The Doctors: “Pronut” Post-Workout Snack
The Doctors wanted to learn the truth about the new must-have post-workout meal: donuts! They’re called Pronuts and they contain acai, whey protein, flax seed, agave, and sunflower seed butter. It’s about 85 calories per pronut, and Dr Andrew Ordon said it would be good with a glass of milk. Dr Rachael Ross agreed that they certainly weren’t bad. Dr Jennifer Ashton couldn’t try them because she’s highly allergic to nuts, but said she would definitely eat them if she could because after a workout you want that mixture of carbohydrates and protein to repair and grow muscle.
Not to mention at just 85 calories, it’s relatively guilt-free. Dr Travis said it takes a moment to get used to the fact that it’s not as sweet as a regular donut and definitely tastes different, but added that they grow on you and even wanted another one! You’re basically fooling yourself into thinking you’re eating a donut, when you’re actually taking in a lot less sugar.
“I say go for it,” Dr Travis exclaimed. So will you be indulging in a Pronut anytime soon?
The Doctors: Tips & Tricks For Glowing Skin & Healthy Hair
Beauty expert Jamie Krell joined Dr Rachael Ross to reveal easy and effective ways you can look your best. For glowing skin, it’s important to nourish your body from the inside out. Jamie suggested you eat fruits and vegetables, specifically leafy greens, and green tea because they’re loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants battle compounds in the body that contribute to the aging process and fight free radicals that damage DNA. You can brew your own tea at home because it’s healthier and cheaper that store-bought canned green tea.
Next, to boost hair health avoid too much heat or coloring. Use conditioners with protein to heal damage and repair split ends. Jamie also recommended that you use a wide-tooth comb when your hair is wet rather than a brush. Use a loose hair band if you want to pull your hair back, but don’t pull it too tight.
Stress can affect your skin, just as sun exposure or poor nutrition. Drink a lot of water, stay active, and practice a good skin care routine. You can try a serum with antioxidants, peptides, and anti-aging ingredients to achieve beautiful skin all year round. Number 7 makes a serum for less than $30 that is available at Target.
The Doctors: Improve Your Heart Health
The Doctors then switched gears to talk about heart health. To cut your heart attack risk, try snacking on walnuts to lower bad cholesterol and inflammation in the arteries. Also, try drinking berry water because staying hydrated is vital to helping the arteries function at their best. It could even be helpful to be in a loving relationship as well, because having a loved one not only decreases stress but they can also encourage you to take necessary steps to take care of yourself and live a longer, happier life.

The Doctors: Sterilizing Male Mosquitos In Brazil To Stop Zika Outbreak
The Zika virus has now spread to more than 30 countries, and there is no treatment or cure for the virus. Zika has been attributed to the sudden spike in babies born with abnormally small heads and underdeveloped brains. Now, officials in Brazil are planning to sterilize millions of male mosquitos with gamma rays to reduce the mosquito population before the summer Olympics in August in Rio. They are planning to release the sterile males into target areas to mate with females producing no offspring. The strategy was used before to successfully eliminate fruit flies on an island in Portugal.
