Sometimes 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?
