Dr. Oz: Pine Nuts Stops Cravings

One of the biggest problems with people today is stopping themselves from eating unhealthy food. Another problem is stopping you from eating food late at night sneaking those late night cravings in. Dr. Oz talked about ways to stop late-night cravings just by involving pine nuts into your diet.

What can Pine Nuts do?

Pine Nuts can help stop you from eating late because they have a natural suppressant in them which makes your late night cravings disappear.  They can also stop your appetite because they have an Omega-6 fatty acid that helps increase a hormone that suppresses hunger. Just by taking two tablespoons of pine nuts after 8 p.m. can help stop cravings. The best part is you can eat them in all kinds of ways, plain, roasted, or toasted.
