Which is why today we’re heading to Men’s Fitness where they have a listing of possible diets that you will need to give a shot this year. Among the diets you’re going to want to put on your to-do list over the next few months:
The 17 Day Diet
“The biggest inhibitors to weight-loss success,” says Mike Moreno, M.D., author of The 17 Day Diet, “are boredom and plateaus.” Structured into four 17-day cycles, this diet mitigates both. Why 17 days and not 9 or 23 or 42? “Between Weeks 2 and 3, diets seem to stop working. You hit a frustrating plateau and your hard work seems to no longer be worth it.” Your body is designed to become as efficient as possible, as quickly as possible. “When you first start a new program, the digestion process uses more energy to adapt, but as your body becomes accustomed to the new input, you burn less energy and thus your weight loss slows or even stops completely.” So, Dr. Mike, as he’s called, picked the median number of days, 17, and created a plan that cycles through four distinct phases with varying calorie counts and macronutrient ratios.
