“It took more than a day to put it on. It will take more than a day to take it off. Don’t give up.”
The bad news for the day is that I gained .8 lbs. However, ironically enough, I lost 1/2 an inch off my waist. So, what gives, Dr. Dukan?
Dr. Dukan actually discussed the answer to this question on the official Dukan website. He mentioned that if you’re losing inches but gaining weight, it may be due to water retention. After all, you wouldn’t be losing inches if you weren’t slimming down so the scale may just be reflecting some extra water weight. This makes sense to me because although Bob ate the same foods as I did yesterday, he lost one lb today. His weight loss is also a lot more inconsistent than mine. Sometimes, he’ll gain one lb over a two-day period and then drop two lbs the very next day. Overall, he is losing weight so that is the important thing to keep in mind. I hope this comes as some encouraging news for those who are going through the same thing!
First, make a 1/2 portion of the savory Dukan Bread. The recipe can be found here. Make sure to toast the bread until it’s extra crispy.
