Dukan too high in Carbs?
paperiniko wrote:
maybe the problem is that you do not eat enough carbs not the other way around.
It might help to vary diet composition and calories intake to speed up metabolism. Carbs calories, especially those coming from fruit, veggies and whole grains, are no worse than protein's unless one has some type of intolerance to specific foods.

There are virtually no carbs allowed during Dukan Attack and very few during Dukan Cruise - mostly low-starch, low-fructose vegetables.
I agree that eventually, one will go back to eating the good carbs - during the Consolidation and Stabilization phases of Dukan. The original post was posing a question about Dukan: are there perhaps too many grams of carbs alloed in Dukan (presumably Attack)? The answer is simply "no". Anyone who says otherwise needs to read the book to convince themselves.

Going to Succeed This Time!
I could not lose any significant amount of weight until I tried the Dukan diet. Two months and 25 pounds lost later I'm finally on track with another 25 pounds to go.

Dukan too high in Carbs?
During the Dukan Attack there are really no carbs or fat. You should use only one spoonful of oat bran. "Low fat" should be replaced by "Fat free" everywhere. Eggs are fine but egg whites are better. You must drink at least 1.5L of sodium free water. No salt, if you can...
Everyone loses weight on Dukan Attack if they follow it.
Please, buy the book and don't play it by ear...

Protein bars
I have not found anything compatible with the Attack phase. Perhaps, it's business opportunity for an enterprising company.
I decided to snack on fat free plain yogurt instead. You can also snack on a piece of turkey breast, a small oat bran pancake (i.e. egg whites, oat bran, fat free milk, flavor), a bit of fat free cottage cheese.

Warning about Dukan Online Coaching Program....
Dukan works for me: fish, file mignon, fat-free Greek yogurt and lost of spices. I'm *never* hungry but I eat regularly to keep my metabolism going. I like fat free cottage cheese and I'm going to try even fat free sour cream.
Not all fat-free product are created equal, I agree. Those that add bulk form pectin are fine, though.
The scale says this diet works for me as well.
