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.

Thursdays, but you can use vinegar, pepper, and all other spices to compensate for any lack of flavor. Do Not Take Elevators or Escalators Not taking elevators or escalators is an integral part of my stabilization program. As I have said, if you live in a city of skyscrapers, this instruction is not practical and I recognize that 5 flights of stairs is a reasonable limit, but you should still make the effort to take the stairs as often as you possibly can. Anyone, especially someone who

self-control when eating, experience a slow but inevitable increase in weight. For them the Dukan Diet is ideal. They extract a high level of calories from their food, but the combination of protein Thursdays and regular consumption of oat bran neutralizes this problem. Their lack of willpower or difficulty in maintaining organized eating patterns is balanced by this small sacrifice one day a week Major Obesity Major obesity is a predisposition that often runs in the family, leading to

extraordinary achievement of overcoming dependency on a drug as dangerous as tobacco. Remember, too, that the risk of putting on weight through giving up smoking is a one-time thing and limited to 6 months, so the effort required to fight any weight gain is also limited in time. Once past this period, your metabolism returns to normal, reactions to oral satisfaction diminish, and weight control becomes much easier.
