Thumbs up The 17 day diet

I started the 17 day diet March 16 and so far I am loving it. It includes all the foods I love and I am losing the weight. Anyone else doing this one??

That's great that it (whatever it is) is working for you. What, though, happens on April 3rd?

Regards,
Michael

Yeah, I was going to mention that. I have a suspicion this might be "sneaky spam".

Of course, I could be wrong (it's not uncommon )--how 'bout it, Bourque2? People want to know all about this amazing diet and your success with it!

Regards,
Michael

The 17 day diet is some new Dr. Phil thing. I'm not sure of the details, but I believe you change to a new "diet" every 17 days, hence the name. It's supposed to keep things interesting and prevent boredom.

Default Don't know if OP was spam but

I started this diet on Sunday the 10th. I loaded the book on my NOOK. The diet/book are by Dr. Mike Moreno. It's a cyclical diet that seems to have been successful for a lot of people. The first cycle is the most restrictive and is similar but not identical to a cleansing diet my homeopath puts people on. It's basically fish, poultry, eggs, non-starch vegetables and fruits like berries, apples as well as probiotic yogurt, kefir etc. You also drink water and green tea.

I have a carb "problem" so I needed a diet that just got me off cold turkey. It's a lot like a no white foods type diet and seems healthy enough although somewhat lacking in the firts phase. You can't have nuts, beans, cheese etc in the first phase so it is rather limiting but not in a very difficult or unhealthy way.

There's some scientific or psuedo scientific theory about the 17 days and the amount of time for something to be a habit along with the need to switch things up and trick your body or something.

The cycles are Accelerate, Activate, Achieve and Arrive and they basically add foods and increase excerise.

If anyone has other questions let me know!
