This is the first cycle of 17 days that helps to flush out the sugar and fat storage from your system. Most people will see the most weight loss from this cycle.
This is the metabolic restart portion, with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed more body fat.
This phase involves learning to control portions and to change up those fitness routines.
This is where we combine the first three cycles to keep those good habits going for a lifetime. Eat super well during the week and on weekends enjoy your favorite foods

Yes, it does take some work and accountability to be successful. At the end of this program you will have learned that the correct food choices, pleasure foods in moderation and proper portions are key factors in the 17 Day Diet. The trick is to figure out which foods and routines that will work best with your life style!
