Can the Dukan Diet Do It?

(HealthDay News) No doubt timed to coincide with the collective angst about the upcoming swimsuit season, a best-selling book detailing a trendy new diet made famous by the French is due out in the United States later this month.
Already, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide, according to the Web site of Random House, which is publishing the book here…
Connie Diekman, director of university nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis, calls the Dukan diet "Atkins reincarnated."
A diet with phases injects some fun, she said, "but the very limited nutrient intake makes this a poor diet to choose for healthy weight loss."
Diekman said the limits on carbohydrates aren't supported by science…
"A much better approach," Diekman added, "would be to choose smaller portions of whole grains, vegetables and fruits with lean protein, and low-fat dairy while limiting the amount of calories from added fats and sugars."

According to my view it can be only possible if all dukan diet phases are followed appropriately.
