Dr Oz: Fast Food Intervention
Dr Oz met YouTube sensation Daymon Patterson and discussed his fast food diet, including healthy fast food in Dr Oz’s Drive Thru Diet. Next, Dr Oz wanted to use Daymon as an example of how fast food can affect your health. Check out Dr Oz’s Road Rule drive thru advice.
See if you agree with Dr Oz that now is the perfect time for Daymon to change his healthy routine. Daymon hopped into Dr Oz’s Truth Tube to look at his vital statistics. Here’s how his health looked.
Daymon Patterson Truth Tube on Dr Oz
- Height – 6’5”
- Weight – 394 pounds
- BMI – 47 (this counts as Super Obese)
- Blood Pressure – 164/96 (this is very high and Dr Oz said it would cause premature aging)
- Cholesterol – 171
Dr Oz said these numbers, especially blood pressure, mean that you will age faster. He explained that medications could manage the high BP, but they wouldn’t solve the problem.
Daymon said that the reason he wanted to change his life is because he wants to be there for his family, including a teenage daughter and a newborn. “They need their father,” he said. He doesn’t want to miss out on their lives.
Dr Oz: Drive Thru Diet Advice
Dr Oz shared some ideas with Daymon and the audience to ease into some healthier fast food habits.
- Start with soup or salad. “Eat whatever you want, but start with a side salad or soup.”
- Add your own flavor elevator. Keep flavor enhancers in your car to add flavor but not calories. Oz suggested red pepper flakes, garlic powder and sriracha sauce.
- Chew for 10. He suggested slowing down and chewing each bite for at least 10 seconds, to savor the taste and calories but eat less.
This episode marks the first time Dr Oz has recommended eating French fries on his show. Dr Oz said these three small changes could make a big difference in a short amount of time.
Daymon Patterson’s Healthy Fast Food YouTube Video Challenge
Dr Oz challenged Daymon to do one healthy fast food YouTube review each month, to encourage others to make healthy habits a conscious choice. Daymon agreed to give this a shot, and he made it “super official” with Dr Oz.
Dr Oz: Raspberry Yogurt Constipation Remedy
To conclude the show, Dr Oz addressed a Facebook complaint from a viewer named Sonya. She said she has tried everything but can’t find a way to stay regular. Sonya was in the audience, and she bravely came up on stage to get some last-minute advice about constipation.
Sonya said she’s on her feet for hours each day, and can’t seem to find a way to clear up her constipation by the end of each week. She admitted she doesn’t go to the bathroom every day.
Dr Oz recommended one cup of Raspberries (with about eight grams of Fiber) in a live culture yogurt. He said this is now actually prescribed for this condition, and he told Sonya that should help clear up her problem.
