Dukan Phase 1 – Attack Phase Recipes

The first phase of the Dukan Diet Plan is meant to shock the body, though not for an extended period of time. The dieter eats a diet consisting of pure protein. Eggs, fish, poultry, fat-free dairy products, and certain meats will make up the consumed foods for a 5-10 day period. No other foods, including vegetables, are allowed. In this stage, it’s not uncommon for an individual to lose up to 8 lbs.

THE ATTACK PHASE 
Dr Dukan says this initial short, sharp shock stage of the diet, which your FREE recipe cards cover, is so effective because it restricts the body to protein-only foods. 

Proteins are dense foods that pass slowly through the digestive system. As they are metabolised, chemicals called ketones are produced, making you feel full, so you're less likely to have the cravings that jeopardise your weight loss. 
Proteins are low in calories compared with fats and carbohydrates, and their complex structure means you burn more calories processing proteins than you do any other food. The rules of the Attack phase are simple. 
Drink two litres of water a day, walk for 20 minutes and avoid butter and oil. 

Eat as much as you want, whenever you want of any foods on the following list. Anything not on the list is forbidden... 

  1. Lean beef, veal or rabbit, but not pork or lamb. Trim all fat and avoid fatty cuts. Eat meat grilled, roasted or boiled without butter, oil or cream, or ‘dry fried’ after rubbing surface of a frying pan with a few drops of vegetable oil on kitchen paper. Lean minced beef can be prepared as burgers or meatballs.
  2. Chicken and turkey (skin removed).
  3. Specifically branded low-fat ham (cut any rind off) and dried beef (bresaola).
  4. Liver (beef or chicken).
  5. All fish — white, oily, fresh, frozen, dried, smoked or canned (in water or brine).
  6. All shellfish.
  7. Up to two eggs a day. Stick to 3-4 yolks per week if you have high cholesterol, but the white can be eaten without restriction.
  8. Non-fat dairy products, such as 0 per cent yoghurt, cottage cheese and skimmed milk. Natural (plain) and flavoured yoghurts (coconut, vanilla, lemon) are allowed without restriction, but non-fat fruit yoghurts (which contain fruit puree) should be restricted to two per day.
  9. Sweeteners, vinegar, spices, herbs, garlic, onion, gherkins, pickled onions (not in large quantities), lemon juice, mustard and salt (in moderation), sugar-free natural ketchup, sugar-free chewing gum.
