Differences in Experience on Dukan

Talking to my grandmaman on this trip (she has lost 70 lbs and is approaching her one year anniversary with the Dukan Diet. She is currently on the consolidation phase)

She informed me that her experience with Dukan was completely different than mine. Let me explain:

She felt during the cruise phase that it went by so easily, smoothly. That she didn't mind making dinner for my grandpapa that wasn't diet food. She didn't mind going out to restaurants and eating salad. It went by really quickly for her and now, looking back, realises how much time has gone by and how LONG this diet has been. She is really looking forward for when she will get two celebration meals a week and in her mind, that is when the diet will be over for her.

I was completely blown away because I had almost the complete opposite experience.

During the cruise phase I HATED eating at restaurants with my friends and felt completely deprived. I could never have done what she did, making non-Dukan meals for someone. I would have cheated, 100% I am not that strong-willed. Prawn had to go on the diet with me so I would have that extra support.

But looking back, I realise how LITTLE time has gone by. Yesterday was my 9 month anniversary on Dukan and when I think back to cruise... it went by so fast! I could be on this current phase for ever and am excited for phase 4 (August 10th 2013) but I know this diet will just wiz by and August will be here before I know it.

Weird, maybe it's an age difference thing.



  1. I've just skimmed through your blog and read a few posts - lady, you are a weightloss rockstar, well done!!! I myself have recently embarked on this journey, I've lost 17 kg and still have 30kg to go, but I find my inspiration in people like you and also writing my own blog about it!

  2. Your grandmaman sounds like an awesome woman! What a strong will she has!

    It's been easy for me living out of the States with no one to cook for. On the few occasions that I have (like Christmas dinner for 13 coworkers and a couple that I met through the hospital) I cooked a completely Dukan friendly meal. How great that Prawn signed on to it with you :) You guys look great!

    1. Oh no, seriously she is amazing. She cooks him brownies with chocolate fudge and ice cream and just sits there eating her oat bran gallette with not a care in the world. I could never, EVER do that.

    2. Wow!! I could never, ever do that either! Kudos to grandmaman!!!

  3. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
