Dr. Mehmet Oz recently expanded his empire to a new magazine called "The Good Life." It includes everything from fitness finds to weight loss wisdom. (And thus far, no "miracle" supplements like yacon syrup have infiltrated the publication).
Among the diet tips from "The Good Life" that can boost your weight loss: New and nifty superfoods. Dr. Oz recommends the following:
