We have curves everywhere here locally, and most of their adverts deal specifically with the exercise portion of weight loss...Have any of you ladies joined curves? If so, how was it and what is their diet portion of the program like?

I don't go to Curves, but I found this at one of those sites that "rates" all types of diets. It sounds like the Curves Diet book that was published a few years ago, so it's probably close to what they use today.

What is Curves Diet Weight Management Plan?
The Carbohydrate-Sensitive plan consists of high protein and limited carbohydrates while the Calorie-Sensitive is your typical calorie counting plan. On either plan you'll be counting something, either grams of carbohydrates or total calories. Both plans go through three phases. Below are the dietary guidelines for each plan.

Carbohydrate-Sensitive plan
Phase 1:
Restrict carbohydrates to 20 grams daily
Unlimited protein
Unlimited free foods
One protein shake daily
Eight cups of water daily

Phase 2:
Maximum of 60 grams of carbohydrates daily
Approximately 40% calories from protein
Unlimited free foods
One protein shake daily
Eight cups of water daily

Calorie-Sensitive plan
Phase 1:
Restrict carbohydrates to 40 to 60 grams daily
Unlimited protein
Unlimited free foods
One protein shake daily
Eight cups of water daily

Phase 2
1600 calories daily
Maximum of 60 grams carbohydrates daily
Protein increased to make up the extra calories
Unlimited free foods
One protein shake daily
Eight cups of water daily

Phase 3
Guidelines for both Curves Diet plans include:
Eat normally and continue exercising 30 minutes for three days per week
Weigh yourself daily
Don't exceed three to five pounds over your highest normal weight. If you do regain three to five pounds, return to phase one for no more than 72 hours to lose the excess pounds.
