The Dukan diet is a method in 4 phases with the aim of returning to a diet based on natural foods. A diet for weight loss can sometimes be hazardous according to the method advocated. But in the case plan Dukan diet is effective and natural. It is very well structured and divided into a progressive course in 4 stages: Regime Dukan # 1 - Phase Attack Regime Dukan # 2 - Phase Alternative Regime Dukan #: 3 - Consolidation Phase Regime Dukan #: 4 - Stabilization Phase The attack phase of Dukan diet is to eat only animal protein for 5 to 10 days. This means eating fatty fish raw or cooked seafood, lean meats like veal, poultry (except ducks). To make arrangements under the regime Dukan, the 2nd step is to integrate raw vegetables or cooked food supplements in Phase 1. During this 2nd phase of the scheme Dukan must alternate days with animal protein and only days with animal protein and vegetables until the ideal weight. Be careful when talking about weight, it does not just mean the number on the scales but also the body mass index of an indicator that shows whether you are overweight. Once you successfully reach your ideal weight, it goes to the 3rd stage of the plan to consolidate Dukan. For this there are 10 days lost per kg. So if you have lost 2 pounds, the stabilization phase lasts 20 days. The meals include foods allowed in Phase 1 and 2 you can add 1 serving of fruit and 2 slices of bread (wholemeal bread only) each day. You also take up to 2 servings of starchy but a week. Caution is essential in 1 day each week where you eat only animal protein (feed phase 1). You can also allow normal 2 meals per week. Finally the last step plan Dukan, stabilization. You can eat normally, but keep the habit of having only 1 day with animal protein (again the list of foods allowed in step 1).
