Diet, developed by Pierre Ducane, is popular not only because of its effectiveness in losing weight and long-term preservation of the results achieved. She is chosen for the opportunity to use various desserts without risk to the figure. These include even candy. Sweets, allowed on the Dukanov diet, cannot be purchased at the store - they are prepared according to special recipes. Dukan sweets can be made only at home. There are several recipes for such delicacies for each of the stages of the diet.
By preparing sweets for consumption while following the Dukan diet, you can experiment by creating your own recipes for treats. It is only important not to violate the principles of the Dukanov diet.
- The Dukan Diet is divided into 4 stages. The first is the toughest, “Attack”. At this stage, you can eat lean foods rich in protein, including eggs, low-fat cottage cheese, milk (including dried), kefir, yogurt, and oat bran. At the second stage, corn starch and a small amount of defatted cocoa (without sugar) are allowed. From the third stage, the menu can include most of the berries and fruits, candied fruits. Later, almost all bans are lifted. Choosing or making a recipe for sweets, it is necessary to check the list of products that are allowed at a particular stage of the Dukanov diet.
- Some foods on the Dukan diet are allowed in limited quantities. When determining how many sweets to eat during the day, consider how many extra foods were used to make them.
- One has to forget about sugar during the observance of the Dukan diet. It is replaced with low-calorie sweeteners. They are available in different forms. For the preparation of sweets it is convenient to use sugar substitutes in the form of powder. If you are using a preformed drug, it must first be kneaded to a powder.
- To make jelly candies, you need a silicone mold - it will be easy to extract frozen confectionies from it without damaging their integrity.
- Gelatin for making sweets needs to be of high quality, otherwise the dessert may have a subtle unpleasant taste. Before preparing the dessert, gelatin is dissolved in cool water and only after swelling it can be heated until completely dissolved. Gelatin can be replaced with agar-agar.
- It is advisable not to use a blender or a mixer for all types of candies according to Ducan. Many of them have a rather dense texture, it is more convenient to mix them with a spoon.
