Why the Dukan Diet Works for Me When No Other Diet Does

Had a long and nice talk with my dad yesterday. Number one, he definitely doesn't read my blog. You suck dad :P

(He doesn't suck, my dad rocks, but I digress)

He is the only person in the entire world who knows me better than I do... well maybe my mom. But let's focus here.

Why does the Dukan Diet work for me while no other diet will? How come I am having trouble motivating myself to workout, when I have proven that I can indeed motivate myself to do something difficult and succeed?

Well thanks to my dad, I can tell you all, and maybe motivate you to either start the diet or teach you a little something you might not have known about yourself.

I motivate myself using self deprivation, also, I am lazy.

That's it, that's exactly it.

How come I can be disciplined and save money? Because I don't have to do any actual work, I don't have to take action, I just have to deprive myself from buying things.

How come I can't do a calorie counting diet or Weight Watchers points? That's actual work and I am lazy, but a diet like Dukan works for me because I don't have to keep track of anything or do any actual work, there is a list of foods I can eat and I don't eat any of the foods not on that list. So easy and simple. I don't have to put in any extra effort, I just deprive myself of foods I'm not allowed and tah-dah.

I have not cheated while on this almost 10 month journey, not because of any actual effort I did. I didn't have to track anything, I didn't have to get up and go to the gym. I dropped the weight by deprivation because that is how I motivate myself to succeed in anything.

I'm also lazy and love to eat and snack, which I did the entire diet. I have not felt hungry this entire dieting process. Am I doomed to fail in phase 4 when I am not surrounded by such strict rules? I couldn't tell you but it scares me to death about gaining the weight back.

Such a hard thing to learn about myself. I feel pretty hopeless about the whole working out thing. My dad says I should try and motivate myself by telling myself that if I don't work out I will not allow myself to touch my iPhone or have internet for a day-week-whatever.

It doesn't work that way though, I know I will just cheat and do it anyways.

But I have to try something! I need to stay motivated with the working out.

So instead of being the kind of person who finds inspiration and motivation in working hard and going for things, I am the kind of person who can find success in having things taken away from me.




  1. I am completely like that too. I'm totally lazy and find Dukan works for me for the same reason's it works for you. I tried all the other diets (WW, counting calories etc...) but gave them all up because it got too hard.

    I don't have many ideas on how to motivate yourself to work out. What I have done is bought dumbbells and a few things for home and make myself do it while I watch my favourite tv show or something... but that still doesn't last that long. I do love it when my muscles look gorgeous but then again I still come up with excuses not to exercise and work out.

    PLEASE let me know if you do find the answer. I need help too!!!

  2. Hahaha, I am very similar! I am not lazy in every aspect of my life, but definitely in some aspects. And food is one of them.

  3. This is EXACTLY why it works for me!

  4. It is a great diet.
    Thank you, Dr Dukan.

    1. lol, did the same thing for MOOOONTHS while on Dukan. You just have to keep trying and figure out what gets you to the gym, find your own motivation!

    20,000 more males in this city than girls, this determine is a bit deceptive.
    There is a high number of homosexual males, along with immigrant workers, who skew the numbers.
    All of the places on the list seem to be huge towns that most likely have comparable forms of populations.

  35. I agree with Genette! I have a HUGE crock pot that cooks just like a crock pot on steroids, lol.
    I usually cut the cooking time of any recipe, especially kinds that
    don't fill up my entire crock pot (most recipes never), by AT LEAST a 3rd...sometimes half. After i very first recieved my crock pot as being a gift I had been working full time and I can't tell you how numerous instances I
    came home to over cooked foods or mushy veggies.

    I have learned to either double the recipe so the crock pot is complete, cut the cooking time, or turn the crock pot down (mine could
    nonetheless roast a turkey around the "keep warm" function,
    lol) to acheive the ideal meal.
