As you know, I lost 18 pounds in 8 weeks on the Dukan Diet. I have been easily maintaining my new weight through the 4th and final phase of The Dukan Diet. I feel like I have a whole new lease on life!
Side by side comparison of June 18th at 128 pounds till August 11th at 110 pounds.
Upon reading about my success, it encouraged a lot of other women to try The Dukan Diet, which absolutely thrills me. I am so glad to be an inspiration to women and help them on their quest to happiness and health.
One of our winner’s of the Dukan Diet Prize Packs Giveaway wanted to share her story of weight loss with you lovely ladies as another example of how GREAT the Dukan Diet works!
I started following the Dukan Diet on August 13, 2012. As of today, my total loss is 49 lbs!!!!
The diet is so easy to follow and I am never hungry. My standard breakfast of choice is non-fat Greek Yogurt with 1 tablespoon of Goji Berries and 1-2 tablespoons of oat bran. I keep the berries and oat bran at my desk at work, and bring the yogurt, which I purchase in bulk on sale, from home. When I have to eat lunch on the run, I feast on a package of smoked salmon. I frequently have a grilled salmon fillet that I get fresh from the counter at Whole Foods. When I am having a celebration with my family, I bring non-fat Ricotta cheese for my dessert. The only measuring or limits are really the oat bran and Goji Berries. After the first week, I was not even missing bread or sugar.
The biggest trick is to make sure you are never hungry. Keep snacks at work that you can turn to in order to avoid temptation. Eat as much as you need to of the permissible foods to prevent hunger. Always keep a variety of permissible proteins and veggies on hand. Drink the water, and know that there will be days where there are fluctuations in the wrong direction that are likely related to a need for more fiber. Just keep following the diet and drink more water and do not miss the oat bran, and you will get past it.
The products are quite helpful but not at all required. I make a sort of turkey chili with ground turkey, crushed tomato, coriander and cumin, and the Shirataki noodles. I served it to a friend who is not on Dukan, and she love it!
This diet has been so easy to follow and so easy to stay faithful to, and the results speak for themselves. In addition to the weight loss, my overall health has improved, and suggestions of one of my doctors to eliminate fried and fatty or greasy foods was already being addressed.
I highly recommend Dukan to anyone who is serious about losing weight in a healthy manner.
