Dr Oz: Burn Fat Fast!

Do you have problem areas on your body that you would just love to get rid of? (Yeah, me too!) On today’s show, Doctor Oz shows you how to burn fat fast in those problem areas. Find out how to blast belly fat, how to get rid of your big butt and more with Dr Oz’s 7 Day Solutions to bust that fat.

Dr Oz: GLA Pills & Calcium Pyruvate

Dr Oz spoke about how GLA Pills and Calcium Pyruvate burn fat in your body.

Dr Oz: GLA Supplement Pills

Do you want to get rid of that belly fat once and for all? Doctor Oz says more than half of all women in America struggle with belly fat. It’s linked to stress. The more you stress, the more stress hormones your body makes. Your body holds on to belly fat tighter in case it needs extra fuel.

Nel, an audience member, told Dr Oz she hated her belly. She’s single and wanted to date but felt uncomfortable with her big belly.

Dr Oz: GLA Pills & Beans Burn a Fat Gut

Try GLA supplements plus 1 cup of beans at every meal. This combination sends calming signals to the fat storage. Take 1000 mg of GLA before every meal. For the next 7 days, try to have 1 C of beans with every meal. (Try eating chickpeas for breakfast. For lunch, try 1 cup of black beans with your meal. For dinner, also do a cup of beans with your meal.)

Dr Oz: Chitosan & Whey Protein Shake

Looking to slim down your big butt? Dr Oz says some people are more prone to hold on to fat back there. It’s the first place you gain weight and the last place you lose.

Serena, an audience member, told Dr Oz that she was frustrated with her big butt because it was difficult to find pants to fit her bottom.

Dr Oz: 7 Day Solution for a Big Butt

Try a Chitosan and Whey Protein Shake. Use this shake as a replacement meal for breakfast and lunch for the next seven days. When you eat fats, the Chitosan inhibits the fat from being absorbed. Whey Protein is a muscle builder. Mix 1 scoop of whey protein with 1000 mg Chitosan. ( Remember, eat this for every breakfast and lunch and have a healthy dinner for the next 7 days.)

Dr Oz: Parsley Tea & Sweet Potatoes

Big arms (or bat wings as some like to call them) are a sore spot for women. Doctor Oz says the fat located on your arms is dangerous for your heart because the fat deposited there is concentrated.

Dana, an audience member, told Dr Oz that with summertime approaching, she wanted to wear sleeveless shirts and dresses but was too embarrassed.

Dr Oz: 7 Day Solution for Big Arms

Try 6 C of parsley tea plus 3 sweet potatoes every day for 7 days. This combination is delicious and will make you feel full. At each meal, eat a serving of sweet potatoes. (For instance, try sweet potato pancakes for breakfast and then eat baked sweet potato fries for lunch. Use sweet potatoes as a side dish for dinner.)

Dr Oz: Calcium Pyruvate & Meat Substitutes

Are your fat thighs making it difficult to fit into your favorite pair of jeans? Dr Oz says the fat on your thighs have a lower blood flow, which makes it more difficult to lose fat there. Fat is stored in the thighs to keep it away from your internal organs.

Leah, an audience member, told Dr Oz that she wanted slimmer thighs and was tired of her tree trunks. She lived in Miami and wanted to wear sexy outfits.

Dr Oz: 7 Day Solution for Thunder Thighs

Try Calcium Pyruvate plus meat substitutes for the next 7 days. Take 1000 mg of calcium pyruvate before meals. Eat meat substitutes such as veggie burgers or soy hot dogs. You need to give up meat for the week because they have saturated fats and will build up fat in the thighs. Get your protein from plant sources instead.

Comments to Dr Oz: GLA Supplements, Calcium Pyruvate & Parsley Tea Fat Burners

  1. Dr. Oz help please!!! I have something wrong with me that no specialist Dr. that I have seen have been able to tell what it is. It all started five years ago when I had a major surgery. One month after my surgery, I felt dizzy and I passed out. Since that time I am still struggling with this condition. I feel like my life is over because I can’t work or do things like normal people do. Any advice?

  2. Livya S. says:

    Where can I buy the GLA 1000 mg as mentioned in your show?


  3. Roberta Mack says:

    Dr, Oz
    Thanks so much for the fat busters episode. I want to try all of them but I am confused about what is considered a full meal, For instance the belly fat prevention method mentions taking a 1000 mg capsule of GLA and 1 cup of beans with each meal. What other foods should I have with each meal or am I just suppose to eat the beans and take the GLA? HELP please, Anxious to get started.

    Where can I purchase the GLA 1000mg

  5. Connie,

    I found all of the things that dr.oz mentioned today on bestpricenutrition.com

  6. Don’t try looking for 1000mg of GLA in one pill, you won’t find it. It takes any where from1000-1500mg of Primrose oil to get just 150 mg of GLA. Borage Oil, it takes 1000mg to get 240mg of GLA. Black Curran oil has even less. To get 1000mg of GLA you’re looking at 4-5 softgels minimum.

  7. Ant – I have been researching the 1000mg dosage too and it is ridiculous how many pills with GLA in it you would have to take to reach 1000mg. And then to do this 3x a day? Even the highest concentrated GLA is only 240mg so that means 4 pills each time. Hopefully someone can get some clarification on the actual dosage. Depending on the brand, 1000mg supplement can contain anywhere between 90mg – 240mg of GLA. Am I reading wrong? I tried to watch the Oz episode to see if there was a little more detail but I can’t locate it. Any help or insight??

  8. Kally Carter says:

    Does anyone know the difference in the GLA supplement and the green coffee bean extract…or if there is a difference? Which works the best?

  9. Melissa-I could see doing 1000mg of Borage Oil (240 mg GLA) 3x’s a day. That makes sense,

  10. Kally- GLA is an acid in a “Good Fat”. Just like fish oil, flax oil, coconut oil, and so on. It’s found mostly in borage oil, evening primrose oil, or black currant oil. Green coffee bean is completely different.

  11. I started the butt slim down shake this morning. My question is does anyone know how much of the milled flaxseed we’re supposed to put in the smoothie? It says 1/2 pack. But, I bought a big back of milled flaxseed. Do you know how much I should be putitng in this smoothie?

    Also, I wanted to ask, would it be okay to do the thigh burning calcium pyruvate before meals while also doing the smoothies for breakfast and lunch for the butt slimming?

    Thank you

  12. Dr Oz suggested that 1000 Mg of GLA Gamma Linolenic Acid be taken before meals. I cannot find 1000 Mg anywhere. I keep getting mixtures with the highest Mg being 300 and says to take only one a day . What am I missing ?

  13. connie correia says:


    Thanks for the info.

  14. I’ve looked everywhere for the comments Dr. Oz made about the cardamon, amise, and celery seeds, and cannot find it. Just wanting to know how they work and how much I should take. I have about 30 lbs i’m wanting to lose and need all the help I can get!!!

  15. No one seems to know the answer to this question : Do we take three pills three times a day to reach 1000 Mg of GLA or one pill three times a day of 1000 Mg borage oil ? Everyone is asking and there are no firm answers out there. I can’t believe Dr Oz hasn’t been alerted to this question. His show was very unclear.

  16. You can find the GLA 1000mg at Wholefoods I just purchased it today

  17. I’ve been on the GLA and beans fat flush for 4 days. Something better happen in the next 3 days or I call BS!!!!! I’m bloated and full of gass…….NO fat gone from my belly. I am 5 ft. 2 in and weigh 126 lbs. I workout EVERY day. My only problem is my stomach area. This diet and supplement has done NOTHING!!!!!

  18. Tami,
    What is name of the supplement you bought which has 1000mg GLA?

  19. Update: I have lost no fat on my belly. Its actually larger than befote. Dr. Oz is a quack. No fan here!!!

  20. Michele says:

    I can only find Combinations of GLA, can you use those? Can you combine the solutions for big butt, tummy and arms together or do you have to do each separate?

  21. sarah mcdaskel says:

    Has anyone tried the sweet potato and parsley diet? I have and nothing yet.

  22. Trisha says:

    Seriously …. sweet potato diet, chitosan and whey protein, 1 cup of beans 3x a day (your husband will love you the next day) … IN SEVEN DAYS … come on ladies, if you are overweight, THINK for a second … “how long did it take you to put on those extra pounds” … do you think that it’s going to come off in 7 DAYS! GLA, Green Coffee Bean Extract, African Mango, Raspberry Ketones. I like Dr OZ and all but arrrggggg!!!
    Try this … eat a balanced diet, whole foods, every meal think protein, low glycemic carbs and essential fatty acids and don’t forget exercise … SUPRIZE Weight LOSS!

  23. It says to take 1000 mg of GLA with EVERY meal plus 1 cup of beans w/ every meal. That would be 4 softgel caps at evey meal right? Because my GLA is a mixture also & it has 1300mg borage oil & 299 mg GLA. The highest recommended dose is up to 5 softgels daily.


  24. sarah mcdaskel says:

    Hey everyone, Pure Health is a scam. They are promoting and selling the green coffee bean. Look on the pure health in face book and see the hundreds of people who are upset about this scam.

  25. My friend is taking the calcium pyruvate and eating non meat protein. She’s seen a change in definition but she stepped up her exercise to more of a bootcamp that’s going to have you doing compound movements. This is different than her getting on the elliptical and then getting on a weight machine. She feels like it’s working but not with just the supplement or food change alone.

  26. Where can I buy GLA weight loss supplement?

  27. carol whiteman says:

    I tried the 6 cups a day of parsley tea and a sweet potato at each meal and stopped all
    other carbs. After 7 days nothing happened. what was supposed to happen? Is Dr oz
    just promoting products for a kickback. I’m confused. I counted on this because I have
    huge upper arms and a heart condition. Why would he tell people to do this for 7 days if nothing happens?

  28. rich brown says:

    can men take GLA pills as well?

  29. Swanson’s Vitamins (http://www.swansonvitamins.com/) has the purest GLA I could find. Mega-GLA 300. I took 3 softgel 3 times a day w/1 c of beans and saw a difference. I am a diabetic and keep my carbs to 45 a meal and exercise on a regular basis.

  30. NOW company makes a 1,000mg Calcium Pyruvate
    Milled flax seed meal. Start with two teaspoons a day
    and after a couple weeks, gradually increase to 2 tablespoons.
    Continue forever.

  31. This is day 5 for me and still nothing has happened. All I’m getting is more weight put on. I have to admit I could not find any GLA 1000 mg at the Vitamin shop ,where I live, only 300mg. I have been taking GLA 3 x a day (900mg) with 1 cup of beans with my meals. If I take an extra pill that would reach me at 1,200 will that be safe? Also I feel I would be adding more weight with adding one more meal just to take 1 more pill. Any advice people?
