I try to watch Dr. Oz every day...of course, it helps that he comes on right after Rachael Ray and right before Ellen....

But, tonight, I just finished watching yesterday's show, and as usual, it was powerful.  It never amazes me how sensical Dr. Oz makes everything about our health seem, and at the same time, he always seems to put it in layman's terms.

Yesterday's show was no difference.  Dr. Oz, along with some other medical guests gave us various ways we can lose 10 lbs. with little or no effort.  In an effort to help us remember these things, Dr. Oz is giving away **FREE** bracelets.

The bracelets are blue and say, "Just 10"  It's a good way to remember the list that Dr. Oz gave out yesterday and to also keep you on track.  (Plus, it's the slogan for this new campaign.)

To request your **FREE** Just 10 bracelet, you can visit Dr. Oz's website.

In case you missed yesterday's Dr. Oz show, here were the "quickie" ways to lost 10 lbs. and become a healthier you:

Just 10 | Rule #1: Cut Out Soda

Period. Soda is full of caffiene and high fructose corn syrup. In addition to contributing to weight gain, soda increases your risk of diabetes, bone weakening, and tooth decay.  (See, you know who you are, and I TOLD YOU!)

Just 10 | Rule #2: Stop Eating at Least 3 Hours Before Bed 

The kitchen closes 3 hours before bedtime. Schedule your dinners and eat at the table where you can be conscious of what, and how much, you’re eating.

Just 10 | Rule #3: Move for 10 Minutes Each Day 

Studies indicate that moving just 10 minutes a day can improve your cardiovascular fitness and your heart health; it’s also true that you can drop 10 pounds by exercising just 10 minutes a day. Gunnar has designed 3 moves to help you lose 10 pounds:

The Cart Cleanup: After grocery shopping, take your cart to the farthest cart stand. The walk should take you about 10 minutes.

The 10-Minute Walk: Self-explanatory, but look at your bracelet and remember your commitment to spread the word about the importance of losing 10 pounds. Invite your neighbor, husband, dog, roommate...anyone to walk with you. 

Convert Your Couch: During commercial breaks, convert your couch into a piece of exercise equipment. Click here to view Gunnar's 3 total-body moves.

Just 10 | Rule #4: Exercise Portion Control 

Dr. Ro's rule doesn't ban your favorite foods, but you must exercise portion control in order to drop lose 10 pounds. Instead of eating straight from the bag or box, a habit that makes it difficult to track how much you're eating, portion your favorite snacks into small bowls or plastic bags. Follow Dr. Ro's rule of thumb: Don't eat any snacks larger than the size of you fist.

Just 10 | Rule #5: Weigh Yourself Every Day

Each day, pull out the scale, step on and be courageous, because knowing what you weigh will enable the change. Research shows that, if you track your progress and stay accountable, you will lose weight.

Take a Vitamin B Complex Every Day

Vitamin B Complex metabolizes carbohydrates, proteins, and fatty acids in the body giving you the energy to exercise.

Take Your Vitamins

Each day, take the following: Calcium (600 mg, plus 600 mg from food) and Magnesium (400 mg) – it supports bone strength and prevents fractures. Vitamin D3 (1,000 IU taken with DHA) can help prevent memory loss and heart disease. DHA (900 mg) supports memory and vision while decreasing heart attacks and stroke. Probiotics taken in spore form can help decrease infections and inflammations. Finally, a daily multivitamin will help counteract a less than perfect diet of nutrients.

I think I'm going to print this list out and take it with me to work!  That seems to be the place I have the most trouble remembering these things!

Thank you Dr. Oz for kick-starting us all into a healthier lifestyle!

  1. Park as far away from the store/ work/ school as you can too, that will add some minutes to your move for 10 minutes a day.
    Stairs can help with that too, specially after it starts to snow.
