The Transitional Day Fast (aka smoothie day) is a new addition to the 17 Day Diet, as detailed in Dr. Moreno’s book The 17 Day Diet Breakthrough Edition.
The 17 Day Diet was slightly revamped in 2014 and 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 (or at the beginning) 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.
During Cycle 3, you can use the Transitional Day Fast every 7 days to help you burn fat quicker.
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.
Fat Burning Ingredients
The new optional Transitional Day Fast promotes rapid weight loss through ramped up fat burning. Each smoothie may contain some or all of the following fat-burning ingredients:
Matcha Green Tea Powder
Fruit and veggies
Why Use the Transitional Day Fast?
One may also choose to use an Optional Transitional Day Fast to get back on track after falling off the diet.
The Transitional Day Fast is not required, but optional.
Dr. Moreno advises dieters to try the optional day fast out to see if it works for you– only you know your body and if this technique is right for you.
