Well so it seems Dr. Dukan lost in court, base on this BBC article and one in the Independent.
Despite this I still stand by the diet. From my own experience (and that of all my friend and family who have tried it) it only encouraged us all to eat better, and be more choosy about what we put in our mouths.
Like the lorriman's comment in this article says the "norm" does not like change or even a challenge. I'd really like to see proper studies done in the low carb field. Or maybe a bigger crack-down on all the sugar and fat laden sweets as well as read-meals with zero nutrition that are cheap and available everywhere.
Lastly, on a side note, I find it quite amusing how they all these articles mention that eating high protein can increase fat intake. Well, maybe if you are talking in general, but how did they miss the massive part of the Dukan diet that says everything should be LOW FAT!
