Stuck at 166lbs for 10 days…. It is time to minimise my carb intake.
PP days - 25g carb maximum!
PV days - 30-50g carb maximum!
I have to be VERY STRICT on a Dukan diet! No excuses
My favorite breakfast
Oooh it looks delicious! I will try this one tomorrow for my PP days :)

I want to burn my body fat effectively. I try to minimise my carb intake on Pure Protein days along with 2x tbsp oat bran to stay in ketosis, which is 25-30g carbs a day to keep your body in ketosis. To be honest, I find it harder as I do not want my body goes into a starvation mode (under 800kcal a day) it will most likely damage my metabolism rate - hopefully not!! I also will try to upper my protein intake. My body only needs 50-130g of protein a day with mild activity. We must not lose our muscles, which is very important because we need muscles working on our important vital organs like heart and etc… I know Dukan diet is very strict with low fat and lean meats but we are all still getting some fat from meat, fish and whole eggs (Be aware of your cholesterol levels). I ruled myself not to go under 30g of fat. If I go under 30g of fat my body will eat my muscles instead of burning fat turn into a skinny fat!
Oh and I have to put a limit on my carb intake up to 50g on Protein + Vegetables days
Breakfast - One whole hard boiled egg with 2x tbsp oatbran porridge with skimmed milk and a spoonful of fat-free greek yogurt and cinnamon.
Lunch - Lean mince beef with onions and a bit of olive oil and one whole hard boiled egg and a couple of roast chicken strips.
Dinner - I think I will skip dinner for today because I ate way too much yesterday and even a naughty german sausage from Christmas markets and I treated myself with a oat bran galette with custard last night! (I used custard power, skimmed milk and stevia) By the way, Custard powder is allowed on a tolerated item lists.
My body will enter in ketosis tonight! Looking forward to weigh in tomorrow :)

I often bend the rules of Dukan Diet with coconut flour, I use it as a tolerated item. I am trying to minimise my tolerated item intake. I generally prefer coconut flour than custard powder, ketchup, soya milk etc… I know Dr Dukan does not allow someone to eat any form of flour, I honestly think it is a load of rubbish because coconut flour is naturally low carb, high fibre and gluten-free, which is way better than oat bran but hang on oat bran is still good for you! Remember everybody is different. I strongly believe that we should eat a little bit of healthy fats in our dukan diet plan. Our body obviously needs a bit of healthy fat for fuel.
By the way, I am still losing weight, it is all down to coconut flour and coconut oil! I believe so…
