Worth a try, rapid weight loss eating real food & it's sustainable longterm

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 22/06/11
This is a really different 'diet' book in that it has 4 stages to it. The first to start your weight loss, the second to continue and get to your goal, the third to settle down to your new weight and the fourth is a management plan for the rest of your life.... safe in the knowledge that you can always do a week of the first part again if you've put on a few too many pounds.

I can't speak of my success yet as I've only done 2 days, but my mother in law has lost nearly 2 stone in less than 2 months so that's good going, I'd be happy with that.

In essence this diet advises you to eat until you are full but to eat a high protein diet and there is a list of permitted foods - what surprised me was that you can have onions!! which are quite high in natural sugars. So whilst the diet starts a bit like atkins it seems much healthier and I think it could successfully be followed for a longer time, and without health complications.

The book is nicely written and easy to read, it could also help keep you on track in those first few days. It clearly explains how the body works and reacts to differennt foods and discusses how much weight you could expect to lose and when - which is great for motivation.

The only thing I don't like about the book are the suggested menus, to me they are awful but to others great I am sure. I am not much of a fish lover so this is part of the problem.

If you want to lose weight, with a quick start and eat REAL food then this could be the one for you. In 2 days I am down 3lbs but of course much of this would be water weight.

Good luck to those who try it.

Bought this book as I wanted to lose weight faster than 1-2lbs a week (slimming world a dismal failure), have tried harcombe, read south beach but didnt do it as disillusioned with harcombe (I think cheese was the problem, she doesn't do low fat) .I had heard good things about the dukan diet from a lady who tried it.
So far so good, 4 days in and 5lbs lost, really hard at first, gets better, it is the same principles as the other 2 titles mentioned but considering Pierre is supposed to be a qualified doctor,specializing in nutrition, he doesn't really explain why/how it works (read harcombe for that), perhaps he thinks it's unecessary to bore us with the details, or we wouldn't understand the science. Well, lets hope I don't succumb to the temptation of evil carbs for the next stage, wish me luck.

Try it for a month as you will definately loose weight

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

A friend started the diet a week before I got the book, in 1 week she lost just under 1 stone, safely.... If you do not eat much,there is quite a bit of food to take in at the beginning. Towards the end of the week she had stopped losing weight as quick but she has now started phase 2 with the addition of veg. As a personal trainer, I was amazed at the fat loss in the stomach area so quickly. It is usually the last place it comes off, it seems like a pretty good eating plan, allowing coke as a sugar curb & reprogramming the metabolic rate to burn off the fat due to the way the dukan eating plan is layed out. If nothing else, you should give it a try for a month. You wont be sorry, especially at the cost of the book.

great diet that work

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

the diet was great! lost loads of wieght very quickly but the book has quiet a few chapters before it gets to the diets, you can tell it was writen by a doctor as he uses several chapters to explain how the diet works and the medical reasons why this diet works, before telling you what the diet is. The diet itself is simple to follow and the book leads you step by step, its 4 diets that you need to follow to keep the wieght off. This diet does limt the foods you can eat but not the amounts.
