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
