The Truth About The Dukan Diet

By Dr Alvaro Campillo Soto

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

50 questions and answers to sort out the fact from the fiction about Dukan

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.

Biographical Notes

Dr Álvaro 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.

Two Roads

An Armful of Babies and a Cup of Tea

Molly Corbally
Authors:
Molly Corbally

For all fans of Call the Midwife - a touching memoir of a young health visitor in postwar England.After serving as a nurse in WW2, Molly Corbally joined the brand new NHS and became one of the first official District Health Visitors, attending to mothers and babies from all walks of life in the picturesque village near Coventry she came to call home. Social work was uncharted territory at the time, and Britain was very much worse for wear - TB, polio, measles and whooping cough were just some of the hazards new babies faced. Social conditions could also add to the problems, at a time when poverty and alcoholism were rife. Armed with only her nursing training, her common sense and a desire to serve, Molly set out to win over a community and provide a new and valuable service in times of great change. As well as the challenges there was also joy and laughter, from the woman who finally had a baby after fifteen years of trying, to the woman who thought she should use marmalade as nappy cream, because the hospital had never taken the label off the jar they were using to store it.Warm, witty and moving, An Armful of Babies is a vivid portrait of rural England in the post-war years, and a testament to an NHS in its own infancy and to what hasn't changed: the bond between parents and their children, and the importance of protecting that.

The No-Grain Diet

Dr Joseph Mercola
Authors:
Dr Joseph Mercola

Forget fats as the biggest dietary sin, the latest scientific evidence now shows that the real culprits in escalating weight gain are grains, starches and sugars. By eliminating grains from your diet, you actually reprogramme your mind and body to release fat and burn it, and as a result the weight you lose is kept off - permanently. This all-new low carbohydrate diet moves on from Dr Atkins, cutting out the unhealthy side-effects of that diet and including a wider range of healthy foods than Atkins or any of his successors.The No Grain diet offers three plans tailored to suit your needs: The booster plan (to ease you more gently into the plan), the core plan (for faster results), and the advanced plan (for those who need to lose a lot of weight fast for health reasons). What's more, it presents a unique psychological technique to combat cravings, bolster your self-belief and help you ride low periods, which usually lead you to break the diet. With delicious recipes and advice on additional factors to further support your new healthy lifestyle, The No Grain Diet is the last diet book you'll ever need.

Hurrah for Gin

Katie Kirby
Authors:
Katie Kirby

This book is not a how-to-guide. It won't tell you how to get your baby to sleep, how to deal with toddler tantrums, how to be a good parent, a cool parent or even a renegade parent. It is a book about parenting that contains absolutely no useful advice whatsoever. Instead it shares beautifully honest anecdotes and illustrations from the parenting frontline that demonstrate it is perfectly possible to love your children with the whole of your heart whilst finding them incredibly irritating at the same time. From pregnancy to starting school, Hurrah For Gin takes you through the exciting, frustrating, infuriating and wonderful whirlwind of parenthood, offering solidarity and a friendly hug after a tough day. Best served with gin.
