Here’s a great video in which Dr Mike Moreno explains phase one of the 17 Day Diet, the accelerate phase. He goes through some of the foods explaining how they can help with weight loss. Phase 1 of the 17 Day Diet is where weight is lost the fastest, the change in regime is designed to confuse your body into losing weight.
He’s totally right when he says “This doesn’t look like diet food, it really doesn’t” however don’t assume this diet will be easy (are there any easy diets?). That said much of the feedback says this diet is easier than others. He also touches on new research that shows you’re more likely to keep lost weight off if you lose it quickly, which contrasts with traditional thinking that says you should lose weight gradually.
