|So I'm basically drooling all over the keyboard right now. Man this was so good.|
So yesterday I had my first ‘Cheat Meal’. It’s so weird moving away from Dukan terms and onto my ‘New Diet’ terms. Goodbye ‘Celebration Meal’s and hello to ‘Cheat’ ones.
It’s weird and very difficult for me to accept that I’m really no longer on The Dukan Diet.
Dukan is a weight loss diet, I have to be on one to gain muscle.
The diets are SUPER similar, so really, I am still ‘On Dukan’, just a teensy bit modified where I can have a serving of fruit in the AM as well as nuts throughout the day (only almonds, walnuts, and cashews).
Anyways, this is not what the post is about… This Cheat Meal. Mmmmm. :)
Now I am no longer allowed red meats or pork chops. I know, I know on Dukan you aren’t allowed pork chops anyways, but OOOOMG pork chops on the BBQ, so delicious! Honestly how could I say no?
Well I guess now I can, breaks my heart.
Soooo I get 2 steaks a week. So that I can get ‘creatine’ in my system. I’ll be honest, not entirely sure what creatine does. But I need it, so I eat two steaks a week. One of those steaks is my cheat meal and I allow myself a plain baked potato with it.
Now, I hadn’t eaten any potato or potato product in over 11 months. In fact, I actually really used to hate baked potatoes. Until yesterday, now for some reason I ABSOLUTELY LOVE baked potatoes. Weird.
Actually everything tasted so good. The steak was juicy and cooked perfectly (thanks Prawn!) and the baked potato just rounded out the meal, too delicious. Mmm, I want it all over again today, sucks that I have to wait a week. Bah, I’ll be craving it like crazy.
Weird that I crave steak and potatoes and not Doritos and McDonalds now eh?
Oh man and pork chops, would I ever kill for some pork chops right now.
Gotta keep working hard! It will all be so worthit and I am so much healthier now! Keep trucking until the next Cheat Meal!
Have great days, make good decisions!
