Have you repeatedly tried to lose weight and failed? Longing for a safe, effective way to boost your metabolism? On his Feb. 7 health talk show, Dr. Mehmet Oz teamed up with a top nutritionist to reveal a three-phased diet to jump-start your weight loss and rev up your metabolism. Nutritionist Haylie Pomroy has written a book about this plan, entitled "The Fast Metabolism Diet: Eat More Food and Lose More Weight" (click here to pre-order it now).
Get an overview of the "Fast Metabolism Diet" and holistic weight loss supplements recommended by Haylie here:
- Phase One: Enjoy lean proteins, whole grains and fruit for two days to train your body to use nutrients as fuel.
- Phase Two: Eat protein such as juicy steaks and salmon with lots of green veggies for two days to burn fat as fuel.
- Phase Three: Add in healthy fats in the form of coconut, avocado, olive oil, raw nuts and seeds to blast calories for three days.
- Holistic weight loss supplements: Talk with your doctor about the potential for lab work, suggests Haylie. If you've gained midsection weight, it may be due to estrone. Try a diindolylmethane, or DIM, supplement. Is your thyroid the problem? Haylie suggests iodine-rich foods such as kelp, as well as shellfish. (My tip: Wrinkling your nose at kelp or allergic to shellfish? Sprinkle Bragg's Organic Sea Kelp Delight Seasoning on salads, veggies, poultry or meat or try Gold Mine Kelp Noodles with lots of veggies.
