My Dukan story...


I was a 308 pound man and really was in good shape for someone 100+ pounds overweight. However my blood pressure was borderline hypertension. My 60th birthday was only a couple of months away and I noticed that all the men that lived a long fruitful life, like into their 90's, were fit and trim. Most of all the fat guys died young due to complications from obesity. After all, I had a BMI of 38.6, so I made a committment to my wife and children and also to my friends that I was going to shed the excess weight I was carrying around. This was in November of 2010, I had never heard of The Dukan Diet at that time so I just struggled counting calories and did ok for a couple of months. I read a blog about this new French diet by Marshal Brain and I was impressed. The diet made a lot of sense to me so I researched it and became a Dukanian. I bought the book the first day it came out in the U.S. because it was working for me and wanted to know everything about it.


I weighed 308 when I started dieting but stalled out at 275. I then discovered Dr. Dukan** and it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I started the Consolidation phase which I will be in for 500 days and look forward to permanently stabilizing my True Weight*** for the rest of my life. I really like how Dr. Dukan doesn't leave me because I have reached my True Weight. You can read about what inspired Sam here.


  • My favorite support Dukan food****: Chicken curry
  • My Dukan treat: Sugar Free Jello
  • My favorite form of exercise: Walking
  • The nicest compliment I've been paid: My wife can't keep her hands off of me,she says I turn her on. It has not always been that way.
  • What keeps me going: Everything is better 100 pounds thinner, blood pressure much improved.
  • The advice I'd give to other "Dukanians": Try not to bastardize the diet, stay with the plan as prescribed by Dr. Dukan, it really works!
