If you tend to crave sweet or salty snacks in the afternoon, think twice before feeding quarters into the nearest vending machine. When Dr. Oz wants to crush a craving, he relies on emergency snacks, which he carries everywhere.
Apples, carrots and nuts are great snacks to consider. A glass of vegetable juice also takes the edge off, he says. One snack you may not have thought of are breath strips! "I like [breath strips] because, a lot of times, we have a craving center in our brain that says put something in me," he says. "It doesn't tell you what."
Dr. Oz says a glass of water, a good night's sleep or sex might also satisfy your craving center.
