Dr Oz: 99 Diet Foods
Dr Oz is always recommending food ideas and healthy options on his show, but now he has gone one step further and put together the Dr Oz 99 Diet Foods Grocery List. Some foods in supermarkets claim they have dietary benefits, but the wrong ingredients could have the opposite effects on your waistline and your diet results. That’s why Dr Oz shared his thoughts about packaged diet foods, sharing an Amy’s Burritos Giveaway and daily meal plans with items such as Kashi Thick Crust Pesto Pizza.

Dr Oz Salad Dressing: Newman’s Own & Annie’s Organic
Dr Oz also recommended some side dishes, including bagged salad greens. He said darker varieties have more vitamins. Steaming vegetables in the bag locks in nutrients and is the best option for frozen veggies. Here are the salad dressings featured in this segment.
You can easily toss a salad on the go by shaking up dressing and greens in a container with a lid. If there’s extra dressing in the bottom of your container, you are using too much.
Dr Oz: Pacific Organic Butternut Squash Soup Review
Dr Oz said that soups are known to fill you up and keep you satisfied, which I guess is why people call them a hearty meal. He suggested the Pacific Organic Butternut Squash soup. When picking a soup, check the sodium and look for an option that has 600 mg of Sodium or less per serving.

Dr Oz put two viewers to the test on this five day meal plan. Tracy told him she loved the diet, which worked out well for her family. She even liked the salmon, which surprised her.
Kim said her favorite diet meal on the plan was the burrito. She supplemented the meals with vegetables and salad. The women agreed that this diet kept them feeling full and satisfied, not deprived.
