Dukan Diet Day 35 Happy Labor Day

Day 35                         PV day              September  5, 2011

Daily Loss:  1 lb
Total Loss:  22.4 lbs
Wt. to go:  29.6 lbs

I did not eat as much protein as I should have eaten yesterday.   I could not stand the thought of chicken after picking off some to make a salad.  Had a glass of ff skim milk and then off to do my laundry.    It took forever so I grabbed some yogurt (added coconut and pineapple sf flavoring) and frozen meatballs  instead of making my big dinner.  Jello made with yogurt for late snack.

Be careful not eating when you should and then feeling “just starved”.  Your body may start to put itself into a protective mode.

It goes like this.  

The little General, sitting on your shoulder, calls the signal and rounds up the troops and shouts:  

“Save this woman from starvation”.  “Cells!  Hang on to that ounce.  Do not let that fat get away.  We will

need that.!”  “Hey muscles!  Slow that woman down.  Save that energy.”  “Save that woman.”

If you know anything about little Generals, they get more stubborn over time.  They have a job to do

and little Generals “do not let the facts get in the way.  “

 I just love science, don’t you?

I have got to catch up on making my brocoli salad and do something with those other fresh veggies.

Breakfast 2 oat bran cookies and ff milk, coffee

Snack puree of cauliflower.

Lunch was wonderful french toast with turkey bacon, with cinnamon and splenda.  So good

Will have pork tenderloin (with shallots, touch of cherry dash of Bragg’s) and steak  (marinated in 1/2 teaspoon Pickapepper and 1 Tablespoon of  balsamic) for supper.

I am trying to have less yogurt.   I read ahead about the new PP day in the next phase of this diet.

Here is an updated Cookie recipe.


Double this recipe to make six days of Oat bran requirement


6 Tablespoons oat bran

2 Tablespoons sweetener  I use  3 to 5 packets of splenda  (edited to make sweeter) ( or to taste)

1 teaspoon baking powder  (I do not double.)

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or 2  rounded teaspoons of dark cocoa

2 teaspoon Greek yogurt

1 egg white

A bit of vanilla, or grated lemon or lime, or instant coffee,or nutmeg or whatever


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a spoon. It should not be too runny,  wait five minutes and it will thicken if needed.

Spoon out 6 cookies (one cookie for each tablespoon of bran) onto a baking tray lined with foil.

Bake for

12-15 minutes.                        IDEAS:   Make other flavors.  Add grated lemon and lime.  Cinnamon and Nutmeg                                                                                                  Vanilla bean
