Dr Oz: How Your Closet Affects Your Diet
While on the topic of de-cluttering your home, Dr Oz revealed that he was told if you open any woman’s closet, you’ll find four sizes of clothing. Why? Because of yo-yo dieting. Fortunately, Dr Oz was ready to help women get rid of some of their closet clutter with his 40 day 40 thing throw-away challenge. Tia Brown explained that a variety of sizes of clothing can actually sabotage a healthy diet. They can give you excuses to make bad choices or in the case of the smaller sizes, make you feel less confident. Instead, you should zero in on a realistic size that you can maintain without yo-yo dieting, and focus on having clothes that size.
Dr Oz: Are Your Clothes Making You Fat?
Dr Oz turned to Katherine, who admitted to being a lifelong yo-yo dieter. She has gone from a size 10 to a size four, back to a 10, then to a size six. She explained that it’s comforting for her because she’s always known that she has sizes that accommodate her body no matter her size.
Tia first wanted her to accept that she was beautiful no matter her size, and suggested she develop a healthy habit. Secondly, it’s about changing your habits and getting a consistent habit going. Tia suggested you toss the clothes that are too small and too big, and instead focus on what is working right now. You can get rid of clutter while helping to create a healthier lifestyle you can maintain.
Dr Oz: How To De-Clutter Your Closet
First get rid of anything that is several sizes different than your current size, clothing you haven’t worn in the last year, ripped sweat pants, and any stained or holey undershirts. It may be a good idea to get rid of clothes like yoga pants or other comfortable t-shirts because they stretch to accommodate weight gain, giving you an excuse to get a little too comfortable. A proper wardrobe has the ability to hold you accountable.
Katherine then, hilariously, had a funeral for her old clothes that she was throwing out of her closet, complete with well wishes from Dr Oz.
