Dr Oz Weight Loss Hot List
Dr Oz’s Weight Loss Hot List will include some of the latest Weight Loss Products on the market, such as The Halsa Mat or the Pulse-A-Mat, PGX Fiber Supplements and the T-Fal Actifry Deep Fryer. I cannot post the recap of this segment yet, since this episode of Doctor Oz has not yet aired, but I have done my own research on these products so I thought I’d share what I have learned so far! And of course, later on today I will post a full recap of everything Dr Oz talks about on this show, so don’t forget to come back.
Dr Oz: Halsa Mat Review
The concept behind the Halsa Mat, a Swedish Acupressure Mat that has been widely used in Europe, is that you can lose weight simply by lying down on your back. The Halsa Mat or the Pulse-A-Mat is a mat that is made-up of thousands of spikes (8,820 to be precise!) that activate your acupressure points. One theory is that the Pulse-A-Mat can lower your Cortisol levels, and this controls how much belly fat your body stores. Other side benefits of the Halsa Mat, according to their website, is that it seems to be great for “back pain, insomnia, migraine headaches, or simply want to relax after a long or stressful day.” However, the official website did not mention anything about weight loss being a benefit of using the product, so it should be interesting to hear what Dr Oz has to say about this.
Dr Oz: PGX Fiber Supplements
Dr Oz is forever speaking about the importance of getting enough fiber in our diet. A fiber-rich diet helps everything from constipation to losing weight. However, most women in America are only getting 12 grams of fiber everyday, and they should be getting 25-30 grams of fiber. This is where PGX Fiber Supplements come in. PGX is short for PolyGlycopleX, which is made up of three polysaccharides: sodium alginate, konjac mannan and xanthan gum. The PGX Fiber Supplements mixture was developed at the University of Toronto in Canada and is touted as a super fiber because it may just be the most effective fiber out there. PGX Supplements help to curb your cravings so that you eat less while still feeling full and it can also stabilize your blood sugar. Sounds like the Metamucil on our counters might just have to move over to make room for this super charged fiber!
Dr Oz: T-Fal Actifry Review
Losing weight can be difficult when the junk food cravings hit. But what if you could eat your favorite fried foods, like french fries or chicken wings, all without the extra fat and calories from being soaked in oil? In the past, I would have suggested baking these “fried foods” to cut back on the oil and fat. But Dr Oz found a great kitchen gadget called the T-Fal Actifry Fryer which lets you prepare “fried foods” with very little fat. For example, you can fry 2 pounds of french fries with just one tablespoon of oil. Show me any other machine that lets you do this? The ideas of foods to cook in the T-Fal Actifry keep filling my mind: potato chips, sweet potato fries, egg rolls, pierogies, stir fry… the options seem limitless!
