    At the end of Dr. Oz show Monday, June 4th. he advertised a sleep aid containing 3 “natural” indredients: Melatonin,Valerian and another. Couldn’t get the product’s name. Can you enlighten me, please. Thank you.

    I have tried a lot of Dr Oz. diet and there is so many of the natural way that I can’t take all the pills and eat all the different foods. I am so confused about what to do. I have tried the Raspberry Ketone diet nothing. I eat heathly but my husband thinks the reason I am having such a struggle with losing weight is do to the fact the Dr. 20 years ago did RAI to my Thyroid and I have not been able to lose weight since. I am going to try this in hopes that this will work. Feeling hopless.

    Alteril sleep aid has L-Tryptophan, Melatonin, Valerian and L-Theanine as the main active ingredients, all which are natural. These compounds all work in slighlt different ways but together they cause the desired results of allowing people to sleep much better. L-Tryptophan, Melatonin work on the brain and send signals to it that tell it that it’s time to sleep and also help to regulate the internal clock of the brain to allow it to stay more regulated which inturn helps you to sleep.

    Valerian is slightly different in the way it works, as its primary mode of action is to cause a sedative or sleepy effect on the body. A person will feel more relaxed and tired after Valerian kicks in. Also L-Theanine works to reduce stress and anxiety which is one of the major causes of insomnia in people. So the combined effect of these 4 compounds have a powerful effect on the body and mind to help people drift off to sleep.

    Avoid the medical mill of going from doctor to doctor. Go see a natural path, a doctor with an OD degree or a functional medicine doctor. They treat the entire body. Also try juicing and watch the movie on Netflix or rent “Fat, Sick and nearly Dead. Then by a Hurom Juicer.

    About the 90/10 diet…any seasonings, oil, sauces? Can tom. sauce be used for pita pizza. How about cheese? How often do I drink the shake? Is there a place I can go to to learn more about this diet?

  6. Carolyn says

    I am so confused with all the great info Dr. Oz gives. Where do I start? I think I will use the 7day crash diet – but would really like a bunch of recipes. I’m not so smart or imaginative when it comes to meal planning. Is this diet in a book – either print or E-book? Also, when it says it lowers insulin – isn’t that bad if you are diabetic?

  7. says

    I have started the 7-day crash diet by Dr. Fuhrman and in 2 days I have lost 2.5 lbs. I was amazed because I just finished the game on diet for 4 weeks had only lost 5 lbs. I feel great! I will keep going to reach my goals.

    I’m fallowing the 7 day diet, I also purchased his book Eat to Live. There are a couple things I don’t understand. First you have the skinny drink with pomegranate juice but in the book it says “No Juice”. Second the 7 day you have oatmeal for breakfast but in the book it recommends just having fruit for breakfast. I hope someone can help! Thanks in advance…Carrie Yenovich

    My husband and I are loving following Dr. Fuhrman’s plan. It took some time for us to collect all the ingredients to make the recipes but has been well worth it. Since last Wednesday I have lost 3.4 pounds since I really don’t need to lose that much I think it is a good start. But, we aren’t only doing it for weight loss we are doing it for our health. Also we hope it might help with our fertility issues. I’ll keep you posted & good luck everyone. One recipe I highly recommend is the chocolate cherry ice cream, it’s wonderful. Good Luck everyone!

    I’m confused. Do we JUST drink the skinny shake for a week and THEN eat the foods recommended or is it blended?

  11. Maria says

    Hi, I love your show! I was wondering, how many times a day can I drink the skinny shake while on the 7 day crash diet? Also what’s the most anyone has lost from this?
    I’d appreciate any detailed answers.
    Thanks much

  12. says

    Need some help with this plan. Do you just drink the shake, or eat the reccomended foods and shake? Can I have coffee? Need more info on this please, so that I can do it right. Thank you

  13. Kelly says

    I’m assuming the oatmeal is not prepackaged, that is the plain oats made on the stove…. Also, when I start this clean eating, the while house will eat the same. How will this affect my kids weight? Neither are overweight and my daughter is already under her ideal weight for her age. What can I add to their diets to keep them from losing?

  14. Adrienne Rogatz says

    I have severe osteo arthritis all over, doing well on Medifast but recently got off it and have bad inflamation. I thought going on Dr Fuhrman plan would be good or me. I would like to include the protein shakes from Medifast as I don’t believe Dr. Fuhrman plan offers enough protein for me. I am per-diabetic and still need to loose about 35 pounds.

  15. Patricia Van Duinen says

    What exactly is the 7 day crash diet?? It is so vague. I bought the book Dr Fuhrman wrote and it doesn’t even mention a crash diet. I am very disappointed in Dr Oz. So why all this talk about a 7 day crash diet or was it just a way for Dr Fuhrman to sell his book?? As far as I can tell, there is no 7 day crash diet.

  16. Cheryl says

    I agree with others; this 7 day crash diet is so vague. Is there a list of what type of foods can be eaten and in what amounts? Is there menu suggestions? How often do you drink the skinny shake for breakfast? Is low fat cheese a no no or can it be eaten in small amounts? What is considered a healthy fat? Boiled eggs; are they allowed? Can Truvia sweetner, salad dressings, condiments of any kind be used? What about sea salt or other seasonings?

  17. Katie Cansler says

    I have found quite a bit of information on the website. There is a magazine article about this which gives specific kinds of foods for each mean and how to blend them to make a bunch of different meals. I found it on the rack by the check out counter at Wal Mart last week. I think the book does not consider it a crash diet because they make it a point to say that it is a life style change. I believe that it may be considered a crash diet because when it’s started, people lose a lot of weight due to the difference in nutrition density.
