Once you finished the Attack Phase the next goal is to achieve your target weight. This is done while on the Cruise Phase – an alternating rhythm of pure protein days and vegetable & protein days.
A healthy weight loss is about two pounds per week. It can seem slow after a successful attack phase, however this speed is better for long term results – for example your skin has time to shrink not leaving empty flabs behind.
Allowed in moderation are carrots and beetroot.
You can now increase the oat bran intake to 2 tablespoons per day.
Another suggested change is increasing from 20 minutes of exercise to 30 minutes of brisk walking per day.
Just because you are allowed vegetables do not eliminate protein produce from a PV day. After all it is called Protein & Vegetables not Pure Vegetables for a reason.
Lastly if you want to get some ideas about what meals you can create checkout this example menu for a week on the cruise phase.
An initial attack phase led by the "pure protein diet" that creates a stunning kick-start, almost as quickly as fasting or powdered protein diets but without their drawbacks.
A consolidation phase when the weight you have achieved is consolidated, a phase designed to prevent the rebound effect that occurs after any rapid weight-loss.
Permanent stabilization based on a simple, easy to follow but indispensable if the weight loss is to be maintained: the Dukan Diet has to be followed one day per week for the rest of your life.
