Dr Oz: What Food Cravings Reveal About Your Personality
Dr. Oz and Deepak Chopra revealed what the flavors you crave say about your personality. What is your preference? Salty? Sweet? Sour, perhaps? Find out what your cravings mean and how to bring balance to your live through the foods you eat.
- Sweet – Deepak says we all need a little sweetness, but too much is bad for us. When they are in balance, people who crave sweet foods are nurturing, but when they crave them too much they become nauseating. If you have a sweet tooth, drink a little bit of milk to help absorb the fat and make you feel full.
- Salty – In moderation, salt brings about enthusiastic thoughts, but when you have too much you become aggravating. To reduce your craving for salty foods, eat ½ cup of watermelon.
- Sour – If you crave sour foods, like grapefruit and lemons, it is stimulating, but if you have too much of it you become critical. Try squeezing just a small amount of lemon juice on a meal.
- Pungent – If you like foods containing ginger or cinnamon, it brings about great passion for life, but too much leads to hostile feelings. Add just a pinch of spice to your meals to find balance.
- Bitter – Foods like broccoli and peppers are generally good for you and can provide energy when eaten in balance, but when you have too much you can become bitter or resentful. Try eating a few pieces of raw vegetables with each meal.
- Astringent – Do you often crave foods like cranberries and pomegranate? If so, they can bring about wittiness, but too much of these astringent foods will cause you to become cynical or skeptical. Add just a spoonful to water or yogurt to find perfect balance.
