Dr Oz: Holiday Detox
A lot of people tend to overdo it on the revelry at the holidays, which is why it’s a good thing that Dr Oz came up with a 2-Day Holiday Detox to help you avoid weight gain with whole foods.
Dr Oz: Holiday Detox to Rid Bloat
What is your Holiday Kryptonite? There are some things we can just not say no to. Whatever your weakness is, Dr Oz had a solution to help you stop retaining excess water so you don’t have to feel bloated until the New Year.
Dr Oz: Fast Flush Water Recipe
Choose your favorite melon for this easy flushing drink. Most melons are 92% water, so whatever you pick will be a good choice.
- 3 cups Melon
- 2 cups Water
- 1 cup Coconut Water
Blend these ingredients together for the potassium benefits and to flush away excess sodium. Drink five cups per day to keep yourself hydrated.
Dr Oz Detox Breakfast: Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Did you know that oatmeal can be a diuretic? Dr Oz said you should put peanut butter in your oatmeal. The niacin in peanut butter will detox you and help settle your stomach.
Why do you want a diuretic? By promoting the function of the kidneys, you won’t feel bloated, so you will look better on the outside as well as feeling better on the inside. That sounds like a win-win combination.
Dr Oz: Holiday Detox To Rebalance Blood Sugar
A lot of us (Dr Oz included) love eggnog during the holiday season. I like to use it instead of milk in my coffee. However, this is a high glycemic beverage, so Dr Oz proposed a solution to rebalance blood sugar.
Dr Oz: Detox Lentil Soup Recipe
A liquid lunch, this Detox Lentil Soup has a low glycemic index, and it will help to balance the body’s blood sugar levels.
- 1 cup Lentils
- 1/2 Onion
- 1/2 cup Celery
- 3 cups Chicken Broth
- 1 cup Tomatoes
Combine these ingredients and simmer them together before serving hot.
Dr Oz: Blood Sugar Regulation
Regulating your blood sugar prevents spikes and crashes that can throw your whole life off balance. This can keep you from crashing, and maintaining a good blood sugar can keep you from feeling hungry all the time. Consuming liquid makes it easier on your digestive system to break things down.
Dr Oz: Holiday Detox to Remove Fat Toxins
For those who love chocolate cake (or just chocolate), the bad news is that you could have extra toxins in the body from all those high sugar foods. What can you do about this? Here’s what’s for dinner.
Dr Oz: Protein-Packed Cabbage Salad Recipe
- 2 cups Purple Cabbage
- 1 oz Pumpkin Seeds
- 1 Chicken Breast
- 1 Orange
- 3 tsp Olive Oil
- Cook the chicken breast.
- Toss in olive oil with orange slices, cabbage, and pumpkin seeds.
This naturally helps to remove toxins from the body. The insoluble fiber helps to keep your intestines cleaned out and functioning well.
Dr Oz: Holiday Detox to Recharge Metabolism
Mallomars are a popular cookie you can only find around the holidays. As an alternative to these snack cakes, Dr Oz recommended Chocolate Tea.
Chocolate Tea boosts the metabolism with a satisfying taste. It is low in calories and caffeine, so you might want to give this one a try. Have it as a snack or after dinner.

- Breakfast – Peanut Butter Oatmeal
