New weight loss plan, `The 17 Day Diet`, goes viral

A new diet plan that promises to help people lose weight for a lifetime has gone viral, after appearing on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and even on DVD.

Dr. Michael Moreno, the diet`s creator and author of the book, `The 17 Day Diet`, said people who follow his plan will achieve results that will last for a lifetime.

Moreno said each cycle unfolds in 17 days because that`s right before the time when the body starts to recognize the diet as a habit and metabolism starts to slow as a result.
