The Dukan Diet is a high-protein low-carbohydrate fad diet devised by Pierre Dukan. The diet is not nutritionally sound and it carries risks to kidney and cardiovascular health. The Dukan diet is a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet with four phases, each of which has specific rules. In , Pierre Dukan was a general practitioner in Paris when he was first confronted with a case of obesity.
At the time, being overweight or obese was thought to be best treated by low calorie and small sized meals. Dukan thought of an alternative way to prevent patients from regaining their lost weight. He designed a new approach in 4 phases, including stabilisation and consolidation. After more than 20 years of research Pierre Dukan published his findings in in his book Je ne sais pas maigrir I don't know how to get slimmer which became a best seller. In July , a French court ruled against Dukan in his attempt to sue rival nutritionist Jean-Michel Cohen for libel , after Cohen had criticised his method in the press.
In , Dukan, then aged 72, was banned from practising as a GP in France for eight days for breaching medical ethics by prescribing a diet pill to one of his patients in the s that was later pulled from the market. Pierre Dukan said the paleo diet was a copy of his weight loss strategy. Other similar diets include Ketogenic diet being low carb moderate protein and high fats and Atkins diet being low carb high protein and moderate fats.
Dukan has been promoting his diet since the s; it gained a wider audience after the publication of his book, The Dukan Diet , which has sold more than 7 million copies globally. Channel Four included the diet in the programme Will my crash diet kill me? The American spokesperson for the diet is culinary dietitian Gina Keatley.
The Dukan diet is categorized as a commercial fad diet and carries some risk of causing chronic kidney disease and worsened cardiovascular health. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
