Browsing My Early Copy of Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure Book

Belly Fat Cure - Title PageYesterday, I braved the heavy rains that hit San Diego to visit Kim Barry, the wonderful lady who has been my contact at Jorge Cruise‘s office since my very first day on the Belly Fat Cure program. She’s the one I’ve been in touch with on weekly basis during my time on the Costco 100 case study group and ever since that group ended I still keep in touch with Kim. Every time I try out a new recipe I always keep Kim in the loop and I always keep a sample of it for Kim to bring to her any chance I get.

Well I haven’t seen Kim in a while so I had a variety of samples to bring to her. Kim was out of town the last time I stopped by Jorge’s office on September 2nd to deliver some samples of my “Almost Sugar Free Black Forest Cake” and Nanaimo Bars. I wanted to make sure Kim had a chance to enjoy them too, so saved a slice of the cake for Kim and it’s been in the freezer since September. I would have given it to her sooner, except we couldn’t quite find a day where she would be in the office that would line up with when I had a chance to head into San Diego to stop by.

Sugar Free Yellow Layer Cake With Sugar Free Mountain Berry Filling

Layered Yellow Cake WholeThis week is a holiday week with no class for Jorge Cruise’s 12 Week Belly Fat Cure coaching program due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Some of the folks in the 12 week coaching program have elected to use the “free” week as an opportunity to present a recipe exchange on our respective blogs and I was invited to participate in the exchange.

Rather than give my Sugar Free Nanaimo Bars recipe yet another time, I thought maybe I’ll take a crack at something new. Even though my Sugar Free Nanaimo Bars are arguably the most amazing dessert creation I’ve ever made, I’ve posted it several times here on my blog. And since I find desserts to be next to impossible to get Belly Fat Cure compliant versions in a store bought form, I will offer a dessert recipe. Sugar Free entrées and side dishes aren’t so difficult to find and since I don’t consider myself a cook, I usually just get store bought versions of those.

Emotional Eating Can Hinder Weight Loss

Jorge CruiseLast night in Jorge Cruise‘s weekly video for the 12 week coaching plan for the Belly Fat Cure, Jorge spent a bit of time addressing the issue of emotional eating. This topic came up through a question from a program member.

Jorge stressed that when eating is a result of trying to fill an emotional needed, the nutrition of the food isn’t going to matter because the emotional need isn’t being met. So even if the food is the correct nutrition, eating while feeling highly emotional isn’t going to produce a satiated feeling that helps the brain know when to tell the body to stop eating. You become at risk of over eating when trying to eat while feeling angry, sad, depressed, anxious, stressed out, and more.

It’s best to try and calm down or try to neutralize the highly emotional state before sitting down to a meal. Maybe find some funny video clips on YouTube or download a comedy podcast from iTunes, just do something to change your state of mind so that when you do eat, you’re coming from a place where you will feel full from the meal.

What A Difference A Year Makes

Ryan Cameron Oct 2008 and Sept 2009 SmallerWhen I was asked to join Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure 12 week program, Kim, my main contact within Jorge Cruise’s group, asked me for an update on my progress and I put together this photo which merges a picture of me from a year ago, when I met Arrival, one of the world’s best ABBA tribute bands in Los Angeles, with this photo of me from my trip to New York last month, I felt the photos had similar enough poses to show the dramatic difference in how I looked then compared to how I look now.

I am really pleased to see the difference myself as sometimes I don’t always see it. I see myself daily in the mirror and so I don’t always notice the difference myself. The Belly Fat Cure has definitely been the best experience I’ve had this year. As I plan to continue the plan for life, I am sure I will continue to lose weight. I have a number of people ask what my final goal weight is and my answer is, I keep going until the weight stops coming off, then I’ll just maintain it.

Invitation To Join Jorge Cruise’s 12 Week Belly Fat Cure Program

Belly Fat Cure Book CoverToday I received a phone call from Kim from Jorge Cruise’s office. I was being offered an invitation to take part in the 12 week Belly Fat Cure online coaching program that started last week. Thanks to the suggestion by Lynne who wrote has written some comments here on my blog she wrote into Jorge’s staff suggesting I should be part of the program. (Click here to see the blog entry Lynne commented on) According to Kim, Jorge agreed and was calling to give me the details.

I feel honored to be invited to participate. I strongly believe that the Belly Fat Cure program is one of the easiest to apply programs that really works. I feel the folks who have joined the 12 week program are in for a life changing experience. The original 10 week program for Costco members that I was part of ended quite a while ago and it was the trial model for the program Jorge is offering. I learned a lot and have changed my eating patterns for life as a direct result of that program. I am over 65 pounds lighter and 10 inches smaller around my waist because of that information. And I am still using the program to continue on my path.

I really appreciate being invited to participate in the 12 week program especially due to the fact that a number of the participants who have joined the 12 week program have taken the time to write in comments and questions here on my blog. I am definitely happy to help out answering any and all questions about the program that I get here to the best of my ability as a successful student of the program. Having access to the 12 week program makes it easier for me to be able to answer specific program related questions from program participants. (Just a reminder to the folks on the program, I do not work for Jorge Cruise and my responses are not officially sanctioned by Jorge Cruise or his group, but I will answer the questions to the best of my ability.) I am more than happy to share my experiences on the program so that you too can have success with the program. Please do continue to use my blog as a resource and anything I can help you with, submit a comment in response to any blog entry and I will respond as soon as I have opportunity to do so.
