Ask Me Your Belly Fat Cure Questions

In order to make it easier for people to ask their questions about the Belly Fat Cure program, I’ve created a new page on this site for people to post their questions. It’s accessible in two ways off the main page of Ryan’s Incredible World, first, the brand new “Belly Fat Cure Ask Ryan” graphic which appears in the sidebar will take you there, and there also is a text link in the “Pages” section of the sidebar.

I figured this option might be a better way to ask me your Belly Fat Cure questions and get the answers all in one place as opposed to reading through all the various Belly Fat Cure blog entries I have throughout the site. If you’ve got questions about the program, I want to help you get answers to your questions.

The important thing to keep in mind is that I am not Jorge Cruise, so your questions will not go to Jorge Cruise, nor will my answers be officially sanctioned by Jorge Cruise. I just am someone who’s been successful with the program and would like to help others with their questions for the program. I have more details about my success on the Belly Fat Cure program and further disclaimers on the “Ask Ryan” page.

To ask me your Belly Fat Cure questions, please click here and leave your questions in the comment box found on that page. I will be happy to help you with your questions.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    I’m so glad that you put up this page… I’m the gal who asked about making your own malitol or xylitol syrup… but I can’t remember where I posted it!!! AAAARG!

    Onto another topic… through weeks 1 and 2 I have been experiencing headaches and lethargy, even though I am keeping up with liquid intake. I’d like to have that “new found energy” that lots of people talk about…. any ideas?



  2. Hi Annette,

    Thank you for the comment, I do hope this page ends up being a good resource for people to ask questions and have them answered. It’s okay, I don’t remember where your question about making your own maltitol or xylitol syrup got posted either. In any case, I haven’t a clue how you’d make your own as I’ve never looked into that. I just find it easier to buy the Maltitol Syrup. I find ordering it directly from Joseph’s is the best route because they sell it for $2.99 a bottle (I’ve seen it in stores for $4.99 or more). They do ask your order to be a minimum of $20, but they ship your entire order for free, so I buy a few bottles and a couple of bags of their sugar free cookies when I do make an order. Their website can be accessed by clicking here.

    As for the headaches and lethargy, I’m not sure what you might be doing that’s causing it. You may try experimenting by taking out some of the things you are doing such as individual food items or such and seeing if there is a difference, then add them back in and see if the headaches and lethargy come back. As for these boosts of energy, I’ll admit, I’ve not noticed a significant increase in my energy on the program and I’d like some of that energy boosting too. Although I’ve not seen much of an energy increase, I did get a really nice compliment this morning at work. I went to check if my new ID badge was ready and they said it was, I just need to pose for a new photo as the old photo are being replaced with the new batch of renewals. I was more than happy to pose for a new photo because I’d lost weight since the last photo which was taken in October 2003. The girl taking the photo held up my old badge to my new badge after the new one with the new photo was printed and said I look younger in the new one too.


  3. I have been on the BFC for three weeks and just found out that every day I have been eating a food product that contained aspartame in it!! I was so mad and I hadn’t really seen any success so I was wondering if the aspartame may have prohibited me from losing? And another food product has dextrose and maltodextrin in the ingredients…is that ok to eat?

  4. Hi Kayla,

    I’m sorry to hear that you got fooled by some hidden aspartame. It’s amazing how many food products manufacturers put it in. Don’t beat yourself up over buying something with aspartame. You just make sure that you don’t buy any more of it. Whether you choose to finish off the rest of that product is entirely up to you. I don’t know how much of the aspartame you’ve had, so I can’t say for sure if it can be the cause of the lack of results you’ve seen so far.

    If you haven’t seen it yet, Jorge has added a document to his website that addresses corrections to the Belly Fat Cure book as well as adds an additional segment for the book to address those not hitting any results right away. The document is available as a PDF at

    As for Dextrose and Maltodextrin, according to the information I could find (click here to see the best information I could find), both are high on the glycemic index, in fact, considerably higher than sugar. It’s probably better to avoid those foods. The information I found indicates that both Dextrose and Maltodextrin get quickly absorbed by the body, which body builders find beneficial for replenishing their energy immediately after strenuous workouts rapidly. If you’re not a body builder, then this is not going to be a desirable effect as the insulin spike will prevent your body from releasing the stored fat and keep the body in storage mode. If you’re already eating these foods with Dextrose and Maltodextrin, that’s probably why you’re not seeing the results you want to see with the Belly Fat Cure program.


  5. Ryan,

    Thank you so much! That helps me a lot and I’m so glad that I found your website! If I have more questions I’ll be sure to ask you! Thanks again.


  6. Hi Ryan –

    Today I am starting my third week of the BFC and have not had any weight loss and I am not noticing any changes around the belly section. I have journaled all of my foods and have stayed within the range the whole two weeks. My goal is to lose 25 pounds. Beginning last Wednesday, I have started to add more fiber into my diet (20 to 25 grams) a day. I’m not quite ready to give this up yet because I have read so many positive responses about the plan. Do you have any other ideas or suggestions for me?

  7. Hi TJ,

    If you’re not having success with following the BFC but are taking additional fiber, then you may need to add a probiotic to your program. Probiotics are good bacterial that help break down the food that you eat in your intestinal tract. You can find probiotics at your local health food store, and you want something that will help you restore the levels of bacteria your intestines are supposed to have but due to a combination of today’s nutrient lacking foods and some artificial sweeteners that kill the bacteria, we have to be a bit more vigilant in getting our levels back to normal.

    If you add on a probiotic and still aren’t achieving success then it’s time to look at the quality of your carbohydrates that you are having, and you may want to cut a few of them and add fiber rich vegetables in their place.
