Dr. Oz Talks About How Black Soybeans Reduce Food and Hunger Cravings, Promote Weight Loss
On today’s (November 18, 2013) episode Dr. Oz spoke about a superfood that is at your grocery store and only costs a couple of dollars at your local grocery store! The latest food that Dr. Oz is excited about is black soybean. So, why this particular bean instead of any other kind? Dr. Oz said that black soybeans take a long time to digest because they are very high in protein. High protein foods like black soybean will keep you feeling full for long periods of time while helping you burn more calories at the same time. Not only that, since you will feel full you will notice that your hunger and food cravings are greatly reduced.
