Morning weigh-in 93.5kgs

  • Total lost 18.8kg/ 41.36lbs

Watercheck –2l – mostly plain water with 2 cups of tea and a coffee in there somewhere


Morning snack

  • Mug of tea


  • 1/2 leftover roast chicken from Tescos
  • 1 packet of cooked ham from Tescos

Afternoon snack

  • mug of coffee


  • 10 oz fillet steak
  • rocket & parmesan salad
  • about 6 cocktails


  • 15 cycling to work
  • 60 mins walking around town after work to social engagements

OK, so a bit of a boozy evening.  Not to worry – aside from the booze, it was Another Perfect Day.  Lots of tasty cakes and chocolate biscuits and leftover sandwiches in the office, but I resisted them all – hooray! I was tempted, but then thought of my little Dukan community which has been so supportive, and I resisted.  Thank you all!

I also left my bike at work this evening, so as to walk around town to my social engagements, and walk home from them too.  This’ll force me to go out tomorrow to pick up my bike, necessitating more walking and cycling – sneaky! 😉

Feeling very virtuous today, despite the cocktails. It was a friend’s birthday, which meant that cocktails were obligatory.  Most of them were low carb cocktails, despite the fact that alcohol is supposed to kick one out of Ketosis.  Writing this just on arriving home, still a little tipsy, but none the worse for wear after my evening weigh-in (I know, I weigh myself too much, but I’m always interested to know how what I do during the day affects my weight)

The flaxseed bread is definitely a winner.  I think I’ll continue with the recipe posted from yesterday, at least until I start experiencing a plateau, then I’ll look at what’s in it and how I can adjust to lower the fat levels.

One response to this post.

  1. Oat bran will stop you going into ketosis in attack, and yogurt, oat bran and loads of vegetables will certainly prevent you ever getting there during cruise or later phases!
    Remember that:
    “The world famous DuPont company famously hired Dr Alfred Pennington to investigate why low calorie diets have never ever actually worked. (Remember that fact – LOW CALORIE DIETS HAVE NEVER WORKED – yet even today people say “JUST EAT LESS CALORIES AND YOU’LL LOSE WEIGHT” – wrong!) .

    So, in 1950, Pennington put the boardroom members on a high-fat, high-protein, low carb, unrestricted calorie diet and they all lost weight.

    He concluded that people can metabolise fat completely but not carbohydrates – people get fat because they cannot fully break down carbohydrate, and so it is instead stored. (Notice that this is Atkins’s Diet years before his “revolution”).

    But it was too late already for DuPont and Pennington; everyone now accepted that calorie counting was the scientific dominant view – they even taught it in schools — even though it is actually wrong.”
