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 thatPrawns  - A protein food on the Dukan Diet 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!

    Dear Amber, To day is my 4th day, of attack phase so far I have only lost 1.7 Kg. In the mornings the scale shows more though. All 3 days my diet was as follows,
    early morning 1 glass of warm water on empty stomach, after one hour one cup of skimmed milk tea ,
    break fast oat bran ( 1.5 tbsp with skimmed milk ) and one whole egg with one egg yolk omelet.
    Lunch I cook the chicken breast with spices and cut into pieces and put a drop of olive oil on pan and heat it and eat with 3 smallest red onion.
    then in the after noon i have one cup of skimmed milk tea with sweetener.
    dinner – same old chicken, but one night night i had lean beef cooked with spices.
    That was the second night after that night I was constipated. can’t lose much weight also.so i tried drinking some tamarind. (here we drink it if we get constipation ) but didn’t work. But I also found a mishap in my diet, i did not exercise, I walked alot, i cleaned my husban’d office but i didn’t do the 20 miniutes so today the 4th day I did the full 30 minutes excercise. Dear lily please let me know if I should continue the attack phase for 7 days or stop at 5 days. I dont mind continuing if I can lose more weight. also please let m eknow what i can do for constipation- Thank you.

      Hi Lily

      Your weight will fluctuate a lot throughout the day and this is why you should weigh yourself at the same time each day. First thing in the morning after having visited the bathroom is best.

      If you are suffering with constipation you’ve done well to lose 1.7 kg.

      You seem to be doing everything right but depending on how bad your constipation it might be worth moving to Cruise so that you can add some vegetables to your diet or you could take a look at the hints in this post. http://thedukandietsite.com/1701/treating-constipation-on-the-dukan-diet/

      Best wishes
