The 17 Day Diet

Updated on May 15, 2012

The 17 Day Diet

Ok there's been a lot of talk about this new diet called The 17 Day Diet. It seems like every few years there's a new fad diet trend that every one has just got to try. Well The 17 Day Diet works by resetting your metabolism and transforming your body in just 17 days. The creator of this diet is Dr. Mike Moreno, he's been featured on the popular Dr. Phill show. Dr. Moreno initially created this diet to avoid holiday weight gain, but he later found out something fantastic, it can actually be used year round to shed a few pounds. The way this diet is designed, your actually changing what you're doing every 17 days,but he main components teach you how to cleanse, burn fat, reset your Metabolism, learn how to eat carbs and even splurge a little, I think that one small perk of splurging makes the diet so popular.

The diet has four cycles, cycle 1: Accelerate. Encourages rapid weight loss, cleansing and fat burning. Discourages fat storage. Cycle 2: Activates: Resets the metabolism. Cycle 3: Achieve. Develop good eating habits, reteach yourself how to eat carbs. Cycle 4: Arrive. A combination of the first three cycles. On the weekends, enjoy your favorite foods, yummy. Now the 17 Day Diet also requires a 17 minute workout!! Now there are some pro's and con's to the diet. Pro: This diet is for everybody, meaning if you want to lose 5 pounds or 150 pounds this diet could work for you. Pro: It doesn't get monotonous, the plan itself is 68 days long broken up into 17 days a piece. Pro: The results are fast, you get good results in the first phase, during your first 17 days. Pro: Its fairly balanced, unlike the use to be popular Atkins diet, Dr. Moreno's plan doesn't completely cut out one of the main sources of nutrition. Fruits, vegetables, protein, rich meats and healthy carbs are all apart of this diet.

Now with every diet there's going to be some negatives, and here are the cons. Con: Scientific evidence, there is no real scientific evidence support the efficacy of calorie cycling or its effect on metabolism. Con: Your first 17 days of calorie restrictions could backfire, you are cleansing your body of unhealthy foods you have been eating, but if your not consuming enough calories to meet your metabolic needs, then starvation mode may actually slow your metabolism. A lot of people believe that these fad diets are just temporary and don't work long time, but people embark on adventure with hopes of losing weight. Well if for it or against it i think anything is worth a try. the whole reality is eating healthy on daily basis and exercise on a regular basis it will keep pounds off. One of my favorite shows is the Biggest Loser and they use healthy eating and exercise as there main source of weight loss and there contestants sheds pound with in weeks. The 17 Day Diet is very popular right now and many will probably benefit from it and others may not, i guess will have to wait a few years to see if is actually just a trendy diet fad.

      A unique hub, presenting both pros and cons of the Moreno 17 Day Diet Plan. Now it's up to us readers to make necessary adjustments. This is a good diet plan! Yes, the Biggest Loser show is now aired in our country. There's no harm in trying if one is already akin to dieting, is there? Thanks for sharing this.

      You're welcome. Atkins got a really bad press as the "All Bacon!" diet, but I was on Atkins for over two years and honestly had never eaten as many vegetables :)
