How Strange is this???
This Morning I watched an old episode of dr Phil and they had 2 people following the 17 day diet......and it had me curious....
It looks like it would be a really good book. I like that fact that it has 4 faces....start off hard to motivate 1200 cal/ day and who can't stick it out for 17 days? Then u increase to 1500 which is maintainable.....
17 min of exercise a day is also doable.
I have been looking for something for me and my daughter (14) to get started on and this feels like it would be a great start.
Have u bought the book?

Well...from what I've read so far, there are 4 cycles of 17 days and each cycle you eat different foods. The first phase is activate where you eat lean protein, fruits & veggies, and drink green tea at every meal. It actually seems healthy and the meal plan is by far the easiest to follow that I've seen. I'll let y'all know how it goes as I progress along.

You 're right. Nothing can be better than healthy eating and exercising regularly.

I haven't heard of it, but I tend to dismiss this type of plan - if you do lose the weight, it'll come back as soon as you go back to a regular diet.

I know not all of them are total gimmicks (I was actually impressed by Jorge Cruise's "8 Minutes In The Morning" - a combination of good eating habits & daily exercise bursts), but I'm still pretty heavily skeptical

I also have seen this on Dr Phil, but don't remember what it was about. I bet you can go on Dr Phil web site and search for it.

Has anyone heard about this? I know of a few acquaintances who have tried this and lost weight. I'm just wondering if any of y'all have tried it.
