Dr Oz: Fat-Blasting Salmon Recipe
Did you know fats can help you lose weight? (Yup, you read that correctly!) So in addition to the Ayurvedic Diet Secrets like the Ayurvedic Massages and Ayurvedic Recipes, Dr Oz revealed which 5 superfats (olives, canola oil, avacado, pistachio, and salmon) can actually make you skinny by putting your body into fat burning mode. He challenged Chef, Franklin Becker, to make a healthy, yummy dish using all of the healthy fats. Could he do it? He came up with an incredible delicious Fat-Blasting Salmon Recipe. Chef Becker says to add these fats to your diet over the next 5 days and watch the pounds melt away.

Olives help you build lean body mass to help burn fat. Olives also help fill you up so you eat less. (They’re also not bad in martini’s, but that’s a different show!)
Canola oil has the lowest saturated fat content of all the oils (7%). It contains half the saturated fats of olive oil. It has no flavor so it won’t mask the taste of your food but will still give you health benefits.
Avocado has a creamy texture, like butter, but it contains less sat fat. Many use avocado to replace mayonnaise in sandwiches. 1 Cup of avocado is proven to contain 40% of your daily fiber. It also helps keep you satiated.
If you really want to lose weight, look to pistachios. They contain linoleic acid, which helps to keep your metabolism revved.
Doctor Oz has talked about salmon since the beginning of his show. Salmon contains healthy fats and omega 3 s to help fight belly fat. Plus, it’s affordable.
