It is reported that Carole Middleton, the mother of Kate Middleton, used the Dukan Diet to slim down for the wedding. Endorsed by many other celebrities, the on-line Dukan Diet is now sweeping Britain with its ‘eat all you like’ promise, daily counselling and motivation – and track record of long-lasting, quick weight loss. Dr Dukan’s innovative approach to a healthy eating plan has long been established in the UK for many years with his books regularly topping the best-sellers lists, but now, with an on-line version, The Dukan Diet is really taking off. The reasons for this are that you can enter your personal details on line which allows dieters to establish an optimum weight. Dukan Diet then prepares a personalised route towards it. This will be based on their habits, exercise regime, and even preferred foods. With approved foods they really can ‘eat all you like’. Every day dieters are presented with a wide choice of breakfast, lunch and dinner menus with even a list of permitted snacks. A four stage personal lifetime weight control plan is then inaugurated
The Dukan Diet has four phases incorporated into its regime.
- A brief Attack Phase of between two and seven days which kick starts the diet and gives immediate results. There are 72 protein foods to choose from at this stage and you can eat as much as you like from this list.
- This is followed by the main Cruise Phase where you add 28 vegetables – as much as you want- which enables you to lose around 2lb/week until the desired target weight is reached.
- The Consolidation Phase is formulated to stop any re-bound effect as you wan to keep off the weight you have lost and avoid putting on pounds while eating in a more relaxed way. You can add cheese, complete whole bread, fruits, starchy food and ‘Celebration’ meals.
- Finally a Stabilisation Phase ensures that you keep communicating with the Dukan diet website to keep the weight off
