Just cut out refined carbs and refined sugar/high fructose corn syrup and you'll see great results. There's no need to do a fad diet like this.


^^^THIS! We should all be educated enough to know the difference between some temporary fix to a long term solution, and an overall health style change.

Can you do this diet if you are vegetarian (Lacto-ovo)? I'm considering it but not if it is only for meat eaters!

oops, just read the list the woman put up and see that you can! Great! THanks!

can you eat shrimp in phase one? I am reading up on it (cant afford the book right now) but shrimp is high in protein and low in fat so thought it might be on the shopping list for phase 1. It looks pretty straightforward. Only veggies and lean protein and a couple pieces of fruit the first 17 days. Seems healthy to me and I will just make sure I get my required calories in :)

Thanks for the input on the foods, and the Whey protein information. I have been reading the book - and I have some modifications I am going to make - but the whole overall idea I like. I am going to journal my progress and daily notes on my blog so if anyone wants to see how I'm doing or follow it - just friend me. I am starting on Tuesday.

I got the book and started reading it last night. I am going to start the diet tomorrow probably. I hope it gets me losing faster again. It's not much different than I was doing except that I am going to eat more lean and no "junk" at all even sugar free ice cream (90 calories)

Trish -- according to the book, shellfish (clams, crab, mussels, oysters, scallops, shrimp) can be introduced in Phase 2. :-)

I just bought the book and plan on starting tomorrow I am usually not a fan of restrictive diets but my "eat whatever I want" mentality has given me a 5 lb weight gain I will be modifying it a bit by adding full fat yogurt and a few more healthy fats to up my calories since i do not have much to lose (about 20 lbs)

*peeks condescending head in*

This doesn't sound like a lifestyle change to me. Definitely not something you could do for life. It might jumpstart your weight loss but what about the long run?

If you go through the "groups" section on Mfp, there is a couple of groups with the 17day diet, they have pretty high numbers of members if that helpsflowerforyou

Side note to any people recommending SOYnoway it effects your metabolism and will work against your weightloss. Read up on soy before you start leaning on it as a meat, milk and dairy substitute*happy

* SOY is also in almost all processed foods as a filler which works against "clean eating" and any other healthy regimen. If you wouldnt cover your food in Lard or high fructose corn syrup, dont pour soy over everythingnoway

"I have just started this 17 Day Diet and I think it is great. Don't feel hungry at all and have already started loosing weight. Does anyone know if you can have black bean sauce on your stir fry in Cycle 1smile "

I have been doing the 17 Day Diet since March 12, 2013....I've recently kind of fallen off the bandwagon but am trying to get back on! I'm suppose to start Cycle 3 tomorrow! Black Beans are not allowed in Cycle 1 but they are allowed in Cycle 2, gives you something to look forward to :) Good luck with the "diet" stay strong, don't give in to cravings like I did, go for results!!

For those who have not taken the time to read the book and followed it carefully, please see the article below. It's a good summary and it includes nutritionist comments. Before calling this a fad diet and not realizing it's a life-style change (I hate that term but don't know what else to call it), please, please read this:

I read the link.

It's a fad diet and does not teach how to maintain a healthy lifestyle post-diet.

Next!

I did this diet a year ago and only did cycle 1. I lost 12 lbs in 2 weeks and have maintained that weight using pretty much the basics from cycle 4, the maintenance cycle. It changed how I have eaten completely. It was a fairly easy diet to stick to to as well.

can we get it online?
