My wife and I have been waiting for Dr. Dukan's "American" version of his cookbook as we've been on his diet for over 6 months and have lost exactly the amount of weight his program predicted. It is nice now to have a cookbook with US measures and ingredients as this diet is wonderful and really pretty easy to follow. We highly recommend the diet and this cookbook to anyone who has been frustrated by the myriad of diets that are out there as this one is successful if followed precisely.

The Dukan diet is the only diet that I have tried so far that has actually worked and that was easy to follow. Fantastic weight loss for minimum effort. I was so excited and couldn't wait until the book came out. I have so far tried several of the recipes and they have all bombed!!! Not one recipe has worked out so far and I have followed them to the letter. The only thing it is useful for is to provide ideas on what to eat, but you will have to experiment and adapt the recipes in order to make them work. The diet, however, is definitely worth following.

Ok, this diet WORKS! I've lost 13 lbs in 18 days. I have allowed myself some things to help me survive (mostly Atkins shakes and bars for some breakfasts or snacks; also, fat-free cheddar and WW string cheese). Without these allowances, I would not be able to stand ONE MORE BITE of meat. However, I have not had a single bite of "off program carbs."

The galettes are great. Use some sugar-free syrup or jelly for a nice treat, make yourself a countdown calendar toward your projected date of reaching your goal (or for me, it's a cruise we've planned), and DIG IN for the long haul. Don't cheat or you'll get out of ketosis and defeat the point of low carb. Any birthday or other holiday will come around again next year. DEVOTE this time to yourself and getting yourself healthy. Next year, you can have the mashed potatoes! That's my advice!

I've only tried a few of the recipes in Dr. Dukan's book, but they were tasty and relatively simple to prepare. Some of the ingredients are a little uncommon, so I stuck with the simpler ones, but there are lots to choose from. Good companion book to his diet book.

The Dukan diet is a worthwhile low-carb, low-fat diet. It has lots is common with Atkins and -- 4 weeks into it -- is resulting in steady weight loss. The diet does allow low/no-fat dairy, which makes it easier to continue long term to shed lots of pounds. Best of all, after the goal weight is attained, the diet provides structure for a long time (5 days per pound lost) so dieters don't just regain the weight.

As a cookbook, most recipes are appealing and tasty. Most do not require specialized products (unlike many Atkins recipes). However, the cookbook would benefit from more-detailed organization. The table of contents is only broken down by major categories such as "poultry." The index does list specific recipes under the main ingredient. However, the cookbook would be easier to use if each recipe title were listed under each category in the table of contents. A searchable diskette would be better still to find recipes that use specific ingredients beyond just the main protein. I'm glad I bought the cookbook and will use it heavily. I just wish it would help me out a little more.

First the good…we are REALLY enjoying the recipes! A co-worker of mine has done this diet with her husband & they were both successful. Based on their success, we decided to give it a go! The first thing I did was purchase this cookbook. For me, Failure to Plan = Planning to Fail.

The day before starting we prepared the Indian Chicken (made in Kabobs), Rosemary & Mint Meatballs, Hardboiled Eggs, Blackened Lime Shrimp (my recipe), Salmon and Cream Cheese Roullades (these were tiny!) and made sure to have Eggwhites and Fat-Free Cream Cheese on deck. I also made a fat-free Yogurt dip for the shrimp and chicken. This way there is ALWAYS something to munch on.

In 3-days I lost 4.4 lbs (even with Hashimoto’s!). If you are wondering if it’s possible to eat pure protein for several days without going off ‘the wagon’..if you plan ahead like we did, it’s very easy!

I work retail part-time and I run around a lot at work and didn’t have a problem with an 8-hour shift and staying on-track. It’s all about your mindset. You are choosing to change your life in this very minute! Another thing I did before starting was make a list of things I wanted to do during the first few days to keep myself busy. It’s funny, when I’m not dieting I don’t think about food all day (and I LOVE to cook!) but when dieting…it’s all I can think about! LOL! I don’t think I’m alone, thus The List! After Day-1 I quit thinking so much about eating and more about ‘doing’! In fact, my energy is off the charts!

On a side note..I thought that it would be best to start this on my days off (which I did) BUT had I gone into work, I would have been too busy to think about my diet. The whole objective during your protein days is to STAY BUSY so you don’t think about food.

This cookbook is a good companion to the Dukan diet as it is difficult to come up with new ways to make meals that are diet-friendly. The only thing I would say is a drawback is that some of the recipes are very similar to one another. It requires a little bit of added creativity to mix things up.
