The revolutionary weight-loss plan that has taken Europe by storm is poised to become the North American diet book of the decade. Dr. Pierre Dukan has helped 5 million French women (and men), plus another 5 million in eleven other countries, shed excess pounds and keep them off for good. Now for the first time, dieters in North America can use the four phases of the Dukan Diet - Attack, Cruise, Consolidation and Stabilization - to achieve dramatic weight loss, and then maintain their results forever. And they'll never go hungry or have to count a single calorie. The secret? The power of pure protein.
