On an episode of The Dr. Oz Show that aired last week, Dr. Oz says snacks should contain 10g of this.
A. Fiber -58%
B. Protein -33%
C. Sugar -2%
D. Carbohydrates -5%
This week's Watching Dr Oz Quiz comes from the 2/17/12 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz's Snack Attack, that aired on 7/6/12. He opened that episode by talking about pre-dinner snacks. Getting hungry between lunch and dinner can create the situation of overeating at dinner and packing on the pounds as the years go by.
Eating a snack before dinner, the right snack, can help decrease overall calorie intake during a day. Try one of the four snacks recommended on the show or one that follows the snack rules. Eat the snack at the right time, one to two hours before dinner, to help you to lose as much as eight pounds in one year, says Dr. Oz. That's a dress size!
Dr. Oz Pre-Dinner Snack Rules
Before you start snacking, know the rules. Dr. Oz says these rules are required and there is no cheating allowed – but when you see the snacks you probably won't feel any need to cheat, he says.
- 6g of fiber. Fiber supports digestion.
- 10g of protein. Protein turns on hormones to burn fat and keeps you full.
- Limit snacks to 200 calories.
