Diet Vieux, Nouveau Nom
There's a new fad diet on the horizon, and this one is connected to royalty. The Dukan diet has been popular in Europe for a while now, but its promoters are now bringing it to the US.
The Dukan diet sounds a lot like Atkins and South Beach, in that it involves eating copious amounts of protein but very little carbs. Just the name is new.
Something tells me in the next few months I'll be having to arrange my lunch dates with girlfriends around their "Dukaning." In other words, they'll be no sharing of Paella because someone can't eat the rice.
I've been through this before, I had countless friends on both Atkins and South Beach.
And, you know what? Those friends all regained whatever weight they lost while on those diets.
So here we go again.
