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 10 years and adopted in 20 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 five 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 three 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.

Listener Opinions

    " It is silly to review a diet book unless you do the diet. If I ever attempt this diet I will come back and rereview this book. It is a modified Atkins diet with the modifications established to make it more enjoyable, easier to follow and more sustainable. I hope that it works because the best reviews come from those that were succesful and the poor reviews seem to come from those that consider themselves vegetarians or violated by diet soda consumption. "

    " Too hard, too much meat "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri Plumhoff | 1/30/2014

    " Reading this now, like many perimenopausal woman 12 or so have crept up on me. I'll keep you posted on my weigh loss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liza | 1/21/2014

    " Easy to use reference book with great pictures and a recipe for each food. Unfortunately only briefly covers the actual program so you need to have his dukan diet book too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 1/20/2014

    " I am hoping to lose weight and keep it off forever by following this well explained diet. Fingers crossed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 1/2/2014

    " This diet has been working for me so far, but I wish that Dukan was more specific about what you can and cannot eat. He lists the foods you can eat to stay thin for life, but I wish I had a list of forbidden foods that are not obvious. Is honey okay? What veggies are secretly starchy? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heidi Kennington | 12/15/2013

    " I was interested in this after seeing it featured on the Dr. Oz show. It's basically similar to the Atkins diet where you eat almost all protein but no fat (unlike Atkins). So, your body starts burning your stored fat rather than the carbs your eating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolin | 12/10/2013

    " A great load of info on an easy diet. I am following the diet as I read it. I like that I don't have to count caleries or points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 10/13/2013

    " Clear concise, easy to follow. 44lbs in 3,5 months. Enough said. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 10/1/2013

    " Overall, this approach did not work for me, however, I know a number of people for whom it was very successful. Regardless, I learned a number of insights that I have incorporated into my diet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan Gropp | 9/19/2013

    " Really makes sense to me. Is working... Cant say much more positive than that. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 8/31/2013

    " This was the first diet book I have ever read. I liked that Dr. Dukan talked about the challenges for this diet as a whole and specific challenges for each phase. He is honest and discusses the psychological factors that play a part in dieting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 5/27/2013

    " It really works, a bit difficult at the beginning, but the weight does come off and the results are amazing and you feel great both at seeing the weight come off and how good you feel when it does. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 7/8/2012

    " Seems healthier than Atkins. Unlike Atkins, this diet also provides a reasonable plan for eating for the rest of your life, once your goal is reached. Might give it a try. "

    " Beetje extreem, maar wel effectief denk ik. Al had ik wel meer een wetenschappelijke opbouw verwacht zoals bij Atkins. Best interessant, maar ik hou het toch bij Weightwatchers :-) "
