17 day diet
 
Has any one gotten the book yet?

Kiley2801 12-23-2010 02:10 PM

I have it. Looks like a decent plan. Nutritionally sound and all. I haven't decided if I'm going to do it or not, though.

I do know a lady who has lost 12 lbs in 11 days on it so far, though.

After Googling the diet sounds a lot like South Beach lol

Kiley2801 12-24-2010 08:04 AM

It's a bit similar. Its definitely more restrictive than South Beach though- esp. the first 17 days.

Just FYI - I got the book and the DVD and I am currently still reading the book - I used the DVD this morning - 17min ab cardio. It is more restrictive than SB but I think I need that right now and I am going to commit to do it BY THE BOOK - for 17 days. The ab workout is all standing abs and DEFINITELY cardio - I was sweating and I modified - alot! As far as the diet - he allows 2 fruits a day (none after 2pm) and most low carb veggies. The first 17 days he restricts the type of meats to mainly whites - turkey, chicken and fish. I don't see where you can have cheese at all, you can have 2 whole eggs a day and fats are limited to Olive Oil and something else - i can't remember....he discourages artificial sweetners and encourages you to get vitamins from whole foods not supplements. If you want to see how I do I will be journaling about it! I think 17 days is doable for me right now.

kind 01-06-2011 11:11 AM

I have re started the diet. Yes you can have egg whites - I haven't seen where he mentions egg beaters but they are probably fine. When you order the book there is an option for just the book or the book & dvd. Oh and I got it in like 2 days. It is low fat - only 2T of olive oil or flax oil per day. Two fruits from a specific group - apples, grapefruit, grapes, berries...do not eat fruit after 2pm. You can also have two low fat yogurts or kefirs per day. No grains. Cleasing, green veggies - typical low carb ones. Unlimited protein - from his list - there is no beef - fish, chicken, turkey... Exercise 2 times per day for 17 min in the am and 17 min in the pm for the first stage. Later stages increase the exercise and increase your food choices.

kind 01-07-2011 08:06 PM

Thank you Debbie.I will be watching if u post to see how you are doing. good luck.

He does allow carrots

Debbi 01-08-2011 06:12 PM

Yes - he does allow carrots - and I ate some at dinner tonight! There may be a few other veggies allowed that you usually don't see on Atkins - I will re-read that part tonight. I will really miss my butter - which I much prefer to olive oil. I looked for the yakult he mentioned and although I know I used to see it at WalMart, now that I can have it I don't see it anymore?...

kind 01-09-2011 08:13 AM

What is yakult??

Kaimi2008 03-29-2011 11:35 PM

subscribed and I'm watching 3 auctions on eBay for this book. :) Anyone tried it? ;)

sweetpea49 03-30-2011 05:34 AM

Thinking about trying this or Dukan. I find I need to mix my WOE up every couple of months.

eloise 03-30-2011 08:54 AM

started on this with my hubby on monday. got the beginning diet out of woman's world magazine. have not ordered the book yet. it is going good, especially because i love yogurt and a fruit here and there. it has only been going on 3 days and i am missing my beef, but i will tough it out.

Sammykatt 03-30-2011 07:11 PM

I would like to know how this how worked for anyone who has tried it!

Kaimi2008 03-31-2011 02:20 PM

I'm a sucker for diet books!! I just ordered the book off of amazon. :blush: :p

shari 04-04-2011 10:03 AM

I'm restarting today. :up: I tried it before and lost 7lbs in 7 days. My ex lost almost 30lbs in 30 days but he's a man so...:rolleyes: His transformation is what made me want to try it.

Question: I didn't know we're suppose to exercise twice a day? I thought it was for at least 17min/day but if you can do more then certainly do so. I've been averaging around 20-30 min on the treadmill..depending on time in AM. I don't have the book I read his for a weekend but plan to order soon...

sweetpea49 04-05-2011 05:36 PM

Bought the book!

Eloise/Shari -- how are things going?

sweetpea49 04-06-2011 08:56 AM

OK; I am going to start this on Monday. According to this schedule, I will be starting Cycle 3 Day 1 the day I leave for Italy. Since this is the most liberal of the plans, not counting maintenance, I should be OK. When I get back, it will be time to start Cycle 1 Day 1 again if I don't make my goal within the first three cycles (or 51 days).

Have a safe trip! :D Where are you going?

sweetpea49 04-06-2011 09:34 AM

Leaving on May 15 for Rome, then Florence, then Genoa, and finally home on May 30 from Paris. This will be my first trip to Europe!

Did you get your book yet?

No, hopefully by next week. :) I'm reading Protein Power now. :laugh:

I will let u know about the recipes. :) ESP...WW friendly. :laugh:

sweetpea49 04-08-2011 11:55 AM

I've officially 'pledged' myself to start this on Monday. Somehow the timing of the 3 primary cycles worked out with my work/life/vacation schedule. I've read thru Cycle 1 several times, made my shopping list and worked out a food plan. I have been easing into the diet by drinking the lemon water and green tea. Eating the 2 probiotics a day isn't a problem since I've been eating greek yogurt and cottage cheese on most days. I am not a big beef eater to begin with so limiting the proteins to chicken/turkey breast, ground lean turkey and fish shouldn't be too much of an issue. Maybe this will shake things up a bit. My scale has been stuck at 178.5 for almost a week; however, I do feel that my body is changing shape and belly fat is less.

kind 04-08-2011 04:13 PM

Walmart is now selling the book.
How is it going for those that are doing it.? Is there a website that is in book for people that are doing it and need buddies? That would be a good thing.

Good morning ladies, sorry I posted and forgot to come back but TOM came and kinda derailed me...I caved after having cravings then got back on, lost weight and gained again from the bloat! So I decided to just go with the flow (not cheat, but not all low fat either..more low carbish) until TOM subsides. It's heading out the door..good riddance...so I'm ready to re-commit again. Starting fresh today all low-fat and on plan. The one thing I kept up with is exercising..loving it again. :cool: I don't have the book but borrowed it for the weekend from my ex and wrote down some pointers.
