Day 8 of the Attack Phase

October 3rd, 2004

Today was a great day, food wise and spiritually! I really love Sundays. My husband (who is actually doing the diet with me and has lost 7.2 lbs!) and I went to church and then to a Brazilian Steakhouse for a late lunch. All you can eat meat, how could it get any better? Well, the steakhouse is in downtown and when we were walking back to our car we saw a homeless man on the street. :( I so wanted to help him! He looked so sad and hungry. I told my husband that we really need to start helping in our new community (we moved here 3 months ago). I said wouldn't it be awesome if we can pick up some individually wrapped foods at Costco like chips, crackers, canned meat, drinks, etc. and make dinners in brown paper bags and pass them around to the homeless? He said yes! So we picked up our usual stuff (chicken, greek yogurt, eggs...) too and went home. I also put a bible verse in the bags also. (“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13) So we made the bags up and drove back to downtown and walked around giving them out. We helped 6 people! They were so grateful! I felt so good helping my community. Anyways...

What I ate:
9 am: 1/2 cups egg whites
          5 pieces of turkey bacon
          3 oz of feta cheese
1:30 pm: Um... a lot of food
               a small salad with a little bit of spring mix lettuce and spinach leaves
               filet mignon
               turkey wrapped in bacon
               chicken thigh
8 pm: 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
          4 oz sugar free jello

These numbers I am guessing on because of lunch:

Calories: 2000 Protein: 194 g Fat: 124 g!!! Net Carbs: 23 g Sodium: 4269 mg

The fat is super high because I had salad dressing and full fat cheeses at the restaurant. Carbs are super low though :) I walked for about 2 hours today... Maybe 570 calories burned? We ate so much for lunch that I wasn't hungry until late. I did gain a pound so I am at 9.2 lbs total for 8 days. I think all the calories and definitely the fat made me gain the pound. :(

I think I had a pretty good 1st Dukan weekend. Hope next week goes well for me and all the Dukan-eers out there! xx


  1. Lizzy...that sounds so nice, you and your husband sound like a really fantastic couple xoxo

  2. I have been reading your blog and I am very impressed! I actually had a question for you. I didn't weigh myself when I started the diet because to me it wasn't about the weight it was about feeling better in my clothes. So I was just wondering when did you start noticing a difference when you put on your clothes like jeans and stuff?

  3. This blog is really a great source of information for me. Thank you for giving me such important information.
