Dr Oz: Meat-Eating Guidelines
Today’s Dr. Oz Show is dedicated to you because your favorite physician is revealing new ways you can fight disease in 2014! He was joined by his best friend and colleague Dr. Michael Roizen to offer you tips to look and feel your best in the upcoming year!
Dr Oz: You: The Owner’s Manual Review
Ten years ago Dr. Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen co-authored You: The Owner’s Manual and a revised version was released earlier this year to celebrate the 10-year anniversary. Dr. Roizen, founder of RealAge, says the biggest thing he has learned in the past 10 years is that YOU are in control of your rate of aging, not your genes, which was always believed in the past. Vitamins and supplements are a wonderful way to improve your health and fight disease, but getting too much of certain ones can be bad for your health, so Dr. Roizen says you should make the effort to get most of your daily vitamins from the foods that you eat.
Dr Oz: Omega-7 Health Benefits & Eat More Macadamia Nuts
For years we have all been told about the benefits of Omega-3 fats, but Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen have a new recommendation. They want you to add Omega-7 fats to your diet in 2014 because of the numerous health benefits they provide.
- Reduces inflammation
- Stops plaque development in arteries
- Less diabetes
- Less belly fat
- Lower LDL cholesterol
- Decreases amount of fat in liver
The best way to get Omega-7s is by eating Anchovies and Macadamia Nuts. Dr. Oz says to eat 3 servings per week for health benefits.
Dr Oz: Eat Meat with Tomatoes to Reduce Heart Disease Risk
Another important change Dr. Oz would like you to make for 2014 is to look at how meat affects your gut and not so much the amount of fat it contains. He says research shows that the fat in meat is not what causes heart disease, but rather the way it is digested in the gut. The good news is that you do not have to give up all the meat you eat, but you just have to understand the risks and know which ones contain the highest amounts of Carnitine.
- Beef – Eat 1 serving per week.
- Pork – Eat 3 (3-ounce) servings per week.
- Fish – Daily
- Poultry – Daily
If you want to eat more meat every week Dr. Oz says you just need to add more tomatoes to your diet because it works as a prebiotic to feed the healthy bacteria in the gut, which will help with the digestion of meats that contain high amounts of carnitine.
Dr Oz: Best Cancer Fighting Foods
The final big change that Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen want you to make for 2014 is to add more cancer-fighting foods to your diet.
Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli and cauliflower
Allium-containing vegetables – garlic, onions and leeks
Apigenin-containing foods – parsley, celery and artichokes (these foods literally cause the cancer to commit suicide, according to Dr. Roizen)
