Cruise phase – potatoes, lentils, green beans, corn, peas, avocados

Dukan diet and alcohol:

As Dr Dukan said, alcohol can be allowed in this diet if you know how to drink it. Alcohol can be drunk in normal doses in consolidation phase.

 “Very often people put on weight with an "All or Nothing" attitude as they go from being strict to lax. To lose weight you have to re-adopt this approach: either go for it wholeheartedly or do nothing. Between both extremes, you slow down your metabolism, your results and motivation - and you lose the battle. Don't ever forget that a properly followed diet only lasts a few months and this is so little compared with all the benefits dieting brings you.”
Pierre Dukan
