Support for the Dukan Diet
My site provides free information and support to anyone who is following or considering following the Dukan Diet to lose weight. In my posts you will find hints, tips and information as well as many Dukan Diet recipes suitable for the first two phases of the diet plan. I also sometimes provide general information about losing weight, maintaining your ideal weight, eating healthily and exercising.
What is the Dukan Diet?
The Dukan Diet is a diet plan which has been developed and refined for over thirty years by Dr Pierre Dukan, a French nutritionist and doctor.
Describing the diet as “a planetary success” and as “the revolutionary weight loss plan that has taken the world by storm! ” is obviously a little bit of sales hype on behalf of Dr Dukan, but his diet is certainly an international success as his Dukan Diet book has been published in 20 countries in 10 different languages. I also know that visitors to my site come from all over the world.
Unlike many other diet plans that you may have tried in the past, the Dukan Diet plan not only gives you the tools to lose weight, it also helps you develop new healthier eating habits that will allow you to stay at your target weight forever. There is nothing magical about the diet plan, although many dieters are astounded by the amount of weight they lose in the Attack Phase which is the first phase of the diet.
The Dukan Diet Phases
The Dukan Diet is a diet plan with four distinct phases. The first two weight loss phases, Attack (Phase 1) and Cruise (Phase 2) are based on the use of 100 allowed foods that make the food you eat high in protein but low in sugar, fat and carbohydrates. These 100 allowed foods are made up from a list of 72 low fat, protein rich foods and a list of 28 vegetables which are low in sugar and starches. In Phase 3 – Consolidation you start to add back fruit, hard cheese and starchy foods until you reach the final phase Phase 4 – Stabilisation which you follow to keep off the weight forever.
The Dukan Diet of course wouldn’t be the Dukan Diet without the another main feature, the daily serving of oat bran!
What also sets the diet apart from many others is the fact that almost all of the 100 allowed foods can be eaten freely without restriction and that there is no counting of calories or carbs!
