What is the Dukan Diet plan?
Welcome to my section dedicated to the principles of the Dukan Diet plan. If you are considering following this diet yourself and looking for further information, I hope the contents of these pages will help you understand what the Dukan Diet is, what Dr Dukan recommends and why as well as find out why so many people and celebrities swear by this amazing plan.
So what is the Dukan Diet?
The Dukan Diet is the creation of French doctor Pierre Dukan and the result of a long career of working with and helping overweight people reach their target weight and, more importantly, keep the lost pounds once and for all.
The main reason why I decided to follow this diet and what makes it so popular worldwide is its simple guidelines. In a nutshell, the diet focuses on the temporary elimination of carbohydrates which are replaced by delicious meals with a high protein content, a daily dose of oat bran and a compulsory daily walk. No calorie counting, no diet pills or weird foods and certainly no need to go hungry.
The Dukan Diet plan is structured in 4 easy-to-follow phases – take a look at the links below for further information about each stage including allowed foods and example menus:
The Dukan Diet Phases
Put the carbs aside and follow this phase for a short period of time to kick-starting weight loss and feel motivated to carry on with the program.
During this stage you will alternate Pure Protein days with Protein & Vegetables days to reach your target weight.
Time to gradually re-introduce carbs! Once reached your target weight, this phase will ensure you don’t put any weight back on.
What I like to call the recipe for life. Just a few recommendations to follow for the rest of your life and ensure you won’t have to diet ever again.
