The Stabilisation Phase of the Dukan Diet Explained
The Stabilisation Phase of the Dukan Diet is the fourth and last phase which you will follow for the rest of your life to maintain your ideal weight. It is probably the most difficult phase to stick to as many people lose weight successfully a much smaller number manages to keep the weight off for good.
In this phase apart from one Pure Protein (PP) day each week, which is usually recommended to be Thursday, there are no foods or drinks that are off limits to you but if you return to the unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits that you had before starting the Dukan Diet you are unlikely to be successful and you weight will start to climb back up again.
It is a good idea at least at first to base your new eating plan around the rules of the Consolidation phase and just add in an extra piece of fruit each day or an extra portion of high carb starchy foods each week or use little oil or fat in your cooking.
Although there is nothing off limits you are expected to continue to eat 3 tablespoons of oat bran and drink 2 liters of water each day. You are also expected to continue exercising for at least 20 minutes each day.
If you start to put on weight again you can add in an additional PP day each week or increase the amount of exercise you are undertaking each day until you are back to your target weight.
