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.
AdvertisementThe founder 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.
