The Dukan Diet is a unique 4-step programme, combining two steps to lose your unwanted weight and two steps to keep it off for good:

Step 1: Attack

For 2-7 days eat as much as you want of 72 protein-rich foods.

Step 2: Cruise

Continue eating the protein-rich foods with the addition of 28 vegetables.

Step 3: Consolidation

Add fruit, bread, cheese and starchy foods, and 2 celebration meals a week, allowing 5 days for every pound lost.

Step 4: Stabilisation

Eat what you like without regaining weight by following 3 simple rules, including the famous 'protein Thursdays'.

Devised by Dr Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight permanently, The Dukan Diet is the culmination of thirty-five years' clinical experience. Without any of the usual marketing hype, The Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by the people who had successfully lost weight following the diet. It is now estimated that the Dukan community numbers over 5 million people in France. Easy to follow with no calorie counting, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines, menu planners and delicious recipes for long term success.

Beyond its immense success in France, The Dukan Diet has been adopted by 20 countries and translated into 10 languages. Many international observers agree that this is the method most likely to put a stop to the world's weight problems. For more information visit www.dukandiet.co.uk.

Get over the 2 day carb withdraw and your mind changes too. Take tylenol or advil at beginning of day and you wont develop a headache. Dont cheat. Also seltzer water is very very helpful. Read full review
