Jorge Cruise is known as the country's leading wellness expert for busy people. The New York Times bestselling author of "8 Minutes in the Morning" and "The 3-Hour Diet" also penned "The 12 Second Sequence," which outlines an eight-week diet-and-exercise program based on two 20-minute workouts per week. The idea is to build muscle, which in turn burns more calories even when the body is at rest. In order to do this, you must eat an ample amount of protein, and that's where Jorge's Packs Shakes come in.
Jorge's diet strategy is based on his three-hour diet plan. This means eating every three hours; or more specifically, three meals alternating with three snacks throughout the day. The daily diet is made up of 40 percent protein, 40 percent carbs and 20 percent fat. Cruise suggests having three whey protein shakes for your three snacks. The body absorbs whey protein more readily than any other kind. Says Cruise in "The 12 Second Sequence," "[W]hey protein shakes are the best way to feed your muscles what they need to build and repair themselves after your workouts."
Whey protein offers other benefits as well, including reducing blood pressure and cholesterol, and is associated with lower rates of certain cancers.
Jorge's Packs Shakes
These prepackaged shake mixes are low in carbohydrate, high in calcium and contain essential vitamins and minerals. They come in chocolate, strawberry, vanilla or a combination of the three. You can buy Jorge's packs exclusively online at http://jorgespacks.com. Jorge suggests mixing the shake with water (for the least amount of calories) but you can use milk, yogurt, soy milk or other drink of your choice.
