Doctor Oz brought Devin Alexander, author of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Fattening, on his show to teach us how to make three treats to satisfy your diet, your cravings, and all in under 10 minutes. How does a Waffle Sandwich, Strawberry Shortcake & Bacon Cheeseburger sound to you? Dr Oz said that if you are trying to lose weight but dreaming of Fast Food and the Drive-Thru Window, then these recipes are for you! So far, 600,000 people have signed up for Dr Oz’s 11 Week Lose It & Move It Program, but so many people are complaining about their cravings for fast food. Devin Alexander said that she lost 70 pounds and has kept it off for close to 20 years, so you can have cravings and satisfy them while losing weight!
Dr Oz Waffle Sandwich Recipe
Devin Alexander first spoke about a Diet Waffle Sandwich Recipe. Usually, a Waffle Sandwich is stuffed with bacon and eggs, but it has 550 calories. If you use whole-grain waffles instead, and stuff them with natural peanut butter and banana slices, then you cut it down to 257 calories! Alexander made sure to point out to use natural peanut butter and not the low fat peanut butter, because the low-fat type is always full of extra sugar.

Dr Oz Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe
Doctor Oz then asked his guest what she is most tempted by at the drive-thru window, and she said a jalapeno burger. Devin Alexander came up with a delicious Diet Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe that cuts the calories from 790 calories to 350 calories! One of her great tricks is to use reduced-fat real bacon pieces rather than actual strips of bacon. Click here for the full recipe: Diet Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe.
Dr Oz Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
Dr Oz’s guest said that she loves any pastry with fresh berries for dessert, but a normal Strawberry Shortcake dessert has 500 calories. Devin Alexander’s Diet Strawberry Shortcake Recipe cuts the calories down to 190 calories, and it is even perfect to make in a to-go cup so that you can pack it in your lunch.
