My day with Jorge and the Gang.......

Good Morning everyone,

I had such a great day yesterday. I got to go and meet Jorge in San Diego. I was in the bank Wednesday afternoon around 3pm making a payment and got a phone call from Oliver at Jorge's office. I already know him from corresponding with him and Evan about me being n Jorge's new book coming out the end of this month. (The link to order is on the left on Amazon.com)
The Belly Fat Cure Quick Meals: Lose 4 to 9 lbs. a week with on-the-go CARB SWAPSGuess what? I am on page 10. Woo Hoo!

So Oliver said would you like to fly over here to San Diego with some others and meet Jorge and taste some of his new recipes and be in a video? So I was like: SURE!! But I will drive, I live in Chino Hills and its not that far. I guess this girl Kellie was supposed to go but got real sick - so I was the stand-in and happy to do it.

So he emailed me all the info on where and what to bring to wear. I got all my stuff ready, I was told to bring 3 each dresses, tops, pants and shoes. It said high heels for women only. haha.

I was supposed to be at Jorge's house at 11am, so I got up early - couldn't really sleep. I was excited. I ate my breakfast of: 2 eggs, turkey bacon, berries, and a carb chopper wheat tortilla w/cheese, and of course coffee.

I put my stuff in the car and got a phone call saying it was put off until 12 so I went back in and checked my email and saw that email from them saying it was changed to 12. I also noticed that Amber and Anthony (who lost over 200lbs ) was on the list of email recipients.

Ok so I left at 9:30 and my GPS said it would take 2 hours. I was almost there and got a call saying to meet them at this Best Western instead. So I went there and the girl at the counter didn't know who Jorge was or what I was talking about. I looked out the front window and saw 3 people sitting at a table around the pool, walked over and saw Amber. I said Hey, and she started yelling- OMG, You're Here! She had no idea.

I met Anthony D'Amato and Nicole. the 3 of us talked and Evan came and picked us up and we had a light lunch. Amber and I split a salad.
Then we were taken to Jorge's Apt. near the beach.
It was just thru that alley way about 2 buildings from the beach.
It was so much fun. I also met Ali and Karl (they are married).
Super nice couple and adorable!
Me and Nicole.
So we all stood around his counter cause it looked better to stand, and we all talked and tasted his chicken recipe and had some wine and the filmed us. It was a blast.

This is Jerod holding the camera. I called him Popeye cause of his huge muscley arms, and  Oliver standing next to him.
This is Evan and I can't remember the girls name.  My middle-heimers. Duh.
The four of  them work for Jorge. All his crew is so cute and young. LOL
All of us with Jorge, Karl-Alie-Anthony-Jorge-Amber-Nicole-Me 
All of us with his crew

Then Jorge did a individual interview with each of us on camera. Jorge was so nice and not at all pretentious or stuck up like you would think, him being so famous and all.

When we were done Evan, Amber, Anthony, Nicole and I went to the beach for a few minutes.

I Left there between 5:30-6 and I really had such a great time. It was so nice meeting others with the same goals and love of the BFC.

Thanks for listening as always. Lots of love to you all.

No thoughts today - I'm still excited!

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.
