Since moving to Ohio, my family is in a much better financial situation. We own our home and cars in full, and Dan just got a promotion. So things have changed here, since we can finally afford to go do things with the kids and we even get fairly regular date nights. Trust me....After almost 4 years of not having any alone time, these date nights are a very welcomed change!
Since we are eating out a lot more than we have in past years, I started to worry about keeping my diet on track. I have about 15 more pounds I would like to lose, and I know that a lot of restaurant food is like Jack Kevorkian to weight loss.
So when I discovered The Digest Diet and The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide, I was more than a little bit intrigued. You see, this is not like a lot of super-restrictive diets out there. The Digest Diet actually looks at the science of food, and pairing the right things for maximum benefits. (And of course avoiding the not-so-good things, too!)
There are even many foods that are labeled as "fat releasers" and "fat increasers". These foods, due to their natural make-up, either help us to quickly release the fat in our bodies, or they help add to it. There are so many different ways to incorporate the fat releasers into your diet, including several different herbs and spices. Who says healthy eating has to be boring, dull, or bland?!
There are also loads of delicious, nutritious, and satisfying recipes to try. No eating nothing but rabbit food or feeling deprived involved here. Just fresh, tasty, filling meals that keep your belly full and your diet on the right track!
There are also activity logs and more so you can track and customize your experience. I have found this to be very helpful, since it keeps me accountable.
Companion Book Just For Dining Out!
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.
Examples of “eat this, not that” at some of the restaurants include:
Decide on your vegetables before selecting your protein. Choose raw or steamed vegetables to avoid unwanted fat increasers like heavy sauces or butter. Otherwise, lightly sautéed or stir-fried veggies are a suitable alternative. Option: You don’t need to give up your Chinese food. You can order Eggplant Tofu with the side of Mixed Vegetables from Panda Express. The variety of vegetables – bell peppers, eggplant, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, green beans and zucchini – will fill you up, while tofu is a good source of protein.
· Think lean with proteins. Choose lower-fat cuts such as sirloin. Remove the skin from chicken before eating. Order fish grilled. And remember – restaurant portions are usually very big, so bring leftovers home! Option: Try the Roasted Garlic Sirloin at Applebee’s. Substitute roasted vegetables for the calorie-laden creamed spinach and potatoes.
· Ask how dishes are prepared and listen carefully for ingredients that are fat increasers, like butter or cream. Find out if the dish can be modified to be served without the high-calorie extras. Option: It’s easy to create your own healthy omelets at IHOP. Order two eggs with half an order of Swiss cheese, and throw in green peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms. You can also order a side of seasonal fresh fruit.
· Always ask for dressings and sauces on the side, or better yet, get rid of them completely. Option: Try the Greek Salad from the Cheesecake Factory (save half for later). Ask for an extra four ounces of chicken breast and skip the vinaigrette.
Overall, I am loving the Digest Diet. It's very easy to follow at home, and my family doesn't have to suffer. These recipes really do taste amazing. I love the fact that the ingredients work together to maximize fat burning and overall well-being. Having a little science to back up the diet definitely helps keep me confident, while educating me about what my body needs to thrive.
I also really love the Digest Diet Dining Out Guide. Since we do have regular date nights, it can be easy to fall off of the diet wagon. I love the common sense advice and tips this book gives about how to enjoy dining out without totally sabotaging dieting efforts.
I would definitely recommend the Digest Diet for those looking to lose a few pounds or just make better eating choices. This "diet" doesn't feel like a diet at all, and is very easy to stick to. Plus, it's incredibly informative and teaches how to nourish our bodies properly. Love it!
