I am thankful that today is the last day for the Attack Phase of the Dukan Diet. I’ve had enough hamburger and I am looking forward to having some veggies tomorrow! A turkey is going in the oven tonight and there is a lot of fish and chicken in the freezer. These meats I can handle and I love, so that is good. Tomorrow you will learn all about the Cruise Phase.
Pounds Lost: 1.6 lbs for a total of 3.8 lbs. Tomorrow morning is my last weigh in for the Attack Phase. I’m sure I will be over the 4 lb mark. I wonder what my weight will be?
How I felt today: Today was good because I didn’t go anywhere. I was home, which makes the Attack Phase easier to regulate.
Although I did realize that I need to eat throughout the day so that I don’t get hungry. That is when temptation to eat something “bad” for me comes into play. I did feel hungry once today, but that is because I hadn’t eaten enough to keep me full or I should say enough times throughout the day. Eating a lot of small meals and drinking lots of water through the day keeps me full, but today I just didn’t do that. I will make sure I am eating more and drinking more water too. I think because I didn’t do this it has kind of thrown my day off for eating wise and feeling hungry. I must eat more! With that said, today was a much better day than yesterday. Sorry, no crazy stories for you today.
Breakfast: I slept in… so there wasn’t breakfast.
Snack: Did I mention I slept in!
Lunch: Poached egg, chicken strips, and pickles. (We are only allowed to have a certain amount and after that point they are considered a veggie.) I made the chicken strips the night before using the oat bran and herbs as a coating. So this morning I didn’t get to have a galette. Perhaps if we kept a better eye on the chicken strips we would have gotten them out of the oven earlier so they weren’t so dry and crunchy! Next time less cooking time.
Afternoon Snack: I don’t think I really had one – hence the hunger by supper time.
Supper: Seafood chowder
Evening Snack 1: Lemon Meringue fat free yogurt (I still haven’t heard from any of you if there is another fat free flavoured yogurt out there for me!)
Evening Snack 2: Imitation crab
Tomorrow I start the Cruise Phase, as I already mentioned. This I am excited about. I found out that I am working again tomorrow, so I am very glad that I can have veggies in my lunch! I would like to crunch on a veggie right now, but I will wait.
In the evening I will post the final weigh in and about the Cruise phase. I will tell you that in this phase I alternate protein and protein-veggie days. I am limited to certain veggies, which is ok because I like pretty much all of them. To find out what veggies I can and can’t have and more about this phase be sure to look for my update!
