Dr Oz: Say Goodbye To Belly Fat
Dr Oz shared a video of several woman admitting that as bad as they want a flat belly, it just hasn’t seemed possible for them. He was thrilled to share that he was going to change the way you battle belly fat forever with the best hacks for a flatter belly. To help share them, he welcomed core team expert Chris Powell.
Chris explained that belly fat is different than fat on the rest of the body because it seems to be a lot more stubborn. It’s caused by a lot more than just over-eating, including stress and inflammation. Fortunately, Chris had specific, simple things you can do every day that over time can help melt away that belly fat for good. Plus, the hacks he’s talking about can help tackle hunger, bloat, dehydration, poor posture, and stress.
Dr Oz: Start Your Day With Muscle Up Oats Recipe
Chris kicked things off with his first hack which is to eat his Muscle Up Oats every day for breakfast. All you need is the following two ingredients
- 1 egg
- 1/2 C oats
Whisk the egg into the oats and cook according to package instructions. This recipe is loaded with fiber and protein to help squash hunger and stabilize blood sugar levels. Additionally, the egg yolk has choline in it which affects lectin levels in the body. When lectin levels go up, our body feels full. Plus, by adding the egg to the oats before you cook them, you actually add more volume to the oats so you feel like you’re eating more. Dr Oz’s go-to tester Rhenotha tried the oats for herself and said it definitely wasn’t bad.
Dr Oz: Dandelion & Bitter Greens Salad With Tarragon-Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe Ingredients
Next, Chris recommended his diuretic salad for lunch to beat bloat.
- 2 C chicory leaves – outer ribs discarded, leaves torn into 2-inch pieces
- 1 medium Belgian endive – sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rings
- 1 small fennel bulb – sliced thin
- 2 C dandelion greens – thick stems trimmed
- 2 C baby arugula
- 1 medium carrot – grated
- 1/4 C chopped parsley
- 1/2 C lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic – minced
- 1/4 C thinly sliced celery
- 1/2 C olive oil
- 2 tbsp chopped tarragon
Dr Oz: Dandelion & Bitter Greens Salad With Tarragon-Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe Directions
- Combine the chicory, dandelion greens, fennel, carrot, endive, celery, and parsley in a large bowl
- For the vinaigrette, put the olive oil, tarragon, lemon juice, and garlic in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid
- Shake together until well-combined
- Toss together a serving of greens with the dressing to lightly coat the leaves
- Top with beans, cucumbers, or cheese if desired then serve right away
According to Chris, the average American consumes way too much sodium each day, around 3,400 milligrams. That’s exactly why he loves a diuretic salad to help flush out a lot of those toxins causing bloating. Plus the low-sodium lemon vinaigrette makes for a combination your belly will love.
Dr Oz: 10 Gulp Rule For Proper Hydration
Next, Chris revealed his 10 Gulp Rule, because hydration is so important. He recommends getting at least half your body weight in ounces of water every day. Most of us are actually dehydrated without even realizing it, which is why he suggested that every time you bring a bottle of water to your lips for a drink, you take ten gulps before putting it back down. They don’t have to be ridiculously-sized gulps, but just think ten “swallows.”
Fortunately, Chris also has a hack for helping reduce stress. To get your cortisol levels back down, stop, stand up, and tighten every muscle in your body for five seconds, then release them all. Repeat that three times and be amazed at how good it feels.
For the last type, Dr Oz welcomed Chris’s wife Heidi…
Dr Oz: The Only Ab Exercise You Need For A Flat Belly
Heidi shared a video of herself performing an exercise that went viral on social media with 1.5 million hits. It’s called the vacuum with the twist and Heidi claims it’s the only ab exercise she does. She says after four babies it’s the one exercise responsible for her toned stomach. This exercise in particular works her rectus abdominus, or the muscles underneath your “six pack.” Just breathe in deep, exhale all the air out and then pull your stomach in tight while you twist your abdomen. Do 5 sets of 20 twists every day for a tighter, toned tummy.
