17 Day Diet Challenge: Cycle 2 Activate Update

 Update on the Cycle 2 Activate Portion of the Diet.

I’ve been taking this time to taste different foods and keeping myself on tract.  I think for me I will do the last cycle of the program.  After reading about the arrive cycle or Cycle 4, I find I’m able to stay on track all week and enjoy some of the foods I really like on the weekend.  I’m still getting the benefits of losing weight during the weekdays and maintain the weight on the weekend ready to start fresh Monday Morning.

I will be updating you periodically about my progress.  I would like to be at a weight of 135 and find I’ll be able to achieve this on cycle 4.

Below Find information about the last Cycle and how you too can maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle!!

Cycle 4: Arrive

Arrive – Last but not the least is the final cycle of the 17 Day Diet plan. This cycle focuses on the right intake of food to keep the body weight and eating habit consistent. So the diet plan and meals are chalked out in a manner to sustain the new derived weight for a longer time.

Cycle 4 assumes you have met your goal weight. If you were lucky enough to lose all your weight in 51 days, this phase is about maintaining the new you. During the week, follow the guidance from cycle 1,2, or 3 and when the weekend rolls around, let loose. Moreno allows 1-2 favorite meals, and 1-2 alcoholic drinks daily on the weekends, but cautions dieters not to binge; he calls it strategic cheating. “If you only splurge a little, it will keep your weight in check and make it easier to get back on track on Monday,” Moreno says. He suggests weighing in weekly and when the needle goes up five pounds, return to cycle 2 until you get your weight back to normal.
