Drs: Apple & Cinnamon “Risotto” With Oat Bran & Almonds


The Doctors: Spices & Negative Calorie Foods

Rocco Dispirito knows that a few spices can boost your metabolism and even provide a few health benefits. Cayenne pepper can boost fat burning up to 25% which is why he tries to use it everywhere he can, including pasta and pizza! He also really likes turmeric which is “nature’s greatest anti-inflammatory.” He loves to grate it into hot water with some fresh honey to drink as a tea! As great as spices are, perhaps the best thing for your body is water! For every 1 ounce of water you drink, you burn three calories. That’s why eating foods high in fiber and water content are great for your health as well as your waistline!


Instead of focusing on calories, try consuming more negative or zero-calorie foods like mango! Rocco is all about the negative calorie diet and shared a few meal ideas, including a shaved Brussels sprouts salad and a dish that uses sliced chicken instead of pasta! If you ask me, his best recipe was an Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast “Risotto” with Oat Bran & Almonds. To get the recipe, click next page!
