Dr. Oz YOU On A Diet
Oprah's favorite doctor with a healthy weight loss plan.
YOU: On A Diet was written by Drs. Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen to help people identify a realistic approach to slimming their waistline, and not necessarily losing weight. By explaining ordinary body functions and processes, they teach you how everything you put inside your body affects those functions. And when the right balance of food and exercise are found, you'll realize noticeable changes in your body and health.
A few key takeaways from YOU: On A Diet include: - Forget the scale, waist size is a much more important measure of health - Body chemistry rules over will-power - Walk every single day - Clean out your fridge, and start fresh
- Endorsed by Oprah
- Authors are well-respected experts in the field

- Teaches you about the food/body relationship
- Diet is flexible
- Encourages monotony in food rotation

You'll start YOU: On A Diet by cleaning out your pantry and refrigerator. It's likely most of the items in there aren't going to be up to par for Drs. Oz and Roizen. Over-processed foods, those containing high fructose corn syrup, anything that says hydrogenated, trans-fats and other food ingredients that do more harm than good have to go immediately. You'll replace them with whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and healthy fats.
YOU provides meal plans that include breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks. None of them require a lot of time to prepare. Some easy food rules to live by from YOU: On A Diet include:
- Keep healthy snacks at arm's reach, you never know when you'll get hungry
- Stop eating three hours prior to bed
- Eat until you're full, don't go past it
- Manage portion size by using a 9" plate
- Save dessert for every-other-day
There are a lot of recipes included in the book. You'll also receive guidance for reading and understanding food labels, as well as eating out.EXERCISE
You're encouraged to walk every single day for half an hour. Following your walk you should do about five minutes worth of stretching. You also need to do the 20-minute workouts three times a week. Details for these are included in the book and on the website and available for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of expertise.CONCLUSION
This is probably one of the most exciting lifestyle programs to hit the market in recent memory. Drs. Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen have completely thrown out the window the melancholy and disappointing approach to weight loss and healthy living. Their book is funny and quite an enjoyable read. They breakdown complex scientific principles and explain them so that you completely understand why you can and can't eat certain things. Best of all, they've introduced their "waist-loss" approach, explaining how the size of your waist is far more indicative of your health than a constantly changing number on the scale. Oprah and thousands of other fans have jumped on board the YOU: On A Diet fan train, and you shouldn't be disappointed if you join, too.Common Misspellings
