Sugar Calories

According to Jorge Cruise, sugar calories are calories that come from "all carbohydrates."

Cruise is (deliberately) confusing with regard to his use of the word sugar. In the same paragraph on page 89 of his hard-cover book, he writes "I am not saying all carbohydrates and sugars are completely equal" then, a couple of sentences later, he writes "when I say Sugar Calories I mean all carbohydrates [calories]".

Cruise explicitly shows how Sugar Calories are calculated:

"To calculate your Sugar Calories, take the Total Carbohydrate grams (which are the real total sugar grams) and multiply by 4."

In this web app, we calculate sugar calories as Cruise defines them, albeit with better precision. Just note that sugar calories and carb calories are exactly equivalent in Cruise's The 100™ Sugar Calories diet.

Review of Jorge Cruise's The 100™ Sugar Calories Diet

The key principle of Cruise's diet can be summarized in one sentence:
Sugar calories are the only calories you'll need to keep track of.

Certain types of calories do not need to be counted. You can enjoy unlimited amounts of delicious and healthy no-count calories from foods that you love.

You have 100 Sugar Calories a day to consume and you can use them any way you like.

If you choose the right foods, their (non-sugar) calories don't count and you can eat as much as you want.

Cruise's Claim:

Count only sugar calories and lose up to 18 lbs in 2 weeks.

Jorge Cruise Diet: What to Eat and Does It Work?

The 100 Sugar Calories diet is essentially a low-carb diet.

To make this an effective diet, one cannot take Cruise's 100 calories principle literally. Otherwise, you can have multiple 2-pound steaks for breakfast, lunch and dinner and still aren't anywhere near Cruise's 100-sugar-calorie limit. Or take in half a cup of chocolate ice cream and you've already exceeded your daily food allocation.

Eat a variety of foods within your adopted diet guidelines. Good nutrition is more than carbs and calories. You need sufficient intakes of many different micronutrients to be healthy.

Use our web app to evaluate the sugar (carb) calories of the foods you like. Be sensible with your food choices and moderate with your food consumption and many diets will work for you.
