Dr Oz: Carb Addiction Plan in 28 Days
In this segment, Dr Oz introduced audience members and best friends, Joanna, Beverly, and Tamika. Beverly loved everything with white flour in it, including pizza and pastas. Tamika was a white rice fiend and Joanna was a self-proclaimed carb junkie. (Get ready, here comes the purple gloves!)
Dr Oz showed the actual fat that surrounded the organs of the body. It’s the extra fat that inhibits the ability of insulin to work. Doctor Oz then showed a pancreas, which is responsible for making insulin. When it can’t keep up, you get diabetes. Dr Oz had Joanna uncover a dead, thick heart and asked all three women if they were willing to step up and make a change to their diet to keep their bodies healthy. All 3 said yes. (Who wouldn’t after seeing that? Yuck!)
Dr Oz’s 28 Day Plan To Kick Your Carb Addiction
Dr Oz Carb Detox – Week 1
- Eat whatever fats you want. (Yes, you read correctly!) Fill up with fats. Of course, Dr Oz prefers healthy fats such as olive oil, nuts, fatty fish, and flaxseed. There is no calorie limit. Eat as much as you want. (Can I stay in week 1 forever, please?)
Dr Oz Turn White Into Brown – Week 2
- Eat foods such as oatmeal, 100 percent whole wheat breads, brown pasta, and Quinoa. Joanna commented that some of these items tasted like cardboard. (At least she’s honest.) Dr Oz suggested to spice it up a bit for a more flavorful taste.
Dr Oz Hand to Mouth – Week 3
- Start portion control. The only measuring tool you need is your hands. Eat no more than a fistful of brown rice. (The fist will vary according to your size.) Meat and poultry should be the size of your palm (thickness and size). The thumb is the amount of fat you’re allowed to have.
Dr Oz Cheat – Week 4
- One day a week, pick what you want to eat, such as regular pasta or cake. Dr Oz’s Ideal Cheat Day is Sunday. It’s still the weekend and Mondays are too difficult to get back into.
