5 Fat Busters, 5 Body Types, 5 Days

In one meal a day, Dr. Oz says you can change your body chemistry through balancing hormones and and blood sugar. Give your body the meal that's right for your body type.

Body Type #1: Big Bottom
A big behind is not as dangerous as belly fat. Dr. Oz says says fat in this area protects you from diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It's the first place that many women gain weight and the hardest to get rid of.

Red Clover Dinner

Dr. Oz recommends what he calls the Red Clover Meal to target fat burning on the back side. He says to start with complex carbohydrates then move onto protein and to keep it low-fat.

Pasta Primavera with whole wheat pasta, chicken strips, 2 cups of any veggie you choose, 1 can of crushed tomatoes, and ½ cup of edamame. The edamame is a hormone shifting element to this meal to help adjust the metabolism the burn fat in the right place more efficiently.

With dinner, drink two cups of red clover tea which contains isoflavones to help regulate the hormones that puts fat on the butt.

Dr. Oz wants viewers to try eating this meal once a day for five days. He also recommends people with a big bottom body type to sit on firm seats. Hard seats are a non-workout workout, according to Dr. Oz, that can help to increase basal metabolism.

Body Type #2: Big Belly

Fifty-percent of women carry excess trunk fat, also known as a big belly. This is the most dangerous area of the body to carry fat, it's toxic and can lead to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. On the bright side, it's easier to lose fat from the belly than any other part of the body. Reducing belly fat by two inches can reduce disease risk by 50%.

CLA Breakfast

To bust belly fat, Dr. Oz recommends eating an Egg and Cheese Muffin breakfast for five days and taking 1,000mg of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA). The CLA keeps fat from being stored and allows the body to burn off the fat more efficiently. Tomatoes act as a natural diuretic. Eating fat is recommended to target belly fat – as long as it's the right kind of fat.

Body Type #3: Big on Top

Do you carry your excess weight on your chest, arms, and back? Dr. Oz calls this the android type of fat storage and says it's dangerous for the heart. Adding stress and neglecting protein in the diet can make heart risks greater.

L-Carnitine Lunch

Boost the metabolism with a Tex-Mex Salad and taking L-carnitine. The emphasis in the diet is on dairy products to lose the weight. The salad includes beans, corn, salsa, and is topped off with one tablespoon of sour cream.

Dr. oz recommends taking 500mg of L-carnitine with this diet plan to stimulate growth hormone. Eating a food containing Vitamin C when taking the L-carnitine increases the activity of of the carnitine.

Body Type #4: Big Thighs

Cutting calories and losing weight doesn't change the fat on the thighs. Fat on the thighs is not metabolically active. It's not dangerous either, but for fat on the thighs makes it hard to walk and hard to get clothes that fit. Thighs are the last place to lose weight but the right foods can help.

Liquid Lunch

Drinking a Liquid Lunch Protein Shake for lunch and taking white kidney bean extract can help target fat on the thighs. White kidney bean extract can inhibit carbohydrates from breaking down in the body so that they cannot turn into fat. This diet focuses on increasing protein intake and decreasing carbohydrates.

Stay away from dairy forms of protein and add cocoa powder and fruit for flavor and variety. Dr. Oz says to shot for 30g of protein in this shake which could either be homemade or pre-made.

Body Type #5: Fat All Over

To address the issue of all over body fat, Dr. Oz says the best tool is what he is calling the #1 miracle in a bottle: Raspberry Ketone. Fitness trainer and weight loss expert, Lisa Lynn, explains that research is showing Raspberry Ketones to be effective in helping the body burning fat, actually slicing up fat so the body can burn it more easily.

The key to raspberry ketone is that it turns up a key hormone involved in burning fat, called adiponectin. This hormone tricks your body into thinking it's thin. This is what you want. When the body is over weight, there is less of this hormone which causes the body to store more fat.

Dr. Oz demonstrated the effect of adiponectin with balloons and nitrous oxide. Inflated balloons, which represent fat, are placed in the nitrous, which represents raspberry ketone. The balloon deflated, shriveled up. Taking the balloon out of the nitrous, taking away the raspberry ketone, the balloon re-inflated.

Ms. Lynn says Raspberry Ketones are available online for about $12. She recommends taking 100mg at breakfast and an additional 200mg at lunch, if needed. It would take 90 pounds of raspberries to get the same amount of ketones available in the pills. Ms. Lynn explains that some clients see results right away an others take a few days before seeing a different. The longer it's used, she says, the better the results.

Dr. Oz summarized that raspberry ketones can help the body to think it is already thin and can help get the metabolism going in the right direction. Ms. Lynn says the biggest change is to eat healthy and exercise everyday and to shift behavior to being thin.

After: a layered look starting with black ¾ length sleeves which is actually shapewear, called Ch'arms shapewear, not too tight though, and on top a bright blue v-neck, sleeveless print shirt. The shape wear is a dark color holding in and giving shape to the arms while allowing for mix-and-match layering of sleeveless tops.

Style Tips for Big Thighs
Before: a bulky sweater paired with tight pants that pulled along the thighs.
After: a ruched shirt that celebrates what you love about your body, a waist, paired with dark pants. The pants are looser fitting and further show off the waist.

Style Tips for Big All Over
Before: a dress without shape, too baggy, trying to cover all curves.
After: a dark dress with a brightly colored belt, and necklaces. The dress shows off the legs and emphasizes the waist.
