Here are some foods that contain the magic ingredient, Tyrosine.
- Fava Beans
- Wheat Germ
- Mustard Greens
- Ricotta Cheese

Fava beans have a dramatically high concentration of tyrosine, and Dr Oz said that everyone should start eating more of them, since they are not consumed too often in America.

Dr Oz: L-Tyrosine Supplement Review
If you are already on a diet or just need help getting your dopamine levels in check, try a supplement form such as L-Tyrosine.
When you first get up in the morning, take 500 to 1000 mg L-Tyrosine. You can do this for four to six weeks, and the supplement is sold in most stores.
For people who have trouble sticking to a diet, this tool for managing cravings can help you stay on track. You have probably also heard about DHA Omega-3 on Dr Oz, and you can combine that with L-Tyrosine to get even more benefits.
Dr Oz: Fiber Fillers For Portion Control
An ancient principle recommended eating until your stomach is 80% full. Then you should stop so you don’t overdo it. Though it takes will power, it has been practiced for centuries in countries such as Japan.
You can cheat at this by using a fiber filler to help yourself fill up faster. If you use a filler to take up 20% of your stomach before a meal, you will automatically limit your portions.
About 30 minutes before a meal, use Psyllium Husk Powder, Flaxseed Meal, Chia Seed, or Yam Powder to take up some space in your stomach.
