Dr. Oz: Bridal Boot Camp
Dr. Oz has been helping two brides, Faye and Lauren, who want to lose weight in time for their wedding with a special Bridal Boot Camp.
Dr. Oz: Start the Morning with a Coffee Cleanse Smoothie
Faye’s bridesmaid Nadege wants Faye to start each morning with a coffee cleanse smoothie. Faye loves coffee, but she skips breakfast in the morning.
Faye’s coffee cleanse smoothie has a little bit of date sugar, coffee, vanilla extract, cinnamon, banana, and almond milk. Just blend it up and drink it on the go.
Dr. Oz: Cut Out Half the Carbs
Lauren’s Maid of Honor Melissa wants Melissa to start cutting her carbs in half at each meal. Lauren said this is going to be very difficult for her. Melissa suggested she have a scooped out bagel to cut the carbs and serve it with egg whites on top.
Dr. Oz: Take a Picture of Yourself in a Bathing Suit
Dr. Oz talked to Jansatta, who was once a bride to be and lost 20 pounds for the wedding. She’s kept it off for 15 years. She suggested Faye and Lauren try taking a picture of themselves in a bathing suit and mark the areas they want to change. Put the picture on the fridge. Then, whenever you go to the fridge, you’ll see the picture and rethink what you’ll eat. This is what Jansatta has done.
Dr. Oz asked all the other brides in the boot camp for their pictures. One woman wanted to change her stomach. Another woman liked what she had going on up top and in back, but she didn’t like her legs or waist. So she gave herself check marks in places she liked.
Dr. Oz: Mark Jordan Pull Ups
Dr. Oz check in with Mark Jordan, who has been trying to do 300 pull ups in one hour to raise $10,000 for the American Heart Association.
He took a brief break from his pull-ups to tell the brides about how great pull-ups are. He said they’re great for toning the arms and you can do them anywhere the’s a pull up bar. It’s also great for relieving stress.
Dr. Oz: Rhomboid Exercise
Dr. Oz said if you can’t do pull ups, try doing a rhomboid pull exercise. Stand as straight as you can with your shoulders back and your arms raised up to form a line with your shoulders. Bend your elbows and keep your hands facing downward. Move your elbows back until your shoulder blades start to touch, then pull back. Keep going and keep pulsing.
