Do you constantly struggle with moodiness, body aches and weight gain? Dr. Mehmet Oz explained how to tell which foods are to blame in his Feb. 4 talk show. Plus: Get an update on the diet plan that has attracted so many viewers: Dr. Oz's Two-Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet.

One reason that food sensitivities can be hard to diagnose: Their symptoms may vary dramatically. Symptoms can include brain fog, cravings, emotional roller-coasters, weight gain and even rashes. Dr. Oz's expert on this topic, Nora Gedgaudas, specializes in food sensitivities and is the author of "Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life" (click for details).

Foods that often are the culprit include dairy, corn, soy, wheat and other grains, says Nora. To determine if you have a food sensitivity, she recommends going on a two-week elimination diet. Keep a food diary to track your reactions to different foods and add in new ones gradually.

Dr. Oz expanded on his most popular diet ever: Designed for extreme weight loss, it's the Oz-approved Two-Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet. He said that since he featured it on a past show, the diet has been downloaded by millions. The diet requires eliminating foods such as sugar and wheat while eating more vegetables.
