Came across this on his show the other day. He recommends 1,500 calories/day, 15g of saturated fat (or less), and 4-5 servings of fruit and veggies. I thought that was reasonable. There were two women who did this diet for ONE WEEK, and each lost 6-7 lbs! If you go to his website he has recommendations for fast food orders, too.
Thank you for my beautiful siggy, AlexAiden Mommy!
That sounds good, nursing moms would have to add a little more calories though. Im going to aim for 1800 since im only BFing a few times a day and the rest is formula. I love Dr Oz though, i like how he's obsessed with 'super foods' LOL, because so am I! I seriously have to buckle down and get going on this. I keep procrastinating. As soon as my inlaws leave on wednesday im going to pull up my socks and get organized on my diet and exercise. Having company totally throws me off my routine somehow.

I bought the fat resistance diet, which I think he is a fan of, but it is a little too restrictive for me at least in the beginning. It has the super foods which I'm trying to eat, but it literally has no sugar other than fruit. And pastas and stuff don't come in until the third part and then they are whole grain. I am trying to eat more fruits and vegatables, watch my fat and calories and eat whole grains and avoid artificial sweeteners. But no sugar at all is VERY hard for me. The books idea of dessert seems to be totally plain yogurt with non-sweetened blueberries. That is not dessert to me! Dr. Oz's diet sounds a little less restrictive.
Sounds like a goodie. I'm doing 1800 cals a day though because I'm EBF, but I should probably include more fruits and veggies. I would say though that you might have to adjust that based on how active you are, just so you're not starving if you're very very active.
