Yesterday I drank 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar in hopes it would reduce my water retention. That may be the reason I lost weight today. I was not expecting a weight loss since I had that lapse this week. Directly after my lapse I had such terrible stomach pains I could hardly walk which I think is due to some garlic in the food. (I cannot eat garlic.) I think the whole thing boils down to the fact I am one lucky Irish woman.
I have been reading the chat sessions on the UK and French Dukan websites. You have to be aware of the differences in the plans but it is interesting anyway. These web chats can be found by going to the website home page. Scroll down until you see the box that looks like a running chat. Below that it says “Click here to zoom”. When you click, a pop up box with the last chat session appears. The US Dukan website does not have this feature yet. Google can translate the page for you if needed. Keep in mind all these folks on chat are being coached.
Water: too little not good, too much not good.
I see that they recommend reducing water intake for some problems which does not make sense to me. A very high protein diet needs lots of fluids for the kidneys to operate properly. It was my understanding that kidney damage could occur if water intake was restricted over a period of time with a high protein intake. We need that high water intake to process the amounts of protein we consume. On the other hand I have seen psychiatric patients who have ingested such enormous amounts of water until they have water intoxication and that is dangerous and can be a medical emergency and even fatal. I would not reduce my water intake unless my personal physician recommended it. This is my personal opinion it is not advice. The intent here is to show you what the chat sometimes says, not to advise you on what to do or not do. I follow the Dukan Diet Book on the subject and spread my water consumption thru out the day and drink his recommended amount. Again the members of chat are being coached by the Dr Dukan and his staff.
