Did you know that your appetite is a direct result of how much sugar you eat? In other words if you eat less sugar, you won't be hungry. And, isn't that the key to being able to stick to a diet?? The truth is that you are eating foods packed with hidden sweeteners that deliver a belly-fattening Sugar/Carb Value.

The changes from the original plan

Part of the reason that this strict Belly Fat Cure didn't work for me was the lack of dairy.  I love yogurt and learned long ago that the benefits of putting live acidophiles bacteria into my diet are many things including digestion and preventing yeast infections.  So, I am doing the Belly Fat Cure, but I am including fat free/sugar free yogurt every day and not counting the sugar.  From everything that I have been reading, lactose, which is the sugar in dairy products, digests differently in the body than all other sugars.

Another reason that I had trouble was the cost.  It is far cheaper to buy a package of bagels for $2.99 and have it last a week rather than buying a pound of ham or turkey ($7) and have it last 2-3 days.  Even if I cook my own meats and slice them, proteins are expensive.  So, this time, I am going to work on learning how to improve my "perfect protein" combinations of rice and beans to supplement my meats.  One of the tough parts of this option is that all other protein options are full of carbohydrates too.  So, we will see if this works.
