By now you may have heard about Dr. Moreno’s updated version of the 17 Day Diet. In his new book, The 17 Day Diet Breakthrough Edition, the doctor includes new fat-burning techniques to the 17 Day Diet.
One of these techniques is the optional Transitional Day Fast. To summarize, the new day fast is one day where you only consume fat-burning smoothies for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as your required water and green tea intake.
Recently, a question from a 17DD Blog Facebook fan was asked by Natalie B.:
I complete cycle 1 on the 17th. I plan to fast on the 18th. I have a dinner to go to for my husbands work on the 21st, at a home, of a couple I don’t know, so I have totally no control of what will be served to me. Am I able to fast again on the 22nd?
Here is my response to Natalie’s question about the optional Transitional Day Fast:
Natalie, in the new breakthrough edition book by Dr. Moreno, he talks about how you can use this fast day either in between each cycle or as a jumpstart if you have a bad day and need to get back on track (like over eating something that you shouldn’t have). I think use your best judgment. If you don’t overdo it and don’t gain any weight, continue on your C2. If you get out of control, do a fast day. Let us know how it goes!
The doctor further explains in his new book that this fast day is purely optional and only you know if this is something you can do. If you’re not sure if you can handle a fast day, you may try it to see how your body reacts.
