3 Easy Ways to Lose Fat on the 17 Day Diet

Losing fat on the 17 Day Diet shouldn’t be as difficult as many try to make it. 

With some basic principles you can make progress toward fat loss without any major effort.

Members of the 17 Day Diet Community who incorporate these three tips, along with sticking to the 17 Day Diet, report losing up to 12 pounds in their first 17 days.

Since it’s first publication, I’ve updated this list of three items to include water (previously the list was to exclude wheat, but decided to remove it as the 17 Day Diet promotes wheat in Cycle 3).

Here are 3 easy ways to lose fat while on the 17 Day Diet.

1. Avoid White Food To Lose Weight

If you’re looking to shed some pounds, avoid “white” food. Yes, really.

White food that you want to avoid includes sugar, white breads, pastas, many cereal products, and even crackers and potato chips.

Avoid white foods such as flour, sugar and rice if you want to lose fat on the 17 Day Diet

A few other white foods to try to avoid (or reduce your daily intake) are foods like white flour, potato products, white rice, and even processed milk and cheese products.

Some white foods that are OK for you to eat are cauliflowers, fish, and chicken.

Most of the white foods to avoid include processed foods that are super starchy or contain a lot of sugar in them.

Have you noticed that the 17 Day Diet doesn’t promote a ton of “white” foods. Instead, you’ll find foods on the cycle food lists such as whole wheat breads and pasta.

2. Avoid High Caloric Drinks and “Diet” Sodas

Another way to lose weight is to stop drinking sodas and other drinks that have high calories, sugar, or even artificial sweeteners.

I used to be addicted to diet soda and when I stopped drinking them, I noticed a ton of benefits, including losing weight.

Rather than drink your calories or the highly addictive and harmful artificial sweeteners found in “sugar free” or “diet” sodas and drinks, fill up on water instead.

After all, water is the foundation of good health and weight loss.

3. Drink More Water

To emphasize in the previous point, getting your water intake up where it needs to be will do wonders for your weight loss.

If you find you’re struggling with the scale not moving, chances are you need to drink more water.

In addition to helping you lose weight, drinking plenty of water will also help your skin stay hydrated as well as other benefits.

Take in at least half the weight of your body in ounces of water. This means that if you weigh 250 pounds, you should be consuming 125 ounces of water every day.

This will be essential for getting the fat loss process in gear.

These three rules are pretty easy to follow, aren’t they?

Sure, you’ll have to adjust your habits a little bit, but it really won’t be very hard once you get started.

The first cycle of the 17 Day Diet is probably the most difficult, but you can do it. If you consistently adhere to these hints, you will be surprised at the progress you make in just a couple weeks.

  1. Cream of Wheat is allowed, but in article “3 Easy Ways to Lose Fat on the 17 Day Diet” it says to stay away from all wheat products. Please explain. Thanks.

    • Hi Lori. The article about wheat is an opinion on many diet and health care practitioners. Just because a food item is on a list doesn’t mean we need to eat it. Same concept as another article I wrote: In Cycle 3 you are allowed to eat starches after 2p. However, Dr. Moreno explains that if you stop losing weight in this cycle, consider NOT eating carbs after 2pm. Same thing with wheat products. If you want to lose weight faster, consider not eating them. Hope this helps.
