I started The Dukan Diet on June 19th. Just 8 weeks later, I’ve lost 18 pounds!
I did a photo shoot on June 18th, wearing a pair of size 28 Yummie Tummie Slimming Jeans. They were a little bit snug and looking back now I think I must have been poured into them… I put them on today and was so amazed at how BIG they are on me now! I decided they would be perfect to show you some before and after pictures!!
Here is a side by side comparison of June 18th at 128 pounds and today, August 11th at 110 pounds.
You can clearly see I lost at least 10 pounds just on my hips, thighs and butt. The biggest loss in inches, was definitely my butt…
When I started, my measurements were:
- Waist: 31 inches
- Hips: 37 inches
- Butt: 42 inches
- Thighs: 24 inches (around each thigh)
And now, my measurements are:
- Waist: 24 inches
- Hips: 32 inches
- Butt: 35 inches
- Thighs: 18 inches (around each thigh)
I can contribute this success to Zaggora Hot Pants as well, which I wore for approximately 3 weeks out of the 8 weeks I was on the diet.

As we all know, as you burn calories, you lose weight.
It says to wear them for 2 weeks to lose up to 2 pant sizes. I was super excited to find that I lost a whole pants after just THREE DAYS of wearing them. I’ve worn/tried/reviewed a lot of clothing items that promised to burn calories and make you lose inches, but this is the FIRST TIME I have ever seen anything like this actually work. I’m really impressed. It’s seriously better than liposuction! I can see a difference in the appearance and texture of my skin as well. No wonders why celeb Denise Richards wears them.
I never thought losing weight would be so easy as it has been on the Dukan Diet. I would HIGHLY recommend this diet to anyone who has some will power. If you can commit to sticking with this diet, no matter what, you WILL see amazing results. If looking good and feeling good about yourself is more important to you than 5 minutes of pleasure for you tongue, then you can totally do this diet successfully!
I don’t think I would recommend this diet to someone who gives into temptation easily, has an extremely busy lifestyle and is prone to giving in to temptation. If that describes you, then you might be better off trying Sensa. If you love food and can’t imagine giving up anything that you love to eat and looking good isn’t more important to you than FOOD, then the Dukan Diet would be a little difficult for you. I mean, you could do it, but you would seriously need some will power!
I would also recommend doing a 3 or 5 day juice fast like Ritual Cleanse. This can help reset your bad eating habits and get your system ready for a change. If you get good results you may want to consider an even longer juice fast.
The diet really isn’t that hard to stick to and some of the food is really yummy! A couple days ago I made a ginger chicken stir fry that was soooo delicious!
Instead of stir-frying in oil, I used low-sodium organic chicken broth to cook the chicken in, then I added the spices, then the peppers and mushrooms. After everything was cooked, I added 1/8 tsp of cornstarch to thicken the broth and turn it into a sauce. It was soooo yummy. I used fresh shredded ginger and organic ginger powder as well. Even my husband liked this one!

If I can do it, so can you!!!!!!!
