Cruise. Swapping PP and PV days?

Apologies if this has been asked before, have searched but couldn't find the answer here or in the book.

Very chuffed with my start on Dukan and after 3 days Attack have started Cruise phase, doing 1PP/1PV. Is it possible to tweak this pattern or will it disrupt losses? Tuesdays are my day off and will be a PP day. That is one day when I have time to cook more creatively and really take the time to enjoy my meals, so it would be nice to have it as a PV day.

Today is PP, if I did tomorrow as PP, then Tuesday and Wed as PV, then went back to the 1/1 rhythm would it disrupt the losses?

I'd agree with Dgirl. I don't know what the official advice would be but for example if I've a meal out planned I tend to have it as a PV day as it's easier. The book does say that a different combinations is possible though, say 5 PP days and 5 PV days though. Give it a go and see how you do.m And good luck!

It shouldnt disrupt any weight loss, we always tend to change our week and have 2 PP's together to accomodate a Sunday lunch.

Thanks, girls!

Am looking forward to making ( and eating) some home-made soup on Tuesday and a tasty warming beef and veg stew, going to freeze it in portions in takeaway containers , so I've got something yummy to hand on busy days later in the week.

Also got a recipe I can make Dukan-friendly for a Mediterranean-style fish stew/soupy thing,which is delish, with garlic and tomatoes and some herbs so that will be nice for a posh supper on my day off!

I've been very strict, but quite plain in my meals in my first week of Dukan due to lack of time, so it'll be nice to have something tastier!
