-Bagged salad greens (darker greens have more vitamins)
*Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
*Amy’s Organic Buttermilk Dressing
Mix the salads by adding the dressings to the salad. Close the container and shake up. If extra dressing is left on the bottom, it means you have too much dressing on your salad. (Add more salad to it—remember, the darker greens.)
-Steam in the bag veggies- This is better than frozen veggies because steaming locks in the nutrients.
Dr Oz: Pacific Organic Butternut Squash Soup
-Soups- Soups will satiate you and keep you fuller for longer
*Pacific Organic Butternut Squash (check sodium levels to make sure it is under 600mg)
Dr Oz: Diet Results
Dr Oz asked 2 women to start eating the diet for 5 days and at the end of the day 5, they would go to The Truth Tube for their results.
Tracy, the first audience member who tried the diet, told Dr Oz that she loved it. For her, it was easy and it was good for her family. Out of all the dishes, the salmon was her favorite and she wasn’t even a salmon lover.
Kim, another audience member who tried the diet, told Dr oz that she like the salmon burger but, for her, the burrito was top notch. To go along with the diet, she added veggies and salad to help keep her full.
Both women stated that during this diet, they didn’t feel hungry or deprived, which is important because it keeps you from overeating.
The Truth Tube: Tracey
Weight before: 159 lbs
Weight after: 157 lbs.
Dr Oz says if she keeps doing this for a month, she’ll drop 10 lbs.
The Truth Tube: Kim
Weight before: 235 lbs
Weight after: 230 lbs
Dr Oz reassured that the minute you start losing weight, your body will begin to behave differently, thinking you’re thin already. (Sounds like a plan to me!)
