Dr Oz did a segment called Break Your Addiction to Sugar and Fat. He was joined by Dr Melina Jampolis, a doctor and a nutritionist who is focused on how to lose weight. Doctor Oz and Dr Jampolis gave a 3 step plan to break your Sugar & Fat Addiction in 28 days!
Dr Oz: Why Are People Addicted to Sugar & Fat?
Dr Oz asked Dr Melina Jampolis what makes people addicted to fat and sugar? She said that fat and sugar effect the same parts of your brain as cocaine and heroine. If you are addicted to sugar and fat, it can be almost impossible to stop eating and even when you are eating, you may still feel hungry. A Fat & Sugar Addiction blocks Leptin Hormones, which is the fullness hormone that tells you to stop eating because you are full. So if Leptin is blocked, no matter how much you eat, you will never feel full, and it is hard to lose weight if you are always hungry.
Dr Oz: Fat & Sugar Addiction
Dr Oz asked Dr Jampolis what we need to do to get rid of a Fat & Sugar Addiction. She said that you must detoxify your liver. Your liver can get fat buildup in its cells, which makes it harder to metabolize carbs and fats and to get rid of toxins. All of these can cause inflammation and Insulin Resistance, plus they can lead to liver damage.
Dr Oz: 3 Step Sugar & Fat Addiction Program in 28 Days
Here is the 3 Step Healthy Detox Program that Dr Oz spoke about with Dr Melina Jampolis:
Dr Oz: Restore Liver with Antioxidants
Dr Oz said that the first step is to restore your liver with antioxidants. Replace all grains in your diet with Cruciferous Vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and radishes. Dr Jampolis said that if you must have carbs, then you can include it in your breakfast because you burn off more in the morning than you do throughout the rest of the day. Also, eat Allium Vegetables like onions and leeks which have bio-flavinoids and phyto-nutrients, which act like important vitamins and minerals in your body.
Dr Oz: Chromium Picolinate for Sugar Withdrawal
Dr Jampolis told Dr Oz that there are supplements she prescribes to help people with Fat & Sugar Withdrawal. You can take 1000 mg of Chromium Picolinate every day to help ween yourself off of a Sugar Withdrawal, because Chromium Picolinate helps insulin to work better in your body. You should stop taking Chromium Picolinate as soon as you are off of the Sugar Addiction, according to Dr Melina Jampolis. You can also take a Vitamin B Complex to help you get over your cravings. B Complex also boosts the Seratonin in your brain and helps with your mood. Unlike, Chromium Picolinate, Dr Jampolis said that you can take a Vitamin B Complex every day (not just for a short period).
Dr Oz: Red Meat in 4 to 1 Ratio
Dr Jampolis said the final step is to cut sugar and fat, especially transfats, from your diet. Eat red meat in a 4 to 1 ratio. So, for every meal that has red meat, eat four meals that are not red meat (like chicken, tofu, or fish). Also, eat 3 servings of fruit every day, especially deeply colored fruits, because these help to lower inflammation, reduce belly fat, and are packed with antioxidants.
