Jorge Cruise 3-Hour Diet

Jorge Cruise teaches you how to eat every 3 hours and lose weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Fitness expert Jorge Cruise presents a simple dietary plan that he guarantees will help you drop two pounds each week and quickly see belly fat fade away. The 3-Hour Diet suggests that from the time you wake until three hours before bed, you should eat every three hours, including three meals and 2 snacks.

The worst part of any diet is the list of restricted and acceptable foods. Jorge suggests that these prohibitive plans encourage failure. That's why Jorge says "there are no bad foods, only bad timing and servings." Yes, you can eat exactly what you want, including all of your favorites. The 3-Hour Diet says when you fix your plate, half should be filled with vegetables, a protein the size of a deck of cards and a Rubik's cube amount of carbs. Jorge has guidelines in place to help you meet your goals, and allow you to indulge in chocolate, bread, pasta and even hitting the drive-thru.

With research backing Jorge's 3-Hour Diet program, he shows how eating every third hour will help your body turn off its SPM, or Starvation Protection Mechanism. Jorge says that the SPM is responsible for storing fat, slowing metabolism and eating away at muscle, preventing lean muscle from burning fat.

PRO
  • Program encourages frequent eating
  • No foods are off limits
  • Eating so frequently encourages your metabolism to be much higher
  • Recipes available for meat lovers, carb lovers, vegetarians, dessert lovers and those that love fast food
  • Numerous success stories featured on site
CON
  • Some might find it difficult to incorporate meals while working or running errands
  • Costs are billed quarterly, which might be a significant cost all at once depending on your budget
DIET and NUTRITION

Meals for each member are created from a database of thousands of options. Members eat every three hours which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks throughout the day. The diet works by keeping blood sugar levels steady and controlling your appetite. Keeping your body fueled allows your metabolism to speed up and burn fat and calories. Members are kept accountable for their progress through one on one coaching sessions with Jorge through online videos.

EXERCISE

Membership comes with daily video coaching. Cruise has several books that address fitness. However there is no fitness program outlined on the web site.

CONCLUSION

Dieters come to the 3-Hour Diet with a positive attitude knowing that they aren’t going to be neaten down by a highly restrictive eating plan. Time your meals correctly and get in some moderate exercise and you should see results. This is common sense healthy living.

How does the 3-hour diet work for 3rd shifters? I work third shift and I was wondering about the times to eat on the 3-hour diet for third shifters. It doesn't mention any eating program to eat at night instead of the day.

I absolutely love this diet. I've been one of those chubby people since I started school, and have tried weight watchers, and numerous other diets, but this is the only one I could stick to and still enjoy. It helped me before I began high school to really lose the weight I wanted. I lost approx 40lbs and went from a size 14 to a size 8, it was really a wonderful diet, and I've recently started it up again. =)

I am 5ft 3in. I weighed about 190 pounds, I was on the 3 hour diet for 2 months and successfully lost 30 pounds. This diet works if you stick to 3 meals a day with 2 snacks and a treat. Keep all your meals under 400 calories, snacks to 100 calories and a treat for 50 calories. You will definately lose the weight!

A friend told me about it. She lost 13# in 4 weeks and her husband lost a whole belt size; they are still on it. I recently started and it's easy, but you do have to plan a bit. Lists of fast foods, too, in case you are out and about. I haven't been hungry, except a little between my afternoon snack and dinner. I don't go to bed hungry or craving anything.

I'm on Day 9 of this diet and have already lost 4 pounds! And I'm a 58 year old woman who has not been able to make the post menopause pounds budge. I'm excited to be getting my old (or should I say "young") body back!

Been on this diet for about 3 weeks, and I've already lost 8 pounds! I'm a college student, work out moderately, about 5 times a week, and when I'm not able to be back at the apt, I just pack a 100-calorie snack in my bag to eat at the correct time during class. I've found that eating oatmeal in the morning is very filling (within one hour of waking) and drinking tea sweetened with splenda between snacks/meals is very helpful in curbing cravings- or at least killing some time before eating. I've also found stopping eating 3 hours before bed can be quite difficult, so instead of continuing to make myself go to bed early every night, celery is a perfect snack. I have stopped drinking alcohol as well, and this has pretty much put a damper on my nightlife, but I can deal for a few more weeks. Although this diet says you can eat "bad" foods in small portions, I've decided to stick to healthier choices at least until I've reached my goal weight. And if you're like me, eating more of the healthy foods is more satisfying than eating a tiny portion of a "bad" food choice. Just make sure that meals are around 300-450 calories, and snacks are around 100 calories and try eating whole grains instead of the "white" choices because your body takes longer to break them down. Good luck! =)

This diet has made me understand that food isn't everything and that i can do other things to entertain myself!! i have already lost 23 pounds on this diet, but really it feels like a hundred pounds. i can finally play with my kids!! thanks 3 hour


lydiaq

this diet seems to cut out some important food groups, mind you im only 15, but this used to be an obsesion of mine(weight) and i know all about the things that work and the things that waist time, eating smaller amounts of food through out the day is a healthy thing to do...but dont count on it when it comes to making you lose weight. calories in must be less than calories out to lose weight, keep this in mind because its the only factor in losing weight once you can no longer rely on your matabolism, so this along with regular exercise will infact help you lose weight...thnk you for listening~lydia

The 3-hour diet is excellent. You could actually eat a variety of foods and feel healthy.


Steve

I really like the sound of a 3 hour diet. Not the most patient person.


Shelby J

I used this ruitine for two or three weeks with balanced meals and actually dropped nearly ten pounds. Finding a way to haul meals to school is difficult sometimes but it's doable.


Deb42

I just started and I'm already feeling great. I also decided to skip the fast food-thx anyway 3 hour. This is going to be something I can definetely stick with.


Cassie

Finally! Something that is making a difference. 3 Hour Diet has helped me lose about 10 pounds already- just a few weeks!! Give it a try and good luck!!


Melissa

This sounds like it makes sense. I've heard that any smaller meals throughout the day is healthier, this plan might just help me beat this once and for all. I don't know about the drive-thru being the best idea under any diet though.
