My Dukan Diet Plan – Lets get started!

Well, I started! My weight this morning was 108 kg (237.6 lbs). I always assumed I was about 100kg or just under. Maybe thats a memory from when I last got on the scale.

Yesterday I went to the supermarket and bought a load or protein. I don’t know why I seem to have this hoarding mentality but I guess I am afraid of being in the house and there being nothing permissable to eat!

Two setbacks. One is that the nice microphone didnt arrive in time to record the video and the second is a more serious one. It seems that the concept of Oat Bran has not reached Crete, where I live. I checked everywhere in the town I live and a friend trawled the supermarkets in the nearest big city. Nothing!. So I have asked a friend in the UK to send me some. Hopefully, it won’t take too long and also hopefully it won’t affect the diet too much.

My breakfast was 3 slices of low-fat ham with 2 boiled eggs and a small spoon of 0% fat Greek youghurt. I will have a grilled chicken breast after I finish this post.

For those interested, here are some before pictures at and around 108 kg. These were taken last February.

Thats me in the middle

gawd! look at the size of me here!

      Good luck on the diet, Jacky.

      Porridge oats are not the same as oatbran, though. See if you can get someone to send you some over from the UK. Its a problem here on Crete. There was one shop in Chania who said they may start stocking it – Gaia Wholefoods shop near the football stadium. but I don’t know if they ever did.

      Also someone told me that some INKA supermarkets had it…but I have not seen in anywhere yet.
