17 Day diet

The 17-day Diet

This popular diet was created by Californian Dr Michael Moreno. It has been reported that a weight loss of 10-12 pounds is possible during the first cycle of 17 days. The diet basically restricts the intake of 'bad' carbs initially and then reintroduces 'good' carbs gradually back into the eating plan.

There are three cycles that each last 17 days. This is reported as preventing the boredom that often sets in with a diet after 2 weeks, and changing the menu and exercise can help the body burn more calories and fat.

Cycle 2 - Activate - this second stage resets the body's metabolism, allowing 200 more calories with the addition of two servings of 'healthy' carbs.

Cycle 3 - Achieve - the third stage increases the calorie allowance, and includes snacks and one serving of alcohol. This cycle is supposed to help develop good eating habits.

Cycle 4 - Arrive - this final stage is when you reach your goal weight, and are maintaining it. An allowance is introduced to allow treats or favourites at the weekend.
