Winner and Favorite Posts

And the winner of the Belly Fat Cure Fast Track Book is:
Which is Saira Noman! Congratulations Saira! Ithink the Fast Track will be perfect if you only have 25 lbs to lose. Please let us know how the plan works for you. You can send me an email at meandjorge@gmail.com and I'll get your book ordered on Amazon ASAP!

Thanks to everyone who entered! If you don't have a copy yet and still want one they are $15 at Target $12 at Costco and about $11 at Amazon. I have already loaned out my copy, or I'm holding my breath for a signed copy from Jorge ;-) I will be doing more Fast Track posts in the coming weeks and then after my big race on 10/2 I will be hosting a FT Challenge and would love for you all to join me!

Extensive Belly Fat Cure Shopping List. Go ahead, print it off an take it to the store! I've spent lots of time scouring the shelves to find products and foods that fit the plan. It includes many products from Jorge Cruise's book, but other products that are new or just not mentioned in the book.  If I missed something good,  please leave a comment to let me know!

A low carb diet where we get to eat bread? Yep, as long as it is the right bread! Best breads on the Belly Fat Cure is a post I point people to all the time, I hope you find it useful too. There are lots of breads that work on the plan, not just Ezekiel. (You can also check out the Best Crackers and Best Cereals on the BFC too!)

Cauliflower Crust Pizza, this pizza changed my Sunday nights (which is Pizza Night in my house). That's right, the crust is made of shredded cauliflower and it doesn't have any wheat. It's filling and yummy and perfect for the Fast Track. If you don't love it the first time you try it, try it again after awhile.

I truly believe that giving up the artificial sweeteners (aspartame, saccharin and sucralose/splenda) has been one the most important factors in getting and keeping my weight off. It was hard to do (in theory, but not actually in practice) and I had to be convinced to do it. Have you given them up yet? For some reason I still have the last few Coke Zeros sitting my garage refrigerator. (Here is a list of replacement sodas that use Stevia instead of all those chemicals)

And just in case you haven't fallen in love with Dark Chocolate, I have tried and reviewed nearly a zillion chocolates for you. I've tracked them down complete with S/C Value and Fiber counts. My favorite is still Ghirardelli 86% Midnight Reverie, but believe it or not I still have a few more to review. If you've found any chocolates that work on the plan that aren't on my list, please let me know! I won't rest until I've reviewed them all....


  1. Congratulations Saira!

    Man, I was just at Costco yesterday. I wish I would have known the book was there. *sigh*

    Thanks for all you do, Amber!

  2. I'll be interested in hearing more about what you have to say about the Fast Track. I think I might do the challenge with you in Oct.

  3. I just bought the FT book and have not had time to read it yet but I made sure to hunt down your before and after photo....amazing.

  4. Thanks for reminding us of all the good posts you have written. You are my reference guide for all things BFC!!
