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!

    Ricotta Pudding done in microwave (my recipe)–fast and good! I keep my egg yolk consumption down to one per day, hence the egg substitute in this; I have my whole egg for breakfast whereas this is good for anytime:
    !/2 cup FF ricotta cheese
    3-4 tbs egg substitute (or whites)
    Sweetener/flavoring for sweet OR spices/herbs for savory–maybe put a portion of well-drained veggies in he bottom of your cooking dish then cover w/ seasoned mixture.
    Nuke at 50% power until fairly firm (edges will cook too fast if you use full power). Let cool to a good eating temp and enjoy!

    Hi Amber…back in the fold and eager to restart…missed you and your excellent, no-nonsense advice.
    Will keep you posted on how well my weight goes down and my blood sugars stabilize–I anticipate great success. This diet is fantastic for a dairy freak like me.
    A quick note about cottage and ricotta cheeses–cottage cheese in the US is LOADED w/ salt, so much so that it triggers cravings for me–I’ve been known to down most of the big carton at one sitting. Ricotta tends to have only about 1/3-2/3 as much salt for the same serving size, depending on the brand. It also costs more, encouraging portion control. READ YOUR LABELS!!

      Hi mell

      How much weight do you need to lose and approximately how many calories a day do you think you are eating?

      Best wishes

    Must I eat 2 slices of whole grain bread on consolidation stage except on pp days? Must I have a fruit daily and 11/2 oz of cheese?

    • Amber on October 22, 2014

      Hi Bob

      You should try to eat all the recommended foods except on Dukan Thursday.

      Kind regards
