Dukan Diet Phase 2: Cruise Phase
As I mentioned in the first phase, each Dukan phase it’s important, so we will continue with the second one.
Dukan Diet Phase 2: CRUISE
This phase is a mixture between two diets, pure protein foods (like in the Attack phase) and protein combined with vegetables. We spoke about the protein diet during the Attach phase, so we will focus more about the diet of protein combined with vegetables.
Alternation of the protein diet with protein – vegetable diet
Depending on the kilos that you want to lose, can be from 1 with 1 (meaning 1 day protein diet and the next one protein – vegetable diet) till 5 with 5 (meaning 5 days protein diet and the next 5 days protein – vegetable diet).
Let’s do a summary of the alternation of the diets, according with the kilos the must be lost.
- lose weight more than 10 kilos – this persons can try the 5 with 5 days program. Meaning after 5 days of pure protein diet will take 5 days of protein-vegetable diet, and so on. But, for those will work also the 1 with 1 day diet program and will be much easier to take.
- lose weight less than 10 kilos – in this case it is recommended to take 5 with 5 days program. The weight loss will be done much faster.
- lose weight less than 5 kilos – in this case we will go with another program, for those that do not need to lose too much kilos, the 2 with 7 days program, meaning 2 days of pure protein diet and after 7 days of protein-vegetable diet.
- lose weight less than 2 kilos – in this case we will go with the program of 2 with 0, meaning 2 days of pure protein diet (Monday and Thursday) and the rest of the days normal diet, without excesses.
Duration of the Dukan Diet Phase 2
The period of this phase can be different from person to person, depending how much you want to lose weight.
- lose weight more than 20 kilos – you have to take this phase till 20 weeks (almost 5 months),
- lose weight less than 5 kilos – you have to take this phase till 3 weeks,
- lose weight between 5 and 20 – you have to take the phase from 3 till 20 weeks, depending how much you want to lose weight ( to have an idea, it is almost 1 kilo per weeks).
