This is a newer edition and intended to express the Curves philosophy rather than just be a member's guide. The book includes instructions for doing the Curves strength building exercises while travelling with stretch bands or other equipment. The book also includes shopping lists, meal plans and recipes.

Has some good information in it and some good exercises with photos to help you learn to do them. Also the approach isn't bad and if you plan on joining this gym it would be a great book for you.

A neat new approach to weight loss. Find your body type, and the diet that matches it, and it works! i was on it for a few weeks, and lost 12 pounds. The only trick is to be consistant and stick to it.

I love curves and the time spent there looking at the book made me wonder exactly what was inside. So, on a whim I picked the book up and am glad that I did, it is very insightful and gives you a lot of information in regards to your body that you may have never known. As someone who has been a dieter for the last 16 years and who thought they knew everything to dieting, I was wrong, this book defiantly gave me some new information.

a sensible, healthy, doable approach to weight loss - for women, by the founder of Curves fitness centers.

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.

Brand new condition. I bought this a few years back when I was a member of Curves. Wanted to lose weight for my wedding.
