Since Dr. Oz testified, I’ve been more interested in finding out what he says about weight loss so I went to the source…his website. I don’t watch the show because I always felt that he didn’t know what he was talking about regarding weight loss and I’ve heard that some of his shows contradict each other. But, I was curious and I should be checking out the competition 😉
On his website, he lists “100 top weight loss tips” and, as expected, there are some really helpful tips that will work and some that won’t work for most.
His helpful tips include (they probably sound familiar to my faithful readers!):
- Slow down while eating
- Don’t eat while distracted
- Enjoy life
- Eat seasonally
Not so helpful tips include:
- Watch your weight and weigh yourself. Yikes – see my earlier blog post about this.
- Identify triggers and picture your goal weight when they hit to resist temptation…um, if it were that easy, we’d all do it!
- Use a tape measure instead of a scale….really?!?! That will only serve to throw us into a bad body image day.
Just like everything else, there are pros and cons to everything and that is why no one plan works for everyone. You need to be discerning when it comes to what will work for you and your body, YOU know what is best. The challenge is that there is so much contradictory information out there that it’s hard to know what to do or where to start. That’s where I come in!
