The latest craze to hit the internet is the 17 day diet. The 17 day diet makes some pretty substantial claims, which makes us go um. The 17 day diet consists of switching your food intake every 17 days in an effort to prevent your body from hitting the dieter plateau. This seems logical and is really the only thing we like about the 17 day diet.


The 17 day diet starts off by allowing you to consume 1200 calories a day for 17 days. for the vast majority of people 1200 calories is not enough to maintain your healthy. The miracle of this 17 day diet is that you lose 10-15 pounds in those first 17 days of the diet. This sounds appealing to most people, but this is not to mention that you will not be getting enough nutrients during those 17 days to function normally. Well unless you go into an induced coma for the 17 days. That would be a really great diet. the 17 days induced coma diet.

People might buy into it, but only 1200 calories per day is not going to be enough energy for you to perform any exercise and you will fell really bad. The psychological aspect of this is the you will likely quite just like all the other diets you’ve tried or you would not still be looking for this sort of information on the internet. Losing weight does not have to be hard, just eat sensibly and get a good exercise routine to follow. As long as you are burning more calories than you take in then you will lose weight and build you metabolism at the same time so once you lose the weight you will keep it off.

This is where a lot of people fail at diets including the 17 day diet which was on the morning show today. Its not the diet that allows you to shed those pounds its your will power that allows it. The diet is just a vessel, its you that must do the work. Eating correctly is a big part but its not all. You can eat 5000 calories a day, but if you burn 6000, then you must lose weight. Try to find a diet that gives you between 1400-2000 calories a day depending upon your current size and just workout. You will achieve your goals and allow you to get ready for swimsuit season in a healthy way.
