17 Day Diet: Is Body Confusion Good For Weight Loss?
Would you trust a man named Dr. Mike?
Ah, the holidays. At no other time of year can people eat 33 whole turkeys dipped in barrels of gravy and not expect to somehow gain weight. But, amazingly, that's what happens every Christmas.

Yeah, I know. It sounds like BS. Which it probably is. But hey, there's only one way to find out right?
According to some guy named Dr. Mike, the new 17 Day Diet designs a specific rotating diet scheme that changes your calorie intake AND the food you eat, creating something he likes to call "Body Confusion."
Dr. Mike says by switching up your eating routine every 17 days, you trick your metabolism into burning fat.

"As a physician I understand the great importance of weight control in our health," said Dr. Mike. "As a human being, I understand the frustrations, set backs and boredom traditional diets can bring. I created the 17 DAY DIET to address and combat these diet challenges, providing a safe and healthy way to jump-start weight loss fast and incorporate healthy habits into every aspect of our lives."
Whether or not this works, I don't know. But something tells me that making a habit out of tricking your body into doing what you want can't be psychologically healthy in the long-run. Why not just be honest with your body? That way you don't have to worry about IT trying to trick YOU in some moment of revenge.
