Dukan Diet 2: 7 Steps of the Nutritional Staircase
There is a new version of the Dukan Diet that was launched in the UK on 1 January 2015 and on 3 February 2015 in the US. The US version is The 7 Steps (of the Nutritional Staircase) and the UK version is The Dukan Diet 2 – the 7 StepsThe Nutritional Staircase is something which Pierre Dukan has been developing since 2012 and details of the staircase have been available on both the US and UK official websites for sometime. It is now fully honed and ready to launch as an alternative to the original Dukan Diet.
The strapline for the new alternative version of the Dukan Diet is “the gentle way to lose weight without giving anything up”. If you think this means that you can lose weight without giving anything up I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed. What it should say is “the gentle way to lose weight without giving anything up for long periods of time”.
Dr Dukan realised that although the strictness of his original Dukan Diet suited many people there were also many people who were put off so he developed an alternative version of the Dukan Diet is aimed at those who found the rigidity and exclusion of certain foods for long periods of the original Dukan Diet too demanding. It is for those who are in less of a hurry to lose weight, who have a busy social life and don’t want to give up enjoying tasty treats for long periods of time.
For example I know that many people have found the exclusion of fruit from the weight loss phases of the Dukan Diet very difficult to cope with and this method allows you to eat fruit 5 days out of every 7. Also as there are more food groups included it should provide a more nutritionally balanced diet.
This 7 day plan is also an excellent method to use in Stabilisation to help keep your weight on track once you have reached your target weight.
