Dr. Oz Fights Teen Obesity

Tune in this Monday, July 19 to the Dr. Oz Show when Dr. Oz fights teenage obesity as he hosts the grand finale of his school challenge.

Dr. Oz goes back to school to fight teen obesity – a national problem that has reached epidemic proportions. Along with his HealthCorps team, Dr. Oz is committed to getting America’s teens back on the right track.

Here are the four basic components of the Dr. Oz School Challenge:

Exercise: Be sure to incorporate 30 minutes of physical activity into your day.

Take the Breakfast Oath: You need to feed your brain! Students who don’t eat breakfast suffer from a 20 percent drop in performance.

Make Better Choices at Lunch and Don’t Skip Meals: Remember to choose wisely. Cut down on fat and pile on quality vegetables.

The Snack Swap: Drop the candy and junk food. Have fruit instead. Plan ahead and pack healthy snacks to eat throughout the day.
