Dukan Diet News: Dukan Diet Updated for Vegetarians
I popped onto the UK Dukan Diet Site last night to check out the online coaching chat and have now got some really great news for all Vegetarian followers of the Dukan Diet as Dr Dukan has refined his guidance and there are now more foods you can eat.
On the chat vivek1804 asked virginie what proteins vegetarians eat on the Dukan Diet and whether kidney beans, black beans or pulses are considered high in protein. Virginie advised that vegetarians can eat:
- Silken Tofu
- Plain Quorn
- Quorn Spicy Light Bites
- Quorn Roast Light Bites
- Textured Soy Protein
She also advised that low fat dairy products could be replaced by low fat no sugar added plain soy milk product but the biggest surprise to me was that shethen said
“Furthermore, you can replace any PP food by the following items :
- 100 gms of wholegrain cooked starches (quinoa, amarante, brown rice, etc) = 1 serving (PP)
- 100 gms of cooked pulses (chickpeas, lentils, etc) + 50 gms of cooked starches = 1 serving (PP)”
These changes are certainly going to make following the Dukan Diet a whole lot easier for vegetarians but before any meat eating Dukan Dieter decides to give up meat so they can follow the vegetarian version of the Dukan Diet virginie also warned vivek1804 that the weight loss when following this version of the diet can be slower!
Later in the chat virginie advises liviazig that Seitan is also totally allowed.
