First Look – The Belly Fat Cure Book By Jorge Cruise Out In December

Belly Fat Cure Book CoverJorge Cruise has officially released an image of what the cover of The Belly Fat Cure book is going to look like. The book will be released right after Christmas with a scheduled release date on December 28, 2009, perfect for those getting ready to shed those post holiday pounds and New Year resolutions.

The book will feature a forward written by Dr. David Katz, who is a featured columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine. In addition to being a wonderful resource to explain the whole Belly Fat Cure process, the book also explains the scientific reasoning behind the Belly Fat Cure, and how to apply it to your life and start making smart “carb swaps” that will make it easy to transform the food choices that have made us fat in the past into food choices that will keep us trim. Yes, believe it or not, it is possible to have brownies, chocolate, pizza, and ice cream that will actually help you lose weight instead of packing on the pounds.

A good portion of the book helps by taking common meals from many restaurants and shows you how to turn that “Belly Bad” meal as Jorge calls it and transform it into a “Belly Good” meal without sacrificing flavor at all. Do you ever get food at Denny’s IHOP, Mimi’s Cafe, McDonalds, Burger King, Jamba Juice, Starbucks, Einstein Bros. Bagels, FatBurger, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Arby’s, Schlotzky’s Deli, Chicago UNO, Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, Wolfgang Puck, Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s, Quizno’s, Subway, Panera Bread, Rubio’s, Red Robin, Chevy’s, Taco Bell, Ruby’s Diner, Chipotle, La Salsa, Hometown Buffet, Panda Express, Boston Market, Pat & Oscar’s, or In-N-Out Burger restaurants? If you do, then learn how bad some of the items you can get there really are for you, and don’t worry, the same page spread shows you how to make the same thing at home in a better way that’s not loaded with sugar or excessive carbohydrates.

KFC Rain Check Arrives To Replace The Oprah Coupon

KFC Rain CheckAs you may recall, I wrote about on May 5th, that Oprah Winfrey was partnering up with Kentucky Fried Chicken, or KFC to offer coupons for a free Grilled Chicken meal to celebrate the nationwide launch of KFC’s new Grilled Chicken. (Click here to read that blog entry.) The coupons caused a frenzy and basically became a nightmare for KFC and Oprah Winfrey. KFC shut down the redeeming of the coupons and began collecting them along with mailing information for each customer presenting them so that they could mail them a “Rain check” voucher which would now include a Pepsi where the original offer didn’t include a beverage. And on May 8th I reported about the very rude KFC employee I encountered when I presented my coupon. (Click here to read the blog entry for that.)

Considering how rude the employee at the Poway KFC that I went to with my original coupon was, I was beginning to have my doubts that I was going to receive my rain check as I was supposed to. I just didn’t trust that the store was going to send in the coupons to the main office they said they would and just when I was beginning to feel that my wait had been a bit excessive and I was starting to think about writing a complaint letter to the company, my rain check voucher showed up in the mail.

Oprah Winfrey Presents A Free KFC Grilled Chicken Meal

KFC Grilled ChickenToday Oprah Winfrey partnered up with Kentucky Fried Chicken to offer the nation a 2-piece Grilled Chicken Meal with 2 side items for free. The catch is you have to download the coupon today between 9:00 am and 9:59 pm Central time. The coupon remains valid everyday until the 19th with the exception of May 10th due to Mother’s Day. (Do you really want to treat your mother to KFC for Mother’s Day?)

The information about the promotion is available at Oprah’s site by clicking here. The promotion originally required visitors to download the coupon by first going to UnthinKFC.com and it would provide a link to Coupons.com where it would allow you to print a single coupon that’s individualized with a barcode so each coupon could only be used once. Well the site powering it requires the installation of a proprietary coupon printing software so you can’t save the coupon, but only print it immediately.

The 9 Most Incredible Things Of 2008 In Ryan’s Incredible World

Now that 2009 is now upon us, it seems that it would be good to take a few minutes to highlight what made high points for me in 2008. Taking a quick glance at the list of items that made the list this year, it seems that the very early 1980’s seem to be related to almost all of the items that make the list for this year. The influence of the 1980’s will be readily apparent as you check out the list. And I’ll point those out along the way for those who might not quite see the influence.

Without further ado, I now present My 9 Most Incredible Things of 2008, in no particular order… Continue reading The 9 Most Incredible Things Of 2008 In Ryan’s Incredible World

If you’ve ever seen the colossal selling video “The Secret” or read the book version, or even seen the “The Secret” discussed on Oprah Winfrey’s show, then you’re already familiar with the concept of creating a vision board, as taught by John Assaraf. Essentially, the concept to making a vision board, is put up photos of what things or concepts you want in life on a board and then visualize having those things or feelings as if they were already part of your life.

So this can be quite a laborious process, but if you really want those things in your life, then it’s worth the time and effort. Well when I was first introduced to “The Secret” at Raymond Aaron’s “Monthly Mentor University” a couple of years ago, I thought about putting together a vision board, but really couldn’t get past the feeling that clipping pictures out of magazines and using glue sticks to attach those pictures to colored construction paper and writing little sayings, felt a little too junior highish for me. So needless to say, I never did one, even though John Assaraf’s story of living in the same exact dream home he put on his vision board was quite compelling in itself.
