Chef Jorge's Recipe Club and the Gang

Jorge Cruise has posted the little get together with me and a few of my Belly Fat Cure friends. We were all a little nervous, but I think I was the most! But it was a beautiful day spent with inspiring people I now call friends, Anthony, Rosalie and Nicole. I wish he had shown more of Ali and her husband Karl, they are a great BFC couple who had a unique perspective on the plan since they were dieting together. I kinda thought they would flash a BEFORE photo on the screen too, but this video is all about the food!

I have to say, I really like all the meals and recipes he has been posting lately and am curious to see more about this Recipe Club he has coming up. So many of the recipes in his books are very simple, but I like these new ones for special occasions. They are a little more sophisticated, you know? One of my sister's (who does WW) saw the video and said something like "what are you all eating and is that really allowed?" It is his Tuscan Chicken (recipe here) and yep, it is totally allowed. It was chicken topped with spinach and mushrooms and then covered in two kinds of cheese. I'm pretty sure she still doesn't believe I ate lots of cheese.

I surprised Jorge when I told him the Taco Plate was one of my favorite BFC foods. But I've made that taco 1,000 times in the last two years it feels like! If you are new here, I was 196 lbs when I started the plan and it took me about 39 weeks to lose 53 lbs. I've been maintaining at this weight for the last 18 or so months. If I can do it, you can do it. I documented every single one of those 39 weeks and my weigh ins HERE.


  1. Oh Yeah - this was so much fun and the food was great! Meeting all of you was even better. I too am disappointed about Karl being cut. This was a great day though! :-)

  2. You and Rosalie look beautiful! Full of confidence and self esteem. I am proud to know both of you ladies.

  3. Our friends are celebrities...you look really good. You've been a walking advertisement for the BFC-and now FT.

  4. I would love to meet jorge cruise!

  5. This looks like such a fun time! You all look so good! I'm also liking his newer recipes and this one in particular looks really good.

  6. It looks like such a nice party you all had! I love the taco plate too, by the way! ;)

  7. Amber, I am behind in reading all the posts, so this is alittle late. I loved the video. You all looked great and I'm sure it was alot of fun!

  8. Amber,
    Loved the video. You are a natural when it comes to being interviewed and stating your points on the BFC. Not only that, you are soooo glamorous! Congratulations on staying true to the plan and motivating so many others to change their lives for great health and a personal feeling of accomplishment and increased self-esteem. Just a proud momma here. Yours truly,

  9. Hi Amber, In the taco recipe, Jorge says that a full serving of Sour Cream is a 1/1 (2 TBS), how is that possible, the total carbs for (2 TBS) is 1, why would that count as a whole carb serving too? shouldn't it be a 1/0? Any carb serving under 4 carbs is a 0. We would only count the 1 towards our sugar count, right?

    Please help! :)
