Dr Oz: Rooibos Tea Ends Hunger Cravings
Now that you know what hunger type you are, Dr. Oz and his guest Dr. Ramani Durvasula have some helpful solutions to help you avoid overeating due to sensory, emotional, or habitual triggers.
Dr Oz: Know Your Hunger Type & Stop Overeating
Dr. Ramani Durvasula says that if you know your hunger type you can stop overeating today. Depending on your hunger type, she has some solutions to offer so that you can be better prepared to go into different food situations where you might eat even if you are not hungry.
Dr Oz: Sensory Hunger Type Solution
Dr. Durvasula says there is research that shows if you smell Grapefruit Oil before entering a “battlefield” or a situation where you will be overwhelmed by the sight and smells of different foods, the smell of the Grapefruit Oil will actually override some of those and help you to eat less.
Dr Oz: Emotional Hunger Type Solution
Dr. Ramani Durvasula says that emotional hunger types are often seeking comfort when they eat, so the key is to put something warm into your body, like tea. She recommends Rooibos Tea because not only is it warm, but also a little sweet, and filled with antioxidants which help to lower stress. It is like getting a hug, but in the form of a warm cup of tea. Another recommendation for emotional hunger type eaters is a supplement called Satiereal Saffron Extract. Dr. Oz says studies have shown that taking this supplement can make you feel better and snack less, which can also lead to weight loss. He adds that he has gotten a lot of positive feedback from patients regarding this supplement and its benefits.
