The Mediterranean style diet allows for a total of 1,450 calories (300 calories for breakfast, 400 for lunch, 500 for dinner, and 125 for each snack). In the magazine, Dr. Oz provides a 7 day sample diet plan, which allows for meal swaps and includes recipes. In addition to the meal plan, Dr. Oz has 5 simple rules to help you lose 10 pounds in a month. These rules include:
- Rule 1: Renew Your Vows Daily

- Rule 3: Set Your Kitchen on Automatic. Arrange your pantry, fridge, and life so your only choices are good ones.
- Rule 4: Keep Your Belly Full
- Rule 5: Extend the Burn
The menu plan includes purchased, ready made foods as well as homemade goodies, and includes one evening with a dine out option.
In the magazine, Dr. Oz busts many popular diet myths, including “I’d like to lose weight but..” and “Starving yourself is the key to losing weight”. He also shares his number 1 diet secret – to always be satiated. Not overfull, but comfortable with the foods you eat.
