Weight Loss in 4 Cycles with The 17 Day Diet

Submitted by on April 13, 2011 – 12:05 amNo Comment




Many stories of notable weight loss have emerged which are being credited to the 17 Day Diet. The diet founded by Dr. Mike Moreno, a Californian family physician has turned out to be the hottest diet trend & creating quite a lot of buzz.

Moreno asserts that those following the 17 Day Diet would attain outcomes lasting for life-long. The diet is divided into 4 cycles with each one comprising of seventeen days wherein a dieter varies the proteins, carbohydrates, fruit varieties & other types of food he/ she consumes for stimulating body metabolism & promoting weight reduction.

Every cycle/ phase would be unfolding in seventeen days since it is believed to be just prior to the time when the body begins recognizing the diet as a routine & slackening of metabolism occurs. Moreover, followers of the diet are advised on walking seventeen minutes daily. Even Moreno is reportedly joining in the walking sessions along with his dieters in S. Diego.

Although the diet does not involve total elimination of particular foods, there are several points to bear in mind like:

  • Using spices.
  • Using fruits as a substitute for sugars.
  • Using cinnamon, garlic.
  • Opting for mustard instead of mayo.
  • No fruits or particular forms of carbohydrates are permitted past two p.m.
  • Greek yoghurt is a major constituent of the diet.

Among some of the highlights of the diet, one is allowed eating a cookie during breakfast. Moreno believes that the 17 Day Diet is one size fitting all – ideal for those keen on shedding 5 lbs prior to that much-awaited date or whether one is aiming for 150 lbs. weight loss or for those people who feel their weight is ideal – the plan doesn’t just lay emphasis on the weighing scales moving, though focus laid on sound, appropriate digestive health.

The general message taken is to eat clean through calorie-cutting, restricting sugar alcohol & refined carbs – and most importantly, exercise.

The 17 Day diet deploys calorie-confusion for deceiving the body into revving up metabolism.

The last cycle of this diet permits the dieter in eating & drinking whatever one wants on the weekend till the time one eats healthy through the week.

With the swimsuit season in, the 17 Day Diet is certainly going to have many takers.
