Vegetarianism and the Dukan Diet

As a reader kindly pointed out to me, I was missing out on a whole group of people who might want to learn about the Dukan Diet in order to get healthy... vegetarians!

Yes, it is possible to be on a high protein diet without eating meat. Here are foods that are allowed for vegetarians throughout the diet from attack phase all the way to the end.

Tofu
There are two types of tofu Dr Dukan talks about in his book: Silken tofu and firm (or extra firm) tofu.
He says in the book that there are tofu dumplings, vegetarian sausages, stir fries and ravioli made using tofu and to watch out that the fat content of these dishes isn't over 8%, but they are allowed however the ravioli or dumplings are not suitable for the first phase of the diet.

Seitan
Also known as vegetable meat. Incredibly rich in protein and almost no fat or cholesterol. Dr Dukan suggests seitan for everyone not just vegetarians. He says it's incredibly healthy and great in stews, prepared on skewers or braised.
If you are curious (As I have just become) you can find Seitan in most Asian food stores.

You can eat as much Tofu or Seitan as your heart desires, until you are full. No measuring or counting. Eat unlimited amounts.

Tempeh and Textured Soy Protein
Dr Dukan suggests that you should eat these sparingly. They are tolerated but not suggested for the diet because of it's high carb content.

Soy or Vegetable Burgers
Dr Dukan states in his book that he only allows vegetarians on the diet to eat pre-made soy or veggie burgers made from two companies: Boca and MorningStar Farms. Once again this is a food item that is tolerated but not suggested for the diet, you cannot eat unlimited of these.

Soy Milk
If you are lactose-intolerant or have a tendency toward high cholesterol Dr Dukan suggests you give soy milk a try. Because of it's high carb content though, you are limited and can only drink 2 glasses of unflavored soy milk per day.

Soy Yogurt
You are permitted two 6-ounce natural soy yogurts with no sugar per day.
