2. Create a Fiber Pack

All women over 40 should consume 25 grams of fiber per day to stay healthy. As an added benefit, fiber helps you stay full. However, you don’t want to consume all your fiber at once or you’ll get bloated. Dr. Oz’s Fiber Pack will provide morning fuel and healthy snacking throughout the day so you don’t reach for any harmful goodies like cookies or salty snacks loaded with unhealthy carbs.

Dr. Oz’s Fiber Pack

1 Banana Walnut Bar = 12g of fiber (eat in the morning)

1 Cup Berry Crumble (carry in a plastic baggie) = 8g of fiber

Orange = 2g of fiber

1 Soluable Fiber Single Drink Packet = 3g of fiber

 

Total: 25g of fiber

3. Drink One Glass of Red Wine Daily

With age comes more responsibilities and often more stress, which directly affects the belly by inflaming fat cells and causing weight gain. Studies have also shown a link between a moderate amount of alcohol consumption and less belly fat. Reduce stress where you can and also drink one glass (6 oz) of red wine a day. It’ll help you relax and also provides antioxidant-rich resveratol, known to reduce inflammation.

4. Confuse Your Muscles

Here’s something that may surprise you: Muscles get accustomed to doing the same exercises, and when you’re not challenging them, you stop burning as much fat. To address this dilemma, change up your exercise routine. Check out Dr. Oz’s 7-Day Belly Workout Program, which varies a little bit every day so your muscles won’t get lazy.
