The 17 Day Diet was created by Dr. Mike Moreno. The diet is centered around four 17 day cycles:
Cycle 1: Accelerate– the rapid weight loss portion, which helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system
Cycle 2: Activate– the metabolic restart portion, with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed body fat
Cycle 3: Achieve– a phase that involves learning to control portions and introducing new fitness routines
Cycle 4: Arrive– a combination of the first three cycles to keep good habits up for good. On weekends, enjoy your favorite foods
Dr. Mike’s 17 Day Diet consists of specific eating plans for each cycle that create “body confusion”– it keeps your metabolism guessing. Many dieters see rapid changes in the very first cycle!

Transitional Day Fast
Dr. Moreno has updated the 17 Day Diet and it now includes an optional transitional day fast that one may use in between each 17 day cycles. This is how the one-day “fast” works:
At the end of each 17 day cycle, you have the option of a one day transitional fast. This fasting day includes a total of three specially formulated Fat-Burn Smoothies throughout the day — one at breakfast, one at lunch and one at dinner.
In addition to the three smoothies, you will also drink at least 8 cups of pure water and 3 to 4 cups of green tea throughout the day.
The new optional Transitional Day Fast promotes rapid weight loss through ramped up fat burning. Each smoothie contains the following fat-burning ingredients:
Matcha Green Tea Powder
Fruit and veggies
One may also choose to use an Optional Transitional Day Fast to get back on track after falling off the diet.
