Jorge Cruise’s popular diet, The Belly Fat Cure, just got a little easier to follow with the launch of a new iPhone and iPad app. The Belly Fat Cure Sugar and Carb Counter is the latest incarnation of the diet, which promises to banish belly fat and help you lose 9 pounds in just one week. As the title would suggest, the diet hinges on the idea of limiting sugars and carbs, and the companion app makes keeping track of these nutrients easy.
I took the app for a little test run this afternoon, and found it to be intuitive and easy to use. The diet is clearly explained in the app, although you will benefit from also reading the book. Like almost any food-journaling app, The Belly Fat Cure Sugar and Carb Counter allows you to track all the food you eat during a day by selecting items from a database. However, this app keeps a constant reminder of how many servings of carbs and grams of sugar you eat in a day.

I can’t get enough “Love”…
Over the summer, I commented on the fake outrage over Jennifer Love Hewitt’s fake weight issues. Well, I guess the outrage isn’t fake, but the whole ordeal is certainly much ado about nothing. Hewitt hopes to put it to rest once and for all.
If you don’t know about this trivial nonsense, Hewitt was made fun of for beach pictures that revealed that, gasp, she was a human being with real life un-airbrushed blemishes. She attacked the tabloid onslaught by defending womanhood, warts and all.
So when she subsequently lost weight and it was spotlighted in US magazine, she was promptly attacked again for supposedly being a hypocrite. Point being, if it didn’t matter, then why would she lose the weight? The people of course missed the point, which was that it’s mean spirited to attack anyone who doesn’t look like a cartoon character of the female figure.

See the Jorge Cruise 12-Second Sequence Review.
Jorge Cruise is currently on a 20 city tour at various Barnes and Nobles promoting his 10th book “12-Second Sequence”. As we were waiting for the discussion to begin Jorge came bursting through the doors of the Barnes and Noble in New York City, kicking of his book tour energetically, despite the frigid temperatures in the teens outside. His promotional tour is perfectly timed with the New Year as the majority of New Year’s resolutions center around health and getting in shape.
Jorge began his discussions by talking about his passion for health and wellness and spoke about his perspective on ridding the body of fat. “This does not mean having to starve ourselves or perform cardio for hours,” Jorge states. The key being to build muscle strength by fatiguing the muscles. You will not change the muscle or body composition without this key component. This compressed program touts the ability to create muscle quickly, which then directly impacts our resting metabolism (the state of our metabolism when we are well, resting) leading to more calorie burn throughout the day.
After an overview of the program, Jorge lead a sample lunge exercise from the 12-second Sequence with members of the audience spread throughout the store. The countdown to 12 began and the audience members participating confirmed feeling the burn that Jorge has spoken about. He also at this point spoke on a more personal level about growing up overweight himself and not having good role models to look up to. In this 10th book, that took 2 years to write, are pages on eating well, meal plans and an exercise tracker. In addition, the book provides a self-administered fitness test, which then leads the reader into his 12 second sequence 8-week challenge. As well as joining the 8-week challenge, readers have the opportunity to win $10,000 by signing up at www.12second.com and uploading their before and after photos. 10 winners will be selected.
Jorge ends by asking us all “Are we ready to take on the challenge?” Are you?
