Can I Drink Protein Shakes on the Dukan Diet?
This is a question which I’ve been asked a few times and which I know that visitors to my site are typing into Google to find an answer to.
Dr Dukan covers the topic of protein shakes or protein powders in a couple of places in his book and he does not recommend that these “foods” are used other than exceptionally to either prevent missing a meal or to stop you eating something which would have been more damaging to your diet.
So why does Dr Dukan have such a poor opinion of protein powders and protein shakes:
- They are artificial.
- We are not designed to eat powder.
- These drinks do not appeal to our senses or satify them.
- The prolonged use of protein powders can result in bulimia.
- They are very expensive.
- They lack fiber.
