Dr Oz: MUFA Monounsaturated Fatty Acids & Slimming Foods

By on May 25, 2010

Doctor Oz played a game called “Flat or Fat?” to teach us which foods are summer tummy flattening foods and which are fattening foods.  I love Dr Oz’s new term MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids)!MUFA: monounsaturated fatty acids

Summer Tummy Flattening or Fattening Foods

Tummy Flattening or Fattening Food #1: Pesto

Pesto is tummy flattening, because it has pine nuts and olive oil, both of which have MUFA’s (monounsaturated fatty acids)!

Tummy Flattening or Fattening Food #2: Salsa

Salsa is tummy fattening, because it is loaded with sodium which makes you bloated.  Instead, Dr Oz suggested chopping up fresh vegetables.

Tummy Flattening or Fattening Food #3: Popsicle

Popsicles are tummy fattening, because they are  have high fructose corny syrup and other artificial colorings usually.  Instead, do what my mother always did for us – freeze grapes.  I wonder what Dr Oz thinks about the popsicles that are made only of fresh fruits… I’m not sure I agree with the blanket statement that all popsicles are fattening.

Tummy Flattening or Fattening Food #4: Olives

Olives are tummy flattening because they are high in MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids) and help to lower cholesterol.
