Dr Oz: The Day-Off Diet
Dr Oz revealed his “biggest weight loss plan to date” that has taken him and his team three years to put together. He incorporated new science from top weight loss experts as well as a poll from over 1,000 Americans, to create The Day-Off Diet. That means every week, dieters get one day to eat whatever they want! The Day-Off Diet means you don’t have to feel deprived, and you can choose your day off in order to see results. For the other days, dieters get a customizable meal plan packed full of vegetables, healthy protein, and complex carbs. One of the perks of Dr Oz’s new diet is that you can eat unlimited vegetables whenever you want!
For the last three months, his show’s team as well as The Good Life Magazine team enlisted more than 600 people to try out the plan. His entire audience was filled with those people who together have lost more than 1,300 pounds!
Of the 600 women across the country, all had different ages, sizes, and weight loss goals. They were separated into three different test groups then put on the plan. The first group tested the plan for 10 weeks, while the second group tested it for six weeks. The third group, the largest group of 400 women, tried it for just 2 weeks as a rapid weight loss solution.
Dr Oz: Day-Off Diet Success
The tests showed that on The Day-Off Diet, you can lose up to seven pounds in the first week, losing an average of 2 pounds per week afterward. 72% of people dread a diet, which is why Dr Oz was determined to change that and help you find success in your weight loss. Women in the audience raved about how easy the diet was to follow.
Dr Oz: What To Eat On The Day-Off Diet
To help people understand exactly what to expect, he wanted to walk through the plan step by step. The first thing you do is start your day with hot water with lemon, to wake up your digestive system. Then, for breakfast you can eat it or drink it. Try eggs with Greek yogurt and fruit. To drink your breakfast, you can combine 1/2 a banana, Greek yogurt, almond butter, ice, and ground flaxseeds, which adds up to 25 grams of protein to keep you full and decrease cravings.
For lunch and dinner, you build your own plate with non-starchy vegetables, protein, and complex carbs. You can eat as many of the 40 non-starchy vegetables as you want, and then eat just six ounces split between the two meals of lean protein like fish, chicken, or tofu. You can have two servings on complex carbs split between lunch and dinner, going for squash, corn, peas, sweet potatoes, or other complex carbs such as quinoa, oatmeal, brown rice, or 100% whole wheat bread.
Dr Oz: Taking A Day Off On Your Diet
So what about that day off? You can eat anything you’re craving on that one day, and because 88% say dieting is hard, that is good news! Dr Oz’s day off makes it much easier and it doesn’t have to be the same day each week, either! It’s a good idea to plan ahead for birthdays or other celebrations so that you can use those special events as your day off. The random choosing based on your schedule is what makes this diet really work!
Rather than telling yourself you can’t have certain foods at all, it’s a lot easier to tell yourself you can on certain days. It’s easier both physically and psychologically, which makes it easier to lose weight!
