I have only a few pounds left till I reach my "True Weight" and am mentally preparing myself for the switch to Consolidation.
I have been on a diet since 5 months and very hesitant as I have cheated only once (had a nice Dukan conform dinner but added one slice of bred and a few low-carb drinks) which resulted in an "overnight" gain of more than a kilo. It seems like I immediately retained the water. I got rid of it with PP days now but I wonder if a weight gain is to be expected when suddenly introducing 2 daily slices of bred, one piece of fruit and so on (as per the Dukan Diet Rules)?
I would like to know if those of you who switched had any problems?
Would you advise to
* go below True Weight to have a buffer?
* introduce new foods bit by bit instead of all at once?
* increase excercise intensity/frequency to level out the additional carbs and calories?
Thankful for any tipp you can give or experience you can share...
Lowcarbing my way through first Atkins and now Dukan, getting closer and closer to my target weight.
