With a focus on eating low carbs, your body may develop a boosted metabolism, by adjusting your food components in a recommended proportion.

The whole purpose as advocated by Dr. Mike Moreno (who propounded this diet theory) is to rev-up your fat burning metabolism, lose extra pounds, and become healthy naturally.
Contrary to keto meals, a 17 day diet is followed as a series of diet plans that is adjusted and changed accordingly. In this diet, you mostly eat vegetables, low sugar fruits, probiotics, and friendly fats that accelerate your health and your body grows in a more natural manner.
You adjust your keto meals according to the pace and goal of losing weight. You cut on processed or refined foods altogether. At times you follow a low-carb diet and then you can go for high carbs, for a while.

1-Accelerate: To burn your fats drastically, you reduce your carbohydrate intake and focus on improving your digestion. Your calorie intake doesn’t exceed 1200/day. This helps promote weight loss from the start (around 5-10 pounds respectively)
2-Activate: In this phase you add natural starch intake and juggle with the first phase’s calorie count. By doing so, you reset your metabolism and prevent your body from plateauing and burn unwanted fats simultaneously.
3- Achieve: To help you stick to healthy habits, you get to eat some previously restricted foods in your diet plan. You get the liberty of eating but with control. On top of that, healthy food habits make sure you don’t start gaining fat again.
4- Arrive: Enjoying your favorites (in moderation) on the weekends and sticking to healthy food during weekdays, this sets-up a balance. Your long term weight loss goals get a good beginning thus.
