Daily Loss:      1.5   lbs
Total Loss:    35
Wt. to go:      17

I broke a barrier but the ups and downs of checking the scale every day is so tedious.  It will go up because of two things.  Firstly, that’s what happens to me.   I retain water or what ever and there is nothing I can do about.    And finally, I went off the diet and had a normal meal.  I will not talk about the contents of the meal but it satisfied one thing.  I miss complexity in my diet and variety.

But today is a new day and the diet is still on.  I will do 2 pp days since I am coming from 2 pv days.

Breakfast:     One tablespoon crepe recipe, coffee

Lunch:     One tablespoon Oats in Custard

supper:      Pork and onions

Snack:     Yogurt

According to Dr. Dukan, 1,400 calories a day is burned covering our metabolic requirements and  over half is used to keep our core at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

We are starting winter and the cold air is here.  According to Dr Dukan,  if we lower the temperature to 72 degrees Fahrenheit  you will burn an extra 100 calories.  (Same of running for 20 minutes.)

Suck on 5 to 6 ice cubes a day and burn 60 calories.  Eating cold food is easy if we make icy NF milk shakes flavored with NS flavoring.  If you can stand a cold shower for 2 minutes you would be a cold fool.

Drink your water icy cold.  Yes, I can do this.  I can put ice cubes in my second cup of coffee.  If you are cold outside, walk faster. I like to wear a scarf around my neck and it helps me tolerate the cold.  So long as the back of my neck is warm I am happy.  In The Dukan Diet book on page 120, Dr D has an outline a 420 calorie burning plan utilizing the cold.

I do recall living though a cold winter alone with only a wood stove and during cold snaps (18 degrees fahrenheit).  I had a difficult time eating enough food to maintain my weight.  When I moved to an apartment house I had to change my eating habits drastically despite being in a three floor walk up.
