Belly Fat Cure Menu for the Day

Breakfast: I LOVE my coffee! I used to have it with Sugar Free Coffeemate in all kinds of flavors, and that was one of the last artificial sweetener products I gave up. But a little cream in strong coffee is now my favorite. 1/2- 3/4 Cup of Greek or European Yogurt and a handful of berries are perfect too.

Lunch: I need a quick lunch or else I'll just skip it for lack of time. I make these mini crustless quiches and freeze them. These are sausage & cheese with a big salad. I try to have green with most meals, but usually fail miserably at this!

Dinner: Usually I have the pizza as Jorge Cruise suggests in the book, made with Pita Bread or the Smart & Delicious tortillas. But I found this great Lavash bread at Whole Foods and it makes a bigger pizza and I've been having it for awhile. It doesn't have as good a Fiber content, but still fits in the Belly Fat Cure plan is a good change of pace for a while. 

Snack: Hot tea and 2 squares of Dark Chocolate

What is your favorite meal on the Belly Fat Cure? Leave a comment and share with everyone!


  1. Pizza on pita. We have pepperoni, sausage, and cheese. Gives me a 1/2. Taco with cooked fajita chicken w/ green salsa and sour cream for a 1/1. Lasagne w/ 1/2 lasagne noodle, sausage, ground meat, ricotta, cheese & sauce for a 2/2. Make ahead and freeze. That's what I can think of right now

  2. Cathy, I havent made lasagna on the BFC yet, but I think I will next week. It is a good way to control the amt of pasta & you can load it up with good protein! Thank you for sharing with us!!

  3. Right now my favorite meal is breakfast. I poach two eggs, then take a toasted ezekial english muffin, top the halves with some shredded fresh baby spinach, 1/4 cp of lowfat mexican cheese blend, and 1 tbs of chia seeds. Place a poached egg on top of each half, add some black pepper and green pepper tabasco sauce. I love it! Also love hearing ideas about what others are eating. Thanks Amber!

  4. Amber,
    If you get a chance would you please post your recipe for the mini quiche?

  5. I got the recipe from the new Fast Track book, which apparently isnt out until Spet now. It is 4 eggs, cheese, leeks, little cream. Cut ham slices into squares and line the muffin tin with them. Mix the rest together and pour over ham slices and bake. Its hard to screw this up, and they are good! Kids might like them too (mine hate eggs).

  6. Love your post with the pictures added. I'm a visual learner, and like this teaching tool you're using Amber. I have a slightly different recipe for eggs. I add 4 eggs, little cream, 1/4 cup Swiss cheese, 1 small can of green chili's, all whipped together. Pour it into a buttered square baking pan or round pie pan then bake about it 15 -20 minutes, golden brown on top. Cut it into squares and it's easy to take to a morning brunch.

  7. Amber thank you for your informative post. I am curious to know since you did the BFC for quite some time....if you lost when you switched to the BFC Fast Track and do you still do the Fast Track or are you primarily back to the BFC?

  8. Anon - I switched to the fast track for my last 10 lbs or so, after I had plateaued for a while and saw my weight wasnt going to move. I didnt like FT the first time I did it and went right back to regular BFC. But now I moved between the two plans, and do a modified, much lower grain BFC for maintenance.

  9. cream has unhealthy sat fats and what greek yogurt is sugar free? i have yet to find a yogurt with no sugar and i love the heavy and greek yogurts..ideas? from carole
