Reviews - What do customers think about Curves-Permanent Results Without Permanent Dieting?

helpful!  Jan 12, 2007
have used the Curves system for a year and love the books and the results.
I finally found the right diet for me  Jan 4, 2007
This diet (calorie limited choice) was just the right balance for me, having tried Atkins and Carbohydrate Addicts (unsuccessfully). The menus are easy to use, and I felt less hungry than on any other diet I've been on. Limited amounts of fruit and bread are allowed, making it easy to stay on the weight loss portion of the diet longer. A couple criticisms I had are that meat portions aren't specified as to pre-cooked or post-cooked weight. Also, the book doesn't give clear guidelines on how to eat when on the maintenance part of the diet. Only two vague statements: "you don't have to count carbohydrates" and "avoid sugar" are given.

A concept introduced by these authors is that it is possible to "raise your metabolism" by increasing your daily calories. This is accomplished by alternately increasing calories for a few days, followed by decreasing them for up to two days. This takes up to three months.

Well, when I reached the point of being about 20 lbs. above my goal weight of 145, I had hit a "plateau." So I tried this metabolism-raising technique. I kept up the chart in the book which showed evidence of my metabolism being raised, so I had high expectations I would be able to continue losing weight when finished with this technique. Sadly, when I returned to the weight-loss portion of the diet (after completing another induction phase) I was unable to lose any more weight, despite six weeks of rigidly following the diet, AND increasing my exercise.

I think that for women who have struggled with being overweight, who are in the pre-menopause stage of our lives (ages 35-45), we must be realistic that our weight won't likely reach the "ideal." But even with this disappointment, I still like the diet and have found that I can maintain my weight as long as I avoid sugar, and limit amounts of white flour.
Definitely worth buying  Aug 4, 2006
Contains the history of Curves, eating plan and exercise program for when you can't get to a Curves gym.
Good workout - not so good diet  Feb 23, 2006
Most of the book talks about the curves diet which is very similar to the south beach diet. I don't like high protein, low carb diets so I didn't follow the diet. I did like the workout though. You have to have a set of exercise bands and a stop watch to do the workout. You do 40 second exercises with the bands and walking/jogging in place between each exercise. You are suppose to be able to do two complete sets of the exercises in 30 minutes. It took me an hour to do the exercises because you have to keep changing the position of the bands. I also found it hard to keep track of when 40 seconds are up.
The right program for my lifestyle  Sep 18, 2005
I have wasted countless $$$ on programs without doing complete research...I decided to buy the book because a co-worker let me look throught her Curves Magazine, I took the test and was shocked to find that I was calorie sensitive. There was an ad about the book. I promptly went on line to get it
.....The book, I love, it answered all of my questions about food, meal planner, exercise ,ect, and the curves program the point I plan to join for my up coming birthday, to get that extra push needed to exercise.
