Doctor Oz introduced us to a group who wants to Get In Shape for a High School Reunion: Carolynn, Aimee & Tara on February 8, 2010. The show aired again on April 20, 2010, which really makes me curious about how Carolynn, Aimee and Tara are doing now! For those of you who need a review of Dr. Oz’s Back to School Weight Loss Plan, I copied it below. And don’t forget to visit Recipes For Diet for healthy diet recipes for part 1 of the back to school weight loss plan!
Back to School Weight Loss Plan:
1. Tonight’s Dinner, Tomorrow’s Lunch
Make a healthy dinner each night, and then pack it as a healthy lunch for the next day. For example, you could have poached salmon, grilled vegetables and a side of quinoa for dinner. Then for lunch, take a whole wheat wrap, put in a bit of hummus and lemon, some extra salmon, grilled veggies and quinoa… and you will have a healthy and delicious lunch. Don’t forget to use reusable lunch bags to help the environment!
2. Gym Class
Working out should be fun, so find something that you like to do. Janette showed some fun volleyball drills where you shuffle to the right and block, shuffle to the left and block, go down low and dig, take a step back and spike… anyone who has ever played volleyball will totally get this!
Create a food chart in a notebook where you track the following for breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack and dinner: food, time, calories, protein, carbohydrates, sugar and fat.
