Jorge Cruise: Lose 18 lbs in 2 weeks on 'The 100' low carb diet

3 years ago

Jorge Cruise is the author of "The 100: Count ONLY Sugar Calories and Lose Up to 18 Lbs. in 2 Weeks" (click here to order now).

In an exclusive interview reported in the Examiner, he said that the term 100 refers to what Jorge calls "sugar calories," which he says "are the only calories that truly count because they cause spikes in insulin, the weight gain hormone."

The concern: Your body treats carbohydrates in the same way as sugar, so Jorge calculates sugar calories by multiplying each gram of total carbohydrates in a product by four, which is the number of calories in one gram of carbohydrates.

In other words, you can eat 25 carbohydrates total daily (which equals 100 "sugar calories") to lose up to 18 pounds in two weeks by following Jorge's diet. The good news: His plan also offers what he calls "freebies," which are foods without carbohydrates such as eggs, salmon and poultry.

His other books include "Happy Hormones, Slim Belly: Over 40? Lose 7 lbs. the First Week, and Then 2 lbs. Weekly— Guaranteed" and "The Belly Fat Cure Fast Track: Discover the Ultimate Carb Swap and Drop Up to 14 lbs. the First 14 Days" (click for details).

Jorge's recipe for Chocolate Lace Cookies follows. 

Ingredients

Preheat to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl (dark chocolate pieces and walnuts last after everything else is mixed), then freeze for 5 minutes. Spoon onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
