Dukan Diet – Update on Using Olive Oil and other Oils
This information has now been amended again by Dr Dukan – Read the latest update .
I’ve just been reading the history of today’s online coaching chat on the Dukan Diet’s UK website and I’ve got an update which comes straight from Dr Dukan himself, as he was taking part in the chat today.
One of the followers asked if she was harming her health by not eating oil, as she is being told that this harms her heart and her health and that she was becoming worried by this.
Dr Dukan answered her question personally and explained that we do need some fat in our diets, but pointed out that his 72 protein foods do contain fat and this would provided enough fat for your health needs. He then continued to say
” ….But I have good news for you, since one month, I have decided especially for Mediterranean people, who are used to cook with olive oil, to include in their diet two tea spoons of oil (rather rapeseed or olive one). And now, I have opened this new element to every other country. have a nice day.”
This increase in the amount of oil that can be used in phases following on from the Attack phase will be welcomed by many followers as it will mean that you can have the occasional roast potato, or be a little more liberal with your salad dressing, or it will just making cooking meat or fish that be easier.
Later one of the followers then said so the 3 drops of oil is now 2 teaspoons and asked if the tolerated list would be updated.
Virginie, one of the French coaches said
“…Yes you can now have 2 teaspoons of oil allowed, not tolerated !…”
So the two teaspoons of oil don’t even have to be counted as one of your two tolerated items!
