With the worst of winter behind us, summer and swim suits are just around the corner and now is the time to get your body ready for the beach. According to Dr. Oz, science is showing that you can fight fat with fat by following a new type of diet that will help you become slimmer by summer. But that’s not all. There’s a new special fiber supplement available that will help you fit into your bathing suit that removes 500 fat calories a day from your body.

“Today, a revolutionary idea—I am going to show you how you can get your fat to eat itself away,” says Dr. Oz as he tells viewers that one way to get rid of fat is to eat the right kinds of fat. According to Dr. Oz the mistake people are making today is trying to diet by avoiding all kinds of fats by eating only foods that are labeled as “low fat.” However, as it turns out, not all fats contribute to the fat around your waist and in fact, some help remove belly fat.

“I’m talking about taking a complete shift in how you think about dieting,” says Dr. Oz. “It’s about eating the right fats and not getting rid of the fats.”

The following is a summary of what kinds of fats you should be eating, plus a fiber supplement that can remove 500 fat calories a day from your body:

Slimming Fat #1: MUFAs

MUFA stands for monounsaturated fatty acid. According to Dr. Oz, the easy way to remember which fats these are is that they are fats that do not come from animals. Examples of foods that are rich sources of MUFA type non-animal fats include:

• Olives and olive oil
• Avocadoes
• Coconut oil
• Tree nuts such as almonds and almond butter
• Dark chocolate.

Dr. Oz explains that how these fats work is that they are anti-inflammatory fats that actually help the body relax inside and not go into a stress response of which the body normally reacts to by storing fat. He points out that the biggest mistake people make is heeding past advice to cook with only a teaspoon or two of oil in pan when in fact just the opposite is needed for healthy cooking—cook with more oil. Of course, just as long as the cooking is done with a healthy fat such as the MUFAs listed above.

“This is how it will help you get rid of especially that fat around your belly. It also regulates blood sugar, so it helps regulate some of those hormones that throw our body out of whack as well,” says Dr. Oz who previoiusly has explained how out of whack hormones can cause belly fat in women.

So how much oil is Dr. Oz talking about? Quite a bit—up to 50% of your daily fat calories!

“Here’s the rule for today: 50%―half of all the calories you eat in a day from fat need to be of these MUFAs,” says Dr. Oz. “I want you to add a MUFA with every single meal you eat.”

Dr. Oz recommends that to accomplish this kind of high MUFA diet you will need to eat one serving of any the following foods with each meal:

Slimming Fat #2: PUFAs

“There’s another kind of healthy fat that I’ve not talked about, another category that I’ve never spoken about before on this show—it’s called the PUFA,” says Dr. Oz who tells viewers that unlike the monounsaturated fats in MUFAs that contain one unsaturated fat, PUFAs are polyunsaturated meaning that they contain many unsaturated fats.

According to Dr. Oz, PUFAs can be found in some species of oily fish and in seeds. His recommendation is that along with the MUFAs you should be eating 2 servings of PUFA-rich foods such as:
• 3 ounces of oily fish (mackerel, salmon or sardines)
Seaweed snacks
• 1 shot glass of pine nuts
• 1 ounce of sunflower seeds
• 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil

“PUFAs work very differently from MUFAs,” says Dr. Oz. “MUFAs fight off the inflammation, the irritation in your body. The PUFAs relax your fat. And when your fat is comfortable, you can burn more of it off. It doesn’t feel like that it has to stick to your hips and your waist.”

Fat Eating Fiber Supplement: FBCx

“This is the last thing that is going to help you eat your fat away—it’s a fat-eating fiber,” says Dr. Oz, who tells viewers that its scientific name is “alpha cyclodextrin,” but is more commonly known simply as “FBCx.” FBCx is a natural water-soluble fiber that is categorized as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA and is used in weight loss foods and other products.

“It can eliminate 9 times its weight in fat,” says Dr. Oz. “When you take the FBCx, it will actually bind up to the fat and it takes away about 500 calories of fat a day.”

Dr. Oz tells viewers that to take FBCx that it must be taken not with every meal, but only those that have been especially filled with the bad fats that you want to eliminate from your body so that they will not wind up stored as belly and thigh fat. The FBCx dosage is 2 grams in supplement pill form taken with the meal.

“It’s a tiny, itty bitty fiber that can push a lot of fat out of your body,” says Dr. Oz.
