Hottest Way to Lose Weight: Count Only Sugar Calories

17 Jun

We all know sugar is bad for you, but for some people it can be the reason they are either gaining weight or having trouble losing it (if you have an apple-shaped body, you are already prone to weight gain from sugar so listen up).

Jorge Cruise’s latest book, The 100: Count ONLY Sugar Calories and Lose Up to 18 Lbs. in 2 Weeks, has a new approach to calorie consumption.

According to Cruise, all calories are not created equal. Sugar calories are the ones that one will get you into trouble.

You can eat unlimited amount of calories, or freebies, and still lose weight as long as you consume only 100 sugar calories per day (sugar calories include carbs like bread, pasta, as well as starchy vegetables and fruits).

Basically, this is a low carbohydrate approach but the difference is that you don’t have to eliminate carbs totally, just limit them to 100 calories per day (not easy but do-able).

Low Carb Substitutions

I find that the best way to cope with an eating approach that limits carbs is to get creative and make low glycemic substitutions for your favorite foods. If you have any favorite low carb substitutions, feel free to leave a comment below.

Here’s a single serving cake recipe Jorge Cruise created, courtesy of the Dr. Oz show, which contains almond flour instead of white flour.

2-Minute Cake With Almond Flour

1/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend

1/2 cup almond flour

3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/8 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 egg

2 tbsp half & half

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until the mixture contains no lumps. Pour 1/4 of the mixture into a mug and microwave for 2 minutes. Refrigerate remaining batter for later.
