Dr Oz: Shred Your Fat Pants
Dr. Oz is on a mission to help you shred your fat pants for good. He even provided a drop box for his audience members who wanted to get rid of their fat pants right there on his show. He says there are many surprising mistakes that people make causing them to stay in their fat pants and he has some advice to help you get rid of them forever.
Dr Oz: Wearing the Wrong Pants
One of the biggest mistakes women make when it comes to wearing fat pants is actually skinny jeans. They are skinny jeans because they have lycra in them, which gives them the ability to stretch. This is a problem because we could gain a few pounds and not even realize it because our pants are just stretching as we get bigger. Dr. Oz adds that our jeans actually stretch after each time we wear them, so he says to wash them after every 2 wears, to avoid feeling too comfortable.
Dr Oz Fat Pants Mistake: Where You Eat
Dr. Oz explains that where you eat has a huge impact on your fat pants. For example, if you tend to eat on the go, say standing up, this is a problem. People who eat this way tend to consume about 30% more calories than those who sit down and focus on their meal.

Dr Oz: Wash Pajamas Twice Per Week
Sometimes it can be good to hang on to things from your past, but sometimes it is best to just shred them from your life. One audience member brought a t-shirt that she has held onto for 8 years that used to belong to her ex-boyfriend. Not only did Dr. Oz tell her to shred it so she can move on with her life, but he also said it is important to wash our pajamas frequently to keep germs from building up. The rule of thumb is to wash your pajamas twice as much as your sheets. Wash your sheets one time a week, so wash your pajamas at least twice per week.
