I have been on the 17DD since June and love it. It really is a good plan for lifetime change in spite of the name which can be deceptive. There is a great 17 Day Diet team on here.

"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat." -Jimmy Peņa

"17 day diet"...sounds like gimmicky crap that helped someone sell a book or a product.
Why not try the "BRBB34 life-time eating approach"? You profit...its customized for you...you make the rules...you get educated...and it doesn't contain unnecessary restrictions, arbitrary deadlines, and unachievable goals. :)

If you bring forth that which is within you, that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, that which you do not bring forth will destroy you.

Don't diet =] Stick to your spark recommendations. Slow and steady. And you won't feel like your ever really cheating as long as you track everything and stay within your recommended cals. I don't know hat the 17 day diet is but I don't like that it's a 17 day diet haha. Commit to a lifestyle change. I hated when people told me this when I first started and i def did not listen and went ahead and tried the dukan diet and then started severely restricting my calories... I am now slowly bumping up my cals after restricting for too long and still losing.
