Cowart's Common Room
Dukan Diet

Having read all your reports on this diet and the rave ones in the Daily Mail I was interested to see this mornings Daily Mail

The report was to say the least, less than complimentary about the diet.
No wonder I am a confused blonde!

Withy Brook's Avatar Not exactly encouraging, is it Blossom? I am going to buy the book and see if I think I can stick it before my daughter's wedding. Otherwise, I shall have to become much more disciplined with my ordinary diet. I know I can be with the motivation.

Faith's Avatar Withy a wedding is HUGE motivation. I lost weight before my own wedding (to BillLaughing) and my daughter's wedding. I'm sure you will have no trouble. The thought of being fat in front of all those people was enough to keep me going!

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I don't think the Daily Mail is the fount of all knowledge. The success of Tiggywinkle, Milla, WW, Presili Mags and myself is more reliable information. And we have enjoyed the experience on the whole. Stick with it.

Blossomcottage's Avatar They certainly are not a fount of all knowledge but I was amused and confused by their U Turn on the subject.

KittyB's Avatar Typical scathing journalism just when it suits. Dukan does work, yes it's tricky to cut out alchohol and chocolate and fat, but show me a diet that doesn't cut out (or radically cut down on) those moreish things we know we shouldn't have! That journalist is being very narrow in her description of what you can eat!

Having said all that - I gave up on Dr Dukan after losing half a stone (to get to my own ideal weight) because of sheer lack of willpower to say no to wine, sweets and crisps! And yet tonight I stepped on the scales for the first time in weeks and have dropped another couple of pounds while not dieting at all (and now I'm only two pounds off Dr Dukan's recommended weight for me - which I always thought was a bit low...).

Milla's Avatar go Kitty!
Seriously, though, I had chums for supper tonight who have just left who were full of enthusiasm for what i've gone through (in that careful way friends have where they don't want to say, "God but you WERE so fat!") all wanted to know how etc. And I think Kitty's hit into n the head. Yes, it's not easy, but why SHOULD it be EASY. You're undoing damage done. You're shifting unnec lard you've honked onto yourself. Why should it be an easy ride. An easy ride is what got you to squeezy tight trousers. Part, for me, of the pleasure of losing 26lbs to date is the "achivement."
We live a privileged life in a privileged part of the world, the luxury of having to diet should be a bit shaming, really, and if we can't say no to the odd portion of rice and bread over a few months then really ....!! Very Happy

Blossomcottage's Avatar I think you have all done a wonderful job and well done, I just thought that The Mail were being typical "newspaper hypocritical"one moment singing its praises and the next when Kate Middleton mother is known to have used it, shouting about the dangers.
My hubby went on the Atkin's diet some years ago and that to was incredible with its results.
Well done to you all for your great results, whether its Dukan, Atkins, Weight Watchers, it matters little if it works don't knock it, I had stuck on my fridge for years this.


and you know that is so true.

Milla's Avatar apologies for appalling typos. Not wildly drunk, honest, just typing into phone. Big mistake!!

Westerwitch's Avatar Loving the typos - don't believe for a minute you are on your phone Milla Laughing

Spot on Blossom. Eating a cake - biscuits whatever yummy thing I could snaffle lasted for a few moments and the feeling of being in squeezy tight trousers as Milla put it HORRIBLE and all day . . . being slim is ALL the time and fabulous . . . and well worth it and just about the easiest diet I have ever been on Very Happy
