I am on day 6 of the 17 day diet (cycle 1) and I have already lost 4 1/2 lbs. My son is on day 5 and he has lost 7 lbs. This is a great diet if you love veggies, fruits, and lean meats. You CAN'T cheat on this diet or it will not work. You can't do it 75% of the time and expect to have results. The book is written in a simple, easy to follow format. It does not lecture you and it is not full of medical terms and statistics. It differs from Atkins in that the foods are easy to prepare and realistic for normal, everyday people. There are no fancy foods/meals that you have to prepare. This diet includes everyday foods that you can buy in your local Walmart. There are no expensive drinks or bars to buy. The only downside to this diet that I have found is that I have had a constant headache. The first 2 days were the hardest for me, but each day is better and I am thrilled with the weight loss so far. I am never hungry and at the end of the day, I feel great about my accomplishment. I am so thankful that I found this book!

17 Day Diet Book

Much cheaper online than in store, almost $9.00 less. The book is straight forward as far as your food selection. I am on day 4 of cycle 2 and have lost 7.4 lbs. I have stuck to the diet to the tee and have exercised Mon-Fri for least 17 minutes, really about 30 minutes. Some of the food choices are hard to find but if you look around at all the local grocery stores, including Walmart, most are readily available. The hardest thing is the hot lemon water first thing in the morning, but who can't drink a cup of something yucky??? I also am not a water lover, but find that if I pour my 56 oz. in a pitcher each morning, it's gone by the end of the day. I love green tea, so that was already in place. The only part of the book I found off was telling you to eat you fruit no later than 2:00 and then having fruit in your evening snack menu? I set out to lose 20 lbs so I feel within by the end of the fourth 17 day cycles it is obtainable. Unlike Atkins you can't eat whatever kind of protein you want. It's all lean, low fat, and plenty to choose from. Unlike weight watchers all you have to count is your 2 fruits and your 2 probiotics (yogurt, cottage cheese, etc). This is not like Atkins, Weight Watchers, etc, it's just good eating habits.

If you are serious about losing some weight and are ready to ditch the junk food and pastries, then this healthy eating plan will work for you. Dr. Moreno tells us in an easy-to-read format how to rev up our body's metabolism in the first 17 days with lean protein, lots of different veggies, low sugar fruits, yogurt, and heart-friendly fats. Another key component is 8 glasses of water each day. I really believe this was a big factor in my weight loss. I lost 11 pounds in the first 13 days of the diet and everything I ate was good, nutritious food. He simplifies the plan even more by listing sample meals for the 17 day cycles, so if you don't have the time or feel comfortable in planning what to eat at each meal, it is all there for you. I have to admit that I was really skeptical when I started the diet, but I am a believer! The added bonus is that you know you are getting healthier each day. I am looking forward to the next cycles when I will add even more foods to my diet until there will be nothing off-limits except the large bag of potato chips and gallon of ice-cream in front of the tv... :)

I have been trying to lose a lot of weight for a long long time. I heard about this book because a couple of people I know lost about 20lbs in a month after following this diet. I decided to give it a try. I am on day 11 of the accelerate (first cycle) of the diet and I have lost almost 17lbs already. I can't tell you how much better I feel. I am eating all healthy foods, have more energy and am already fitting into smaller clothes!! It's far from easy during this first cycle, very limited food choices, mostly lean protein, fruits, veggies, yogurt/cottage cheese... but after losing so much weight initially I didn't want to stop. After the first 17 days you can add more of a variety which I am really looking forward to. Good Luck

I really like this book. My husband and I have been on the diet for 15 days and he has already lost 14lbs and I have lost 9lbs. It is easy to follow and no weird foods to eat.

  • A. It is not a diet, it's making changes to the way you eat, when and what you eat.

  • A. This diet teaches you what and when to eat to lose weight. You eat little to no sugar or fats. If you go back to your old habits that put you overweight and eat unhealthy ie junk food, too much fat or sugar you will gain it back. I have just finished the first 17 days and have lost 10 lbs and almost a full pant size.

  • A. NO... you donot. There are four cycles to follow on this diet and each one is for 17 days and you eat a lot of food of many chooses. If you gain weight from binging after coming off of a cycle on the week end, you just go back to the first cycle for another 17 days and watch the amounts that you eat. If you try the diet you will not be disappointed.

  • A. Unfortunaly, I beleive once you loose weight, it is a life time commitment to eat healthy, small portions and workout to avoid gaining the weight back.
