Dr Oz: Avocados Speed Up Weight Loss
Dr. Oz shared some easy solutions to help you melt away body fat, including a supplement called CLA and adding Coconut Oil to your diet. Now get ready to write down some winning combinations that will help you lose weight even faster, especially if you are already cutting calories!
Dr Oz: Food Combos That Melt Fat
Nutritionist Kate Geagan explained that she often deals in calorie-counting when helping patients get healthy and lose weight, but she said it is an added bonus if there are nutrients or certain foods that will help to speed up fat-loss, especially where belly fat is concerned.
Dr Oz: Vitamin D & Calcium Boost Fat Loss
Dr. Oz said that there is some new evidence that shows when you take a combination of vitamin D and calcium, you will boost your body’s ability to burn fat. Kate Geagan explained that if you are already cutting calories, there is a benefit to adding vitamin D and calcium to your diet because it can help you burn up to 50% more belly fat. That belly fat, or visceral fat, is the one that doctors are most concerned about because it increases your risk for heart disease and diabetes, but it is also the hardest to get rid of when you are trying to lose weight, so this combination of vitamin D and calcium could help you melt away that stubborn belly fat. Kate added that studies found that those who are overweight or obese are also most often deficient in vitamin D and calcium, so by cutting calories and adding these important nutrients to your diet, you will improve your health and get a thinner belly.
Dr Oz: Calcium & Vitamin D Guidelines
Dr. Oz shared an interesting fact about calcium. He said when you are taking a calcium supplement it literally grabs onto any fat that enters your body and pushes it out, which is what many of us would like to happen, right? There are some dosing guidelines to consider when you start taking vitamin D and calcium:
- 1,000 IUs Vitamin D per day
- 600 MG Calcium per day
- Eat yogurt
Dr Oz: Reduce Stress By Eating Oranges
Nutritionist Kate Geagan told Dr. Oz that another great combination to help melt away your fat is oranges and avocados. She explained that oranges contain vitamin C, which helps to neutralize cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that is released into our bodies when we are feeling stressed. Kate added that even women who are thin oftentimes have more belly fat because of a high amount of stress in their lives.
If you are already cutting calories, avocados combined with oranges offer a wonderful one-two punch that will speed up your weight loss because the avocados contain mono unsaturated fats. While it does not make sense to a lot of people that you would eat more fat if you are trying to lose fat, Kate Geagan explained that mono unsaturated fats are truly a secret weapon that will help you speed up your weight loss. Add avocados together with oranges to your diet for a winning weight loss combination.
Dr Oz: Ginger Matcha Tea Boosts Fat Loss
Dr. Oz found Kate Geagan’s last combination a little surprising, but she told him it is one of her favorites for fighting fat, plus it is a really wonderful afternoon drink. Her winning duo is ginger and green tea in the form of matcha tea. Kate told Dr. Oz that not only is this form of green tea loaded with antioxidants, but it also contains something called EGCG, which gives you a boost in your resting energy expenditure as well as a boost in fat oxidation.
