The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide and The Digest Diet Review

I received the below books free of charge for review purposes.

I recently received The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide and The Digest Diet, two books that offered some healthy eating tips for whether I'm eating at home or at a restaurant.

About The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide:

The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide shows you how to follow New York Times-bestselling diet book, The Digest Diet, anywhere you might eat on the go. Restaurants featured include favorites like: McDonald’s, Applebee’s, Panera Bread, Cosi, The Cheesecake Factory, Burger King, Starbucks, Subway and Chipotle, among many others.

The Dining Out Guide is a handy reference that lists numerous popular chains as well as menu items that are ideal for Phases 1 or 2 of The Digest Diet (see below for more information on The Digest Diet).

Despite not listing some of my favorite national chains, the book does give general tips for various types of establishments (e.g. Mexican, Japanese, etc.). to serve as a general guide on what types of menu items to order.

The book is small enough to fit in a purse, but if you don't bring the guide with you, you may not remember exactly what you should order, as many menu items need to be adapted (e.g. ask for an extra serving of chicken, etc.).  However, the guide does allow for some flexibility and does serve as a practical general guide.

It's also nice to see that fast-food chains are featured and that carbs are not off-limits!

About The Digest Diet:
The Digest Diet sifts out all the hype to deliver an exciting 21-day plan designed to help facilitate your healthy weight loss. We identified 21 of the most powerful, easy-to-do lifestyle changes that I'm convinced will help curb cravings AND help with weight loss.

I had never heard of The Digest Diet before, so I was very interested in learning all about it.

The book discusses Fat Increasers and Fat Decreasers, and then goes into detail about the 21-Day Fat Release Plan.

What I like about the plan is that it includes a lot of common sense rules, such as get enough sleep and don't go it alone.  The book also gives some real-life examples of people who tried the diet and lost weight, and I love the variety of recipes featured in the book.

As for the diet itself - I haven't tried it, as days 1-4  (Phase 1) of the plan involves replacing 2 meals a day with a shake, and that just doesn't seem like something I could do.  However, the subsequent phases do sound more manageable to me. Phase 2 allows you to eat foods in line with a Mediterranean diet.  Phase 3 expands food options while continuing to focus on healthy eating by consuming fat releasing foods.

Perhaps if I planned ahead and made sure I got lots of support and encouragement from others to not cheat on days 1-4, the diet may be something I would actually try, but I do think overall the book has a lot of great tips and healthy recipes, and I can't wait to try some of them.
