Cruise Phase Info

For the Dukan Cruise Phase you should now have 2tbsp of oat bran each day and start doing a 30-minute daily walk.

You should follow this phase for three days for each pound you want to lose – so that means if you want to lose 20lb, you need to follow this phase for 60 days.

Basically, you keep going until you reach your chosen weight.
