The 17 Day Diet
The 17 Day diet is a program where you cycle through 3 stages of eating (17 days each) , finally ending up at Cycle four or the ‘Arrive’ Cycle. The Arrive cycle is where you stay for the long term.
Except for the Cycle 1 the ‘Accelerate’ stage, this diet falls under the ‘Family Friendly’ category in that there is no reason the entire family would not be able to eat the same as what you are eating while on this diet.
Cycle 1 ‘Accelerate’
You are eating fish and poultry, low sugar vegetables and low sugar fruits
Cycle 2 ‘Activate’
You will alternate Cycle 2 and Cycle 2 days. On the Cycle 2 days you can have natural starches such as yams. You can also have more variety of protein such as pork.
Cycle 3 ‘Achieve’
This brings an expanded food list, as well as the occasional alcoholic drink
Cycle 4 ‘Arrive’
You will follow Cycle 3 during the week and eat a wider variety of foods on the weekend, foods not normally eaten by dieters! This is to shock your system by using caloric cycling.
