Dr. Oz's Fat Busting Formula: 3 Days + 3 Fat Busting Meals = Lose 3 Pounds!

For the next three days, you'll eat these same three meals. Each recipe is packed with ingredients to maximize your fat loss. Make sure you eat each meal at the same time every day. That will keep cortisol levels low, which helps to bust fat even better!

Breakfast: Tex-Mex Egg & Cheese Muffin

People who eat eggs for breakfast tend to eat less throughout the day, have more energy, and lose more weight.

1 egg

1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 slice of reduced fat Swiss cheese
2 slices avocado
1 tbsp medium salsa
1 whole wheat English muffin 

Lightly oil a small ramekin with some olive oil and crack an egg into it. Use a fork to scramble the egg a bit, or at least pierce the egg yolk so the egg won't "explode."

Ladle one tsp of salsa on top of egg and layer the cheese slice (folded in half) over it. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute and 20 seconds (time may vary depending on strength of microwave).

Carefully remove ramekin from microwave – ramekin may be hot, use potholders if necessary – and let sit a few minutes to settle.

Run a small knife around the rim of the cooked egg and gently invert over the toasted muffin half. Top with the remaining 2 tsp of salsa, remaining olive oil and slices of avocado, and the top half of the muffin.


Lunch: Double Bean Burger With a Belly-Blasting Bun

This will be the biggest meal of your day. This recipe is filled with ingredients that will help your weight loss: Mushrooms and onion to starve fat cells and metabolism-boosting oregano. It's high in fiber, low in calories, and high in water - a fat-busting trifecta!

2 pre-made bean burgers
Iceberg or butter lettuce (2 whole leaves)
1 portobello mushroom, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1/2 yellow onion, sliced into rings
1/2 tbsp olive oil


Add half the oil to a large non-stick sauté pan and cook the mushrooms in one layer on medium heat, flipping over once until nicely browned on both sides.

When mushrooms are done, remove to a plate and add onions.

Add remaining oil and cook the onions until softened and browned, about 10 minutes.

Add back mushrooms and stir together.

Slimming Side: Baked Sweet Potato Fries With Metabolism-Boosting Herbs


1/2 sweet potato, skin on
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp dried oregano


Pre-heat oven to 425°F.

Scrub potato under cold water until clean.

Cut potato in half and save for later use. Cut potato half into long wedges.

In a bowl, combine potato wedges, olive oil and dried oregano.

Spread on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake until browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes, turning halfway through.
