The Digest Diet Kicks Off 2013 With a Big Win for Weight Loss

Sure, I’m a little biased because I work at Reader’s Digest and have seen my incredible co-worker Adrienne Farr shed over 60 pounds on the Digest Diet plan, but I was still amazed when I read this piece in the New York Post the other day. The newspaper challenged people to try different weight loss plans during the holidays to see which diet book led to the biggest success. From losing baby weight to kicking carb and caffeine cravings, The Digest Diet came out on top with the two panelists who followed the plan—they lost a whopping 41 pounds in total.

And best of all? Nelida Fernandez, one of the panelists and plan’s newest devotees, shares, “Everything is available at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s… You don’t have to do shakes or buy products from a company.”

Read the full story here.
