Customer reviews

By Karielle 30 Dec 2013 4

What I love about 21-Day Tummy is that it isn't just a book on weight loss and diet management; it's unique in that it also places importance on the digestive tract. Many of the recipes and theories revolve around the bodily chemistry regarding certain foods and exercises, so this diet plan is one that targets both shedding pounds and metabolizing your digestive system.

If you suffer from weight gain due to digestive slowdown, this is the perfect book for you. It is well backed and well explained, so anyone can follow and understand the logistics of the diet�???�??�?�¢�??�?�¢?�??�?�¬�??�?�¢??even if you have minimal experience with dieting. That's what I love about Vaccariello's diet guides; they're so accessible!

The recipes, as expected, are amazing. Just looking at the photographs makes my mouth water, and I love how each ingredient is elaborated upon. There are helpful lists of digestive do's and don't's throughout the book, which are entertaining and useful for the kitchen. Other helpful tools include measurement conversion charts, grocery shopping lists, green lights and red lights of foods (regarding how they'll treat your stomach), and myths about certain foods busted or confirmed.

I find it really helpful that the regimen's goal is to not only flatten tummies, but also regulate the inner workings of the body. It takes the focus off the scale and tape measures, and places it onto feeling and being HEALTHY.

Pros: Methodical, biologically sound approaches to dieting and improving the digestive system // Lots of tried-and-true recipes that are worth testing // Real-life testimonies and weight loss plans and interviews of successful dieters included

Cons: Some recipes don't include pictures and are difficult to follow // I'm skeptical of the timeline. Although the book doesn't necessarily claim to change lives drastically in 21 days, it keeps dieters on a schedule that seems a bit too rigid

Verdict: I personally was not really able to follow this diet book because it deals a lot with digestive issues rather than just wholesome, healthy eating, but I appreciate how specific the regimen is. It isn't something I could actually stick with�???�??�?�¢�??�?�¢?�??�?�¬�??�?�¢??in fact, it doesn't seem very lenient�???�??�?�¢�??�?�¢?�??�?�¬�??�?�¢??but I recommend Vaccariello's newest diet book for those who struggle with acid reflux and eating the right way due digestive problems. With the perfect amount of motivation and realistic, delicious-looking recipes, 21-Day Tummy helps you look and feel your best by using a targeted approach of not only eating well, but also taking care of what's on the inside.

Rating: 7 out of 10 hearts (4 stars): Not perfect, but overall enjoyable; borrow, don't buy!

Review quote

Health journalist Vaccariello (The Digest Diet) presents a three-week program designed to resolve symptoms of five common digestive disorders and the belly bulge that accompanies them. The same diet that alleviates gastro-intestinal problems like heartburn and acid reflux, gas and bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome also results in a flat stomach. Exploring the connection between digestion and weight, explaining the role of gut bacteria, and identifying diet as the major cause behind the chronic inflammation, she advises how to "die[t] away digestive disorders." A 3-phase, day-by-day food plan, featuring over 50 recipes, shows readers how to calm their sensitive stomachs, enjoy delicious dining, flatten those tummies, and lose an average of 6-10 lbs. With lively writing, inviting four-color format, pull-outs, sidebars, nine personal success stories (including the author's), and enticing photography, this book is a winner.
