The Dukan Diet plan menu may be the best way for you to decide whether this diet is right for you or not. After all, you’re going to be following this diet for weeks so you need to be sure that you’re up for it. That being said, realize that any weight loss requires making some sort of change in your life so don’t expect to be able to eat as you used to with impunity.
The Dukan Diet is a high protein program. In the attack phase of the diet (phase 1), you need to go through several days of nothing but protein. While this can be challenging for someone who likes to eat carbs, it’s only for several days so I believe that it can be done.
If you’re a meat eater, you have lots of options to choose from: beef, veal, chicken, ostrich, fish, seafood, low fat dairy products, and eggs are some of the common sources of protein you can choose from and there are others you can find.
The Dukan Diet Menu may be more challenging for vegetarians as they can’t turn to meat for their protein and most of them abstain from fish and seafood either. Eggs and dairy products seem to be the main available sources of protein for vegetarians and these can be the basis of the menu for you. You can also eat tufo if you like. However, many of the regular plant based protein sources that vegetarians rely on are prohibited so you do need to take this into account. You may need to be very creative when coming up with some menu ideas.
Because plant based protein sources seem to be limited on the Dukan Diet, I don’t think that it’s a suitable diet for vegans as they can’t eat eggs or dairy products. I’m not sure where they’re supposed to get their protein but it may be difficult and expensive for them to go on this program.
You should note that this diet wasn’t made specifically for vegans or vegetarians. Draw your own conclusions.
As long as you can get enough protein from diverse permissible sources and as long as you don’t allow the no carb and low carb weeks to deter you, this is a program that may be for you. However, the final decision is yours. You need to decide whether this is the program for you or not.
