Dr Oz: 21 Day Weight Loss Plan
Dr Oz introduced his 21 Day Weight Loss Breakthrough plan, that’s based on plant-based protein and unlimited non-starchy vegetables. Science has said that people who eat that way lose more weight, feel more energized, and reduce their risk for chronic disease. You start your day with avocado toast and oolong tea. So what’s for lunch and dinner? Well it turns out, you’re not stuck only eating salads.
Dr Oz welcomed Elline who lost 14 pounds in just 21 days and transformed her health. She claimed that this plan was a total game changer for her because she had previously lost a bunch of weight but then the weight came back about a year ago. Dr Oz then explained to Elline and everyone else that a lot of people believe a meal isn’t complete without meat.
Dr Oz: Beans & Legumes Plant-Based Sources Of Protein
Dr Oz proved that you can build a meal with plant-based protein, and showed dieters how to prepare lunches and dinners using a variety of meat alternatives. There’s a ton of beans and legumes to choose from, as well as tofu and tempeh. Check out the list below of some of the beans and legumes you can enjoy:
You can also get protein from nuts and seeds like chia, pumpkin, hemp, or flax. The plan does allow you to have animal protein twice a week, but no more than that. That means you may need to step outside of your comfort zone a little bit, but it will certainly pay off in the long run. Plus, the beans fill you up so much, you won’t want anything else.
Dr Oz: Eat More Food For Fewer Calories
Dr Oz proved that you can eat so much more food when you eat 200 calories of plant-based foods like non-starchy vegetables, as opposed to 200 calories of meat. A 2.5 oz cut of steak is 200 calories, whereas 8 cups of vegetables is 200 calories. Dr Oz compared it to having gastric bypass surgery. You can eat an unlimited amount of those non-starchy vegetables and use up to two tablespoons of olive oil per day. That’s why you won’t go hungry!
Dr Oz: Why Plant-Based Protein Is Better Than Animal Protein
Additionally, animal protein has very little fiber and over-time causes inflammation in the body. That inflammation can lead to more chronic illnesses. Plus because you’re not getting full, you eat more of it, which adds to the problem. By eating a plant-based diet, you’re not only fuller for longer, but your body feels better. You’ll likely poop more too which is always a good thing! That’s exactly why you can have unlimited non-starchy vegetables at every meal. Some examples of meals Elline ate included a lentil burger with dill cucumber chips, or a three-bean vegetarian chili with a cabbage, coleslaw salad.
Additionally, you can have two servings of fruit per day, divided between your morning and afternoon snacks, with a tablespoon of almond butter. Or you could have a fruit with a side of seeds instead of the almond butter.
