The Dukan Diet


... is a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet based on four phases. The fi rst phase focuses on protein-rich foods like chicken, turkey, eggs and fi sh, with some vegetables and carbohydrates gradually introduced over the following phases. The diet is easy to follow and you can lose weight quickly. However, side effects including


tiredness, nausea and constipation are common at the start of the diet.


Dilemma


The 5:2 diet


... is based on intermittent fasting, where you eat normally for fi ve days a week and fast on the other two. Sticking to an eating regimen for two days per week rather than seven is easier, so you are more likely to adhere to the plan for a longer time and persevere with losing weight. However, the non- restricted days do not mean you can feast on whatever you like! Healthy food choices and physical activity are still necessary.


The Atkins diet ... is another low-carb, high-protein weight loss plan with


plenty of meat, seafood, eggs and some vegetables on the menu. Positively, the Atkins diet encourages people to cut out most processed carbohydrates and alcohol, however, initial side effects include tiredness, nausea and constipation.
