I am so in love with Dr. Oz. I try my best to rush home so I can watch Dr. Oz. If I miss anything my mom will gladly fill me in. In a recent episode he talked about supplements that may help you loose weight. I will eventually get to the store and ask for the Chitosan and Flax seeds. Here are 5 of the bad habits that we may have that contribute to weight gain according to Dr. Oz.

Low Fat Oreo

Eating Low Fat COOKIES.


Often these products have added sugar and salt. 100 calorie packs rock if you can only eat just one. I always find myself reaching for the third pack. I would much rather have 6 Oreos and be finished.

Distracted Eating


Eating while your driving, watching television or just standing up over your food are just an example. Have a seat and enjoy your meal in peace.

Eating with friends is always fun. It's easy to get side tracked when the cheese dip is passed at the table.
