Week 1, Day 1 - So Far So Good!

Well, I am winding up my first day of Jorge Cruise's "The Belly Fat Cure - Fast Track"

I drank my coffee with half & half, a dash of vanilla extract & 1 bit of Stevia.  I must say it was quite good and made it easier to give up my sugar free, vanilla sweetener that I have been hooked on.

It has also been interesting not eating any grains.  I am a girl who loves her grains, especially my Ezekiel sprouted grain bread.  Hopefully i will be okay these next 2 weeks of the fast track program.  I am entering into night time which is when I usually have strong cravings for sweets and choxolate, but thankfully Jorge has made arrangements for that and allows me to have some dark chocolate.  I can even have red wine or a hot beverage if I like.  But I am really going to try and not indulge unless I really have to.

Meal #1:   9:30 am - 2 slices uncured bacon, 2 eggs, 1 slice of cheddar, coffee with half & half , vanilla & stevia.  (Probiotic taken 30 minnutes after this meal)
Snack:    11:30 am - 20 raw almonds
Meal #2:  2:30 pm - 3 oz of chicken, 1 1/2 cups of broccoli cooked in olive oil with fresh garlic.
Snack:  4:00 pm - 12 raw almonds, 1 Tsp Almond butter, 2 Tbs of shredded parmesan cheese. (Probiotic taken 30 minutes after this meal)
Meal #3: 9:00 pm - 4 oz chicken breast, asparagus, shredded parmesan cheese, 2 pats of butter (Probiotic taken 30 minutes after this meal)
Sugar: 7.0 gms
Carbs: 33.1
Water: 9 glasses

Hey Gina,

You've completely revamped your blog. Sorry I haven't visited in awhile. Yay you're on the Fast Track. I hope it works well for you.

A suggestion from my trainer/nutritionist/alt health friend. She said to take probiotic at the beginning of the day on an empty stomach before eating anything. Somehow that helps with better digestion as you eat throughout the day.

Hope you find on the Fast Track that your cravings are nicked. I'm on Wk 4, Day 3 (Day 24) and NO CRAVINGS throughout this whole time.

You can do it!
