Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

"The Belly Fat Cure Quick Meals" Book Review

I just finished reading “The Belly Fat Cure Quick Meals.” The premise of the Belly Fat Diet is that to lose bellyfat it is necessary to limit your sugar and carb intake. Jorge Cruise states, “Hidden sugar is the enemy of a flat belly because of its relationship with insulin. If you have a high level of insulin in your body you lock in belly fat. By regulating insulin levels, you’ll stop the fat storage process.” He recommends that you consume no more than 15 grams of sugar and 6 servings of carbs each day. One serving of carbs is 5-20 grams (look at the nutritional facts of the items you eat). He calls it the 15/6 system.

The book is geared towards individuals that eat out at fast food restaurants and/or eat frozen meals or other quick meals regularly. What he does is show you what you should and should not eat according to the sugar/ carb ratio.  The books shows you the sugar/carb ration for meals at restaurants such as Applebee’s, Arby’s, Boston Market, Burger King, McDonald’s, Chevy’s, Chick-Fil-A and Chipotle and for frozen foods such as Amy’s, Lean Cuisine, Kashi and Healthy Choice.  The book also has chapters on sugar, ice cream, soda and meal replacement bars. You can get more information on the Belly fat diet at So, if you’re interested in learning more about how you can lose weight eating quick meals pick up the book, “The Belly Fat Cure Quick Meals.”
