      Most diets encourage drinking lots of water. I am curious why the Reader’s Digest Diet does not encourage drinking lots of water?

      I am beginning the Digest Diet way of life today. I have tried to download the Shopping List to no avail. Love to hear the pounds lost by everyone. Keep up the good work!

        I just started this diet 2 days ago, since I didn’t have the book yet I printed the lists off the Internet. For the shakes I used unsweetened almond milk,protein powder, banana, peanut butter, flaxseed, chia seeds and ice cubes, it was very good and filling, for the soup I made the Spicy Garlic- tomatoe soup with chicken it was very filling and tasted great. My snack I had 12 a red pepper with hummus, supper I had a shake. I drank lots of water and had 2 cups of green tea with no milk or sugar. The next day I had a strawberry shake etc. I am down 3 pounds. Oh, I also did the treadmill for 30 minutes each day. I would like to know if there are any sites I could go to we’re people on this diet can help one another. My goal is to lose 30 pounds, but I’m taking it one day at a time. I will follow this diet the best I can, but if I can’t find an ingredient or want to use what I have I will do that, I’m not stressing over having everything exactly like the recipe.

      I would like to see comments / questions with a recent date, not  9 or 10 months ago.  Are these people still on this diet or did they give up because of misprints in the “diet book”.  I am skeptical of starting this diet with the comments I have read here.

      I have to attend a luncheon on day 2 and cannot ring my own food.  How do I get around this?  I am thinking that if I have the shakes for breakfast and dinner and at the luncheon try to stick with soup and salad that may somewhat work.  Or should I just start over again the next day?  This will be a continual problem and I am not sure how you deal with these things!

      I just read the book.  I do not like their soup recipes.  Any suggestions:

        I made cabbage soup using cabbage onions, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, garlic, green onions, kidney beans, and vegatable broth. I am down 7# in 4 days. I plan on making lentil soup next week using the same ingredients except the cabbage. I think if you stick to veggies you are doing what is needed.
