Doctor Oz’s show on 5 Health Tests Every Man Needs re-aired today, and it gave me a great reminder to check with my husband to see what health tests he still needs to do from Dr Oz’s list. The 5 Health Tests All Men Need, according to Dr Oz, are the Self Testicular Exam, Prostate Exam, Guaiac Test (the “Poop Test”), Colonoscopy and Testosterone Test. I am proud to say that my husband is up to date on all of his tests, including the Self Testicular Exam that he promises he did a week ago! If you have a forgetful husband (like me), then what I do is I remind my husband to do his Self Testicular Exam the same day I do my Self Breast Exam.
I also was recently thinking about the Firefighter Drill Diet because I saw the Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn in my local Whole Foods store. I wonder if that book has received a big boost in sales because of this segment on Dr Oz’s show – I would not be surprised! I am tempted to get it as a Father’s Day gift for a firefighter in my area who just became a father and who has been trying to lose weight. Heck, if the book can really make you lose 4″ in 60 days, maybe I should buy a copy for myself too! I did try the brownie recipe where you use apple sauce instead of oil and eggs, and they came out pretty good. I heard from a few readers that you can do the same thing with shredded zucchini as well (instead of apple sauce), so I will have to try that out soon!
Here are recaps of the segments from today’s Dr Oz show:
