yeah-we are up to 4 pages!! Cosmic-some days may not be perfect. Now if only I could take my own advice. Feeling good today food wise-body image well now that is another story. Trying a zumba class tonight-trying to step out the box with exercise.

I realized today that the reason I have gained weight is no one elses fault but mine. I give myself passes to binge and then get mad at my body for not looking good. I need to take more responsibilty for my health. Me -no one else to blame!

Just starting out with a friend of mine and I am doing all the research on it. Still trying to figure some things out but it sounds like keeping your sugar and carb intake down is working for a lot of people. Hope it does for us tired of being over weight doctor doesn't like it either.

I'm wondering about snacks or finger foods that's what we like at our house not big on traditional meals.

Been very good today but have a night out drinking tonight so...
Ziggy - Nachos are a good snacky food that could work.
Good luck this weekend everyone!

Hi all I will also begin this plan this a.m. I did atkins induction for 3 weeks and have been keeping carbs low-moderate since then lost 9lbs but have gained 2 back. I noticed that my pants are looser, but belly fat is stubborn. I discovered this forum when I googled carbs and belly fat. I am like ziggy prefer finger foods over the big meals. Good to know nachos and pizza are acceptable on this plan, two of my faves. I dont have a specific exercise plan or dvds, been doing the wii fit aerobics & strength training and starting the "lose 2 inches in 7 days" ab workout. When I am consistent with ab workout I usually lose at least an inch in 7 days, my problem is consistency. Anyway, thanks for all the great tips, advice and encouragement on here, good to hear others' stories.
Could someone provide clarification...I bought the genisoy sweet crisps (cinnamon) for a serving carbs=12g, sugar = 6g, protein=3g..on this plan this would be 6/1. is this correct 6 sugar/1 carb serving? and if this is correct, is this allowable or is this too muc sugar for a snack?

thanks

Hi everyone
Very hungover today How many S/Cs are in 5million vodka and diet cokes?! Good news is that I didn't have any chips etc on the way home!

Hi Supaflyy - yes that would fit in with BFC. It does use a lot of your daily sugar allowance but if you love it then go for it! The general rule is not to have more than 2 carb servings at any one time - which that snack doesn't. We don't count protein or anything else. Just S/Cs. It's hard to get your head around at first esp if you are used to other ways of dieting. I love this plan because it fits in with normal life. Once you build up a picture of what can be eaten it is so simple. Also you can still go out to dinner etc. Even though I have occasional lapses, I am still losing. Finally, even though you can eat pizza etc (and I do, often!) try also to include high fibre foods everyday. It's all about the balance! If it wasn't for my love of alcohol on a Friday night I would be a poster girl for this plan!!!

Kimmad - how was Zumba?

Have a great weekend everyone!

The e-book isn't on his website anymore, does anyone have a copy they can email me? It will be hard to try to do this plan. Without reading up on it. I am so intruiged by this plan , it seems so liveable.

Thanks for any help!

Cosmic -Hi! Never got to Zumba -kids had to be everywhere and my dh had to work late-he owns his own company and never stops! I will try again this week. I must say I have had a rough week-lots of emotional eating. I need to get a handle-how can I do sooo well one week and so crappy the next.

I need to re-group. Good Luck everyone -this is really a great plan.
Welcome Kellbell, Supaflyy and Ziggy

Hi Everyone
Mega busy week at work but, with the exception of a party on Friday night, I have stuck to plan.
Kimad sorry to hear about your rough week and the resulting emotional eating. We all go through it at times. But as you said to me, it's no biggie to lapse - forget it and move on. (Easier said than done sometimes, I grant you!!!)

I'd love to know what other people think about Jorge's 12 week plan he mentioned in this week's email...

Have a good Sunday everyone

Ziggy - fajitas work really well too as a snacky meal, if you adjust the ingredients of the fajita mix. I tend to use small (4inch?) wholewheat wraps as, aside from being low S/C, you can eat more of them and it makes me feel like I have eaten more. All in the mind I suppose!!

Hi:

I'm new here. Have been getting Jorge's free emails for about a month and have watched most of the YouTube videos. I have the BFC report and have to agree, the info for counting carbs is a little fuzzy. Notwithstanding, I started in earnest last Tuesday and am hoping for success. I've done WW in the past, reached goal twice but backslid and now need to pare off 25 lbs that have attached themselves mostly to my belly (used to be a pear and am now an apple). I think age has a lot to do with it--I'm 68, but I don't choose to look my age, hence my interest in the BFC.

Jorge is opening his program to his email list tomorrow, but it sounds pretty pricey. I'm hoping to get the needed inspiration in this forum. Anyway, now that I've bored you all...

Good luck on this plan! It really does work IMO. (Make sure you get enough fibre!)

12 Week Program

I really wanted to join, but for $397 I can get his book and do it myself and have a bunch of $$ left over. I'm on my second week of BFC and am down four pounds and 1 1/2 inches.

My favorite of the online recipes is the bacon pizza and arugula salad. (I don't eat pork but found some really good beef bacon.) Also, I can get Clemmy's ice cream here. Yum!

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to posting but have been reading your posts and have been thoroughly enjoying your input as well as your humor!!!!

I have known of the BFC for some time but at that time the info was very sparce and his info was very vague. Just within the last month I've been able to gather enough info to put it all together.

So, I've been doing the BFC for approx 1 month now and I do have to say my clothes are fitting me a whole lot better, thank goodness. Haven't exactly seen any dramatic results on the scale but I have always believed that the scale doesn't always show the true picture and I don't weigh myself too frequently.

Kimad, if you don't mind me saying, I couldn't agree with you more when you said you're torn between his passion and his marketing. I do believe he's passionate about what he does but I find it rather ironic that he's "offering" us join his 12 week program as a special offer since his book isn't coming out for a few months yet. Just seems like a big market ploy. Would seem this has been his plan all along and that he's just trying to make this offer seem extra special. Kinda bothers me because those of us who truly want to improve our health will sometimes jump at an opportunity in an effort to further our committment. Jorge seems to be playing on this and that's not right.

With that said, I do have to say, I am learning a lot about eating this way. Never realized how much sugar I was eating w/o even knowing it. I just viewed sugar in their "snack, cake, etc." form. Never thought much about it even in the healthy foods I would consume daily.

Thanks for your stories and information. I have been enjoying them. Have a great day!

Kimad: yes, Clemmy's is wonderful. I'm a purist so have only tried the vanilla bean, but it is awesome--a real quality ice cream. One of the advantages of living in Santa Cruz (besides the fantastic weather) is that we have an abundance of natural foods stores with lots of great selections. We also have a Trader Joe's and a Costco nearby. I have not found the Maltitol locally--may have to order that. But when I can get Clemmy's and great dark chocolate, the world will not end if I can't make the brownies.

I am wondering if we could have a sticky post just for some of the recipes we've tried. A lack of specifics seems to be the common complaint about Jorge's program. Perhaps we could remedy that with tried and tested recipes?

I've tried the bacon pizza, the rotisserie chicken taco with green sauce and the chocolate whey shake. All are good. (BTW, I don't eat pork so substituted beef bacon on the pizza).

Really trying to start

Was going to start a few weeks ago and just couldn't do it. Read up on it a bit and started today. I feel like I ate too much, but ended up at 11/6 for the day. Even had a few sweet potato fries. I like that you can have some chocolate too. As for Clemmy's, haven't tried it yet because it costs $7.00 here!

I agree with previous posters about the cost of the program... Kind of a bummer, I guess I'll wait for the book.

Clemmy's is $7. here as well, but that's for a quart and about the same price as two Haagen Dasz pints or Strauss or any other premium ice cream. (In another life I tried cheaper grocery store brands and I really can tell the difference. If the ice cream I eat isn't super great, I'd rather not bother.)

The price of the course is pretty high - but I bet it'd be worth it in terms of keeping me accountable!!! I did not sign up, even though I was VERY tempted! Aside from the money issue, most of the products he usually mentions are not available in the UK so the recipies may not have been of very much use to me. I still wish I could have signe up though!!!

How's everyone getting on? I realised after watching Jorge's Q&A video that I may have been counting my carb servings wrong as he says at one point that 30g = 2 carb servings... I'm confused again!
I can't wait for the book!

Anyway, pizza in the oven and side salad prepared!
Good luck everyone! We can all do it - even without his coaching programme!

Great idea! I am a pretty lazy cook though so I tend to buy ready made stuff (pizzas etc) although I have been having variations on nachos (using cheese doritos as these have less sugar than original doritos) and tortillas (using wholewheat wraps) but for lunches for work I have been taking chicken salads, Green and Blacks chocolate and also cheese for snacks. I'm not sure this is filling me up though so it'd be great to hear other people's lunch ideas to take to work.
