The Dukan diet combines 68 forms of animal protein and 32 vegetables, which gives you the 'green light' for 100 different foods. This gives you a diet based on what the human species evolved on, and theoretically keeps us feeling happier and healthier.
The Dukan diet uses four phases. By walking through these four phases, a person can shed weight quickly and then make lifestyle changes so you don't gain the weight back. This is the key to my series. Its not about the diet, pretty much all diets "work", its about the changes after the diet. Without a healthy plan for after, you're almost guaranteed to gain it all back. If you are going to go on a diet, it's important to understand, the diet is just to get you kick started in the right direction. The more difficult the diet, the less likely we are to succeed in the long run.
