Description

# 1 international bestselling diet book coming to North America
 
Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like.
 
Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.
 
The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss
 

Phase one: Attack
Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved.
 
Phase Two: Cruise
Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight.
 
Phase Three: Consolidation
Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced.  Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom.
 
Phase Four: Stabilization
This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight – provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week. 
 
For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success.  The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions.

    Stay away from this copy of the Atkins Diet! Dr. Dukan is being sued by the French Ministry of Health for this dangerous diet. Have you noticed that this book has reviews from before it was even released in the USA? This is a scam!
  • Follow the plan!

    Having just started this program ( not a diet ) I have lost 5.5 lbs in the first two days! I am also a medical professional ( dentist ) and have always struggled with my weight. I have two young boys to keep up with. This program simply makes sense for a lifetime strategy for health and not just another yo-yo diet. I'm going the distance for many reasons, one of which was the loss of one of my best friends to a heart attack at age 47 three weeks ago. I'm not going to let this happen to me! Give this a serious look! Sincerely, Wayne Sutton,DDS.
  • Finally, a diet that WORKS!

    Dr. Dukan is just amazing -- I lost 17 pounds on this diet, and my doctor checked my cholesterol levels and was simply amazed at the dramatic difference for the better!! She said she is going to use me as an example to all her other patients that it can be done! This is a great diet -- I wish I had seen that iTunes had the e-book available before I bought it somewhere else!

    I have read your book and am very impressed with your strategy for permanent weight loss. I am on your plan and just finished the attack phase. I only want to lose 8 lbs but that may be the toughest since it's not that much compared to so many other people. The more you have to lose the easier it is in the beginning and the last few pounds are the hardest. I lost 1.5 over the two day Attack but will continue because I want to see of this method works. I also am recommending your book for my book club. I think that this information is valuable for any and everyone.
  • Worthy read

    Very useful book and convincing methodology. The last two phases are particularly important and innovative
  • Be my guest!!!

    After reading the book and trying the diet myself all I can say is "Be my guest". The first phase works great if you don't have a job to go to since all you do is cook meats and oat bran. Sure you loose weight, but try anything with as few calories and the pounds will surely melt off. Not as incredible as many of the comments I read before purchasing the book. Use your money to buy yourself a great big basket of fresh, in season local produce instead!
