Wow, time sure flies, doesn’t it? It’s been nearly a year since I started this blog last May. It’s hard to comprehend how many recipes I made in just a few months. In addition to the many that were posted on this blog there were MANY MORE disasters that didn’t quite make the cut. My kitchen really felt my wrath during the dukan diet
Some of you may wonder what happens after the dukan diet. Do you gain all of your weight back and then some? What are you supposed to eat? How do you keep it off? The truth is, I am no expert in this department; never was. Just an overly ambitious dieter who threw some ingredients together and hoped the end result would be edible. After the dukan diet, I did a lot less cooking and guess what? I ate carbs! Even so, many of my carbs were part of lean cuisines and the like due to my lack of time. I eat lots of greek yogurt for lunch and I tend to cheat on weekends. I weigh myself often during the week days and keep my hands off the REALLY bad stuff. The result? I am maybe 2 lbs heavier than I was when I ended the dukan diet. To be frank, I worked my but off to shed those pounds and I am not going back. So, I just kept an eye on my weight, found what works for me, and maintained my weight as best I can.
For those of you who followed my blog as I progressed through the dukan diet, you may recall my mentioning starting a Master’s program (which is the cause of the end of my blogging days). I am now in my third semester and still busier than ever. Attributing to this are my 10 hour work days on top of my school work. It’s exhausting but it keeps me busy. Too busy to think about food during the week days. Right now, I’m trying to shed some additional pounds off for the summer so I reference my blog often for recipes. It was nice to see that there’s still a good amount of traffic coming through! Thank you all for your comments. Although I may not always respond, do know that I read them ALL. Perhaps one day I will return to this blog and the dukan diet to get rid of the last stubborn pounds but for now, I will show my support from afar!
For the fun of it (and since we’re on memory lane), below are a list of my favorite dukan recipes!

Good luck to you all! Keep on dukan truckin’!
