Fat Head Says Super Size Me Is Full Of Bologna

Perhaps you’ve seen Morgan Spurlock’s documentary, “Super Size Me” where he takes McDonald’s to task with an experiment over 30 days to see how unhealthy McDonald’s food is. Well, filmmaker Tom Naughton, decides to do the same experiment but prove it’s possible to lose weight eating only fast food for 30 days and in the process takes not only Morgan Spurlock to task, but also the US Government, consumer action groups, and basically every diet and exercise guru who advocate low fat, high carb diets.

Naughton points out that in Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me”, Spurlock consumed over 5,000 calories a day, which by anyone’s standards, would be likely to make anyone fat. But Spurlock had three rules he was going to follow, he ate only three meals a day, would try everything on the menu at least once, and would super size the meal if asked by the clerk. Naughton pokes a hole in this because there’s no way he could put together three meals a day and hit that calorie level without adding extra food. Spurlock gained over 25 pounds during his experiment, and it’s Naughton’s claim that Spurlock intentionally “Mc-Stuffed” himself because had he only gained four or five pounds, it wouldn’t have been as dramatic a film. And repeated efforts to contact Morgan Spurlock to review his food log were refused.

Jorge Cruise Presents New Belly Fat Cure Fast Track Program

On May 1st, Jorge Cruise introduced a bunch of his clients former and present know about a brand new version of the Belly Fat Cure, which he is calling the “Fast Track” version of the program. While I can’t get into the specifics of the details of the program until he launches a more public announcement for the program, what I can say is that the program was developed to be as a super turbo charged version of the program that in the San Diego test case group he’s been trying it out with for the first last two weeks, the results have been astonishingly good.

Some of the benefits of the new Fast Track program is that it eliminates the need to use any specialty products, which a lot of people seemed to feel Jorge’s New York Times Bestselling book, “The Belly Fat Cure” mentions as options to use but doesn’t state they are required to be used. Also the having to track sugar and carbohydrates also gets eliminated in the program making it very easy to follow. Additionally, the menu plan is very simple as all the meals are designed to be put together very quickly and easily with little to no effort. No complicated recipes, no specialty products, and no tracking. Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not.

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.

Free Belly Fat Cure Video Class

We’re just a couple of days away from the launch of the Belly Fat Cure book and if you’re new to hearing about the Belly Fat Cure, you may be curious what it is. For me personally, the Belly Fat Cure has resulted in my being able to shed 74 pounds and 10 inches off the circumference of my belly. I still have more I want to lose, but I’ve already lost about 25% of my starting weight and I’m looking to lose about half of the weight I had when I started the program.

My opinion is that you should just get the book, it’s on sale at Amazon.com for about $10 and it’s loaded with information about how and why you store fat, how to get rid of it, and then tons of recipes and food items to show better alternatives to what you’re probably already doing. But I can understand a little bit of hesitancy and skepticism especially if you’re not sure what it is. Jorge Cruise understands this and has prepared a short series of 5 YouTube Videos to help introduce the program. Just invest a few minutes of your day to check out the 5 videos, which I’ve included below for your convenience. And then if you’re interested in the program, click here to get the book from Amazon.com.

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.

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.

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?

Losing A Little Weight & Finally It Shows

Ryan in Xanadu Hat - May 2, 2009It’s definitely a great feeling to take a few new photos to replace some of my older profile photos and actually see a little bit of a difference in terms of weight loss.

In the last two weeks I’ve been following a new program designed by Jorge Cruise, and I’ve already lost about 6 inches off my stomach. I’ve also managed to go down a size in both my uniform top and my pants for work. It’s taking a little getting used to the smaller pants and shirt because they don’t feel as roomy as my old ones were getting to be, but I’m liking it. Can’t wait until I’m trading these ones in for smaller ones as well.

The best part is I haven’t really had to buy any new clothes yet, because I’ve actually already got a bunch of relatively new clothing I’ve bought but because I didn’t like how they fit at time, they’ve sat in my closet waiting for the day I lose some weight and I can wear them. Well that day is finally here and it’s been fun feeling like I’ve got a whole new wardrobe that’s already sitting inside my closet.
