Dr. Oz's 2-Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet: Lose 10 pounds before Memorial Day
By Joanne Eglash on April 30, 2014
If you're saying "May Day" about your body, Dr. Mehmet Oz has the solution: His new 2-Week Rapid Weight Loss diet is designed to help you lose 10 pounds before Memorial Day.
How it works: For each meal, eat 80 percent low-glycemic vegetables and 20 percent protein and healthy fats. You'll stay full while shedding pounds quickly. Enjoy three snacks daily, with each one containing protein and fresh produce, such as sliced fresh peaches spread with almond butter. Tip: To keep it simple at work, take whole fresh fruit and snack packs of Barney Butter Almond Butter 90 Calorie Snack Packs (click for details).
In addition, take a B complex vitamin daily, which Dr. Oz says boosts your metabolism. Choose a brand without added sugar or other ingredients, such as Nature Made Super B Complex Tablets.
The breakfast smoothie below plays a key role in succeeding on this diet: It kick-starts your weight loss each day while satisfying your hunger and suppressing cravings.
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1/2 cup frozen berries
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (Note: Read the label carefully, as many brands of almond milk contain added sugar. We recommend Pacific Natural Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Beverage, Vanilla.)
Blend all ingredients together until you achieve the desired consistency.
