Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match - of the diet kind, please. Dr. Mehmet Oz played matchmaker on a recent show by dishing up power food combos to boost weight loss, improve vision, beautify your skin, ease digestive problems and more. In addition, Dr. Oz revealed why omega-3s are "good for just about every single part of your body." And here's a prediction: Thanks to Dr. Oz, jumping rope is going to become the new weight loss fad of 2013. Get the inside scoop on all these items below.
Jump rope isn't just for kids. Dr. Oz says it's great for your waistline and boosts your weight loss. Jumping rope burns 50 calories in just three minutes! One caution for adults: Depending on your height, you may want to buy one that's adjustable, such as the Valeo Speed Jump Rope with 10 inch Adjustable Length (click for details).
Dr. Oz recommends the following diet duos:
- Do you gain weight because of chocolate cravings when PMS hits? Ease those cravings and win at weight loss by eating eggs plus broccoli.
- See more clearly by eating spinach with avocado.
- Benefit from beautiful skin by sprinkling olive oil over tomatoes.
- Tummy trouble got you down? Mix flax seeds with yogurt.
One of Dr. Oz's favored supplements is omega-3s. He says it's because they benefit every part of your body, from your brain to your skin to your joints. You can take a supplement or get them in walnuts, salmon or olive oil. Tip: Read about a recent study showing that walnuts are good for your heart and waistline by clicking here.
