Celebrity Trainer Jorge Cruise’s Tiny and Full Promises Results with One Simple Change

tiny and full

Celebrity trainer Jorge Cruise‘s new book Tiny and Full will be released just in time for the holidays and promises you a smaller waist by only changing one meal a day.

The premise is simple: follow a vegan diet for breakfast. Then, go back to incorporating animal-based foods for lunch and dinner, while still keeping a heavy emphasis on plant-based foods.

“When I say vegan,” Cruise told Diets In Review exclusively, “I mean in the truest, most natural form of vegan. A whole food (minimally processed), plant-based diet. Potato chips and Coke are technically vegan, but I encourage the healthiest, most natural form of vegan possible with whole, plant-based foods.”

Why just breakfast? you may be asking. There are two main reasons.

“There are numerous studies showing that determination and drive are almost always strongest in the morning hours when you are fresh,” explains Cruise. “This is because willpower is like a muscle — it’s strongest when it has been given good rest and restoration.” Focusing on breakfast, when your resolve is highest, gives you the best odds for success.

Just one meal is all it takes, though. Cruise makes it clear he is not an advocate for becoming a full time vegan.

“For most of us, it’s a lifestyle change that is just too hard to maintain,” said Cruise. “There are more people who have quit being vegan than there are those who are actual vegans. I intentionally created Tiny and Full as a part-time vegan program to help you get the benefits of the vegan diet but avoid the negatives.”

Belly Fat Cure Launches New iPhone and iPad App

Belly Fat Cure iPhone App Screen ShotJorge Cruise’s popular diet, The Belly Fat Cure, just got a little easier to follow with the launch of a new iPhone and iPad app. The Belly Fat Cure Sugar and Carb Counter is the latest incarnation of the diet, which promises to banish belly fat and help you lose 9 pounds in just one week. As the title would suggest, the diet hinges on the idea of limiting sugars and carbs, and the companion app makes keeping track of these nutrients easy.

I took the app for a little test run this afternoon, and found it to be intuitive and easy to use. The diet is clearly explained in the app, although you will benefit from also reading the book. Like almost any food-journaling app, The Belly Fat Cure Sugar and Carb Counter allows you to track all the food you eat during a day by selecting items from a database. However, this app keeps a constant reminder of how many servings of carbs and grams of sugar you eat in a day.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Gets Last Word on Weight

I can’t get enough “Love”…

Over the summer, I commented on the fake outrage over Jennifer Love Hewitt’s fake weight issues. Well, I guess the outrage isn’t fake, but the whole ordeal is certainly much ado about nothing. Hewitt hopes to put it to rest once and for all.

If you don’t know about this trivial nonsense, Hewitt was made fun of for beach pictures that revealed that, gasp, she was a human being with real life un-airbrushed blemishes. She attacked the tabloid onslaught by defending womanhood, warts and all.

So when she subsequently lost weight and it was spotlighted in US magazine, she was promptly attacked again for supposedly being a hypocrite. Point being, if it didn’t matter, then why would she lose the weight? The people of course missed the point, which was that it’s mean spirited to attack anyone who doesn’t look like a cartoon character of the female figure. (more…)
