Dr Oz: Reducing Belly Fat With Food

Dr. Oz went over some food and drink, like red wine, that can boost your metabolism and help you lose that stubborn belly fat. He also went over a supplement he called the most important supplement to remember from the show. If Dr. Oz is saying it is important, than you know the supplement works.

Wet Foods Fight Belly Bloat

Dr. Oz said one of the biggest complaints he gets from women is that their bellies feel bloated all the time, sometimes so much so that other people think they are pregnant. Dr. Oz said the key to beating belly bloat is eating more wet foods.

Dietitian Ashley Koff explained that wet foods have two characteristics which are a high water and fiber content. All wet foods should contain 70 percent water and at least five grams of fiber, a winning combination to slim down on belly fat.

Ashley Koff says eating a lot of fiber can actually make you feel more bloated which is why you must drink water. If you only eat lots of fiber without any water, you are going to begin bloating more than you were before. Check out her wet taco recipe below to find out how to get a good amount of fiber and water.

  • 1 teaspoon taco spice blend
  • 3 large leaves of romaine lettuce

  • In a medium sized bowl, gently toss the pinto beans, green pepper, tomato and taco spice blend.
  • Lay the lettuce leaves in a shallow soup bowl or on a plate. Spread the bean mixture evenly among the lettuces leaves. Top each with the cabbage, salsa and guacamole.

About the author

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Journalism and Anthropology, I managed a pizza place for a year, while freelancing for various newspapers in the area. Working every weekend in sauna like conditions, never being able to take a day off and being covered in flour is something I will not miss. I hope Recapo has air conditioning.
