With the first day of school already taking place in some parts of the country, and plans starting to be made for Labor Day weekend, it’s clear that summer is about to give way to fall. Checking in with yourself at the start of fall can be a good idea. As active as summer can be, summers like this where the heat seems to break a new record each day can leave us sitting inside just trying to stay cool, never mind working out. With the kids back in school and you back in control of your schedule, there’s no time like the present to re-start your weight loss efforts.
We’ve identified seven programs that, so far this year, really stand-out as leaders, offering their customers healthful, balanced approaches to weight loss and healthful living. Consider these for your fall weight loss resolution.
When it comes to really understanding different diets, sometimes it’s best to compare it to another popular diet. For example, The 17 Day Diet created by Dr. Mike Moreno is hugely popular right now. But in order to best understand its ins and outs, we thought we’d compare it to another popular diet- the South Beach Diet. Turns out, they have quite a bit in common!
Both of these diets are fairly cost effective in that it just takes buying the book to learn how the diet works. You can buy either diet book for less than $20 on Amazon. When it comes to buying the food required in the diets, the cost is about the same, too, as both emphasize eating lots of fresh produce, lean meats, beans, nuts, dairy and whole grains (in moderation). Both programs also offer branded foods that are not required for success on these diets, but some may find convenient. South Beach offers a line of package foods, such as wraps and meal bars. There is a17 Day Diet Meal Plan offered through the diet delivery service Bistro MD.
As of now, The 17 Day Diet does not have an in-depth online component (although I’d expect them to add that in the near future), but the website does offer free recipes and a caloric-needs and BMI calculator. On the other hand, the South Beach Diet has a robust online community and program costing $5 a week for your own customized meal plan; tools to track your weight, phase, and diet goals; and 24-hour online support and other online community features.
Since November when the book debuted, many questions have been asked by followers of the diet and by those considering the diet. We sat down with Dr. Mike to clarify the most commonly asked questions by our readers.
Here are your questions about The 17 Day Diet, and Dr. Mike’s answers:
Is The 17 Day Diet Appropriate for Diabetics?
“Absolutely, it’s a diabetic’s best friend,” whether type 1 or type 2, diabetics will realize weight loss. (more…)
One of the most frequently asked questions we get about The 17 Day Diet is “Where can I buy the book?” Until now, the book was only available through the author’s website. Overwhelming demand for the book appears to have led to some delays in shipping.
The good news is that starting today, The 17 Day Diet is now available on Amazon. Hopefully, Amazon’s large-scale facilities will end the kinds of logistical problems we’ve had so many comments about.
We’re barely through the first quarter of the year and 17 Day Diet is leading the charge as the year’s most popular diet. Released in November as a self-published title by Dr. Mike Moreno, he quickly got the attention of Dr. Phil and The Doctors. The 17 Day Diet has become the most sought-after weight loss plan for the new year. So popular in fact that Moreno’s self-publish supply couldn’t meet the 17 Day Diet book demand of customers.
Moreno will not stop self-publishing on Friday, March 4, 2011 and has turned rights for the book over to publishing giant Simon and Schuster. Previously the book was only available through the book’s site, but starting March 15, 2011, anxious customers can make a simple purchase on Amazon and other booksellers. (more…)
Tune in this Thursday, February 24, to The Doctors to see how The 17 Day Diet challengers are doing on the second cycle of the diet. Starting in January, the show has been following a handful of guests who agreed to follow the 17 day diet, kick their bad health habits, and lose some weight.
On Tuesday’s episode, we’ll see how the challengers have progressed. Plus, learn how you can take the challenge yourself and even win some fun prizes.
Although there are many resources available to those who are looking to lose weight, many people still turn to books for diet advice. This collection reflects our predictions of the diet books that will get the most attention in 2011.
Many of the diet books on this list have already been released. The 17 Day Diet, Cinch! and Sexy Forever have already proved to be very popular. Others are updates of well-known diets that have been on the market for some time. However, there are a few titles that we’re still waiting to be released, including a new material from Jillian Michaels and Chef Rocco Dispirito.
This weight loss plan created by Dr. Mike Moreno has taken the diet industry by storm. It’s unique program, which consists of four 17-day phases, promises to burn fat, curb your cravings and give you noticeable results within just a few days. (more…)
Since The 17 Day Diet first debuted in late November 2010 people everywhere have been clamoring to find out more about it and how to get their hands on it. We see a lot of diet programs at DietsInReview.com, obviously, and we can honestly say we haven’t seen demand like this for a weight loss product in a very long time. It’s become the hottest diet of 2011, and we’re barely a week in.
While the plan seems balanced and reasonable, as long as people are willing to make changes to their lifestyles, the one downside is that it seems to be impossible to get. We’re moderating comments as fast as we can and all seem to say the same thing: “how do I get it” or “where is mine?”.
The 17 Day Diet is quickly becoming a lesson in supply and demand. The demand for this book is overwhelming, and exceeding expectations, and because of that, the supply can’t keep up.
For those of you who’ve ordered a copy and haven’t received it yet, Dr. Mike asks that you let them know. He said as of 12/20/10, all orders had been shipped, and that the delay is because they just didn’t expect the sizable response that they received. (more…)
