Dr Oz: Chris Powell Transformation
Chris Powell said you can make your calorie formula number go up by building muscle mass in just five minutes. It may sound too good to be true, but it may be just the right place to start, especially if you haven’t been working out in awhile.
“Tranformation’s about promises,” he said, but people are more likely to keep promises to others than themselves. How many New Year’s Resolutions have you made and broken about your health or your body?
Chris said it is time for people to make and keep promises to themselves. You don’t have to start big, because that can turn out to be overwhelming. That’s why Powell recommended doing at least a five-minute workout to help yourself make progress toward your goals.

Dr Oz: Mother’s Day Moments
For Mother’s Day, Dr Oz asked moms to send in funny cards and letters from their children.
- Chloe told her mom she would die if she did not get picked up from camp immediately.
- Another girl wrote, “Thank you for making me dinner so I don’t die.”
- Teresa drew a portrait of her mother, which looked very abstract.
- Another girl drew her mom wearing a Got Wine? dress.
Other submissions included letters to moms about their kitchen talents. There was even a card sent to Dr Oz’s wife, from their daughter, Zoe.
