The 17 Day Diet
Most Popular Diets for 2011
Number 1: The 17 Day Diet
For the first time in the four years we've been publishing our Most Popular Diets of the Year list, the number one spot does not go to Weight Watchers. Instead, newcomer 17 Day Diet swept the title without giving them a fighting chance. The originally self-published book debuted in late 2010 to demanding enthusiasm, thanks to early appearances by author Dr. Mike Moreno on Dr. Phil and The Doctors.
In spring 2011, Dr. Mike sold the book to Simon and Schuster, and a second printing brought the total sales up to one million copies. Supplement titles including a Spanish version and a workbook have helped to maintain interest in the book. A cookbook is in the works for spring 2012.Next Slide 1 / 22
