Dukan Diet – Is It Really A Fairy Tale?
The Dukan diet was founded by Doctor Pierre Dukan. It was originally thought that the man was a fairy godmother in disguise when celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Gisele Bundchen – and Carole Middleton all started to use the regime to slim down and get into shape.
Recently, though it’s been in the news for all the wrong reasons. In fact, controversy surrounding the Dukan diet is afire. It is now thought that the diet can be a fairy tale in reverse! Apparently, according to Jean Michel Cohen, a nutritionist – the diet can leave dieters fatter then when they started out!
It was reported not long back that even the duchess of Kent bought into the ‘fairy tale’, using the diet to help her slim down for a grand appearance at the ‘royal wedding’. The regime is protein rich, and has become a popular diet around the world. Jean Michael Cohen, the French nutritionist that sparked the cause for concern is now being sued for libel by Pierre Dukan!
He claims that the diet promotes poor health, and the side effects of slimming with the diet can make users prone to destruction, and leave them with extremely serious health problems such as breast problems and a very rapid increase in cholesterol levels.
The Dukan diet has 20 books released for sale, and they have been translated into 14 different languages which should help showcase just how popular the diet became in a short space of time. There have literally been millions of copies of the books sold. On Tuesday, Dukan took his diet critic to court to sue for a small sum of just thirteen thousand Euros.
The Dukan diet founders lawyer, Sebastian Dufay said that they weren’t going to settle until the diet has been cleared. It is certainly not a danger to the French , and Dr. Dukan wants the allegations wiped up . The doctor doesn’t want fame he just wants to help people who have battled with the bulge, slim down and be able to get the figure that they have always wanted. He fully understands how awful it is to be overweight, and designed the diet in an attempt to help people. Let’s hope that the controversy is settled soon.
After all, there’s always a certain element of risk associated to any new diet. It just depends on the person that steps into the regime and how they can make sure that their diet is accompanied by a fitness plan too. You can’t just expect to slim down by taking care of the food side of things, but neglecting healthy sport and exercise. Nothing in life comes for free – and before starting any diet you should visit your doctor for a full check up and medical advice.
The only fairy tales are the ones that we make, and to live happily, you need to be healthy too. Perhaps you should wait before picking up a copy of the Dukan diet though!
