Dukan Diet More on Diet Soda Sis’s Ginger Fish Recipe

Daily Loss:  No Loss    No Gain
Total Loss:     33.5   lbs
Wt. to go:      18.5    lbs

Breakfast:     Bran in custard, coffee

Snack:     Yogurt, Pork and onions (leftovers)

On October 23, 2011, this blog talked about diet soda and the rules (you can drink diet soda) and recommendations (limit diet soda to one a day).  I was a bit floored since I was under the impression that Dr Dukan said was an advocate of diet soda.  Remember I went out to and bought a case of diet soda.  (I rarely drink soda.)

I went back to reread the section where he talks about diet soda, (page 34 in The Dukan Diet USA version).  Basically he states diet sodas are great “allies” when no more than one calorie per glass. He discusses diet sodas in three paragraphs.  He never gives any indications we should limit diet sodas, I suggest you read the October 23 entry of this blog and Dr Dukan’s writings on diet soda so you can decide for yourself.

Looking for different tastes on pure protein day?  My sister raves on about her fish cooked in ginger sauce.  I finally tried it and yes it is very good.  Now I can eat frozen fish.  The dish can be adapted to a fry pan.

Sis’s Ginger Fish

1 fillet of fish like tilapia

1/3 cup Diet gingerale

Freshly finely grated ginger to taste (I use ½ to 1 teaspoon)

Soy sauce small dash

Black pepper to taste

Set oven 350/185.  Grate ginger into gingerale and allow to sit for 15 minutes or so.   Place fish in baking dish that will allow the fish to be almost covering the fish somewhat.  Drain gingerale mixture, discarding the grated ginger.  Add soy sauce to gingerale and pour over fish. Add black pepper to taste.  Bake until fish is cooked, using the 12 to 15 minutes per inch rule.  Yes, it is  Pure Protein recipe.

Diet Dukan Scale Stuck Refuses to Fall Scale Stubborn

Day 77           PP           175.8                                        October 17, 2011

Daily Loss:     0, nada, zip, zilch, nil       No weight gain, No weight loss
Total Loss:    30.5 lbs.
Wt. to go:      19.3 lbs.

Breakfast:     Coffee, vanilla crepe pancakes  (cinnamon)

Snack:       2  Bacon Jennie-o crisp,

Late Lunch:    Turkey breast meat loaf, yogurt (flavored SF Irish Cream flavoring)

Supper:    More Turkey breast meat loaf,  yogurt

Snack:     Slo mo tea

I could always do a couple of PP days.  But I think I will just hang in there and stay with the program.  If I do not see results I will do something.  I made the worst tasting cookies tonight but at least they are chocolate.   (Potential crumbs for a crust or to sprinkle on yogurt.)  I made some sunshine souffle so I could make some french toast  (PP meal) .

Tomorrow I am bringing a friend to the doctor, an old boy friend.   Time to boil eggs  (Sandi’s,  flamidwyfe blog,  cure for away for the day and save your  dukan diet ) , and crisp up Jennie-o bacon.

I was reading recipes last night and saw one using cubed pieces of silken soy with a caramel sauce that has fresh ginger grated in it. Strain the caramel sauce before serving.  Think it would work?  Please soy people, what do you think???

I think that after reading and reading the diet, the more protein the better.  It is amazing how you must always stick with the book.  Read and reread.  The Dukan facebook page is so amazing, always saying the answer is clear it is in the book.

Moonday  of  My Dukan Diet Journal wrote to me about the high cost of the diet and really got me thinking about my reasons for starting and sticking to the diet.  Thank you,  Moonday.

Day 2 Attack PP to Restart Dukan Diet after Illness

Day 73         PP           175.8          October 13, 2011

Daily Loss:     2.2   lbs      Really 14 days worth not daily.
Total Loss:   30.5   lbs
Wt. to go:     19.3   lbs

I hope this is a restart. I still am very tired and sleep so much.  Over sleeping is the name of the game.  I am behind in everything.  I go to bed early and wake up late.  I do want to get some exercise in today.  Yes, it will be a little at a time.  I have been reading the book again and decided I needed two attack days to jump-start the weight loss.

Breakfast:   Crepe Recipe ( in frying pan making small  chocolate pancakes so tasty.)

Lunch:      Sliced pork tenderloin with onions.

Snack:     Two pieces of  Jennie-O bacon cooked to a crisp in the microwave.  Two glasses of milk with Sweetleaf chocolate.

(Love the sweet and salty.)

Supper:     More pork slices with onions, thyme,  grate of ginger, apple cider vinegar and NF sweetener.  So good.

Snack:       If needed, pina colada shake or yogurt.

My decision is not to fret too much about the Pure Protein days of consolidation and stabilization is very soothing.  I had some of my favorites today.  Only thing missing is Vicki’s Chocolate Eggs with NS Chocolate syrup and French toast made with Sunshine Souffle.  Even if I must have more PP days, I am not giving up chocolate.

Cruise Stall to End, How to will away a stall, Tofu Fries Recipe

Day 71, 72         PV      PP         178      October 11 &12, 2011

Daily Loss:  No gain No loss
Total Loss:  28.3 lbs
Wt. to go:    21.4 lbs

Breakfast:  1/2 crepe recipe

Snack:      Cup of Greek yogurt  Morning and again in afternoon

When you think a stall is due to be over,  what can you do?  Since this stall is due to an illness and a nasty medication  I could only wait.  My wait is over and I will do two PP days to see if I can jump-start this weight swing to weight loss.  Reading Dr Dukan UK weekly chats at   ddr.myfreeforum.org

I also have been reading the book from the beginning again.   Looking at the website, and Face Book  Dukan Us.

I have found a bunch of new recipes. and have been working on some.    I have heard about this recipe but could never find it.  It looks good because it is all protein.

Tofu Fries

Ingredients:

1 package of firm tofu

1 egg

Seasonings of your choice (garlic, cayenne, paprika, chipotle, pepper)

Preparation

1. Drain firm tofu  and slice French fry style.

2. Cover with paper towels and put a pan on the tofu for 30 to 45 minutes to squeeze out the water in the tofu.

3.  Wisk the egg and coat the tofu with the egg mixture.

4. Season with pepper, garlic, cayenne, or whatever you like (seeing how tofu takes on the flavors you add)

5. Lightly coat a cookie sheet and wipe it. Place tofu in the pan and bake at 375 for 15 minutes (or until toasted) then take out and flip over and bake for 10 minutes (or until golden brown) .

I want to give a shout out to Vicki C at   http://dukanblogging.blogspot.com .   Thank you for all your support.  I always read you when I think I can not stand another piece of chicken.  You are amazing in that you are almost  half way through this rebound period called consolidation.  You are doing well and you should give yourself a pat on the back.

And to Sandi at  http://flamidwyfe.wordpress.com/  who is travelling to all sorts of countries and does not have the benefit of a USA grocer with all the special things we have here.  I am always amazed in the ways you manage to stay on Dukan diet.  Yes, the boiled egg trick.  So simple and so wise.
Thank you Sandi and Vicki.

 

 

 

Duukan Diet Blues Continue, Pure Protein Faves

Day 57   PP                   176.8                                               Thursday                  September 29, 2011

Daily Loss:   Gain 1.8 lbs.     Thanks Prednisone
Total Loss:  29.5 lbs
Wt. to go:    22.5 lbs

Sorry I have been away trying to catch by breath.  The scale is yo-yo tripping and will for the next two weeks.  I read the chapter about menopause since my med is a  hormone and figured that would help me.  I am staying on the program and not changing it.  It will work out in time.

I have been trying to figure out what are my favorites for PP days.  I like to have in the frig jello made with NF Greek yogurt.   I tried cooking microwave turkey bacon till crisp and dry and they were a good snack to carry along for a shopping trip or extra with meal.

My favorite meat is pork tenderloin (unflavored) that I get at a good price at Costco.   I cut it up and freeze it.  So easy and tasty.   (I brown it then add a shallot or some onion, simmer in ginger ale or cherry flavoring in water.  I make a double batch because it is so good cold to snack on the next day. )

My all time favorite pp supper is French toast  (see September 3,2011)  made with Sunshine souffle (see August 13th) with Canadian bacon and NS caramel syrup.   One souffle makes enough for 4 meals of french toast. Oat bran cookies are wonderful but I have gotten in the habit of having them in the morning.

I am defrosting chicken tenders to make Tandoori Chicken.  The tenders will marinate quickly and Sunbrand has a powder that you add to yogurt, lemon juice (and more yogurt to skip the oil).   Then cook under the broil.  Sounds good with a side of microwaved bacon.  I like Sun Brand. No coloring in this either.  Serve with fresh lemon.  Edited to give results.  Too too spicy.  I will go back to my recipe of marinating in lemon, mustard, and yogurt.

Since we must eat our two tablespoons of oat bran a day and everyone loves Galettes, here is a new one.   I copied this from Vicki C’s website.  I think we could make them with 1 tablspoon of  Oat bran and have them with meals.  Prefect pure protein heaven.  http://dukanblogging.blogspot.com/2011/08/day-77-cruise-chocolate-hazelnut.html   The added notes are from Vicki.

Here’s the recipe:1 egg white (I used Egg Beaters)
2 Tbsp oat bran
2 Tbsp fat-free, low-carb vanilla yogurt
2 tsp sweetener (I used Splenda)
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Torani sugar-free hazelnut syrup (to taste)
1) In a small bowl, beat egg. Add remaining ingredients, then mix.
2) Pour mixture into a heated nonstick pan (medium heat), and cook for 5 minutes. Flip the galette and cook for another 5 minutes.

Perhaps I had the heat on too high, but my galette actually cooked in 5 minutes total (i.e., 2.5 minutes — rather than 5 minutes — per side). Overall, I thought it tasted great — the galette was light, fluffy, and full of hazelnut goodness. Next time I might add a little more cocoa powder, but still thought it was awesome.

I’ve heard that the galettes freeze well, so if I’m not too lazy, I might make some in bulk, freeze them, and enjoy the fruits of my labor for days to come… 🙂

Oh I can not forget Vicki’s choclate eggs with NS chocolate syrup.  Pure Protein Delight.  See September 19th.

Please share and tell me about your Pure protein Favorites.  Some mornings I groan at opening up that frig, every other day to be exact.

Edited spelling, date, and added current weight.
