Dr. Oz talked with Margaret and jason about CRP(C-reactive protein) or CRP appears to be correlated to heart disease risk. Both Jason's and Margaret's CRP was too high, it should be less than 3.

If in a bad marriage it can increase your chances of having a second heart attack, and weaken your immune system.

Steve The Unhealthiest American

Today Steve was back with Dr. Oz and with great results. Today he quit smoking and handed his cigarette's over to Dr. Oz.

Steve's weight went from 442 pounds to 425 LBS. Weight loss of 17 lbs.
Waist size -- 68 to 65
LDL Cholesterol 120 to 88
Glucose 120 to 82
B/P was 180/105 now it is 175/100
Neck size 22 to 19 1/2

Phase two of Steve's Diet Plan has 3 steps to maximize what is already working for him. The first step is to figure out how you can make some minor adjustments, and get more variety into your diets. Steve eats soy burgers every single day, today he was introduced to Salmon Burgers and Beet Burgers (recipes at the bottom of the page). Beet burgers helps with colon cancer, heart disease and stroke. The it moved to a dessert like rice pudding called Quinoa Fruit Pudding -- Quinoa is a whole grain, and it also has protein in it. Kristin kirkpatrick told him to have the right dessert, and the right portions.

Step two is to learn how to pair foods together to optimize the foods nutritional value. Learn how the Calcium in low fat yogurt helps with the fat absorption with being paired up with a cheeseburger. Steve said it wasn't too bad backing off from eating red meats.

Step three for Steve is learning to read labels -- instead of obsessing about how many fats and how many calories and carbs in products you need to be able to look that ingredient label and see what is in that food product before you look at the numbers.

Steve's favourite salad dressing was Asian Sesame with Ginger and Soy, full of sugar and corn syrup. Dr. Oz says make your own salad dressing.

Dr. Oz Incontinence And Bladder Problems

The number 1 health secret women keep is a humiliating condition that most people think affects older people, but this is not true says Dr. oz. Incontinence can happen to anyone regardless of age or gender. Ursula joined Dr. Oz on stage today and walked through the things that can cause Incontinence, as to where we usually just say that Incontinence is due to a weak bladder. Dr. oz says there are two primary things that cause bladder problems. One is the muscles around the bladder get weak, second is the nerves don't work the way they are supposed to, and a lot of times they both occur together. Things such as being over weight can worsen it, having a baby. In the video Dr. Oz tells us what works to help with urinary Incontinence. Urinary Incontinence often happens because we have issues on how we deal with the amount of left as a reserve in our bladder, and how our muscles get weak, and we leak urine.

The most common reason people have Incontinence is called Stress Incontinence
