Dr Oz: Superfat Diet Secrets
Here are the five superfats and explanations about how they help you lose weight.
Olives build leaner body mass, which helps burn fat. Plus, they’re filling, which can keep you from eating other things that aren’t as good for you.
Canola Oil is lowest in saturated fat among cooking oils, and has half the fat of Olive Oil. It’s flavorless, so it won’t affect the taste of food.
Avocado is creamy and rich, but without the saturated fat. You can use it as a replacement for mayonnaise on sandwiches, and one cup of it has 40% of your recommended daily fiber.
Pistachios are a great weight loss booster. They’re full of Linoleic Acid to fuel the body’s metabolism.
Salmon is full of healthy Omega 3 Fatty Acids to burn belly fat. It’s an affordable, versatile protein.
