Good morning! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!
It’s Day 3 of my Attack Phase on the Dukan Diet & I am feeling great! I’ve lost some weight, but I know it’s just water weight right now. My body feels better, though. I’m not bloated at all and I just feel good.
A nice thing about this diet is that I don’t feel like I am starving myself. These pure proteins really fill you up and there are no calorie restrictions. I’m excited to be able to start eating veggies again soon though because I love them soo much! I know that not incorporating main food groups into your diet is frowned upon, but this is very temporary and I will be adding them back into my diet soon.
I do have to say that Day 2 was tough for me. I woke up and started making breakfast: 3 egg whites, 1 yolk, and 2 slices of lean turkey bacon. I wasn’t even that hungry, but I knew I needed to eat. While I was cooking, the thought of putting more protein into my body was making me sick. I had to lay down for a few minutes. It blew my mind how much I was sick of protein already and it was only day 2!! But that feeling passed and I was fine the rest of the day!
For lunch I tried to be a little more creative. There are 72 pure proteins that you are allowed to eat during this phase, but I feel like it’s very hard to get creative.
I tried making somewhat of a smoothie bowl!
I blended together 1 cup of Greek yogurt, about a 1/2 cup of skim milk, 1 1/2 tablespoons of oat bran, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, a decent amount of splenda (I didn’t measure, just added until the sweetness was right), and icecubes!
Now this was definitely NOT the best smoothie I’ve ever had, but it was better than eating more chicken or eggs!
I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things for my family. That was hard! All I wanted to do was pick up a bag or tortilla chips and salsa and dig in! The bananas were also looking wonderful! Who am I kidding, everything looked good to me!
But I know that I cannot break this diet. This is something that I really want and I would be so disappointed in myself if I lost discipline.
When I got home, my dad was back and he had a surprise for me!
He knows that I’m on this diet, so he went fishing and caught some yummy trout that I can cook up! I love fish a lot, so I was extremely happy. I actually had a piece this morning for breakfast! It was delicious! Thanks Dad 🙂
I’m not sure what I’m going to do today. The past few days have been super boring. The weather has been horrible – gloomy and rain. 😦 I can’t wait until it is nice out so I can be outside and start working again!!!
My brother will be living back at home for the next couple of days. He’s having surgery today. Nothing life-threatening, but send your prayers his way!!
Hope everyone has a great day! It’s almost the weekend 🙂
