The Dukan Diet was devised by a French medical doctor, Dr. Pierre Dukan, to be a permanent weight loss solution. This is an innovative 4-step program that will attack that unwanted weight and help to keep it off. The Dukan Diet book and the Dukan Diet menu book can be purchased  online here.

*NEW* Get The “Cliff Notes”

The first plan of attack is to eat as much protein rich foods as you can for 2 to 7 days. You can eat as much fish and eggs, as well as most meats as you would like. Some dairy products can be eaten as well, such as non-fat yogurt, skimmed milk and cottage cheese. Remember to drink plenty of water every day.

During step 2, you will be adding 28 vegetables to the protein rich foods. By eating protein foods one day and adding vegetables to the menu every other day, a dieter should lose 2 pounds every week. You will need to stay on this phase of the Dukan Diet until your desired weight has been met.

Adding fruits, breads, starchy foods and cheese along with 2 celebration meals is step 3. You will want to stay on this phase by multiplying 5 days for every 1 pound that you have lost. In other words, for every 5 pounds that you loose, stay on this phase 3 for 25 days.

Finally, you will be able to eat without gaining weight back by following 3 rules. Choose one day a week that you only eat protein rich foods. Be sure to walk for at least 20 minutes a day, and eat 3 tablespoons of oat bran every day. When all is said and done, you need to remember to take the stairs instead of an elevator for that added exercise.
