Pierre Ducane believes that the human body has a certain number of cells that accumulate fat. Those people who have a lot of similar cells are prone to obesity. Indeed, when dividing these substances, the layer of fatty tissue grows exponentially. Therefore, it is important to prevent the ingestion of “building material” for these tissues.
Reducing calories, limiting the amount of eaten and mono-diets - a useless technique!
Ducan is of the opinion that by eating low-calorie food, you can not be safe from excess pounds. This technique gives a temporary result. Extra pounds will come back sooner or later.
And even more so, in his opinion, mono-diets are ineffective. The use of similar products for a long time plunges the body into a state of deep stress. A restriction in the amount of food eaten or a meal strictly according to a certain schedule causes aggression in a person.
According to the French nutritionist, you need to eat as much as you want, and then when you want. Just a set of products should be correctly selected. So before you sit on Ducan's diet , you need to remove from the house all that contributes to the saturation of cells with fat.
Long live bran and physical activity!
Pierre Ducane believes that not a day should go without bran. After all, they are hygroscopic, therefore they absorb moisture in huge volumes. Once in the stomach, bran swells and gives a feeling of satiety. Moving along the intestines, they clean it from the deposits of undigested food. It is for these reasons that the bran dominates the Ducan diet.
Upon reaching the level of “incombustible kilograms,” the French nutritionist recommends that you often walk in the fresh air, squat and do exercises to strengthen the abdominal press.
Stages of the Ducan diet
In the first five days there is an active "attack" on excess weight. Further, for several months, the process of weight reduction continues until the desired result is achieved. After that, success is consolidated. The duration of this stage is individual. 10 days are allotted for fixing each previously dropped kilogram. And finally, the achieved result is stabilized, i.e. becomes the norm.
Naturally, at each stage only certain foods are allowed to be consumed. So, for example, during the “attack” you can only eat high-protein foods: eggs, cheese, milk, fish, shrimp, mussels. The structure of such food is complex, because the body needs a lot of energy to digest it. You can get them only by burning the accumulated fat reserves.
At the second stage, the Dukan diet is replenished with vegetables. The exception is corn, legumes, potatoes. Proteins must be alternated with carbohydrates, i.e. 3-5 days to eat meat, fish and similar products, and then 3-5 days to eat vegetable dishes.
At the third stage, it is allowed to introduce pasta, potatoes, bread, rice, fruits, vegetable oil, honey into the diet. An exception is made for grapes and bananas. At the last stage, you can eat almost everything. However, once a week you should remember about “protein days” and all the time to actively use bran, walk more.
Ducan's diet has been praised by many people and nutritionists. Since it gives a real weight loss. True, it requires consistency and patience from the patient.
