The distinct Dukan Diet 4 Phases will help you Lose and Stabilize your Weight
The Dukan Diet does not guarantee extreme results in record time. Instead it promises that if you follow the instructions you will be able to reach your True Weight, a realistic weight that you can attain & maintain for the rest of your life.
The Dukan Diet 4 Phases
1. The ATTACK Phase : to jump start your weight loss.

3. The CONSOLIDATION Phase : to prevent the rebound effect.
During this time you are at your most vulnerable, as the body has a tendency to quickly regain weight. The Consolidation Phase is designed to prevent the rebound effect by gradually returning previously forbidden foods in limited quantities and allowing for up to two “celebration" meals per week. This phase follows a strict timeline – 5 days per every pound lost in Cruise Phase. It is important to follow one other important step once the Consolidation Phase has begun - a pure protein day on Thursday.

Two phases are devoted completely to the maintenance of your True Weight: the Consolidation and Stabilization phases. The last phase, Stabilization, is probably the easiest but also the most important.
