Dukan diet: Eat as much as you want and lose weight?

The United States knows how it’s getting fit for summer: The Dukan Diet. Even though Dr. Pierre Dukan’s book on how to eat as much as you want and lose weight won’t debut in the United States until next month, it looks like chubby Americans have made up their minds.

But wait, the hype almost sounds too good to be true. It’s easy to automatically write off a diet that’s talked about this much. It must be a fad. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, right? But let’s get the details before we dismiss such a popular, and possibly healthy, idea. Who knows, swimsuit season in overweight America could turn out positive this summer.

The Dukan Diet is organized into phases like the South Beach Diet, and it’s high is protein just like the Atkins Diet. And what makes this diet supposedly better than the rest? There’s no calorie counting, and the book promises life-long results.

So I can eat as much as I want, and I don’t have to worry about gaining my weight back years after I reach my weight goal. I say this diet is worth a try.
