Dr Oz: Mayonnaise Substitute
In this segment, Dr Oz introduced Erica, a Dr Oz Fan who previously weighed 328 lbs. Erica had lost 178 lbs. and came to the show to give others her 3 Quick Fixes to Weight Loss.
1. Condiment Cures: Instead of mayonnaise, combine Greek yogurt, dill, and Worcestershire Sauce to use in chicken salad. Dr Oz tasted the recipe and stated that it was delicious. He also had the health factors checked out and found out that Erica’s condiment cure was a whopping 79 calories less per serving. That calculated to 6 lbs. of weight loss per year.
Dr Oz: Smell Banana to Prevent Cravings
2. Cravings Killer: Use bananas as a great snack to eat instead of junk food. Erica stated that just smelling a banana helped her cut the cravings. Dr Oz researched and found out that there are studies that support that sniffing the fruit is actually tricking the brain into thinking that you’re eating it.
Dr Oz: Hot Sauce Recipe
3. Sauce Switches: Instead of using dressings that are high in fat, Erica mixes olive oil and balsamic vinegar for her salads. She also makes her own hot sauce by using vinegar and peppers. Place the mixture in a jar for a few days and then toss in a blender. You can also add garlic and parsley for a zestier taste.
