(Best Syndication News) - On the 'Dr. Oz' TV show today, Dr. Oz explained The Dukan Diet and had a panel of experts to critique the weight loss plan. France has had a popular diet called The Dukan Diet for quite sometime. Now it has reached the Americas with the release of Dr. Pierre Dukan's book “The Dukan Diet: 2 Steps to Lose the Weight, 2 Steps to Keep It Off Forever.”
Dr. Pierre Dukan has sold over 5 million copies of his book worldwide. Kate Middleton was rumored to have turned to The Dukan Diet to lose weight before her wedding to Prince William. The diet is different from the Atkins low carbohydrate diet because he limits the amount of dietary fat and the kinds of meat you can eat.
The diet is based on the low carbohydrate idea in the first two phases, but changes over to a more regular diet in the last two phases. On the Atkins diet you would have to remove or keep the carbs reduced from the diet to keep off the weight. Dr. Dukan's diet includes fat that comes from fat in fish and eggs in the initial phase and limits the fat intake and allows for non-fat dairy products. The Dukan Diet plan in the last phase will let you eat six days of anything you want, but you have to follow the first phase of the diet once a week in order to maintain the weight loss.
