Dr. Moreno has updated the 17 Day Diet in his newly released book The 17 Day Diet Breakthrough Edition.
One of the major changes is the optional Transitional Fast Day.
If you haven’t read about this change, you can read about it now before proceeding (or watch this cute video I made for you!).
As part of the optional Transitional Fast Day, between each 17 Day Cycle, you have the option to fast for one day — this includes drinking three smoothies – one for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner.
In addition, you’ll continue to drink eight 8-oz glasses of water and 3-4 cups of green tea for the entire day.
Here are the recipes for the smoothies for the Optional Transitional Fast Day:
Breakfast Smoothie for the 17 Day Diet
The breakfast smoothie for the 17 Day Diet is the smoothie that probably contains the most sugar out of all of them. The main fruit ingredients are pineapple and banana.

Lunch Smoothie for the 17 Day Diet
The lunch smoothie for the 17 Day Diet combines low-sugar strawberries with unsweetened almond milk. This smoothie has added fiber to keep you fuller longer
Get the full recipe for the lunch smoothie for the 17 Day Diet, plus my recommendation for a clean, unflavored whey protein that has no added sugar.
The dinner smoothie is a hit or miss with most who come into contact with it. It truly is a “green” smoothie with the addition of spinach.
