The Digest Diet: The Best Foods for Fast, Lasting Weight Loss

The Digest Diet is a 21-day weight-loss plan based on groundbreaking science and newly discovered foods and habits that help your body to release fat. Reader’s Digest sifted through all the weight-loss science to pick the foods, recipes, and habits that truly slim you down quickly and safely. We reviewed cutting-edge nutrition advances and myth-busting articles. We discovered some new reasons fat creeps onand reliable ways to get it to fade away quickly. The Digest Diet targets surprising fat increasers in three key areas—eating, environment and exercise—and gives you the tools you need to turn the tables and shift your body into fat release mode.



The eating plan is organized in three basic stages: Fast Release,

Fade Away, and Finish Strong. Every phase loads you up on fat releasers. But the calorie and macronutrient ratios shift in each so as to maximize fat release—and results!

Fast Release (12-minute exercise routine) is a four-day fat releasing jump start. The Fat-Release Workout combines both strength training and HIIT (high intensity interval training) into a 12-minute workout that’s amazingly effective for fat burn and muscle growth.

Fade Away transitions you into lean proteins and micronutrient-rich greens. For this 10-day stretch, you continue to have a shake a day, but the lean-and-green focus gives your

body what it needs to help you release fat and build muscle, while lowering your intake of carbohydrates for faster fat fade.

Finish Strong is the last week of the plan. The meals and recipes show you how to enjoy a balanced, healthy, wholefoods diet rich in fat releasers.

The Digest Diet provides a list of 13 fat releasers, which include Vitamin C, Calcium, Protein and Coconut Oil, as well as an easy cheat sheet of fat releasing foods that can be eaten during the diet, such as broccoli, grapefruit, mozzarella cheese, almonds, fish, beef, red wine, dark chocolate and avocados, to name a few.

Inside the Digest Diet, you will also find a 21 day meal-plan, 50 fat releasing recipes with full color photos, a 12 minute fat release workout, a fat release workout calendar, before and after success stories, “laugh it off” sidebars to help keep perspective and sanity, and a free online destination for tips, videos, shopping lists and daily food and exercise journals to help make your weight loss goals easy and achievable. www.digestdiet.com

    Have been really pleased with this healthy eating plan, July 3, 2012

    This review is from: The Digest Diet (Hardcover)
    My husband and I have been using this plan for a couple of months. He lost 13 lbs and has been at goal weight for a while now. I have lost 14 lbs and have about 9 more to go (and would have lost more had I not been a little careless the last couple of weeks during the “birthday parties and school is over” period). My husband ate pretty healthily coming into this, but I was a total carb junky. I found the breakfasts (mainly the shakes and the parfait) to be incredibly tasty, better than any “smoothies” I’ve had before, and I’m amazed that I can lose weight while eating cheese and nuts (quick and easy snacks). My husband loves all food, but I’m about a 6 on the picky-eater scale, and I have been surprised that I’ve really enjoyed most of the recipes. The Mexican soup was a little too spicey for me, but the squash soup is to die for, and the lentil and shrimp soups are not bad either. They have a batch of chicken that can be done up several ways, so we do that occasionally and then use the meat in a variety of dishes.

    The first few weeks do require some planning and learning new areas of the grocery store. But most of the recipes use the same stuff over and over (vinegar, pepper flakes, sea salt, honey, yogurt, peanut or almond butter, etc), and many of these just need to be bought once, and then you have them. Some of the produce is new to us (kale, escarole, etc), but once we found it, now we know where to look. I’m not a big salad fan, and fortunately there are a number of recipes that use produce but are not salads. I think they’ve done a great job of making sure there is enough fat and protein in each recipe to make it satisfying. I’m not hungry 30 mins later like with some produce-oriented recipes.

    Most of the recipes make at least 4 servings, and the soups make up to 10, so we make big batches and then freeze and do left-overs, and that greatly decreases the shopping and cooking time. At first I planned 4 days at a time, shopped, then cooked probably every other day. Now we can plan nearly a week at a time and have minimized actual cooking time even more (neither of us really enjoys cooking). The recipes are all pretty quick anyway – most can be done in 30 mins or less). And the thing I like best about them is that I actually know exactly what I’m eating since most have 5 or fewer ingredients, all made of “real food,” not processed food.

    One thing that could be a little challenging is that this diet is very dairy-intense which is great for me because I am at high risk for osteoporosis and love dairy. But one of my daughters can’t have much dairy, and my husband found it was causing a bit of binding up. So we have to modify it for them slightly.

    In general, we have both been really happy with this new eating plan, and I feel 1000% better about the quality of food I’m putting in my body.

    R NOLAND (BIRMINGHAM, AL USA) –

    This review is from: The Digest Diet (Hardcover)
    Tried this eating plan for about 6 weeks and really enjoyed it. I was skeptical at first because I knew, being only about 30 pounds overweight that I wouldn’t lose 20+ pounds but I did lose about 7 in the first 3 weeks and continued to drop about 3/4-1 pound a week. (I am a 55 year old female) It really should be called more of a healthy eating plan instead of diet. I have cut out sugar except for honey, all artificial sweetners, alot of the sodium in my diet, and most processed foods. It does start with a 4-day cleansing process with shakes and soup. That was a little tough because I was detoxing from all the sugar, etc. But I found the right combo of flavorings in my shake (peanut butter, strawberries/banana, cocoa, and cinnamon) and I have actually started to crave the shakes. (They are like 16 oz.) Anyway, 4 days of shakes and soup (I recommend the Mexican chicken soup) is not the end of the world. Some recipes I didn’t care for or I had to tweak the seasonings but I can repeat the ones I like (like seasoned baked chicken, pork chops, pork loin, and flank steak) as often as I want. But I encourage you to try some of the “out-there” veggies. My breakfasts now consist of oatmeal w/ strawberries, egg omelets, or peanut butter and strawberry wraps. I eat a turkey sandwich most days for lunch. When I go out I have learned to pick a good salad with grilled chicken and bring my own dressing (a recipe from the book). Once you figure out the foods that you should or shoudl not be eating you can be creative and create your own dishes .And, yes, I have to actually grocery shop. My local grocer has most of what I need with a couple of items coming from the “healthy” grocery stores. If you’re looking for a new way of eating without counting points or calories while losing a healthy pound or so a week, this could be it. But if you want to stick with sugar, sweetners, processed and fast foods this is probably not the plan for you.
