It's a fact: the low–carb craze is everywhere. Another fact: two–thirds of Americans are still overweight and no one is getting thinner. Although low–carb diets produce short term weight loss, the results are not sustainable in the long term. Dieticians, fitness experts, and medical publications are slowly awakening to the fact that the low–carb diet isn't the answer to we ...more

Recommends it for: Dieters or wanting change eating habits
What I mostly gleaned from this is to eat every 3 hours only. Meal, snack, meal, snack, meal, snack. But the last snack of the day has to be 3 hours before bedtime. I'm not really changing what I'm eating I'm just eating every 3 hours and even with this I'm getting my weight back down. I had lost a bunch of weight when I stopped watching TV but I've slowly been watching TV again and my weight has been creeping up. When I watch TV, I snack pretty much non-stop. Not when I read though, just watchi ...more

This book emphasizes eating every 3 hours. This is because after 3 hours your body goes into starvation mode and takes lean muscle tissue for energy instead of fat. It also has a plan to eat 400 calories for 3 meals, and 100 for 2 snacks, and 50 for a treat at the end of the day. No food is off limits! He suggested to eat the "3 hour plate" which consists of half the plate of vegetables (fruit for breakfast) the equivalent of 3 DVD cases. One fourth the plate of carbohydrates the equivalent of a ...more

I tried reading this book in preparation for the Biggest Loser contest at work, but unfortunately the diet requirements are not practical for me because of my work schedule. The premise of eating a balanced meal or snack every three hours over the course of a day is a good one because you never get really hungry and your body doesn't go into "starvation mode" so your body never cannabalizes muscle tissue for calories, BUT there is a lot of prep work. The prep work involves knowing exactly what y ...more

Read this one awhile ago never marked it but I do really like Jorge Cruise I stuck to his plan once and it was very beneficial he keeps it real and do-able. You just need to stick with it it's like anything else I know to be true I'm guilty of faltering but to continue to be healthy you have to stick with a healthy lifestyle. I might not be much of a credited critic for health books but I would recommend this for those who can't do those extreme diets. I believe, for most people, that even those ...more

This diet book appealed to me because I'm hungry often, even with drinking lots of water. The hard part, which is explained in the text, is to keep the calories below 1500 a day. That means the 2 snacks are only 100 calories each. The routine of eating every 3 hours was fine when I didn't have to meet anyone else's schedule. This diet is worth trying because the more you try to improve eating habits, the better the chance that this one will lead to a breakthrough in your view of food.
This book was interesting and informative. I just wish that when an author decides to write about an eating lifestyle that they didn't spend so much time with all the medical/technical stuff. I skimmed through so many pages until I actually found what Jorge Cruise had to say about carbs and how and what to eat to change your eating lifestyle so you can become more healthy.

okay.. so i found this book boring..

all it did was repeat itself over and over again about eating every three hours. which IS a good idea & highly beneficial. i understand that it repeated itself to drill it into people's heads.. but its literally all that i learned.

i LOVE that it gave a list of ideas for snacks & even fast food choices.

Logical and motivational with a lot of success stories. Provides frozen food and restaurant choices, but more recipes would have been nice. Also contains a 28-day journal for accountability.
Didn't rate it. Great ideas and quite educational about becoming healthy. I'd like to implement the habits in to my eating regimes. He did do a lot of self promoting though-got a little tiring.

Good book but still has people eating fast food... Like the concept to eat every three hours but for a true health nut I wouldn't choose this book...

Interesting, but I will think about the principle behind it and work with it.
More of his stuff. 3 menu lines for meat eaters, carb fans, and vegetarians.
