Thinking Ahead on Dukan Diet

Day 36    PP   Tues 183.6

Daily Loss:  0
Total Loss: 22.4
Wt. to go: 29.6

No weight loss no worry.  Time to examine what I did yesterday and what I consumed.  I will then look ahead with confidence.

Water not enough water.

I am trying to drink 2 quarts of water a day.  I know that Dr Dukan  says any liquid counts but based on personal experience water does count.  During a successful diet that Sis and I were on together  (1991),  we both found that we lost weight when we were consistent with water intake.  The easiest and cheapest thing to do is to drink water.

Make that water cold to use up more calories.  Another cheap and easy thing to do.   Eating all this protein is probably hard on the kidneys so let us be good and drink plenty of water so the kidneys can work properly.  Two quarts of water is plenty.

This diet has side effects.

Unfortunately, constipation is a problem and not a pleasant one.  That problem is one that I truly hate and there is no easy answer.  Dr Dukan said in his book or on Dukan US  Facebook page, to replace one tablespoon of oat bran with wheat bran to see if that well help.  I feel less lethargic on oat bran and the change did not help.

Thinking ahead on Dukan diet is important on days when there is no weight loss.  I am looking forward to my vacation with my sister at Christmas time in Florida.
