Dr Oz: Healthy Weekly Weight Loss
Dr Oz was thrilled to reveal 99 of “the biggest body myths you need to stop believing right now.” He brought together an entire studio of experts and special guests to help debunk some of the biggest rumors circulating out there. First, is it true that you should only lose 2 pounds a week on a healthy diet? Of course not, because we’re all different shapes and sizes, and you lose fluid as well as fat on a diet.
Dr Oz: Longer Workout, Better Results? + Chlorophyll To Burn Fat
Then, is it true that the longer you workout, the better your results? Actually, you’re better off performing a quick workout with slow movements to really work your muscles. Instead of just going through the motions, take your time and move through each exercise at a snail’s pace.
Will drinking chlorophyll water help you burn body fat? It turns out that it can certainly help you in terms of nutrition and possibly even eating less, but it won’t necessarily specifically target fat for a better or quicker burn.
Dr Oz: Home Remedies For Cellulite
Because so many women are concerned about cellulite, Dr Oz then brought in a dermatologist to explain that weight loss actually won’t usually help with the dimpling. To improve the appearance of cellulite, you can try a micro-needling brush, caffeine cream, or dry brushing. The micro-needling helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, making the overall skin thicker to suppress the fat layer.
The caffeine cream can dehydrate fat cells, causing them to shrink. The effects are temporary, but if you use it every day you may be happy with the results. Dry brushing helps stimulate circulation, improves lymphatic drainage, and removes toxins to make the skin look smoother.
Dr Oz: Does Fiber Cause Bloating?
Dr Oz then wanted to tackle some of the biggest bloating myths. Could eating too much fiber be to blame? Dr Yael Varnado and Dr Oz explained that if you eat the right amount of fiber from the right kinds of foods, it helps move everything through your system. But if you eat too much fiber all at once, it can cause you to bloat and become gassy. Increase your fiber content slowly, a little at a time to avoid those symptoms.
Dr Oz: Nausea Remedy + What Causes Stomach Ulcers?
If you’re battling nausea, should you reach for saltine crackers? Surprisingly, you’re better off using ginger. Either make a hot tea with fresh ginger or suck on ginger-flavored candy to help your stomachache go away. Speaking of your stomach, is it true that stress can cause stomach ulcers? There’s plenty of research that shows just how connected our gut is to our nervous system, but to what extent? The reality is that a large number of ulcers are caused by a bacteria or commonly-used painkillers or other medications.
If there’s leakage through the wall of the stomach or bleeding, it could potentially be life-threatening and need surgery.
If someone is sleepwalking, is it dangerous to wake them? Dr Michael Breus revealed that the person could become a little frightened so you should gently guide them back to bed, but it isn’t dangerous to their health.
Dr William Goldberg conducted tests to find out the truth about two popular alcohol myths. First, he learned that alcohol doesn’t actually warm you up or increase your body temperature. Don’t drink to stay warm! Then, can coffee help sober you up? Nope! The only thing that can do that is time.
Dr Oz: How Long Does It Take To Digest Gum?
Does chewing gum really stay in your stomach for seven years? It turns out that’s actually a rumor likely created by parents and teachers to discourage kids from chewing gum at all. To find out what happens when you swallow gum, Ranata first swallowed her chewing gum, then swallowed a camera to literally chase it through her digestive system. Turns out it will likely “exit” 24-48 hours after being swallowed.
