Dr. Oz had three nurses on his show all who help deliver babies: Paula, Holly and Tina. See if you relate to any of these women… Paula is the “On-The-Run Eater” who grabs things to eat while working and running around… Holly is the “Snacker” who munches on pretzels, chips, soda, and other vending machine foods… and Tina is the “Stress Eater” who eats because she is stressed out. Among Tina’s favorite stress foods are doughnuts, cookies, and soda. Tina has a 5 year old daughter who she is worried is turning out just like her. If you relate to any of these women, then you should really give Dr. Oz’s Six Pack Meal Plan a try!
The Six Pack Meal Plan:
You should eat six meals, one every two hours, which works very well for busy people on the go. Here are what your six meals should consist of.
Meal 1: Protein – This meal can include items like greek yogurt, beans, fish, nuts, lean meats and salmon.
Meal 2: Healthy Fats – Include items like canned salmon, olives, seeds, avocados, and walnuts.
Meal 3: Whole Grains – This meal should be made of items like wild rice, whole wheat bagel with lowfat cream cheese, popcorn, oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheat bread, crackers or pasta.
Meal 4: Fiber – Eat things like nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, peas, and whole grains for this meal.
Meal 5: Metabolism Booster – A salad with hot green peppers is the perfect metabolism booster meal.
Meal 6: Healthy Sweets – My personal favorite, you can have some dark chocolate or try Dr. Oz’s quinoa fruit pudding!
Dr. Oz also introduced the nurses to Bonnie Archer, the charge nurse at Columbia who taught Dr. Oz when he was an intern. Bonnie says that the nurses should eat within the first three hours of their shift, they should go to the bathroom on a different floor, they should not accept snacks or food gifts from patients and that they need to love themselves first! Dr. Oz also put the nurses on vitamin D and multivitamins, told them to weigh in once a week, and gave them a 3 month membership to Gold’s Gym with their own trainer once a week.
The truth tube results for the three nurses are: Paula weighs 214 pounds with a blood pressure of 165/110; Holly weighs 260 pounds with a BMI of 40; and Tina weighs 260 pounds, has a 50.5″ waist, and a healthy HDL cholesterol of 39 (one of the biggest risk factors for heart disease). We wish Holly, Paula and Tina the best of luck and can’t wait to see their results!!!
