Dr Oz: Dude Food Makeovers
Dr Oz teamed up with Dr Michael Roizen to reveal a plan for men with the “dad bod” or extra weight put on after having kids. While on the topic, they then wanted to shine a light on “dude food.” Those foods we classify as “manly” tend to be meaty and fatty, which means they’re also not exactly good for your health. To avoid getting the dad bod that could be bad for your health, Dr Roizen revealed some of his best dude food makeovers.
First, because just about every man loves a good, juicy burger, Dr Roizen shared his tips for indulging in a healthier version. He suggested building up your burger meat with whole grains. Dr Roizen suggested 3/4 C of whole grains for every 1 pound of ground beef. The grain cut down calories, inflammation, and belly fat, and can be seasoned any way.
For healthier mashed potatoes, try mixing in egg whites and baking them. That way you’re eating healthy food with less fat. Another healthier recipe involves pizza! Dr Roizen suggested that guys try mono-unsaturated fats on their pizza. Olives and avocado taste great and make for great pizza toppings.
Dr Oz: What Does Your Email Inbox Say About Your Brain?
Dr Oz then switched gears to discuss what your email inbox could say about your brain. Do you have an empty inbox because you’re sure to keep it clean and organized? Or do you have an inbox flooded with unread emails and no intention of ever cleaning it out?
Dr Oz explained that there’s a part of your brain that is the attention center, which is supposed to focus on things that are important to you. Every time you receive an email or notification, it can distract you and pull you away from whatever you’re trying to focus on. For the over-checker, he suggested trying to go 30 minutes without checking email for better productivity.
For the under-checkers, it’s a good idea to invest 20 minutes to finding and implementing filters that can help you sort through the clutter. Also, unsubscribe from any email lists you don’t need to be on.
