A new weight loss diet organized as 4 cycles comprising of
17 days each is soon gaining popularity. The concept of this diet plan is to
stimulate the metabolism by making variations in the food intake. Each cycle
lasts for 17days, as beyond this stipulated period the body begins to recognize
the diet as a habit and metabolism slows down.
The diet recommends to use spices and not to eat fruits or
certain carbohydrates after 2pm. Greek yogurt is recommended and the diet does
not stop you from eating a cookie every now and then. But one has to avoid
sugars and processed foods. Alcoholic beverages have to be excluded during the
initial stages of the diet. Followers of this diet regime are
supposed to walk everyday for 17 minutes.
of this diet, Dr. Mike Moreno has claimed that dieters can expect weight-loss of 10-12 pounds in just 17-days.
He believes that this is probably the only diet that is suitable for everybody
and unlike other fad diets the results of this diet are sustainable. It does
not aim just at weight reduction but focuses on good, proper digestive health.
