How to eat according to the Dukan system

Ducan Food

Dr. Ducan’s nutrition system has two main goals.

  1. Weight loss due to limited intake of carbohydrates.
  2. Consolidation of the result, by developing a person’s habits of healthy eating.

The basic principles of diet.

  • The main reason for being overweight is eating a lot of refined foods that are high in carbohydrates. People prone to rapid weight gain need to give up foods: sugar, flour, sugary drinks, bananas, grapes. Cereals and pasta can be consumed in strictly limited quantities, no more than twice a week.
  • Protein is the building block of our body. It is quite difficult for our body to digest, a lot of energy is spent on its assimilation. The days when a person eats exclusively protein foods are called an “attack”. At the beginning of the diet, 4-5 days of attack are recommended; in the future, an “attack” should be arranged once a week. On this day you can eat lean meat, poultry, eggs, fish and seafood, low fat dairy products. Meat You can’t fry, you can boil or simmer without oil. The use of a large number of protein foods is very stressful for the kidneys, so the "attack" can not be abused.
  • Bran - the main assistant in the fight against excess weight. They struggle with overeating - absorbing water, bran greatly increase in volume, thereby reducing the feeling of hunger. Reduce the calorie content of food. They must be consumed daily.
  • You can not limit the diet to only one food product and force yourself to starve. Such restrictions lead to psychological discomfort and a breakdown in the diet. You just need to learn how to cook from permitted foods. According to Ducan you can even make a cake!
  • Daily exercise. It is impossible to lose weight sitting on the couch. It’s not necessary to go to the gym, start walking 20-30 minutes a day.

Health depends on proper nutrition. As the saying goes - "we are what we eat." Ducane pancakes are a great way to diversify your diet without harming your health. Serve pancakes with yogurt or sauce, cook with the filling: cottage cheese or minced meattreat yourself to chocolate pancakes. Eating tasty and right at home is easy.
