I intended to buy The South Beach Diet, but after flipping through it and seeing all the 15-ingredient recipes, I put it right back on the shelf and started browsing. I found 90/10 and decided to take it home with me when I saw that the foods listed were really easy to prepare and that I could have a little of the good stuff (like Nutter Butters, ice cream and french fries) every day. Each meal is assigned a caloric value, so it's easy to make substitutions. This book is a great tool and I'm so glad I found it!

I tried every other diet out there and this is the only one that worked for me. I lost 20 pounds in 2 months and have kept it off for the last 7 months. It is great because you can eat any type of food you want and still lose weight. The trick is HOW MUCH you eat. This book really leads you to a healthier lifestyle and a healthier you!

This is the best weight loss book there is essentially because Joy teaches you to eat right without all the sacrifice. I was very upset with my weight and saw her on a morning tv show. I got the book and read it and thought why not? Within a week I had lost 8 pounds, within three months I had lost 30 pounds and have not gained it back now 6 months later. You take the lessons she teaches you and it becomes second nature. And with her Fun Foods, you don't feel deprived , you just feel healthier and much lighter. If you want to lose weight, you need this book!!!

I have never had any success with "dieting" unitl I read this book. I decided to give it a try after reading the reviews. I can honestly say it works. I purchased the book and after 2 weeks I lost 4 lbs. (without any hunger or feeling deprived). It's easy to read/understand and I still use it as a reference guide. If I could follow this plan, anyone can!

I've got to admit, I bought this book hoping for a quick fix. But once I started reading it, something clicked. Bauer doesn't label foods as "good" or "bad," so I was no longer craving foods I couldn't have. Rather than think about chips all day, knowing I should be eating carrot sticks, then giving up and eating a whole bag of Doritos, I can have 1.5 cups of chips and still be following the plan. Some days I don't even have the fun food, but follow Bauer's suggestions for using those calories throughout the day (extra 2 oz. of fish, more spaghetti, etc.). Once I know that I can eat any food, I no longer crave the less nutritious foods. I've been using it for about two weeks and have lost six pounds, without feeling cranky and deprived. In those two weeks, I have eaten crackers, cookies, candy bars, and ice cream--foods that I wasn't eating before, but was still gaining weight! I would recommend this book to anyone who's tried a diet but failed once they couldn't overcome cravings.

Let me first say that I am not the kind of person who believes one eating plan fits all or that the entire population of the world should be eating the same way. People are different and have varying needs so I would never advise anyone else that this book is the only choice and that everyone must or must not follow Bauer's plan. But, speaking for myself and my own progress, I am extremely glad I found this book and I do believe it spared me from a life of obesity, a direction I was headed in quickly. I was a healthy weight throughout high school because of nutritious eating and regular exercise, but after I got into college, the extra pounds piled on. And I don't just mean five or ten or even twenty-- I mean sixty or more. I am five feet tall and thus carrying around that much extra weight had a major impact on how I looked and felt. At my highest, I was at least 180 lbs. I wanted to lose this weight before I moved on to graduate studies, but, with my senior year fast approaching, I didn't know what to do. I saw plenty of ads for fad diets, pills, shakes, etc., and I was scared that following such a plan would be dangerous and leave me worse off than before I started. Fortuitously, I saw Joy Bauer on TV one afternoon promoting this book and the logic sounded simple: eat healthy foods 90 percent of the time and junk foods 10 percent of the time. Marry this notion with portion control and voila. I ordered the book from Amazon and couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. I followed her advice from the first day after I finished reading the book and I also began an exercise regimen of walking at least five days a week. What a difference! I started on the 1600 calorie diet and after about one month, I stepped down to the 1400 calorie diet. Today, I usually oscillate between the two.Read more ›

Like a previous reviewer said, it can be disappointing for those who really struggle with weight loss. I tried this diet and though it's very sound and sensible by a well-known nutritionist, it's problematic.
Basically, you eat healthy 90% of the time, and can be a little 'bad' 10% of the time with a 'fun food' treat. The danger point for anyone trying to lose a significant amount of weight - certainly more than 15 or 20 pounds - is in the 'fun foods.'
The list of acceptable fun foods is NOT realistic. For starters, this is a very LONG list of unhealthy food that vary quite a bit in sugar/fat content and thus, portion size - and for an audience that may already have difficulty with that.
Also, the fun food servings don't reflect the packaging they come in - very unrealistic for emotional or compulsive eaters and others with more than 20 pounds to lose. Take Hostess Cupcakes for example. These can come two to three in a single package, but the allowable serving in this diet is one. It becomes very hard for most dieters to ignore or throw away those extra servings in that opened package, and before you know it, it's just too late.
There's also only two weeks of menus with lots of cooking. I found it a bit expensive to get all the ingredients and after a long day at work, was not in the mood to cook a whole meal.
It's a good maintenance diet, and I'm keeping my copy for that purpose, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone whose lifestyle is very busy, who has a significant amount of weight to lose and/or who expects to diet for more than 3 to 6 months.
By contrast, Holly McCord's Ice Cream Diet is very similar but it's less cooking, and most importantly: it limits the 'fun food' to ice cream, but that means ANY kind, and there's a lot of varieties to choose from.
