Dr. Oz: Oz Nation
Dr. Oz had a little quiz for his fans, which he calls Oz Nation. You know you’re Oz Nation when:
- You were eating kale before kale was cool.
- You have a PhD in poop.
- If your friends and family members frequently say to you, “Let me guess, you heard it on Dr. Oz?”
Dr. Oz: Woman with Breast Cancer Loses Weight
One Dr. Oz fan named Madelyn recently sent Dr. Oz an email. In the email, she explained she watches his show and takes notes. She has piles of notebooks of stuff from his show. In one particular show, he talked about the connection between breast cancer and being overweight. Madelyn saw it right before her breast cancer surgery.
At the time, she was 50 pounds overweight. Breast cancer ran in her family. Her sister, mother, and aunt were all diagnosed. Finally, Madelyn was diagnosed. After her surgery, she made the efforts to lose weight.
She set a goal to change her life in 100 days. She followed Dr. Oz’s suggestions to lose weight, using her notes, and lost 35 pounds. She went from a size 12 to a size 6. Now, she tells everyone what they can do to lose weight and change their lives. She also inspired her husband and daughter to eat healthy.
Dr. Oz: Breast Cancer & Being Overweight
Madelyn sat down with Dr. Oz and said she was shocked that Dr. Oz made the connection between being overweight and breast cancer. Madelyn said that she wanted women to show up in their own lives and make the decision to lose the weight so they don’t develop cancer.
Madelyn also said all her friends and family know she’ll begin all her statements with what Dr. Oz said. Dr. Oz said that if you lose five to 10 pounds, especially after menopause, you can reduce your risk of getting breast cancer by up to 20 percent.
Dr. Oz: Have a Smoothie Every Morning
Madelyn explained she lost 35 pounds by starting her day with a smoothie. She uses plenty of kale and fruit, as well as protein in her smoothies. Three times a week, she has kale, but the rest of the week it’s spinach in her smoothies. Kale can slow down the thyroid, which Madelyn knew from a Dr. Oz segment. That’s why she restricts it to three days a week.
Dr. Oz: Strawberry Water with Green Tea
Madelyn also really enjoys Strawberry Water, which was part of a past Dr. Oz diet. But Madelyn’s secret is including green tea as her base instead of water.
