No cravings for sweets, no huge hunger pangs, feeling comfortably full after eating and it really fits into my lifestyle. I'm so happy for you and you are making wonderful progress!

        10. According to me this is because muscle is more metabolically active than body fat. So physical activity leads to immediate calorie expenditure during a particular workout, and also helps us to continue burning extra calories even when our fitness routine is over.

        11. Great progress! What helps me keep good shape is military grade nutritionals. Their pre-workout supplements are awesome. They give me quick boost of energy and enhance my physical capacities. I am gaining endurance and strength, which make me ready to train more effectively.

        12. So amazing and inspirational!

        13. Purple Rosy....thank you for this blog...I know it's going to help me.....I was wondering if you could post an example of what you eat in a day. Or 2 or 3 ideas for lunches and dinners.

          Thank you in advance

          1. I usually do post pictures of what I eat. push the home button and look over the recent posts.

        14. Rosalie what do you think of the happy hormone diet vs broc? Please help

          1. I am just really tired of everyone copying stuff that has been out there for a long time already by someone else.
            I have always only done the ORIGINAL BFC - it fits my realistic lifestyle - for LIFE...

        15. I will start taking my picture tomorrow. Never done that before. Also, I love your dog!!!! I have 3 dogs and they are my babies. A Basset Hound, pocket beagle & mixed wire haired terrier. Sorry....guess that is not interesting to some people, but they keep me on the go and walking, which sure helps with weight loss. haha

        16. Congratulations!! Very inspirational...how tall are you?

        17. You never put your 'goal weight' measurements.

          You are an inspiration. I'm essentially your size when you began & today I started on Jorge's 'Stubborn Fat - Gone' program. My head's in the right place...and I CAN do this!!

          1. I posted a new pic with the measurements above for you.

        18. It's such a SLOW process!! Some days I get quite frustrated when I get on the scales. I'm really good about what I eat and the weight loss has been SO SLOW. At 12 weeks, I've lost 15 lbs. I realize it didn't go ON overnight, but wish is would come off a bit faster:-) I don't want to become an exercise freak...because I know I'd never keep up with that (aka failure) so I'm taking it slow. But...It.WILL.Come.OFF.

        19. Im not sure if my last msg went through.....long story short I weigh 173 goal is 140 and have lost 11 lbs in 3 weeks but at the end of week 4 no weight loss is that normal I thought you should loose weekly with bfc? Also is it ok to just limit no more than 100 carbs a day to make it easier? My husband lost 80 lbs on bfc after we got married and thats what he did but that seems like a lot of carbs but when I figured it it you are allowed anywhere from 5 to 20 grams of carbs as 1 serving and you can have 6 that comes out to 120. Any tips id appreciate!! Thanks so much for your journey...glad I found you!!

          1. OK So its not healthy to lose 4-9lbs a week anyway. Try for a goal of 1-2;lbs a week. You certainly have to eat all the 6 servings of carbs a day, maybe try skipping your carbs 1 day then carbs for a few days. Change it up - but don't skip meals. 3 meals a day are a must.
            I left another reply on your other comment too.

        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.
