The Dukan Diet
Apparently, on May 13, 2010 the next big diet craze will be released in an English version.
Previously only available in France, The Dukan Diet promises forever slimness, if you commit to a strict protein only induction phase and a "protein only" Thursday for the rest of your existence.
According to my "internet research," the French have kept this diet "secret" for years, with only stars like Gisele Bundchen and Jennifer Lopez being privy to it's power.
An article from The Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1267106/The-ultimate-diet-The-French-kept-secret-years-Now-protein-rich-Dukan-Diet-coming-Britain.html)
shows this daily meal plan:
Breakfast: Coffee or tea (with skimmed milk and sweetener if desired), two small non-fat yoghurts or 225g non-fat cottage cheese, and one slice turkey, chicken or low-fat ham, or one boiled egg. snack: one small non-fat yogurt or 115g of non-fat cottage cheese.
Lunch: Crab sticks, chicken leg, poached salmon fillets or pepper steak with egg custard* for pudding. snack: one non-fat yoghurt and a slice of turkey.
Dinner: Prawns sauteed in herbs* and tandoori chicken escalopes* or moules mariniere and boiled beef and no-sugar vanilla creme*. Plus an oatbran pancake
So, is The Dukan Diet just another version of The Atkins Diet??
We won't know until the English version is released on May 13, 2010.
