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 out this new diet review and then weigh-in here with your thoughts.

Andie,

Thanks for giving us the "skinny" LOL on the 17 Day Diet.

Dr. Phil is promoing this on a series he doing. He selected some people to go on this diet. Only, he is having meals (chef prepared) delivered to their homes and free gym memberships with personal trainers.

Who wouldn't/couldn't lose weight with ALL that help!!

But, now here is the real deal....."after the party" and when on their own.......MAINTENANCE time.

I do think there are some good tips in the info. I read. My issue is self control/portion control. I have been learning to develop more control this past year.Also making exercise a regular part of my life.

Really if books help a person to lose unwanted/unhealthy weight that is good.

Barb

P.S. I am taking the healthy lifestyle approach.
