slimming secret of Dr Pierre Dukan
Green tea to break through a plateau
You are following our diet "apparently" normally, you feel as if you are not having any lapses and yet your weight is stagnating.You are stagnating? Oh Don't worry, this always happens to "dieting" men and woman. I don't know of anyone who has lost 20 pounds without having experienced at least once a plateau lasting over 6 days. Beyond that we call it a "pause".
In this situation there are lots of things you can do. Do make extra sure that you haven't made a mistake, that it's not to do with water retention because of the pre-menopause or because a period is due ... But among the panoply of ideas to suggest there is one that I particularly like and this is green tea. For three days, don't drink any more water only drink green tea in the morning, throughout the morning, at lunch, at tea-time, in the evening and even during the night if you are getting up to go to the toilet. Cold, hot, with ice, as a sorbet, however you like it just as long as its NON-STOP GREEN TEA and if you keep up with the diet(as well as minimum physical exercise) you stand every chance of breaking through this plateau.
