New You- Day 1

Three weeks ago I picked up in the library The Dukan Diet, I have already heard about the book when it was first launched " the new Atkins" they screamed. I have done the Atkins and it worked for me helped me to lose the access weight and more before I stabilised at weight half between a weight lose of 2 stone. First I want to lose some of the fat, then if my job interview is successful also hit the gym for toning. I am starting the diet just as I have a vacation as the water requirements make it hard to do it while at work and a week before my night out so no drinking but diet drinks.

I am looking to lose 2 stone, acquired another stone during another stressful year. Already I changed my habits reduced the number of sweets by 3/4 (achieved no weight lose), increased my food budget ( disposable income now lower).According to my health form is £7.90 a week, so it will take 3 weeks to make the cost of a single dental treatment according to the NHS. Eat a lot of yogurt daily,for the sweet cravings. Already my workwear is looser, in time for a replacement.

First stage is Attack Phase last 1-7 days

Foods you may eat are
Fish and Seafood (tinned Tuna
Meat no skin (lean cuts, except Duck and Goose)
Offal
Yogurt (fat free, natural, fromage frais) limited on fruit yogurt
1 Oat bran gelatin (oat bran,egg, quark or natural yogurt)
Loads of water
Tea and coffee with skimmed milk
Small amount of condiments (gherkin/onion slices)

I'm guessing the cost of the first stage if I had to buy full price food items would be £15-20. So far I have spent £15 but that has been for more then a week food includes some spices and food bags.
I'm must admit it took me a while to figure out what was natural flavoured yogurt as everything is labeled low fat, bio pot and probiotic. I guessing low fat is okay, as I have been eating it regularly and achieved inches weight loss.
But Asda has been doing all the yoghurt's types I can eat at half price. Once you get over the first and 2nd stage the cost of the diet will become less.


Breakfast
2 Eggs
1 fat free Muller yogurt
sugar free gum

Coments: Sometimes I have a craving for eggs and beans and it tastes amazing. Egg on its own, not so much. At 11am my stomach was feeling uncomfortable too much yogurt I imagine and not enough bran.


Lunch

Mackerel in a bag
Some low fat yogurt from a pot

Snack
Oat bran gelatin

Dinner
Chicken

Dessert
Fromage frais( rediscovered that I like it and a particular flavour because it taste like apple banana pie.

A unnaturally long post, couldn't do without pictures.
