Making Hot Dogs Compliant With The Belly Fat Cure

Hot Dog For Belly Fat Cure ProgramSometimes all it takes to convert a meal that would have too much sugar and too many carbs into one that would meet the recommendations for Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure are some minor tweaks. Take for example of a lunch consisting of a hot dog. A lot of Americans will grab a hot dog at their local Costco Membership Warehouse, and why not? It’s a great deal as the hot dog includes a soda in addition to the hot dog all for the amazingly low price of $1.50

Between the bun and the dog, it would have a Belly Fat Cure Sugar/Carb Value (S/C Value) of 11/3, based on the nutritional information found at TheDailyPlate.com. The information doesn’t specify if any of the condiments Costco makes available are on the hot dog or not. The condiments available are ketchup, mustard, relish, and onions. Whether or not these condiments are included in the nutritional information, the Belly Fat Cure program recommends a meal consist of no more than 5 grams of sugar and two carb servings or an S/C value of 5/2. (To learn how to figure out an S/C value, download the free Belly Fat Cure Report from JorgeCruise.com). This means the Costco hot dog has more than double the allowed sugar grams and slightly too many carb servings.

The most likely cause of the overage in the Costco hot dog is the bun. A lot of bread products are loaded with sugar as a lot of bread is made with High Fructose Corn Syrup. And the bun is also the cause of the carbs as the wiener in the hot dog is an all beef meat product. And of the condiments, if those are included in the nutritional information, the ketchup, relish, and onions would be the cause of additional sugar. If the ketchup is made by Heinz, then the ketchup has 4 grams of sugar per serving and since a single serving of ketchup (about 1 tablespoon) isn’t going to cover much of a Costco hot dog, most people would pour on considerably more than one serving. So how do we turn this into a Belly Fat Cure acceptable meal?

My New Favorite Burger From In-N-Out’s Secret Menu

in_n_out_double_lettuce_wrapI’d like to introduce you to my new favorite hamburger from In-N-Out Burger. It is called a “Double Meat Protein Style With Ketchup, Mustard, & Pickles” and it’s from In-N-Out Burger’s “Secret Menu.”

For those not familiar with In-N-Out Burger, they are a chain of fast food restaurants that started out at roughly the same time as the McDonald Brothers opened their first hamburger stand. Both companies started out very similar, but how they proceeded into the future from there is about as different as they come. Unlike McDonald’s, In-N-Out Burger is a family run company, they do not have any shareholders, and they do not franchise any of their locations. Being a smaller company that focuses on quality, they’ve only expanded their reach California into the neighboring states of Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. And they’ve achieved such a cult like status that their burgers are often considered a Southern California delicacy.

Additionally, their menu has remained virtually unchanged since the company first opened its doors. Their burger selection is a choice of three, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, and their signature sandwich, the “Double Double” which is a double cheeseburger with two slices of cheese. They also offer French Fries, and the traditional fare of beverage choices, sodas, coffee, teas, lemonades, and milkshakes made from real ice cream. The company prides itself on the fact the company doesn’t own a single freezer ensuring nothing but fresh products. In fact, their French Fries are sliced and diced in the store from real potatoes.
