Dr Oz did a segment called Dr Oz’s Flavor Weapons for Weight Loss because the foods that we often love the most are the ones that are the worst for us. If you want great tips for avoiding high sugar and high fat meals, but do not want bland low calorie meals, Doctor Oz’s Flavor Weapons will add some spice and flavor to your healthy dishes!
Dr Oz: Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Recipe
Dr Oz said that by adding a Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette to your carbs (like mashed potatoes), it makes them taste zesty while slowing down the absorption of the carbs into your body, decreasing your post-glucose response and it makes your stomach stay full for longer – all because of the vinegar! If you usually put 2 TB of butter on your potatoes, that is 200 calories. You can use 2 TB of this vinaigrette for just 73 calories. Dr Oz’s Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette is made out of sun-dried tomatoes, red wine vinegar, onion, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper.

Dr Oz: Chili Pepper Sauce Recipe
Dr Oz said that all of us should start our morning with protein, like eggs or an omelet. A great way to spice up your eggs is by adding a Chili Pepper Sauce, which has Capsaicin that helps to quench your appetite and it raises your body temperature to boost your metabolism.
