We each need sometimes to seek inspiration. Moreover, for each of us, there are different sources of inspiration: somebody gets motivation after reading books, someone has the strength to move on after communicating with other people. Elvis Duran had the same situation. In one of his interviews, he admitted that Mehmet Oz. inspired him. The radio host advises paying attention to it because with the help of the rules of this diet he was able to lose 140 pounds (!). Just look at his latest photos: the result is noticeable.

Dr. Mehmet Oz is not just a TV presenter and author of several bestsellers about health. He is a real doctor with a doctoral degree, formerly he was the head of the Department of Surgery at Columbia University and a professor at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Recognized as a physician of the year by New York Magazine. The author of the fast-moving diet of Dr. Oz.
Therefore, his advice is based on many years of practice and knowledge of the principles of the functioning of the human body.
The concept of such a diet is as follows: any person, who follows the correct diet, using products that regulate estrogen levels, eliminates any possible causes of hormonal imbalance. Hormones control all the functions of our body. Any disturbances or excess hormones lead to serious consequences.
So, let’s look at the key aspects of Dr. Oz’s diet.
Exclude 5 elements from your regular diet
One of the first things you should do is to clean your diet. To lose weight, the doctor advises you to exclude 5 elements from your diet: refined sugar, syrups (sources of which are corn, tapioca, white rice, chocolate, and maple), white flour, as well as saturated fats and trans fats.
Inclusion of healthy foods in the diet
After you are done with the harmful elements of the diet, you need to replenish it with healthy products.
Fresh and frozen vegetables, whole grains (oatmeal, brown and wild rice, quinoa), fruits with a low glycemic index (apples, kiwi, berries), as well as lean bird, fish, eggs and Greek yogurt (i.e. low-fat protein).
Also, eat raw nuts, seeds, legumes, and unsweetened almond or soy milk.
Minus 100 Calories
As a next step, Dr. Oz recommends cutting back on 100 kcal.
Making it is easier than you think!
It is only necessary to limit yourself instead of 2-3 slices of dark chocolate to one and add unsweetened almond milk to your usual latte or coffee instead of 2 percent cow’s milk.
Very easy, right?
Cooking in advance
One of the most important components of successful weight loss is cooking in advance.
In other words, you must prepare your meals in advance and eat them every day.
So you will avoid the risk of snacking on junk food because there were no dietary products ready at hand.
Serving Size Reduction
Many people eat from plates 30 cm in diameter, which leads to unconscious overeating.
To reduce the amount of food you eat, use small dishes (about 20 cm in diameter).
You will notice that the calorie content of the diet has decreased, and the feeling of fullness is achieved in very small portions.
Do not forget about snacks
Food for snacks needs to be prepared so that it can be stored in a bag and, thus, able to have a snack on the go.
An excellent option here is foods high in protein, fiber and healthy fats, such as almonds (100 grams), carrots, celery or a jar of Greek yogurt.
Searching for like-minded person
Try to find a like-minded person who will follow a diet with you.
According to Dr. Oz, this will help you stay motivated and not give up in moments of weakness.
Fight with your weaknesses
The doctor also warns that there will be times when, during stress or banal boredom, you are tempted to eat something non-dietary.
During such periods, he advises taking a few deep breaths, eating a healthy product, and reflecting on why you are on a diet.
Use of spices
Spicy foods help you forget about sugary foods, so Dr. Oz advises seasoning dishes with mustard, cayenne, red or Chilean pepper, and other healthy spices.
Of course, do not forget about moderation! Just add some piquancy to your dishes with these products.
Dr. Oz encourages everyone to consult a doctor: to check blood pressure, waist, weight, and cholesterol.
That is, you must make sure that there are no contraindications.
Using a pedometer
Finally, the doctor recommends having a pedometer with you, as you need to make sure that you go through 10,000 steps daily.
This will not only help reduce waist size but also reduce stress, increase flexibility and even improve appetite.
