Dr Oz: Total 10 Shopping Guide
Dr Oz proudly unveiled the Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Plan on his show recently. Since there is so much to talk about, he explained even more about how to tackle shopping for this diet program. He teamed up with viewer Danielle, who lost 38 pounds on the plan.
As a married mother of four, Danielle has incorporated the diet plan into her family’s routine. Her strategies include buying seasonal produce and shopping around for sales.
Dr Oz: How To Shop for Vegetables
One great aspect of this diet program is that you are allowed unlimited amounts of non-starchy vegetables. That means you can go on a shopping spree in the produce section of the grocery store or at a farmer’s market.
Danielle started out by buying every vegetable on the list, but she soon realized that was not sustainable. There are many options, so try to limit the scope of your shopping to what you know you or your family will enjoy eating.
Dr Oz: Bulk Meals Preparation & Storage
For her family, Danielle tends to stock up on Artichokes, Brussels Sprouts, Celery, Garbanzo Beans, and Red Peppers. She uses vacuum-sealable bags and airtight storage containers to keep things fresh longer.
Danielle also said she prepares most of her meals on Sundays and Wednesdays, making it easy to get dinner on the table during the rest of the week without resorting to processed foods.
Dr Oz: What Protein Should I Eat?
The Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Plan includes 12 ounces of Protein every day. Poultry and Fish are great protein sources. Eggs contain one ounce of Protein each, which can be a good value.
Danielle said she sticks to Chicken and White Fish for her protein, though her family also enjoys red meat. Once each week, Danielle buys chicken and cooks it ahead. But for fish, she makes that to order each time she wants it.
Dr Oz: Healthy Fats for Weight Loss
Dr Oz’s grocery list includes essential items in categories other than vegetables and proteins. There are healthy fats on the list, such as Almond Butter, Avocado, Coconut Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Nuts and Olive Oil.
Dairy is limited, but you could use unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk with coffee or a smoothie in the morning. Fruit is also limited on the plan, but Lemon is great for hot water in the morning, while Apples, Bananas, and Berries can be fabulous smoothie ingredients.
Dr Oz Weight Loss Essentials: Protein Powder & Snacks
Look for Whey Protein Powder or Egg White Protein Powder for morning smoothies. Grains on this diet program are limited to 1/2 cup of Quinoa.
You can enjoy 6 oz of plain 2% Greek Yogurt during the day. Also stock up on Hummus, Pickles, low-sodium Turkey Jerky, and low-sodium Vegetable Broth.
If you need help satisfying your sweet tooth, shop for all-natural Cocoa Powder, organic canned Pumpkin, and Stevia.
