Dr Oz: Can You Pinch More Than An Inch?
Dr Oz said that if you can pinch more than an inch of fat on your belly, that is a problem. One inch is normal, but your visceral fat is deep inside of your body on top of your organs, and this is the fat that is toxic to your body.
Dr Oz: How Big Should Your Waist Be?
Dr Oz said that a 50″ waist like Santa Claus is not good. Belly fat is the number one indicator of toxic fat in your body. Men’s waists should be under 40″ and Women’s waists should be under 35″.
Dr Oz: Omentum Fat
Dr Oz showed the omentum, or belly fat, of a slim person and another omentum of an overweight person. If you have a big belly, then your omentum gets very thick – hence why it is the Grinch in Your Gut and the most dangerous fat in the world. Dr Oz did a demonstration to show how fat cells get swollen as you gain weight and they release chemicals into your blood stream that can act toxic.
Dr Oz: Naughty or Nice List – Weight Loss Tips
1. Dr Oz: Decaf Coffee for Weight Loss
Dr Oz said that decaf coffee is good for weight loss (compare to caffeinated coffee), especially in people who are stressed. People with a high level of stress release more cortisol, and caffeine only revs up your system even more so that you get more belly fat. So, replace your caffeinated coffee with decaffeinated coffee during stressful periods.
2. Dr Oz: Watching TV is Bad for Weight Loss
Dr Oz said that watching television, even Christmas movies, are naughty because 90% of people who watch an hour or more of tv every day fail at their weight loss goals. So, while you watch tv make sure to do situps, pushups, run on an elliptical or stretch yourself out.
3. Dr Oz: Spot Reduce with Sit-Ups Don’t Work
Dr Oz said that Spot Reduction with sit-ups does not work, because you cannot spot reduce fat. The only way to get rid of fat is through cardio exercise like jumping jacks, walking or taking a hike.
