Overview

What is The Dukan Diet? The Dukan Diet (also called the Dukan method) is considered a high-protein diet that involves eating as much food as desired from an approved list while following a schedule for these foods. Only protein is allowed in the early phase with addition of low starch vegetables in the second phase. These phases are followed until the dieter reaches their ideal weight. This diet is made to follow the eating style of primitive man back when humans were hunters/gatherers. The key to this diet is that it isn't about counting calories, instead, it is using protein as a weight-loss powerhouse. Protein is filling and takes time to digest.

What is The Paleo Diet? Learning what to eat and the foods to avoid are the first steps in following this diet, which will be explored in detail later in this book. The basic guidelines are to pay attention to the vitamins and nutrients, amount of protein, fiber and potassium you are actually putting into your body. A daily diet should include up to 35% protein, fresh vegetables and fruits over carbohydrates, increasing fiber and potassium and lowering sodium levels. This diet is based on what hunter-gathers ate, including limitless fresh veggies and fruits. Another important component is whether the food you consume is acid-producing or alkaline-yielding. Constant high levels of acid from meat, fish, grains and dairy lead to creating an imbalance in your digestive system, which leads to inflammation throughout your body. Prolonged inflammation can lead to nutrient deficiencies and major life-changing diseases, including cancer. Fruits and vegetables are alkaline foods and help balance the acid levels.
