Dukan Diet Guidelines

The nutritional staircase contains educational, visual weight-loss guidelines and was designed by Pierre Dukan in 2012 to help you maintain your weight. It allows you to eat a variety of foods that are categorized as vital to your health versus just for enjoyment. It illustrates an express version of Dukan Diet rules - a 7 day diet - for those who need to lose less than 10 lbs.

The basic principles of weight management

    1. Maintain your weight by adopting a new way of eating:

    You can easily see which foods are most important to maintain your weight while staying healthy. The first 2 steps make up the Dukan Diet list of 100 foods you can eat in unlimited quantities.

    2. Follow the “Express Dukan Diet”:

    The Dukan Diet can also be applied to small weight loss. You can lose 4 to 9 lbs. in 7 days. You start from the bottom step of Pure Proteins (1 = day 1), adding oat bran and shirataki, then progressively add the food group from the next step. Finally, after 7 days, you can start eating normally and include physical activity to lose weight permanently.

3. Guidelines of Dukan Diet Express:

At this point, you have reached the top of the stairs with a new way of eating a nutritionally balanced diet. You may regain weight if you eat foods that are not included in the staircase. Use Dukan cooking to stay happy while following the Dukan Diet guidelines.
