Hello, my name is Carolyn Dean, I’m a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor and I live in beautiful Maui. I’ve finished my 22nd health book, I have a free newsletter and I also have an online wellness program that you can join. And today in this series I’ll be talking about dieting. The 17-Day Diet is actually an online book and program. Dr. Michael Marino, our family practioner in California began this so-called fab viral online diet. It’s mainly a high protein diet, low carbs, low fat. So, there’s nothing new about it, except what Marino says is, every 17 days he’ll switch up the ratios of the protein, carbs and fat in the diet to keep your metabolism activated. Now there’s no science behind that, and actually becomes quite a complicated diet, but you actually have to set your ipod to tell you which aspect of the program you’re on. The first 17 days, very strict, 1200 calories, it’s mostly just animal protein and salads, and then the second 17 days add some more food, some carbohydrates, some whole grains and some fat. A lot of the critics of the 17-day diet say that the first phase is actually too strict, and that’s what a lot of these fad diets do. In the first segment of the diet, they’re very strict, so you lose a lot of water weight and then you get hooked on to the diet, and you think it‚Äôs working. What Marino added to the high protein [?] diet was the 17-minute workout. You do this workout every day and it helps to speed up your metabolism. But we all know that weight loss is not just about starving yourself. It’s about eating a good balanced diet, getting your exercise and actually when you look at the starvation factor, a lot of these diets when they ask you to take your vows and you’re 1200-calorie diet a day, they’re actually potentially flipping your metabolism into a starvation mode when your body will then hold on to any calorie again, because it thinks it’s in some sort of jeopardy, The mechanism of our bodies to hold calories when we’re under severe stress is part of a survival mode, So you’re not going to do very well if you go on diets that emphasis the starvation part of the program.

    This video is inherently dishonest. She fails to mention that fruits are included and says that it is calorically restricted when it is not. She also says the body enters into starvation mode on this diet. There is no scientific evidence whatsoever that supports this nonsensical myth that our bodies go into a starvation mode. This review is very dishonest and deceitful. I'm finding that to be quite common amongst vegans/plant food diets groups.

    Hi there, have you considered Bellyfattack yet? Just have a look on Google. There you will find a useful free video by an established physician revealing the way to lose unwanted fat. It helped Jane to lose her abdominal fat. Perhaps it will work for you as well…

    Wow, she is completely misinformed. She should try reading the book. I do not feel at all like I am starving myself.

    Read the book. These people are right; there is no starvation. No mention of calories and access to fruit and vegetables and lean proteins from the beginning. I had to up my fruit intake substantially on cycle 1 to two whole pieces or 2 cups of berries.

    Hi there, have you heard of "Belly Fat Quencher" (google it)? There you can watch a beneficial free video. This made it easier for Marcia to reduce her belly fat. Hopefully it will help you too…

    Try reading the book before you try to give a review. You have no idea what you are talking about, Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D. The 17 day diet is not a starvation diet and does not limit you to 1200 calories. I would appreciate a retraction of this video and an apology to Dr. Mike Moreno. Very disappointed to listen to this and mislead people that may have tried the diet but decided not to because of this untrue review. Do your job next time. Sheeesh!

    can I use a clip of this on my youtube channel, and I will give you credit for it?

    Read the book. I'm with skyluv51. You have veggies, yogurt, and, not to mention, fruit. I have done plenty of starvation diets and this is definitely not one of them.
