Weekly Diet News Digest

Over the past two decades, super-popular nutritionist Joy Bauer learned a lot about dieting while helping her clients lose more than 250,000 pounds. Lucky for us, she has compiled and rolled these weight loss secrets into her latest best-seller, Joy's LIFE Diet: 4 Steps to Thin Forever.

Last week, I sat down with the vivacious Today show nutritionist to discuss her latest book -- a book that just may be the last diet book you'll ever need.

In her red-hot new book, Joy offers a weight-loss plan that she personally field-tested over the past 20 years.

I've interviewed dozens of weight loss gurus and experts over the past nine years. Rarely have I come away feeling so good about a "diet book." With Joy's LIFE Diet, you get the steak along with the sizzle.

Joy delivers diet techniques that work. Follow her expert advice and you can expect to lose 7 pounds the very first week then 8-10 each month you stick with it.

"It's all about taking off weight and keeping it off," Joy tells Diet.com. "Even though it's called a diet, this book is really about lifestyle change."

Lifestyle change... that's something Diet.com members can really sink their teeth into!

"This book offers fine-tuned information on everything you need to know about diet and fitness," Joy adds.

"Sure, you can lose weight without exercise, but fitness is important to me and it should be important to anyone seeking to attain optimum health."

Worried about workouts? Don't sweat it. Joy says you can start with something as simple as 20 minutes of walking a day. Her fitness advice includes workouts that are inexpensive yet effective.

You can't argue with Joy’s fantastic results. Her success stories are publicized often on her Today show feature "Joy Bauer’s Fit Club." Joy has helped hundreds of men and women shed 100 pounds or more.

The best part: It's weight loss the good old-fashioned way -- through diet, exercise and no surgery!

But Joy's LIFE Diet isn't just about losing weight. The word LIFE stands for Look Incredible, Feel Extraordinary. So not only will you shed pounds, but you'll wake up each morning feeling more energized and more enthusiastic.

"I am always stunned and amazed by the tremendous achievements my clients make after losing an extraordinary amount of weight," Joy says.

Joy's prescription for losing weight -- and keeping it off -- is a four-step approach.

Release: A single intensive week that focuses on stripping away negative eating habits. "I give you the information you need to know -- you can forget everything else you think you know about dieting. Soak it up for 7 days and it'll strip away your negative habits."

Relearn: Two weeks that will help you to reprogram your appetite and discover the joys of healthy eating. Joy has you giving up things like salt and alcohol so you regain the actual taste of food. Once you relearn what food tastes like -- and experience the good feeling that accompanies cutting out these substances -- you are less likely to slide back into your bad habits.

Reshape: An easy-to-follow eating plan that can be integrated into any lifestyle and lasts until you reach your goal weight.

Reveal: Designed to help you find your maintenance groove. It's time to celebrate your weight-loss success!

With flexible and inclusive plans that can be tailored to your needs, Joy's LIFE Diet is a revolutionary weight-loss book that will keep you feeling your best and teach you to love healthy and delicious food.

Did we say food? This book is loaded with many savory recipes. Even after you've dropped your extra weight, you'll keep eating these awesome meals.

And that's part of the master plan. Joy is here to help you change your life... not to simply help you lose a few pounds.

Follow her plan through and it will become as natural an act as breathing.

"The problem with many trendy diets is that they do not educate you to make healthy choices," Joy says.

"You lose weight but you gain it back once you go of your diet. My LIFE Diet educates you so you'll know what you're doing wrong and what you can do to make the best choices at home or when dining out."
