- 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!!
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, 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 four sets of 12 repetitions for each exercise. The only equpiment you need is a set of dumbbells. 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!
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.
As a lifelong yo-yo dieter and well-versed in nutrition (although in the past this didn't keep me from eating wrong anyway), Jorge's plan seemed safe, nutritionally sound and quite possibly do-able for me. The text read smoothly and offered interesting sidebars showing the dramatic results his clients experienced while on his program. Even though some of the exclamations of life-changing results of epic proportions rang a bit bogus to me, (I know for a fact that weight loss can make you healthier, but not necessarily happier), I liked the straightforward message Mr. Cruise was sending. If you try, even just a little, to live a healthier lifestyle, you will become healthier. That, combined with the sweet simplicity of the program itself, was enough for me to give it a shot.
I've been on the program for two weeks now and have lost a total of 9 lbs., thanks partially to the near-starvation diet that comprises the first week. It is pure torture, no two ways about it, but it does help rid the body of toxins (especially if you drink the recommended 8 or more glasses of water daily) and set you up with the right frame of mind regarding food as fuel instead of for gratification.
I found the daily affirmations fun but by no means necessary, nor did I eschew caffeine or my once-daily teaspoon of sugar in my evening herbal tea. I also did not change from regular milk to soy as he suggests.Read more ›
