Diets in Review Question

Why am I not losing weight like I thought I would on The 17 Day Diet when I'm following everything daily.

I'm going in to my 3rd week and I have only lost 3 lbs which I did in the 1st week. I am following the daily menu so something isn't happening for me, what is it?

This question is about The 17 Day Diet

Answers to this Question


Great question Sandy. We actually spoke with Dr. Mike Moreno, the book's author, this week and asked him this very question. Here is his response:

Dr. Mike says that for those experiencing a weight gain on the diet, rather than a loss, can likely chalk it up to one of these five reasons:

1. Underhydrated
2. Breaking the strict rule for "no carbs - like fruit - after 2 p.m.
3. Not practicing portion control, especially when the starches and carbs are reintroduced
4. Need to increase amount of time and intensity of cardio workouts
5. If you lift weights, use lower weights and more reps with longer wait time between each (muscle is heavier than fat and will cause a weight gain)
