With the help of recent documentaries, TV shows and legislation, Americans are becoming more aware of just what really is lurking in their favorite foods. But, even with this knowledge, people are still being served processed foods full of chemicals, preservatives and artificial flavors, all deemed safe by the government.
On Monday, February 27, The Doctors, with special guest and celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito, will take a closer look at the harmful additives and processes used to prepare many of the foods we eat every day.
Amongst the foods spotlighted are:
Burgers. Fast food burgers are comprised of “pink slime,” the term given to the mechanically separated meat that has been treated with ammonia hydroxide to kill bacterias like E-coli. Top fast food restaurants say they have discontinued their use of this meat, made from discarded cow parts, but schools still serve it up daily to our kids.

Today on The Doctors, Dr. Travis Stork will be be uncovering the Secrets of Losing Your Gut for Good. This will be his first time doing the show as a sole host. Dr. Stork works as an ER physician and one of the first things he examines in his patients is the amount of belly fat they have. This information can tell him how easily someone might recover from injury and if they can expect to face future health issues like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and others.
Some of the things that will be shared on Dr. Stork’s first-ever solo show are the foods that can help get rid of extra belly fat, statistics on how extra weight can affect your health, little things to do to make a difference in belly fat and some of the best snacks available. As a preview to the show, we’ve listed the top five belly-busting foods Dr. Stork will be sharing:
Beans: Choose dried beans over canned whenever possible. They are a great food because they fill you up without filling you out.
Eggs: Eggs are full of muscle building protein and the vitamin B12 in egg yolks are an energy booster that keeps red blood cells healthy.
Berries: Full of antioxidants, it is better to eat whole berries rather than to drink only the juice. Dairy: Have three lean or low-fat servings of dairy each day to decrease your chances of being overweight by 60 percent.
Whole Grains: Having whole grains that are minimally processed can add fiber to your diet and keep you full. Items higher in fiber and less processed are your best choices. (more…)
In true “here today, gone tomorrow” fashion, Jillian Michaels has left the cast of The Doctors. She has been a part of the cast for less than half of a season and, as the only non-physician on the show, served as their fitness expert.
Michaels, who was well known as the “in your face” female trainer for many of the eleven seasons of The Biggest Loser, has decided that she will no longer be a series regular for the syndicated show, which focuses on health and wellbeing. She had previously announced a desire to start a family and given that as her reason for departing from The Biggest Loser. She released this statement concerning her time on The Doctors:
“This January I will be departing my role as a regular co-host on THE DOCTORS. I have enjoyed my time on the show and the opportunity it provided me in my mission to help others improve their lives. Although it wasn’t the fit both the show and I hoped for, it was a great experience and I wish the show nothing but success.”
UPDATE: On Wednesday, November 30 The P.I.N.K. Method will make an appearance on The Doctors. Program creator Cynthia Pasquella announces that it’s the last diet a woman will ever need.
Today most of the nation had to return to real life and bid their holiday weekend goodbye. Many also had to face the reality of the over-eating they did during their Thanksgiving feasting. This fact makes today a perfect day to introduce a new diet plan to the world. That is exactly what the creators of the P.I.N.K. Method have done. Today the nation’s women will learn about a new plan to help them lose weight for good, and not just the holiday weight.
P.I.N.K. stands for Power, Intensity, Nutrition and Kardio. The program is a fitness and nutrition program designed to help women lose anywhere from 10 to 100 pounds in a unique three phase system. Each phase last three weeks and is tailored to the individuals needs. The phases are broken down into a detoxifying and short term diet stage, a fat-fighting stage, and a weight management stage. The reset, primary, and preservation stages are customized to the dieter after they sign up online and become a VIP member. The membership includes lifetime access to the site, a complete 82-day diet program, diet and workout plans, trainer and nutrition support, along with tracking tools. (more…)
I count calories. I’m not always happy about it, but since the magic thin pill hasn’t been perfected just yet, and I like my skinny jeans, I count those pesky calories. I’ve entertained many fad diets, metabolism boosters, and have literally run myself until I’ve broken. None of these tools have been as effective in maintaining weight as a notebook and a food scale.
This Tuesday, November 15, 2011, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito will join the cast of The Doctors to discuss this very issue on the show. DiSpirito is also giving away some great calorie cutting tips, many I plan to be marking in my trusty little notebook.
The episode will be themed, “Thinner, Younger, and Sexier in 30.” DiSpirito will be revealing 30 calorie savers from his new book, Now Eat This- 100 Quick Calorie Cuts. These cuts are surprisingly easy and impactful. For example, using all fruit jam instead of butter on your morning toast will save 370 calories a week. Other great tips include doubling the celery in tuna salad, ordering half the cheese and doubling the veggies when you get pizza, or substitute salsa for queso dip at a party. All of these simple ideas will save hundreds of calories and sacrifice no flavor.
The general idea is to honor those pesky calories yet not become a diet food eater. DiSpirito says this method is for the person who doesn’t want to diet and who doesn’t want to exercise. He hit the nail on the head when it comes to weight loss. It’s not about the latest gym group exercise class or a rigid diet plan, it’s just about calories.
Tune in Tuesday November 8, 2011 to The Doctors to learn “What’s Worse” for your health.
The docs will determine the answers to questions like “What’s worse, skipping cardio or weights?” The doctors will also examine what’s worse when it comes to food consumption, like “What’s worse, eating fat or eating sugar?”
Be sure to catch this episode and learn some facts about your health you may not have expected.

Tune in to see if Dr. Stork can hold his own against Michaels as Bob Harper goes into full training mode and surely shows them no mercy.
