The Dukan Diet

The French Atkin's-Like Weight Loss Method- Dukan Diet.

The Dukan Diet has taken France by storm, selling 3.5 million copies in 14 different languages and being hailed as a life-long weight loss answer.

But many Americans have ever heard of it.

Well they will next month when the diet books make their American debut, according to the New York Times. Dr. Pierre Dukan, the diet's creator, sold the North American Rights for $1.3 million up front.

But the diet may be nothing more than a glorified Atkin's impersonator.

According to the New York Times article, the diet has become such a staple of French culture that almost any public figure that loses weight is labeled as a "Dukanniste," including Carole Middleton, the mother of Kate Middleton. There have been rumors that the princess-to-be is also on the diet in preparation for the royal wedding, according to ABC News.

Critics claim it's really nothing more than a fad. Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center, called it the new fad diet for 2011. According to CBS, many critics even believe the diet may be wholly unhealthy and unsustainable.

Now, what do you think of "The Dukan Diet"?
