Dr Oz’s Dollar Diet
Dr Oz’s Show on July 4, 2011 was about how to lose weight by going on a Dollar Diet. Coupon Mom Stephanie Nelson joined Doctor Oz to teach us how to buy groceries that are affordable and healthy. She gave us tons of great tips on how to navigate the meat, chicken, fish, produce and dairy departments. For example, did you know that you can save quite a bit of money by purchasing frozen ground turkey meat rather than fresh ground turkey? And if french fries are your craving, consider substituting rutabega for the potato because they have fewer calories and carbs. Still need more ideas? No problem! Dr Oz brought the Deen Brothers, Bobby Deen and Jamie Deen, onto his show to teach us how to cook an entire Dollar Menu. In fact, I am planning on making their Turkey Black Bean Burger Recipe tonight.
Dr Oz: Heart Attack vs Heartburn
Doctor Oz also did a segment on the differences between Heartburn vs Heart Attacks. A strong indicator of whether you are having a Heart Attack or Heartburn is where you are feeling the pain. When you have a Heart Attack, you tend to feel pressure in your chest that can move to your neck, arms, jaw or back. Heartburn on the other hand is a burning feeling that you often feel underneath your breast bone, and it can travel up into your throat. Other Heart Attack Symptoms include things like feeling dizzy, short of breath and having cold sweats. Compare that to Heartburn Symptoms which are commonly having a hoarse voice, a cough and trouble swallowing. And of course, if you are ever in doubt as to whether or not you are having a Heart Attack, it is better to be safe than sorry, so go to the emergency room right away!
