Dr Oz: “Fat Burning Machine”
Author of “Fat Burning Machine” Mike Berland joined the show after losing 70 pounds himself. He spoke to all kinds of experts, each who whom gave him a piece to the puzzle that he then put together. Inspired by several political campaigns, Dr Oz put together The 2016 Great Weight Campaign. Mike explained that dieting is a “political candidate” that promises a lot with very little results. It’s important to find a “new candidate” to win the election.
Dr Oz polled his viewers and found that two out of three people have been overweight and when asked if diets are moving in the right direction, the answers were pretty split. Mike said you have to “flip the fat-burning switch” by eating the right foods. The right foods are used in the right way, but the bad foods flip the switch in the wrong direction, causing you to store fat. Approximately 63% of people said they believe they’re fat-storing machines.
Dr Oz: Eat Fat-Burning Foods
To flip the switch, try eating foods like good fats found in avocado, as well as lean protein, strawberries, eggs, and leafy greens. Those are foods that are a part of the Day-Off Diet, which isn’t a coincidence. Dr Oz then asked if call calories were created equal and 82% said yes, but it’s actually false. There’s fat burning and fat storing foods, which means not all calories are the same.
Dr Oz: Interval Training To Burn Fat
Mike then moved on to talk about exercise, explaining that we’re exercising too long and too hard, making ourselves too hungry and giving us the opposite results. He suggested interval training, which can be done in just minutes rather than hours. Instead of walking for 30 minutes, walk for 10 minutes, run for as hard as you can for 1 minute, then relax for 2 and a half minutes, run for a minute, relax for 2 and a half, and repeat for a total of 30 minutes.
If you’re trying to lose weight, try working out on an empty stomach. You should also eat fats instead of carbs.
