Dr. Oz came up with a weight loss diet plan that has helped a lot of people lose around 9 pounds in just as short as a couple of weeks. And, what is even better, the diet plan, which he calls the “Total 10 Rapid Weight-Loss Plan,” promises weight loss without the need to sweat yourself through exercise activities.
According to a report from the ET Online, the diet plan from Dr. Oz helps in triggering off an individual’s very own hormones to fight the fats inside the body. “I actually think it’s wise to periodically take a large carb load in, because it reminds your hormones that you’re not in a starvation mode, so it’ll relax those hormones so they keep your metabolism pretty high,” Dr. Oz, who also served as a health expert on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” told ET. “So every couple days you actually should go out and have a great time. Listen, at the end of the day, life’s about enjoying it.”
For those interested, Celebrity Health and Fitness listed the steps involved in Dr. Oz’s Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Diet Plan:
Drink a cup of hot water with lemon first thing in the morning, as this has been shown to remove toxins and jump-start weight loss and have a protein-rich smoothie for breakfast. One recipe for a breakfast smoothie includes ingredients such as: 1 cup almond milk, 2 tablespoons protein powder, 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil, ½ cup frozen banana, ½ cup berries and ½ cup ice.
Eat three high-protein meals a day. Protein-rich meals suppress appetite and boost metabolism. Dr. Oz suggested centering your meals around poultry, fish or eggs, ideally getting 12 grams of protein a day.
Consume the Total 10 veggie broth throughout the day. It’s low-calorie, high-fiber and curbs hunger. Dr. Oz’s Total 10 broth recipe ingredients are 3 quarts of water, 1 onion, 1 cup winter squash, 1 cup root vegetables, 1 cup greens, 2 celery sticks, ½ cup cabbage, 4 slices ginger, 2 garlic cloves and sea salt.
You can enjoy unlimited amounts of low glycemic vegetables such as: Artichokes, asparagus, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, squash, snap peas, broccoli, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, celery, cucumber, daikon, eggplant, leeks, lentils, beans, greens, okra, onions, radishes, rutabaga, Swiss chard, zucchini, salad greens, water chestnuts, watercress and peppers.
Avoid or limit wheat, artificial sweeteners, alcohol, dairy, processed foods and refined sugar. These foods cause inflammation, which fuel weight gain and disease.
You can have one cup of coffee a day. Dr. Oz suggested using almond milk as a sweetener.
