The Dr Oz Diet is a weight loss strategy that was created by the highly popular daytime television personality who has become known for making recommendations with regards to what people should do in their own lives in order to drop the pounds.
This strategy is among many different techniques and supplements that have received a recommendation from Dr. Oz. Also called the Ultimate Diet, this is meant to be used by consuming large amounts of vegetables, fruits, lean proteins and whole grains while cutting back on sugars, fats, refined flours and trans fats. The diet also suggests that gluten, caffeine and artificial sweeteners should all be avoided whenever possible. While alcohol is allowed, the limit is supposed to be kept to one drink per day.
The Dr. Oz Diet is also meant to help dieters to learn a lot about portion control. The strategy recommends that smaller plates be used in order to help to keep portion sizes under control. The claim made about this diet is that it will make it possible for two inches to be dropped from the waist size in a span of only two weeks.
The Dr. Oz Diet was first discussed on the celebrity’s talk show back in January 2014. It was talked about in the sense that it helps a dieter to be able to “eliminate foods that are making you sick”. This strategy has been designed to be used by adults of all ages.
That said, when looking more closely into what the official Dr. Oz website has said about this diet, it appears as though the strategy does not have any clinical evidence to suggest that it has been medically studied and proven to be effective. Upon searching through medical journal databases, it doesn’t look as though any independent studies have been conducted.
This is unfortunate, as Dr. Oz has already found himself in the hot seat because of his unsubstantiated claims about weight loss supplements. A federal Senate committee found that he was making irresponsible claims about certain substances and he has since said that in some cases, it was indeed a “mistake” on his part. This makes one wonder whether the same could be said about this program.
Moreover, when looking into third party websites that have reviewed or discussed this program, many comments and dieter feedback statements have indicated that many people are dissatisfied with the technique and that they are not losing weight at anywhere near the rate that is indicated in the marketing literature.
There have also been many dieter complaints with regards to unwanted side effects such as bloating, a lack of weight loss and an overall feeling of discomfort.
