Watch Sunday, August 24, 2014 at noon on WMHT TV.
Based upon insights from the latest research from the world’s leading universities and research centers, WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR? features world-renowned physician, best-selling author and educator Deepak Chopra. With information on the scientific, behavioral and medical basis of hunger in all its manifestations, along with healthy ways to satisfy it, this program is a step-by-step action plan for permanent weight loss, healthy eating and a guide to healing our bodies. Americans spend over $200+ billion dollars a year on weight loss solutions – more every year – yet obesity rates keep going up and our nation is fatter than ever. Dr. Chopra tackles fundamental issues such as food cravings, nutritional imbalances, emotional “starvation” and other root causes of overeating and “hunger.” He also discusses the health benefits of specific foods and how to approach healthy eating so we feel truly satisfied.
Topics explored in the program include a new approach to weight loss, what food cravings mean, when food is good for you and when it isn’t, the latest findings about the effects of food on the brain, why overeating is a kind of starvation, and why conscious eating works.
“We only put food in our mouths for two reasons,” says Dr. Chopra. “We are hungry for nutrients OR we’re hungry for something else.”
