Ever heard of Dukan Diet? Well, I hadn’t, until about a little more than a year ago. I was trying hard to lose weight back then for a while, I was around 65 kilos (and I am 1.62cm in height) and I had never been so heavy before. A friend visiting Helsinki eventually introduced me Dukan and that changed my life. For the first time ever I was on a real diet, and oh my what a diet, but in the end I lost 15 kilos in 6 months.
Ok, I might have followed the diet a bit too strictly, I was planning to go down to 55 but actually I dropped down to 50, but in the end I felt really so much better.
My breakfasts during the diet time involved nothing but this simple pancake. This is the famous Dukan pancake. This one I will write now is the one for Attack phase, which is the first phase. The amount of oat bran gradually increases as you go along the other phases.
I don’t know if it just became a simple habit or if I really liked it but even now I am still eating this pancake for most of the breakfasts.
1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
20 ml oat bran (kauralese in Finnish)
20 ml no fat yoghurt or no fat fromage frais (I always made it with yoghurt)
1. In a mixing bowl, put egg, oat bran and yoghurt and whisk it.
2. Put a flat pan suitable for making pancake on medium high heat. Put a drop of olive oil, then with the help of a paper towel, spread the oil on the surface on the pan while wiping out the excess oil.
