Dr Oz: Newest All-Natural Appetite Suppressant
Do you feel like you are always hungry, no matter how much you eat? If you are always counting down until your next meal, Dr Oz might have the perfect natural appetite suppressant for you: Hulled Barley.
Dr Oz: What is Hulled Barley?
Hulled Barley is a 10,000-year-old superfood that could change how your body processes weight loss. It has a nutty flavor and it’s chewy, rich in fiber, and healthy as grains go. Fiber helps to bulk as you digest it, causing you to eat less and lose weight, while suppressing Ghrelin, the hunger hormone.
Linda told Dr Oz that her stomach grumbles at inopportune times during her workday, which is why she tries to drink water or keep almonds around to snack on. Dr Oz thinks Hulled Barley is “mother nature’s skinny sponge.” It has the highest fiber content of any grain, he added.
Hulled Barley is digested very slowly, because it thickens quickly and could shut down those hunger pangs. This has the added benefit of stabilizing your blood sugar better than other grains. The effects can last up to 16 hours.
Dr Oz: Hulled Barley Hunger Scale
Dr Oz wanted to put Hulled Barley to the test, so he asked three women in the audience to try it for three days. Denise said it took her hunger from a 9 out of 10 to a 1 or 2. “I will eat this for the rest of my life,” she said, and she lost three pounds and one inch in three days.
Lauren explained that her baseline hunger was at an 8, but she replaced rice and pasta with Hulled Barley, taking her hunger down to a 2. Caroline told Dr Oz that her hunger dropped from 9 to 3, and the effects lasted overnight!
Dr Oz: How To Use Whole Barley
Hulled Barley is a starch replacement, and Dr Oz said you should use a 1/2 cup in place of a starch at any meal. It’s easy to prepare simply using boiled water, and you could eat it instead of oatmeal or pasta, or stir it into chili. It does take a bit longer to make than rice, or let it soak overnight before preparing it. You can also make it in big batches on the weekend to save time during the week.
Hulled Barley costs about $10 per pound, and you can also find it sold as Whole Barley or Hulless Barley.
