In Cycle 3 you’ll introduce new foods such as pasta and bread. Can I get a YIPPEEE? This is always the favorite cycle, but also equally as scary with the new food choice. I’ll give you a 17 Day Diet Cycle 3 Meal Plan for one day so you know what I’m talking about!
It’s in Cycle 3 of the 17 Day Diet where you’ll learn better eating habits and making healthier choices. Think of Cycle 3 as more of a “mental” game than anything.
