    I am wondering if anyone here has tried the 17 day diet or know anything about it. I hate to spend the money on the book until I know more about it. I need to shed a few pounds :thumbup:

    I wish I knew too. I've heard about it and am too cheap to buy the book.

    Haven't heard of this one. I'm officially going on the Weight Watcher plan starting next Monday. I'm so tired of my "muffin-top" & tight pants (and not tight in a good way).

    I am having trouble losing weight with my back problems because I can't do much exercise like I used to. I need a good quick start to motivate me to leave the not good foods alone! Isn't there an easy way? :(

    Dr. Phil just had a show today about it.
    I didn't watch it though, I was on the phone. So I can't tell you anything about it.
    But if it hasn't played yet in your area, it should soon.

    I agree with you....you can't gain weight if you are not putting it in your mouth!

    Shoot, I'm already at work with no way to record the show. Guess I'll have to check it out on his website and wait for everyone to talk about it here.

    I seen it on both Dr. Phil and on the Drs. I just ordered it a couple days ago. Not getting the meal plan though can't afford it. I should be here some time next week. Hubby and I are going to try it.

    I watched the Doctors show when they talked about the 17 day diet. A lot of it was choosing better fruit/veg/food options instead of bread/sugar items. Sounded great and like a lot of common sense.

    I sure hope you will let us know more about it once you get the book. My understanding is that the diet changes after so many days which is suppose to fool our metabolism and makes for weight lose. Wish the book could be bought at book stores so we could kind of tell if it is something we think would work for us.

    I've never heard of it. Maybe you could see if the library has the book so you can check it out before investing in it? I do that quite a bit with books.

    Wish the library had it. It is fairly new and can only be bought through a certain site. Did hear that it could be bought through Dr. Phil's site also.

    Sounded interesting - change eating plans every 17 days. For now you can not buy the book locally - what a bummer.

    We got just the book and cd. Starting the diet tomorrow can't wait to get started. I know it is going to probably be tough for the first week or so not eating what we want or when we think we are hungry. But learning what is good for us and what is not makes me all the more excieted to start and get going. By the why my dh and I are both going to do this. Of course he has a little more weight to loose than I do but we are doing this together and be each others supporter. I will keep you informed of how things are going with this diet.

    WW is the only way to go.... My new d-i-l has lost over 40 lb. Several years ago I lost 17--back to my wedding weight (almost). I just pay attention to points whenever I need to drop a few... not a problem. Their new Points Plus program is even better than before. I get 29 points a day and all fruit and nearly all veggies are 0 points. It's a life long change. You just can't go wrong...
