Dr. Mehmet Oz discussed natural energy boosters and said a high-fiber diet can aid weight loss on the Aug. 15 episode of the Dr. Oz Show.
One surprising way to increase your energy level is to substitute butter for sugar in your coffee. Dr. Oz said the butter in your coffee helps the caffeine last longer in your body. You can also use ghee (which is clarified butter), coconut oil, or MCT oil in your coffee. The healthy fats will also keep your blood sugar stable so you won't feel hungry, said Oz.
While the idea of putting butter in your coffee may sound strange, the concept is catching on, especially among followers of the low-carb high-fat Paleo and ketogenic diets, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
Tibetans have put butter in their morning drinks for generations. They call it po cha, or Tibetan yak butter tea. Ideally, the butter should be grass-fed and unsalted. The fat from the butter will give you a boost of energy during your morning and suppress appetite, which makes it good for weight loss.
Another natural energy booster is rhodiola supplement, said Dr. Oz. Also known as golden root, rhodiola has been shown to increase energy and stamina and reduce depression and stress.
