Dr Oz: How To Give Your Metabolism A Jump Start
Is your metabolism in need of a jump start? Dr Oz welcomed top experts who had brand new methods they recommended to put your body’s fat burning into overdrive. Dr Oz welcomed two women he referred to as “the metabolism power duo,” nutritionist Maya Feller and Dr Aviva Romm.
Dr Romm explained that if you’re feeling tired, sluggish, or foggy, aren’t getting good sleep at night, and are gaining weight especially around your belly that you can’t seem to lose, they could all be signs of a slowing metabolism. The good news is that there are simple changes you can make and some people even see major results in just a couple weeks!
Dr Oz: Why Diet Is Better Than Exercise For Weight Loss
Maya Feller explained that you need to create a caloric deficit in order to experience weight loss. If you were to try to do that through exercise, you would need about four hours of high intensity exercise on a daily basis which isn’t sustainable. Instead, you should look at the food you’re eating and aim for healthier, plant-based foods, that way you’re consuming enzymes that really help block fat for a successful outcome.
Dr Oz’s 21 Day Weight Loss Breakthrough is a plant-based diet that can certainly help rev your metabolism, but Dr Romm and Maya wanted to share a few additional tips to get you going in the right direction.
Dr Oz: Metabolism-Boosting Spice Blend
First is the metabolism-boosting spice blend. Dr Romm suggested you add the following blend to your morning drink:
Ginger contains gingerol which helps with lipid metabolism and helps lower the fat in your blood. Cinnamon helps with glucose metabolism, meaning it can help keep your blood sugar regulated. And finally turmeric is an anti-inflammatory herb with other additional benefits. Try adding all three to your morning coffee or tea.
Dr Oz: Spicy Greek Yogurt Dip & Healthy Salad Dressing
Dr Oz then turned to Rhenotha, his go-to tester, to find out more about foods that have ben shown to boost your metabolism. She was munching on spicy Greek yogurt with fresh vegetables. Try mixing the following ingredients to make a healthy dip:
The probiotics in the yogurt promote a healthy gut, which also promotes a healthy metabolism and the spice certainly gets things going!
When it comes to salad dressing, just make your own! Take a mason jar and add red pepper flakes, rosemary, thyme, apple cider vinegar, and extra-virgin olive oil that way you can add it to a salad wherever you go, instead of using the fatty, mysterious dressing you may get from a restaurant.
