He is the man behind the curtain who lights up the stage. I got a back stage pass to follow Dr. Mehmet Oz as he prepares for his new season. A new set and tapings twice a day three days a week at his studio at the NBC Towers in NYC. “I’m excited, it’s important to talk to people about what’s going on in their lives,” says Oz.
It’s organized chaos getting the show ready as the good Doctor rehearses in his scrubs. Today’s big segment is 750 pound Suzanne Enman . Her goal to be the fattest woman in the world. “I hope her story awakens others to the reality they shouldn’t tolerate obesity in life,” says Oz.
He also taped some fun segments, like Beauty and the Bees, yes live bees as he explained how their poison is used to make great face scrubs and masks. He cooked with Chef Big Daddy and did his Daily Dose game. When I sat down with America’s favorite Doctor he told me this season he will offer a million dollars to someone. He will follow folks in their everyday life and those who make the greatest changes in weight loss and other categories have at a shot at winning. The down to earth Oz also tells me the key to weight loss. 3 things. Avoid white foods, white sugar, white bread, white starches and more. Exercise and Have good self esteem. He says if you don’t value yourself you won’t lose weight. His top 3 vitamins. Vitamin D, C, and Omega 3′s. His biggest indulgence, dark chocolate covered nuts. Plus he’s a weekend warrior who loves to shoot hoops. My kind of guy. It should be a good season.
