Dr. Oz’s 4-Step Butt-Blasting Plan

When it comes to weight loss, one of the toughest areas to target is your butt. This plan incorporates everything you need to get your butt in shape – food, supplements, and exercise. If you follow these simple four steps, you’ll be well on your way to the backside you’ve always desired!

Dr. Oz’s 4-Step Butt-Blasting Plan

Step 1 – The Derrière Diet

Surprisingly, a key element to losing butt fat is eating carbs. Because your butt is prone to storing fat, incorporating complex carbohydrates will be helpful. They break down slowly, giving you a steady stream of energy without storing fat. So if you add foods like whole grains and pasta to your diet, while keeping simultaneously your fat intake low, you’ll start to see results. Make sure to keep your diet restricted to no more than 275 grams of carbs, 150 grams of protein, and 34 grams of fat. Check out the sample meal plan below, full of protein and complex carbs, but low in fat, to get an idea on how you can succeed on the derrière diet. 

Breakfast: Buckwheat & blueberry pancakes and a turkey sausage

Lunch: Chicken taco in a whole wheat tortilla wrap

Dinner: Lean turkey meatloaf with whole wheat bread crumbs and mashed potatoes

Step 2 – Take a Booty Buster

Kudzu root is a super supplement to bust butt fat. This powerful ancient remedy contains phytoestrogens that help regulate estrogen and blood sugar levels, both of which contribute to butt fat. Try taking 100 milligrams with your daily breakfast. You can find kudzu root at most vitamin stores.

Step 3 – Eat a Butt-Busting Brownie
