Why Dr. Oz Tells Overweight Men - Lose 35 Pounds For 1 Inch Gain
If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know I am a big fan of Oprah Winfrey.
I love all of her shows but really enjoy when Dr. Oz is on the show. Dr. Oz is an amazing healer and he offers practical, yet down to earth advice, for both men and women.
Recently I caught up with some taped Oprah shows. I was sad to see that Dr. Oz is going to be leaving Oprah to have his own show. Dr. Oz will be able to share his healing wisdom in more shows, which will help so many people.
Oprah, to officially say goodbye to Dr. Oz, had a special farewell show where she showed some of the best clips of the Dr. Oz shows over the years.
One of the most interesting clips of Dr. Oz on Oprah's show was when he told Oprah back in 2006 that overweight men who lose 35 pounds of fat will gain one inch in their penis length. When Dr. Oz told Oprah that little fact, it caused quite a stir in the audience.
It also seemed to have a big impact on men, at least near Chicago, which Oprah demonstrated.
Oprah showed a tape of Dr. Aaron Epstein, M.D., an emergency physician at Lake Forest Hospital in Lake Forest Illinois. Dr. Epstein commented on Dr. Oz's comments about men who lost 30+ pounds would gain one inch in penis length.
Dr. Epstein said "when I'm working a Wednesday shift I could actually guess what the topic of the Oprah show was on Tuesday.:
He continued "for some reason overweight men starting to exercise and workout. We saw a rash of muscle strains and back pains and pulled groin muscles in the emergency department and I couldn't figure out why the change of heart all of a sudden. Then my wife told me she learned on the Dr. Oz show that week that men who lose 30 pounds of weight gain an inch in their penis size and I put it all together and it made sense."
Dr. Oz loved the tape from Dr. Aaron Epstein.
Related ED Topics
What else did Dr. Oz have to say on related topics? In previous shows on Oprah a man and woman called in to ask Dr. Oz about erectile dysfunction (ED).
The great doctor discussed the issues surrounding ED and pointed out that men who are suffering from sexual dysfunctions may actually be at risk for other major health issues including heart attack and stroke since dysfunction is usually tied to clogged arteries.
He also explained that smoking can be a cause of dysfunction in many men which was quite enlightening in a number of ways.
Do the advertised ED drugs really work? Dr. Oz said while they may work for some, for many men, they don't work at all and can actually cause additional performance and other health problems.
Handling Difficult Topics
Dr. Oz talked briefly about what it's like to handle difficult topics on Oprah's show. He said his experience on the show felt just like he was talking to family and that the staff and Oprah made him feel comfortable so he could cover difficult topics and know that people were going to come back for more.It is obvious Dr. Oz is going to be missed on Oprah's show after five years of regular appearances although it's great to know the great doctor will have his own show in The Fall of 2009.
