Jorge Cruise is a nationally known fitness guru who has worked with numerous celebrities to help them achieve their weight loss goals. He has also appeared on many different television programs, including Good Morning America and Oprah and writes a weekly column for USA Today. He has written books and offers products for sale like protein shakes and vitamin packets. His diet plans, with titles like The 3 Hour Diet and The 12 Second Sequence appear to promise results in a minimum amount of time. We will look more closely at this fitness expert to see if his advice and products can really deliver on their promises.

The Jorge Cruise website does not appear to contain much specific information about any of the plans, although links are provided for the various product websites. Cruise seems to just provide enough information to entice dieters with his easy plans and big results; but then they must purchase the book or subscribe to the program to get the full details of the program. However, the books and subscription rates do appear to be pretty reasonably priced, providing dieters with ample information for little money.

Jorge Cruise appears to customize his diet plans to how much weight you need to lose and what your current fitness level might be. We appreciate the fact that his plans seem to incorporate both diet and exercise into the program, although we would like to see a safe weight loss supplement included as well. We find that a supplement that contains a proven fat burner and appetite suppressant can give dieters the edge they need to meet their goals.

Product Features

We are disappointed to find that consumers cannot purchase the Jorge Cruise weight loss books and products directly from the official Jorge Cruise website. However, the links on the website do make it easy for shoppers to find the items, mostly from Amazon. We also like the product websites like the 3 Hour Diet site that provides information and customer testimonials as well as the ability to subscribe to the program. There is a seven day free trial that allows consumers to check out the program and the subscription rate for this particular program is just five dollars a week at the time of this review.

Advantages

  • The Jorge Cruise diet programs incorporate a low calorie diet and exercise.
  • The 3 Hour Diet comes with a seven day free trial.

Disadvantages

  • There is no weight loss supplement included with the programs.
  • The names of the plans appear to promise quick results with minimum efforts.
  • Programs and products cannot be purchased directly from the official Jorge Cruise website.
  • Some individuals experienced weight gain. (See reader comments.)

Conclusion

Many dieters may find success with one of the Jorge Cruise diet programs, and they will be able to choose the plan that best fits their weight loss needs. However, we believe that many dieters also need an effective weight loss supplement with a proven fat burner and appetite suppressant to give them the edge they need to meet their goals. The Jorge Cruise programs do not seem to recommend any such product.

    Seen the 100 on Steve Harvey and decided to try it, I am into my 2nd wk and lost 7lbs. The question I have is about the turkey breast for lunch, it doesn’t say how much it does say turkey breast and the grocery list has 2 surley you can’t eat one at each sitting. How much does it mean?

    My husband & I started the Jorge Cruise diet on 1/6/14, and we had a hard time with the Skinny Muffin. Is there anything else we can substitute for this muffin, or can we add to it. Do we have to drink the wine every night in order for the diet to work, if so what is a good wine to buy?. I don’t like Spinach, can I substitute with green beans, broccoli, or Greens. I’m also having a problem finding Orange roughly Fillets, what other fish can be used?.

    Instead of 2 tsp. of cinnamon, use 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1 tsp. of unsweetened cocoa and definitely add walnuts. I find it tolerable this way and the flaxseed meal really works.

    [Reply]

    I never thought of substituting the cocoa for half of the cinnamon. Thanks for the wonderful idea!

    [Reply]

    Lily

    You don’t have to eat the skinny muffin if you don’t like it! That’s just a good option for people who are used to having carbs in the morning. I have two eggs and two slices of uncured turkey bacon, with a bit of spinach or broccoli for breakfast and I’ve been losing weight just fine.

    As for veg replacements, as long as your swap is on the freebie list it should be fine. Green beans are NOT. You have to count sugar calories for green beans, but not broccoli or spinach, or lots of other veg.

    Of course you don’t have to drink wine! Personally I don’t like wine, so I don’t have it. That’s just a pleasant indulgence for a lot of people, so Jorge Cruise made a point of showing you could still enjoy your favorite things, if wine is a favorite thing.

    [Reply]

    Bellestar

    I didn’t like the Skinny Muffin either. I add 2 tsp of cinnamon and 3 tsp of coconut oil and 3 packets of sweetleaf.

    ALSO…..in his book The Belly Fact Cure CARB SWAP SYSTEM On page 273 has Preserves you can add to your muffin….smear of the preserve.

    I have followed most of Jorge Cruise eating plans and found when I follow the 100 I don’t lose a lot of weight but my triglycerides dropped 100 points and my good cholesterol came within an acceptable range and my blood sugars dropped- I followed the plan for 2 months- I know his plan gives me a much healthier eating plan and I feel healthier when on the plan

    I have used the Jorge Cruise fast track diet. IT WORKS!! You are watching the hidden sugars in your food. I am eating lots and lots of fresh meats, fish and veggies. No processed food with the fast track. I have lost 60 pounds in 5 months and I feel absolutely wonderful. No more aches and pains. Thank you, Jorge.

    The diet was pretty effective but don’t get sucked into paying for the memberships. The cookbooks work fine alone. $52 is a steep price for what you get & don’t forget to cancel before being automatically billed for the next quarter, I did. I canceled right after I was billed $52 for the next quarter, only to find out that my membership would cancel that day. So I paid $52 in advance for absolutely nothing, they deactivated my account and refused to give me the menus & shopping lists I paid for. Their customer service sucks, they don’t care, and you can only communicate to them via email. Don’t do it!

    [Reply]

    Christine

    I agree! When you cancel you immediately lose access to everything you have paid for plus they don’t cancel your account when you submit the request. Instead you get a message stating that they only cancel accounts on Tuesday therefore you will get and email confirming cancellation the following Tuesday, well guess what Tuesday rolled by with no confirmation! What a scam. His website doesn’t even tell you what your account information is, credit card used,paid through date etc.

    [Reply]

    Debbie

    You can always call your credit card and have them remove the charge. Credit cards don’t actually send the money to the recipient until approx 30 days after posting…so, call and explain the situation and they will remove the charge.

    I have been using the belly Fat cure for a year and a half. If you truely stick to the 15 sugar grams or less and 6 servings of cards,120 grams total, the weight will melt off of you. I lost 55 pounds in 4 months and a year and a half later am 60 pounds under my start weight of 270. Don’t try, do. You will get results.

    I have been folling the belly fat diet for about a week now. I have dropped a few lbs. but I am having a hard time with the sugar grams and keeping them under 15. I have been folling the recipes in the book they are really good and I have been following his menus. I’m not having any problems with the carb count, just the sugar. Any suggestions on how to cut the sugar grams?

    [Reply]

    Nancy

    I used the plan last fall and lost 25 lbs! 15 gr sugar IS hard, and I just basically told myself that i wouldn’t eat it. no fruit, no ketchup no french dressing, all things i love. After a week or so I found I had better energy and my sugar and food cravings went away. I did joi a gym too, and averaged about 3x/week. Since the holidays I havent followed the plan very well, and still kept at least 20 of the 25 off, inspite of the occasional donut and cookie. I am ready to kick it back in gear and get rid of another 20. Using this plan and not cheating with extra serving sizes or snacks, and getting some sweat producing exercise a couple times a week, I think I’ll get there!

    really read the labels – there is so much sugar in stuff, esp fruit juice and processed foods. Frozen dinners are really high in sugar.

    If a serving is listed as 0/0, how many servings can you eat of that and still have it count as 0/0? For example, if a serving of sour cream is 0/0, is it still 0/0 if you eat the second serving?

    as long as its 0/0 i imagine u can eat as much as u want of one serving that is..if its two servings then u have to read the label..for instance if one serving has less than a gram of sugar its not counted..but if u have two servings it becomes a gram and u have to count that

    [Reply]

    Brenda

    I disagree with you. I have followed his advise and cut my carbs and sugar. At first following his menu, which you can get online, then making my own by reading labels and really knowing what I eat. I am diabetic and I have had to cut my insulin intake by 10 uints. After starting this I really realized how much sugar I was putting in my body. You can buy alot of the product online but you can also use what is avaliable in your area. Read the label!! It is not a diet, it is a lifestyle change. Quit eating junk.

    I don’t know about you but I lost 12 pounds the first three weeks and I don’t feel like I’m missing anything. I eat ice cream 3 or 4 times a week as well as burgers, tacos and pizza. I am sending a copy of the book to my diabetic father.

    All diets work… for 10% of the population. You have to find the approach that works for you. Keep looking and I’m sure you’ll find the right approach. It works better if you keep an open mind.

    It is very disappointing that this “artist” is more concerned with his NY Times ratings than the quality of his advice to people who follow his bad advice. Diabetics, obese people are usually eager to find a reliable source of support as they achieve the goal of weight loss. It is totally unrealistic to offer someone a less than 1000cal/day diet and expect them to comply.It is unhealthy and unethical. Really bad form.

    My daughter has being on this diet for 5 weeks and all she has lost are 10 pounds!!It is expensive, plus some things are very hard to find. I had a lot of hope when we got the book but i have the feeling is not working very well. He explains how sugar is bad for you and i saw him in Tyra’s program talking about how you are supost to it every 3 hours and he said you can it anything…I don’t get it and i really, really want to help my beautiful daughter loose wait…Any suggestions? Maria

    [Reply]

    maria blanco

    I meant eat anything…..

    [Reply]

    Debra

    I hope this may help. First of all ten pounds in five weeks is two per week which is not only a steady healthy rate in which to loose, it also means it is becoming a life style, and that she has a better chance of keeping it off. As far as the eating every three hrs and it being whatever you want,, I believe this works because it’s only whatever you want that’s allowed on the plan I.e. No sugar. it also says to stop before you Feel full”..so Maria if it’s easy for her to follow, she feels satisfied, and is steadily dropping weight,I think you are helping your beautiful daughter just fine. Good luck!

    Maria, Hi . I just read a lot of diet books.The only thing i believe that eat everything in moderation & if she really wants to lose weight stay away from white sugar & statisfy herself with fruits & no fried food, try to cook healthy for her. Best things really work is exercise. just start like 10 minutes walk after each meal. i just come from family they are plus size& I have 6 sisters I’m Only one have regular size, because it is 30 years i do exercise 5 days a week. I am 53 now & i’m in best shape in my life. i eat a lot but mostly healthy, lots of fruits, vegetables & lean meat& once week swee,i still try stay away from it . it is hard. Good Luck.

    I agree, if you look closely at his plan, it has been proven over and over, look at Atkins, only on Jorge cruise diet you have a lot more options with the ingredients you can use.This in turn makes it even easier to follow. It is good for diabetes also. Good luck :)
