Please, before you judge or listen to the negative reviews let me say something. I started working this plan when very little information was available about it May of 2009. I did it when there was no book and only limited information available via the internet. Basically I took the 15 sugar 6 carb idea from Jorge and ran with it. So far I have lost 60 lbs on the Belly Fat Cure and I plan to lose 30 more to reach my goal. Those people writing negative reviews just want to open a book and have the weight fall off their bodies. You have to take control and want this for yourself. Read the book for insight and understanding and not just to be led around like a puppet.

Second, I live in a rural area with no Whole Foods Market or anything around and have to travel far for a health food store or order online to get some of the items that are in book. But not all of them. Jorge just gives the healthiest options, but you can make substitutions. If something is not available in your area, use something else. Most of us don't know that these healthier products exist. We let the mainstream dictate what we are putting in our bodies and feeding to our children. What we should be doing instead of attacking Jorge is to demand that these healthier options be made more readily available to us in our local markets. A lot of what he proposes include no artificial sweetners because of their alleged negative affects. If this isn't a concern of yours then make a substitution that includes artificial sweetners. I'm sure Jorge wouldn't advocate this but I have to admit that I do use some of the products that are on his Belly Bad List. I make the food and the plan work for me. For instance, Jorge doesn't like sugar free puddings that you can buy on the shelf because of the artificial sweetners.

I was introduced to the Belly Fat Cure in March as a result of an article in Costco's Costco Connection magazine and applied to be his coaching class for Costco members. I had been selected to take part in the program and during the course of the 11 weeks of coaching, was able to shed 47 pounds and 10 inches off my belly. I religiously followed the program during the coaching and tracked every meal making sure that no meals exceeded the recommended 5 grams of sugar and 2 carb servings. I was also taking probiotics and psyllium husks three times a day. The pounds literally were just melting right off of me.

I also want to note that I had started a running program in December of 2008 and by the time I started the Belly Fat Cure program, I had gone from not being able to run much of one mile to running three miles the whole way and was running 5 to 6 days a week. The running didn't result in any weight loss at all for me, just increased endurance. Once I added the Belly Fat Cure program, I started seeing weight loss.

Like Corrie Hearn's review, the book as it exists now wasn't available, we just got the core information about not exceeding 15 grams of sugar and 6 carb servings per day. We were taught how to read nutrition labels (that information is in the book) and given some key suggestions. We definitely did not the recipes and for that matter initially the food list. We did get that a few weeks in as an Excel spreadsheet. So essentially we had to "figure it out." It took a little trial and error but I started losing weight right away and inches. Some weeks I lost more than others, some I plateaued but stuck with it and it started falling off again.

I started this program exactly 1 week ago. My original weight was 233 lbs., I'm now 219 lbs. on the dot. I have lost 14 lbs all together. In the book, Jorge gives you different ways to eat, be it home made meals, or meals on the go. I chose the fast meals, because I work nights and barely have time to cook. I won't lie though, it is hard, the first few days, you'll be hungry and temptation will be on your face every day; specially if you love Coca-Cola or any other soft drinks. That was the hardest part for me, seeing my co-workers drink and nice,cold, sweaty orange fanta.....it was hard.

This program tells you to limit your carb intake to 6 servings per day and your sugar to only 15gm a day! compared to a single coke, which contains 40+gms of sugar.

Some of the brands in the book are hard to find, but you can always substitute with others, as long as you follow the guidelines. I must say though, if you are a fruit lover, this diet might not be for you, because as we all know, most fruits have high levels of sugar and this program is a low sugar one, so you may find it hard to adjust. Also, since I started the program, I have suffered from light constipation, but I took care of it with baby spinach.

Like I said before, the book only allows a max of 15gm of sugar a day, since the day I started, I kept the sugar intake to a max of 11gm, which is bellow the recommended amount, I did however take all my carbs, no more than six or lessn than five though. I've been eating egg whites and two bacon strips every morning, two lean cuisine meals (the ones recommened by Jorge ONLY), snacking with chips; the type and amount are in the book, and cheese. No sodas, no fruit juices; only water or mineral water.
