• Meet: Margaret Jones
• Her weight before Digest Diet: 137 pounds
• Her weight after: 128 pounds
• Total lost: 9 pounds!
• Inches lost: 4.5 inches lost
• Health gains: 7.4% body fat lost
• Also: “I feel lighter. And I loved some of
the recipes and plan to integrate them into my
repertoire. I did the diet with a coworker, and
we helped each other—especially when snacks
came into the office. Yesterday we made the
honey parfait for her birthday!”
Margaret, 57, is a nurse practitioner and mother to Kate, 27; Megan, 24 and twins: Clare and Maureen, 22.
Why she did the Digest Diet: “I have
never really been on an official diet before.
Anytime I wanted to lose weight in the past, I just
cut back or really cut out a lot of the junk I eat
and increased exercise. But that’s not working
anymore. I guess it’s part of the aging process.”
