Week 1, Day 3 - Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure - Fast track

Ahhh, another day gone and I am doing well.  I actually find that if I keep busy I am not really hungry.  I know we are not supposed to count calories but I was shocked to find out that today I only had about 849 calories.  Here is my meal plan:

Meal #1: 9:00 am - 2 slices uncured bacon, 1 eggs, coffee with half & half , vanilla & stevia. (Probiotic taken 30 minnutes after this meal)
Snack: No snack
Meal #2:  2:30 pm - 4 oz of chicken, 2 cup of arugula, shredded parmesan cheese, olive oil , lemon & garlic dressing.  A few roasted peppers, 1/4 avocado (Probiotic taken 30 minutes after this meal)
Snack:  No snack
Meal #3: 4 oz grilled chicken breast, 2 cups cauliflower, hot sauce., 2 pats of butter. 2 tbs shredded parmesan cheese. (Probiotic taken 30 minutes after this meal)
Sugar: 5.7 gms
Carbs: 18g
Water: 9 glasses

Awesome workout this morning.  I did a new Interval Workout:

Warm Up for 5 minutes
First Intervals:  5 minutes
30 seconds on, 30 seconds rest.
Walk for 5 minutes
8 - 10 Intervals
45 seconds on, 2 minutes walking
Cool Down: 5 Minutes.

Hi Again Gina,

You're doing great. I didn't count anything during Jorge's Fast Track and the only thing I'm counting now is sugar because of Scott's 2-Week Challenge. Wow, that's low in calories.

I had so much energy during those 2 weeks and even now for still being sick, I still have more energy than when I was eating a lot more sugar.

How are your cravings? Do you have any? I'm so proud of you. Keep up the good work.

I hate counting all that stuff, so I'm not. I can't wait until I'm totally well so then I feel hungrier to eat more and doing those tough HIIT Spartacus workouts (I know you can do these, too). They are fun.

Hey Doris, Thanks so much. I am going to look into the Spartacus workouts, they sound like something I would "enjoy", lol. I do feel better and I have lost almost 6 lbs in 4 days so I am really happy. I am not too concerned about the fat in Jorge's plan but I do want to be sure that I don't eat anything I think would be unhealthy for me. I am sticking to no grains and minimal sugar for the first 2 weeks, then I plan to add back some of the healthy carbs. I am already seeing ways to tweak some of Jorge's recips from his first belly fat cure book, so I can't wait.

Yay for you!!! I knew this would help you and work. I read in your Day 4 that you haven't had any cravings either. I tell you, it's the grains/starches. It'll be interesting to see that when you do add those things back in, what will happen to cravings.

As you go through the 2 weeks, if you have no cravings and then you add back a little complex carbs and find you do get cravings, what do you think you will do?

I haven't read his first BFC book, or if I did, I didn't like the layout or something and never finished.

The new book is mostly recipes to make over "belly bad" foods, but in the book he allows you to eat a lot of carbs (tortillas, whole wheat buns, etc) that make me nervous so I plan to try and remake his recipes even better. He gives guidlines on what to eat, etc, and it has a lot of the before and after stories of clients like his second book does. I got the combo pack of belly fat cure that came with the original book & the sugar carb counter. I do like the sugar/carb counter as you can look up things easily (and it is compact in size so you can put it in your purse), but I find I still need to go online and look things up when I am making my own recipes to figure it all out.

I am almost afraid to go back to the carbs. I haven't had any sweets including the dark chocolate since I strated on Sunday. So far so good. I don't crave things, just miss having them is all, lol. I LOVE food ☺

I am so happy you are doing well on this program. I was worried as I went to look up reviews and read so many bad things about Jorge, it scared me, but then I figured that most people who post reviews are usually people who are not satisfied so I took it with a grain of salt.
