Dr Oz: How To Lose Weight As A Couple

Dr Oz Couple’s Diet

Dr Oz did a segment on how to lose weight as a couple.  Three months ago, Doctor Oz placed a married couple onto this Couple’s Diet Plan, which was a Weight Watchers Points Plus Program with Liz Josefsberg.  So how did the couple do?  And what are their tips for losing weight successfully as a couple?  Here is the scoop:

Dr Oz: Weight Watchers Points Plus Review

Pete and Susan are the couple who worked with Liz Josefsberg on the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus Program.  They said that the program transformed Dr Oz Crockpot Chicken Recipetheir lives.  They were still able to have their favorite foods in moderation.  So Pete could still have pizza, but just one slice with a salad instead of several pieces of pizza alone.  Susan said it was not just a diet for her, but taught her to be more positive and she found the online tracker to be very helpful.  She could figure out the points in her dinner before she got to the meal and was able to really plan things out.

Liz Josefsberg told Dr Oz that Pete and Susan are so much more confident now and found the program to be very livable and manageable.  In just a few short weeks, they were able to make smart healthy decisions that they will be able to pass on to their daughter.  Susan said the Weight Watchers Points Plus Program changed everything about her, even how she views herself.  Now they take walks int he park and have had an amazing change in their lives.  Pete said that the Weight Watchers Plan worked for him because he was still allowed to have his favorite foods in moderation, because everything is about portion control and staying within your points.  They even seemed to enjoy going to the Weight Watchers Meetings.

Dr Oz brought Pete and Susan back to the Truth Tube, and after just three months on the Weight Watchers Points Plus Program, here is how things have changed for them:


– BMI went from 29 to 26

– % Body Fat went from 41% down to 37%

– Weight went from 166 pounds down to 148 pounds


– BMI went from 35 (which is obese) to 29 (and 30 is the cutoff point for being obese)

– % Body Fat went from 33% down to 28%

– Weight went from 219 pounds to 186 pounds

Dr Oz: Crockpot Chicken Recipe

Susan told Dr Oz that she learned a secret weapon for weight loss from Liz Josefsberg.  She does not need to cook every night or stay in the kitchen all day.  Instead, she uses her slow cooker or crockpot to make bulk chicken on Monday while her daughter is in school.  She puts the chicken into the crockpot in the morning, adds 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth and some taco seasoning.  She lets the chicken cook for several hours in the crockpot, and it comes out very moist and juicy.  She said it is almost like Pulled Chicken instead of Pulled Pork!  Then she uses the chicken in quick dishes all week long like a homemade vegetable soup, wraps with salsa and cheese, or a salad topped with chicken.
