Additional rules Drink 1.5litres of water per day (plain or carbonated) particularly at mealtimes to help you feel full. However, some people prefer to work to a rhythm of five days of protein followed by five of protein plus vegetables, or, if you have only a little weight to lose, try two days of pure protein (say Mondays and Thursdays) with every other day protein combined with vegetables. Tandoori chicken escalopes (6 servings) 6 chicken breast fillets. Tea, coffee and diet drinks (no more than 1 calorie per glass) can be included in this total. Now you can introduce the following vegetables - raw, steamed, boiled or baked (in foil) - with your meat or fish: artichoke, asparagus, aubergine, broccoli, cabbage (white, red, savoy, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprout), celery/celeriac, chicory, courgette, cucumber, fennel, French beans/ mangetout, leeks, mushrooms, onion, peppers, pumpkin, radish, salad leaves (lettuce/rocket/watercress), sorrel, soya beans, spinach, swede, swiss chard, tomatoes, turnip. In a non-stick frying pan add the shrimps, garlic, parsley and wine.
Having worked with tens of thousands of patients, Dr Dukan believes the crisis point happens when your body mass index (BMI) reaches 28, making managing and controlling your weight more complicated. for now: 1 Lean beef and veal or rabbit, not pork or lamb (trim all fat and avoid ribs as too fatty). Thick courgette soup (6 - 8 servings) 4 large courgettes, washed and peeled.
The Dukan Diet starts with a short, sharp 'attack' phase where you eat nothing but protein - just meat, fish, eggs and no-fat dairy products. Constipation may strike after four days on attack so add a tablespoon of wheat bran flakes to your oat bran. During this phase, eat freely any foods on the following list - eat as much as you want, whenever you want. Eat meat grilled, roasted or boiled and without using butter, oil or cream (not even low-fat versions). Make sure the garlic, ginger, chillies and spices are completely crushed to make a smooth blend.
You can spend just one day here - or as many as ten days if you have a lot of weight to lose - and many people can expect to lose as much as 7lb in five days. You could also 'dry fry' it - rub the surface of a frying pan with a few drops of oil on kitchen paper. Score the chicken so that the yoghurt-spice mixture gets inside the meat and marinate overnight in the fridge.
You may experience bad breath and a dry mouth during this pure protein phase. Lean minced beef can be prepared as burgers or meatballs (mixed with an egg, spices, capers or gherkins) or enjoy frozen beefburgers (if less than 10 per cent fat). The next day cook in a moderate oven - 200c/400F/ Gas 6 - for 20 minutes then brown under the grill before serving.
2 All chicken and turkey (not goose or farmed duck) but remove skin before eating and avoid the outside part of the wings (too fatty).
Non-fat dairy products such as 0per cent yoghurt, fromage frais, quark, cottage cheese, and skimmed milk. Natural ( plain) and flavoured yoghurts (coconut, vanilla, lemon) are allowed without restriction, but non-fat fruit yoghurts (containing fruit puree) should be limited to two a day (or avoided if you want a lightning start to your attack phase). Sweeteners (Canderel, Silverspoon Sweetener) or Stevia (a natural sweetener available from health food stores), vinegar, spices, herbs, garlic, onion, gherkins, pickled onions (as condiments, but not in large quantities), lemon juice (on food, but not to drink), mustard and salt (in moderation), sugar-free natural ketchup in moderation, sugar-free chewing gum (can slow down the mechanical swing towards eating whenever you feel under pressure). This is the workhorse stage where you alternate pure protein days with days when you include a delicious array of unlimited vegetables to your wide selection of meat, fish and no-fat dairy products. The most efficient way to work this stage is to spend one day on the pure protein 'attack' diet (above), and the next on a protein and vegetable diet, switching between the two, one day at a time, until you reach your chosen weight. Yesterday we introduced the Dukan Diet - a revolutionary slimming plan that has taken France by storm. With a ladle carefully spoon out snowball-sized portions of the egg whites and drop them into the hot milk. after turning them over remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate.It promises fast, effective weight loss, followed by an eating plan that ensures you stay slim, while - incredibly - allowing you to enjoy unlimited quantities of real food.

Our size, says Dr Dukan, is largely determined by the number of fat cells (called adipocytes) we are born with. Next cut into strips and gently fry for a few minutes over a moderate heat in a non-stick frying pan that has been lightly oiled (add some oil then wipe with kitchen towel) with a little water in the bottom.
