I've been cooking a lot lately from the Fast Track book and wanted to share what I've made.
Mom quit the Fast Track (she lasted about 3 weeks), She found it too hard to combine with WW where she was already a Lifetime Member and she didn't want to "lie" at her weekly meetings ;-) She won't deny that she suffers from Dieters ADD. 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've just put together a quick guide for the Belly Fat Cure Diet plan that I wanted to share with you all! 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). I really don't care what my calorie settings are, as I don't count or pay attention to them (honestly, I don't).
Here is a day from this week where I had a gathering where I knew I would be drinking, so I ate a little lighter than usual. If you have an Android phone, you can simply use a barcode app to scan this QR Code and get My Fitness Pal! 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 LOVE that everything under the sun is already in the database and other users have validated the nutritional values.
If you have tips on how to use MFP with the BFC, please let me know in the comments section.
Please contact the content providers to delete copyright contents if any and email us, we'll remove relevant links or contents immediately. I have an old post where I made a Fast Track brunch for all my friends when I was on the Rachael Ray Show. 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.
MFP decided I should have 1200 calories a day, and I didn't argue with that, so 40% is the proper setting to get 120 grams. I also love that with Quick Tools: Remember Meal I can save my own recipes very easily and save my common meals.
I would usually have a light breakfast and no wine at all, so it's isn't a real typical day. Combining this discovery with the burn-boosting power of the Ultimate Carb Swap, you will lose up to 14 lbs. 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.
For example, I made an entry called "Home Coffee" that consists of coffee, benefiber, heavy cream and coconut oil. And despite not being mentioned in the book, Coconut Flour is just fine on the Fast Track and Belly Fat Cure alike. 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.
I did the same thing for my Zucchini Lasagna and then when I have a portion I just use .25 of the recipe.
This doctor-approved, science-based solution includes yummy foods such as cookies, pancakes, burgers, and even wine.
Just be careful with the portions though, because even though it is low in carbs, they can add up. 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.
This revised edition of the book is updated with a completely new chapter-Simply Fit, with Belly-Burning Workouts.
I've already posted these, but here is my Mom's Chocolate Almond Lace Cookies (2nd batch looked more appetizing than the first she said) and my Black & Blue Burger. 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. They were heavy and crumbled when I cut them or tried to fold them in half for Brian (son) to pick up. 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 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 like to keep my IPAD on my kitchen counter, and use it to track, but the MFP app shows up very small on the screen. I want to make them again as everyone raves over them,I am trying the zucchini Lasagna tomorrow for dinner. I have been printing all the recipes.Thanks for all you do for us and for relating your success. The fat secret app is very similar, but fills the whole screen and you can just tap all that you eat.
