Dr Oz’s Friends and Family Advice
Dr Oz said people in his life are always asking for advice. On this episode, those people agreed to share his best secrets and tips. Gayle King talked about Omentum, Gary Vaynerchuk shared Dr Oz’s hangover cure, his neighbor had a two-bite snack diet solution, and many more secrets were revealed.
Dr Oz’s Best Friend: Don’t Make Emotional Decisions
Michelle, one of Dr Oz’s college friends, said that he always reminded her not to make a decision when she was overwhelmed by emotions. If you are thinking about sending a harsh or reactive email, wait until you are calmer to decide how to respond.
She also spilled the beans that Dr Oz loves bluegrass music. Who knew?
Dr Oz’s Trainer Donovan: Pasta Cravings
Donovan, Dr Oz’s friend and trainer, said that Dr Oz loves to be an early bird, and shows up early for every session. He said that Mehmet taught him how to control his pasta cravings. It’s too bad he didn’t explain what that advice was.
Dr Oz’s Sister: Hydrogen Peroxide Ear Wash
Dr Oz’s younger sister, Seval, said that she taught him to keep her ears clean by washing them out with a capful of Hydrogen Peroxide. It’s just enough to get rid of the germs.
Dr Oz’s College Roommate: Daily Mini-Naps
Billy, Dr Oz’s college roommate, said that the doctor taught him to take many little naps all throughout the day. I don’t know that this would work for me. Would you try it?
Dr Oz’s Cousin: Surprise Spices for Kids
Dr Oz’s cousin Meredith revealed that he is obsessed with babies. She said he taught her to add spices to foods for kids so they can develop their palates as they start to grow.
Dr Oz’s Neighbor: Two-Bite Snack + Water Diet Tip
Lisa Cohen, Dr Oz’s neighbor, is full of questions for him. She said they have been friends for over 10 years, and she loves living nearby. So far, this episode has used Dr Oz’s first name (Mehmet) more in five minutes than it has in the previous five years!
His neighbor Lisa joined him in the studio to share her favorite diet trick that he taught her: have two bites of anything, and drink it with water. This will cure your craving and fill you up.
Doctor Oz explained how it works, whether you are talking about bread, chocolate, or anything else you love. It tricks your stomach and brain at the same time. When you take those first two bites, the brain feels satisfied. Washing it down with a glass of water fills up the stomach, while you still feel satisfied from those bites. This keeps the calorie count down and your enjoyment up.
On the other hand, if you just keep munching on a favorite snack, you are loading up on calories without getting satisfaction or a full stomach. Now you know to cut yourself off by drinking more water. I think First Lady Michelle Obama would approve of this tip.
Gary Vaynerchuk: Dr Oz Hangover Cure
Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk is one of Dr Oz’s basketball buddies. Gary said that Dr Oz is fierce on the court and demands the best from his competitors. Gary is in the wine business and sometimes he does too much tasting.
It’s a good thing Dr Oz taught him a hangover cure: pickle juice. Gary told Dr Oz that 1/4 cup of pickle juice work every time to cure his hangover.
He also surprised Mehmet with a basketball challenge. The loser would have to drink a whole jar of pickle juice. Dr Oz lost the bet, but he didn’t want to drink the giant jar. He chugged a little bit, but I think if you drank a whole jar, you would have worse health problems than a hangover.
Dr Oz + Gayle King: Omentum Belly Fat & Waist Size
From CBS This Morning, anchor Gayle King was Dr Oz’s surprise guest to share the best advice she gave him. King, Oprah’s best friend, said that Doctor Oz taught him about Omentum, the fat around the belly.
She recalled his advice that women should have a 32 1/2” waist, a number that is more important than weight or Body Mass Index (BMI). Gayle King said she has kept her waistline in better shape since learning this advice.
Gayle King on Dr Oz: Kale Chips & B Vitamin Foods
Gayle said that she has started eating Kale Chips, Kale Juice, and many more healthy snacks based on Dr Oz’s advice. “It actually tastes pretty good,” she said.
King said she has also switched to Soy Milk instead of regular milk. She eats a lot of B Vitamin foods as well, such as sweet potatoes, bananas, mozzarella cheese, and bran flakes.
“He is the kindest, most giving man when you’re having a medical problem,” King said. Too bad she did not give out Dr Oz’s phone number!
