Dukan Day 1 meal plan


CRUISE RULES:

Cruise rule: Drink 1.5 litres of water each day
Cruise rule: Drink 1.5 litres of water each day
  • 1-5 pure protein days (with no-fat dairy products just like the Attack phase) interspersed with 1-5 days when quantities of salad and vegetables can be eaten, too.
  • 2 tablespoons of oat bran per day.
  • Take a 30-minute brisk walk daily.
  • Drink 1.5 litres of water each day.

  • You should be aware that the incredible weight loss you enjoyed in the Attack phase will very likely plateau a little when you introduce salad and vegetables back into your diet, but don’t panic!

  • The protein-only diet has a powerful water-loss effect, because a diet rich in meat and dairy products raises the levels of uric acid and urea in the blood.

  • These are toxic by-products of protein breakdown and metabolism, and the body tries to eliminate these by sucking water out of the tissues and pumping it into the kidneys and urinary tract to help it flush out.

  • So some of the weight loss you notice on the scales will be water that has been stagnating in your tissues for a long time. But when you start eating vegetables again, your body will naturally start to retain a little water once more.

  • The secret is to be patient — and to keep the faith! You’re definitely heading in the right direction, and you’ll be losing fat, too.

  • As soon as you switch to a pure protein day, the water expulsion will return and you’ll be able to see quite clearly on the scales exactly how much weight you really are losing.
