Dr Pierre Dukan, the French doctor who created the Dukan diet has developed an excellent diet program and one which has 5 million French people embracing it along with royalty, celebrities and millions of others in many countries. The gist of the regime, as they call it in France, is a high protein intake complemented with oat bran pancakes for added fibre.
Now our Wild Weightloss Way turns up the gain on the weight loss program.
Dr Dukan set up a protein only, rapid loss period of 3 to 10 days as the first phase of the Dukan plan.
Then vegetables are introduced on alternate days for the second phase of the program. This could be as short as a few months or up to a year or more, depending on the amount of weight needed to be lost.
The third phase of the Dukan diet introduces carbs and a more conventional food consumption but a protein only Thursday is recommended to keep the body in lean mode.

Protein takes lots of energy to assimilate and losing weight starts on about Day 2 and weight loss will continue for as long as carbs are avoided and energy intake is less than energy expended.
However, the Dukan Diet can be improved significantly with the addition of our Slim’n Sticks® and L.I.F.E. (Lyophilized Indigenous Food Essentials™)® which together, make the Dukan food plan easier to follow while also adding some weight loss enhancements.
By this I mean the flavours in the Slim’n Sticks® are themselves antioxidant which helps to provide energy and boosts free radical control. Other flavours are anti-inflammatory. While most of us associate this characteristic with infections or arthritic conditions, the process of metaflammation (see this previous blog) is a whole body condition which is implicated in the wide range of symptoms resulting from our failing nutritional status.
One particular effect of our being over-weight and living a poor lifestyle is that our red blood cells become sticky and form chains. This depresses their ability to deliver oxygen and take up wastes from our cells and the tiredness we often feel in the mid-afternoon is clear evidence of this. Up your intake of antioxidants and this need for a ‘nanna nap’ disappears.
Other Slim’n Stick® flavours boost your metabolic rate helping to burn calories and accelerate fat loss.
And then we have the piece de resistance – L.I.F.E.®. I could go on for ages here about this high quality product and the phytonutrients it delivers, expanding our food range by 27 different food sources of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and general good-for-you components. Have a look at this site for more on LIFE, the Dukan Diet and the whole Weightloss Way program.
So we have a great core food plan, Slim’n Sticks® to make the food interesting and easy to prepare and LIFE® to make the Dukan diet easy to do and a long term choice for good health.
