The diet is good when followed by the book but my big complaint is that you need to search the web for vegetarian alternatives. Sorry, but I am getting proteined out eating eggs and lean protein 3x per day.

Also, maybe my palette is off, but the BistroMD plan does not taste good. It tasted more like hospital food and not restaurant food.

Here is my BistroMD feedback:

1) I received dishes for 7 days that are Chicken or Turkey three times per day. There are lots of negative reviews of this diet plan from 2009/2010/2011 and they seem to still be accurate. Chicken 3x per day and lots of carbs (sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, fruit chutney) that you aren't allowed in the book. Most of the dishes are about 25-30g of carb and 20-30g of protein and 5-10g of fat and 3-7g of fiber. There are lots of negative reviews of this diet plan from 2009/2010/2011 and they seem to still be around food quality, selection and carbs not allowed in the book.

It is pretty obvious the foods are not prepared for this diet, they are a subset of the foods on the standard BistroMD diet. So why are we paying more money for a limited version of the existing diet. I paid $190 for 1 week and I think the standard program is like $150 for 1 week. For example I received all crepes for breakfast that contained chicken or sausage.

2) The food tastes odd and it due to really funky spices being used. You should follow the instructions to defrost the night before or else you will end up with mushy, runny and wet food. Not sure why but you end up with a pool of water in the bottom if you microwave when frozen. It tasted so much like hospital food that I found myself eating handfuls of greens with it in order to freshen up the meal.

Personally I think that frozen Kashi dinners taste much better than these.

3) I keyed these into Weight Watchers and this is what I got for the first two days:
Day 1: 24 points
Breakfast: Chicken and Mushroom Crepes (9 pts)
Lunch: Roasted Turkey and Fruit Chutney (7 pts)
Dinner: Grilled Chicken Breast Pomodor (8 pts)


Day 2: 18 points
Breakfast: Spinach Ricotta Crepes with Turkey Sausage and Sweet Potatos (5 pts)
Lunch: Meditteranean Chicken (6 pts)
Dinner: Grilled Chicken Breast with Garlic Veloute Sauce (7 pts)


4) My recommendation: the BistroMD diet plan delivers 900-1000 calories per day, really needs so fresh vegetables to make it feel fresh, and doesn't really follow the diet.

I like the diet in general but I recommend you cook the food yourself and also look to interweave vegetarian options if you are feeling proteined out. In 5 days, I lost 3lbs and my boyfriend lost 7lbs by following the book and preparing meals ourselves. I recommend choose 3-4 meals per week, cook them in advanced and then repeat them with a variety of vegetables and interchange them for lunch/dinner if you don't have the time to cook everything.

Perhaps the best and easiest diet I've ever did. Lost 35 pounds in 3 months and didn't few hungry at all, also no time to go to the gym.
I did order the BistroMd plan since I can't cook a simple egg and I'm still with them, switched to their regular plan though. The food is great and it really works.
You don't need to order the food if you can cook, but if you can, it's very practical.. just put the food in the microwave and you are good to go. Also they taste like fresh food, not at all like the frozen food you buy at the super market.

I am a vegetarian. Are there meal options for following this on a vegetarian diet? I like the idea of the meals since it simplifies life! However don't know if there is such an option for vegetarians.

Ok people please pay attention, you DONT have to buy any prepackaged food. you can get the book at barnes and nobles for $13 dollars, or walmart for $18 dollars, the book will tell you what to eat, very simple!! you can find sample menus online.

Love the diet, have not really been jumping on and off the scale so do not know exact amt of weight I have lost. Today is my 18th day and going to progess to cycle 2. I do know I am feeling very encouraged, I have lost a size in clothes which equals minus pounds. I am 58 yrs old and metabolism had slowed to a turtles pace, even tho I am a nurse and stay active, it wasn't enough to keep me burning. Have found this diet very helpful to get me motivated and feeling more energetic. Found a simple aerobic video for beginners and mix that up with a walk every couple of days and am fortunate to have a pool to incorporate a swim every few days. I am very busy and work double shifts a couple times a week, keep up with the grandkids. Meal planning is not easy but doable if you want to do this. After all it is your physical and mental health at stake. So, stay positive, smile and make the effort. It is paying off for me. Thanks Dr. Moreno.

Nowhere in the book that says you have to buy food from them.

I just stated the diet, so I cant comment on results yet, but I purchased the book from B n N for only13$. You dont need the DVD just exercise (walk) 20 minutes a day. Buy a large bag of chicken breast and a bunch of veggies and fruit, and your ready to go!

All well and good, but what if you're on fixed income and your rent is more than two thirds of your income? I would love to eat the way this diet advocates, and have tried similar health plans, the trouble is, I get too low on funds, and have to revert back to buying bread and kraft dinner type meals. And no, there is no one I can share a place with and share the cost of food. So I guess that means if I'm not already diabetic, it's certainly in my future since I can't change my diet unless my income changes. I am not able to hold down a job due to my health.

OMG PEOPLE!!!! You guys are killing me!! Research the doggone diet, there is nothing that says you have to buy meals, IT'S AN OPTION!!! All you have to do is buy the book and follow directions. Better yet, get a friend or two, split the cost and you all can share the book. All I'm saying is don't knock it with only hear-say information. Read it, try it for yourself, and then make your judgement. It's like any other diet book or plan, you have to dedicate yourself and do your part. There is no method out there that will do it for you with lasting results. I'm just saying...

Can you eat Weight Watchers foods on the 17 day diet? I have read a few comments where people are saying that you dont have to eat the food....just eat the ww diet foods? Is this Weight Watchers?

The 17 Day Diet is NOT a meal delivery plan. You can certainly sign up for the meal delivery plan, as one of these services is working in conjunction with this diet. This diet is based off of a BOOK...not just a meal delivery service. Sheesh.
