Keri Glassman's Diet Tips Dr. Travis Stork: Here at The Doctors we subscribe and promote an overall healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise. Dr. Lisa Masterson: And someone who shares her views today is joining us nutrition expert and author of the O2 Diet, Keri Glassman, welcome. Keri Glassman: Thank you. I’m so happy to be here. Dr. Lisa Masterson: There are so many diet misconceptions out there for women. I mean we are so obsessed with out weight because the media and you know all of that it constraints put on women about how thin they should be and I think we go too fat sometimes. Keri Glassman: I think the biggest misconception and what I hate to see women do and I hate to use the word “hate” but it really gets me so upset is willpower because it’s such a negative energy and women think that they’re, “I’m not going to eat this and I’m not going to do that. I’m going to avoid this” And they’re patting themselves on the back. Well, that’s the absolute opposite attitude of what you should be thinking. And in my book the O2 diet, I talked about empowering yourself to put the right foods in your body, and when you think about the right foods as not only being good for weight loss but being good for your mind and your skin and your bones, the byproduct of feeling good, putting these good foods in your body is weight is loss. Dr. Lisa Masterson: It’s like a lifestyle like we did talk about a lot of times. Dr. Travis Stork: It is. It’s a lifestyle and you have a good relationship with food. Keri Glassman: Exactly. Dr. Travis Stork: Not when where food is bad. Dr. Lisa Masterson: No. Keri Glassman: Exactly, and I always it‘s not eating the chocolate cake it’s I can have the blueberries, but when you change that attitude, you change your entire relationship with food and you’re happier overall. Dr. Lisa Masterson: And you know it has to taste good and Robin you have this phenomenal recipe in Dr. Phil’s cookbook right? Robin McGraw: Yes I do. Actually you know I think one thing that a lot of women here and a lot of people here is that you can’t have red meat. And I actually do not like seafood and I don’t really even like a lot of chicken so I eat red meat almost everyday. And when Phillip wrote this book he also has this cookbook that goes with it. First he wrote The Ultimate Weight Solution and then we have this cookbook. And I added one of my favorite recipes in this book and it’s meat love with red meat. So I really believe in eating that and I really love the recipe. So ladies, eat the red meat, eat a good steak. Dr. Lisa Masterson: It’s good iron. Keri Glassman: Maybe you can also try for grass fed meat with too far more CLAs which is better for you too but try to go for that. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Women actually are often very low in iron. They don’t want to eat too much but red meat is a great way to do that because with our cycles and our periods so red meat is actually healthy. Keri Glassman: I’m craving. Robin McGraw: One of them -- actually. Robin McGraw: Yeah, a lot of women — Dr. Travis Stork: Me too. Dr. Lisa Masterson: And speaking of that our first hot headline is and I’m going to say this, “How breakfast can make you a bitch?” Yes I said that, so the art of cranky really, really cranky. And so in this study what it shows that certain foods especially like if you miss coffee but we know a lot of people have to have their coffee so if they missed their coffee can make them cranky. But then they go on to say things like toast which lacks Vitamin B can do something that’s needs to build your serotonin and things like that can calm you during a traffic jam you know we will— Dr. Travis Stork: What I’m trying to say is if that women eat certain things in the morning they maybe bitchy or cranky if the other things they’re going to be happy and— Dr. Lisa Masterson: And happy food, healthy food I don’t know. Dr. Travis Stork: A lot of these if you’re looking at these fo
