Dr Oz: How To Eat As Much As You Want and Drop Pounds Fast

Dr Oz kicked off the show with his brand new Two Week Weight Loss Diet plan, explaining the foods to eliminate for 14 days. He had his whole audience put it to the test, and they lost an average of nine pounds. But it’s not just about giving things up. Try his diet Breakfast Smoothie Recipe, Hot Lemon Water, and unlimited Low Glycemic Vegetables.

Dr Oz: Hot Lemon Water Diet Tea Recipe

Drink a glass of hot water with 1/2 lemon, which will help you get the body’s digestive processes going at the beginning of the day. It’s a practice passed down from ancient cultures, which believe that lemon is a weight loss aid that cleanses the liver.

Dr Oz: Low Glycemic Vegetables & Two-Week Weight Loss Diet Foods

Dr Oz shared the two-week weight loss diet foods he recommended on the plan for rapid weight loss, including dozens of unlimited low glycemic vegetables.

What’s for breakfast? Dr Oz has a fantastic protein smoothie to keep you full and flush your body with antioxidants. Theresa lost 14 pounds and six inches from her waist on the two-week diet. She demonstrated how to make Dr Oz’s easy breakfast smoothie.


  • 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen Berries
  • 2 tbsp Rice Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp Flaxseed Powder


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend to your preferred consistency.

Dr Oz promised that frozen berries are inexpensive and mean you don’t need ice in this smoothie. Theresa’s tip was to add the flaxseeds last so they are ground up in the smoothie.

Dr Oz Two-Week Weight Loss Diet Foods

The best part is that there are some foods on this diet that you can eat whenever you want during the two-week program.

  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt – This is the only dairy allowed.
  • 6 oz Protein – Chicken, Turkey, or Fish
  • 1/2 cup Brown Rice – Fiber keeps you full longer
  • Organic Green Tea – Replace coffee with organic green tea with catechin
  • Oil & Avocado – Get some good fats in your daily diet
  • Snacks – Enjoy some Nuts, Hummus, or Pickles

Helen lost 22 pounds in two weeks on the diet plan, and she realized that she was far too small for her old belt. She said she enjoyed trying new recipes and combinations of healthy ingredients. She even used the Greek Yogurt as a veggie dip, because she did not care for the plain taste.

“I want this not to be a diet. This is a plan for the rest of your life,” Dr Oz said, encouraging people to stick with the program if it works for them.

Dr Oz: What is Glycogen?

Elizabeth lost eight pounds doing this plan, and she said that she was surprised at how much she enjoyed the new vegetables that she added to her regimen.

The body stores fat and energy in the body. Glycogen is the energy from sugar stored by the liver. Replacing sugar with low glycemic foods causes your body to use up its stored sugar reserves, which then leaves nothing left to burn but fat as an energy source.

Some of Elizabeth’s favorite meals included boiled zucchini with homemade sauce and a healthy French fry substitute made from butternut squash fried in olive oil with spices.

Dr Oz: Add Probiotics & Nutrients To Boost Weight Loss

Add a Probiotic Supplement and nutrients, such as a Multivitamin, to your daily routine to speed up the effects of your weight loss. Make sure you are getting all your needed nutrients.

After two weeks, you can tweak the plan by adding in:

  • Unlimited Protein
  • Unlimited Nuts
  • Sweet Treats like berries after dinner

Try not to go back to eating carbs and other trigger foods, which can put the pounds right back on. You could lose nine pounds in just two weeks. If you try the diet, leave me a comment to let me know how it worked.
