Anybody know about this diet?

A friend of mine told me yesterday about a diet I have never heard of.
She said women at her job are loosing ton of weight a lot of inches.

Has anyone heard of or tried the The Dukan Diet, by Dr. Pierre Dukan,
from France. I believe.

I Google it, and he has written 2 books. It is a High Protein diet with different phases.


Was just wondering if anybody knew about it!

I have never in my life been on a diet.
Thanks for any info

High Protein Diet will make you lose tons of "water" from your muscles not "Fat".........just be careful, if it a diet that you cannot maintain..........what is the point..........you may lose weight but your body will not thank you and you may end up putting on even more...........

Balance and Portion Control with lots of water.........is key

Thanks for your input, I decided after looking into it, it is not a very good choice as you stated.
I completely agree on the balance and portion control, which I can work on!
Thanks again.

I never tried it! I lost 20 lbs the old fashion way with exercise and cutting my eating. I do eat a lot of protein and cut a lot of my sugar out and eat a snack every 2 hrs.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
