Lose Your Belly Fat

Do you want to lose 20 pounds in just 6 weeks while eating some of favorite brand-name foods? According to the Dr. Oz Show, this is can happen to you if you choose the right foods within the brands you love.

“I get it—sometimes you just want to grab an easy meal and get going. But today, the best packaged foods no dieter should go without,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces the author of a new diet plan who has scoured the grocery shelves looking for the healthiest choices in packaged food.

With Dr. Oz is special guest David Zinczenko, author of the book “Eat It to Beat It: Banish belly fat—and take back your health—while eating the brand-name foods you love”” who says that you can lose up to 20 pounds in 6 weeks, just by making the right choices in your supermarket that he has already discovered for you.

“I went through all the restaurant menus, all of the supermarket aisles, and I looked at the best of best. Because if you can just come into the New Year, Dr. Oz, to the single best source of every food―whether it’s chocolate or pizza or ice cream or burgers― you are going to lose up to 20 pounds in 6 weeks while looking, feeling and living better than ever,” says Mr. Zinczenko.

To pass muster while passing the mustard, Mr. Zinczenko tells viewers that there are 3 basic rules to guide you on his diet plan:

1. Look for “real ingredients” in your food choices and avoid those with a long listing on the label of artificial additives.

2. Look for foods (such as cereals) that have a 2:1 Fiber to Sugar ratio.

3. Stay under 500 milligrams of sodium.

As examples of what kinds of foods Mr. Zinczenko has found that he outlines through his book for losing weight, the following is a sampling of his recommendations of brand-name foods he found in the supermarket:

Best Frozen Meal: Helen’s Kitchen Fiesta Black Bean Bowl (290 calories, 12 grams fiber, 9 grams protein)

“What you are doing here is having a fiesta without feeling stuffed like a piñata,” says Mr. Zinczenko. “Basically, it’s a burrito without the fat suit. You lose the tortilla—you lose a few hundred calories. It is an excellent choice—you are getting quinoa, spinach and black beans, which is a very powerful antioxidant.”

Best Soup: Amy’s Organic Soups—Lentil Vegetable (160 calories, 340 milligrams sodium)

According to Mr. Zinczenko, you have to go the label and look past the “head fakes” marketers put on the labels and find soups like Amy’s Organic Soups that are made of real vegetables and real ingredients with the criterion that the soup also contains less than 500 milligrams of salt.

“What we’ve found is that with soups, you think are eating healthy and it fills you up, but in fact you could be getting a day’s worth of sodium like in this salty trail mix; or, you get an entire candy bar’s worth of sugar—why do you want to be soup’d up on sugar; or, you get as much saturated fat as 5 servings of cheese doodles,” says Mr. Zinczenko.

Best Energy Drink: GT’s Synergy Gingerberry Kombucha Tea (70 calories, 8 grams sugar)

“The great news here is that it [GT’s Synergy Gingerberry Kombucha Tea] has 70 calories and 8 grams of sugar. There are energy drinks out there that have 250 calories and 64 grams of sugar, so this is a much better choice. And again, you go with your favorite one…you are going to save yourself―in this case―56 grams of sugar and almost 200 calories. Who wouldn’t want to do that?” asks Mr. Zinczenko.

Best Dessert: Vitalcious VitaBownie Deep & Velvety Chocolate (100 calories, 10 grams fiber)

“This is a dessert you can have even when you are dieting,” says Dr. Oz.

“This guy right here is 100 calories, but you are getting 10 grams of fiber,” says Mr. Zinczenko. It has 5 times the fiber as it does the fat, which is amazing. Your taste buds and your cardiologist will be happy with this choice.”
