Kate Middleton Lost Too Much Weight, According to Dukan Diet Founder
The famous Dukan diet has been tried and tested by many, including many famous celebrities and even the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. The duchess made use of the famous diet plan before her marriage to Prince William took place in 2011, during the time when she was still Kate Middleton. The founder of the Dukan diet, Pierre Dukan himself, thought the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton, took the diet plan too far. The French nutritionist went on to say:
“I think she (Catherine Middleton) lost too much. At the beginning she had good cheeks. Now, she has no cheeks.”
The Dukan diet was later adopted and tried by almost everyone in the Duchess’s family and resulted in fast weight loss, according to sources. The Duchess of Cambridge notably did lose a lot of pounds before she said her vows standing next to Prince William.
The Dukan Diet
The Dukan diet is a famous diet plan and has been used by many famous celebrities, such as Jennifer Lopez. Generally, the diet consists of four phases:
The “Attack” Phase: This is the first stage of the Dukan diet plan and requires you to refrain from consuming fruits or vegetables. At this stage, you are expected to stock up on protein only.
The “Cruise” Phase: The second phase of the diet brings in the fruits and vegetables, but only on specific days throughout the week.
The “Consolidation” Phase: The third phase of the Dukan diet introduces carbohydrates as well as two different meals that are high in calories, such as wine, appetizers, or desserts.
Pierre Dukan—founder of the Dukan diet—also stated that it was all right for Kate Middleton, also known as Catherine Middleton, to continue with the diet even while she is pregnant with her second child. The diet, according to Dukan, is perfectly healthy even though Alissa Rumsey, New York City-based nutritionist, commented on the diet plan by saying that it is not nourishing enough. She further explained the reason behind her comment:
”Anything that cuts out food groups automatically raises alarm bells for me. You’re missing out on a whole variety of nutrients.”
According to Rumsey, the Dukan diet leads to muscle loss, which is the reason why weight is lost successfully at a high pace. Rumsey further stated that the Dukan diet might even end up damaging the kidneys due to the fact they are required to work harder in order to digest the protein, which may even lead to ketosis.
However, Kate Middleton is not the only celebrity devoted to the diet plan. Other celebrities, including Gisele Bundchen and Jennifer Lopez, have seen impressive results as well.
