How does the Dukan Diet work?

The Dukan Diet is a high protein, low carb diet that is divided in four phases to promote weight loss.

It is important to note that Dukan Diet requires a high level of effort as it is significantly restrictive, particularly in the initial phase.

In the early phases, people are required to maintain an extremely low carb diet, similar to the keto diet.

The Dukan Diet allows certain restrictions and dietary preferences, like gluten-free or dairy-free eating.

The first phase is the Attack phase (1–7 days) where you eat unlimited lean protein.

In the second Cruise phase (1–12 months), start with alternate lean protein and non-starchy veggies.

Consolidation phase includes unlimited lean protein and veggies along with some carbs and fats.

In the indefinite stabilization phase, you are required to follow the ongoing guidelines but can ease the rules.
