

I was hungry last night but decided not to eat past 8:00 PM and that decision seemed to pay off.

Day 6: Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Weight: 153.4

Phase: Cruise (day 3 –PV- of 73)

B: Deviled eggs & chocolate mousse
L: Chicken (leftover BBQ), tomato
D: Cottage cheese and jello
S: Galette

The BBQ chicken was delicious. Definitely going to have make more of that  to have around. I did not get enough veggies and not sure how to incorporate more. I should have had a salad but kind of afraid of the dressing. The jello is helping with the sugar needs.

Day 7: Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Weight: 153

Phase: Cruise (day 4 –PP- of 73)

B: Chocolate mousse
L: Cottage cheese & Jello
D: Hamburger patty with a fried egg
S: Galette

Enjoying the pancakes, er, “Galette’s.” I doubt the “fried” egg was okay but I did not add any oil to my pan and since we have no oven broiling was not an option (and a microwaved hamburger patty? I don’t think so…) I was hungry ALL day. That was bad. I need more meat around the house and we ran out of eggs too fast.

B (Breakfast): L (Lunch): D (Dinner): S (Snack/Dessert)
