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 right...it'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! LOL..how easy & shallow me..if Kate is doing MLM..I must have been convinced to join MLM as well...mmm...NO!
Ok, so...today 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 http://www.dukandiet.co.uk. 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 this..my 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 & milk...no olive oil...yucks)
Chicken baked in Aluminium Foil & 1 bottle of Pepsi Max 0 Cal (drink throughout the day+ green tea)
(I have it marinated in basil, rosemary, coriander, black pepper, paprika, lemon and salt and oh..mustard :D)
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? Sodium will cause water retention thus making you fat...so green tea...wink wink...will reduce the sodium content in the body...so less water retention! wuhuuuu....
