What can you do to enhance your body, mind and spirit that will improve your life without costing big bucks or large chunks of time? To answer that question, Dr. Mehmet Oz invited two of the most fit and fabulous women in the nation to his Feb. 28 talk show: "The Biggest Loser" trainer and best-selling health book author Jillian Michaels and First Lady Michelle Obama. What these women share with Dr. Oz: A belief that to become truly healthy, a whole body approach is required, incorporating fitness, nutrition and a positive attitude:
- The First Lady has become famed for her advocacy for nutrition and fitness for the entire family, and her appearance on "The Dr. Oz Show" marks the third anniversary of her "Let's Move!" campaign. She wants to improve the health of children by improving school lunches, and Michelle Obama emphasizes the importance of eating natural, unprocessed foods. She's created a White House garden and sought to spread the spiritual and physical benefits of gardening in an inspiring book, "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America" (click here to get it now).
- Jillian sometimes is called the "tough as nails" trainer. But her tough exterior shields a soft heart, and she wants to help overweight people learn to love themselves for who they are, and to care for themselves by eating right and exercising. Although she's written many books, Jillian has created what she considers her masterpiece, comprising all her knowledge on living a healthy, happy life, entitled "Slim for Life: My Insider Secrets to Simple, Fast, and Lasting Weight Loss" (click here to get it now). Holistic eating tip from Jillian: "Buy whole fruits and vegetables – and go organic if you can! Opt for thick-skinned items like oranges, bananas, eggplants, avocados and melons."
