The above is a press release for The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide. I received a copy of the book for review and was not compensated in any way.
The Digest Diet Dining Out Guide is a slim, thin book that can fit in almost any purse. It contains quick go to sections on popular restaurants. It is not a calorie counter – it a phase plan where you use restaurant meals and specific food combinations that are “fat releasers”. This means not every meal you might order at your favorite chain restaurant is represented in this guide. You are given four to five meal options and told how to eat them for each phase of the diet. I found very few meals I could eat as a vegan included in this book, even though I do eat at a few of the restaurants listed. For the average American eater though, there should be plenty of options that would allow any individual to utilize this book. Great for travelers who spend a lot of time away from their home kitchen, and people who like to eat out. Even if your favorite cafe isn’t listed, the beginning of the book goes over some tips for different eating environments. Definitely a book for people who hate to diet because it means they have to stay home and measure food.
