Jorge Cruise’s Sugar Free Chocolate Shake

Recently, I got a blender and have finally been able to try out Jorge Cruise’s recipe from the Belly Fat Cure book for the Sugar Free Chocolate Shake. The recipe is on Page 83 under the title “Chocolate Lover’s Shake.”

When buying the ingredients, I opted to get Vanilla flavored Whey Powder instead of the Chocolate flavor the recipe calls for. I figure if I want to experiment with other flavors then it’s easier to use Vanilla as the base flavor. I initially had some of Clemmy’s Chocolate flavored Ice Cream and opted to use it and the chocolate flavored unsweetened almond milk to add the chocolate flavor. I didn’t bother adding any of the Truvia as I wanted to see how sweet it would taste without it and I threw all the ingredients into the blender and let it do it’s thing and poured the shake into a hurricane glass and topped it with whipped cream.

The shake tasted amazing. I’ve since made a few more shakes and have tried some other variations, everything from Clemmy’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Vanilla almond milk and adding cocoa powder to give it chocolate flavor and even adding a few ice cubes to the blender to help it stay colder longer and it’s been fun experimenting with various ways to make the shake. I’ve even thrown in Psyllium Husks to add more fiber to the shake and they’ve all come out delicious and completely guilt free and sugar free.

Trying The New Dr. Zevia Flavor

One of my favorite things of 2009, was discovering Zevia’s all natural sodas when I was introduced to the Belly Fat Cure by Jorge Cruise. I’ve been a big fan of Zevia since my very first purchase. Their sodas are all natural, and naturally sugar free, and calorie free. They are sweetened by Stevia, a South American plant who’s name means “sweet leaf” and Erythritol, a sugar alcohol that naturally occurs in plants.

At the time I first started trying Zevia, they only had four flavors, Cola (similar to Coca-Cola or Pepsi), Natural Twist (a lemon-lime soda similar to 7-Up or Sprite), Root Beer (similar to A&W), and Orange (similar to Fanta). Soon after they introduced two new flavors, Ginger Ale (similar to Canada Dry) and Black Cherry (similar to a Cherry 7-Up). And now they’ve introduced a new flavor called, Dr. Zevia, which naturally is similar to Dr. Pepper.

It was quite a while following the introduction of the Ginger Ale and Black Cherry Zevia flavors before I ever found them in the stores, so this time I ordered a couple of cases of the new Dr. Zevia directly from Zevia. Fortunately they were offering a great discount at the time which dropped the price of shipping for the two cases down to just a couple of bucks over top the price of the cases. And after a couple of weeks of waiting for the order to ship and for FedEx Ground Service to deliver it, the Dr. Zevia had finally arrived.

Indulging In A Little A&W

As some of my readers may recall, a few weeks ago I had a craving for some A&W food, and to my surprise discovered all the locations in San Diego County had closed up shop. (Click here to read about it if you missed it.) Since I was in Orange County for Robert Shadbolt’s birthday at Disneyland, I decided on the way home I was going to seek out one of the A&W’s on the way home from Disneyland. But I wasn’t really hungry and by the time I found the location in Mission Viejo with a slight diversion off the highway, it was a few minutes before they closed.

I didn’t really want food, so I elected to just get a Root Beer Float, except using the Diet Root Beer instead of the regular. Officially even those are a no-no items on my Belly Fat Cure program, because the ice cream has sugar in it, and the Diet Root Beer has aspartame in it. But as a Dr. Edward Taub frequently states, “Everything in moderation….including moderation.” And so I had a small Root Beer Float with two bad ingredients. On the Belly Fat Cure, I’m not supposed to have a meal that exceeds 5 grams of sugar and 2 carb servings or a 5/2. The Diet Root Beer Float was a 17/2, which is okay on the carb end, but 2 more grams of sugar than I’m supposed to have in a whole day. Still far better than the 57/4 getting the regular root beer version would have been. So I cheated on my program a little.

Ryan’s 10 Most Incredible Things About About 2009

Now that 2009 has come to a close and 2010 has begun, I can safely say that it’s a year that has been very challenging and although I am not the least bit sad to see 2009 go, it certainly was not without some really incredible experiences for me that I would like to highlight before wipe the slate clean and start fresh with 2010.

This list was especially difficult to narrow down since 2009 was the year I kicked my blogging into high gear. I had started Ryan’s Incredible World in 2007 didn’t actually start blogging until 2008 and I would maybe make no more than five entries a month. So picking my highlights of 2008 was relatively easy since there wasn’t so many blog entries to go through to pick out the defining moments.

I had joined a couple of 30-Day blogging challenges which requires 30 blog entries in 30 days and it essentially got me into the habit of making almost daily blog entries. Now it’s pretty safe to say that each month sees about 25 new blog entries. The constant blogging has actually helped bring a bigger audience to my blog, so if your first time reading any of my writing has been in 2009, then no doubt something I wrote in 2009 caught your eye and is why you’re here reading this entry now. I am grateful for the many folks who’ve read my blog and left me comments, it’s been a pleasure to hear your feedback throughout the year. In any case, I looked through every post of 2009 to select what I feel were the 10 Most Incredible Things about 2009 that happened for me. You’ll note I combined a few complimentary things to narrow it down to 10.

I do hope you enjoy my reflection on 2009 and continue to join me on my quest to find the most incredible things of 2010. Without further ado, in no particular order.

A Great Introduction To Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure

Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat CureI often get a lot of questions about my recent weight loss, mostly from people who see me in person. Obviously they can see the changes, and I don’t exactly pose for a lot of photographs let alone post them here online to show the changes either. But in any case, since I get asked, I wanted to have a great resource to point people to in order to get additional information.

Since Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure program doesn’t officially get released until the end of the year, what is available is a free downloadable special report (JorgeCruise.com) that highlights the key aspects of the program. There report is available freely on the main page, there is no need to give an e-mail address, and you can read it and if you want additional information, you can sign up to received updates from Jorge Cruise. The report comes in a PDF file so it’s easy to download and read as well as print out if you wish. The Belly Fat Cure is a very simple program, and I’ve had remarkable success with it. In two months, I’ve lost 37 pounds and 7 inches from around my waist. It’s been amazing.

Zevia & Clemmy’s Makes Amazing Sugar Free Ice Cream Floats

Orange Zevia FloatHave made some awesome Sugar Free Chocolate Milkshakes the other day (click here to read about it), I was curious of other ways to experiment with the sugar free ice cream. And since it’s summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, a great summer treat is a float. But traditional floats can be loaded with sugar between the ice cream and then when you add on top of a soda, you’re just asking for sugar overload.

Well since I have some Clemmy’s Sugar Free Ice Cream on hand in the incredibly awesome Vanilla Bean flavor, it’s perfect for mixing into a float. And since I’m also a big fan of Zevia‘s Natural Diet Soda in all it’s flavors (Cola, Twist, Root Beer, Orange, Black Cherry, and Ginger Ale) I’ve got plenty of opportunities to try the various combinations. I was certainly leaning towards the Root Beer and Cola flavors as most people usually do A&W Root Beer Floats or Coca-Cola floats, but I ultimately decided I wanted to try an Orange Float in the hopes it would taste a bit more like an old fashioned Creamsicle. I was not disappointed.

Zevia‘s Orange soda perfectly compliments Clemmy’s Sugar Free Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The treat was completely sugar free and the ice cream does add a couple of servings of carbohydrates, but nothing out of the ordinary. This is a perfectly delicious treat to try if you’re on Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure Program. It comes out absolutely delicious. It tastes just like a Creamsicle and isn’t going to blow your diet since there’s no sugar at all in the treat.

Red Robin Bottomless Fries Are A Guilty Pleasure

Red RobinOne of the indulgences my roommate and I have liked to do since we’ve been roommates is a make a run to Red Robin for bottomless fries and milkshakes. We would do this about every couple of months or so. But when I decided to start a running program in December and my roommate getting a little more serious about his fitness level as well, we hadn’t been to Red Robin since 2008. So we decided it was time to make another trip to Red Robin.

However, the only problem now is that I’ve been working hard on Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure program for the last couple of months and now that I’ve officially lost 37 pounds in two months time, I was a bit torn if I should allow myself this indulgence. It’s not so much the Red Robin‘s wonderful streak cut french fries, as a couple of baskets isn’t going to ruin my program. It’s the milkshake that’s going to completely blow the program because it’s going to be loaded with sugar, not only from the ice cream, but also the added milk and flavoring as I usually like to get a chocolate one. Granted, the Belly Fat Cure allows me 15 grams of sugar per day and I have only used my full day’s allotment once since being on the program, I could theoretically enjoy one with all the sugar grams I’ve saved over the last two months.
