Dr. Oz covered the Dukan Diet on his TV program where we learned the basics about this weight loss plan. There are four phases:
1. The Attack Phase - Mostly protein, virtually no carbs
2. The Cruise Phase - Phase 1 food plus non-starchy vegetables
3. The Consolidation Phase - Adding back carbs, "celebration" meals and one day protein only
4. The Stabilization Phase - Application of 3 Rules to Live by for life.
Look familiar? I didn't really pay much attention to this diet when it received media coverage or even when Dr. Oz covered it. However, now that I take a look at the basics, it is eerily similar to the Aktins diet, isn't it? I lost a ton of weight years ago on Atkins and kept it off for years. I've been turning to the 17 Day Diet lately, but me thinks that maybe I'll give this one a go for a month and see how it compares. There are similarities to the 17 Day Diet, and some differences that I like.
Anyone tried it?
