The number-one international best-selling diet book, now available in North America.
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.

Yes, I would and have suggested this audio book to others.
The only down-side of it being in audio format is that the recipes were a very tedious chapter and odd to listen to, so I skipped that one part....
A lifetime of dieting brings me to some of the same conclusions as Dr Dukan.
His plan worked for both my husband and myself. We both lost over 35 lbs and have been able to keep it off.
The book is an invaluable tool and i suggest that people who might go on this plan keep it close at hand for inspiration and reference.
After the first couple of weeks the scales told the story. Dr Dukan's Plan really does work!
Yes, in my experience, this diet works the best,and leads to weight loss. Has good potential to keep it off!
Could listen to it in the car!
Highly recommended. Also like the Dukan Diet web site and online coaching.
I had read the book twice and decided to buy the audio so I could listen while getting ready for work etc. Wow what a difference it made in what I retended from the information.
HIGHLY!!! Myself and a couple of people at work read the book and lost a lot of weight. This is my lifetime solution to weight management. Great book. When I follow the plan strictly I loose about 2-3 pounds a day (and I EAT...just the right foods). LOVE IT and will always keep this book in my electronic library and even have a hard copy on my shelf. I also copied the pages with the "100 foods" I can choose from and keep that in my purse with me when I'm shopping! I have lost over 40 pounds in a fairly short period of time. When I go off (and have cheat days/weeks) I get right back on and drop the weight again. It's easy now that I know how.
Don't pass this book up... it is well worth the money AND THEN SOME!!!!
