Belly Fat Cure: Jorge Cruise

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

belly fat cureThe Belly Fat Cure is written by Jorge Cruise who is also the author of The 3 Hour Diet.

In this latest book, which has reached the New York Times bestselling list, Cruise introduces readers to his ‘Carb Swap System’.

He promises dieters that they can target their belly fat and lose four to nine pounds a week.

Belly Fat Cure Diet Basics


The basic concept of the Belly Fat Cure revolves around keeping insulin levels in balance by avoiding all simple sugars, including those from fruit. Cruise states that high insulin levels cause the liver to convert excess sugars into fat that specifically gets stored in the belly.

You don’t have to count calories on the Belly Fat Cure diet but instead you pay attention to the types of foods you are eating and follow the ‘Carb Swap System’. The general eating plan is similar to the South Beach Diet and you are allowed to consume 15 grams of sugar and six servings of complex carbohydrates each day.

The meal plans are based on proteins, fats and vegetables with small amounts of sweeteners and whole grains. All processed foods and artificial sweeteners must be eliminated.

Dieters are encouraged to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Wine, beer and champagne are acceptable but cocktails, fruit juice and milk are not allowed while on the Belly Fat Cure.

The only fruits that can be consumed on the Belly Fat Cure are blackberries and blueberries because they have a very low sugar content. But when you reach your ideal weight you can then include up to two pieces of fruit in your diet each day.

Belly Fat Cure Fast Track

Jorge has just released an accelerated version of his diet called the Belly Fat Cure Fast Track.  In this version, He says that dieters could expect to lose 14 pounds in the first 14 days of the diet. This version drastically eliminates sugar and focuses on hidden sugars as well.

Pros

  • Encourages the intake of whole grains and vegetables.
  • Easy to understand and follow.
  • Will appeal to dieters specifically interested in addressing belly fat.
  • Includes a detailed food list with sugar and carbohydrate information.
  • Includes recipes and a meal plan.

Cons

  • Recipes do not contain nutritional information.
  • Meal plan is high in saturated fat.
  • Does not allow fruit except for certain berries.
  • Some of the recommended food items may be expensive or difficult to find.
  • Does not encourage exercise.
  • Weight loss expectations exceed those advised for good health.

Full of Exaggerated Claims

Many of the claims made in The Belly Fat Cure are exaggerated – such as “results are almost instant” – and this can set dieters up for unrealistic expectations. It is possible that a weight loss of four to nine pounds may occur in the first week but it is highly unlikely – in addition to being unhealthy – for such rapid results to continue.

In terms of the dietary recommendations the Belly Fat Cure is very similar to many other reduced carbohydrate diets. Most dieters will probably experience some weight loss initially, however for this to be maintained it will probably be necessary to pay attention to caloric intake and to incorporate regular exercise into the program.

  • Emily

    Followed this plan for 2 weeks, didn’t lose a pound. I’m used to more fiber, but took the probiotics, which may have been “dead” which is why they didn’t help things out. I felt fine on the diet while I did it, because I ate enough calories, and I thought the food choices were sound.

  • Autumn

    The diet is very easy, i found everything i needed with no problem at my grocery store; I used the fast track book. I lost 20 lbs. In 2 weeks. I love that you can switch out different foods for other ones if you dont like the ones on the menu, or you don’t have the food that was on the menu that day. I was never hungry on this diet.

  • Thesa

    Just a week into the diet and have lost two inches off my waist and eight pounds. I have great energy too! No more hitting the walk so to speak in the afternoon. Really enjoying this healthy eating change ad well as increased workouts.

  • Caroline

    I’ve been on the diet for 3 days now and feel even heavier than before I started!!! My stomach is still as big or even bigger than before. I’m even exercising but with no results.

  • joyce

    I checked this book out at the library. Went to the grocery store. They only and a few of the items in stock. The health food store in my area didn’t have much either. As I was looking at the menus, I would not eat these items on a regular basis. I am confused about what to eat!!!!

  • anna

    I tried it and thought it was excellent! It helped me lose 30lbs but no more…I have gained some of it back but no matter how hard I stay on it I dont lose anymore..

  • perarivu

    Its excellent and very good. I worked this plan and i loosed 20 kgs.

  • amj

    I have tried this diet and was especially fond of the well illustrated book. However, many of the products are expensive and must be found at specialty stores. I did lose 15 pounds on this diet but not as fast as promised in the book. But because I needed to lose 60 pounds must move on to another weight loss method.
