While reality is rarely that simple, the advice offered here is nutritionally sound, emphasizing plenty of fruits and vegetables, and filling in with lean proteins, healthy fats, and just enough carbs to keep meals interesting. Following Cruises guidelines for portion control, youll eat an average of 1,400 calories per day, filling half your plate with fruits or vegetables, and dividing the other half between the rest of the food groups. Healthy meals from fast-food joints and freezer cases are included, and a substantial recipe section offers everything from a bacon and cheese omelet to rosemary lamb chops. A month-long journal is also provided, giving you space to plan each meal in advance (a key part of the diet), along with daily motivational hints and visualization exercises. A few pages cover basic exercises--but the emphasis is definitely on the diet, which Cruise asserts will work, regardless of whether you choose to work out.
Cruises straightforward, no-excuses encouragement works well with the simple formula the plan is based upon, and the clever Three-Hour Plate™ makes it easy to keep portion sizes in check. Still, closely monitoring meal time might seem like a challenge to some of the "busy people" for whom the program claims to be specifically designed. If counting calories or net carbs sounds dauntingbut keeping a close eye on the clock doesntyou might just find weight loss success in these pages. Jill Lightner

|Tired of fad diets and their lack of results? That's just how Jorge Cruise, author of The Three-Hour Diet, wants you to feel. Cruise's guidelines encourage sensible portion control and plenty of vegetables, but--perhaps more importantly--they encourage dieters to feel good about themselves by teaching self-acceptance and positive visualization. Stressing an easy-to-follow visual food plan that insists on incorporating snacks and treats into your day, he contends that carb-bashing is a highly ineffective means of maintaining a healthy weight. How can you sort out weight-loss fact from fiction? Amazon.com contributor Jill Lightner got some straight answers from Cruise.|

So, I bought the book. It looks for a 2-lb loss per week without exercise. I try to walk each evening between 2-5 miles. I started at 201 lbs, lost 5 pounds in week 1, 4 pounds in week 2, and 3 pounds in week 3. I'll be much more than satisfied if I can lose 2 pounds in each of the next four weeks, to lose 20 total. I've lost 1 inch off my waist, but 4 inches off of my belly.
I feel better, I get full quicker, and now, I just can't believe the eating habits I used to have. I eat everything I enjoy, in moderation, and I'm the talk of my office and my friends. I think I've sold a few books.
This is the only diet book that makes any sense. Plus, lots of fast food choices, and specific frozen meal suggestions, as well as recipes if you have the time. I jokingly refer to the book as my Egg McMuffin diet - once a week, I'll have an Egg McMuffin, milk, and fruit for breakfast.
You gotta buy this book!
I've tried lots of diets and I can't recommmend this one enough!!
I have not been exercising for the past few weeks, but I continue to lose weight. I have lost a total of 27 lbs. and 4.5 inches around my belly.
I survived Thanksgiving! I had all the Thanksgiving food I wanted, but nothing more. I have now lost 35 pounds in a little more than 3 months. I have lost 6.5 inches off my belly.
I made it from Thanksgiving through New Years and not only did I not gain weight but I lost some.Read more ›
* It is quite interesting that so many wildly enthusiastic posts about the book are from Jorge's hometown of San Diego. And JAnderson who has posted exactly one Amazon review -- could it be Jenn Anderson from Jorge's staff?
* The book itself is way, way, way padded. The actual eating plan could have been published in a 50-page pamphlet. Too much space is spent bashing other diets, and the daily journal of pretty much blank pages takes up a lot of the book, as do testimonials from people who have found success with the plan.
* Even if you buy the book and find success with Jorge's plan, be wary of "joining" the website. The things Jorge promises you'll find there are not there at all. The most you get is a forum to share with other "cruisers," which for some people is actually quite helpful. But not much else is there.
Anyway, that's my two cents. I give the book four stars because the eating plan does work, and it is sensible, well-balanced eating. He provides food lists, so you are not dependent on frozen meals or fast foods, as an earlier poster claimed (although he provides those options as well). If you can't create your own menu from the foods listed, I feel sorry for you. And if you can't commit to eating every three hours, perhaps you are not really committed to losing weight -- or perhaps another diet would work better for you.
