Dukan diet for vegetarians

Vegan diet and Dukan method

The Dukan diet, especially in the attack phase, is a high protein diet. Therefore, it seems not to be an appropriate diet for vegetarians. But it is not the opposite, if you are vegan and you want to lose weight, Dukan found a way to adapt to your tastes and needs.

While there are different types of vegetarian (pure vegetarians, vegetarians who eat fish and eggs, or people who are lacto-ovo-vegetarians), the Dukan method was adapted to this type of diet, achieving a special vegan diet.

The most difficult phase to adapt is the attack phase, since at this stage it is necessary to consume only foods rich in proteins. For this, especially if you are pure vegan, you can replace animal proteins with plant proteins.
