Dr. Pierre Dukan has helped 5 million French women (and men), plus another 5 million in eleven other countries, shed excess pounds and keep them off for good. Now for the first time, dieters in North America can use the four phases of the Dukan Diet - Attack, Cruise, Consolidation and Stabilization - to achieve dramatic weight loss, and then maintain their results forever. And they'll never go hungry or have to count a single calorie. The secret? The power of pure protein.

Baker & Taylor
1 international bestselling diet book coming to North America Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like. Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss Phase one: Attack Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved. Phase Two: Cruise Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight. Phase Three: Consolidation Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced. Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom. Phase Four: Stabilization This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight - provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week. For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success. The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions"--

It is a fad diet. While recommended by my Doctor, I tried to keep an open mind but too many alarm bells were going off. Didn't feel right to me and that is ok. I think with 2 young children in my house that I need to set a good example. I will just eat healthy food, include more protein, and use portion control instead of completely eliminating perfectly good food. According to my doctor there is science behind why it works but I could not see science anywhere.

I started this diet in June of 2012. I lost 25 lbs and have kept it off as of this date-2/19/2014. It really worked for me, and I still adhere to the main premise of eating a high protein low carb diet. However, I have moved on to just trying to eat more cleanly now. Very thankful for the Dukan diet!

Since this book was written by a French doctor I thought it would be nutritionally sound but it's not.This is nothing but a fad diet.

Rumoured to be the diet used by Kate Middleton's sister and mother in the runup to the royal wedding! "The book’s cover proclaims: “The real reason the French stay thin,” a sentiment that was making its way to North America more than a year ago from people who had discovered the original French-language edition, and which cropped up in diet conversations everywhere in the English-speaking part of this continent."
