Dr Oz: Mercedes Moebuis Diet Tips
Mercedes Moebuis- Mercedes is a mother of 2 girls. She joined Dr Oz’s Transformation Nation because she was 70 lbs overweight and had a breast cancer scare. (Thankfully, it was benign.) After joining, Mercedes lost 36 lbs and went from size 16 to 6. Currently, she’s working on becoming a health and wellness coach and a personal trainer.
Best Tip: Stay hydrated with water or green tea (no artificial sweeteners). Make a big pot, stick it in the fridge and drink it throughout the day.
Dr Oz: Dawn Villanueva’s Hawaiian Pizza Recipe
Dawn Villanueva – Dawn joined Transformation Nation in order to save her hubby’s life. He weighed 216 lbs and had sleep apnea. He’d stop breathing at night and she worried he would die in his sleep. She was also 40 lbs overweight. After losing the weight, Dawn went from a size 12 to a size 4 and her husband no longer suffered from sleep apnea.
Best Tip: Make food your family loves but in a healthy way.
