That's not a problem. Whatever point in your life you are, drDukan diet is a little shock for your body. First phase is suppose to be a surprise for the organism, but cheer up! It's only 1-7 days for the beggining. In my case it's 5 days. According to drDukan dieting philosophy, first phase should last:
1 day - if you want to lose 5kg;
3 days - if you want to lose 5-10kg;
5 days - if you want to lose 10-20kg;
7 days - if you want to lose more than 20kg.
These days are so special for you diet, because they are preparing you for a new style of food.
You may feel weak and hungry, unfortunately, we all are used to eat too much - so this is normal process of getting usedd to new type of food.
Don't make excuses, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO EAT SWEETS, even to use sugar!
