Why I Wrote this Book
Raise your hand if you resolve to lose weight each New Year—or spring, or summer, or fall—but fall back into bad habits soon after. When I became Editor in Chief of Reader’s Digest, I resolved to use this magazine’s legacy of curating and condensing content to simplify weight loss for you, to allow you to focus on the essential weight loss advice that really works.
So I sent the staff on an odyssey to analyze decades’ worth of weight-loss studies, reviewing cutting-edge nutrition advances and filtering out gimmicks and fads. We discovered new reasons fat creeps on—and reliable ways to release it, so you lose weight more easily. That’s how we created the book The Digest Diet.
