Pure Protein Day in Consolidation and Stabilization Phases


Since consolidation phase, Dr. Dukan recommends us as one pure proteins day a week (he chose Thursday, but can be any day of the week). This day remember us so much of the first phase of the diet – Attack. Actually, the Pure Protein day is just as any Attack day, but some changes may occur during stabilization phase.

So, this is the day you eat only meat, eggs and dairy. Regarding the latter category, you must be careful to the amount of lactose containing by dairy products and reduce it as much. Avoid consuming more milk and low-fat cheese (and be carefully with the yogurt because if you compare a yogurt with low-fat cheese, they have the same number of calories, but cheese contain more protein and less lactose than yogurt).

Regarding water, if the attack were recommended minimum of 1.5 liters of water, on Pure Proteins Thursday Dukan recommends that we drink at least 2 liters of water per day.

Also, we need to reduce as much as possible the amount of salt we use in dishes.
