Dr. Oz Today 1/10/2012: Jennifer Hudson Helps You Get Healthy

Doctor Oz has Jennifer Hudson on the show today and she is sharing her formula to transform your life, along with her favorite recipes and exercise tips. Jennifer come out on the show and Oz immediately asks how she lost all that weight? She says it is Weight Watchers and how she decided it was time to do it. Jennifer says she wanted her body back after she had her son and she decided to take it to another level and keep going with it. Her eating habits were the first thing she changed. Jennifer talks about the different ways you get treated when you are heavy verses when you are thinner. She says people are more friendly when you are thinner and weight watchers has empowered her more in life. Oz asks her if she thinks it is funny that she is so well known for weight loss and Jennifer says she is happy for all the success God has brought her. Jennifer says we need to ask what we want for “us” in our lives and go with it. We need to stop trying to get ourselves healthy for others and make the decision for ourselves or we will never be successful.

Jennifer gives us her diet secrets and the recipes she loves that keeps her slim. She says weight watchers is a lifestyle change and that is what she needed to keep off the weight. The first food we see is pancakes with turkey bacon and she is a pancake freak. Her favorite lunch is a turkey burger and sweet potato fries and we see her recipe for a veggie lasagne that uses veggies instead of the pasta. Next, we see her favorite dessert and she shows us chocolate chip cookies. Jennifer keeps bringing up the point value of each food and that is what keeps a person on weight watchers motivated. Weight Watchers tells their member they can eat anything as long as it is proportioned right.

Oz surprises Jennifer with a fan that was inspired by her to lose weight. Robin has lost over 71 pounds on weight watchers and she looks great. A weight watchers rep is on now and they are talking about how to keep your New Year’s Resolution and she says you need the tools to be successful. Tupperware and markers with tape are essential for keeping the food in your fridge organized. Oz says the key is low calorie nutrient rich foods that are high in fiber, high in protein, and water to keep you full. Oz says there are 20 super foods you need to be successful in losing weight. If you go to Dr. Oz’s web site and sign up for transformation nation, then you can get this list of super foods.

Jennifer is back and now we are shown easy exercises that she uses to keep fit. Squats are first and they are to keep your rear tone and tight. Sit ups are the next and she says she does 25 a day. Push ups keep the upper body strong and Jennifer does 25 of these a day. The key to her success is that she picks three exercises that she loves and does them every day.
