Dr Oz: Pea Protein Powder Reduces Cravings
Dr Oz asked three of his viewers, all women, to try Pea Protein Powder. Honestly this sounds gross, but in the name of health, Dr Oz pushes forward. The ladies were promised that they would see reduced cravings.
Pea Protein Powder is rich in protein and your body digests it more slowly. When you fill your body with junk food, you’ll start craving faster. Protein tricks your body into thinking you aren’t hungry.
Dr Oz: Weight Loss with Pea Protein
The women that took Dr Oz’s challenge ate 300 less calories than they normally would just by replacing their snacks with Pea Protein Powder. Dr Oz said that this is typical, and dropping your calories by just 200 calories a day can have big results over time.
One of the ladies noticed a difference because she gained weight when she used Whey Protein. Dr Oz said that many people are allergic to Whey, and Pea Protein is the safer option.
