If you are looking to kick start a new weight loss routine or conquer a diet plateau, try Dr. Oz’s new two-week rapid weight-loss plan. By loading up on healthy food, like low-glycemic vegetables and small portions of protein, you can help curb your cravings and give your body a healthy start to the year. Plus, all of the meals can be automated and prepped, so you can drop pounds without spending a ton of time in the kitchen doing prep work. Read on to find out all the details!
What You Can Eat
Wake up: Start day with cup hot water and 1/2 lemon Breakfast smoothie: Use this recipe. Green tea: Preferably organic Protein: One 6-oz serving of meat (chicken, turkey or fish) per day Carbs: 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice a day (otherwise no carbs/starches) Fats: Good fats in moderation (e.g. olive oil and avocado) Dairy: 1 cup of 2% plain Greek yogurt per day (otherwise no dairy) Vegetables: Unlimited low-glycemic vegetables (see list) and Detox Broth (recipe here) Snacks: Hummus, pickles, a couple handfuls of nuts
• No wheat (except 1/2 cup brown rice) • No artificial sweeteners (this includes all diet soda) • No white sugar • No alcohol • No caffeine (only green tea) • No dairy (except Greek yogurt) • No additional exercise • No meals between 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Other Things to Do
While on the plan, make sure you do the following every day.
• Take probiotic in the morning. • Take a multivitamin (preferably 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 at night). • Take a detox bath every night (soak with 2 cups Epsom salt & 1 cup baking soda).
On this plan, you can eat all the low-glycemic veggies you want. Not only will they help you stay full, but they are key to helping burn fat. When you swap out starchy and sugary foods for low-glycemic vegetables, your body can burn through its glycogen storage and eventually start burning fat.
