I Started The 17 Day Diet

Have you heard of the 17 Day Diet? I just heard about the new plan and JUMPED at the chance to learn more. I am an AVID Dr. Phil watcher. I’m talking daily DVRing over here. One of the diets he’s spoken of a LOT in the past has FINALLY become available at Barnes and Nobles – The 17 Day Diet.

I wasn’t really into purchasing it online from their website (the ONLY way you could get it for about a year). SO AS SOON AS I SAW IT AT MY LOCAL STORE – I JUMPED! I did NOT want to pay shipping. How cheap am I? UGH. Well, now I have this book in my grasp and I am ready to take action.

With my membership – I got 40% off the book! So naturally, I SNAGGED the book right away. 

The long short – it’s 17 days of no carb and low fat. It’s hard – but you can do anything for 17 days, right? That’s the hook. Suck it up for a little over 2 weeks and lose between 10 and 15 pounds.

There are then 3 more cycles to go on before you can officially say you are done. But I’m interested in that JUMP START – which I REALLY need. Especially right before the summer.

A Look At My Meal Plan

So, last night I cooked potatoes to say goodbye to them (and to get them out of my fridge) and this morning I started to walk down this new path. For breakfast, I had a yogurt and an orange with green tea.

For lunch, I had fat free swiss cheese and turkey slices (a lot) with a pickle and some fruit. Again green tea. The man is obsessed with green tea.


Also went out about bought Omega 3 vitamins b/c I don’t eat any fish and he suggests it. I don’t know if I am going to keep up with the vitamins. I am the WORST at taking pills. I already take so many pills for my migraines.

The last thing I need to do is add more to my list. But then again, maybe if I take control of my health I can actually get off of my migraine pills, right? I mean – that’s the hope??

My Thoughts

So – My starting weight is logged. You have to hold yourself accountable while on this plan. You have to track everything you do, how much you lose, what your goals are, how much water you drink – etc. At this point, I’m not ready to share with you my progress because I feel like it’s too early for any of that.

But I will start to keep a log or a journal on this blog and write a diary of some sorts so you can see how the 17 Day Diet affects me and my body.  Please check back over the next two weeks to see how I do on this plan. I’m excited!

Hopefully, it works because honestly I am JUST DONE WITH THIS LAST 10 POUNDS! Is anyone else with me?? Why is the last ten pounds always the hardest? I am so tired of not being able to fit in my clothes!!!
