17 day Diet = 4 cycles each 17 days
Written by Dr. Mike Moreno
This is a synopsis written on his site:
“If you need to shed pounds fast and in a safe and effective way, this book is for you! Unlike many diet programs that starve you down to size, Dr. Mike Moreno’s 17 Day Diet relies on proven methods to help you take the weight off and keep it off. His revolutionary program adjusts your body metabolically so that you burn fat, day in and day out. Each 17 day Cycle “Accelerate, Activate, Achieve and Arrive” changes your calorie count and the foods you eat. This variation that Dr. Mike coined as “body confusion” keeps your metabolism guessing, and you can expect to lose up to 10 to 12 pounds in the first 17 days! As an added bonus, the 17 Day Diet includes sample meal plans and a recipe section filled with tasty, easy and healthy food options. Whether you need to lose those last 10 pounds or drop 10 dress sizes, the 17 Day Diet is the perfect jump-start to a healthier, thinner you!”
Cycle 1 Accelerate = cleans up your act for 17 days you eat lean protein (white meat only), detoxifying vegetables and low sugar fruit. There are also 2 servings of Probiotics daily, and green tea throughout the day.
Cycle 2 Activate = Cycle 2 is to create body confusion or to “Activate” fat burning mode by basically calorie shifting to keep the metabolism guessing. Red meat is added back in and some carbs as well.
Cycle 3 Achieve = Decreasing Protein to introduce some more carbs and portion control & healthy habits are key here as well.
Cycle 4 Arrive = Maintenance
The diet is straight forward – Get the book, read the book
Please post achievements, struggles, and recipes!!
I wanted somewhere to go to post everything in conjunction with this diet for support.
I basically see this as a common sense diet – The Dr. has his own website with videos answering questions that have been asked, and very commons sense answers.
The book is easy to read and makes sense with out CRAZY ingredients that have to be special ordered. Everything can be found at your local food stand and grocery.
We can do it!
I am starting out at 196 - Where are you starting?
