I'm currently on the Dukan diet, so protein-only for the next week then protein and salad only. The basis of Dukan, like atkins, is to push your body into a state of Ketosis where it starts to burn fat for energy rather than sugar.

This process can only begin when the Glycogen reserves in the liver have depleted.

Can I supplement with Glucagon to accelerate this process? Are there any risks associated with this?

NB I am not diabetic.

  • Yes but I wasn't on planning to get it through a doctor. Apr 30, 2012 at 14:34
  • You should consult with your doctor for prescription drug advice. We cannot offer medical advice, as specified in the opening section of the faq. Apr 30, 2012 at 21:11
