Day 1 of 14

Have you read Jorge Cruise's book The Belly Fat Cure?

If you haven't, you should! This guy is a genius. He, and many other people and studies, and found and determined that waist/belly measurement is more important then weight because if you have a large mid section it can lead to a TON of health related issues. Many of you look at this and think, ugh another diet. NO! It's not a diet!

Have you ever noticed that the word diet has the word DIE in it?! No wonder diets don't work and people have a hard time with them! This is a HEALTHY way of living and eating and guess what? You can still eat what you want! All you have to do is have no more then 15 g of sugar a day and 6 servings of carbs. Easy! You should look into this book.

On a side(ish) note though... I bought Jorge Cruise's book that is kind of a sister book to this one.

I don't want to give to much away because it's not my book and I'm a firm believer of buying it yourself. :) There is a 14 day menu in this book, along with recipes, and I am following it. I started today. So far so good! I'm currently eating my snack while typing this out. Yummy, pumpkin seeds! I love pretty much anything pumpkin. 

A super quick idea of what I'm doing. I'm basically going completely off sugar and breads/starches for two weeks. I've already gone 30 days without sugar, two weeks is nothing... Breads however... I LOVE breads. But that may be an area where I'm also addicted to it. So, here it goes. I can do anything for two weeks. That is nothing! 

Thankfully this book has substitutes for things though. Because there are a lot of the dinners that I either don't like or wont make. I refuse to buy any meats other then chicken and turkey (and now fish) because it's WAY to expensive. Except for rare occasions. And you can season the chicken or turkey to taste just like beef! I love it. Chicken absorbs more flavor though.

So if you have read this book or are also doing the fast track, which can be done just for 14 days or for a lifetime, don't get on my case about my pumpkin seeds! It's still a snack item. :P

As you saw yesterday, I threw my scale away so I wont be able to tell you how much I lose weight wise, but I will tell you how much in my measurements! If you would like to see my measurements you can check out my New Beginnings post.

Wish me luck! I'll keep you updated on my progress. :)

Until Next Time!

  1. You'll have to keep us all posted on how it goes because I loved what I read in his book. I'm considering doing just a 7 day jump start on my spring break.
