Remember those Looney Tunes cartoons where a particularly gullible character would momentarily appear to morph into a giant sucker (lollipop)? I think that must have happened to me as I walked by this book on the store shelf....

I'll start with what I hated about this book.

* Jorge Cruise's Cruise Down Plate (R). This consists of the following: "Mentally divide the plate in half. Fill the upper half with vegetables. Then again mentally split the bottom half of the plate into two equal parts. Fill the left side with a high-protein food and the right side with a carbohydrate food. Finally, add 1 teaspoon of fat.... If you ... eat everything on your plate - and you're still hungry - you may dish yourself up another plate of vegetables.... And that's really all you need to know to use my Cruise Down Plate (R) to achieve weight-loss success." Well, no, it's really not. You have to read another 14 pages to get to the bottom of it, which actually turns out to be just another low-calorie diet. The plate gimmick barely enters into it. YAWN.

* "Visit [...]" I was perplexed to find that there is apparently NO content on this website that doesn't require you to pay $3 a week. The one exception I found was a link to My Virtual Body, which is free. One section of the book tells you to go to [...] to see a list of weight-loss clubs meeting in your area. Unfortunately, nothing exists at that web address. At another part of the book, Jorge encourages you to "share your story" and invites you to weekly online meetings by joining the "online club" at [...] He doesn't mention there's a fee for this extra support. The most irritating one yet was "You can even go to [...] to hear selections from my personal picks of the most inspiring and moving music.

By following the techniques in this book, I shed 15 pounds in one month and my daughter lost 20 pounds!! This book is for those who have not exercised or dieted for quite some time. Jorge gives the reader great diet tips combined with exercises that will get the reader's metabolism moving again. This book is highly recommended for those who want the weight loss but can only do minimum exercises.

Format: Paperback
1-The eating plan: simple and easy to follow. I think most

nutritionists would support the Cruise Down Plate method.

2-The exercise: very simple. If you are already an exerciser you

may find these strength training moves too simple and will need

to do some alternative moves (if you have already been

exercising I suggest you might want to use the website instead

of the book).

3-The book itself: it is colorful, well written and easy to

follow. The advise is sound.

The results: I lost 3 pounds in 1 week. Then 2. Then "that time of the month" and I maintained (which was a miracle). Week four I gained one pound but I only did the exercise and was way off on my eating for my own emotional issues.

I am starting week five and I know I will continue to live healthier. I strongly suggest this book for beginners and the Jorge's website is a good resource to develop a support community. I know, for myself, that talking to people face to face about my weight is stressful but online is a godsend.

Good luck!

Format: Paperback
If you look past all the pics of Jorge and just stick to the motivational tips and stories, it will keep you going. I just started the fourth week and I have lost 7 pounds already. I'm not thinking about calories, because the suggestions are already there for me and I don't feel deprived. The exercises are very simple; a great way to get started for your first month of weightloss. I don't use the "online tools" because I think the money I spent on the book itself is sufficient.

The book is geared toward people who have not exercised in a VERY long time and are quite overweight. However, I was following another exercise and "diet" routine and only maintaining the weight I started out with. In 3 weeks, my stomach is flatter and I can fit into smaller sizes again.

I only gave it 3 stars, despite my results, because of the "Jorge product hocking."

If you are serious about weight loss, you are probably looking for a program that works with your real life. Jorge Cruise offers that. Your actual weight loss might be more like a pound a week -- but remember that you are turning fat to muscle while you lose. Also, the eight minutes is more like 15 when you do legwork and add the cool-down stretches, and that doesn't count whatever you do (like walking) for your warm-up. There is a lot of encouragement in these pages, stories from real people who have lost real weight. I've just started my second 28-day cycle and find the simplicity and variety fit with real life.

I Love this book. I can really handle the 8 min a day. But do not blow off the beginning of the book. It is a great way to set yourself up for success! It guides you through getting mentally prepared to succeed as well as help you to set yourself up with a support system to succeed. The exercises are very easy and you do not need any equipment. I'm on my 3rd week and actually lost 4lbs this week - YAHOO! I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious about losing weight. It is fantastic!!!
