A Quick Oprah - Dr. Oz Recap - Part One

Hi Everyone!

This is going to be a quick recap of Oprah's show from yesterday, about ant-aging, and living a healthy lifestyle. (Part one)

White tea!
Again Dr. Oz stressed the importance of drinking white and green tea, but pointing toward the white teas, as they have a more powerful level of antioxidants.

I agree with the good Doctor. Drink your white tea! Available now in so many different varieties, my daughter loves the strawberry flavored one, and I am a blueberry tea person. Check them out!

Dr. Oz also mentioned spices. Here are a few to have in your cabinet at all times:
1. Cinnamon
2. Ginger
3. Cayenne Pepper
4. Turmeric - which is within cumin
5. Paprika
6. Rosemary for focus.

Now, lets get to the fiber, people!
Women need 25 grams, men need 35 grams, a day!

Remember to please add them slowly over time to your diet, to avoid digestive problems, as I have mentioned in various posts, here, on my groups, and in my articles. Slow down people!

How do you add fiber into your diet?
1. Eat 100 % Whole Grain Bread!
2. Eat beans
3. Eat fruits and veggies (don't drink them, chew)
4. Eat Whole Grain Cereal!
5. Switch to Steal Cut Oats
6. Switch to brown rice
7. Switch to whole grain pasta

Tomorrow, I will be posting the second half of info from the show, which will mainly include exercise and the recommended dosing of vitamins according to Dr. Oz.

Have a wonderful day!
