Dukan Diet Recipes - Starters and Desserts
The Dukan Diet was one of the most popular diet and lifestyle plans of 2010 and as it says on the cover "Five million French People can't be wrong".
This Dukan Diet Recipes - Starters and Desserts hub is one of my five Dukan Diet Recipes hubs.
Dukan Diet Recipes is the capstone hub in which you will find all of the recipes listed.
The other hubs in which the recipes are detailed are
This hub is written to provide recipes for the Dukan Diet to help anyone on the diet or who is thinking about starting Dr Pierre Dukan's highly successful weight loss formula the Dukan Diet. This diet is based around the principles of eating a diet which is low in carbohydrate but high in protein.
If you would like a better understanding of the Dukan diet and lifestyle program you may find my hub about the Dukan Diet useful. You may also find my hub The Pros and Cons of the Dukan Diet of interest.
Please remember that this article and my other articles about the Dukan Diet are written to provide general information and they are not intended nor should they be taken as a recommendation or endorsement of the Dukan Diet. Anyone with medical problems of any nature should see and consult a doctor before embarking on any diet or exercise program and even if you have no known health problems, it is still advisable for you to consult your doctor before you make any major changes to your lifestyle.
This is another area where the Dukan Diet scores really highly as you're only restricted on the types of food you eat rather than the amount of food you eat. This means it is possible to have proper three course meals where you are able to forget you are even on a diet on the days you can eat vegetables as well as protein. This means that you can hold a dinner party without breaking your diet
The recipes to help create your three course meals are listed below. You could of course also use some of these recipes to make yourself a delicious lunch.
