He's won Emmy Awards for his popular talk show and written best-selling health books such as "YOU: The Owner's Manual: An Insider's Guide to the Body That Will Make You Healthier and Younger" and "YOU: On A Diet Revised Edition: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management" (click for details).

It's designed to provide you with 1,600 calories a day. You don't need to stress about counting calories or carbs, and you'll lose 10 pounds in just one month.

The magazine is a joint project of Dr. Oz and Hearst Magazines. It's available on newsstands nationwide. In addition, you can get it in digital format: Click here for information.
Dr. Oz has set a specific goal for the contents:
There’s an inextricable link between health and every area of our lives. I want this magazine to be the place for women to find information that enlightens them, but also delights them and emotionally connects with them, so they can make the best decisions to live full, happy and joyful lives.
Each issue of the magazine will open with “From the Heart,” a letter in which Dr. Oz shares his vision, personal anecdotes and scrapbook-style photos.
In addition to his “Ask Dr. Oz Anything” column answering readers’ most pressing health, nutrition and lifestyle queries, he weighs in with advice throughout the magazine on everything from the healthiest way to cook pasta to the best approach to a social hug. Each issue closes with a recurring column, “Dr. Oz’s Prescription,” an inspiring call to action for readers.
