Dr Oz: Pizza Pockets, Skinny Dip & Cheesy Apple Sandwich Recipes

Dr Oz Snack Attack

Did you know that you could eat a snack before dinner and actually lose weight? In fact, Dr Oz suggests that you do so. On today’s show, Doctor Oz had his entire audience hold up a little brown bag containing one of his secret snacks that you can enjoy 1-2 hours before dinner in order to lose weight. You’ll find out what that snack is later (and don’t forget to tell us about your favorite late afternoon snack in the comments section below).

Dr Oz dedicated the entire hour to snack attack. Studies show that snacking on the right foods at the right time turn your body into a fat burning machine. Who doesn’t want that?

Dr Oz: Pre-Dinner Snacks

Do this routine 1-2 hours before dinner to help you lose 8 lbs per year.

Dr Oz Mini Pizza Pocket Recipe

Dr Oz gave healthy snack recipes like Cheesy Apple Sandwiches.

Tianna, an audience member, stated that she would love to lose 8 lbs and go down a dress size. She told Dr Oz that she would feel even more fabulous than she already was. (No lack of self-esteem here, folks!)

Dr Oz demonstrated on Tianna how important it was to do the pre-dinner snack routine to lose weight. Dr Oz had Tianna bite into a deviled egg (but not swallow yet.) Dr Oz showed an image of Tianna’s organs (not her real organs, of course, just an animation.) Tianna swallowed the egg and it went down the esophagus. The protein in the egg goes inside the intestine. The food nourishes the bacteria so that all other food eaten—healthy and not so healthy—is broken down by that good bacteria. In other words, you get rid of all the bad stuff with the good stuff. The trick to losing weight while eating is to eat the right things to get your intestines to “play on your team.”

Pre-Dinner Snack Rules:

– 6 g fiber

– 10 g protein (turns on hormones and keeps you full)

– Limit snacks to 200 calories

Dr Oz: Thin Slice Prosciutto Recipe

Eat this 1-2 hours before dinner to give it time to work. This pre-dinner snack is 200 calories and specifically works to blast belly fat.

– 1 thin slice prosciutto
– 2% mozzarella string cheese
– 2 olives
– 1 cup of zucchini
– ¼ cup of chick peas

Dr Oz had several audience members taste this snack and they loved it. (This one looked really good!)

Dr Oz: Mini Pizza Pocket Recipe

– 1 mini whole-wheat pita pocket
– 1 oz 2% reduced fat mozzarella cheese
– 2 Tbsp of pasta sauce (contains lycopene)
– 1 cup of spinach
– 2 onion slices

Dr Oz had Tianna try it and she loved it. Being a pizza fan—even without tons of meat—I’m sure I would’ve loved it too!

Dr Oz: Skinny Dips & Chips Recipe

This helps to boost your metabolism, which will help you shed the pounds quicker.

– 1/2 cup of 2% Greek yogurt
– 1 tsp of walnuts
– garlic
– black pepper
– 1 tsp of hot sauce
– ½ oz of blue potato chips (Blue potato chips contain a compound to trick your body into thinking it is thin.)
-1 cup of cherry tomatoes

The way Tianna kept digging into the chips, I assumed she enjoyed this snack.

Dr Oz Cheesy Apple Sandwich Recipe

This snack helps to fight off the last bit of the weight you’re trying to lose and, yes, like the other snacks, is only 200 calories, so eat up! Dr Oz said this snack was his favorite.

– 4 apple slices
– 3 Tbsp of low-fat ricotta cheese
– 10 almonds
– lemon juice

Directions: Core the apple and cut into rounds. Take 2 slices and spread on ricotta cheese. Sprinkle on some almonds and lemon juice. You can enjoy 2 apple slices for only 200 calories.

Dr Oz’s Favorite Snacks

Dr Oz says to buy snacks with built in portion control to help control calories.

– Blue Diamond Oven Roasted Almonds (Click here to buy them!)
– Wholly Guacamole Snack Packs – 4.99 for a 6 pack
– Peanut Butter & Co Easy Squeezy Packs – $10 for a pack of 10

Which sounds like your favorite snack? Leave a message and let me know. Me? I’m more partial to the pizza.

  20. Michelle Jackman says:

    I really like some of the snack ideas that Dr. Oz comes up with. However, he uses ingredients that are hard to find and when you do find them they are so expensive that people like me can’t afford them. I wish he would come up with something for us poor people! I can’t find blue potato chips anywhere! I can order them off of Amazon for like $ 44 bucks per small bag or 88 cents an ounce. I can’t afford to pay that for some chips when I only pay around that for about 3 meals.
