Dr Oz: Diet Mistakes
Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that you need to throw out everything you think you know about losing weight because it is all wrong. He and Dr. Oz outlined the 5 Epic Diet Mistakes you are making and some of them may surprise you, but Dr. Fuhrman says if you change what you eat you will begin to feel better and be able to enjoy life.
Dr Oz: Toxic Hunger vs Real Hunger
Dr. Joel Fuhrman explains that toxic hunger is a withdrawal symptom and it means your diet is inadequate from building up toxic waste in your tissues. Real hunger is what you feel when your body is healthy and well nourished and it leads you to eat the right amount of the right kind of food.
Dr Oz: True Hunger Sensation
While many of us believe that a growling belly is the sign of hunger, Dr. Joel Fuhrman explains that it is actually the body’s attempt at trying to heal itself because your diet is not sustaining you and is bad for your long term health. Real hunger is actually felt in the throat and chest, according to Dr. Fuhrman. He explains that when your body is nourished with healthy food you should not feel toxic symptoms like a growling stomach or a headache. He says you should actually feel discomfort in your neck and upper chest area if you are experiencing true hunger.
Dr Oz: Signs of True Hunger – Enhanced Taste
The second sign of true hunger is enhanced taste. Dr. Oz explained that we have several taste buds in our tongue, but they do not all work at the same time. When we eat toxic foods the first couple of bites usually taste really great, but by the time we get to the end of the bag we barely taste the food at all because we were just eating to eat. Dr. Fuhrman argues that if you eat the right kinds of healthy foods more of your taste buds will come alive and you will enjoy your food more because it will actually taste better.
Dr Oz: Increased Salivation Signs of True Hunger
As your mouth ever watered at the smell of food? Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that increased salivation is actually a sign of true hunger because it elevates your taste and it is a sign that your digestive enzymes are ready to digest and you are ready to eat.
Dr Joel Fuhrman: Mastering True Hunger
When you master true hunger you will actually feel nothing after you eat because you’re satisfied and you just want to live life, according to Dr. Fuhrman. You will feel less fatigued and have more energy, plus you will feel better intellectually because you are doing what is best for your body and your health.
