Michelle, an audience member, stated that she was tired of cutting calories and sweets. In the beginning, this worked for her, but then she would just stop doing it and the pounds would come back.
Dr Oz: Dash Diet
-Get rid of the salt (taken from The Dash Diet)- Use Italian seasoning, such as lemon pepper mix, on proteins. Chinese 5 spice contains ingredients such as ginger, coriander, cinnamon and nutmeg. This spice is also full of antioxidants. Use it in stir-fry meats and veggies for a little kick.
Dr Oz: TLC Diet
-Use tub margarine in place of butter (taken from The TLC Diet)- This will help you lower cholesterol. Take 1 tsp of wheat germ per day. You can sprinkle it on your yogurt or popcorn. Sprinkle some sesame seeds in your salad or soups. Pistachios are a delicious way to lower cholesterol. Do this for 30 days and you will reduce your cholesterol by 15 percent.
Dr Oz: Mediterranean Diet
-Eat healthy fats- (Taken from the Mediterranean Diet). Replace butter with olive or canola oil. Eat mackerel, salmon or sardines in place of red meat. Dr Oz had Michelle try a sardine for the first time. After tasting, she said it “wasn’t bad” and that it tasted like white fish. Nuts are Dr Oz’s secret for maintaining his healthy weight. He suggested Macadamia and walnuts. Eat 3 Xs per week to get the full benefits.
