Dukan Diet The French Version Of Atkins – Praised By Celebs

dukan diet

I remember when the Atkins diet first arrived on the scene, it became a cultural phenomenon that caused a large majority of Americans to switch to a low carb, high protein diet (meaning meat, meat, and more meat). The popularity of Atkins has dwindled, but it looks like the Dukan Diet may be taking its place.

It has been reported that Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Lopez, and Kate Middleton are avid followers of the Dukan Diet, and the book has been a best-seller in France for years, claiming to have helped over 5 million French citizens lose weight.

Created by French physician Pierre Dukan, the diet (much like Atkins) has four phases and focuses on a low calorie, high protein diet plan. Essentially you can eat as much lean fish, poultry, eggs, nonfat dairy, and meats (excluding pork and lamb— so at least they’re safe!) as long as it’s low fat protein… Indeed meat is the centerpiece of this plan, with veggies only being allowed in the second stage, and very small amounts of fruit thereafter (not an option for us veg folks).

In France the Dukan Diet has become “a staple of French culture,” and the book is set to hit shelves in America next month. It’s already gaining considerable attention, and the book rights sold for a staggering $1.3 million.

The idea that a new diet praising the power of meat consumption may take America by storm the way it has in France is rather upsetting to us. And the fact that it already has glowing celeb endorsements doesn’t settle well with us either. So, let me just point out that followers of the diet have been reported to suffer from “bad breath, constipation, dry mouth, and fatigue.” Very unpleasant side effects indeed!

What do you think of the Dukan Diet?
