Dr Oz: 3 Ways For Couples To Lose Weight
Doctor Oz did a segment on 3 Key Ways For Couples to Lose Weight, after introducing a couple who has been struggling to lose weight (click here to read the recap: Dr Oz: Couples Weight Loss). Both Susan and Pete put on over 40 pounds throughout their marriage, so Liz Josefsberg gave 3 tips for a Couples Diet Plan from the new Weight Watchers Points Plus Program (click here for a recap of the segment where Dr Oz introduced this program:Dr Oz: Weight Watchers Points Plus).
Dr Oz: Focus On Percentages Not Pounds
Liz Josefsberg said that men and women lose weight very differently and the Weight Watchers Points Plus program speaks to those differences very well. You and your partner should focus on a small attainable goal like losing 10% of your weight. So for Susan, she would need to lose 16 pounds whereas Pete would need to lose 21 pounds. This takes out some of the frustration that women experience because men tend to lose weight much faster than women.
