Dr. Oz Diet Soda Will Not Help Get The Weight Off: Dr. Oz says diet soda will not help you to lose the weight, our body gets “tricked” by the sugar substitute, we will crave more food and become susceptible to overeating in order to feel satisfied. This leads to us feeling even hungrier and not too full, which can lead to weight gain. Try drinking seltzer water with a little lemon juice. Dr Oz Soda Addiction 28 Day Challenge
Dr. Oz The More Calories You Cut, the More Weight You Lose: It’s a Myth. It is fine to cut 500 calories a day from your diet, this equals 3500 calories per week which means you can lose 1 pound a week. If you cut more than 500 calories your body will think it is in starvation mode. Never put your body into “starvation mode” it prevents your body from burning unwanted fat. The body will then get some of it calories from lean muscle which will result in muscle loss. Less muscle means a slower metabolic rate and stalled weight loss.
Dr. Oz Pasta Makes You Fat: MYTH!Pasta does not make you pack on the pounds- Dr. Oz said it’s not the pasta that is making us fat. Whether it is bread, pasta or rice eat it in moderation. It is the extra portions we indulge in and the creamy sauces and cheese topping that are the problem. Two or three ounces of uncooked noodles per person is Dietitian recommended.
Dr. Oz Eating After 8 p.m. Will Make You Put on Weight: Dr. Oz doesn’t recommend eating after 8 p.m. because studies have shown that we are more likely to overeat and misjudge how many calories you consume when you eat late. Eating too much of the wrong foods could cause one to put on weight.
Dr. Oz said it’s not the time of day that makes us gain weight – it’s all the extra calories we shove into us. It’s not a matter of when you consume the calories – it’s the number of calories you consume in the run of a day, what you don’t burn will be stored as fat.
Dr. Oz Reduced Fat Foods & Fat Free Foods Are Healthier Alternatives: MYTH! Dr. Oz has told us numerous times about low fat foods — “low-fat” and “fat-free” doesn’t mean low-calorie. Too many of believe that low fat & fat free foods are a healthier alternative and you are getting fewer calories and it just isn’t truth. When the fat is removed there are substations added to the food product to make it taste good.(People are always sucked into buying Low Fat Salad Dressings) If they removed the fat and didn’t replace it with sugar, thickeners & chemicals you wouldn’t buy it let alone eat it.
Dr. Oz Oz used regular fat peanut butter as an example – 2 TBS of peanut putter has 190 calories. Reduced fat peanut butter has 190 calories because it has twice the amount of carbohydrates and contains hydrogenated vegetables oils(Trans Fats – artery clogging fats). Stay with the regular peanut butter. Say good-bye to the low fat & fat free products, I never did buy into in the first place!
Dr. Oz says to think twice about bringing reduced fat foods into your home. Opt for fresh or whole foods – or buy the full-fat food instead, just be sure to eat in moderation.
