The Belly Fat Cure

Use the Carb Swap System to smash belly fat!

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Belly Fat Cure is a new book written by Jorge Cruise that promises to help you lose four to nine pounds every week with his Carb Swap System.

The Carb Swap System involves eliminating excess sugar and processed carbohydrates. With this plan, you eat a recommended 15 grams of sugar and 6 servings of carbs each day. Being able to lose four to nine pounds each week is definitely an inspirational goal for many that are trying to lose weight. Although you can lose this amount of weight, Cruise states that only two to three pounds will be from 100% belly fat. The rest of the weight comes from false belly fat, which is trapped waste matter.

The Belly Fat Cure talks in depth about the true reason that you are overweight. According to Cruise it’s because of the hidden sweeteners in food that deliver belly-fattening sugar and carb values to your diet.

The Belly Fat Cure also offers an eating guide that gives you smart and affordable food choices. There are more than 1,500 food options that are broken into categories specifically for carboholics, meat lovers, chicken and seafood fans, chocoholics, fast-food junkies and vegans. With the Belly Fat Cure, you don’t have any specific timing or scheduling around when you eat.

PRO
  • Includes several recipes
  • Foods for those that love meat, carbs, chocolate or seafood
  • Also includes foods for vegans
  • Will result in weight loss if followed correctly
  • Easy plan to follow
  • Encourages a nutritious way of eating
  • Author has written several other books on weight loss
  • There's a companion iPhone and iPad app called The Belly Fat Cure Sugar & Carb Counter
CON
  • Exercise not encouraged for losing weight
  • Focus on insulin instead of calories may be hard for some to grasp
  • Healthy rate of weight loss should be one to two pounds per week
DIET and NUTRITION

Through the Belly Fat Cure program, the focus is the patented Carb Swap System for losing weight. The Carb Swap System focuses on 15 grams of sugar per day and 6 servings of carbs. The Carb Swap System also helps eliminate those hidden sugars from your diet that are contributing to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. There are thorough lists of foods that you can eat while on the program, along with several recipes.

Here are some of the recipes that are included:

  • Breakfast: Zesty Quiche Lorraine
  • Lunch: Simple Swiss & Mushroom Burger
  • Dinner: Crispy Fish & Chips
  • Snack: Sweet Strawberry Smoothie
EXERCISE

Jorge Cruise does not encourage exercise for the purpose of losing weight, but for reducing stress, toning and staying strong. Exercise is not required to lose weight following the Belly Fat Cure program.

A couple of workouts that are recommended by Jorge Cruise include his program called 8 Minutes in the Morning and his advanced program called The 12-Second Sequence. Both of these exercise routines are available through books with the same titles.

Some of the exercises recommended in The Belly Fat Cure book are designed specifically to whittle down your midsection. Some of the recommendations given include:

  • Walking: get in a 20-minute power walk as often as possible
  • 8 Minute Ab Sculptor program: Toe reach, reverse crunch and other exercises
CONCLUSION

The Belly Fat Cure by well-known fitness guru, Jorge Cruise, is a book that will give you the results you’re looking for and help you lose weight at a consistent rate. The program does seem to be mainly for those looking to reduce belly fat rather than their overall weight. If belly fat has been a problem for you, this program might serve as a great guide to help with that.

There are several delicious recipes included no matter what type of eater you are. The book does include both an eating and exercise plan, although the exercise portion is completely optional. Getting rid of belly fat can be a great step towards improving your overall health.

Belly Fat Cure Fast track is working well. Interesting, I love wine at night; since following his diet I have had no sugar cravings... no wine. Weight is coming off nicely.

How to count the carbs/sugars correctly. I am using the Belly Fat Cure diet. When a product states it contains a Total of 15 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fiber and 3 grams of sugar, how does this figure in the 15/6 daily count? Do you count 12 carbs and 3 sugars? I'm confused....

I started this diet March of 2010, at 270 lbs and a 45.5 inch waist. With no exersice, by August of 2010, I weighed 213, and I had a 36 inch waist. I have keep the weight off for going on two years now. I currently work out an hour a day 4 times a week and weigh 206 with a 34 inch waist. This diet works, it just takes disipline.

It a great jump start and more motivating to see results! Though I'm sugar addict, this has actually made me think it was an insulin issue. I needed the sugar to bring my insulin back up. By no means I am trained, skilled, etc. on this topic, I just know it is working for me where other avenues have failed, they still allowed sugar consumption and didn't even address it. Thanks Jorge for sharing your knowledge!!

I love this plan! I have lost 4 lbs in one week, and I feel fantastic! I am not hungry and my jeans are starting to feel loose again. The first day was the hardest for me; I had a headache throughtout the day, maybe a sugar withdrawal symptom?. Well, I feel great now and I plan to stick with this new diet combined with regular exercise.

Any "diet" plan that attempts serious weight loss without equallyu serious exercise is doomed to failure. You must look at exercise as a blessing and not a curse.
Sure cutting back on sugar and bad carbs is great but not if you lose muscle in the process. Take my advice and exercise at least one hour daily combine this with an eating life style change and you have a great chance of success and also of feeling and looking better. Walk, run, bike, swim, taichi, yoga, weight lifting the exercise choices are endless!

I just started the diet with just going through the website and the youtube videos 2 weeks ago, I have lost 10lbs. This diet definitely works, I just ordered the book to get more details on the things I can eat. I was struggling with losing weight and couldn't understand why I was gaining weight by eating healthy, like my banana in my protein shake and low fat yogurt, well there you have it, I was consuming too much sugar. All I can say is that I love this diet and lifestyle change. I now understand why I was gaining weight, all the sugar and bad carbs. Try it it WORKS!!!

What about zucchini or jicama. Why are they not on the plan?

I have been on this diet for a week, and have not lost anything but a week. But then again, I did Atkins and didn't lose either. I have a thyroid problem but it is supposedly treated with synthetic thyroid hormones (although it is still hard for me to lose). I tried this diet to lower triglycerides, but I also want to lose weight. This isn't helping and its hard. I wrote everything down, stayed 15/6. Didn't work for me.

For those who feel discouraged, Don't give up. I started on January 1, 2011. I did not lose weight my first week either. I spent $1,000 and was extremly discouraged. My support group kept me focused on the long term goal to healthy eating and I looked toward Jesus for the strength. There were weeks, i lost NOTHING, and then weeks I saw 2 pounds. I have never lost what he promises in his book. The great thing is that I have lost 20 lbs in 2 months. That is fantastic. I feel better, I am moving better, and this is an extremly healthy way to eat. So keep it up, even if you lose slower than the promise, you are sure to lose.

I am simply AMAZED!!! I have been struggling with my weight for years, trying different kinds of diets and failing. But, by chance I was in the bookstore looking for Asian Slim Secrets, when I ran across this book..it just grabbed my attention. I am happy to say that I have lost 7 pounds in 6 days!! That has never happened to me EVER! My husband takes great care of his body and he's is so proud that I have found something that I can stick too. I don't feel hungry and I have plenty of energy to boot. I started in at 244 and I'm 237...the scale does'nt lie. Thank the Lord for Jorge and the simplification of his program. I'm confident I will hit my goal weight for the first time EVER!!

This is not only a diet its a way of eating well. Sugar cravings are gone - my husband who HAD high blood sugar and high cholesterol recieved great feedback from his last doctor visit. The doctor said, "what ever your doing.. keep it up". Love "relearning.. what a portion is, and a great way of actually getting good foods".
