Today's the Doctors: Don't Wait, Lose Weight!
Are you always waiting for the perfect moment to do something? Did you know there’s never a “perfect” moment? We’ve all fallen to procrastination at one time or another, and today on the Doctors we discuss beating procrastination to lose weight and fight our bad habits. Catch the liveliet updates only here on Nerdles News for Nerds!
Our first topic for today touches on an anti-prejudice pill. According to an Oxford University study, a beta blocker like a propranolol pill, may lower “implicit” racial attitudes. since beta blockers slow our heart rate, blood pressure, etc., the theory is people may be less stressed so they’ll be less inclined to be prejudiced, too.
Up next, the Doctors discuss the rumors about Ashley Judd getting plastic surgery. It seems like her face has gotten quite puffier from a recent media event and some are speculating that she’s gotten some work done. Check out the photo. what do you think? Ashley Judd and her representatives say that the rumor isn’t true, and that rather, Ms. Judd has been battling a serious infection and flu. As for the Doctors, they analyze the photo and conclude that maybe she’s just gained some weight. if anything, we should just give Ashley the benefit of the doubt and let her be.
Did she or didn't she, get plastic surgery?
Now on the show, the Doctors feature a woman addicted to the color pink. our guest today has a complete addiction to pink – everything in her home is pink, even her dog! in fact, she tries to even eat pink but she says that’s quite tough to do. the Doctors say her addiction is so bad either. the color pink can be a stress-reliever, and there are even pink foods that are quite healthy like pomegranates, grape fruit, meat, and even pink wine! that sounds like a complete meal to me.
Back from a break, we have a guest, Christie, who’s concerned about all the fine lines and deep wrinkles on her skin. She never took care of her skin when she was younger so now she’s paying for it – she has melasma, crows feet, chicken skin, and others. Fortunately, our doctors have hooked her up with a miracle peel Christie can do from home. Check out the before-and-after shots in the photo.

Do you constantly twist and pull your hair? That’s a bad habit that both damages your hair and a sign of anxiety disorder (which can also lead to OCD, eating disorders, etc.). in fact, this is a true medical condition called trichotillomania.
Up next, we have another story about a woman named Catherine who is addictied to nicotine gum. She only smoked for two years, but has been chewing nicotine gum for over four years. She asks the Doctors for help, and they our guest to the best hypnotist in the country, Tom Silver. he puts her in a receptive state of hypnosis so that we can get rid of her bad habit and “install” a new program of thinking in her subconscious. does it work? I’m quite doubtful from the video, but on the show, Catherine says it was a “positive” experience.
Is it possible for a person to NEVER feel full? Scientists have found what they call a “gluttony” gene that can prevent people from ever feeling satisfied when they eat. the Doctors now feature a story about Charles D’Angelo who used to weigh 360 pounds. his stomach used to be so large that when he sat down, his stomach would obscure his view of the TV. but in just two years, he lost 160 pounds of fat. his motto is: “Take charge.” Check out his book called, “think and Grow thin.” his biggest secret? It’s all about your mindset. the Doctors sent him to help fan named Lulu to help her get ready for her wedding. She has a real problem with controlling her bad food habits. She likes pizza, burgers, etc. When she finally meets Charles, she’s in for a shocker. he completely “cleanses” her kitchen. he kicks out the cola – there’s 10 teaspoons of sugar in just ONE can of soda. Lulu now guests on the show, and she admits that she’s now finally ready to kick her bad eating habits and change her mindset. our doctors remind her (and us, too) that your goal shouldn’t just be for a wedding or special occassion. rather, it should be a life long goal.

Mob Wives star Renee Graziano now guests on the show to talk about a plastic surgery experience that nearly killed her. in her first surgery, the doctor suggested quite a few things to get done – tighten up some skin here and there, etc. but the surgery went wrong. She was put under anesthesia for too long, and when she finally woke up and sat up, an incision in her back burst open. She lost over 6 pints of blood, and had to stay in the hospital for about 6 months. Fortunately, she did her research and found a skilled and respectable surgeon, Dr. Micheal Fiorillo, to fix her last doctors mistakes. She’s now getting corrective surgery on the wound on her back, and return some padding over the spinal bone that was exposed. Nonetheless, our doctors points that despite all that’s happened to her, she still looks pretty good.
When a surgery goes wrong, TV personalities feel the pain, too.
Allergy Solutions from Allegra are next. We should clean our homes regularly to avoid dust colleting and irritating us. if we go outside, make sure to check out the pollen levels to avoid our allergies acting up. Lastly, during the worst of our allergy season, let’s take a anti-histamine to help prevent and relieve our allery symptoms.
