My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

Responding to comments

Not much to report in my BFC trek today.. getting tired of posting what I ate, LOL. It was only supposed to be until I remembered to print more tracking pages anyway.

So I'll respond to comments. For some reason Blogspot's format doesn't let me reply directly to comments in a way that'll notify you that I've responded, so I better "shout out" here instead.

A bunch of you asked me to share the recipe for the cake I showed off (and finished off!) last night. It's the Healthy Indulgences Healthy Chocolate Cake with a Secret. We renamed it "Black Magic" cause it's some kind of voodoo that makes it taste that good! Here's a link to the recipe:

I used whip cream to decorate it (and hold the berries in place) but I did make a batch of the chocolate buttercream frosting (also at the link above). It was DELICIOUS but I think I must have missed something because it did not seem to be the same amount that she showed in her photo of the cake. It was a thiiiiiin layer and we skipped the egg yolk so it wasn't shiny. I wonder if the yolk would have bulked it up enough to make a difference? Anyway, it was amazing, but I may double the recipe if I make it again.

We added berries to it because my dad's a fruit addict, but not enough to ruin the belly good aspect of the cake. It was 1/1 before the berries, and I calculated a slice to be about 3/1 after.

I have coconut flour and will do some more baking this week. We bought two bananas to let them ripen to try this recipe:

So I'm just waiting on the bananas. They were the ripest ones at the store and now they're in a bag on the counter. Hopefully they're ready tonight because my next chance to bake wouldn't be til Friday!


  1. Your cake looked yummy! I love having other's try recipes and bake. I still haven't bought my first bag of coconut flour yet. I didn't really bake or cook before, so this is all new:)
    Have a great day:)

  2. ooh - banana muffins - Sounds lovely! I wish there was a better way to respond to comments as well.

  3. I feel the same way about how Jorge counts things too. I always go by the packaging, because I find that brands can change the values enough that I want to be more precise. It's frustrating!

  4. The cake looked scrumptious! I made the banana nut muffins a few weeks ago and they were fantastic! Even my carb lovin' hubby loved them! Enjoy and thanks for sharing.
