During the two Slim Days of the diet, you strictly limit your Sugar Calories (or Total Carbohydrates multiplied by 4) to 100. You should avoid grains and starches on these days, and use the Feebies list for the book for most meals. On the Happy Days you can have up to 500 Sugar Calories a day. These five days are said to reset your hormones. Unlike Jorge's other plans, no alcohol is allowed on HHSB - Shocking! But in a Q&A section in the back of book it says you could have a drink for a special occasion. A glass of red wine is recommended in that case.
Jorge created a beautiful book trailer for Happy Hormones Slim Belly here and next week I will have a Happy Hormones Slim Belly Cheat Sheet for you to reference! I'd love to hear your thoughts on this new plan in the comments below.
Jorge was recently on Katie Couric and explained the plan. I think she hit the nail on the head when she said "It's so confusing!" when he recommended a banana on the Happy Days. But watch the segment for a quick explanation.
Jorge has lots of diet plans out there right and it easy to get them confused. Here is a quick break down of how they compare:
Belly Fat Cure Diet - A low carb plan that limits you to a Sugar/Carbohydrate ratio of 15grams/120grams per day. It is referred to as S/C Value and carbohydrates are divided up into servings divided by 4. So he calls it a Max S/C Value of 15/6. It sounds a little confusing, but I love this plan and it is how I lost most of my 54 lbs. More info on my blog about this plan.
Belly Fat Cure Fast Track - Basically a Paleo diet, but with limited dairy allowed. No grains for fruits allowed at all. I am featured on the back cover of this book and it is how I lost the last 10 lbs of my weight. I have also used it at various times to help get back to my goal weight over the years. I like it! More info on my blog about this plan.
The 100 Diet - This is where Jorge introduced Sugar Calories, which is Total Carbohydates x 4. On this plan you can have up to 100 Sugar Calories a day. Kind of like the Belly Fat Cure, but more limited.
Kindle Note: I see TONS of complaints on Amazon about the Kindle formatting of Jorge's books published by Hay House. Sounds like the illustrations and charts don't work on Kindle well, so keep that in mind! If you have an experience with this, please leave a comment and let us all know!
