Doctor Oz had a very interesting segment on today about metabolisms and food and how it can effect you and your health. I like the Doctor Oz show a lot and I'm so glad that there is someone out there discussing the very things that I've said countless numbers of times over the years about food.
Pills to cure illness were never a common staple with our ancestors and it shouldn't be for us either. Simple changes in diet and lifestyle can make a huge difference for us all. I know there are some skeptics out there. They still want to hold onto to the traditions of pill-profit medicine and that's okay. But if you'd rather save a few hundred dollars or so every month, you might want to consider the alternative.
After taking Doctor Oz's test, I found that I'm a reformed Type A personality/metabolism. Type A's suffer from anxiety which is something I've always struggled with, but perhaps the counseling I've gotten over the years for my OCD issues, which stemmed from my mother, has helped me to finally find a balance where I'm now a Type C! Yes I now crave salty AND sweet foods, I get tired, cranky, AND I have aches and pains. YAY!!! I'm so excited to be a happy medium! NOT!!!! LOL!
Regardless of your personality or metabolism, you can change how your body reacts. Doctor Oz suggests a certain diet to follow for each personality/metabolism, and yes, he does suggest that the foods you eat make up your personality. A topic I find very interesting. I know I've changed my diet several times over the course of my life and I've become a different person than I used to be. I thought it was due to growth and experience alone, but could it really be just the food?
Doctor Oz has suggested that there are many studies out there about personalities and diet, however, sorry to say, this Fibro and Fab gal has yet to see it in the Google searches from a reputable site, except this promising one : http://www.rps.psu.edu/indepth/does_personality_play_a_role_in_the_preference_for_spicy_foods.html. But that doesn't mean I won't keep looking.
