diet food listDiet Food List, What’s The Dukan Diet?

The diet food list for the Dukan Diet is fairly simple and straightforward. The Dukan Diet is on my top ten list of diets because it is simple and very effective. If I learned one thing while living in Paris for a year it was this, French women don’t play around when it comes to dieting. They know how to do it right and they know how to do it quickly. They lose weight eating nutritious, delicious, filling foods. Sounds good to me.

The Dukan Diet is an effective four step diet. It consists of the following steps:

  • The Attack Phase. Pure protein diet for a short period of time. (2 to 7 days)
  • The Cruise Phase. Pure protein days alternate with proteins and vegetables days. (3 days per lb desired loss)
  • The Consolidation Phase. A transition phase to prevent rebound weight gain. (5 days per lb lost)
  • The Permanent Stabilization Phase. Permanent stabilization of weight loss following three simple rules. (for life)

What’s Cooking?, Dukan Diet Food List

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty. The Dukan diet is fairly restrictive in the diet food list area. But on the up side, you can lose weight quickly on the Dukan Diet food list if you follow it to the letter.  The Dukan Diet also recommends daily exercise. Personally I think that any diet plan that does not recommend daily exercise of some sort is simply irresponsible.

The Attack Phase of the Dukan Diet food list includes the following foods.

  • Beef
  • Veal
  • Buffalo
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Liver
  • Fish
  • Shellfish
  • Poultry
  • Eggs
  • Tofu, Seitan, TSP
  • Nonfat Dairy Products

The Cruise Phase (alternating protein diet with protein and vegetables)of the Dukan Diet food list includes the following foods:

  • All above listed proteins
  • All vegetables except the following: potatoes, corn, dried peas, beans, lentils, avocado, grains are also not allowed including quinoa.
  • limit oils

The Consolidation Phase (transition):

  • add one serving of fruit per day to the previous routine
  • add two servings of whole grain bread per day
  • add one serving of cheese per day
  • add two servings of starchy foods per week (lentils, polenta, quinoa, etc.)
  • fatty meats may be eaten a few times per week
  • two celebration meals per week = party time (whatever you like) within reason
  • one day of pure proteins per week
  • oat bran for added fiber

The Permanent Stabilization Phase

  • Eat what you want for 6 days out of 7, keep consolidation foods as your base
  • keep good habits of program
  • one pure protein day per week for life
  • exercise daily, do not use stairs and escalators walk whenever possible
  • take 3 tablespoons of oat bran per day for life

Conclusion, The Ducan Diet Food List

The Dukan Diet food list is rather simple and straightforward. It is also rather effective. Once you get down the routine of the plan it is easy to follow. And if you enjoy eating meats and other proteins, this diet shouldn’t be hard to follow. As I mentioned before, it is a diet that must be followed strictly in order to have  sustained success.

The Dukan diet also includes some other simple but effective ideas. One of those ideas is that adding salt to your food stimulates your appetite. I have found this idea to be true. If you can enjoy your food without adding salt then I recommend doing so. It can greatly reduce the appetite.

Exercise is also vital to this program. Movement is encouraged and the idea of taking advantage of every day opportunities to move is taught. For example, take the stairs whenever possible. It seems so simple but these little choices each and every day really add up to a lot of movement and calories burned.  Walking is also highly encouraged and also risk free, even for the obese.

I hope that this post will be helpful to anyone interested in learning about the Dukan Diet and the Dukan Diet food list.
