What the heck is ‘Dukan Diet’? Does it Help Lose Fat?


Obese people would give anything to shed a few pounds. No pun intended, but it is a known fact that an overweight person goes to an extent when he/she’d do anything to lose weight.

The loser approach to weight loss is through medication or extreme surgical methods. We have heard of duodenal surgery and the new “tongue patch” treatment – what’s the point of torturing yourself?

To top it all off, whenever they see those celebs with their perfect physique; the entire weight loss campaign takes a wrong turn. By that, I mean, people who don’t have the first idea about dieting, they start starving themselves. It is a huge misconception, dieting doesn’t mean starving; in fact dieting is just the proper order and selection of food that is supposed to be taken on timely basis.

The Dukan Diet regime can do wonders for you, or maybe not as it depends on your physique and the way your body will respond to it. The program was developed by a French nutritionist (Dr. Dukan) several years ago. Since then, the Dukan Diet program has had amazing results and most of the celebs use it to maintain their physique.
