I've just put together a quick guide for the Belly Fat Cure Diet plan that I wanted to share with you all! So yes this is hard to juggle and they all made sacrifices for a bit while I figured it all out!? Oh my, I have seen this question dozens of times and I DO have an answer for you: Who says your doing anything wrong?
If you log in to your Google Drive account, choose File: Make A Copy and you can use it online! I put together a quick Cheat Sheet for Jorge Cruise's Happy Hormones, Slim Belly diet plan.
Jorge Cruise has a new diet book out called Happy Hormones Slim Belly (available on Amazon for $15).
The book says it is written especially for women over 40, and will help us regulate hormones like Serotonin. During the two Slim Days of the diet, you strictly limit your Sugar Calories (or Total Carbohydrates multiplied by 4) to 100. Jorge created a beautiful book trailer for Happy Hormones Slim Belly here and next week I will have a Happy Hormones Slim Belly Cheat Sheet for you to reference!
The 100 Diet - This is where Jorge introduced Sugar Calories, which is Total Carbohydates x 4.
Kindle Note: I see TONS of complaints on Amazon about the Kindle formatting of Jorge's books published by Hay House.
So imagine my disappointment, when I get on the scale in the new year and find my weight up nearly 20 lbs. I've looked around at many other low carb diet plans; Paleo, Wheat Belly, Slow Carb to name a few. On the Belly Fat Cure you track Sugar and Carbs per meal and the daily total isn't as important. Once I entered My Fitness Pal diary for the day, and realized Mary's Gone Crackers are higher carb than I thought, so I went over by a carb serving. I trained for about three months and followed Hal Higdon's Beginners Marathon Training Plan to the "T", until I couldn't. At mile 2 I shed my extra shirt, and was down to two long sleeved shirts, running tights, knee-high compression socks, gloves and a banana that kept my face and neck warm.
Miles 20-23 were fine because I knew I was going to see the family soon and wanted to get there fast.
One month after my sister passed away, I attended a funeral for a friend who had fought a very long battle with cancer.
While many of the other LaCroix flavors easy to find (Berry, Orange, Pample Mousse, Lime, Lemon and Cran-Raspberry) Unfortunately the Coconut is difficult to find. For the Husband's birthday I wanted to make a special veggie dish and came across this recipe, that I decided to modify for both our diets (Me=Low Carb, He=Mostly Vegan). On Amazon it now says "Original Cookbook" on the cover but I'm not sure if all the copies say that.
Only pick up the Fast Track (red) if you are truly interested in going grain-free or have gluten issues. I greatly altered my kids diet to cut way back on the sugar, up the fiber and completely eliminate all artificial sweeteners for them.
I can't buy the specific products where I live that are mentioned in the book, can I still do the Belly Fat Cure? If you have a specific question feel free to leave a comment here and I'll try to answer or others in our wonderful BFC community will help you out.
The book is all about Carb Cycling, where you eat two days of Slim Belly, followed by five days of Happy Belly.
You should avoid grains and starches on these days, and use the Feebies list for the book for most meals.


I think she hit the nail on the head when she said "It's so confusing!" when he recommended a banana on the Happy Days. Jorge has even come out with additional books in the last few years (The 100, Happy Hormones Slim Belly).
At the first water station, the water was frozen, the street was an ice skating rink and half the potta potties were frozen shut!
Two other friends asked me that night to run a full marathon with them, something I had thought about once before but decided I couldn't do it. So far I've built up to 17 miles and ran the San Jose Rock n' Roll Half Marathon last week as a training run.
Out of respect for her children I haven't posted much about her battle with Glioblastoma Multiforme, a very aggressive brain cancer she was diagnosed with in April.
My sister Jenny introduced me to LaCroix Coconut Sparkling Water and I quickly became obsessed!
I thought it would be useful to answer the questions that I get asked the most and see online, I see these over and over again.
On Jorge's FAQ and in the first book he says should get all 6 carb servings, but that could actually mean as little as 35 grams of carbohydrates depending on how you spread them out. Make sure you are getting 25 grams of fiber a day through food, not through chia and flax seeds or supplements.
Pretty much all the products listed in the book are found at Whole Foods and Sprouts, but are difficult to find elsewhere. The first 45 pages explain the plan, the following 200 pages are menus and recipes, and several success stories (but no fabulous photos to accompany those stories, which I missed!) The new book is hardcover, not spiral like the Belly Fat Cure books, and has a pink cover. I am featured on the back cover of this book and it is how I lost the last 10 lbs of my weight. For some reason, I was in completely right place for this, and I can tell you the weight just slipped off. A Cheese stick with Mary's Gone Crackers while my kids enjoy their after school snack is also good. I stayed on the warm bus until just a few minutes before 7am, then lined up near the 4:40 Pace Team. My sister was with me in spirit the whole race and I learned a lot about what I am capable of. And when it gets hard and I'm tired or hurt, I think of my sister and her chemo, radiation, surgeries and constant tests. He usually doesn't have any eggs, but a friend gave me several from her backyard chickens, and those are A-Okay with him. Jorge has moved on from the 3 Hour Diet, which is time and calorie counting based and published in 2006. Plus he answered this question in class once and said what he actually meant was that you need to get your fiber out of the carb servings and less meant less fiber. My kids not overweight to start with and quickly after doing this I could count their ribs, I got freaked out and decided we would not be so strict! But I do love that I know how to order fast food on this plan, Protein Style burger or crunchy tacos are usually good. You will need to make changes to the MFP setup to track the Belly Fat Cure correctly, instructions are HERE.
But instead I got up at 4:40am, rubbed my body with runners glide (to avoid chaffing), pulled on a few layers of untested running clothes and headed out into a 21 degree morning to catch a bus to the starting line of the California International Marathon. When I first started training, before I got shin splints, calf pain and my chest cold I thought I could do it in that time. I don't foresee anymore full marathons, but I finished with a big smile on my face and joy in my heart. These flavors are essence oils extracted from the fruits." It has 0 carbs, sugar, calories and sodium.


After an initial period of sugar withdrawls and low energy, I started to feel so good and my attitude changed.
I got to the half way mark about 5 minutes off my normal Half Marathon time, I was about 2:25 into the race. Running out on the trails brings on tears and laughter with thoughts of her, but then I can move on and there is only the squirrels and deer to see. But in a Q&A section in the back of book it says you could have a drink for a special occasion. I could just picture myself at my goal weight, and was thrilled to start each day, because I knew I was one day closer to be my old self again.
My training started out great and I had worked up to 15 miles and was really feeling great.
Even walking into the Expo the night before, my legs were sore, still sick and I was freezing cold. I also started paying attention (on line) to what low carb doctors were saying (and have been saying for years) - Dr. I envisioned myself being "Jorge's Best Client Ever", and sure enough he put me in his next book, I was featured in a national magazine and THEN they flew me to NYE to be on the Rachael Ray Show. I can only take comfort in knowing she isn't suffering now, because the last four months ravaged her body and mind. Then I covered it with pressed garlic, poured over the cream and egg mixture, and the (optional bacon and) cheese.
But in a way, I knew I had been wallowing in my sadness and I always turn to food for that. There are numerous products that are just as good as the ones in the book at your corner store, no matter where you live.
We were able to work through it, he said I was over training and said to cut back on miles and up my protein intake. Miles 15-19 were the hardest and I ended up walking here and there and not feeling too motivated. Mostly she said "Oh, I hear ya!" because as the older sister, she had been through it all before. I stopped and used a porta pottie and when I came out it was a whole different group of runners and the people I had been running with were all gone. I've sought out most of the products listed in the book and most still sit lounging in my cupboard. I remember another runner coming from behind and saying "Come on, we can do this!" and I nodded was like "Yea" and he said "No, COME ON!". I did the 3 day extreme twice and both times lost weight but when I went back to BFC I would gain. I put together an Amazon list of all the products from the book HERE if you really have to have them.
So with an emphasis on cheese I can see why people with milk allergies might wonder if they can do this plan. He just uses it a lot because you can, definitely not a requirement or important part of the plan. Other than the cheese and butter you have to use dairy very sparingly on the BFC.Yes, that IS extremely annoying!
And I would not have sold it as a new program, but a new feature on the existing one - which is what it is.
I'm struggling with it for my girls as one is 13 and starting to become body conscious.
