28 Vegetables Added in the Cruise Phase of the Dukan Diet

There are 28 permitted vegetables for PV (Protein and Vegetable) days in the Cruise Phase which you add to the list of 72 low fat, high protein foods from the Attack Phase.  When you look at the vegetables listed in more detail you will see that many of these 28 vegetables have a large number of varieties that will give you a much wider choice than you might have first thought.  You also have to remember that you can also eat goji berries which with the stewed rhubarb gives you limited access to fruit as well.

There are three vegetables on the list, carrots, beetroot, and artichokes which you need to be careful when eating as their high sugar content might impact on your weight loss so you need to restrict these to one serving per week each.

The 28 Permitted Vegetables are:

  1. Artichokes (Globe not Jerusalem)
  2. Asparagus
  3. Aubergine (aka Egg Plant)
  4. Beetroot
  5. Broccoli
  6. Cabbage  (Broccoli and Cabbage are both a member of the Cole family and this allows you to eat a very wide variety of vegetables such as cauliflower, purple sprouting broccoli, red cabbage, white cabbage, collard greens, kale and brussel sprouts.  The picture for this post is of a Romanesco Cauliflower)
  7. Carrots
  8. Celery and Celeriac
  9. Chicory
  10. Courgettes (aka Zucchini)
  11. Cucumber
  12. Fennel
  13. French Beans/String Beans/Runner Beans/Mangetout
  14. Leeks
  15. Mushrooms ( all varieties including White Button, Shiitake, Oyster and Portabella)
  16. Onions (Red, White, Salad or Spring)
  17. Palm Hearts
  18. Peppers
  19. Pumpkins, Squashes and Marrows
  20. Radishes
  21. Salad Leaves (Of any sort including all types of Lettuce, Rocket and Watercress)
  22. Sorrel
  23. Soya Beans
  24. Spinach
  25. Swede
  26. Swiss Chard
  27. Tomatoes
  28. Turnips

    hello, is Psyllium husk ok instead of oat bran?

    • Amber on April 15, 2017

      Hi Lee

      Psyllium husk is used by a lot of followers of the Dukan to add extra fibre to their diet, They eat this as well as their daily serving of oat bran. If you want to leave out oat bran but use the psyllium husks to combat constipation this is fine.

    • Amber on April 8, 2017

      Hi Jane

      You can eat as much as you like but the diet works better if you favourprotein approx 2/3 protein to 1/3 vegetables is good to aim for.

      Hi basma

      You can make your own with cornflour and milk. Weight loss in the early stages of Cruise can be slow when you’ve had a good weight loss in Attack. Hang in there.
