Many dieters find themselves on the right track during the beginning stages of a diet. As their body begins to adjust they soon realize that diets are usually a quick fix and will not permanently fight cravings and sustain the body.

People that are new to dieting have to learn to adjust to a healthier lifestyle which includes balancing in cheat meals without over doing it. Dieters that are used to eating unhealthy are more likely to overindulge on unhealthy meals and snacks.

On the April18th episode of the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz shared some antidotes to help the body recover after over indulging on the wrong foods. These quick fixes will also help neutralize unhealthy amounts of carbs, fats and salt so it will not store in the body and cause long term adverse affects on your health.

If you have found yourself loading up on an unhealthy amount of carbs thermogenic (heat producing) foods are the answer. Thermogenic foods have the ability to increase metabolic stimulation in the body and causing thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is the process in which the body burns calories to use the food you have just recently ingested, converting those unhealthy calories into heat.

The day after loading up on unhealthy carbs Dr. Oz recommends starting the day with a glass of tomato juice with horseradish. Meals for duration of the day should consist of protein with low glycemic vegetables with hot sauce. Low glycemic vegetables are packed with fiber and protein and digest at a slow and steady pace and help curb hunger.

In order to counteract an unhealthy dose of salt Dr. Oz recommends diuretics. Salt has a tendency to cause people to retain water which is unhealthy for the body and causes weight gain. Eating foods like watermelon, celery, asparagus, tomato, and kiwi may help flush sodium from the body.

Eating foods that naturally help the body absorb fat may help when too much fat is ingested into the body. Seaweed and Matcha green tea help the body quickly digest food leaving little time for them to store as fat in your body.
