I know i'm not the only one of you girls to hear about this and be trying it out- so along with JLO and the rest, me and my ma' are trying the Dukan Diet!
Here's a brief explanation for any of you who haven't heard:
Our size, says Dr Dukan, is largely determined by the number of fat cells (called adipocytes) we are born with. The more you have, the greater your capacity to gain weight (women, unfortunately, usually have more than men).
The problem is, when you eat badly or too much and gain weight, your adipocytes put on weight too, becoming distended. If this continues, the adipocytes ‘hypertrophy’, or enlarge, and eventually reach the limit of their elasticity.
