Please buy this book if you want some decent ideas for main meals. Definately don't buy this book if you're missing sweet desserts/puddingS because you won't find a decent recipe apart from the custards and those you can find in the Dukan Diet book!!!! Disappointing isn't the word but heyho! It was pudding love that got me into this mess but it won't be Dukan puds that get me out of it! However 4 and a half stone off since 2nd June shows that the basic diet works so - WHO NEEDS PUDDING? NOT ME! :)

The diet maybe good , but the approach in the book is rather long winded, rather than getting down to the salient points of the diet . Would have like the plan to be laid out in a simpler and briefer version.

I have been on this diet for 3 weeks.
The first phase made me loose about 4 kilos, but the second phase goes slowly.
After a while one starts missing fruit and I am worried about vitamin C levels.

Loads of interesting recipes to help alieviate boardom while doing the dukan diet. I have to say that there were some which took more effort than they were worth.

The reviews led me to expect a more interesting book. It's OK but unexpectedly dull and very few recipes tempt me to try them. I don't doubt that it works as a diet book,but it is not particularly inspiring.

This is a diet book that fully covers everything you need to know.
It doesnt miss anything out. But its difficult to follow.

This is a great diet in that you will definitely lose weight pretty quickly and fairly easily (if you stick to the rules). It's hard for the first week, but you get used to it and it's really motivating to see the weight drop off each week. However this is a very dull, repetitive and uninspiring recipe book, with no pictures. For example, baked chicken with courgettes, baked chicken with peppers, baked chicken with herbs, baked chicken with spices etc etc. I find I can use or adapt much better and tastier recipes using the Hairy Bikers Diet Book or the Good Food Healthy Recipes app.

Some of the recipes in here are already in the Dukan Diet book, and of the ones that are not, a few are quite unappetising. There's a limit to the amount of fat reduction that works, in some recipes. Some nil-fat alternatives to oil, in mayonnaise or salad dressings, create a texture and aftertaste which is really rather unpleasant. And the substitute sugars can also leave a nasty taste in your mouth.

Other recipes are quite clever and work well. I'm hyper-critical as I'm a bit of a foodie, which is why I have a weight problem in the first place. I think this book, as a separate publication to the diet book, should maybe have opted for low-fat, rather than no-fat cooking methods, assuming that the reader has already followed the Diet book and reached their chosen weight, and now needs simply to 'live a little' without putting the weight back on.

Verdict - It's OK, but it won't have pride of place in my cookery book library.

I ordered this to help with the diet, but unfortunately didn't like how the recipes turned out. Plus, most of the pudding dishes use raw egg - which I can't eat. All in all, I have to say that I've succeeded on the diet without the help of this book...

I tried the diet but felt I wanted to extend via this book the variety of meals I could cook on the limited items of food I was entitled to eat. The recipe book proved to be ok in that respect but I found I had to stop the diet as it didn't suit me.
