The rumors have been swirling for a while with regards to Kate Middleton and her weight, in preparation for her upcoming spring wedding ceremony. The tabloids have been reporting that Kate has followed the Dukan Diet, but the actual devotee to Dukan is Kate’s mom, Carole.
The elder Middleton, who is employed as a party planner, has been following the strict diet, which consists of several phases of no carb/low carb cycling since October. In the first four days, she reported to the UK’s Sunday Times that she had already lost four pounds.
The French based diet has been a celebrity favorite and has been said to be the reason both J-Lo and Gisele Bundchen were able to bounce back from their pregnancies quickly. The protein based diet uses four cycles, called Attack, Weight Loss, Stabilization and Cruise. At first a dieter will eliminate all carbohydrates, and then slowly phase them back in following a prescribed pattern.
