Dr Oz: Anti-Inflammatory Diet Vs Foods That Cause Inflammation

Dr Oz says inflammation is the number one cause of most health conditions, so he shared an anti-inflammatory diet to ease your aches and pains.

Dr. Tanya Edwards says foods we eat, including refined carbohydrates and saturated fats, cause inflammation in the body and can be linked to just about every single disease that we know of. She breaks down the biggest food triggers for inflammation into 4 different categories.

  • Saturated Fats – Meat and high-fat dairy products.
  • Refined Carbs – Foods like white pasta and rice, bagels and sugary pastries.
  • Trans Fat – These prolong the shelf life of foods, but are big triggers for inflammation and they include fried and processed foods.
  • Omega 6’s – Unhealthy fats like corn oil.

Dr Oz: Anti-Inflammatory Meal Plan

Breakfast – Fat-free Greek Yogurt with walnuts, berries, cinnamon and a cup of black coffee. Would you believe that coffee is the #1 antioxidant in the American diet? The problem comes when you add stuff like sugar and cream to your coffee.

Dr Oz says inflammation is the number one cause of most health conditions, so he shared an anti-inflammatory diet to ease your aches and pains.

Lunch – Salad with dark greens, vegetarian chili and a cup of Green Tea.

Dinner – Salmon with green beans and roasted red potatoes with feta cheese.

Dr. Edwards says you will begin to feel better and have fewer aches and pains after just week of this anti-inflammatory diet.

Dr Oz: Healthy Onion Ring Recipe

Dr. Oz says if you are following his anti-inflammatory diet, but still want to cheat from time to time, you need Todd Wilbur’s fast food alternatives that are even Oz-Approved! Todd says you can still feel like you’re cheating without eating foods that cause inflammation if you try his food “hacks”.

Hardee’s or Carl’s Jr. – Get rid of the red meat and swap for ground turkey and top with swiss chard instead of lettuce, olive oil mayo instead of regular mayo, all nestled inside of a whole wheat bun instead of a regular bun. Regular burger=17 grams saturated fat, Todd’s=3 grams.

Burger King – We all love onion rings, but they are deep fried, so Todd recommends breading your onions in whole wheat panko crumbs and dipping them in buttermilk. Then spray them with non-stick olive oil cooking spray and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Wendy’s Chili – Todd says to make your own chili and take out the red meat and replace it with chicken. Add Turmeric and ground hot peppers, which both contain natural anti-inflammatory properties, to make your own version of chili that is better for your body and tasty, too.

Dr. Oz sampled each of Todd’s alternatives and says they taste even better than the originals, so they must be good, right?
