Dr Oz: Dopamine Causes Food Cravings & How to Gauge Low Dopamine Level

Dr Oz: Dopamine Causes Cravings

Have you ever wondered why you can not stop craving food? According to Dr. Oz and his guest, Bryce Wylde, it all comes down to dopamine.

Dr. Oz explained that dopamine is the feel good hormone that has been shown to also regulate cravings for food and the temptations you have to act on those urges. While the dopamine is not the chemical that tells you whether you are hungry, it has been shown to control how much you crave a food.

    If then I need to stay from getting high dopamine levels,what do I do. Beans are low level foods to keep me steady but what else? What can we substitute when at night we get the cravings? I is this then cheese and cracker, peanut butter celery time? If we know we will eat, what choices are the least harm? Why can.t we have a book that says if you crave this–eat that. There are some similar but they re from a calorie standpoint. Is it possible to figure one out with the dopamine in mind.
