Join The Doctors on November 26 as they speak with Dr. Mike Moreno about the secrets of living a longer and healthier life. Moreno is the author of the popular 17 Day Diet and the more recent book, The 17 Day Plan to Stop Aging, released September 2022.
The Doctors seek to solve the puzzle of living longer, healthier, and happier through simple yet effective practices. In that pursuit they, along with Moreno’s help, present 17 ways to look and feel younger.
Two surprising tips shared in this episode include taking cold showers for health and following the old adage ‘forgive and forget.’
Cold showers help improve blood circulation and keep skin and hair healthy, as well as help to reduce stress and invigorate the senses. Forgiving others and not focusing on past hurts are two practices that have been proven to help lower one’s blood pressure and heart rate.
Moreno’s plan to stop aging follows the same prescription as his 17 Day Diet book, relying on four 17 day cycles to jump start a plan to reverse the effects of aging. The cycles aim to restore, rebuild, refine and renew. His bestselling diet is based on the practice of metabolic confusion where the body is not allowed to settle into a routine and therefore plateau. His plan to stop aging, on the other hand, is a guide to incorporate more good practices into one’s life in order to live as healthfully as possible. (more…)
Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien joins Dr. Oz on his November 14 show as they discuss her methods for eating well and staying satisfied while sticking to a healthy diet.
Lillien is not a nutritionist, dietitian, or doctor, but her Hungry Girl franchise has attracted millions of followers as she sheds light on how to sate your appetite the wholesome way. She started off with a free daily email of food tips and tricks, but that grew into seven best-selling books, a television show that airs on the Food Network and Cooking Channel, a weekly column on WeightWatchers.com, and regular contributions to other national media.
This time around on Dr. Oz, Lillien has a plan for women to eat twice as much this month and still lose five pounds. She brings four secret ingredients with her that will help bulk up your meals and in the meantime save you calories. She promises that these fixes are quick, easy, and delicious.
Dr. Oz, looking somewhat incredulous, asks Lillien, “You can eat all that stuff and still lose five pounds this month?”, to which she replies, “Ya! It works!” (more…)

The show will feature true weight loss stories of people who have lost huge amounts of weight – 50, 100, and even 200 pounds – to motivate you on your journey of weight loss.

So if others can do it, you can too! (more…)
Dr. Oz interviewed Valerie Bertinelli on his October 22 show as she opened up about divorce, drugs, and losing weight, as well as her new cookbook, One Dish at a Time, which features healthy Italian recipes.
Bertinelli, a longtime television star, lost 40 pounds with the help of Jenny Craig, becoming their spokesperson in 2022. She wrote a book about her weight loss experience called Losing It – And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time. She tells Dr. Oz she has never kept her weight loss off for this long and that her weight gain occurred during a low point in her life in which she was “eating her misery away.”
The star answers fan questions as well. She says she stays motivated to exercise by saying mantras such as “I am healthy” and thanking God for the life she’s been blessed with as soon as she wakes up every morning. She’s asked what favorite foods she has had to cut back on, and says it’s her brother’s delicious gumbo recipe. She used to eat three bowls at a time, but now only has one cup, which is just as good. Her final question is about weight loss support systems, and she says that Jenny Craig was tremendously helpful for her, as well as her friends and family. If you don’t have these, she recommends searching people out from the gym, websites, or wherever you can. (more…)

The star, singer, and host of X Factor tells Couric her personal story of her rise to fame and how, along with it, she developed an eating disorder that almost killed her.

The September 19 episode of Dr. Oz will feature discussion about a dangerous eating pattern that more and more Americans are becoming prone to: binge eating.
Binge eating is a disorder in which you consume large amounts of food in one sitting as a regular occurrence. It is sometimes done in secret, and is different from overeating in that behavioral and emotional symptoms such as guilt and depression often create a vicious cycle of continual eating when you’re already full or not hungry.
Women featured on the show confess that they’re disgusted with themselves for binge eating, have taught the pattern to their children, and desperately want to stop.
One guest is 7 months pregnant but no one in her life has known about her regular binge eating that is potentially harming her unborn child as well as putting herself at risk. (more…)

On September 17 The Doctors took an exposing look at the science behind “food porn.”
Travis Stork explains that when you see a delicious piece of food, the pleasure center in your brain is activated with dopamine, and you get excited by this supernormal stimuli. What to do about this bad habit? Pick better food porn. Instead of a big piece of fruit pie, get excited by dark-chocolate covered strawberries, for example.
The doctors also discuss whether your food is better naked or dressed. They show how easy food swaps can be just as delicious as the fully dressed dish, like chicken marsala with a whopping 973 calories and 37 grams of fat, versus chicken with mushrooms and marinara sauce at 190 calories and 0 grams of fat.
