2014-02-06 11:49

This month, the first issue of Dr. Oz The Good Life magazine tells readers step-by-step how to lose 10 pounds in 4 weeks with a foolproof meal plan that is both sensible and easy. This weight loss plan is written by Janis Jibrin, R.D. a Good Life expert and weight loss coach who is one of several members of Dr. Oz’s A-team in this issue of Dr. Oz The Good Life.

The following is a summarization of Ms. Jibrin’s “Foolproof Food Plan” to help get you started on the road to a slimmer and healthier you.

Foolproof Food Plan Week 1: Just follow the plan

Ms. Jibrin begins her “Foolproof Food Plan” by telling readers right away that the benefits of following her plan are that you will be told exactly what to put on your plate (with choices); that you will be consuming 1,600 calories a day; that you are allowed a recommended snack and treat once a day; and, that the meals will take you only minutes rather than hours to prepare.

The 5-Day Plan

How the plan works is that you are given an easy-to-read 2-page spread featuring a 5-day meal plan covering 15 meals. Each of the meals is a different course with preparation instructions included for your weeks’ worth of breakfasts, lunches and dinners that contain approximately 375, 475-500, and 475-500 calories each respectively.

One representative example for lunch is a chicken sandwich that consists of 3 ounces of skinless chicken breast, 1/3 cup of avocado slices, a roasted red pepper, and fresh basil with 1 and ½ teaspoons of mayo on a whole grain bun. The sandwich is complemented with as many celery stalks as you like and 2 clementines.

The great thing aside from the variety of the meals is that you can swap the meals around to your liking on each day. And, you can pick and choose your favorites from during the weekdays and apply them to your weekend meals to give you a satisfying and temptation-free weekend.

I loved your new issue of The Good Life. Just seeing your picture immediately lowers my anxiety and I feel more relaxed. This is my only suggestion. . Please don't let it morph into the same magazines that are already out there. Keep it focused on what YOU think for us,or that YOU know to be true or that YOU think is wise and right. We want YOUR info not a lot of ads and dime a dozen recipes. Thank you for giving us quality information!
This plan does not indicate what you can drink with your meals (such as tea, coffee, juice) can you add sugar, salt to meals, cream or milk to coffee. Thanks
