Book Review - The Digest Diet Cookbook

About the Book
In the New York Times bestseller The Digest Diet, Liz Vaccariello and the editors of Reader’s Digest sifted through the latest weight-loss science to develop a groundbreaking 21-day eating plan to help readers drop the pounds. Now, Reader’s Digest introduces The Digest Diet Cookbook, 150 all-new fat releaser recipes so readers can branch out with new meals but still maintain their weight loss results. The Digest Diet Cookbook, available now for $26.99 at and wherever books are sold, is a complete guide to change your life and boost your health in just 21 days with easy, delicious home-cooked meals — backed by the authority of Reader’s Digest, one of America’s most recognized brands.

The Digest Diet revealed 13 foods and nutrients that help the body shed fat quickly and healthfully. Reader’s Digest put a test team of a dozen real-life men and women on the plan and everybody lost weight – and raved about the food. In three weeks, the top male test panelist lost 26 pounds and 7.75 inches, and the top female test team member lost 18 pounds, 9.5 inches and more than 7% body fat. For those who haven’t yet experienced the diet, The Digest Diet Cookbook features the basics of the eating plan, including fast and healthy weight loss, to enjoy the same amazing results as The Digest Diet.

The cookbook uses real foods in delicious and easy recipes, including Chicken Piccata with Capers & Olives, Creamy Potato Salad, Mexican Breakfast Wraps, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pecan-Buttermilk Pancakes with Cherries, among other tasty meals that will help readers lose weight quickly and keep it off.

Highlights Include:

  • Buying and storing tips for the 13 amazing fat-releaser foods
  • Guidelines on how to mix and match recipes to make your own menus
  • Creative ideas for using leftovers and kitchen shortcuts to speed cooking time
  • New portable snack ideas for when you’re traveling, running errands, or just short on time
  • More than 50 full-color photographs
  • Daily menus for people who are vegetarian, dairy-free, or have other special needs
  • Inspirational stories from the Reader’s Digest test panel

“One year ago, as I sat down to write the original Digest Diet manuscript, I could never have imagined the lives it would change,” said author Liz Vaccariello. “The Digest Diet Cookbook is a response to the demand for new recipes, more menu ideas and the hope that more people will take the time to cook and eat at home.”

Whether you are new to The Digest Diet or looking to maintain your fabulous success, The Digest Diet Cookbook is all you need to get and stay healthy for life.

My Take on the Book
I made my first recipe from this look tonight and was quite impressed by the taste of the salmon that I made. The herb encrusted salmon that I did try was very tasty and very easy to make. If all of the recipes in this book was good tasting as this one I am truly looking forward to trying them myself. I is that the rest of the book was set up in such a way that you were able to develop your own 20 day program that will allow you to be able to maintain weight and lose weight if need be. There are even some great-looking desserts that were in the book, which I didn't think would be in a book like this. All-in-all in reading through this book I was very impressed with everything that was in it. I truly look forward to trying more of the recipes in the future and sharing them with my family.

This one I'll definitely check out. I get frustrated with diet books fairly easily, but this sounds like it has some additional features -- like how to store and how to do healthy snacks on the go -- that a lot of books don't seem to bother with.

Thanks for the suggestion.
