Dukan Diet Tuna Recipe – Attack Phase Friendly
What can you eat on the Dukan Diet attack phase? During the attack phase of the Dukan Diet, you may find yourself in search of new recipes that are Dukan approved. If you don’t have tons of time to research recipes, we would recommend buying the Pierre Dukan Cookbook full of Dukan Diet recipes. If you haven’t bought the recipe book yet or if you are just testing the waters to decide if the diet is right for you, then here are a couple of Dukan Tuna recipes perfect for the most challenging part of the diet, the attack phase.
If you want to succeed during the attack phase which is when you will lose the most weight the fastest, you need to stock plenty of proteins from Dukan’s approved list of 72 foods that you can eat during the attack phase. Dr. Dukan recommends stocking up on more than you think you may need of the approved proteins so that you don’t feel tempted to cheat on the diet because of lack of food. You should never go hungry on the diet.
It is so important not to eat foods that are not on the list of safe foods. Dr. Dukan equates cheating to sticking a pin into an inflated balloon. If you do make a mistake, and cheat on the diet – he recommends the following. For the rest of that day, you have to change strategy a bit. You must count calories and limit what you eat until bedtime. Then, just forget about it, jump back on track and make the right choices from the approved food categories going forward.
If you can help it, don’t go out to eat during your attack phase. It will make it easier for you if you avoid temptation and meals with potential hidden fats or oils. If you must eat out for a work function or special occasion – eat within the confines of the Dukan diet menu as much as you can. If you are at a restaurant, you can usually ask the chef to prepare a beef, fish or chicken dish without oil, seasoned with just salt and pepper. Stay away from the bread, alcohol and dessert! When you get home, reward yourself with a Dukan Dessert recipe.
In this post, we will give you two Dukan approved Tuna Tartare recipes. The first is the Dukan Tuna Tartare recipe from the Dukan Cookbook. Remember this is totally attack phase approved.
Dukan Tuna Tartare or Tartare de Thon
Prep time: 15 minutes (plus 15 minutes marinating)
No cooking required
2 1/4 lb tuna (1kg)
Juice of 1 lime
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 bunch of chives, finely chopped
2 inch piece of ginger grated

Salt and black pepper
Cut the tuna into small cubes and drizzle with lime juice. Mix the garlic, ginger, chives, and fromage frais in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and add the fish. Mix thoroughly and leave in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving.
If you want an alternative, I much prefer this tartare recipe and have enjoyed a variation of it long before I heard of the Dukan Diet.
