Dr. Oz, the popular American TV show host has recently come up with a new weight loss plan that can help you lose a ton of weight in just a few weeks. After recommending it to a few people dealing weight extreme weight gain, the results have been incredible – all the participants managed to lose an average of 9 pounds in just 2 weeks.
Besides helping you lose weight, the diet will also reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, food sensitivities and chronic pain. “The 2 Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet will definitely help you lose weight and give your overall health a boost,” Dr. Oz says.
The diet has 4 phases in total which should be followed strictly. Here’s what you need to do:
Phase 1 – Eliminate The Foods Making You Sick
Dr. Oz says that eliminating wheat from your diet is the hardest step. However, it is an important one as it removes gluten from your diet. Gluten is a protein found in wheat which many people are sensitive to. Gluten can raise inflammation in your gut and cause numerous problems including weight gain.
Refined Sugar And Alcohol
Both alcohol and refined sugar are your enemies if you want to lose weight. They are both addictive and hard to get rid of, but if you want to slim down, you must get rid of them.
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame will not only make you gain weight – they also raise the risk of cancer. Dr. Oz recommends switching to natural sweeteners instead in order to keep your health in check.
We’re sorry, coffee lovers – your favorite beverage needs to go if you want to slim down. This goes especially for those coffees with cream which are nothing more but empty calories.
Dairy is the main source of inflammation and food allergies, so staying away from these products makes perfect sense if you want to lose weight.
Phase 2 – Add Low Glycemic Foods In Your Diet
Warm Lemon Water
Starting your day with a glass of warm lemon water will clean your liver of toxins and boost your digestion and metabolism.
Instead of eating a meal for breakfast, have a protein smoothie. It will keep your going for hours and provide your body with a variety of essential nutrients that will improve your overall health. Here’s a nice recipe:
½ a cup frozen berries
A cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
½ a banana
2 tablespoons flaxseed
2 tablespoons protein powder
It’s simple – mix everything in a blender and enjoy the smoothie.
Avoid Eating Snacks
The only snacks you’re allowed to consume if you want to lose weight are Greek yogurt, brown rice, pickles, humus, green tea and avocado.
Phase 3 – Probiotic Supplements
Adding probiotic supplements into your diet will keep your metabolism active and restore your beneficial gut flora, effectively helping you lose weight.
Phase 4 – Protein
The final step is to add more protein in your diet. Protein will make your muscles grow and help the body burn fat, so it’s essential for the process of losing weight. You can find protein in eggs, lean meat, nuts and seeds, berries and many other foods.
