Dr Oz: Tim Ferriss Energy
With our busy lives and schedules, do you ever feel like you could use an extra boost of energy to help you make it through the day? Dr Oz invited author Tim Ferriss, the so-called Human Guinea Pig, to share some of his latest discoveries and advice on the show. Tim has some ideas that we can probably all agree on, and the tips he’s sharing could save you time while giving you extra energy. Learn about Grapefruit Juice Coffee, Blue Light Energy and get the Edible Dirt Recipe seen on the show.
Dr Oz: Dental Floss Cake Slicer
Tim Ferriss has an idea we can probably all agree on: everyone would like to do more with less effort. That requires finding a solution that gets you the best results in the shortest time. A great example of this is cutting a cake. No one enjoys it, and you usually end up with a messy knife.
But Tim showed Dr Oz how you can use dental floss to more cleanly cut a cake and make even slices without creating a huge mess to clean up afterwards. I like this idea already!
Dr Oz: Tim Ferriss 30/30 Energy Rule
You can set yourself up for energy success all day long using the Tim Ferriss 30/30 Energy Rule. All you have to do is eat 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up each day. That will keep you fueled all day long, while helping you lose weight over time.
Dr Oz: Blue Light Energy
Tim Ferriss created an Energy Crisis Plan to share with Dr Oz viewers and help them find more energy in the day. If you are most tired first thing in the morning, you will definitely be dragging by bedtime.
His advice is to use a blue light for at least 15 minutes for an energy boost. Tim tried this himself and found that he no longer needs coffee and his insomnia has improved. You can get blue light in a tanning bed, but that comes with its own drawbacks.
Another option is the Blue Light Device, which costs about $50 but can give you that lasting daily boost anytime you need it.
Dr Oz: Grapefruit Juice Coffee
If you’re a coffee drinker, you probably count on that energy to spur you through a morning’s activities. But did you ever think about adding Grapefruit Juice to your morning routine? One of the ingredients found in the juice can extend the boost you get out of caffiene.
That means you can drink less coffee if you have a glass of Grapefruit Juice first in the morning.
Dr Oz: Breakfast Black Beans
If you are looking for more ways to incorporate protein into your morning, try adding black beans at breakfast. They are full of fiber and they help you get those needed 30 grams of Protein.
Dr Oz: Tim Ferriss Eats Dirt
Tim’s next advice was something you probably haven’t thought about since childhood. Did you ever make a dirt dessert using pudding and Oreos? This is along the same lines, but it has some healthier ingredients that can give your body energy.
