“We’ve all pledged, promised and bullied ourselves to eat better and exercise more, but so many times even the best intentions fall short. I incorporate healthy habits into my work and home life and you can too.” –Dr. Mike Moreno

If you need to shed pounds fast and in a safe, effective, and lasting way, this is the book for you! Unlike many diet programs that starve you down to size, Dr. Mike Moreno’s 17 Day Diet relies on proven methods to help you take weight off and keep it off for good—whether you’ve got 10 pounds to lose or 100. His revolutionary program adjusts your body metabolically so that you burn fat day in and day out. The program is structured around four 17 day cycles:
Accelerate—the rapid weight loss portion that helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system

Activate—the metabolic restart portion with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed body fat

Achieve—this phase is about learning to control portions and introducing new fitness routines

Arrive—a combination of the first three cycles to keep good habits up for good. On weekends, enjoy your favorite foods!

Each cycle changes your calorie count and the food that you’re eating. The variation that Dr. Mike calls ‘body confusion’ keeps your metabolism guessing; this means that you can expect big changes in the first 17 days alone!

This is not a diet that relies on a tiny list of approved foods, grueling exercise routines, or unrealistic calorie counts that leave you hungry and unfulfilled. Moderation and proper portions are key factors in the 17 Day Diet—the trick is to figure out the foods and routines that work best with your real lifestyle. That’s why the book is filled with tips for how to avoid the usual food pitfalls like holidays, eating out, or even just a tempting candy jar. Along with a comprehensive explanation of how each segment works, every phase comes with an extensive list of foods, recipes, and sample meal plans to help m...

  • A diet that was easy to do and worked!!

    Have purchased two more books for family & friends to have; plus, have loaned my book out a couple of times. Those that used it seriously have been successful at losing and keeping the weight they lost off. I ate "Salmon" for the first time and enjoyed it!! Will always go back to this diet for control. Many thanks!!

  • Would recommend to all!

    This book is very easy to follow. There are great meal plans and recipes so even those who don't really cook can follow this diet. It's basically a diet that focuses on 17-day cycles, so don't expect to be done after just 17 days. The gist of this diet is to eat low carbs and avoid simple sugars and to be aware of "metabolism confusion" - basically to eat a variety of healthy foods to keep your body guessing and working to burn calories. This book is the first diet book I actually bought and am very surprised by how simple it is to follow. This will be my new way of eating from now on!

  • A diet worth trying

    Dr. Moreno clearly explains the diet in the first chapter. The book is an easy read. Each cycle of this diet is 17 days long, and varies in the types of food allowed for each cycle. Having been on South Beach diet already for several years, it was easy to change directions and try another diet for a welcome change. I have been focused and followed the diet without exceptions, and after the first cycle lost 5 pounds. I use the book as a reference often several times a day.

  • Really works

    My sister-in-law had this book on her coffee table and I took a look. I was intrigued so bought a copy for myself. In less than 2 months my dear spouse has lost 15 pounds. Really. I have lost 8. He has more to lose than I, but I am more pleased at no cravings, no hunger and lots of energy. I would recommend this for your internal health (triglycerides, cholestrol, etc) if not for the weight loss!
