For those who resolved to make 2017 the year of winning at weight loss, Dr. Mehmet Oz is dishing up the details of two popular diet trends for taking off the pounds. Dr. Oz has featured a variety of weight loss options on his popular "Dr. Oz Show" through the years, and now the trendy diets using tea and apple cider vinegar are getting new buzz from the physician on recent episodes of his talk show.

Apple cider vinegar for weight loss

Apple cider vinegar has benefits ranging from weight loss to helping with type 2 diabetes, according to Time magazine. A professor told the publication about the perks that adding this ingredient to the diet has for weight loss.

"My hunch is that it can, but that its impact would be subtle," said Carol Johnston, a professor in the School of Nutrition and Health Promotion at Arizona State University, who has studied the effects of vinegar on health for more than 10 years. In addition to Johnston's view, researchers in Japan discovered that sipping two tablespoons of diluted apple cider vinegar twice daily with meals resulted in a loss of about four pounds after 12 weeks.

"There’s some evidence that the acetic acid in vinegar may turn on fat metabolism,” clarified the professor. She noted that it also can help to block the body's absorption of starchy foods.

Metabolism-boosting salad dressing recipe

Featuring apple cider vinegar for weight loss on his talk show, Dr.

Oz shared that it helps to burn fat. He provided viewers with a metabolism-boosting salad dressing recipe featuring apple cider vinegar that can easily be added to the diet.

To try out Dr. Oz's weight loss recipe, combine 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with two tablespoons of olive oil. Stir thoroughly, and sprinkle it a mixture of herbs, such as garlic powder, rosemary, thyme, and red pepper flakes.

Mix again and use for a salad dressing rather than store bought brands.

Tea detox diets

On another episode of his TV show, Dr. Oz featured tea detox diets, sometimes referred to as teatoxes. But rather than spend a lot of money on what he called "dangerous and expensive prepackaged teatoxes," Dr. Oz suggested teatoxing at home "safely once a season to cut down your water weight, reduce bloat, and shrink your waistline in as little as five days."

For weight loss and detoxing, Dr.

Oz recommended cutting out processed foods, sugar, alcohol, and gluten. Eliminating these foods will boost the metabolism, according to the physician. Then, rather than sipping coffee in the morning, Dr. Oz suggested dandelion tea during the detox. Have a balanced breakfast such as oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts. Enjoy soup or stew for lunch. After lunch, try herbal tea, such as ginger tea.

Minimize tummy bloat

"A cup of fennel seed ginger tea helps reduce indigestion and minimize abdominal bloat," according to Dr. Oz. "To make the tea, infuse a half teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds, a teaspoon of chopped or minced fresh ginger, and a teaspoon of honey in boiling water."

For an afternoon pick-up during this weight loss diet, he recommends oolong tea.

And for dinner during your tea detox diet, create a big salad with veggies including spinach, beets, asparagus, celery and other produce. Add on a protein like fish or chicken, and use a salad dressing of olive oil and nuts. Before bed, Dr. Oz recommends a cup of milk thistle tea.
