DUKAN DIET Dr Pierre Dukan

by: Dr Pierre Dukan

The Dukan Diet is a unique 4-step programme, combining two steps to lose your unwanted weight and two steps to keep it off for good. This incredibly popular diet book has hit Britain by storm and is the title that everyone is talking about. With a list of 100 foods of which you can eat as much as you like, Dr. Dukan has found a way to make dieting much easier than you ever thought it could be.

Taking up the Dukan Diet isn't a solitary activity either, there are more than a hundred forums, sites and blogs on the Internet, dedicated to the Dukan method, with thousands of volunteers working to advance your progress. The Dukan Diet website also helps you along the way, including a weekly recipe and personal online coaching, with the option to receive a progress report every morning and evening. If you’re serious about losing the weight, but you’re naturally a gregarious, social being who hasn’t the time or desire to take up daily jogging, then the Dukan Diet has been formed with precisely you in mind.

We are such creatures of habit, that breaking our accustomed pattern of how much we eat is the real challenge. Once you’ve found a new habit and stuck to it then it becomes a part of the new you: someone who is, quite literally, comfortable in their own skin.

Made up by 4 phases, the diet keeps you interested you from the very beginning, so that you never want to give it up, making this one of the easier diets to stick to. Starting with an ATTACK phase, made up of high-protein foods, the weight loss is then continued with a CRUISE phase, which leads you to what Dr. Dukan calls, ‘Your True Weight’, with a more balanced diet gradually introduced. The third phase, CONSOLIDATION, allows a monitored freedom, with the aim of establishing your new weight. Finally STABILIZATION is the most important step, because it ensures that you stay slim with no set-backs.
