Dr. Oz said that Chinese 5 spice is loaded with antioxidants, can lower blood pressure, and reduce your chances of getting heart disease!  You can add this spice to stir fry, and veggies. I’m ready to try that spice!

TLC Diet Tip #2

Plants have sterols (instead of cholesterol). These compounds block cholesterol from being absorbed in our bodies.  You can find sterols in margarine. (but not the stick margarine).  Use tub margarine in place of butter.  Wheat germ is also a great way to get sterols.

Mediterranean Diet Tip #3

Eat healthy fats.  Dr. Oz said to not worry about cutting back on your fat intake.  Instead, replace bad fats with healthy fats.  Replace butter with olive oil, or canola oils.  Introduce fish like sardines and mackerel into your diet.

Dr. Oz’s Secret for maintaining his weight (the same weight at which he was in college) is nuts.  Dr. Oz eats them every day.  Find a nut that you love and make them a part of your diet.
