Dr Oz: Deeprak Chopra July 13, 2011
Dr Oz’s Show on July 13, 2011 is called Deepak Chopra’s Secrets To Reverse Aging. In addition to having some of the coolest eyeglasses, Deepak Chopra is an Alternative Health Guru who has tons of advice on everything from how to slow down the aging process to how to lose weight through meditation. Chopra told Doctor Oz that there are 6 Tastes of Life: Sweet Foods, Sour Foods, Salty Foods, Pungent Foods, Bitter Foods and Astringent Foods. Unfortunately, the American Diet is all too often dominated by just sweet foods, salty foods and sour foods, which can lower your metabolism. Instead, you want to get a balanced diet that contains each of these 6 Tastes of Life. For example, Pungent Foods include ginger, horseradish, cinnamon and mustard. Bitter Foods are things such as spinach and broccoli. And Astringent Foods would be items like figs, mushrooms, lentils and green tea. Deepak Chopra also told Dr Oz that we should take the following Nutritional Complements on a daily basis:
– 1 aspirin (only if you are 40+ years old)
– 2000 mg fish oil
– 2 multi-vitamins
– 2000 IU Vitamin D3 (and of course calcium and magnesium go along with this)

Dr Oz: Stinky Tofu, Cuttlefish Ink & Huitlacoche
Dr Oz also did a segment on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. The list of foods that he spoke about include Stinky Tofu, Huitlacoche and Cuttlefish Ink. Stinky Tofu comes from Taiwan and apparently has an awful smell, but it is extremely high in protein. Huitlacoche comes from Mexico and is often referred to as Corn Smut, because it is a fungus that grows on corn. Huitlacoche is known to strengthen bones and to help fight off infections. The final Bizarre Food is Cuttlefish Ink, which comes from Greece and has properties to fight off and prevent Cancer.
