The Digest Diet: The Best Foods for Fast, Lasting Weight Loss is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
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

To prove the 21-day eating plan truly works, we put a dozen men and women on the diet—and their results will astound and inspire you. Our top tester lost 26 pounds in 3 weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced Diet These are very healthy recipes and no food group is cut out. Very tasty, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great advice and tasty recipes! This is a very good approach to eating, it gives you healthy fats, like coconut milk and avocado, so you don't feel too hungry and get lots of energy. Haven't felt so good in a long time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Remotely Worth It I must say--this book sounded SO good, following so many of the things that my husband and I have learned this past year. However, once you get into the actual diet--it is virtually impossible! I mean, my husband and I eat many, many healthy things, but many of the recipes call for things that we had no idea what they were, and even the grocery store attendants didn't know. I do like the idea of having all 21 days of the diet completely laid out for you, but in the long run, this has to be one of the most complicated, and non-duplicatable diets I have ever seen. Some of the recipes were great, others bareable, and still others--couldn't force it down. Great ideas for excercising, and lifestyle changes, but as far as the diet part goes--EPIC FAIL. It also doesn't make sense that my husband, who weighs more than 100 lbs more than me, would eat the exact same portions of everything. There was only ONE person on the "testing" that lost 26 lbs, and he was over 300 lbs--unfortunately that allows the book to claim that on the cover. The average weight loss by everyone included in the book from their own test was 7-11 lbs. Simply not worth the headache.

Rated out of 5 by from And another thing--it does not make sense that my husband and I would be eating the same amounts of everything when he weighs 100 lbs more than me.
