Dr. Mike Moreno’s recent release of his updated version of The 17 Day Diet is timely since many of us include weight loss on our list of New Years’ Resolutions. It’s difficult to write a review of a book about weight loss unless you have actually tried the diet, which I did in 2012. My review is primarily based on my experience in following the diet described in the 2011 version of the book, but I also include feedback on the content and organization of the book itself. Of course, every person’s body chemistry is different and what works for one person may not be beneficial to another, but perhaps my feedback may be useful to you in deciding whether to look further into this diet.
