I liked Dr Oz when his show first started. Now I rarely watch him because it is one 'miracle cure'
after another. Who would want to take all the supplements he recommends?

Dr. Oz promotes a lot of stuff that does not seem to work or is so far out of the normal person's price range it is ridiculous!

Saffron grows wild and free where I live... I periodically collect it to use in cooking as the storebought stuff is several hundred $$ per pound. Seriously the stuff is a weed here. But people still get fat here ;)

Dr Oz will tout for anyone who pays him.

I was always leery of Dr. Oz. And all the supplements, really???
Funny how they always say take this "xyz," eat a low calorie diet and exercise like heck!
Well if you'd just exercise and eat right you'd lose the same amount!

Yes, the weight loss and health industry ain't a billion dollar business for nothing, and they know how to stay one step ahead of the FDA, which has no clout, until people pass away from using certain over the counter supplements.

Thru one of those in-ur-email-inbox deep discount offers I tried a Dr. Oz recommended weight loss supplement. I was also participating in a very healthy diet and exercise regimen. Did they help? I think I would have attained the same results without them and kept the money in my pocket instead of Dr. Oz's.

Just like his mentor, Oprah, Dr. Oz owns interest in several supplement companies, Oprah didn't make millions just by talking! Oz has the right name though, he is a schill.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I guess I won't be giving up my gym membership for the saffron extract, lol.

once I read that Dr Oz doesn't even like food. I can't take him seriously after that.

Moving more and eating less works well for weight loss too. Course is doesn't line the good doctor's pockets as well.

I think Dr. Oz is a quack, to be honest. He's promoted juicing, and this product and that product and some sort of other product. I bet his collection of cars or whatever is really pretty.

I notice almost all of these recommended magic potions are always very expensive.

Dr. Oz would promote sleeping upside down in a special cave like a bat for weight loss if he thought he could up his ratings or make a buck off of it.

Seriously that stuff cannot be real saffron. That is the most expensive spice. Twenty years ago three grains of saffron cost $2

true dat. lol

12/21/12 11:27 A

DR Oz irritates me. I agree with LuAnn. Really...I mean, he is always promoting some magic weight loss nonsense. emoticon

Though I am sure there is some kernel of truth in saffron, I am not willing to try it out. Saffron is THE most expensive herb out there. I tried Raspberry Ketones and L Caritine and had no luck whatsoever and no I did not do it on his findings.

Dr Oz's miracle for this month, eh?

Yet another thing many will spend their money on....

Saw a segment on the internet and Dr Oz is promoting buying saffron extract for weight loss. He claims taking these pills cuts your apatite. Has anyone tried these pills and are they working for you? How long have you been on them? Thanks!
