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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
