Ok, so I passed up my opportunity to join the Fast Track Seminar with Jorge, and maybe regretting it just a pinch. I know Helen has started it, and I've seen a few pictures of eggs, and spinach on Jorge Cruise's Face book page. The seminar started two days ago, and the cost was 198.00 for four weeks of coaching, video's, menu planning, shopping list, and help at all times. I heard a lot of people saying the price was too high. I think he's right when he says you have to consider the big picture of Health Care cost. If you are caring a load of weight around your middle and do nothing about it ever, then you can expect to have major health issues such as diabetes, cancer, or heart disease. For some people following the Fast Track program will be a very effect way to slim down, and learn about new options on how to stay slim. It will cause those participating in a program like the Fast Track, to gain control over bad eating habits. I may sign up for the next four week Fast Track Seminar if Jorge offers another one, because it will broaden my horizons in education about weight control, and maintaining it once I get to my desired weight.
At this time I'm not in a good financial place to sign up to do Fast Track. Our Ford Ranger truck (98) just broke down a few days ago, and now has major engine problems. A mechanic came by the house today to repair it, and during his test drive the engine seized up on it, and a tow truck brought it back to our house. We are now in search of another vehicle.
I thought the Fast Track book would be coming out on the shelves soon, but from the sounds of it, Jorge has not yet finished it. I'm not sure when it will be on sale, but for the time being I will keep going with my Belly Fat Cure lifestyle. I might not be dropping weight as fast as I would by doing his Fast Track plan, but the BFC remains easy, and I'm seeing results. Knowing about the Fast Track has made me more conscious of the fact that I need to cut out some carbs, but not all like my new found favorite "effective" carb called Tabbouleh. It is found in the bulk section in our health food store. I just looked it up and it's a whole grain, and 1 cup has 26 grams of fiber! It's so simple to make too. Start with a 1/2 cup of Tabbouleh, pour boiling water over it, and stir. Add 1tb. olive oil, and chopped tomatoes (if you like). After it sits a moment, you can add a few tablespoons to most salads. I sauteed my spinach, fresh mushrooms, added Feta cheese, and my (premixed) Tabbouleh - 2 Tb. , it's so healthy and tasty. Just the right spice blend for spinach too. Well over this past weekend I discovered bulk produce such as; split pea soup, curry lentil soup mix, and Tabbouleh. Just a half cup of each of these items, mixed with a little boiling water in a bowl, stir, and wallah, you've got a great lunch for under 5 grams of sugar, and next to nothing on carbs. These taste great on a snowy afternoon, but I wouldn't know much about that! It has been raining here for the past few days, and we have just had our second lightening and thunder show for the winter. It's been cold here about 62 degrees! Say a little prayer for Rosalie too! Hope all our Sista's are doing well and losing!
