My fiance and I have been doing Jorge Cruises diet and have been pretty successful so far. Before this we were just watching our calories and fat intake and had lost 75 lbs for me and about 50lbs for him. We both gain weight in our midsection especially and came upon his book and figured we would give it a try. At first it sounds impossible but once you get into a routine of it, it isn't too hard. I do have my moments but overall I am liking it so far. I would love to hear from anyone else who is doing this type of diet as well. I lost 3lbs last week and he lost 5lbs. Sunday is our weigh in day so I will update then.
