Dr Oz: Favorite Tips
Dr Oz’s Viewers All Time Favorite Tips show spoke about all of the great advice that has changed so many lives. If you have not heard about Agave Nectar, Konjac Root Fiber, Anti-Inflammtory Tea or how to Check Your Poop, this is a definite must read! Doctor Oz also did another segment with more tips like the signs of a Female Heart Attack and unhealthy recipes made-over like an Eggplant Rollatini Recipe and a Sausage and Peppers Recipe.
Dr Oz: Agave Chocolate Smoothie Recipe
Dr Oz’s first guest said that she tried everything to lose weight and to kick her sugar habit, but nothing worked until she saw his show on Agave Nectar as a natural alternative to table sugar. She used to weigh 315 pounds and has now dropped 100 pounds. She said she had a serious sugar addiction where she would even wake-up in the middle of the night craving sugar. So even when she exercised, she could not fight against the extra 500 calories she would eat in the middle of the night.
Doctor Oz said that Agave Nectar, which comes from cactus, is a natural alternative to sugar that you can use in place of table sugar. She said that one of her favorite uses for Agave Nectar is to sweeten her smoothies. She said that her favorite Chocolate Smoothie Recipe is made by blending the following ingredients together in her blender:
- 1 TB Agave Nectar
- 1-2 ripe bananas
- 1 TB peanut butter
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 tsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 2 cups of ice
Dr Oz said that by using Agave Nectar, you can use far less of it than you would usually use of sugar, because it is super sweet.
Dr Oz: Konjac Root Fiber
Doctor Oz’s second guest said that she was always hungry and nothing ever made her feel full, until she saw Dr Oz’s segment on Konjac Root Fiber. She said that she had huge cravings in the afternoon for carbs and sugar, but the Konjac Fiber helped to control her appetite so that she has lost 50 pounds since January by incorporating this into her diet and by being on Dr Oz’s Move It And Lose It Program. She said that she has also lowered her cholesterol levels significantly.
Dr Oz said that Konjac Root and fiber in general sucks in so much water that it fills up your stomach so that you just do not want to eat as much anymore. Dr Oz’s guest said she takes 2 grams (which is 3 capsules based on the type that she bought) of Konjac Root Fiber 30 minutes before each meal. She also loves the idea of adding Shirataki Noodles, which have no calories in them, to her stir fry recipes.
Dr Oz: Anti-Inflammatory Tea Recipe
Doctor Oz’s third guest said she used to feel so tired and had no energy, until she saw the Medical Renegades Show. Now she has made her own Anti-Inflammatory Tea Recipe that she says has doubled her energy. She could not figure out how to incorporate so many different spices into her diet, so she now throws them all into a pot of tea and drinks it all throughout the day. Here is what she puts into her Anti-Inflammatory Tea:
- Green Tea Bag
- White Tea Bag
- Cayenne Pepper
- Black Pepper
She said she puts a few shakes of each spice into her tea and it has given her just tons of energy. Dr Oz said that it definitely seems to reboot your tastebuds and he cannot imagine anyone wanting to eat something sweet after drinking it.
Dr Oz: Check Your Poop
Dr Oz’s fourth guest said that his Cancer Prevention segment that spoke about how to Check Your Poop saved her life. She looked twice when she had a bowel movement, and noticed blood in her stool. But she ignored it for 6-8 months before talking to her doctor about it, who sent her to a specialist and they found a polyp in her colon which was pre-cancerous and could have become Colon Cancer if she had not caught it. Here are the four classic colors of poop and what they could mean:
Brown is the color that poop should be, because bile mixes with your food and digestive juices which turn brown.
White Poop means your liver is not working or your Gall Bladder is blocked. This can be an early Cancer Sign, so have your doctor check you out immediately.
Black Poop often means that you have an ulcer that is bleeding into your stomach, especially if your poop has a foul odor.
Red Poop means there is blood in your stool and this could be a sign of Colon Cancer.
The bottom line is that you should pay attention to your body, because it tells you things that you should not ignore. Dr Oz said that if you have white poop, black poop or red poop, you should make a doctor’s appointment immediately.
