Belly Fat Cure-anyone want to join me in a new thread?

I'm part way through the Belly Fat Cure book and it's making so much sense to me! I think this is the lc plan I'm going to work with There's an old Belly Fat Cure thread, but it's not active anymore.

Is anyone else following this diet? If so, maybe we can have a daily chat thread here where we check in with what we're eating, ups/downs, weights etc.

Ok, just finished the book and loved it! It made so much sense to me, all the info about sugar etc. I really like how simple the 15/6 plan is and I'm going to start tracking tomorrow

I'm going to keep posting here and hopefully others will join in

Today is my first day following Jorge's 15/6 plan. I made a simple tracker in a notebook and I'll cross off my sugar/carb grams as I eat them.

A quick overview of the plan for those interested-

-15 stands for 15 grams of sugar a day. This is your target sugar consumption per day, though you can eat less.

-6 stands for 6 servings of carbs. How serving sizes are measured:
0-4 grams=0
5-20 grams=1 serving
21=40 grams=2 servings
41-60 grams=3 servings
So your total carb load for the day would be anywhere between 30-120 grams. I love how he gives you this flexibility!

*Also, try to eat around 25 grams of fiber a day.
*He's very against artificial sweeteners, except stevia and xylitol.

His book emphasizes making good food choices-lots of eggs, meat, veggies and good fats. Unlike other lc diets though, he allows for grains as long as they fit into your daily carb load. It's a more relaxed plan but from the other thread here, and testimonials in his book, it sounds like it works! And if you have an occasional treat it's ok, again as long as it fits into the 15/6 plan.

It sounds so easy! I can't wait to start and see what happens with my weight loss

I will I didn't realize how much hidden sugar I was eating-having to stay under 15 grams a day is very eye opening!

Woke up a pound lighter this morning I love how I'm not feeling like I'm on a diet with this plan! Today I'm going out to brunch and I'm having a six egg omelet with veggies, bacon and cheese. That will be 0/0 so I'm going to splurge and have whole wheat toast with butter (no jam) as well. That will be 2/2 for the meal plus 4 grams of fiber. And the omletts at this diner are huge so that will be both breakfast and lunch

Congrats!!!!

Wheat is worse than sugar for insulin response but otherwise sounds like an awesome breakfast!

The grain/wheat part is where I'm veering off the plan a bit-I'm going to try and minimize it as much as possible, while Cruise doesn't have a problem with it. I'm having some tummy issues right now though, so I got the wheat toast in hopes that the extra fiber would help move things along The diner we went to actually offers real butter too-so good! I ended up getting a chicken omelet instead: 6 eggs with grilled chicken breast, mushrooms, onion, green peppers and cheddar. And then I ate my sons bacon

Wheat is a terrible choice for fiber actually.

Google 'LLVLC-ep-602-morley-robbins'.

You need magnesium. I eat almost no fiber every day and I'm regular as a clock. Of course, my woe is high sat/mono fats and fat is superior to fiber for regularity but magnesium is the key in either case.

Try not to greatly increase your mag dosing suddenly. It will upset your tummy and keep you mindfully aware of where the bathroom is for several hours.

Thanks for bumping

I just made fat bombs for the first time-they're in the freezer hardening right now and I can't wait to try them! I just figured out the nutritional value and each one works out to be 1s/5c (this is with rounding up), so a very 15/6 plan friendly treat. And they're good for you too

I'm cutting back on my diet soda addiction and my only means of caffeine. My 4 year old told my mother in law yesterday that I was cranky

My weight loss total for my first week on the plan is 4.5lbs and I'm feeling great! No issues with feeling hungry or deprived and my next thing is to start trying lc/ls recipes. I've started printing some off and I'm going to try and make at least one or two new recipes a week. This week I'm going to try a chicken breast covered in pizza sauce and mozzarella It's supposed to only have around 5 carbs, but I need to look into the sugar content of pizza sauce. Sounds yummy though!

The book is by Jorge Cruise and is titled The Belly Fat Cure I'm loosely following the plan-keeping my sugar grams at 15 or less a day and keeping my carbs between 30-40 (he recommends 30-120 a day), and I'm down 8.5lbs since October 14 There's no phases like Atkins, just a low sugar/low carb plan that's really easy to follow!

Working on reducing sugar and wheat intake

Cool thread. I've been struggling with reducing my sugar intake and trying to wean myself off wheat products, but I must say, I am addicted!

Hopefully this thread will help keep me focused ...

I ended up going with a different woe, JUDDD I found that for me, doing a low carb diet wasn't the best fit.

WOE: Atkins/ lots of veggies
Start Date: 1/2/13
I've always been curious about this plan, follow Jorge on Facebook, have the book. Tried the plan and it seems to go ok but never stuck to this one. I think I was getting carried away with the belly good snacks and having too much, like kettle chips and fries and popcorn. All sc but a serving is always smaller than my liking. I was turned off to this plan becaus it instantly seems to promote the fast track which to me is basically atkins and that confused me a lot. Still I think there is a ton of validity in the low/no sugar plan. Would love to see how others are doing on it!

I agree that the Fast Track seems very much like Atkins. I have never bothered with it as I am not that disciplined! The normal Belly Fat Cure diet works well enough for me - I sometimes go slightly over sugar but it doesn't seem to matter too much. If I really splurge and go way over the sugar count then I instantly get a sore throat or a cold.
Great plan for if you end up eating on the run or socially.

That's really interesting about the magnesium for that purpose. I started taking it a few months ago for hormonal headaches. It works but it did take a few months to kick in. Didn't realise it had another useful purpose too!
