Year 2, Saturday wk 8 on the Belly Fat Cure

Good Morning All,

It's gonna rain over here in southern California this weekend. So I am sure that the weather everywhere else is going to be great!

There has been many new people that have joined my blog in the past week. First of all I would like to say welcome to our little Team BFC Club!!!

Yesterday kayzfam said... 
I am in week 2 of my "cure"! I have hit the "need fiber" hump!

In the past year or so of me doing the Belly Fat Cure, I have noticed that at least half of us do experience the #2 problem. I have read many comments about that. I have tried many different things for constipation. 
These are what I have found to work best for me.
I use Clear Benefiber is my morning coffee (on the products tab)
In the afternoon I use 1 scoop of Super Seed mixed w/a cup of water. (on the products tab and the Amazon.com widget above) You must drink this fast, it does get thick quick. Tastes great made with seeds and legumes.

Yesterday I ate:
breakfast; 2 eggs, 2 slices of Oasis bread (on the products tab), w/butter and peanut butter, 1/2 avocado, 2 turkey bacon, 8 blackberries, coffee w/clear benefiber, truvia, powdered cream, cinnamon, 
this is a list of the vitamins I take every morning:
I take a multi for women over 50
2 calcium w/vitamin D
1 fish oil
1 evening primrose oil
1 in morning and 1 at night of black cohash
2 probiotics - Natural Factors, acidopholus and bifidus 10 billion  (on the products tab)

and 2 Reslina every morning It has Resveratrol and Spirulina in it and is very healthy for you. There is a link above  w/a code for $8 off, if you want to try.

Lunch; we went to the movies again, so I had some turkey lunch meat  w/string cheese in the middle and wrapped it up in plastic and put it in my purse, then had some popcorn w/o butter at the movie.

dinner; I had a spinach salad w/feta cheese, bacon bits, white tuna fish, raw zuchinni and mushrooms cut up w/ some mayo. and a cup of decaf chocolate tea (on the products tab) later in the evening.

I have been actually been having my nails done now for the first time so long - I can't even remember. I decided that I wanted to look like I feel, well at least my fingers and toes. The first time they were pink like in my previous pics of my new shoes. Today I did something weird.
I've seen lots of other people do this with colors - so.........what do you think? Weird Huh?

I am so excited to see the results of my blood tests. So awesome!! During the past year or so I have eaten eggs at least 5 times a week. Many people think the way we eat, eggs, cheese, meat, no fruit, is not healthy. So I am living proof - that this is healthy for you!! If you didn't get to see it, I posted my test results on the previous post.

Don't forget the list of my BFC friend's blogs below.

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to all of my BFC friends. 

If you have any issues or concerns or any help, please leave your comments below, and we will all help.

We are a little family here. SO welcome to the family!!

My thought for the day:

Be around people who can keep your energy and inspiration high. While you can make progress alone, it’s so much easier when you have support.
Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Hello to new bfc friends!!!! I just wanted to share my 2 cents concerning fiber, since doing the bfc I have had to take fiber supplements to keep regular, at first I felt like I was doing something wrong because I wasn't getting enough fiber from foods, and I eat a lot of salad. Now I feel fine about taking supplements.

    I like the clear benefiber, I have also tried the target brand of benefiber and personally I don't think it worked as well for me.

    I also take physllium whole husks in water, I know the texture is gross but it is affordable and I'm willin to bite the bullet to stay regular.

    I have also used the super seed and I like it, and I will use it again probably when I order some things off of amazon.

    I hope you find encouragement from Rosalie's blog, she is amazing and is very helpful. A bunch of us also have bfc blogs if you want to check us out. I think a big key to success doing the bfc is the community that the blogs provide. Without my bfc friends I know I would have quit by now. I hope everyone has a nice saturday.

    Oh, and Rosalie I love the nails! Very cute and sexy :)

  2. Rosalie, Love the nails I use to get my done all the time but have not in some time. I am sure you shoes will look great now with the toes all done.

    As far as the fiber goes....It may not work for everyone. I have had #2 problems all my life and the doctor told me that some people are just that way. The more fiber I eat the more bloated I get and my stomach turns and turns. I take it because it is good for me but I sure wish it worked on me like most people.

    Have a great weekend and take care!

  3. I love the nails!! I need to get mine done. Maybe next weekend, because my nail place is closed on Sundays. :(

    Welcome new bloggers!! :)

    I am still working on getting regular with my fiber, but I am hoping between fibers in my foods and the super seed in the afternoon, this will all help me out. :) Thank you for all your great info on today's post. Its always great to be refreshed on this knowledge. :) Thank you!!!!!!! =)

  4. Well I may be wrong in this, but I bought the Metamucil capsules that have the physllium in them. I am not sure I could gag down a thick liquid? We'll see:) Thanks for all of the good information! Down 6.2 today:)

  5. Oh and I love the nails:) It snowed here this morning, but I can't wait to have pretty toes to show!

  6. Hey Girl! Good for you for getting your nails done!! I started getting my natural nails overlayed w/ a thin layer of acrylic again in Dec and I love it! I always get a French manicure w/ white tips. Cant wear colored polish where I work being a nurse. your nails look awesome!! BTW, what color did you have on your toes before you got this last pedi? It looked like a raspberry color and I am a polish kind of girl for my toes. I love any shades of pink, especially bright & hot pink! Its a must if you are gonna wear sandals!!
    Oh, and I saw you commented on my blog about getting first dibs on running your hair through Matthew McConaugheys fabulous curly hair...I dont think so sister!! Im not sharing when I get that opportunity....(like I would ever get that opportunity!!! lol) One can only dream............ (sigh) I am jealous of that chick hes with now....lucky girl!!!!!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
