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.

I'm thinking of modifying the menu a bit to shift my carbs from evening to breakfast. I want to start my day off with the flax muffins again and see if that improves my results.

There are one or two good recipes (out of three) each week, but the daily menu itself is so heavily reliant on cheese and eggs I am not sure when it is I'm expected to have that "false fat purge" that we come to expect from the BFC.

I am slimming for sure, but I still have that bulge beneath my navel - and that's usually the first thing to go when I follow Jorge's plan!

I will continue to follow the 10/3 modified values of the One Menu plan, but I've gotta get away from the cheese. It's too much!

So when I go over the week 3 menu on Sunday morning I'm going to plan a rather different week, emphasis on Fiber, and try to work the cheese quantity down to half.


  1. YOu don't have to follow it exactly, if you don't want the cheese - take it out. Just make sure you don't feel deprived or hungry from what ever you are eating. Cause then you might want to cheat.
    Go back and look at my results - we are not all the same when trying to lose. Have a good one.

  2. I don't have the new menus and was wondering what the 10/3 modified values are? I think you are doing great so far.

  3. The way the menu is set up it's a 0/0 breakfast, a 3/1 lunch and 3/1 dinner followed by a 4/1 dessert, with two 0/0 snacks. It's not always exactly the same but that's basically it, plus the benefit of the simple meal plan and special recipes. He sends out a new recipe each week. The intent is that you eat the same thing every day for the week and then get a new menu, but he does have variation options plus fast food options if you can't cook.

  4. Oh I know. I'm being stubborn about eating his way because I paid good money for the plan.
