If people stopped watching his show and got up and went for a walk while it's on, it would be a "miracle weight loss" happening.

The best thing about D. Oz is his daughter Daphne Oz on the show called "The Chew"

I have no idea who Dr. Oz is.
It sounds like all the cartoons I watch are more believable though.

I loved Dr. Oz in the beginning, now all he does is toute supplements, I have fallen out of love.

I watchDr Oz everyday. The only shows I try to follow are the ones that deal with eating whole unprocessed foods. Once Dr Oz talks about a supplement themarket becomes flooded and it's hard to tell if what you got is the honest to goodness product.

I think the BEST help anyone can get is to talk to people who are on the same journey as you are. I find that those you can relate to can inspire as well as help you learn from their experiences. That is why I am so thankful to have found this site and the great group of members that are a part of it.

In regards to Dr. Oz; I would hope he has good intentions but like so many, he seems to have fallen prey to "stardom".

About the only thing 'ok' about the raspberry ketones is they weren't harmful. I called the company about the caffeine level since my heart rate goes nuts w/caffeine, and it was only 1/2 cup of coffee's worth (probably green coffee- emoticon ). I took the list of ingredients to my doctor, and she said it wouldn't kill me, so if I wanted to try it I should live ... And they were fairly cheap. But, after 3-4 weeks, I only noticed a change in cravings (which can be useful)... no major poundage gone. emoticon

I saw that and almost watched the show. My mom was with me and she said, don't you dare fall for whatever he is selling. My mom is a wise woman. She would have told me to stay away from the raspberry ketones.

What bothers my husband and I, back at the beginning of 2011, in January when his TV show began, he was against supplements and those "cleanses" and said they didn't work, was a waste of money and the companies that make those products were ripping people off. But around 2 months after, you suddenly noticed on his show and especially his Web Site, all those products were advertised heavily, because he discovered that he needed them to pay the bills, keep his show on the air, and so forth. It got worse and worse, he has on various celebs with books to sell, "doctors" who sell supplements and books and diet plans that are questionable, and he agrees to whomever happens to appear on his show at a given time, only to change his opinion on another show when the same subject comes up again. Wishy washy snake oil salesman! My husband says Dr. Oz plays off of desparate Women of a certain age, and he can't understand why they all kneel down to him and lap up his every word.

Newmesc you made me laugh. I agree with all of you. Dr. Oz should stop promoting all these supplements.

Here is a very interesting link : :

Just what you all thought: Dr. Oz and Green Coffee Beans – More Weight Loss Pseudoscience

Dr. Oz is explaining medical procedures well. For the rest... It is all Pseudoscience.

This is so funny! I kind of got tired of him a while back when a lot of the wonder products come from the deep dark jungle in Bolivia, or a forest under a rock in Turkey.

I agree. I watched him a few times but lost interest when every day brought the newest designer gimmick. What happened to yesterday's great breakthrough?

He's actually a surgeon. He appeared on Oprah a couple of times and then got this show (much like Dr. Phil). Somehow having a high likability quotient makes him more qualified than he should be.

I stopped watching long ago b/c I just can't keep up with the "latest and greatest" trends. :(

And of course, it always features the disclaimer "talk to your doctor before trying..." whatever he is flogging. If I went to my doctor and asked for the "miracle" weight loss program, he'd say, "Sure. Eat less and go for a walk."

Hmmm...Green coffee bean AGAIN? Wow, he must be running out of ideas for his show's mandatory daily weight loss miracle (drug/diet/supplement) if he's starting to repeat himself. Maybe he needs some new writers.

TURTLESDOVE Posts: 1,067

yes, I totally agree with you. I guess when they finally run out of miracle weight loss junk, they will go bankrupt, because after all, no one makes money by simply saying that eating less and exercising more is the real key to weight loss.

I have come to realize that Doctor Oz's name fits him very well. He is always off to see the wizard in the wonderful land of Oz. He claims this helps you lose weight, that helps you lose weight ect., well if it all worked then why are more people fat, and why isn't our doctors telling us the great news, and why wouldn't our insurances even pay for something so miraculous, because in the long run they would be saving millions, and millions keeping people at a good healthy weight. Diabetes and heart problems alone would be down along with others things. So remember he is living in the land of Oz, and his show attracts the hopeful, the ones who hope a magical drug or food with come along that will take the fat off without work or discipline.

I saw it. Green coffee bean extract. They did it for 2 weeks, and the placebo group lost 1/2 as much as the group that got the supplement.
Oz is turning into a mid-day snake oil salesman, IMO. I tried the raspberry ketones (another Oz miracle) and all it did was make me burp raspberries. There are no ketones in raspberries- it's all marketing. emoticon

I have to work, but did anyone see the show. Supposedly, he was going to tell about some miracle fat burner. Of course I don't believe it, but I need a laugh today. What was it? Does anyone know?
