  • Dr. Oz sending bad messages?

    Just read an article in Monday paper by Dr. Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen, stating that 'saturated fat makes you fatter', and the following final paragraph......eating only non-fat dairy, avoiding all red meat, sticking with lean, skinless poultry and fish, cooking with mono- and POLYUNSATURATED VEGETABLE OILS, and eating a handful of walnuts or almonds a day. They also state that saturated fat you eat adds fat to your liver and abdomen...unsaturated fat helps build muscle. Sheesh! These are people that the American public listens to and trusts!
    The life I have today is far better than I deserve.......

    Dr Oz is all over the place. His main objective is marketing his brand and sellng advertising.

      It all depends on who he has on his show at the time. If it was Mark he would be advocating Primal. Guess it works like a paid advertisement.
      Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
      Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
      Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

        in the future, you can stop right there. he's nothing more than a paid shill.
        As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          And he doesn't look healthy at all!! He's too skinny and his skin is so pallid and drawn. I wouldn't want to eat like him it it resulted in looking like him. Just sayin...

            I spent some time on a vegan board where members were equally aghast at his wavering allegiances.

              I take anything Oz says with skepticism.

              The reality is he's a practicing heart surgeon, and he has been involved in some good charitable work. But the reality also is that he's a complete sell-out that will put ANYTHING on his program. Not everything he says is crap- I've seen him host exercise gurus like Tony Horton and he's had some of the big names in Paleo on his show. But he'll also turn around and do a show on miracle weight loss supplements, which I think is just a terrible thing to do. I think when you've got the reach he has, he has a responsibility to not broadcast dangerous crap and scams.

                  This! Exactly! It really bothers me that someone with that kind of influence puts stuff like that out there.....

                      Its hard to regularly create captivating content when most of diet is pretty damn simple...which is why you have people like Dr Oz, and fitness/health/women's magazines who constantly flip flop and claim meat is the devil one week, then its great the next.

                        I take anything I see on TV with a heavy dose of skepticism. Oz, The Doctors, advertisements ("Part of this healthy breakfast"), the news about diet and health, etc.

                        At the end of the day, it is all about ratings and selling a product and services to a consumer that is looking for a quick and easy fix.

                          Yes - Dr. Oz will promote just about anything.

                          Avoid.

                              He's not an idiot or a quack. He's a brilliant human being, heart surgeon, professor, and the host of an entertainment TV show.

                              Yes, his opinions on his show ebb and flow with his guests. He's the host of a talk show, he caters to his guests or he would rarely have guests. (Nobody gets on a talk show to be picked apart.) The fact that people watch a daytime talk show to learn about their health says more about society than Dr. Oz.

                              If you want a proper term to insult him with, I think "sellout' would suffice nicely.
