I love my new BFC Quick Meals Book

Hello everyone, I have the most wonderful news to share, today hubby and I looked at a house that would be so perfect for us. The neighborhood is great it's only several houses down from a nurse I work with and she says she loves living there. It has three bedrooms, two baths, a finished basement and a two car garage, and we like the schools available. To my friends who are familiar with my area it's near Manito Park which we love. We really hope that this house works out for us, we didn't see any big problems with it today but obviously we would need to have it inspected and learn more about it. The biggest problems that we saw were cosmetic, the inside and outside could use a good paint job. One of the bedrooms is lime green, I don't think that I could sleep in a lime green room, but no big that's an easy fix.

Last week I bought the Belly Fat Cure Quick Meals at costco for $11.59, which is a much better price than walmart's $17 I saw the other day while picking up a prescription. I have to admit I was skeptical of the quick meals book, I thought Jorge was just trying to make more money.  I love that Rosalie is featured in this book on pg. 11 I have lots of love for Rosalie, she has helped me stay on the bfc wagon :) Big hugs Rosalie, you rock!!! I think this will be really helpful to me when I eat out. For Christmas we received a gift card to Appplebee's, the asiago peppercorn steak on pg. 27 looks delish. I think this will also help me to make better choices as arby's and subway. I really wish PF Changs was included in this book, we also received a gift card there and it seems a lot of their stuff is carby or in sauces that seem to be filled with sugar. I haven't eaten there since starting the bfc. Has anyone eaten there since doing  the bfc/ft? If so what did you get?

So far the weight I lost before and during the  Fast Track Detox Diet by Ann Louise Gittleman  is staying off, each morning I weigh between 133-134, I don't know about hubby I know he doesn't weigh every day but he is looking good. In response to Dawn's question I didn't buy a lot of supplements, I've done this before so I already had the hydrochloric acid for the sequel, and besides making sure I had enough of the veggies she recommends I just bought dandelion tea to supplement the pre-quel. Dandelion tea may be good for the liver but it tastes nasty, and do does dandelion greens. Hubby told me tonight that he has had more energy since doing the fast and I agree, my mornings have been much easier and I don't feel so tired all the time. P.S. during the detox I didn't add orange juice to the cranberry juice because I didn't have one and I didn't want to make a special trip for it, I just added an extra lemon (plus I think not having the extra sugar from the orange was good since I try to eat low sugar  even fruit sugar on the bfc)


  1. thank you for the update on the interesting. I'm so happy you found a home that would be a good fit for wishes.

  2. Thanks for the shout out and you know I have nothing but LOVE for you Girly.
    That is great to hear about your weight and the house - I hope you get it.
    Have a great day :-)

  3. Good luck with the house hunting/buying!!

  4. That is a beautiful area! I am so excited for you. You will be to busy to think about food with a house to make your very own!

  5. How exciting that you found a house that both of you are interested in! I hope your offer goes through and everything works out! I will warn you that the paperwork and escrow when buying is super stressful so have all the BFC foods nearby so you don't eat out of stress. We've bought far too many houses and it is stressful every single freaking time! Glad the weight stayed off :)
    Ps-My guinea pigs LOVE dandelion greens so I thought I would taste a piece.......NASTY! So Gross! Hahahaha! My piggies seem to love it, though.

  6. Congrats on the house Katie. I hope it works out for you. Sounds like a really nice place. The detox stuff is very interesting. I have heard of that author as she writes a column in the magazine First for women, the same one Jorge often appears in. Sending you love and hugs!
