The second important tip that was offered by Dr. Oz regarding a person’s diet is to do daily exercises. If you don’t have enough time to make physical exercises at a gym or inside your house, you can simply walk every day for 30 minutes.

Before you start a diet is very important to clean your refrigerator and put things in order.

If one day you make a mistake and you eat something that is not allowed, don’t quit. When you notice that you already lost considerable inches share your successes with your friends and family!
