Are you always looking for diet tips?  Ways to burn off that extra pound or a way to kick a sugar craving?  Dr. Oz had a few tips on a recent show that can help you lose weight that you might not have known about.

#1.)  Eat Pickles. The high level of acid kills your craving for sugar.  So you should try keeping a jar of pickles in the refrigerator at work.  Then snack on them between meals, or have a pickle with lunch instead of chips.

--But be careful if your doctor has you on a low-sodium diet, because pickles are loaded with salt.

#2.)  Drink Banaba Leaf Tea. According to Dr. Oz, most people don't know about it yet, but it's starting to get popular because drinking it lowers your blood sugar.  High blood sugar can lead to weight gain and diabetes.

#3.)  Mix Your Drinks With Seltzer Instead of Club Soda or Tonic Water. One 12-ounce bottle of tonic water has around 120 calories, which is almost as much as a 12-ounce can of Pepsi.  And most types of club soda contain salt.

But seltzer has zero calories because it's just carbonated water.  Granted, your drink probably won't taste as good, but it'll still be fizzy.


I love pickles and I might just have to try that tea.  Do you have any diet tips that might help others?  Share them with us.
