Lunch Smoothie Recipe for the Transitional Day Fast for the 17 Day Diet

Dr. Moreno has now included the optional Transitional Day Fast as part of the diet to help you burn more fat.

Here is the lunch smoothie recipe for the 17 Day Diet.

Lunch Smoothie Recipe for the Transitional Day Fast for the 17 Day Diet

If you’re not familiar with this new addition to the diet, the 17 Day Diet went through a major “breakthrough” in 2014.

The Transitional Day Fast is basically one day of fat-burning smoothies in place of your regular meals.

The smoothies are meant to jumpstart your weight loss.



Lunch Smoothie Ingredients

This lunch smoothie is pretty straight forward.

Its ingredients contain low-sugar berries, a serving of fiber to keep you fuller longer, and low-fat yogurt for a bit of bulk, plus the much-needed protein!

Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find in the lunch smoothie for the 17 Day Diet.

If you’re familiar with the 17 Day Diet, then you might know that almond milk is an approved cycle 3 food.  

Almond Milk is an ingredient for the lunch smoothie for the 17 day diet

However, remember the Transitional Day Fast smoothies have their own separate rules.

If you need a quick refresher, check out the rundown of the Transitional Day Fast.

Try my homemade almond milk recipe if you’re looking for something without all the added yucky ingredients.

Substitutions for Certain Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients

It’s always best to make the smoothies as-is. The doctor formulated the smoothies with certain ingredients for a reason.

However, if you’re not a fan of strawberries, opt for blueberries or any other low-sugar berry in its place.

Whey Protein Powder for the 17 Day Diet Smoothies

The recipe calls for vanilla flavored whey protein.

The problem with this is that many, if not all, flavored protein powders will contain either sugar, artificial sweetener, or a combination of the two.

I highly recommend using a non-flavored whey protein. I use Jarrow’s unflavored whey protein.

Jarrow’s also offers a grass fed protein powder.

Jarrows Unflavored Whey Protein is what I recommend for smoothies for the Transitional Day Fast for the 17 Day Diet

When you’re using an unflavored powder, you’re not only eating a cleaner processed food, but you’re also able to control the flavor of your smoothie.

Other Transitional Day Fast Smoothie Recipes for the 17 Day Diet

You can also find the other two recipes for breakfast and dinner for the Transitional Day Fast:

What Cycle is this Lunch Smoothie Approved For?

As I mention above, this lunch smoothie is part of the Transitional Day Fast when you drink three smoothies a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

The Transitional Day Fast can be used in between each cycle or when you have a bad few days and want to jump back onto the diet and need a quick boost in weight loss. 

If you decide to drink this lunch smoothie outside of a Transitional Day Fast, then it would be appropriate for Cycle 3.
