After seeing 2 of my co-workers have great success with this diet, I finally decided to do it myself since I never lost the baby weight from having my 2nd child. So I played it safe and bought this book with a few other weight loss books so I could mix and match the information to suit me just in case 1 of the diets was too hard for me to stick to.

Right now I'm midway through the 2nd cycle, but at the end of the 1st 17 day cycle, I lost a total of 13 pounds. I did some tinkering around with some of the other diet information I learned however, so I didn't do this strictly by the book.

The 17 day diet is a branch off of low carb diets. The first of 4 different 17 day cycles is the hardest and requires you to eat a lot of chicken, turkey, fish, and vegetables. So if you're a picky eater and like to eat a lot of different things, this may not be the diet for you.

Because of the lack of carbs, I had a headache, a bit of brain fog, and was more tired than normal for the first 2 days on the diet. But after tinkering a bit, my body adjusted and I was fine after that. You'll also add back the carbs in the other 3 cycles so don't worry if you're a big carb addict with a sweet tooth or in need of starchy foods.

Learn to like green tea. I wasn't into it before this diet, but I've gotten used to it. No big deal. You have to get away from sodas and diet sodas. Sodas are loaded with useless, empty calories and diet sodas have aspartame in them.

Also on carbs, you'll end up eating most of your carbs in the morning, which is great advice.

For exercise, the 17 minutes of walking each day is sound advice for people who never exercise, but for me it wasn't enough.

All diet books cater to these notions: you'll lose weight fast, it'll be easy, and only THIS diet book has the proper secrets to success. The 17 Day Diet fits those criteria.

The difference between a quality diet book and a scam is that some leave the reader properly informed about the foods that make us thrive and have a normal body weight (South Beach Diet, Zone Diet, 17 Day Diet), and some are based on fantasy premises, such as that your blood type makes a difference, your ethnic background makes a significant difference, or your astrological sign makes a difference. The 17 Day Diet is a quality diet book.

The keys to sustained weight loss (30 lbs. or more, maintained for longer than TWO YEARS, not six months, or one year) are established by good research. You don't need to buy a book to accomplish the requirements: proper diet, and physical activity. I'm a family physician that lost more than 30 lbs. 16 years ago, and have kept it off. I did it by following the research based information noted long ago in a Scientific American article. And I'll give you the info for free in two parts:

Food: Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meat and fish. Stay away from the white stuff (bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, sugar). Even more simply put by Michael Pollan in his books: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly vegetables.

Exercise: Here's the rough part: people that have lost 30 lbs. and kept it off for more than two years AVERAGE an hour of physical activity per day. Lots of ways to get this done, often creativity is required. I have patients that are long-haul truckers and traveling salesmen that, against formidable odds, are thin and healthy.

I started the 17 Day Diet on June 1, 2011 and my life has not been the same. I have always been a "big girl" - in high school I was a size 16/18 and I hated myself. Over the years I have gained and lost several people; until the 17 Day Diet (highest was 297 lbs).

I had lost a few pounds before starting; however, since starting the 17 Day Diet, I lost 30 lbs in the 1st 3-4 months. All during this time, I never left phase II (that's what I call it) until I lost 40 lbs. I went down to a size 16 in May; size 14 by August; size 12 by December (lost 2 lbs between Thanksgiving and Christmas) - no matter what celebration I attended, I always went right back on phase II the next day; and by May of 2012, I was a very happy size 10. Oh my goodnes...I have never been a size 10 - I think I was born bigger than that! I am not trying to lose anymore weight; but, it just seems to happen without really trying. I was only going to be a size 14 - I was very surprised that I have continued lose weight by just eating from this plan.

I now call this my eating plan. When asked what I did, I tell people I changed my eating plan - I really hate to call it a diet; but, I am very happy to share if questioned further.

My secret is dark chocolate (hated it until I purged my system of sugar in the first 17 days) and Skinny Cow fudge bars - Dr. Mike directed me to these in his book. Oh yes...I was a night snacker - so I eat my 2nd yogurt with ground flax (gives texture & good for you) before bed - toasted coconut is my favorite (Dannon 80 cal). You will be surprised at how much food you can and should eat to keep your body burning at a healthy rate. Another key - eat everything your supposed to, especially his 2 rules (2 eggs, 2 yogurts, 2 fruit, 2 tbs. olive or flax oil, and green tea).
