Product Description

Amazon Review

If you have 30-plus pounds to lose, Jorge Cruise--fitness trainer to millions via his Web site, media appearances and earlier bestselling books--promises success with this 28-day programme. First, he says, stop sabotaging yourself: "Accept yourself whatever your size" and "Eliminate emotional eating by healing your hungry heart". Aim for a healthy, realistic weight: "Some people are at their best and healthiest weight at size 12, 16, or 24," he writes. Cruise describes how to stop using food to numb pain--instead, seek out nurturing friendships to overcome emotional eating. He echoes the "eight-minute" theme of his first book, emphasising emotional success as well as exercising and eating right.

His system of "Cruise Moves"--an easy, eight-minute, muscle-strengthening programme--is less vigorous than that in his earlier book: it's easier on knees and backs and requires no equipment. The "Cruise Down Plate" eating plan is a simple way to eat proper portions of nutritious foods without counting calories or eliminating favorites. This motivational, practical book looks slick--full-colour on glossy paper--and is a workbook for getting started. Cruise's style is chatty and personal, with anecdotes and photos of people who lost 30 to 75 pounds and are happy with their bodies. It's recommended for people willing to change their attitudes as well as their weight. --Joan Price, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this book with some scepticism as I own about a hundred 'easy ways to lose weight ' books!!
All I will say is that I have rigidly followed the advice from Jorge Cruise and have lost over 10lbs in 2 weeks!
The exercises are easy with no special equipment needed. As long as you do them first thing in the morning and follow the healthy eating plan (watch portion sizes and eat every 3 hours) and drink 8 glasses of water daily, I don't see how ANYONE can fail to lose weight!Try it!

I think this book is great. The exersizes are easy and quick therefore offering no excuses for not doing them. Who doesn't have 8 minutes to exersize? It also helps get to the root of the overeatiing problem for all of us who are emotional eaters. I think it is a plan for anyone. I suggest anyone who is interested in health to consider purchasing this book. Suggested meals are also tasty. What I especially like about Jorge Cruise is that he does not suggest any diet that requires giving up some ingredients such as fats or carbohydrates. NO counting of calories or banning of foods - that fits me well! I reccomend this book for anyone who needs to lose some pounds, especially those who have had trouble sticking to programs in the past! Actually it worked for me best when I combined Jorge's advice from this book with a healthy lifestyle very well presented in the book "Can We Live 150". You do not only want to lose pounds, but you also want to feel grate and live long, don't you?

What a fabulous book: I bought this after failing on a diet and wasimpressed with it's sensible advice. This book is for real people withreal lives who don't want to be preoccupied with calorie-counting. Youreally do feel great following this plan; it's amazing, but the blurb onthe book is true. It works !

Some genuinely useful content within this book, but how much 'happy-happy' guff in the first 100 pages. I was starting to wonder if we'd ever get to the exercises. Less is more, Mr.Cruise ,

Am really impressed with this 'regime' which is easy to follow and not too onerous particularly when you have a large amount of weight to lose but it does need patience - it is not a quick fix. It is essential to read the preamble and prepare yourself but once done the exercises are easy to follow. I am liking it very much and would recommend this to anybody who feels to self-conscious at this stage to go to the gym.
