I was never hungry and it was fast and easy.
I read about the diet in the Sunday Mail in May 2010, started The Attack diet in June, and reached goal weight on The Cruise diet (1 day PP, 1 day PP+veg) in September. Since then I have been on The Consolidation diet and helping others. I should be on The Stabilisation diet by April.
I have found it to be the easiest diet to stick to, providing me, a regular dieter, with my fastest weight loss diet ever. It has worked for me when all my other tried-and-tested diets (e.g. Weight Watchers, Optifast, CSIRO, Slimmm) began to fail. I didn't have cravings like on other very-low-calorie diets. It has also worked for lots of my friends and family, but not all. The allowed food groups do upset some people, but I have never felt better.
It you want to make a start, first, get a realistic prediction of your true weight and how long it will take to get there http://www.dukandiet.co.uk (you need to give ypur email only - no need to buy coaching unless you want to). Print this graph and make a start.
Get a good pair of scales and a tape measure and record your weight and waist measurements.
Consider buying the Dukan book and the Recipe book. I confess I only bought these after I had lost the weight, but they would have been great before hand.
In the mean time read this which has the three links to the equivalent Sunday Mail articles in a UK paper, as well as a blog from a dieter:
1) The ultimate diet:The French have kept it a secret for years. Now the protein rich Dukan Diet is coming to Britain
2) The Dukan Diet: Put your fat cells on a revolutionary weight-loss plan
3) The Dukan Diet: Want to stay slim for ever? Eat whatever you want – except on Thursdays
