Not everyone from Jersey is on the shore drinking and partying and putting on the pounds. One of New Jersey’s favorite sons Dr. Mehmet Oz, AKA Dr. Oz has perfected a diet plan that users of it say really does work and change lives. Dr. Oz, 54, one of America’s favorite doctors has been laying the ground work for a diet plan that he says works if you follow it to a T.
He used for his inspiration some other books from the world of diets, that he greatly admired. They are, “Wheat Belly” by William Davis, “Grain Brain” by David Perlmutter,”The Ultra Simple Diet to Kick Start your Metabolism” by Mark Hyman. Some people say that what Dr. Oz prescribes, simply put is way too idealistic for it to really work. Others say he has a refreshing approach to medicine, in that he is true seeker of change, and he looks outside of the proverbial Western box for answers. A lot of people have trouble losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight due to a less then stellar metabolism rate. Dr. Oz developed a plan to up the metabolism rate, and if followed, it’s a guaranteed way to lose weight. It’s a pretty stringent regiment, and only the strongest will prosper. It doesn’t have much wiggle room, Oz himself says if you are not really willing to follow the plan exactly it won’t work, so you shouldn’t even bother. But for those willing to really get down and be serious, the diet plan will work.
Here is what the Dr. Oz diet plan consists of. No wheat with the exception of, 1/2 cup of brown rice a day. No diary except for 2% Greek Yogurt. Next up no alcohol, no wine, no after hours drink, no beer, nothing. No artificial sweeteners, no white sugar, no caffeine. Oz does allow Green Tea, and the caffeine in that. The good thing is, this diet does not call for any additional exercise, that is if you have a regular exercise plan. If not, you have to start something, perhaps a 30 minute walk daily. No eating anything at all past 8 p.m. at night. Some more good news for some folks. This diet does allow you to eat, olive oil, vinegar, nuts, hummus which has a huge amount of protein in it. Also allowed avocados and pickles. The diet plan that Oz advocates is not all bad, it is a complete lifestyle overhaul though. Let’s face it if you are used to going out after work with a few friends and having a drink and eating some greasy appetizers, That won’t work on the Oz diet plan. What will work is a half a cup of brown rice daily, and all the low glycemic vegetables daily you want. Those include chick peas, kidney beans and lentils. Oh, you can’t eat any red mean on this plan, but you can have 6 ounces of chicken, turkey or fish daily. It’s switching out the sugary starches for the low gylcemic vegtables. If you stick with it, you will see remarkable results.
