Dr. Oz: Low-Glycemic Weight Loss Diet, Natural Pain Remedies

Dr-Oz-May-Diet low glycemic index weight lossDr. Mehmet Oz shared tips for losing 10 pounds in 4 weeks on a low-glycemic index diet that involves making 80% of your plate at every meal low-glycemic vegetables and the other 20% protein and fats.

Dr. Oz said this macronutrient combination will ensure you get enough high-fiber vegetables as well as protein and fat to keep you from feeling hungry.

Oz recommended meals such as shrimp with stir-fried vegetables, grilled chicken with roasted peppers and broccoli with avocado, and scrambled eggs with asparagus and tomatoes.

A Low-Glycemic Diet works by preventing surges in blood sugar, which fuels inflammation and weight gain.

When you keep your blood sugar and insulin levels steady, you experience less hunger and prevent fat storage. Dr. Oz also suggested taking a B-complex vitamin every day to boost your metabolism.

Actress Sharon Stone is a proponent of a low-glycemic index diet, and credits it for her bangin’ bikini body at age 58.

Sharon’s low-carb, low-glycemic diet is heavy in red meat and vegetables and shuns sugar and simple carbs, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

Stone has followed the low GI Diet for over many years, and credits it for helping her recover from a brain aneurysm in 2001.

A low-glycemic index diet accelerates weight loss, boosts metabolism and prevents diabetes, said Rob Thompson, author of The Insulin Resistance Solution.
