I recently spent an enjoyable 20 minutes interviewing Celebrity Nutritionist, Simone Gloger with the Dukan Diet Center. She’s very knowledgable about diet and nutrition, as well as weight loss coaching. She’s been with the Dukan Diet Center for about 2 1/2 years and has coached many clients to healthful success with weightloss and maintenance.
The Dukan Diet is a physician-formulated lifestyle weight-loss program developed by French physician, Pierre Dukan. Over the last decade, millions of people around the world have achieved dramatic results and permanent weight loss using Dr. Dukan’s method, harnessing the power of pure protein.
The Dukan Diet consists of 4 phases to help you reach and keep your True Weight for life. The diet discards counting calories, and instead emphasizes lean protein, plentiful amounts of water, daily walking and allows unrestricted amounts of 100 healthy foods. The DukanDiet is designed to help its members overcome common pitfalls and achieve healthy, lifelong weight management.
The first thing one must do is find their True Weight which is a unique formula based on answers to a few short questions. Before beginning The Dukan Diet members calculate their True Weight – a realistic, healthy weight that can be reached and maintained for life- by answering 80 questions that precisely define a personalized program in detail. I’ve often felt the current weight charts did not fit my profile and set unrealistic expectations for me.

The Dukan Diet consists of 4 phases: First is the ATTACK phase, which last from 2-7 days, depending on your True Weight and the amount of weight you intend to lose. During the ATTACK phase, dieters consume only pure protein, and one serving of Oat Bran. This phase gives you the jump start needed for success, and cleans the body of sugars and carbs.
Then you begin the CRUISE phase, which alternates protein-only days with vegetables protein days until you reach your target weight.
During the 3rd phase, the CONSOLIDATION phase, you’ll reintroduce more foods including fruits, bread, and cheese every day, as well as two portions of starches and two celebration meals per week. Simone advised me that this phase usually lasts 5 days for every pound you need to lose.
By the time you reach the final phase, STABILIZATION, your ready to begin life long maintenance by returning to eating whatever you want without regaining weight, by following 3 simple rules – including one protein-only day each with, the habit that keeps the weight off forever.
