While the 17 Day Diet has been getting quite a bit of buzz of late (including coverage on the Dr. Phil Show and The Doctors), that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the best choice or that it’s even worth trying. In this article, we’ll take a look at how this dieting plan stacks up to the popular Beachbody P90X program.
So, can you really lose weight with the 17 Day Diet? Of course.
The problem with many of the 17 Day Diet reviews you’ll read read is that these individuals are only after short-term results. Crash diets rarely (if ever) result in long-term weight loss, and I fear that the same might be said of Dr. Moreno’s 17 Day Diet program.
In my own personal experience, the real key to losing weight, keeping it off, and improving your overall health is lifestyle change. That means making difficult decisions, day in and day out, in order to improve your quality of life forever. In a nutshell, it requires consistent sacrifice and there are no shortcuts.
When it comes to weight loss, I’ve always avoided yo-yo dieting and short-term fixes, and I feel that caution should be exercised whenever one feels tempted by the latest “fad” diet that comes along promising huge results in very little time (and with very little effort).
Worthwhile weight loss only occurs when one learns how to incorporate healthy new habits into their lifestyle, such as knowing which foods to eat, how much to exercise, and how to structure a workout.
Let’s be honest. Does it really make sense to go on a crash diet, only to gain that weight back (and often times more) just a few months later? In my humble opinion, it does not — if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
It’s for this reason that I believe the P90X workout and Shakeology are the best programs on the market today for losing weight and getting into the best shape of your life. Tony Horton has laid out an extremely easy to follow fitness and nutrition blueprint which will not only assist you in losing weight, it’ll dramatically improve your overall health and quality of life as a result.
With P90X, you don’t have to rely on short-term (and often-times, confusing) eating cycles that will result in irregular eating patterns. Consistency and the changing of bad habits is at the core of P90X, and for this reason I continue to recommend it as the best way to lose weight quickly, safely, and naturally.
