Let’s keep on with the good habits of eating!
If you read the book- good for you! it means you kind of understand how this will and should work. I f not… you just have to listen to others and read.
First step ( there are 4 important steps in the Dukan Diet) :
The Attack phase. Very simple and easy. You can keep it for 2, 5, 7 or 10 days, depends how much weight you want to loose on the long term. I wanted to loose about 10 kilos so I kept it for 7 days. If you don’t want to loose more than 5 kg, then keep it for 2-3 days.
You can eat whenever and as much as you want, no limits.
You are allowed only pure proteins :
Eggs– boiled, mixed, eggwhites, poached eggs ..raw.. whatever form you want-except fried in oil! that’s a no no!
Meat : poultry, beef, fish, veal, some organs.
Boil it, grill it, ‘oven’ it …but never fry it. No skin on chicken allowed-that’s fat.
only few condiments allowed- nothing green or fresh. Smoked salmon is allowed and any kind of fish, also in cans- but only in natural juice and please take care at sugars- there should be zero sugar added.
Milk and Yogurt : only non fat milk and non fat yogurt. Means 0,1% fat is also ok, but again, take care of the added sugars- should be zero if possible. No fruit yogurt-they all have sugars.
Coffee,Tea and Coca Cola Zero. No sugar!!!
And lots of water- about 1,5 liters / day.
Whatever you think “am i allowed to eat….” NO!
IF IT’S NOT ON THE LIST- THEN IT’S NOT ALLOWED.
* everyday without interruption : one table spoon of oat bran (not flour) -can be with yogurt..or mixed with eggs or whatever. just have it.
I didn’t make a lot of food photos in this Attack phase- I was kind of busy reading and cooking ..and trying to not make mistakes.
I kept it for 7 days and I lost 5 kilos. :)
I felt a little bit of headache and a bit weak on the 3rd and 4th day but I recovered immediately with fish. Since then, I never had days like that- always full of energy and no health problems.
You’re gonna eat a lot of this in this phase :)
Bon appetite! and loose weight!
