Dr Oz has been pushing us to lose 10 pounds this year with the Dr Oz Just 10 Health Challenge, but research shows that this time of the year is responsible for most of our weight gain. So Doctor Oz and Dr Roizen put together a Holiday Survival Plan called the Just 10 Holiday Diet with Dr Roizen.
Dr Oz: Just 10 Holiday Diet Plan
Dr Roizen told Dr Oz that it is pure BS (Bad Science) when people say that they cannot diet at the same time that they enjoy the holidays. Here is how to avoid gaining weight and maybe even lose weight during the holidays:
Dr Oz Holiday Survival Plan: Endless Parties & Family Gatherings
Rule 1. Prepare a Pre-Party Pack
Have some nuts and low fat string cheese on the way to your party, so that way you will not be starving at the party.
Rule 2: No Stacking Your Plate
Take a small plate instead of a large plate, and make sure that none of your food is touching – this way you know you are not stacking food.
Rule 3: 100 Calorie Cocktails
Dr Roizen told Dr Oz that a glass of eggnog can have 450 calories, so instead drink some straight vodka on ice or whiskey on ice. Another great tip from Dr Roizen is that you can have 2 wine spritzers for 100 calories, because you diluting the wine with sparkling water.
Dr Oz Holiday Survival Plan: Sweets, Cookies and Cakes
Rule 1: Buy It, Don’t Bake It
You should buy sweets right before going to a party, because otherwise you will be tempted to snack on it all day long.
Rule 2: Eye Your Pie
Look over all of the desserts before you pick one, and then just eat a small piece of the one you like best. Dr Roizen said that pumpkin pie is great for men.
Dr Oz Holiday Survival Plan: Eating Out While Shopping
Rule 1: Eat Before You Shop
Dr Roizen said that you should only shop on a full stomach. Or if you absolutely must, then split a piece of pizza with a friend or have a salad with vinegar only.
Rule 2: Pack Your Snacks
Pack in little ziploc baggies trail mix or dark chocolate pieces wrapped in bright colored foil.

Rule 2: Write Down What You Eat At Parties
