Dr Oz: Body Type Diet
For the gals with the bigger mid-section, Dr Oz brought up an audience member who stated that she used to be smaller, but now her mid-section is much bigger. She stated that when people see her, they ask if she is pregnant. (Ouch!) She didn’t feel sexy at all. She was not a big eater either. Another audience member stated that the most frustrating part about having a big belly was being restricted on how much she could play with her kids and how much she could move around.
Lena, an audience member, spoke up for the Big Belly Body Types. She was stressed. When she walks down the street, people looked at her gut.
Dr Oz and Lena put on the gloves. Dr Oz showed the actual belly organ of someone who had a big belly and someone who didn’t. The Big Bottom sample showed intestines that did not have a lot of fat around it. The Big Belly sample showed intestines that had fat coating the entire intestinal system. According to Dr Oz, with the Big Belly intestine, you have fat around your heart, which formed plaques. Lena felt the fatty heart and noticed it was hard. (Not good!)
Dr Oz: Big Belly Body Type
Dr Oz says that the number 1 reason belly fat is harder to lose is because it is linked to stress hormones. People with big middles do not respond to a low-fat diet. Instead, eat anti-inflammatory foods. Replace simple carbohydrates with buckwheat and barley. They work and are inexpensive. Use healthy fats (like avocado and salmon) as an anti-inflammatory tool.

Dr Oz had Lena try the toast with the spread and she stated that she liked it and wasn’t even a big bread lover. (Good job, Dr Oz!)
Dr Oz: Big Stomach Diet
Exercise: Fitness Expert, Geralyn Coopersmith, stated that for the Big Belly Body Type, you need a good cardiovascular workout. Avoid the steady cardio. You need to work in bursts by doing metabolic disturbance training (Example: Straddle on a step, go fast, go slower, go fast, go slow).
