Phase 2 – Cruise Phase Recipes

This is where the dieter really settles into the dietary plan. By alternating days involving pure protein and introducing days that are protein and vegetables, you can enjoy eating large portions. The cruise phase adds 32 vegetables. You will gradually but steadily lose weight by alternating Pure Protein days and Protein + Vegetables days. You will not lose weight as rapidly as the Attack Stage, but you will gradually continue to slim down toward your target “ideal weight”.

 The average length of this phase is based on a schedule of 3 days for each pound you want to lose.

Cruise is the workhorse stage of the diet, where you alternate the pure protein days of Attack with days when you include a delicious array of unlimited salads and vegetables to your wide selection of meat, fish and no-fat dairy products.

The most efficient way to work this stage is to spend one day on pure protein, and the next on a protein-based dish and vegetables, then alternating between the two for as long it takes for you to reach your target weight.

The pure protein message remains the same, but on vegetable days you are free to begin your meal with a crunchy salad or soup, have vegetables with your main course, and enjoy delicious crudites as a snack.

You can introduce the following veg either raw, steamed, boiled, or baked (in foil) with your meat or fish: artichoke, asparagus, aubergine, broccoli, cabbage (white, red, savoy, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts), celery, celeriac, chicory, courgette, cucumber, fennel, French beans, leeks, mangetout, mushrooms, onions, peppers, pumpkin, radish, salad leaves, sorrel, soya beans, spinach, swede, Swiss chard, tomatoes, turnip.

Carrots and beetroot are permitted, too, but they are quite starchy, so avoid having them too often. And while you’re in the Cruise phase, steer away from starchy vegetables such as potatoes, rice, corn, peas, beans (haricot, cannellini, kidney), lentils and avocado (which is technically a fruit anyway).
