Sounds like a lot of time and energy. It is, in the beginning. Just like anything new. I'm in my fifth week. My energy level escalating within 2-3 days. My body showed obvious signs of firming up within a week. I've lost 9 pounds and like having minigoals.
Jorge Cruise doesn't push young, skinny bodies. He promotes health and well-being. If young, skinny bodes are the result, so be it. I feel great and am already getting comments about changes in my body. My favorite result is the increase in energy. Before Cruise, a walk was preceded by long debates with myself about whether or not I should do it. Now I find myself in the middle of a walk and wonder how I got there without all that self-debate.
I'll keep working with this book and when I've lost about 20 more pounds, I'm planning to switch to his other book--the one for losing 30# or less.
8 Minutes in the Morning for Real Shapes, Real Sizes: Specifically Designed for People Who Want to Lose 30 Pounds or More by Jorge Cruise is well worth the money. My health and fitness are worth much more than the cost of the book and the time it takes to do this great program.
8 Minutes In the Morning for Real Shapes and Sizes is all about reality and simplicity. Jorge Cruise is a real personal fitness trainer and coach who's worked with all kinds of people after grasping truths for his own weight issues and has now put them out there for all of us into these books! You don't have to pay a membership fee or join a gym. Having a treadmill or a pilates machine is nice but not necessary, you don't even have to buy support workbooks, or special food! All you need to do these exercises is an open bit of floor, an open bit of wall or a doorway, two phonebooks (or the like), two equal cans of food or bottled water from your cupboard, a sturdy chair and a table with one end cleared off. (You use these things a few times over 28 days, how difficult is that! You can even do this on business trips, while visiting friends/family or on vacation!Read more ›
I really like the diet because he teaches you how to figure out what and how much to eat by just looking at your plate. It is so much less trouble than other diets. Nothing is completely off-limits. This is the kind of diet that you can stick with for the rest of your life.
If you've been looking for a way to: 1) work a weight loss program into your busy schedule; 2) be able to ask questions any time and get answers; 3) get support, be it individually or within a group; 4) better understand yourself and why you "can't seem to change the way you eat, exercise and lose weight, then you've come to the right place.
In addition to an outstanding 4 week strength training program, Jorge helps you with absolutely every aspect of a weightloss program you could imagine. It is truly a life changing event.
I lost 70 pounds in 9 months (averaging 2 pounds a week) and have kept it off for about 9 months!
You CAN do this! ... Please....You'll not regret it.
