A Diet With No Food Off Limits? Does 'Cruise Control' Work?

Playing

A diet where you can eat whatever you want and lose weight?

"There's no food that's off limits, absolutely none, there's no deprivation," Jorge Cruise, celebrity trainer and author of "The Cruise Control Diet," told Inside Edition. 

There is one caveat, however: He sayd you can only eat within an eight-hour window every day. It's called intermittent fasting.

"It's really understanding that you can enjoy fasting without starvation," Jorge said.

He said that as long as you eat or drink healthy fats, you'll feel full those other 16 hours of the day. 

"Healthy fats will stop hunger, you won't feel hungry, and it's indulgent and it's delicious," he said.

To break the fast, start with a healthy salad for lunch and try adding avocado, Jorge said. Then, "enjoy a beautiful dinner: pasta, a big salad, pizza, fried rice," he added.

Jorge, who's written over 25 diet books, said that this is his favorite plan yet. 

"This gives you the most amount of freedom and confidence. ... People can do this long-term," he said.
