    The 100 will free you from counting calories and points and constantly trying to eat less with the conclusive truth: all calories are not created equal. Jorge has been working to uncover the latest advances in dietary science for more than a decade, and now the newest science confirms that Sugar Calories are the only calories you'll need to keep track of on this simple, fast, and guilt-free weight-loss plan.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes I would because the book focus is on the sugar contents in carbs; the book does a comparison with calories but it is still counting out the sugar contents of the food. (From the carbs and the sugar that's in the food.)

    I saw this explained on a TV show but did not think much about it until I listen to the audio tape by Jorge Cruise. This is good information but be aware, this is the same as the Atkins diet.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I like the focus on the sugar contents. It is making me aware of my sugar intake. I did not like the interviews; both men were trying to prove how unhealthy sugar is; I don't agree, I believe all foods are beneficial in moderation and I'm not giving up sugar.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes he did, I enjoyed the audio. I listen to the tape in my car and in my home, Fred was a very good narrator.


    Was The 100 Unabridged worth the listening time?

    Yes it was, however I found "The 100" diet to be the same as the Atkins diet. I lost weight with the Atkins diet but could not stay on the diet after the induction. I don't have a need for a lot of bread in my diet but after a few days on Atkins my body 'begged' for some bread. And I tried to follow this plan and did not last two days, again, my body craved grain foods.


    Any additional comments?

    I see that Cruise has a lot of weight lost books but I would recommend that he focus on health not weight lost, and how to incorporate all foods into a diet with the focus on reducing the sugar intake but don't turn it into a low carb diet.

    The freebie foods in the book all have carbs and thereby all contain sugar calories; I believe that Cruise is making the same mistake that FDA made when they put out a pyramid that reduced the fats and increased the grains, fruits and veggies; people got fatter. Help people be balance, how much sugar a day is acceptable?
