There is a new diet hitting America. Dr Dukan is a very quiet and humble man that stumbled across this quick way to lose weight. Despite the fact that you can loose weight quickly that does not mean that this is a fad diet. The Dukan diet is serious and is meant for long term weight loss.
One of the main things that you will see about the Dukan diet is the use of bran. This is a little more difficult to find in the US than it is in France but hopefully this will change soon. Of course America has plenty of oatmeal but this is something different. The Dukan diet boasting “Over 5 million French people can’t be wrong.”
This diet is high protein and low fat. There are four faces that the dieter must follow. Below is what diet information as found in the NY Times.
The first phase encourages dieters to eat as much as they want of non-fatty, protein-rich foods, including oat bran — a key component — washed down with oceans of water. The second stage introduces vegetables, but no fruit; the third brings with it two slices of bread, a serving of cheese and fruit and two servings of carbohydrates a day, with two weekly “celebration” meals with wine and dessert (the diet is French, after all); and the final stage — six days a week of “anything goes” and one day of reversion to strict stage one.
