Hi my friends, this is my third attempt at writing this post...everything I tried to say before just didn't seem right. I am so thankful for this bfc community, I know that without it I would have given up a long time ago. The blogs give us a chance to connect with real people who are doing the bfc. I don't feel connected to Jorge, I am grateful to him for making me aware of the seriousness of sugar and bad carbs...but I do feel connected to the blogs I read and the people I have met. When I first started the bfc I read Amber and Rosalie's blogs front to back and was encouraged and learned how to apply the bfc and valuable tools Jorge didn't talk about...from Rosalie's blog I discovered other bfc blogs which inspired me to start my own. If I had just read about the bfc in a magazine or heard about it on tv I probably would have thought it was weird and never would have tried it. I heard about the bfc from my Mom who heard about it from her Dr. who lost 30+ lbs...I remember seeing the book at my folks house and being interested because the title caught my eye and I wanted to lose my belly fat. Doing the bfc is something I decided to do for myself, and my Mom is only kinda doing the bfc...she has given up her flavored coffee creamer, and tries to eat dark chocolate instead of a whole bar of milk chocolate.
Now that summer is finally here and all the fresh fruit is hitting the stores I find myself wondering if when fruit is fresh and in season it's ok to have small small portions and still lose. In the Q&A section of the bfc book Jorge says "fruit was created in tropical climates and in earlier times was available only certain times a year- now we have access to everything, anytime which is not how it was intended to be consumed" I am wondering if it's ok to have small portions of fruit because this is the time that it is available in a local seasonal way which is the best way for us to consume fresh fruit and veggies.
The other day at the bridal shower I had two strawberries, a small bite sized chunk of watermelon, and 3-5 grapes....it was soo good. I think I might try eating 1/4 of some of the in season fruit to keep from going crazy this summer. I don't know...what do you guys think? Well, I guess that's all for now I hope everyone has a nice day :)
