Dr Oz: Eat a Hard Boiled Egg
Dr Oz said that an egg has only 4% of the calories you need in a day, but it is packed with protein and helps to fight against frailty. Doctor Oz said that he personally loves eggs but does not like them Hard Boiled. The only reason he mentions eating Hard-Boiled Eggs over other forms of eggs is because it is a fast and easy way to make a bunch on a Sunday and to grab one when you run out the door the rest of the week. But Dr Oz said that you can eat your egg any way you like them!
Dr Oz: Check Your Poop
Dr Oz said that you should check your poop because it can tell you about your health. Here is a quick quiz to take on your poop:
1. Which color should your poop never be? White, red or black? You never want White Poop, because that means that your gall bladder and bile duct are blocked off. Click here to read about another segment that Dr Oz did on White Poop: Dr Oz Pancreatic Cancer.
2. What is the minimum number of poops per week that you should have? You want to poop at least 3 times a week. Dr Oz said that you should aim for anywhere from 3 times a week to 3 times a day, because all of them are ok as long as you are comfortable and don’t notice any serious changes.
Dr Oz: Make 1/2 of Every Meal Vegetables
Most of us do not eat enough vegetables, but Dr Oz loves them because they are like a natural pharmacy. You should aim to make half of every meal consist of vegetables. Divide your plate in half, and fill it up with veggies. For example, you can have salmon as long as half the plate is vegetables, or you can make an omelette that is stuffed with veggies.
Dr Oz: Split Up Your Multivitamin
Dr Oz said that you should take half of your multivitamin in the morning and half of it at night. Vitamins are an insurance policy to make sure that your body is getting everything that it needs, no matter what. Doctor Oz said that some vitamins have a serving size of two, so you can take one in the morning and one in the evening. Otherwise, you can but a Pill Splitter and split up your multivitamin on your own.
Dr Oz also said that your Small Intestine is where most of the vitamins in your body is absorbed, because it has a big, wide, absorptive surface. But you cannot absorb all of your vitamins at once, which is why you want to spread it throughout the day so that you can have a stable dose in your body at all times.
Dr Oz: Bone Boosting Cocktail
Doctor Oz said that you should take a Bone Boosting Cocktail of 1000 IU of Vitamin D3, 600 mg Calcium and 400 mg Magnesium every day. This combination has become so popular that you can even find a combination pill that contains all of these in drug stores now. Vitamin D is crucial because it helps to carry the calcium to your bones. And the Magnesium is necessary to make sure you do not get constipated by the Calcium.

Dr Oz: Get At Least 7 Hours of Sleep
Dr Oz said that there is a brand new study that shows that people who do not get enough sleep are not as sharp as people who get enough sleep. And what is even worse is that these people cannot even tell that they are not as sharp as they used to be. Here are some tips from Doctor Oz on how to get a good nights sleep:
1. Read a book with a reading light, rather than a bright overhead light, before you go to bed.
2. If you have an electric alarm clock, turn it away from your eyes so that the light does not keep you awake.
3. Try one of those old-fashioned eye masks to help keep the light out.
Dr Oz: Breathe & Stretch For 5 Minutes
Doctor Oz said that just 5 minutes of breathing and stretching can add years to your life. Dr Oz’s helper for this tip said that she writes down all of his advice and emails it to her coworkers – what a brilliant idea!

Dr Oz said that you can do something called the Hippie Stretch every morning. All you have to do is stand up and reach down towards your toes. If you cannot reach to your toes, then just grab onto your elbows. This stretch helps to relax your lower back and re-engages your body. Keep your eyes closed and relax.
Dr Oz: Eliminate Simple Sugars

– High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

– Brown Rice Sugar
