Dr Oz: How To Flush Fat
Dr Oz’s guest, Dr Mark Hyman, outlined a three-day plan that uses low-fat foods to flush fat, eliminate toxins, decrease insulin resistance, and fight inflammation. Those are all good things, and Dr Oz enlisted nine viewers to test the plan for themselves.
Dr Hyman said that our bodies are addicted to flour and sugar, but we can break those cycles and change our hormones and brain chemistry in the process. The first step is preparation, because you will probably need to go shopping to stock up on fat flushers, such as fiber, protein, fruit, and healthy fat. (Keep reading for a handy shopping list!)
Dr Oz: Fat Flushing Broth Recipe
The Broth Recipe used in Dr Hyman’s plan is meant to energize and satisfy you, and one woman claimed it helped her to lose five pounds during the program. Though she did not think of herself as a fan of veggies, she did grow to love this broth.
Dr Hyman said that’s because the taste buds need to be recalibrated thanks to all the processed foods in many people’s diets. One audience member who taste tested it on the spot deemed it bland.

Dr Oz: Fatty Acids Fat Flush
Dr Oz and Dr Hyman talked about fatty acids that can actually work with your goals to help you flush fat. Dr Hyman mentioned nuts and seeds as good sources, suggesting getting more Omega-3 fatty acids at the start of your day, along with a few handfuls of nuts and seeds throughout each day.
Fatty Acids can fuel metabolism, reduce the levels of your hunger hormone, and flush fat instead of storing it in the body. Try getting these effects using the Fatty Acid Breakfast Shake Recipe.
Dr Oz: Fatty Acid Breakfast Shake Recipe
- 2 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/4 cup Almond Butter
- 2 tsp Organic Flax Oil
- 1/2 cup raw Almonds (or use Pumpkin Seeds)
- 1 cup Strawberries
- Combine ingredients in a blender to your preferred consistency.
Dr Oz: Digestive Tract Flush Remedy
Dr Hyman said it is very important to go to the bathroom regularly each day during the plan. If you haven’t done so before 10 a.m., stir a tablespoon of virgin Coconut Oil into a cup of warm water, which will stimulate the body to evacuate excess waste.
Dr Oz: Protein & Fiber Power Combos
Dr Hyman said you will also need to eat three or four ounces of protein, as well as two cups of fiber twice each day. This speeds the metabolism and comes in familiar combinations like Chicken with Brown Rice or Tofu with Sauteed Veggies.
You can continue to follow the plan after three days, Dr Hyman told Dr Oz’s audience. Just remember to slowly incorporate other foods back into your diet, choosing good stuff over unhealthy or processed options whenever possible. You can turn to this plan throughout the year to get its results.
