Riassunto: Close to 2 million women have discovered Gary Heavin's secret to permanent weight loss at the nearly six thousand Curves fitness and weight-loss centers around the country. There, they've discovered that in thirty minutes, three times a week, and without a restrictive diet, they can take their weight off and keep it off for good. Now, for the first time, Gary Heavin brings this remarkable program directly to you in his first book for the general public. Here's what you'll find in Curves:
* the exercise program: thirty minutes a day-no more than three times a week;
* a combination of strength-training and aerobics that can be done at home or at the Curves center;
* a temporary diet plan that produces permanent results;
* questionnaires to determine if you're calorie sensitive or carbohydrate sensitive, helping you to individualize your food plan;
* a unique maintenance plan that allows you to eat full portions after the initial weight loss; and
* a coupon for one free week at any Curves center in the country. (good for one-week membership at any Curves location, new members only, must be 18 years or older)
Gary Heavin's revolutionary plan reprograms the metabolism to absorb 2,500 to 3,000 calories per day. That means full portions without gaining weight. And you'll see major results within two weeks.
Recensione: If you don't mind wading through subtly persistent salesmanship throughout the book, the Curves guide has a wealth of practical advice that clearly continues to help women around the world achieve better health and lasting weight loss. Packed with information-—including multiple diet plans for different body types and different stages and tests designed to lead to the proper combination—-the first few chapters are a little overwhelming. Are you sensitive to calories or carbohydrates? Need to lose more or less than 25 pounds? Hold steady—-the hugely popular 30-minute exercise program (for either home or health club) is utterly simple, well designed, and accompanied by thorough instructions and helpful illustrations. Shopping lists and recipes are included in later sections, which vastly simplify your life once you've determined which diet and which stage you're starting; straightforward tips at the very end provide the key highlights that make the program a success. Still, some readers may take offense at the regular mentions of the record-breaking franchise and the assorted brand-name products (protein shakes, official club membership coupon) and the somewhat over-the-top customer profiles, all of which are from women who lost over 100 pounds through the Curves centers. Underneath the hype, you'll find a solidly crafted program offering plenty of long-term benefits—-even if you don't ever set foot in a health club. --Jill Lightner
