We see a lot of diet-related news, obviously, but we haven’t seen anything take off with this much enthusiasm in a long time. The 17 Day Diet, released last month via appearances on Dr. Phil and The Doctors, is a new weight loss book that promises rapid results via a four-cycle plan.
The author, Dr. Mike Moreno, spoke with us about The 17 Day Diet and explained what it is, why the up-to 12 pounds in 17 days is in fact a healthy rate of weight loss, and why the 17-minute fitness recommendation is a “safe way to get started.”
He also confronts critics who say the book proposes nothing new. To that he says, “you’re right,” and argues that what The 17 Day Diet does do is present that information in a new way that helps people make changes.
Diets come and diets go. And while some of them are crazy fads that disappear a lot faster than the pounds do, some new diets are rooted in sound nutrition… and the public picks up on it.
The 17 Day Diet was originally intended as a holiday diet plan, created by Dr. Mike Moreno, which makes it all the more pertinent at the moment. But the plan can be done at any time. The main attraction to the 17 Day Diet is the “body confusion” approach. That means that you keep your body guessing, so to speak, by changing up what you eat. This keeps your metabolism from getting stuck in a rut.
While the name 17 Day Diet may sound like a fad diet, because your first impression is that it’s only 17 days until you get to your goal weight, that actually refers to the period of each eating cycle.
Part of the reason the 17 Day Diet is on the rise is its high-profile featuring on Dr. Phil and The Doctors.
