Despite the fact that most dietitians strongly advise against using the Dukan high-protein diet for health reasons, it is still one of the most popular weight loss methods in the world.
The Dukan Diet, also known as “protal”, was created by the French, Pierre Dukan, and is considered a great way to lose weight in a relatively short period of time.
The Dukan diet consists of basically four stages, which are tailored to the individual’s needs, but it must be remembered that this method of losing weight, if used carelessly, can be very dangerous.
1. The first stage, also known as the shock phase, lasts up to a maximum of 10 days. It only eats high-protein products, such as fish, lean meat, eggs and lean dairy products. You can also eat bran in small amounts in the morning to avoid constipation.
2. The second stage, known as the weight loss stage, is the stage which, as the name suggests, lasts until the expected weight is achieved. However, you must not overdo it. During its duration, additionally, you can also eat vegetables every other day.
3. The third stage is the setting time, which consists of about 10 days for each kilogram lost. During it, you can slowly start eating foods such as starch, fruit, or two slices of whole grain bread throughout the day. Small amounts of yellow cheese are also allowed, but you need to eat as much protein as possible once a week (similar to the first step).
4. The fourth stage is the stabilization stage, when the consumption of most products is allowed. Of course, everything within reason, so as not to exceed the daily caloric requirement for a given person. However, do not forget about products containing a lot of protein and reach for them at least once a week.

The Duchess is said to have eaten this way just before marrying Prince William, thanks to which she managed to slim down by as much as two sizes.
