There are many diets out there for you to follow which all promise fantastic results. However it is important to remember that near starvation diets only work in the short term as once you resume eating normally the weight begins to pile back on.
Weight loss should always be sensibly managed to prevent any health problems arising from rapid weight loss.
Always remember to couple exercise with any diet/healthy eating plan to ensure you see the best results. However, do not over-exercise at the beginning as this can cause serious damage to your body. Gradually increase the intensity and duration of exercise as your body becomes fitter and your stamina improves.
The Dukan diet is very popular among the dieting world and many avid dieters have sworn to have seen great weight loss results.
It is a healthy diet plan designed to allow you to effectively lose weight, keep the weight off and change your eating habits.
It is based on a high protein, low fat and carbohydrate diet and allows you to eat as much as you like of a range of healthy foods.
There are four dukan diet phases:
- The attack phase – only protein can be eaten to encourage fast weight loss
- The cruise phase – alternate between eating only protein and protein and vegetables
- The consolidation phase – forbidden foods are allowed to be gradually reintroduced and two not so healthy meals are allowed per week. This stage helps to prevent the rapid weight gain which is usually seen after quick weight loss
- The permanent stabilisation phase – is healthy eating for the rest of your life
The period of each phase depends upon the amount of weight you wish to lose.
You can find out for free the duration of your individual programme and of each phase, however, to qualify for the coaching programme you do have to pay.
The programme includes a personalised weight loss plan and daily instructions surrounding menu options, exercises to follow and motivational tips.
I recommend anyone wanting to lose weight to try this diet plan to change the way they eat forever.
