By ABC Jun 07, 2012

Are you looking to slim down for the summer?  Just follow some of Dr. Oz’s helpful tips and you’ll be in shape in no time.

Slimming Summer Drink

This simple drink is a full glass of grapefruit juice with some apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of honey for sweetness.  The drink changes how you absorb sugar, boosts your metabolism and reduces inflammation.

Beach Towel Exercises

Get your body beach ready with this exercise.  Just grab your beach towel and start doing lunges.  Do one forward and one backward and then repeat the process. Next, hold plank pose for 1 minute

Get a Little Sun

Expose your legs or torso without sunscreen to the sun for 10-15 minutes at least two times times per week. This will give you 10,000 i.u.’s of vitamin D. 

Load Up on Vitamin C

Burn fat with vitamin C.  It’s a key antioxidant that will reduce inflammation and help the body burn fat faster.

Have Some Tomato Sauce

The antioxidant lycopene, which is found in cooked tomatoes, helps fight off harmful effects of the sun and inhibits UV radiation. The combo of tomato sauce with olive oil makes sure it’s absorbed.
