My first suggestion would be to stop listening to anything Dr Oz says, he is a sell-out, tv quack and doesn't know a damn thing about nutrition. He says what will make him $$.


This x1000.

Stay away from Dr. Oz!!!!!!!

When I started I wasn't loosing much weight after the first week (first week is water weight as you cut out high sodium prepared or restaurant foods ) then I decided to try eating for my blood type.
I'm an o blood type so I added beef back to my diet, 3 ounces at a time, and cut out dairy and carbs. I can have Ezekiel flax bread (love it). Planned out my menus with the calories I was allowed and the weight started falling off like crazy. The best part is that my energy is through the roof. That made it all worth it!! Now when I eat even a morsel of food not on my blood type list I feel lethargic as I had before. Worth trying and the incentive every day is not how I look anymore but knowing the foods I am eating are actually beneficial to my body. I seem to eat for health now rather than just all about taste. Don't get me wrong my tastebuds are totallu alive now and whole foods taste amazing without salt or sugar needed. I still have a little bit of a sweet tooth so I use stevia as a little treat for me. It's all very motivating to keep doing it day after day.

I enjoyed Dr. Oz for about a year (let me preface this by saying that I didn't have cable for this year, and Dr. Oz was probably the best thing on during that time slot). I mainly watched it for entertainment, not for life lessons.

I just got so exhausted by him touting this cleanse, that cleanse, this diet, that diet, these foods you should eat to boost energy, those foods you should eat to boost energy. If I followed his every recommendation, I would be on a non-stop cycle of doing cleanses, and I would also be broke from buying every new product or food he was pushing as his food du jour.

Thankfully, cable is back in my house, and I only watch him casually.
Usually if he spouts something, I'll do my own research to find out the whole truth and don't take his word as gospel.

I ate raspberries like crazy and all I got were those little seeds stuck in my teeth. Dr. Oz didn't warn me about that... ;-)

i followed the Forks over Knives theory (basically the same principal) and lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks, but the biggest issue is, i dropped 20 points off my bad cholesterol, which was my goal, I still follow his basic principal, and am a true believer.

That's something Bob Barker never said...............control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.........and mention Dr. Oz in an MFP thread.

Since apparently God kills a kitten every time I "enjoy my own company", what happens if I do that while watching Dr. Oz (aside from feeling immense shame)?

Dr Oz is paid to sell scams. It's all over the internet if you do a little research and any real doctors out there will laugh at him and at the dribble he speaks. Sorry to be harsh but he is the reason so many people waste money and continue to live unhealthy, unhappy life styles. He sells people lies about health for their hard earnt money.... In my opinion that makes him the worst kind of scum.

I have been hurt by his lies so many times. And when I stoped listening to them and did the research and met with a real Doctor I was told the truth and hey.. I've lost 50lbs. Which I have kept off.

You too can lose weight at no cost and learn a new and healthier life style by continuing to use this amazing site full of amazing people.

Here's all you need to know about Dr. Mehmet Oz who's now been awarded the shameful Pigasus award 3 times:

QUOTE:
...Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has done such a disservice to his TV viewers by promoting quack medical practices that he is now the first person to win a Pigasus two years in a row. Dr. Oz is a Harvard-educated cardiac physician who, through his syndicated TV show, has promoted faith healing, "energy medicine," and other quack theories that have no scientific basis. Oz has appeared on ABC News to give legitimacy to the claims of Brazilian faith healer “John of God,” who uses old carnival tricks to take money from the seriously ill. He's hosted Ayurvedic guru Yogi Cameron on his show to promote nonsense "tongue examination" as a way of diagnosing health problems. This year, he really went off the deep end. In March 2011, Dr. Oz endorsed "psychic" huckster and past Pigasus winner John Edward, who pretends to talk to dead people. Oz even suggested that bereaved families should visit psychic mediums to receive (faked) messages from their dead relatives as a form of grief counseling.

Dr. Oz said on one of his shows that carbs may give you Alzheimer's. Just saying...he is a quack. He started out ok, but then he sold out to gimmicks and endorsing basically anything. Now his show is downright ridiculous. I do watch it for laughs sometimes.

Wait, my mom ate carbs, and now my mom has Alzheimer's. He may be on to something. Crap, wish I would have known sooner, I would definitely stopped her from eating carbs. noway

I didn't think it was possible--I love this one even more than the duck gifs. drinker To all of you, who make MFP entertaining.

You need to change eating habits not do strange eating habits for a few weeks. That does nothing but put the weight (plus more) on after you go off the diet. Balance your eating and add exercise and you will reach your goals. Fad diets do not work and only cause frustration when the weight comes back. Your body needs healthy options and stable eating habits. I enjoy the show but that is just what it is, a show to entertain. I do not subscribe to a lot of what he says but every once and a while I pick up a useful piece of information.

I watched the whole segment on this plan and it's really not as bad as everyone is saying. First off, vegetables are carbs and the plan also has legumes (also considered good carbs) on it as well. Every article I've read in the last year talks about how you should cut sugar out of your diet. It's two weeks of eating heavily of vegetables and getting in protein, and fruits in the morning. If I can get myself to get back to eating veggies and more healthy than what I've been doing over all the holidays then that works for me.

If you don't want to do it, that's fine, no one is forcing you to. But don't act like this is so off base. Even WW tries with the zero points to get people to eat more fruits and veggies and during the meetings I went to they also talked of putting protein into every meal and snack you eat to keep you full longer.

I don't see much value in wheat products other than they are convenient.

Did he say what to do after the 2 weeks of doing this were over?

Yes, he said that you can have unlimited amount of protein and if you want to have dessert to have berries at night. I think if you find that you like how you feel after the two weeks and you want to continue you can. When I was doing well on WW I had very little wheat products and little starchy vegetables. Probably because the points of them were just too high to justify me eating them. The only time I'm able to incorporate them is when I'm back into my exercise regime.

It's important to listen to your body and what it needs. I need to kick myself back into gear so this looks like a way for me to do so and to get myself away from all the sugars that I've been eating over the holidays.

He even said that this is for people who are in a plateau or wanting to start into a healthy eating lifestyle. Of all the detox programs I've seen, this is the most sensible one.

Spectacularly sound advice. :)

Again, let me reiterate... I have absolutely NO intention of following this as I said in my original post. I already know it's completely unrealistic, for me anyway. I already am trying to incorporate more veggies and protein in my diet and yes, cutting back on carbs (not eliminating them) because that's what works for me personally. As for spending time at the gym instead of watching TV, I go to the gym 6 days a week so workouts are not an issue either.

The post (as the last sentence reads) was to get everyone's OPINION of his advice... nothing more.
