Dukan Diet Attack Phase Menu – Days 2 and 3

This post contains suggested menus for two more days (Days 2 and 3) of the Attack Phase of the Dukan Diet, but these menus can of course also be used on Pure Protein days in other parts of the diet. The Attack Phase is the most difficult Phase of the Dukan Diet, but it is the part of the diet in which you will get the biggest weight loss.

I’ve tried to put together a menu over a week which will give a fair amount of variety using foods which should be easily available. It provides the necessary Attack Phase daily serving of 1 1/2 tablespoons of oat bran and uses only 4 egg yolks over the whole seven days. If you are using this menu for other phases of the diet you will need to increase the amount of oat bran you are eating.  Four egg yolks is the amount recommended for anyone suffering from raised cholesterol, if you have no problems with cholesterol you can have up to seven in a week.

Day 2 Protein only (1/2 egg)



  • Low fat Yogurt




Day 3 Protein only  (1/2 egg)



  • Beef Jerky or Biltong

    Hi Amber ,

    I really need to start the Dukan diet but cannot get oat bran as I am on a ship at sea for 3 more months. I have access to only white oats and all bran cereal.

    What can I do

    • Amber on September 28, 2014

      Hi Will

      You just follow the Dukan excluding the oat bran.

      Kind regards

    What about doing ground flaxseed instead of oat bran? Here is the info on the one I currently use:

    Ground flaxseed
    Serving size: 2tbsp
    Fat: 4g
    Carb: 4g
    Fiber: 4g
    Protein: 3g

      Hi Stephanie

      There is no approved alternative to oat bran. Sorry.

      Kind regards


  • Elsabe Steyn on June 30, 2014

    Hi Amber, Can I have a 2egg omlette with bacon and onion every morning and for snack oatbran with fat free yogurt in the attack phase?

    • Amber on June 30, 2014

      Hi Elsabe

      Provided you don’t have problems with cholesterol you can eat this breakfast every morning and have the oat bran as a snack with yogurt.

      Kind regards


  • Anita on June 24, 2014

    Hi there I am a celiac so I cannot eat oats is there alternative to this?

    • Amber on June 25, 2014

      Hi Anita

      There is no substitute for oat bran but some celiacs do tolerate gluten free oat bran.

      Kind regards


  • Antonia on June 24, 2014

    Hi Amber, I am just wondering are any type of nuts allowed as part of the Dukan diet? Like for example can they be used as snacks substitutes?

    • Amber on June 24, 2014

      Hi Antonia

      Nuts are too high in fat to be allowed on the Dukan Diet.

      Kind regards


  • Osi on June 23, 2014

    Hi Amber , today is my first day of Dukan diet and I am stubbing. my question is I am going to holiday soon , what can I eat in my holidays?

  • Angie on May 20, 2014

    Hi how do I start the dukan diet? What can I have gory breakfast that is quick n easy as very busy in the mornings and only got a few mins for breakfast?? Same goes for lunch can I have vegetables on my 1st day? Thanks

    • Amber on May 20, 2014

      Hi Angie

      You need to do your research so that you understand the diet. Vegetables are not added until the second phases and then only on alternate days. Perhaps you would be better following a different diet.

      Kind regards


  • Atefeh on March 23, 2014


    I am wondering if it is fine to have lettuces beside my Salmon or chicken ? or broccoli ? I mean the vegetables that have no sugar or high calories.


    • Amber on March 23, 2014

      Hi Atefah

      Sorry, lettuce and broccoli are not added to the Dukan Diet until you reach the Cruise Phase.

      Kind regards


  • safaa on February 25, 2014

    Need to loose 40 pounds so how long should I stay on phase 1.

    • Amber on February 25, 2014

      Hi Safaa

      I’d recommend 5 days as this usually gives the maximum benefit.

      Kind regards

  • James on November 19, 2013


    What spices can I add to my food while on the attack phase?

    Thank you,

    • Amber on November 19, 2013

      Hi James

      You can use any herbs or spices in your cooking throughout all phases of the Dukan Diet but take care if you buy made up mixtures as some contain ingredients that aren’t herbs or spices.

      Best wishes


  • Joy Del Grosso on November 1, 2013

    From day 2 on May I have an egg white gallett for
    Breakfast every day? Is it really true that I can eat
    Unlimited amounts of lean protein like, chicken,
    Beef, and shellfish? Two years ago I lost 28 pounds on
    The Dukan Diet with daily exercise and now I have
    15 to lose as a went off program. Please advise??

    • Amber on November 1, 2013

      Hi Joy

      The Dukan is very similar to two years ago. Yes you can have an egg white galette every day and yes the lean proteins are unlimited. The lean proteins satisfy your hunger more quickly and keep you satisfied longer.

      I’d recommend following the diet in the same way as you did before as this helped you lose 28 pounds.

      Best wishes


  • Lina on October 18, 2013

    Hi there. I noticed that the menus for the attack phase are complete daily meals (ie. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, plus snacks). My problem is, I don’t ever have 3 meals a day (my body/stomach can’t really handle that much). I usually just have one full meal a day or healthy snacks throughout the day like fruits, hi-fibre biscuits, soy milk etc. With certain exceptions on certain days (I am quite a calorie-obsessed person).
    So, I am very curious as to how I am able to follow the Dukan Diet.
    Do advice! Thanks!

    • Amber on October 18, 2013

      Hi Lina

      You don’t have to eat three meals a day if you don’t want to, the menus are just suggestions. What matters is the foods you are eating rather than the number of meals and snacks you’re having.

      Kind regards


  • Tunia on September 24, 2013

    Started attack phase but ate ground nuts for two days, can I start again or are they allowed at this stage

    • Amber on September 28, 2013

      Hi Tunia

      I’m afraid that no types of nuts are allowed in the two weight loss phases of the Dukan Diet. If you ate a lot of nuts I would start again but if it were only a few I would just carry on.

      Kind regards


  • Veronica on September 23, 2013

    Can I eat a boiled egg and a oat bran Porridge for the first day of attack mode? That is both for breakfast.

    • Amber on September 23, 2013

      Hi Veronica

      Yes you can eat both for breakfast.

      Kind regards


  • Claire on September 23, 2013

    What type of oat bran is used on the dukan diet?

  • Janine on May 28, 2013

    Hi Amber can one snack on pecan nuts?

    • Amber on May 28, 2013

      Hi Janine

      I’m afraid pecan nuts are not allowed.

  • Jazmine on May 9, 2013

    Can you eat ribs While on the diet?&what about watermelon?

    • Amber on May 9, 2013

      Hi Jazmine

      I’m afraid ribs are too fatty and watermelon too high in sugar. So neither food is allowed in the weight loss phases of the diet.

      Kind regards


  • seth on March 7, 2013

    Hello Amber
    is it fine for me to eat steamed chicken drumsticks instead of chicken breasts? Chicken breasts taste horible and boring.. thnx :)

    • Amber on March 7, 2013

      Hi Seth

      Steamed chicken drumsticks are fine to eat except when you get to Stabilisation. Then on Dukan Thursdays you are looking to maximize the benefit so restrict yourself to low fat proteins.

      Best wishes
