Dr Oz: Almond Butter Speeds Weight Loss

Dr Oz: Heidi Powell's 9-Minute Miracle Workout & Almond Butter Recipe

Chris Powell says that Iodine is an essential nutrient to help up lose weight faster. It can be found in strawberries, shrimp, and seaweed snacks.

Chris Powell, Transformation Specialist, says that he wanted to find miracle solutions for weight loss that were not fads or pills, but really natural ways for people to lose weight and get healthy.

Dr Oz: Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

Almond Butter – Almond Butter is a great replacement for peanut butter because it has more “good” fats and is high in protein and fiber.

  • 1 Cup Almonds
  • About 2 tablespoons of oil

Add both ingredients to a blend and mix until you have almond butter.

Dr Oz: Chris Powell Almond Butter Tips

  • Eat 1 teaspoon before meals so you do not overeat.
  • Spread on toast
  • Add to a smoothie

Dr Oz: Iodine Weight Loss

Chris Powell explained that Iodine speeds up our weight loss because it is the regulator of our Thyroid, which is the thermostat of our metabolism. There are some surprising sources of iodine that you may not even be aware of:

  • Strawberries
  • Shrimp
  • Seaweed Snacks

Dr Oz: Rice Bran Weight Loss

Chris Powell said that when rice is processed, it actually loses a lot of its health benefits, so eating Rice Bran is a great healthy source of fiber in your diet.

  • Add 1 tablespoon to cereal or yogurt
  • Use as filler in meat or breading
  • Use rice bran oil in cooking

Dr Oz: Heidi Powell’s 9-Minute Miracle Workout

Heidi Powell, Personal Trainer and wife of Chris Powell, told Dr. Oz that she chose 9 minutes for her miracle workout because it is attainable and very easy to fit into a busy schedule. She went on to explain that this workout is filled with miracle moves that work several body parts to give you the most benefit in a short amount of time. Heidi says to set a timer for 9 minutes and do the following moves at your own pace.

Twisting Lunge – Step back into a lunge position and at the same time touch one of your elbows to the opposite knee, so you are not only working your legs, but also your abs.

Commander Push-Up – This move is done like a traditional push-up, but when you raise up from the floor, you also bring one knee to an elbow. This adds a challenge for your core while also working your arms.

Squat Jack – This is exactly how it sounds. It is a traditional jumping jack, but when you land you go down into a squat position for an added challenge.

Leg Exercise – Lay flat on your back, with your arms out to the side. Raise your legs up and lift your butt off the floor, then drop your legs back down. Repeat.

Heidi recommends making this workout into a fun “game” by setting the timer and doing each exercise 2 times, then 3 times, and so on, trying to challenge yourself to a high number when you get to 9 minutes.

Comments to Dr Oz: Heidi Powell’s 9-Minute Miracle Workout & Almond Butter Recipe

  1. Larry Bee says:

    Taking one teaspoon of almond butter seems real conservative, it only adds about 34 calories, 3 grams of fat and 1/3 gram of saturated fat. There is 2/3 gram of protein and 1/3 gram of fiber in one teaspoon of the butter, which wouldn’t seem to make much difference on a daily or annual basis. Spreading one teaspoon on toast seems spartan.

    Did the gentleman mean one tablespoon?

  2. Thought it would interesting to compare butters made with almonds, peanuts and sesame (tahini) on a tablespoon basis:

    Almond: 98
    Peanut 94
    Sesame 89

    Total Fat and Unsaturated Fat
    Almond has 8.1g and 7.4g (0.7g saturated)
    Peanut has 7.6g and 6.0g (1.6g saturated)
    Sesame has 7.7g and 6.6g (1.1g saturated)

    Almond has 3.4g
    Peanut has 4.0g
    Sesame has 2.6g

    Almond has 1.6g
    Peanut has 1.0g
    Sesame has 1.4g

    Release 25

    Of course, one has to consider other issues such as taste and personal preference, plant sterols, vitamins/minerals and price: 16 ounces of my favorite peanut butter is much less expensive than 16 ounces of almond butter. Interestingly, one of the DrOz shows this past October showcased Tahini (sesame butter) as an important dietary supplement that could help in the effort to turn one’s health around.

  3. Larry Bee says:

    Almond butter has some advantages compared to peanut and sesame (tahini) butters, but all three have a number of unique qualities. Personal preference and price also play a part. Back in October the DrOz show identified tahini as an important dietary aid in efforts to improve one’s health (foods that could help one heal).

    Data on food nutrition can be found on the USDA Nutrient Database.
