Doctor Oz announced his most ambitious weight loss challenge ever (“Move It and Lose It”), starting on his January 3, 2011 show and lasting for 11 weeks. Dr Oz said that there is nothing particularly notable in the choice of 11 weeks as the duration of the challenge but he did say that 11 is considered to be a lucky number, his birthday is on the 11th (of June!), it typically takes about 3 months for people to make significant lifestyle changes, and, to go with the theme, he will have 11 experts to guide participants through their weight loss goals. The experts will provide guidance and motivation, webcasts, exercise videos, behavior modification tips, and answers to health and fitness questions. The experts have not yet been identified but we know that Deepak Chopra, an alternative health expert, will be featured on the January 6, 2011 show while leading a five-minute mass meditation exercise.
