Presently, mom of imminent queen of UK, Carole Middleton has once again veered the limelight to the Dukan diet – that was created by French dietician Doctor P. Dukan. The diet has been the mainstay in over a million houses in France where females seem to be meeting with successes.

Dukan Diet boils down to 4 phases incorporating several of the finest diet approaches.

Stage I - The attack phase is a protein-rich, zero-carb strategy, a more stringent adaptation to the South Beach & Atkins Diet. People could select protein laden food varieties numbering to seventy-two in total that people could select from in the seven days of dieting.

Stage II – The Cruising phase wherein a protein-rich dietetic intake is alternated with a vegan dietetic intake on alternating days. Alongside the just mentioned seventy-four protein-laden food forms, there are another twenty-eight less carbohydrate veggies.

Stage III – Deemed the Consolidation phase wherein re-addition of carbohydrates are then done into everyday dietetic intake in miniscule quantities for avoiding weight increase. The follower is permitted duo meals in a week’s time wherein he/she could eat as his/her liking & the objective is a pound of loss for each five days in such phase.

Stage IV - Ultimately, no sooner has one’s attained targeted weight, the Stabilization Phase would commence. It is phase number IV & the last one having a slight twist – one is allowed eating whatever one wants daily apart from a single day on a week-by-week basis (Thursday being the chosen day) when one reverts to the Attack Phase & eats a protein-laden, carb-less regime. Founder of the Dukan Diet is a firm believer of the fact that when weight is taken off in this manner & one follows through till the last phase, one could maintain one’s targeted weight for a lifetime.
