Dr Oz: Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

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:
- 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.
