This diet is amazing (so far). I have just finished my fourth week and am down 14.2 pounds. The book was very informative, & worth reading before starting this diet. The only criticism is some of the foods aren't translated into English the best, so it takes some research to know what they mean. I have lost virtually all cravings for carbs & have been able to fit this way of eating into my everyday diet with no hiccups. It has changed the way I look at food, my portions are more controlled (despite being able to eat unlimited!), and this is coming from someone with an addiction to food. I would recommend this to anyone looking to lose weight.

This guy seems to know what he is talking about. I've been on this diet for about three weeks and have lost 10 pounds already and my husband 25 and he cheats. I'm not saying that it is always easy but I am coming up with different ways to prepare meals and work with low fat yogurt to make sauces and such. I highly recommend it.

Purchased this book (Easy read)and completed my first week. Down 6lbs in 7 days. Easy to follow with easy to understand methods/explanations behind the diet. Recipes, sample menus, 100 foods to follow. Simple book to read and best kept on hand to refer to throughout the phases.

Like any diet, it has its pro's and con's. Sure, you won't like every recipe or food there, but there is enough leadway to make it into something you can enjoy with a little imagination. Really like that it is over 4 stages (approx 2 years) to establish the lifestyle change. Great support group on Facebook for motivation. Best of all is the cost - groceries! Eating healthier is more expensive, especially when following a predominantly protein diet, but you are not paying for supplements or unnecessary fees.

I bought this book a year ago and after reading the book first and going out and getting the necessary food items, then started it in earnest. I did a week of pure protein and then started on the 2nd phase which alternates pure protein days with protein and veggie days. To me the weight loss seemed like magic. every day I could step on the scale and it would show weight loss. This is the kind of motivation a dieter needs. I only had 27 lbs. to lose and by some time in April I had reached that.

Many people whine and complain that this diet can't be followed. To me it is an eater's dream! You can have tenderloin steak and an egg for breakfast if you want. Baked chicken, all the fish you want etc. etc. But it is not extreme like the Atkins diet and everything has to be very low or no fat. I ate a lot of no fat Greek yogurt and dairy products and there are many veggies to choose from. Once you get used to no carbs, they are not hard to resist. I cooked and baked normal meals for hubby with no desire to eat them. If you are dieting you have to expect to have some restrictions or it wouldn't be a diet! and it is only a week or less that you eat only lean protein, then you get carbs in the veggies.

It's a year now and I maintained my weight right thru to the fall. Since then I got a bit slack and with Christmas too I let a few pounds return. So I am just going to start into it again and drop them before I gain more. I know I can do it since I did it last time. Once you lose the weight you need to follow his maintenance plan or they will come back on over time.

So far so good. I am about 3 weeks in and have lost about 14lbs. This is the first diet I have ever been on where I was honestly not hungry. This makes sticking with it much easier indeed! I can honestly say I feel good, and I have not lost my motivation. Dr. Dukan describes each step in detail, this is really a black and white diet (I don't do well with gray). I am on step 2 of loss, so still have a ways to go. But for the price of the book it really is worth a try. It is alot cheaper than the weight loss "membership" costs of some of the "big guns" in weight loss. And it balances out to a healthy eating program for the rest of your days ~ we will see how that plays out;) Good Luck!

I bought this book in December 2011 as a Christmas gift to myself, so I am just finishing my 5th month following the Dukan diet, and I have lost 40 lbs - my target weight! I could not be happier. The book is extremely easy to follow, and the diet sets out the rules and all you need to do is follow them. For me, this works. I need hard and fast rules - none of "don't eat much of this" or "only eat a little of that." That doesn't work for me - I'd just eat it ALL. Also, I'm not good with counting points or calories all day long (although, I accept that some thrive on that system.) You just have to know how YOU function best, and choose the diet that fits your lifestyle.

With Dukan, I know what I can eat and when, and I was NEVER hungry! I got rid of everything else in the cupboard to avoid temptation (and my very supportive skinny husband kept his granola bars, cookies, snacks etc. safely hidden away.) Then, eating as much as I want from the lists given, the pounds dropped off!

The book gives reasons for why the diet works, how the proteins help you lose the weight, and a lot of other guidance in a clear easily-understood way. I didn't really use many of the recipes included, but they're there if you feel adventurous. If you are serious about really wanting to lose weight, then give this a try.

Also, my blood pressure is back to normal, plus my glucose levels!!!

Go for it, what have you got to lose????
