How this diet works:
Founder Gary Heavin believes that with the right amount
of exercise, you can easily maintain a healthy appetite without too much
restriction. You workout at a Curves fitness center three
times a week and choose from a low calorie or low carb diet plan
For carb sensitive dieters there is an Atkin's like system. For
Calorie sensitive dieters there is a 1200 calorie diet that transitions to
1600 calories. Menu's give dieters the right food choices.
It's a weight loss plan tailored toward
women You work out at centers and you can interact with
each others. Online communities, not affiliated with the company, have
also sprung up on several Internet sites. Eating out is OK, as
long as you plan ahead and use commonsense strategies to keep portions
It's pricey. Enrollment fees are often
discounted or waived, but the monthly stipend can run $50 or more. Fees
vary depending on the location and your individual contract.
Franchise owners are trained at headquarters by nutrition and fitness
professionals. Fitness or nutrition credentials arenít required.
The underlying message is not about behavior change
but about building muscle Phase one takes 1 to 2 weeks; phase 2
lasts until you reach your target weight. Dieters follow phase 3 as needed
