For me, Cycle 2 of the 17 Day Diet was a bit confusing at first. I wasn’t sure exactly what to eat, so if you’re in the same boat, we’ll go over a 17 Day Diet Cycle 2 Meal Plan so you get a good idea of how it works and a plan to get started.
To give you an idea of a typical Cycle 2 day, here’s a 17 Day Diet Cycle 2 meal plan along with a list of Cycle 2 recipes for one day of Cycle 2.
Remember, in this cycle you’ll alternate between Cycle 2 food list days and Cycle 1 food list days – this is basically alternating between high and low caloric days. (Make sure the next day you switch back to the 17 Day Diet Cycle 1 Meal Plan.)
I go into greater detail on how each day of Cycle 2 of the 17 Day Diet works in my step-by-step overview of the 17 Day Diet, so you can read up on that if you need a refresher.
As always, if you follow the 17 Day Diet Cycle 2 Food list, it’s easy to formulate a Cycle 2 day (every other day on this cycle).
Here’s a Cycle 2 typical menu when you’re on a high-caloric day (revert back to my Cycle 1 Sample Menu for your low-caloric day):
