Dr Oz Puts "YOU: On a Diet" - Weight Loss Plan
Oprah's got a new diet plan. Based on studies of overweight people who slimmed down and kept the pounds off, Dr. Oz's new plan is laid out in his new book "YOU: On a Diet," a collaberation with Dr. Michael Roizen. This one, they say, will really work.
Sustainable weight loss and a shrinking silhouette. Studies have shown a link between waist measurement and overall health. "YOU: On a Diet" tells the reader to "ditch the scale in favor of the tape measure," and set a goal of 32.5 inches for women, 35 inches for men.
In their studies, Dr.s Oz and Roizen noticed that people who cut back 400 calories a day ended up gaining back all their lost weight. The book recommends a more sustainable program: eating only 100 less calories a day, while adhering to a few key principles regarding intake.
Five forbidden foods:
- Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils
- High fructose corn syrup
- Enriched flour
- Bleached flour
- Buy foods with less than 4 grams each saturated fat and sugar.
- Stock up on fruits and veggies.
- Avoid fat-free foods that are high in sugar.
- Opt for oil and vinegar instead of salad dressing.
- Avoid artificial ingredients.
Curb your cravings:
- Keep apples, carrots and nuts on hand for an emergency crunch.
- A glass of vegetable juice can take the edge off hunger.
- Know what you really want. Water, sex, or sleep could be all you need.
- Adding spices to your food can burn fat and help you feel satisfied.
Skipping any meal can slow your body down, but breakfast is what wakes your metabolism up in the morning. "People who eat breakfast every day are thinner," says Dr. Oz.
No complex schedules or difficult diagrams here... the prescribed exercise here is simple and effective. According to Dr. Oz, the only four activities you'll ever need to do are these:
- Walk 30 minutes a day.
- Lift weights 30 minutes a week.
- Sweat an hour a week.
- Stretch every time you exercise.
In addition, there are beginner, medium, and advanced workout videos available.
