10 Wise Weight Rules
Thou shalt ward off the weight with Dr. Oz’s 10 commandments for weight loss, with the 10 new rules to fight fat.

1. Thou Shalt Not Wear Pants that Stretch - Your clothing is your early-warning system for weight gain. When it’s getting hard to snap your jeans, you know it’s time to be vigilant. Wearing stretchy clothes allows you to live in ignorance of how your body is growing, making it easier to pack on pounds without knowing it.

2. Thou Shalt Not Keep Bad Clothes in Your Closet - When you keep the clothes you wore at an unhealthy weight, it gives you a back-up plan if the pounds don’t come off. Instead, force yourself to stay on track by 86ing your “fat pants.” Send those fats pants, and clothes that are too big for you to Charities.

3. Thou Shalt Not Eat Meat That Walks on Four Legs More Than Once a Week - Meat that comes from an animal with 4 legs is higher in saturated fat (the unhealthy kind) than that which comes from 2-legged animals such as chickens, or animals with no legs, like fish. Dr Oz says women who eat large amounts of red meat more than once a week have a 50% higher chance of dying from heart disease and have higher cancer rates.

4. Thou Shalt Not Graze - Plan your meal before you open the refrigerator, get what you need, and close the door. Opening it throughout the day leads to impulsive choices and overeating.

5. Thou Shalt Not Eat After 7:30pm - When you eat late at night you are probably eating in front of the TV, and not paying attention to how much you’re putting in your mouth and you’re more likely to pick high-calorie snacks. Close the Kitchen!

6. Thou Shalt Not Pile Food More than 1 Inch High or Within 2 Inches of the Plate Edge - Larger portions equal more calories. Dr Oz always recommends using a 9 inch plate.

7. Thou Shalt Not Chew Food Less than 20 Times Per Bite - Chewing helps your body realize that you are eating, prompting it to create a sensation of fullness at the appropriate time. When you don’t chew enough, and you woof it down you get ahead of that process, eating well past when you are actually satisfied.

8. Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Plate - By snacking and picking at others plates and snacks, you will add on 1,000 calories easy.

9. Thou Shalt Not Carry Small Bills - impulsive, calorie-loaded afternoon slip ups at the vending machines.

10. Thou Shalt Not Eat While Standing Up - Eating sitting down enables you to be aware of what you’re eating and eat it slowly so that your body can tell you your full before it’s too late.

Dr Oz How To Do A Self Breast Exam

Are you doing your breast self-exam correctly? Dr oz says a thorough breast self-exam should be done once a month; spend 8 minutes on each breast. Find out what to look for and how to do it right with this step-by-step lesson from Dr. Oz and Dr. Donnica Moore.

Cancer Survivor Sheila joins Dr Oz today. Sheila had undergone a double mastectomy, after finding a lump in her breast, and says that if she would have taken the time to do a self breast exam 6 months to a year earlier she would have found it.

The Basic Breast-Exam

Step 1: Examine breasts in mirror for visual changes in the size and color of the breasts, particularly in the nipple area and the skin.

Step 2: Lay down with one hand above your head. With the other hand, start the exam all the way up by the collarbone and work your way over to the armpit. Move toward the nipple in an outward concentric pattern, using the pads of your 3 middle fingers. Repeat on the other breast.

Step 3: Lumps won’t feel perfectly round or smooth. They will feel irregular, hard and not moveable. Note any lumps and talk to your doctor.

Step 4: Gently, with your thumb and forefinger, check for nipple discharge by applying pressure at the 9-3 and 12-6 clock positions.

Dr Donnica Moore stresses the fact that you are to spend eight minutes on each breast, and to do it 5 days after your period, and menopausal women to do a breast exam the first of every month.

Dr Oz Ear Wax Facts

Protect your hearing and practice healthy hygiene with this Dr. Oz-approved alternative method to clean your ears, and get the wax out. Dr Oz says the way most people clean their ears is hazardous to your health.

Ear wax is normal; it's made from dead skin, sweat and oils which make it ear wax. Ear wax is good for you, the purpose of ear wax is they trap things flying, like bugs bacteria, the wax traps it. But excess ear wax can cause infections. It can trap water, and water makes a moist environment for bacteria to grow.

The right way to get wax out - 3 times a week take a little bit of baby oil(3 drops) leave your head tilted about a minute, then stand straight and the oil will push the wax out. Use nothing larger than your finger to get the wax out.

The wrong way is by using a Q-tip to get wax out of your ears. By putting the Q tip in you are just pushing the wax up to the ear drum, plus the chance of the Q tip going in too far and busting the ear drum.
