This year Doctor Oz has been really good about tackling issues that people face every day in America. The best solutions come from things you can use at home that aren’t expensive or hard to make or get.
Today Fennel Tea was recommended by Dr. Oz to drink before you go to bed to help keep you from destroying your diet. People usually get food cravings right before bed and the specific tea that Dr. Oz recommended on the show was David’s Fennel Tea. All you need is a cup before bed and you should ward off those late night food cravings. Another benefit to the fennel tea is that it will also help you mellow out and go to sleep easier too.
If you get to sleep and get up in the morning and are craving food yet again, the Dr. Oz show had a solution for everyone today. Start off with a Bloody Mary breakfast.
Dr. Oz Bloody Mary recipe was simple:
- 1 Cup of Tomato Juice
- Hot sauce
- Celery Sticks
The hot sauce and horseradish contain Capsaicin which speeds up your metabolism and kills off hunger pains too.
So you make it through the first part of the day and haven’t had too many calories killing your weight loss diet but it’s getting to be lunch time, right? Well the solution today was a nice cup of espresso to fool your body into thinking it was full. Don’t worry, that’s not all Dr. Oz recommended on his show for you to eat to kill the hunger, he recommended cookies. Not just any cookies though, these are “Caveman Cookies.”
The “Caveman Cookies” are packed with protein and don’t have many calories keeping you on a weight loss diet without eating too much food. The cookies are kosher certified, 65-75 calories per cookie, consistent with the Paleolithic Diet (the “Caveman Diet”) and they’re dairy free. You’ll get to enjoy nuts, honey and berries in these cookies recommended by Dr. Oz’s guest Jeanette.
You can always make your own protein cookies for your weight loss plan that is a pale diet too. Dr. Oz provides a great recipe on how to make your own Caveman Cookie substitutes at home by yourself.
