The seventeen day diet
17 Day Diet by Mary Jane Popp
Okay, how many chocolate bunnies did you really eat over the Easter weekend ? And then you wonder why you put on a few extra pounds. Do you want to take them off, and perhaps a few more?
Dr. Mike Moreno claims he has the key to weight loss success. When he was on my POPPOFF Radio Program, my main concern was keeping the pounds off. You know what I mean, right? All diets can take off the pounds. Keeping them off is the key. He claims his diet will keep them off.
Dr. Moreno told me “The 17 Day Diet” is helping millions of people lose weight quickly in a safe, healthy, nutritionally sound, and lasting way. He has been featured on “Good Morning America,” “The Doctors,” and in USA Today, Woman’s World, and lots more. So, I sat back and was willing to listen.
Naturally, my first question is why 17 days and not 20 or 30? He told me that it’s the timeframe in which alterations in dietary habits can affect our bodies both inside and out. After 17 days, our bodies require change, yet a habit has not been formed.
Studies show that it takes 21 days to form a habit. 17 days prevents plateaus and boredom, two problems that plague dieters on most weight-loss regimes.
My next question had to do with his four cycles in his plan. Each cycle plays a specific role in achieving the ultimate goal. That goal is not only weight loss, but better overall health and the improved lifestyle that goes with it. Briefly, here are the cycles.
1) ACCELERATE. Its purpose is to cleanse the body through the removal of sugars and carbohydrates and to stimulate the fat burning process.
2) ACTIVATE. This focuses on the concept of “metabolic confusion.” By alternating between high calorie and low calorie intake, you create a process that further encourages fat burning and leads to further weight loss while avoiding plateaus.
3) ACHIEVE. This cycle reintroduces many common foods that are rich in carbs. The goal here is to resume normal habits after cleansing and manipulating your body’s metabolism. You’ll be able to process, metabolize and enjoy these foods without having a negative effect on your health.
4) ARRIVE. You are not able to enjoy nearly anything…in moderation…that just 51 days ago would have negatively impacted your life. This cycle is an accumulation of metabolic health, will power, discipline and proper mindset.
Next question. How much weight can the average person expect to lose? This one was kind of surprising. On average, a person can expect to lose between 10-12 pounds in one cycle. But, because individual metabolisms differ, individual results may differ as well. People who have more excess weight would probably be on the higher end of this range.
Finally, since this promises quick weight loss, isn’t there a risk that we can put it right back again? Dr. Moreno said that “The 17 Day Diet” will teach you that the antiquated concept of “slow and steady” may not apply to weight loss. Current studies indicate that rapid results, when done in a healthy way, are not only beneficial but more likely to succeed long-term.
And yes, there is exercise as a key component. You have to get moving. You have to start somewhere and work your way up.
The good Doc also provides complete menu plans for each cycle, a total of 51 daily menus.
The meals are low in fat, high in fiber, packed with nutrition, and designed to trigger rapid weight loss.
And yes, I asked that question too. Do they taste good? I got his guarantee. If you want more info, go to www.17daydiet.com. See you on the other side…svelte and healthy. GOOD LUCK !!!
