How Does It Help To Lose Weight Drastically?

The theory of the Dukan Diet comes down to the body itself burning the accumulated fat by limiting the intake of carbs. The combination of consuming protein along with fat without carbohydrates helps to do so. With the supplied proteins and fats, the body slowly finishes off the carbs for energy production and moves on to the extra fat.

Then, the stored fat burns and is utilised through the process of ‘ketosis’. This can over time reduce the extra fat molecules deposited in the body. Hence, helps to lose body weight drastically. Would you be willing to try this method and lose weight over a short period of time?
