Today I got a lot of hate for what I am doing with the Dukan supplement experiment. Look, I do not recommend doing a week of protein shakes, nor is it recommended by the Dukan Diet. This is something I am trying to figure out for myself, should supplements and protein shakes be allowed on the Dukan Diet. Can they be integrated healthily into your daily routine. If you hit a long plateau… could you do one day of shakes to push yourself through it? If you are a busy person is it acceptable to drink a shake as a meal replacement?
I am doing an extreme thing here, do not do it yourself. But I think I am proving that shakes can be a part of your Dukan Dieting. That’s all I wanted to do.
Yes, in this video I do mention, and am happy that I lost 12lbs in 4 days. That is because I am happy. I have never done that before and it’s been difficult only drinking shakes. I actually had someone unfriend me on Facebook for doing this experiment. I’m sorry that it offended you, but I am just trying to change something here. To prove that it wouldn’t be damaging to the Diet, so that if someone is busy and drinks a shake they don’t feel like they cheated because you don’t need that negativity, it shouldn’t be considered cheating.
It really hurt my feelings though. I cried, I am right now THIS close to ordering a pizza and just feeling guilty and horrible for the rest of the night. I’m sorry my experiment offended you, I’m not trying to promote unhealthy eating, I am just trying to fix the guilt that some people feel when they drink a protein shake and think it’s cheating, or show that maybe when you hit a plateau this is a viable option for you, to get people down to their goal weights faster and keep them on the diet longer.
