Dr Oz’s top 5 metabolism boosting tips
On the Dr Oz Show this week, Dr Oz revealed his top metabolism boosters for speedy weight loss. If you feel exhausted and can’t seem to lose weight, you’re not alone. But you can kick start your metabolism and enjoy weight loss with his five step diet plan:
1. Meatless Mondays
Avoiding meat on Mondays is a great way to give your digestive system a break and add more vegetables to your diet. You don’t need to give up meat completely, just one day a week.
2. Enjoy ‘Twos-days’
On Tuesdays, eat a snack that combines iron with vitamin C to improve mood and increase energy – such as sunflower seeds (high in iron) with chilli powder (rich in vitamin C).
3. Wheat-less Wednesdays
Many people are unaware that they have gluten sensitivity, so eliminating wheat from your diet one day a week can make a noticeable difference to your energy levels.
4. Thirsty Thursdays
Detoxing your body with pomegranate juice is an excellent way to flush toxins from your system. Pomegranate juice also protects you against free radicals and restores collagen to your skin.
5. Fatty Fridays
Adding healthy fatty acids like monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) to your diet helps you lose weight, flushes fat from your body, and reduces inflammation. Foods high in MUFAs include avocados, coconut oil, salmon, dark chocolate, and flax seeds.
Try switching your diet
Celebrity nutritionist Haylie Pomroy, author of The Fast Metabolism Diet, says you can rev up your metabolism and accelerate weight loss by switching up your diet every two or three days. This confuses your body so it burns more calories. Pomroy’s clients include Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr, and Jennifer Lopez.
Haylie says the biggest mistake a dieter can make is to starve themselves, which only ends up slowing down your metabolism, resulting in minimal or stalled weight loss.
