The real test of any diet is whether you can keep doing it for months and months and years, so hang in there. There are good reason's why there are thousands of "new" diets promoted every danged year. Weight loss industry is a 50 billion dollar a year business!!!

My husband and I have been following the Digest Diet and LOVE it! The first few days were a little tough but it has become MUCH easier! How are you doing on it now?
day 3 was ok followed the diet exactly--anxious to weigh tomorrow. Tomorrow is day 4 and then on Sat, I get to eat food. The diet is really different, but am willing to try anything to get this weight off. Exercised for 15minutes, thats a start.
day2 was ok except we were going out to dinner with friends and I didnt want to sabatoge my good start, so I had my shake at home and when everyone ordered I thought a salad would be ok. It probably would have been except I had the olive oil and vinegar dressing,no cal good choice, wrong. When the vinegar hit the undigested shake a war started in my tummy. I don't recoment this as a my tummy swelled, and I hugged the comade for several hours. Any one have a good idea for eating out and being complyant with the diet. oh well, every down side has an upside. I losst another 4 pounds.
I ordered the book today and it will be delivered on Friday. Have spent most of tonight looking for something like this to compare notes with others. I am not on facebook so I was sooo glad to find this page. I have an idea of how this works so I am going to fly by the seat of my pants till Friday. This months RD gave the recipe for a shake and the mexican soup but I don't know about how much is the right amount for the day. Will be anxious to see your progress.
I'm interested to see how you are doing on the Digest Diet. I started yesterday. I was a little hungry but not too bad. Today I've been more hungry but nothing I can't really handle. Just curious how you feel about it now. Thanks for your help!
Well, day 1 is off to a good start! I had the two prescribed shakes so far today -- first one for breakfast with strawberries and flax meal; second one for lunch with a banana. Al the other ingredients stay the same, change the fruit & change the fat ("|I'm relying on Tahini for now). They taste like they are made with buttermilk but the main ingredient is non-fat plain yogurt. They actually taste pretty good!
My snack today is part-skim ricotta in sections of a green pepper with some seasoning -- sounds like it will be a treat!
Dinner -- Kale and Chickpea soup with Feta cheese -- 2 cups is the dinner serving, and it sould fill me up! On the whole, it is a lot of dairy and vegetables -- not a bad set of choices for the first 4 days.
So, we'll see what four days of this eating pattern brings me and then, it is on to Day 5 -- the second part of this program!
I don't know if anyone will return to this thread, but I'm starting the Reader's Digest Diet tomorrow (yes, the day after Thanksgiving). I've bought all my ingredients, cleaned out my pantry and refrigerator, and figured if I began on a long week-end, I wouldn't have to work around the "workday" habits that will clearly need to change!
If I get any replies to this posting, I'll be back to let you know how it turns out!
Has anyone checked out the Digest Diet book? I checked out the ad but i am not sure it is a good plan. Talks about someone losing 11 pounds in 3 weeks. I thought that the maximum amount was like 1 or 2 pounds.
