THE JOY FIT CLUB
Cookbook, Diet Plan, & Inspiration
BY JOY BAUER, MS, RD

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Millions of us face overwhelming challenges with food and weight that seem impossible to overcome. But Joy Bauer has found throughout her four-year series on TODAY and hundreds of success stories that the real solutions for weight issues are much simpler. Filled with motivational stories, satisfying recipes and strategic meal plans, The Joy Fit Club: Cookbook, Diet Plan & Inspiration (Wiley Hardcover; April 23, 2012; $27.99) offers powerful encouragement and real-world advice for reaching your healthiest, happiest weight.

Taking the TODAY series a step further, The Joy Fit Club expands on the individuals featured so that viewers and readers alike can draw inspiration from their unique strategies – how they really coped on a day-to-day basis, how they overcame the obstacles on their long journeys, what they ate, where they found support, how they got back on track when they slipped up and how they overcame particular challenges. These practical personal insights on exercise, nutrition and overcoming setbacks are the ultimate takeaway lessons, in addition to Joy’s expert health advice, including:

Joy’s Winning Weight Loss Rules: 10 principals to live by that will help losers become winners. These rules are common to all successful dieters, regardless of how much weight they want to lose.

Tried-and-True Food Strategies: Joy’s 3-Week Meal Plan broken down into breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner made with a variety of delicious, nourishing and simply prepared ingredients.

Bonus Recipes from Joy’s Kitchen: In addition to recipes sprinkled throughout the book, Joy includes bonus recipes like Lemon-Ginger Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry, Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup, Sweet Sesame-Crusted Salmon and Eggplant Lasagna.

Featuring the personal stories of 30 courageous men and women who have lost 100, 200, even 300 pounds, The Joy Fit Club represents a transformation in the way people view losing weight. After trying every quick-fix out there, these dieters didn’t want to fail again, and are proof that realistic and balanced eating and exercise plans work (now and for the long haul) if you have the right approach and the core motivation. Of the strategies common to her Joy Fit Club members, Joy identified the specific tactics that resulted in success every time – from A-list celebrities to soccer moms, as well as CEOs, young children, elite athletes and couch potatoes, “Joy’s Rules” have worked for tens of thousands of her personal clients to help them achieve their personal best.

Weight-loss principles often seem simple, but no single weight-loss solution works for everyone. The Joy Fit Club serves to present a foundation of strategies to build on for weight loss, and thirty different maps to follow to get there; a unique approach that allows readers to see healthy principals and winning methods in action, so that they can find success as well.

 SAMPLE RECIPE FROM THE BOOK: 
Decadent Chocolate Mousse with Berries
--Makes 6 servings 
--(Serving Size 1/2 cup mousse with 1/4 cup berries)
--Prep Time 30 minutes
--Chill Time 2 hours

Ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 1/4 cups nonfat milk or original/plain soy milk
1 egg
1 ounce dark chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 cups assorted fresh berries (such as raspberries, blackberries, cherries, and/or sliced strawberries)
1/2 ounce dark chocolate, chopped or made into curls

Directions:
--In a medium saucepan combine sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, espresso powder, and salt. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat for 9 to 11 minutes or until large bubbles are just starting to break the surface of the pudding (pudding will be thick, so to check for bubbles stop stirring for 3 to 4 seconds). Reduce the heat to low and cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat.

--In a medium bowl lightly beat the egg. Gradually whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture into the egg. Add all the egg mixture along with the 1 ounce chopped chocolate into the saucepan with the rest of the pudding. 

--Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 30 seconds to 11/2 minutes or until large bubbles are just starting to break the surface of the pudding (again, pudding will be thick so stop stirring for a few seconds to check for bubbles). Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 2 minutes more. 

--Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.

--Place the saucepan of pudding in a large bowl half-filled with ice water. Stir the pudding for 1 to 2 minutes to cool it quickly. Transfer the pudding to a large bowl. Cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until well chilled.

--Place whipping cream in a medium chilled bowl. Whisk or beat with a rotary beater until thick, soft peaks form. Gently fold half of the whipped cream into the chilled pudding. Gently fold in the remaining whipped cream. 

--Divide mousse among six dessert dishes. Top with berries and garnish with chocolate.

--Try it with a twist: Fiery Chocolate Mousse with Berries Prepare as directed above except add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the pudding in Step 1 with the salt.
