The instant New York Times bestseller, now in paperback—a revolutionary plan that adjusts your body metabolically for fast and safe weight loss.
The 17 Day Diet is a phenomenal new diet program that adjusts your body metabolically so you burn fat day in and day out. It is structured around four, 17-day cycles:
· Accelerate—the rapid weight loss portion that helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system
· Activate—the metabolic restart portion with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed body fat
· Achieve—this phase is about learning to control portions and introducing new fitness routines
· Arrive—a combination of the first three cycles to keep good habits up for good
The variation that Dr. Mike calls “body confusion” is designed to keep your metabolism guessing; each cycle changes your calorie count and the food that you’re eating to keep your body from hitting the plateau that so often occurs on even the strictest diet regime. This is not a diet that relies on a tiny list of approved foods, grueling exercise routines, or unrealistic calorie counts that leave you hungry and unfulfilled. Dr. Mike recognizes that a diet can only work if it’s compatible with the real world, and his program features usability as a top priority.
The 17 Day Diet is a simple plan that gets big, long-lasting results. Its blend of sensible advice and powerful motivation helps readers focus on their goals and start seeing lasting results fast.
