If you don't have the book, google dukan diet, dukan diet attack and dukan diet cruise. Read a lot. I couldn't get the book straight away either but there is so much information out there from excited and successful Dukan dieters, that you don't have to guess. There are also several groups on Facebook that have a lot more support than this one, with people sharing their experiences every day. We need the support. Not everyone can pay for coaching. I certainly can't, but the diet is working anyway with help from others. Dr Dukan says in his book that the diet has gone beyond him and belongs to the people of the world using it. He truly deserves to make a lot of money for his life's work but for those of us who can't contribute beyond buying a book, there is still lots of peer support out there.
