Product description

The millions of people around the world who have lost weight on the Dukan Diet are evangelical about its effectiveness, yet others condemn it as unhealthy way of eating that can do long-term damage. So which is true? Now you can make your own mind up by reading The Truth About The Dukan Diet which is written by a Spanish doctor who is an expert in researching nutrition and obesity. With no connection to Dr Dukan but with a professional interest in the area, Dr Alvaro Campillo Soto was shocked by the bad science, misinformation and inaccuracies he saw repeated in the media by so-called experts. So incensed was he that he set out to look at the diet scientifically and get to the truth about the claims and counter-claims that were being made. Using a simple question and answer format, Dr Alvaro addresses all the questions people ask about Dukan such as, 'Is it dangerous not to eat fruit for the first two stages of the diet? Does the diet cause cancer? Are there any side effects? Does eating 3 or 4 eggs a day raise cholesterol? Am I going to lose muscle mass by following the diet?' Written in an accessible way but based on the latest scientific knowledge and research from around the world, The Truth About Dukan is a fascinating read for anyone who wants to sort the fact from the fiction and understand why Dukan is such an effective way to lose weight.

Author information

Dr Alvaro Campillo Soto holds a European Doctorate in medicine and surgery and specializes in general and digestive surgery at the Morales Meseguer Hospital in Murcia, Spain. Dr Campillo's interest in obesity relates primarily to his work as part of the "European Obesity Academy" a two year European project (2008-2010) set up by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm (which awards the Nobel prizes). Dr Campillo received an honourable mention in the Barea awards and the Pfizer prize for Clinical excellence. After coming across a TV programme which he felt, following his own experience of the Dukan Diet, lacked scientific rigour and was untruthful in its examination of the diet, Dr Camillo felt he must act to forward a real and honest point of view about the current state of scientific knowledge on ketogenic diets and the Dukan diet. The Truth About Dukan had been published in Spain, France and beyond.
