Dr. Oz’s 100 Weight Loss Tips

Here are the next tips from 100 weight loss tips from the Dr. Oz’s show.

 

 


 

  1. Natural applesauce is an excellent dip for fruits such as bananas and melons.
  2. Take every opportunity to move around, even in small ways. Studies show fidgety people tend to be skinnier.
  3. Identify the emotional triggers that lead you to seek unhealthy comfort food. Picture your goal weight the next time a trigger strikes to help you resist temptation.
  4. Use a vegetable bean dip such as hummus instead of ranch dressing or a fatty cream-based dip.
  5. People who regularly weigh themselves and keep track of their progress in a journal are more likely to lose weight.
  6. Use a dash of cinnamon to give fruits such as bananas and melons a richer dessert feel without the sugar.
  7. Give your protein extra low-calorie flavor by adding a salsa or chutney instead of a gooey cream sauce.
  8. Distracted dining will get you in trouble. Avoid eating in front of a television or in a movie theater, as you’re bound to consume more calories.
  9. Pass on pop. You’ll be amazed by how much weight you drop by simply switching to water.
  10. Beware of “fat-free” or “zero trans fats” foods as you could be trading fats for huge amounts of sugar or sodium.
  11. Try drinking skim milk at breakfast instead of juice. Overweight people who drank skim milk for breakfast ate fewer calories
  12. Sugarless chewing gum can suppress your appetite in a pinch.
  13. Snack attack! Puree peaches, berries or pears for a sweet spread to go on pita chips.
  14. If you’re having trouble getting started, make a small move such as starting an eating log or buying walking shoes. You’re three times more likely to follow through if you start with small gestures such as these.
  15. Always have vegetables on hand. Saute a big bag of frozen mixed vegetables in olive oil and garlic. Add some red pepper or turmeric for additional flavor and separate into portion-sized containers for the fridge.
  16. Edamame (soy beans) are a great low-cost snack. Look for them in the frozen foods section.
  17. Soups can be both filling and comforting. Try making a garden or bean soup with low-salt broth and store in portion-sized cups for later.
  18. Save time and money during the week by buying lean protein such as chicken breasts in bulk and cooking a week’s worth on Sunday night.
  19. Save the kitchen and the dining room table for cooking and eating. Try not to use it as a place to do work or other activities, or you may be tempted to eat more.
  20. If food was your only source of pleasure, make sure to reconnect with other things you enjoy — music, sports, volunteer work or movies, for example.
  21. Try to have a little lean protein with each meal, as protein tends to be more satisfying than carbs or fats.
  22. Think ahead to how you’ll eat and exercise on the weekends. It’s easy to get too relaxed on Saturdays and Sundays, but healthy living is a 7-day-a-week endeavor.
  23. Dump the junk food. If you want to avoid temptation, make sure you clean out the fridge and the pantry
  24. When you eat calorie-friendly fruits and vegetables that are in season, they tend to taste better and you’re more likely to enjoy them.
  25. People who eat breakfast have a better shot at losing and maintaining weight loss.
