How Dukan Has Helped Me w/ My New Bodybuilding Diet

This is very exciting, but apparently I have the dieting part of bodybuilding down and Dukan is to thank!

Since I have been following such a strict and similar diet for over 11 months, I have a serious advantage to all the other girls competing, even the pro ones!

After researching with Prawn as well as speaking to a woman in the business, my diet is very strict and very professional.

The kicker is that I enjoy my new diet, that I don’t find it all that strict and actually enjoy it!

Everyone I talk to in the bodybuilding world is pretty impressed with the diet, they say they can’t live without their weekly cheat meal (which I have cut out completely) as well as their carbs. That they go on benders and cheat and that I eat very ‘clean’. That the thing they struggle with the most is the dieting part.

Which is the complete opposite of me. I struggle with the working out aspect of bodybuilding, not the diet.

The diet is easy.

I read interviews online of some of the big guns in the bodybuilding world. They all say they allow themselves to succumb to their cravings, that they cheat every once in a while and give in to temptation.

I have to say, I’m proud of myself. That I can follow a strict, low-carb (or rather, no carb) diet and do it successfully while not cheating at all! All these women I look up to can’t even do that. I feel blessed with my willpower.

Now if only I could get the gym-ming down. Well, that will come with time. As long as I keep making myself go, keep working harder and harder and getting more comfortable, it’ll come.

The dieting is the ‘hard part’ apparently. And I am dieting at PRO LEVEL!

Thank you so much Dukan : ) You have given me the tools to succeed in this new chapter of my life. I’m excited (as always) for what the future will bring!



  1. Have you looked at Tosca Reno's books/articles on clean eating? I check out "Oxygen" mag pretty regularly, and she's the widow of the editor (founder?), he just passed away a few weeks ago. I've read that some women dump on the mag's workouts, but the food portion seems good, and they have pros modelling and stuff all the time. I also like "Fitness RX for Women". BTW, maybe Prawn just wants to pump iron with you! You might want to show him something like the P90X diet which shreds fat & builds muscle. It's very close to Dukan, lots of protein in the first 30 days. You can get a free download of the booklet on the web.

  2. I was going to say something similar to Veerukka. But she already said it :-)

    1. Great minds think alike!

    2. lol, you guys are too funny.

      Prawn wants to start pumping iron with me, I'm very excited for him to join the gym.

      I have heard a lot about P90X... you are right I should check it out! Will look into it when I get home, thanks.

  3. Hi Dukan Dietress! Love your blog, I recently did Dukan for a while and now am moving into 'bodybuilding' as well, not to compete, just for healthy lifestyle and to get a mean physique!

    At first it was uncomfortable going to the gym, you just feel out of place...One thing that helped me was picking out some sweet gym clothes! I treated myself to some really nice workout gear, and it kind of motivates you in a weird way. At least I felt better about going to the gym. It's a girl thing.

    P90X is great, hard, but good. The abs workout is amazing, it will give you nice girly abs instead of manly six pack!

    Love your blog! Keep up the good work in the gym/diet, we are rooting for you!

  4. I love Oxygen mag and Tosca's books are great (eat clean). Once you get the body building sorted you are going to be a big threat to those girls. Keep up the great work! x

  5. The only reason I haven't been pushing P90X for you is that evidently it's not really good enough for bodybuilding ladies, they've complained the legs portion is weak. I think it's a great idea for someone who would do better at home because going to the gym is a problem (kids, etc), and is close to/at their goal weight, as you really need to have a few carbs to get the full benefits.
