Oct 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Today’s episode of ‘The Dr Oz Show’ especially focused on viewers who are about to turn forty years old. Dr Oz was quick to add that the information which he was giving would also benefit those who were in their fifties, sixties, and further, but added that turning 40 is considered to be a huge milestone.

This is largely because of the changes which occur in most people at around that age. Those changes not only cause unwanted physical differences, but can cause emotional changes as well. As the body’s metabolism slows down, weight gain and fatigue are also issues. The libido slows down as well, and wrinkles seem to pop up over night.

According to Dr Oz, however, it doesn’t have to be as bad as it sounds. With the right information, he insists that you can rewrite the story of your life, even AFTER turning forty years old. For that reason, the Dr’s book, ‘The Book of 40′ will share knowledge of how to deal with these types of issues which occur in people over forty.

For example, in Chapter One, it is revealed that stress is oen of the main causes of fatigue. Not only does stress rob you of your sleep, but also keeps your hormones off balance. Enemone is high in protein and can help with this, as can cheese, which helps stabilize blood sugar. Ashwagandha Tea will also give you energy with no caffeine buzz.

In Chapter Three, Dr Oz also shares some ways to fight the slowing metabolism. Cranberry beans will make you feel full, have nine grams of fiber, and a lot of protein. He also suggests using the ‘EZ Weight Plate’ which was made according to guidelines of the America Diabetes Association. The plate will measure the portions of the food groups.

Many other helpful tips, ideas, and products are mentioned in Dr Oz’s book. He gave tips on many of the issues of this generation, as well as the following recipe for Jennifer Esposito’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Walnut Scones.
