Sweet, but True

Hidden sugar has to go.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” -

Mahatma Gandhi

 Growing up in a poor Mexican-American family, I experienced firsthand the ignorant, belly-bad eating habits most of us learn in the United States, beginning at a young age. Even worse, as I reached high school I sought more and more comfort in sugary foods to numb the anxiety I felt, and I almost died from a burst appendix.

At 40 pounds overweight I finally discovered the importance of the food I was putting in my mouth.

Throughout my entire career as an author and health coach, the most important revelation I have discovered is that “hidden sugar” is without a doubt the biggest obstacle to weight loss . . . not calories! And the secret to effortlessly avoiding the hidden sugar in any meal is what my Tasty Carb SwapsTM are all about that I talk about in my new book, The Belly Fat CureTM Fast Track.

If you follow my simple recommendations, you will lose up to 14 pounds in 14 days and experience a transformation in your energy like you could never have imagined.

Here is the best part: you are ready to start right now! You don’t need to get a gym membership or buy special diet foods, because the foods that will move you from 35 to 70 miles per hour on the road to success are all found at your local grocery store.

That seemingly simple, but rather buried little gem of knowledge unlocked hundreds of thousands of pounds beginning in January 2010 with my original Belly Fat Cure book, and changed the lives of countless people. Since then, my mission in life has been greatly altered—not just by the stories of clients who have achieved success with the Belly Fat Cure program, but also by the stories of failure and shame regarding past dieting attempts. So many honest and determined people have simply wanted to know, “What do I eat?!”—yet they’ve been deprived of the truth (and food) they need to bring their bodies into balance. They’re made to feel lazy because they don’t have eight hours to kill at whichever gym is currently sponsoring The Biggest Loser. They are made to feel weak because they’re hungry and can’t seem to starve themselves enough to lose weight. No wonder they’re so frustrated, when almost every message delivered by the media regarding weight loss has been dead wrong.

At first I was sad and discouraged, but then I got to work. I reworked my life’s mission to this:

To reverse the current disease epidemic with my Tasty Carb Swap meals.

It is indeed a lofty goal. I’ll admit I’m a little surprised that I’ve ended up here, with all my energy focused on changing the world . . . it feels like only yesterday I was demonstrating exercises to firm and shape the butt.

My goal is to change the way the world eats, of course! I have written a lot of books and have met a lot of people, but never before have I been so passionate about my work or about any cause. I am devoting the rest of my professional career to spreading the core message of my Carb Swap recipes around the world, because I believe it is critical for future generations that our generation learn how to make meals that are yummy, but “Belly Good,” too. The habits—and, therefore, the health—that our children and grandchildren will inherit are the habits we have right now. That is why we must be the change we wish to see in the world!

A note from Jorge - It is very important to stay motivated. What's the trick? You need to get clear on your goal and why you are doing this in the first place. Too many people I work with know what they don't want, but they have no clue what t Continue reading
