The Does the Dukan diet for vegetarians work?

La dieta Dukan per vegetariani funziona?

The Dukan diet, which I imagine many of you have tried or at least heard of, is a high-protein diet that is based almost exclusively on the consumption of meat and fish (although we have already seen how there is | ||105una versione vegetariana).

Today, however, I want to tell you about the Dukan diet scheme for vegetarians e capire insieme a voi se questa works.

As you well know, the diet works on an attack basis in which we eat almost exclusively proteins but in a world that is increasingly moving towards vegetarianism and, even, total veganism, not Fr i.e. don't think about thevariant with vegetables only.


The Dukan diet for vegetarians

In the Dukan diet, the one for omnivores let's say, there is already a series of 100 vegetable foods that are considered valid in the attack phase, i.e. the most difficulty of the diet.

Review: the Dukan diet is divided into phases of attack and containment in which other foods that are not proteins are slowly replenished.

But basic, like said before, it is high in protein, so it is a diet that serves to give a shock to the metabolism, not as a lifestyle.

This list of foods is the one that can be eaten even in the phase without carbohydrates and is to be understood without quantity limits:

  • seitan
  • tofu
  • tempeh
  • soy
  • eggs
  • Textured Soy Protein
  • Soy Milk
  • Low Fat Soy Yogurt
  • Light Cheeses
  • Feta Cheese light

It is clear that without legumes,without vegetables and without fruit, the attack phase is good the difficult one, also and above all for vegetarians who get a lot of nourishment right from there. But many of these foods are also rich in carbohydrates, so they are not good for the diet.

In the second phase, the one in which foods are reintegrated, not in the first phase we have this possibility of choosing in which we can eat everything but with clear nos.

All vegetables can be eaten with the exception of:

  • broad beans
  • corn
  • green beans dwarfs
  • peas
  • black salsify

Some foods are tolerated if eaten in small quantities:

  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch or corn starch| ||175
  • 1 cucchiaino di cacao magro
  • 4 tablespoons white or red wine for cooking
  • 3 drops of oil
  • 3 tablespoons skimmed milk powder
  • 1 natural actimel 0% fat
  • 1 teaspoon flaxseed
  • Goji berries
  • 2 yoghurt 0% fruit with sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon of light cooking cream
  • 1 light mozzarella

In the third phase, that of keeping enimento,  we can eat fruit, wholemeal bread, pasta and legumes again and then we have quite a few other foods to add to those of the middle phase:

  • 1 portion of cheese per day (40g per day day)
  • 50 g of wholemeal bread (or 3 wholemeal rusks)
  • 1 fruit (no figs, grapes, bananas, cherries and dried fruit)
  • 1 portions of starchy food per week such as pasta, polenta, couscous, lentils, rice and potatoes
  • 1 party meal per week, where you can eat freely but without an encore


In short, this scheme of the Dukan diet for vegetarians is not bad. Of course the first part, the one with practically nothing to eat or almost is still tough but it works well on our body and nourishes our muscles well, so it's worth the effort. So it seems to work.
