THE 19-DAY WEIGHT-LOSS PLAN • Are you ready for this? The next two-plus weeks are going to require some changes in your life and on your plate, but they’re simple and incredibly effective. We asked Jorge Cruise, founder of the Cruise Control method, to break down how he’s helped hundreds of clients get to healthier weights and feel great about themselves. Now it’s your turn.
