Dukan Diet

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

Constantly searching for a method I will stick with. I recently discovered the Dukan Diet and have read the book. I have 3 other people in my life that are giving it a try too, so I think that will help.

If you haven't heard of it before, it's basically a low fat, high protein plan, but what's most appealing to me is that it's not a rest of your life diet in the fact that you can never eat carbs again. There are 4 phases, with the first being the most restrictive. I am currently in the first phase, called The Attack Phase. Basically lean meats and low fat dairy is permitted and one must drink lots of water and consume 1 1/2 tbsp of oat bran every day. I am supposed to be on this phase according to Dukan's website for 7 days. He has a place to put in your personal information and it gives you a more personalized plan with a proposed date that you will meet your goal or "true weight" as he calls it.

Here's hoping for the best and much success.

    Thank you everyone for the comments.

    Bill, congratulations on your weight loss! 70 pounds is amazing. I have tried Spark and everything else, and more then once, sadly. I've been a member since 2009, but nothing seems to stick. Certainly the fault with that lies with me and not each of the diets I've tried. I'm just trying to find the best one that works for me.

    Thank you Stampingaddict and Virgo for the welcome. I had just come back to SP to put what I was eating into the food log and decided to search Dukan on the site and found the sparkpage.

    Day three today I am down 4 pounds. I know that's mostly or all water weight, but it's nice to see a downward turn on the scale. I have, counting today, 5 more days on the attack phase.

    Thanks again everyone.

    I've been doing Dukan for 1 1/2 months and have lost 17 pounds! It's the only thing that's been working for me. I'm still using SP to track my exercise and food - not to mention fun. I found it to be a good combination. Good luck & keep us posted!

    I have been doing the Dukan for just over 7 weeks and have lost over 20 lbs.
    I am still using the tracker on SP, but have adjusted the cals, fat, carbs and protein to follow the Dukan.

    I now have 5 people who have joined me and all are finding it easier than any other.

    Have you tried the diet at SP? You don't have to eat their recipes but if you follow their guidelines, you'll lose weight (unless you have some other medical condition, in which you should talk to your doc before starting any diet). SP is easy to follow and quite livable. I lost 70 pounds using it.
