Dukan diet and vegetarians

Post  Simon on Sat Apr 24, 2010 3:44 am

People, who know I am on the Dukan diet, have asked me about the suitability of the Dukan diet for vegetarians. I am not a vegetarian myself, although I enjoy a lot of vegetarian foods. I'm not an expert on the Dukan diet either but I know that it is possible for vegetarians to successfully go on high protein / low carb diets. The meat-alternatives available to vegetarians such as tofu, TVP, and (some) Quorn products are all low in carbs. Six of Quorn chicken-style slices has only 2.3g compared to the 60g of carbs in a typical baking potato, or 30g in a bread roll. Any vegetarian who went on a vegetarian version of the Dukan diet would be dramatically cutting down on carbs compared to their previous intake.

I have written a fuller account of my thoughts on Dukan diet for vegetarians on my blog. Very Happy

Hi Simon,

I'm not vegetarian either, and have no experience about Dukan Diet for vegetarians, but according to the book, this diet is based on high proteins and low carbs and fat. As anyone knows, proteins can be massively found in meat. Therefore, in my opinion it's difficult for a vegetarian to do this diet.

Anyway i encourage you to visit the blog of a friend of mine, who is doing a raw food diet. This blog is very well done, with videos and good advices. I'm sure it will be helpful for vegetarian people wanting to have a diet.
To visit it, go to http://www.rawrrr.com/.

I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian on Dukan since the beginning of May. Yes, it's not easy but it can be done. I have accepted that my loss won't be as fast as omnivores but I'm not in a race - I just have to get to the finishing line to win! Very Happy
