Our Journey Begins... The Digest Diet Review

My life changed on March 6, 2012. The day my handsome baby boy was born. I had a smooth pregnancy, with the normal nausea and body aches here and there. But by the end of my pregnancy I had gained 50lbs and I was so ready to drop them. Whithin 2 months I dropped 40lbs, I went back to work and gained 5lbs back. Today I write this post 2.4lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. But my body looks nothing like it did before I gave birth to my son. I been searching for a solution and I think I found it.

A few weeks ago I was at work flipping through an issue of "The Reader's Digest" and I stopped on a page advertising the famous "Digest Diet" Book. "Drop 26lbs in weeks," can this be possible? I decided to give it a try and order a copy of the book. For the past 5 weeks all my co-worker Sam has heard every morning is "Good morning. My book was not in the mail yesterday." Well tomorrow she will hear "Good morning! My book finally arrived in the mail yesterday!!"

Tonight I made a batch of soup and got all my ingridients ready for Phase 1: Days 1-4 FAST RELEASE. "Flood your body with nutrition: Phase 1 fills ou up on liquid shakes and soups that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein, to gently coax your body into quick, safe weight loss."

& I won't embark on this journey alone. My hubby decided to support me and diet along with me.
I will keep you updated on our progress. I will share which are our favorite recipes, our weightloss, measurements and of course if you have any questions leave me a comment below!
