Dukan Diet 28 Vegetables List

If you are looking for the Dukan Diet approved 28 Vegetables for your cruise phase, keep reading.

It is during the first two phases of the Dukan Diet, you will lose all of your desired weight . During the brief attack phase, you are eating a diet very rich in low fat proteins and during the cruise phase you alternate the attack menu with vegetable and protein days or PV menu.

The basic rules remain the same. You don't count calories on this diet. It is the food categories that count. You can eat unlimited quantities of the approved foods in the approved categories so you never go hungry while dieting. Dr. Dukan and his team have also come up with protein and protein-vegetable recipes that are creative, interesting, healthy and delicious. It is surprising how many delicious creamy flavorful sauces and accompaniments are in the Dukan Diet Cookbook. You will find a Dukan Osso Buco Recipe, Spicy Stuffed Courgettes or Spicy Stuffed Zucchini, Dukan Beef Bourguignon, Chicken Provencal as well as delicious recipes for gourmet eggs, soups, and even fantastic dessert recipes for every phase of the diet.

The Dukan Diet Recipe book really does provide an invaluable collection of recipes - a few will be posted on the site to give you an idea. Feel free to leave comments to vote if you would prefer a Dukan approved dessert recipe or a beef recipe or a Dukan fish recipe.

In addition to the rules of sticking to the protein categories for Dukan and the approved protein and vegetables, there are a few other rules that are non-negotiable.

  • You must do a 25 minute walk every day - more is better but it is a requirement to walk 25 minutes each day. Consider it doctor's orders!


  • You must drink one and a half litres of water each day minimum (48 ounces of water daily) - there are many reasons for this but know that it is crucial and just make sure you drink the required water during your diet.
  • Oat Bran each day is also included in the diet. During the attack phase - one and a half tablespoons of oat bran each day is required.
