Adding three brand new chapters, new strategies throughout, and more recipes, Dr. Mike Moreno ensures that his simple 17 day plan gives new dieters the most up-to-date scientific and medical tools to help them lose weight fast while giving veteran 17 Day Dieters more control and more choices as they shed pounds or maintain their ideal weight. The plan is structured around four 17-day cycles: Accelerate--The rapid weight loss portion, which helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system Activate--the metabolic restart portion, with alternating high and low calorie days to help shed body fat Achieve--a phase that involves learning to control portions Arrive--A combination of the first three cycles to help you keep good habits for good.
