Format: Paperback
I think Jorge Cruise has a lot to offer and I certainly love his technique, but I believe his first book "8 Minutes in the Morning: A Simple Way to Shed up to 2 Pounds a Week Guaranteed" was by far #1. Here's why:
- 8 min. flat belly had a lot of repeat information from the original 8 minutes, which is to be expected because they both market to others, but if you have already read and followed the original 8 minutes book, I doubt you'll appreciate this one.
- I FELT a lot thinner in all areas while doing the original 8 minutes routine than I ever did while doing the flat belly program. It reccommends mixing hip and thigh spot training with all over body moves, I just didn't feel a difference.
- The original has a few paragraphs of motivation before every routine, lean hips doesn't. The motivation was a big factor for me.
- The original has different routines every day for 4 weeks!! Lean hips has only 1 week of each level (easy, intermediate, hard).
I know every body is different and perhaps if you begin with this book you would like it, but my overall opinion is that the original is #1!!

The book is presented very well and worth the purchase. As noted at the beginning; reading the first two sections provide for a good understanding of why some women accumulate excess fat in the hips and thighs & how cellulite forms & why this series of exercises, stretches and good food choices as a simple lifestyle change; can help you achieve your ideal size. Jorge goes on to list and give suggested food ratios & how often to eat. He also provides 3 segments of 8 minutes of alternating exercise for Monday to Friday, stretches on Saturday and Sunday is a rest day. You do not need any special equipment and he suggests you do the exercises in the morning so your body can benefit from an increased metabolism throughout the day. I started the program a week ago and it is has become very easy to make it part of my daily routine, especially because I do not have to try to fit in or do 60 minutes of exercise/cardio a day. So much of what is explained in the book makes sense; I have also ordered his 8 Minutes in the morning to a Flat Belly book. 16 minutes a day to create lean hips, thin thighs and a flat belly works for me.

Bottom line: This book worked for me!
As a single mother working full time, I have (until now) found it nearly impossible to incorporate regular exercise into my life. Hours in the gym, bulky and expensive equipment, and time constraints are restrictive. This book changed that for me.
The exercises are easy to do, take little time or equipment, and are actually very effective! I have lost pounds and inches (in the right places!), and everyone at work compliments me on my progress. I have more energy too!
Jorge's exercise plan involves two strength-training exercises daily, and you do each exercise for four minutes. The only equpiment you need is a chair and a mat. The total morning routine takes from 8 to 15 minutes, including the brief warmup and stretches afterwards. You roll out of bed, do your exercises for the day, and you're done before you're even fully awake. That's about as easy as it could possibly get---but it works! There are three levels of difficulty, and you progress at your own pace. If level one is too easy, you can start on level two, then after a few weeks move on to level three.
Jorge's diet plan is basically a low-fat, low-calorie diet. He also stresses the benefits of flax oil. I have used the exercises in his book in conjunction with a low to moderate carbohydrate diet, and that has worked well for me. Your mileage may vary.
The book also provides great information about dieting and exercise in general, and gives many good sources to utilize as well. It's easy to read, and well-organized. The personal stories he uses as examples are real people, not supermodels, and I liked that.
I highly recommend this book for busy people like me, who aren't fitness junkies but want to incorporate some exercise into their lives.

expect to hear many success stories of people following Jorge Cruise's "8 minutes in the morning" routine. It is really easy to follow as it takes neither a lot of time nor a lot of effort. I think it is a plan for anyone. I suggest anyone who is interested in health to consider purchasing this book. Suggested meals are also tasty. What I especially like about Jorge Cruise is that he does not suggest any diet that requires giving up some ingredients such as fats or carbohydrates. NO counting of calories or banning of foods - that fits me well!

Similar like M. Tombak in his book "Can We Live 150 Year?" Jorge Cruise makes sure that you have a balanced diet. Dr. Tombak, however, focused more at one's health and longevity rather than good looks. But surprisingly, when you follow Tombak's advice good looks just come about as a natural outcome of good physical and psychological health. If you add to this your "8 minutes in the morning" plan, you are set for success...

This is THE exercise and eating plan book I've been needing all my life! The exercises are so easy and very little equipment is needed. Everyone can spare 8 minutes a day to do them. I feel great, have lost 11 lbs., and my pants are baggy in my thighs in just 4 weeks. The eating plan is very sensible and nutritional. I don't feel deprived at all because I can eat carbs, snacks and a daily treat. The book is easy to read and understand and is based on sound, recent nutritional and exercise standards. Jorge Cruise is the best!
