Dr. Oz Weight Loss Guest Expert Joel Fuhrman About Weight Watchers
A recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show featured weight loss guest expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Dr. Fuhrman has appeared repeatedly on The Dr. Oz Show with the message of how his weight loss program produces superior and healthier results in comparison to commercial weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers.
Like Dr. Fuhrman, representatives of Watch Watchers are also repeatedly featured on the Dr. Oz Show with info and tips on how to lose weight through their program by buying and/or creating food choices/substitutions graded on a point system that allows a dieter to eat without desire deprivation. In other words, abstinence of chocolates and other desserts is not necessary as long as a dieter chooses low-cal versions and sticks to the point system’s daily calorie count.
Last year, U.S. News and World Report announced that Weight Watchers ranks No. 1 among all other commercial diet programs for both short-term and long-term weight loss. It’s growing popularity and increasing membership attests to the fact that dieters believe in what Weight Watchers has to offer. However, some clever celebrity marketing featuring Jennifer Hudson, Charles Barkley and Jessica Simpson may contribute to its rise in popularity as well. In addition, weight Watchers features online advertisements on The Dr. Oz Show website, which adds significantly to its presence.
The primary problem Dr. Fuhrman sees with commercial weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers where calorie counting is the primary strategy toward losing weight is that these programs continue to foster eating a toxic diet that does nothing to eliminate the craving to eat more than people should. In fact,on a previous episode of The Dr. Oz Show and on his website he points out that these diets actually cause people to eat more of the wrong types of foods.
On The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Fuhrman discusses his idea of what a food pyramid should look like—and not just for dieters, but non-dieters as well when making food decisions that can not only result in weight loss, but could remove people’s dependency on prescription medications. A healthier body achieved with weight loss is his message about his healthy eating weight loss program.
