I officially began my weight loss journey with the Dukan Diet last Tuesday, and let me tell you it has not been easy!
If you’re asking yourself “What’s the Dukan Diet?” Then check out my full overview in this post. It’s a very strict diet that is divided into 4 phases. I’m on stage 2, the Cruise Phase, where I’m only allowed to eat proteins and vegetables.
Before I started my diet, I decided to give up soda drinks and only drink water. With that alone, I managed to lose 4lbs!
When I started the Dukan Diet, it was hard! I was in Attack Phase, so I was only allowed to eat proteins for three days. That meant no fruits, no vegetables, no grains, no fat! My first three days consisted of eating a LOT of meat, non-fat yogurts, and eggs. I found myself craving bread and junk food for the most part, but I wasn’t going to give up.

After three days, I entered the Cruise Phase, where I was allowed to include vegetables in my meals every other day. I had never been so happy to eat vegetables before in my life! I love that I can now eat them every other day, and I find myself planning out my meals ahead of time so as to not cheat on my diet.
I will be on the Cruise Phase until I reach my goal weight of 125lbs.
The cool thing about the Dukan Diet is that even though you’re limited to what you CAN eat, you can eat as much as you want from those specific foods. So, I had no trouble being “full” at all. I also noticed that the headaches that I usually get every other day were completely gone! So, I know I’m doing my body good already.
