The Dukan Diet Review
The Dukan Diet has been gaining a lot of publicity recently in the UK.
It is the brainchild of French nutritionist Pierre Dukan and is based on a very strict diet regime that promotes the ideology of taking on more protein while cutting back drastically on carbs and fats.
The Dukan Diet and The Atkins Diet are not million miles apart and are similar in so much both are based on principle of making the body attack its own fat reserves.
How Does The Dukan Diet Work
There are a number of phases in the Dukan Diet that need to be followed.
Phase 1: This is the the Attack phase. You eat low-fat protein only food and drink a lot of liquid (ideally water but coffee, tea and diet sodas are acceptable too but they have to be zero calories and zero fat).
Phase 2: This is the cruise phase. You have several days of relatively little sustenance but protein alternated with days of nothing but protein and vegetables. Salad is included as well as vegetables.
Phase 3: Also known as the consolidation phase, this phase starts once you reach your ideal weight. In this phase you are unlikely lose any weight here – you just maintain your newly achieved target weight. The consolidation phase adds a little fruit, bread and cheese to the mix, as well as one “celebration meal” per week.
Phase 4: This phase just loops to back to phases 1-3. It says, “Go back to eating whatever you like, but continue to use the basic rules of the Consolidation Phase as a safety platform (eat unlimited protein and vegetables, one piece of fruit a day, two slices of wholemeal bread, a portion of cheese, two starchy foods and two celebration meals a week).
