Great book and a great way to lose weight.
S. Farrell
It would seem that this guy just read the Atkins diet and the south beach diet then wrote his own book.
James D. Jesse
An easy read, easy to follow so this is a very good book.

My husband and I decided to try this diet after seeing it on a talk show. Like others mentioned, it does NOT have a comprehensive menu/recipe section. But that's okay. It does have the basics on what you can or cannot eat. Yes it is similar to Atkins, in that it restricts carbs, but that's where all similarities end. It isn't as restrictive, and you don't have to count exact numbers (I have fudged on my count on more than one occasion), and yet you can still lose weight.

Here are our results. We have been on this diet since the end of July. My husband did not weigh himself. I did. I am over 50, 5-9 and weighed in at 164. Every time I went on a diet in the past, I'd lose a few pounds (7 average) then, once I went off I always gained a few more than I started with. In 20 years, I've never been able to diet and lose more than 10 pounds, and certainly not keep it off. In ten weeks, following a semi-close rendition of this diet, and adding walking to my daily routine (and nothing else), I lost 20 pounds. At first the weight came off fast. As I eventually neared what my (old) normal weight was, it slowed. (And I probably would have continued to lose, except for that pizza I just had to have. When you pass your fave pizza place, resist!) I went from a size 12-14 to a size 8. To me the most amazing part was that I lost weight in my stomach and hips, not my face (which on other diets has always given me a gaunt look).

My husband suffered from arthritis in both knees and was talking about knee replacement. He has been on every diet under the sun. (We both have done Atkins, lost 10 pounds while on it, then bounced right back the moment we stopped. It was just too hard to stay on.

So, I need to say upfront that I've only just READ the book, I plan to update this review in a couple weeks with actual results. I'd like to lose 10 lbs and don't need to do it in two weeks but, hey, if following this plan works, awesome-( I will update my review as I go).

The author in two short paragraphs outlines the pluses and minuses of the Atkins diet(extreme carb restriction), the Paleo diet(extreme carb restriction) , and 'low-glycemic' diets(eating food only with low glycemic index). He then proceeds to say this diet takes the positives without the negatives(high heart disease markers with extreme carb restriction or slow/ineffective loss with low glycemic index).

The plan is broken out into two options: Follow what the author calls the 1 Menu or follow the My Meal Planner. The 1 Menu is a fairly specific guideline with a few options to change it up. My Meal Planner menus provide 4 weeks of daily menu plans.

There is a big list of 'Freebies'- everything from chicken breast to egg whites to lots and lots of salad veggies, dill pickles, cheese and nuts. I think the kicker here is that you should refer to the 1 Menu or Meal Planner menus and construct your meal based on serving sizes suggested there. So, the fine print (or maybe the difference between losing 1-4 lbs per week) might come back to the old calories in vs. calories out.

It is a DIET book- I put emphasis on that because it does breeze over the importance of exercise. The main gist of the diet is summed up in the following sentence: "The way it works is simple: You have 100 Sugar Calories a day to choose from and you can use them anyway you like." BUT and it is a big BUT, he provides an altered definition of sugar. I hate to give away the punch line, though.

I first heard about this diet on Doctor Oz after receiving an email from Jorge. Dr. Oz continuously pushes the next diet fad almost every month. Jorge was on Dr. Oz pitching his latest fad diet. Cruise says if you count sugar calories you can lose 18 pounds in just two weeks. Although Jorge is marketing this book for carb lovers, this is a very low carb diet. If you love fruit and wheat, this diet is not for you. Jorge tells us that we can substitute wheat flour with coconut, almond, and flax flour. The only problem: He doesn't tell us how. There are no recipes in this book. While the book is not particularly laid out well, the diet does work if you can stick to it.

As others mentioned, the book boils down to this premise: You are limited to only 100 sugar calories per day. By sugar calories, he is referring to all carbs. That is 25 grams of non fibrous carbs since each gram of carbohydrate is 4 calories. Fruit and starchy vegetables count as part of the 25 grams of carbs. On this diet carbs = sugar.

On Atkins, you are supposed to eat a total of less than 20 grams of net carbs(carbs minus fiber) per day during the first phase. This is a refined version of Atkins.

Jorge tells us in addition to the 100 sugar calories we can also eat what he calls "Freebies." Freebies include proteins, non starchy vegetables, herbs, cheese, and nuts. We are told that we can eat as much of these in reasonable portions. Don't expect to eat 12 slices of bacon, 12 bun-less hamburgers, and bun-less hot dogs on this "diet."

Jorge gives us 4 weeks of Meal Plans. He lays out two options. One is essentially a menu for each day. The other is a menu planner. For each week, there is a shopping list.
