    If diets that promote the same approach day in and day out bore you, The 17 Day Diet may be for you.


    The 17 Day Diet is actually three cycles, each lasting 17 days, plus a fourth long-term maintenance cycle. Whether you are looking to lose 10 or 100 pounds, this plan can help you lose weight quickly, avoid the dreaded plateaus, and revamp your metabolism, says author Michael Moreno, MD.


    Our community is a big advocate for eat less, exercise more...but it's always good to know about the facts about the newest diet trends and discoveries.


    Check this out this diet review and then weigh-in here with your thoughts. :)
    Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours. - Irish Proverb

    I suppose it may work for some who follow it.

    Just be careful with the "unlimited lean protein" and "unlimited non-starchy veg" - you could eat 2000 calories of these unlimited foods in one day if you allow yourself! Portion control should still apply.

    I would not be interested, as I think one might as well just stick with a reduced calorie diet (variety of healthy foods) and lots of exercise for as many days as it takes to reach your goal weight anyway! Far simpler and you would lose the weight too.
