    The recipes and the whimsical watercolors that go along with them are derived from family favorites of the cookbook's author (the award-winning USA Today bestselling author of the Angie Amalfi mysteries) and its illustrator (an award-winning watercolor artist), who happen to be sisters. They hope this unique and easy-to-use cookbook will become a permanent part of any cookbook collection.

    This book contains proven steps and strategies to succeed with the Dukan Diet, guaranteed to not only help you lose weight, but also help you to maintain your True Weight and keep it off for life. In this book, you’ll go through the four phases of the diet: The Attack Phase, The Cruise Phase, The Consolidation Phase and The Stabilization Phase. By working your way through all four phases, you’ll find a whole new way of eating that will stay with you forever. This is not a fad diet. Instead, it is a new way of looking at food that will revolutionize the way you eat and live your life.  
    Created by renowned doctor and nutritionist, Pierre Dukan, the Dukan diet has gone through rigorous testing procedures to make sure that it safe and beneficial for all. It is hugely popular because the guidelines are clear and easy to follow, and the results it produces have been so beneficial to people around the world.  
    What makes the Dukan Diet so popular is its clear and definable phases. They make the process easier and more manageable for individuals to undertake. Too many times people just throw themselves into a weight loss regime and then fail because they become too overwhelmed by everything they cannot eat. Without clear guidelines, it becomes impossible to succeed. In this diet, Pierre Dukan has created a four point phase system. In the first two stages it is all about losing the weight, so results are quick and efficient. The second two stages focus more on maintaining and stabilizing your weight once you have reached this True Weight. So by the end, it becomes more of a lifestyle than a diet, making it easier to manage on a day-to-day basis.
