Week 4-7 (24 April - 14 May 2012) - Cruise Phase PP+PV

Current weight - 64.5kg
Weight Loss - 2.4 kg

Great number after all the 'cheats' during the weekends! But hey, I can't give up now...I can't cheat now! My true weight is 56.7 (57kg) and I still have...let's see...around 8 more kilos to goooo....wuuuhuuuuuuu!! Ganbatte Adeshi san!  Lost 7.5kg so far :) in 2 months++!

What I would like to share is my frustration and happiness during this 4 weeks...yes I haven't been updating this blog weekly lately because sometimes I feel bad when the scale is showing some numbers that I hate to see...and since I have maintain the 64-65 kg range this few days..I think (and probably confident enuff to blog) this is the stable weight for this week onwards...

I am targeting 63kg next week : ) Wish me luck..I think I need to push more on the exercise's only a once a week jog and a couple of sit ups daily! I know I can do better...

I hope...I wish...and I be 57kg by the time of my bday...24th June 2012...and that will be the BEST bday gift ever I have given myself..! Not everyday a young lady turns 30 :) why not celebrate it with a weight loss that I would have never imagine doing it successfully!!

I love :)

Current weight - 66.9kg
Weight Loss - 0.5 kg

Just 0.5kg?? I can do better than this!! But yes, again I admit that I have my bad and good days throughout the 3rd week...probably I ate too much yogurt...drank too much milk and stuff...but hey, it's Dukan diet, you can always make amend when you slipped your way through!! So I have learnt my lesson (maybe few) and at least I have lost 0.5kg...! If I have stick to the diet more careful, I might have lost 1kg instead! 
Next week will be a challenge..I am not putting any hope on losing any...I am happy if I can maintained this for next week as I have a beach holiday getaway!! Being on holiday...I can imagine how hard it is to maintain a diet me, please do understand!

Week 2 (10 April 16 April) - Cruise Phase PP+PV

Current weight - 67.4kg
Weight Loss - 0.9 kg

So I am moving to 2nd week of Cruise was a lil' bit easier this week as maybe my body has already give up on the fact that it might get carb or just give up! I ate vege + chic with more ease!!!  Once the veggie is in the menu, the diet gets more easier!!   And not to mention, I have 'cheated' a few days in Week 2...let's check the list of crimes that I did :

1- I did not alternate PP & PV..instead i go with PV for 3-4 days (no weight loss!)
2- I get back on track and do PP for 2 days (weight actually reduced to 67.1kg on Saturday!!)
3- After 67.1kg on Saturday, and I was at my hometown I ate Sate for dinner (loads of sugar i assume) and in the morning I had a dinner bun for bfast as I was so other alternative stuff to eat (theres only fried meehun-nono) and I was having period pain and needed to eat before I take my meds

So that's the cheat!! And now I am on day 2 or PP again to get the numbers reduced back as this week target is weighted at 67.4kg and I really really hope that by next Monday I am 66kg!!

Wish me ALL the luck in the world!!

Week 1 (3rd April 9 April) - Cruise Phase PP+PV

Some useful facts copied from some other blog before I start my ranting!

Once you finished the Attack Phase the next goal is to achieve your target weight. This is done while on the Cruise Phase – an alternating rhythm of pure protein days and vegetable & protein days.
A healthy weight loss is about two pounds per week. It can seem slow after a successful attack phase, however this speed is better for long term results – for example your skin has time to shrink not leaving empty flabs behind.

Cruise Phase Rhythms

  • 5PP + 5PV
    The original rhythm alternating every five days. However as five days is a long time it is considered to be tougher to follow and requires higher motivation.
  • 1PP + 1PV
    Dr. Dukan now prefers the one day rhythm, as it often has similar effects to the 5/5 one, while it is easier on the dieter.
  • 2PP + 5PV
    This rhythm is better for people who are older, and/or weaker and don’t have many pounds to lose. The weight loss will be slower using this method though than the other two above.

Vegetable and Protein days

Allowed vegetables include:

  • Artichoke
  • Asparagus
  • Aubergine
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussel sprouts
  • Celery
  • Chicory
  • Courgette
  • Cucumber
  • Fennel
  • French beans
  • Leeks
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Peppers
  • Pumpkin
  • Radish
  • Salad leaves
  • Sorrel
  • Soya beans
  • Spinach
  • Swede
  • Swiss chard
  • Tomatoes
  • Turnip
Allowed in moderation are carrots and beetroot.

Cruise Phase Diet Rules

You can now increase the oat bran intake to 2 tablespoons per day.
Another suggested change is increasing from 20 minutes of exercise to 30 minutes of brisk walking per day.
Just because you are allowed vegetables do not eliminate protein produce from a PV day. After all it is called Protein & Vegetables not Pure Vegetables for a reason.


So, during Cruise Phase..I must say...I have cheated a few time (not with did not follow the PP & PV stricly but instead I have ended up with more PV days then PP days!!  Veggies is really my thing!  so my status as of now is below...not too bad..1kg a week is quite good...but for Week 2 i should increase the exercise and stay with PP and PV days I need to weight at least 67.3 by next Monday! Wish me luck... :)

Current weight - 68.3kg
Weight Loss - 0.9 kg

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


After almost a year + I have abandoned this blog...and my sincere apologies to the blog itself...and also to my dear reader (as if I have any!)...It has been the time of my life that I can't really find any space to actually write or spend some time posting something (yeah's sheer laziness!)

But then..I figure that what I am going to do today onwards will mark the day that I change my life? No no no people, I am not pregnant-not yet, so hold your funny speculation aside.

So what it is all about? Well, after a casual chat with my friend Shikin (no, she is not a doctor nor a dietitian), she decided that she wanted to try this Dukan Diet and according to her, Kate
Middleton swears by it...Kate Middleton? Ok, I am totally in! easy & shallow me..if Kate is doing MLM..I must have been convinced to join MLM as well...mmm...NO!

Ok, is my first day of Dukan Diet, basically it has 4 phases...1st phase is the attack phase and it's a PP diet for 7 days for me (Pure Protein)...sounds easy right cause you can eat chicken meat and stuff...but I can imagine how my body will cry for carbs (those fluffy bread..croissants..stop stop stop!)

So I am now making this blog as my progress for the weight loss...and I want to make this public to put a pressure on myself knowing that there are people watching and following me with this diet :D

So here it goes, first for the target weight and how to achieve, I go to this site You guys can try it out to, but well...the whole diet plan is paid (the diagram below is free though...just check your TRUE WEIGHT via their webby...being a cheapskate i opt for other free resources online - just google for diet plan meal & recipes (you will find a lot of diet diary for Dukan's Diet)

My target is actually 55kg (but in my mind I imagine myself being as slim as Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn...oh Bella oh Bella :P), but according to true weight is 56.7kg (sounds pretty cool to me) AND by 20/07/2012 I will be in that weight??? Sounds so impossible...but I shall give it a try for now ;)

Day 1 (27 March 2012) Attack Phase PP
Current weight - 72kg
Weight Loss - 0 kg

Omelette (very plain..Black pepper & salt & olive oil...yucks)

Chicken baked in Aluminium Foil & 1 bottle of Pepsi Max 0 Cal (drink throughout the day+ green tea)

Baked Chicken again

Just to share the list of 72 foods that is allowed during Attack Phase, salt is ok but in moderation, tips - if you eat a lot of salty food, make sure you drink enough green tea..why?
