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.

    Tomorrow I am starting Cruise phase.
    What If I’am working out during dukan diet and I used to take shakes(BooTea Shake) after workout. Is that OK to do that? I don’t use them as meal replacement.
    P.S. Did not use them during the attack phase.
    Thank you in advance,

      Hi Greta

      I wouldn’t recommend using them as it will slow down your weight loss.

      Best wishes
