My path to healthier eating and correct portion size RE-starts today. I’m using The Digest Diet by Liz Vaccariello.
I read about this plan in Reader’s Digest and began the 21-day plan with my husband about a year ago. We were so good for so long but, oh well, time has shown that we’ve forgotten about our portion sizes and have been enjoying a bit more than our waistlines are comfortable with. So, as of yesterday, we restarted The Digest Diet.
The key to this eating plan is to eat foods that help release fat storage. Cayenne pepper, cumin, olive oil to name some of the ingredients used in The Digest Diet recipes. The first four days are made up of two smoothies a day, which are loaded with protein, and one meal of tasty soups (All recipes included in this book). On day five you move to one smoothie a day and introduce more dishes into your meal plan (Again, all recipes are in the book). What I didn’t take advantage of the first time around was the shopping list, and that was a mistake. One of the most important things you can do when participating in this healthy eating plan is print the shopping list!
Once you’ve printed the shopping list you should be able to find just about all of the ingredients at your local grocery store. Fred Meyer (Kroger for some of you) had everything we needed..
OK – Here are my basic stats: Height – 5’10″. Weight: 189 lbs. Let’s see where I’m at next Tuesday (November 12th).
