Dr Oz: Three-Week Weight Loss Diet
Plant-based protein is the new must-have in weight loss and health-based transformations, which is why Dr Oz was thrilled to announce his 21-Day Weight Loss Breakthrough diet to help you prevent disease, lose weight, and get healthy, all by using plant-based protein. And don’t worry, you won’t be stuck only eating salads! Dr Oz referred to the plan as a complete “nutritional reset” that will “restore your metabolism and heal your digestive tract” without having to count calories.
A meal plan is included, with avocado toast served for breakfast, any way you like it. For lunch and dinner you can have any combination of plant proteins and unlimited non-starchy vegetables. For snacks, you can enjoy fruit and nuts. This plan could be exactly what you need to finally get on track.
When road-tested with his viewers, Dr Oz found that the plan resulted in an average of 11 pounds lost and 4 inches. Plus, it was reported that the plan helped minimize bloating and increased energy.
Dr Oz: Start Your Day Off Right
Three meals and two snacks per day means you never have to go hungry. The first part of the plan is to drink two cups of oolong tea every day. It contains caffeine and polyphenols, which makes it a great way to start your day as well as a great afternoon boost. For breakfast, avocado toast contains healthy fat and fiber to keep you full. You can use 1/2 an avocado on one slice of Ezekiel toast, however you like. If you can’t handle the avocado toast, you could replace it with almond butter oatmeal instead.
Dr Oz: Plant-Based Protein
Dr Oz was hoping to change the idea that a meal isn’t complete without meat. Because there are so many meat alternatives available, Dr Oz provided examples of meals using plant-based proteins. There’s a ton of beans and legumes to choose from, as well as tofu and tempeh. You can also get protein from nuts and seeds like chia, pumpkin, hemp, or flax. The plan does allow you to have animal protein twice a week, but no more than that. That means you may need to step outside of your comfort zone a little bit.
Dr Oz proved that you can eat so much more food when you eat 200 calories of plant-based foods like non-starchy vegetables, as opposed to 200 calories of meat. You can eat an unlimited amount of those non-starchy vegetables and use up to two tablespoons of olive oil per day. That’s why you won’t go hungry!
Plus, you can have two servings of fruit per day, divided between your morning and afternoon snacks, with a tablespoon of almond butter.
