Joy's LIFE Diet

A 4-step program for those with a lot of weight to lose.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The book Joy’s LIFE Diet: Four Steps to Thin Forever was written by Joy Bauer. Joy is a nutrition expert for The Today Show and leads the Joy Fit Club. The Joy Fit Club is a truly inspiring segment of the Today Show that highlights individuals from around the country that have lost at least 100 pounds by using only diet and exercise. Joy's LIFE Diet helps those that follow it remove the hassle of dieting, and move toward reaching their goals.

LIFE stands for Look Incredible, Feel Extraordinary. There’s no doubt that if you have more than a hundred pounds to lose, those are characteristics that you long for. There are simple steps to follow during this program that will lead to your success.

Each step includes a certain time period as part of its criteria. The first step is to release, and this takes place over your first week on the program. The release step is used to rid you of your negative eating habits. The second step is to relearn. The relearn period gives you a chance to discover healthy eating choices over a two week period. The third step of the program is the reshape phase. There is no set time period assigned to this step, but it does include the eating plan that you follow until you reach your goal weight. Finally, there is the reveal step. Within the reveal stage, you will be working on your maintenance plan and of course, celebrating the success of reaching your weight loss goals. The book Joy’s LIFE Diet is also available in Spanish and as an e-Book.

How to get out of this program? I wanted to stop the online program and was told that it would stop at the end of March. Now I see I am still receiving emails from you and being charged for a program I am not using. Please stop sending me program emails. How can I stop receiving emails from you and stop being charged for a program I am not using. Plus I was promised it would stop at the end of March

it is wonderful! in just 2 days i have already lost 4.5 lbs! my sister has lost 8 in the last week.

it is easy, sensible, i am not hungry at all...it is as if i feel my stomach and body shrinking.

the key here for me seems to be incorporating veggies, fruit, portion control and PREP!

it is actually fun and exciting to take a little time to prep my next days meals instead of just rushing at lunch to grab something at lunch hour...usually taco bell, a starchy sandwhich or greasy burger!

it is nice to take a little special time for me and my health...i haven't done that forever and i suppose that is why it has excited me!

will try and keep you posted!

all the best! :)

Already down 6 pounds and only on day 5 of the first week! The recipes and food lists are great - things most people already enjoy. I am FULL after each meal and content in between. Well worth the cost of the book and a little effort!
