Lose 10 Pounds in 14 Days
A Recipe For Weight-Loss Success
Unlike other diets that call for some sort of deprivation, Jorge's 3-Hour Diet plan goes against the grain with a program that's rich in flavorful foods. Regardless of your tastes, there's something for everyone, Jorge points out. In The 3-Hour Diet Cookbook, Jorge serves up four 14-day Quick-Start Plans that are broken down by preferences: Vegetarian, Meat Lovers, Heart Healthy and Carb Lovers. Each plan consists of daily menus that have a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat.
As an added convenience, all recipes make four servings and are appropriate for adults and children alike. He likens the experience of following The 3-Hour Diet Cookbook to going to a restaurant and ordering off of a menu of enticing foods. For example, a day on the Meat Lovers plan looks like this:
Breakfast: Ham and cheese pita
Morning Snack: Nature Valley Granola Bar
Lunch: Roast Beef with Swiss and Russian dressing on whole-grain roll
Afternoon Snack: Veggies and Dip
Dinner: Apricot Pork with Baked Potatoes and Mixed Veggies
Dessert: Frozen Banana Ice Cream
Here are five great recipes from The 3-Hour Cookbook.
Marinated Flank Steak
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
Zest and juice from 2 limes
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 lb. flank steak
4 cups Napa cabbage, shredded
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
2 pita breads
Preheat grill or grill pan over high heat until it is very hot. Stir together first five ingredients and coat flank steak with marinade. Grill steak on both sides to desired temperature, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from heat, tent with foil and let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Spray a large sauteacute; pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add shredded cabbage to hot pan and cook, stirring constantly, until cabbage just starts to wilt. Stir in sesame oil. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Cut steak across the grain into thin strips and divide evenly on top of the cabbage salad. Serve with 1/2 pita bread.
