I have been on the 17 Day Diet (Dr. Mike Moreno) for the past three weeks, and am having a slow, steady loss. I am feeling much more energetic than usual, and my usual carb cravings have all but disappeared. Has anyone else been on this diet? Any tips? Any good recipes?

I had to look that up. How are you doing it veg when it calls for lo carb, which includes lean meat for protein?

What things would you sub?

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

One-half cup of tofu (any type)
One-half cup of beans, lentils or any legume
1 to 2 vegetarian or black bean burgers (made from textured vegetable protein)
2 to 4 ounces of any vegetarian cheese, including soy cheese
2 vegetarian "sausage" links. This is a great substitute for eggs!
2 scoops vegan rice protein powder. This is great for smoothies. Blend with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and a fruit for a quick 17 Day Diet vegetarian breakfast
Any type of vegetarian meat substitute made from textured vegetable protein (see package for serving size)
For dairy substitutes: 1 serving is 1 cup unsweetened soy milk, almond milk or rice milk
For yogurt substitutes, it is fine to use soy milk yogurt
