The Doctors: What Biggest Loser Contestants Eat

The Biggest Loser is NBC’s hit show that has now been on the air for 17 seasons, helping hundreds of people lose a lot of weight. One of the nutritionists and chefs behind the show, author of “A Small Guide to Losing Big,” Cheryl Forberg joined the show. She shared some examples of typical meals eaten at the Biggest Loser ranch, beginning with a spinach salad made with smoked turkey, arugula, fresh tangerines, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. She will typically top it with pistachios because they add a bit of saltiness and help you feel full.

Another food she likes to serve is quinoa, explaining that one dish combines the healthy grain with mint, basil, and balsamic vinegar because it’s a great whole grain and a source of protein. She suggested adding chicken, and said you can eat it cold or hot! Dessert isn’t entirely off limits! She suggested that if you’re trying to eat healthy, try the natural sweetness of a whole piece of fruit as a dessert. If you have some time, you could also make a sweet dessert out of light coconut water, cocoa powder, agave nectar, and vanilla served with fresh berries. It’s like a healthier version of chocolate pudding!

The Doctors: Relief For Teen With Severe Migraines

A 15-year-old named Emilie shared her migraine struggle with The Doctors last season. They learned about the Reed Procedure, which is a neurostimulator implant that effectively stops some headaches, while watching The Doctors. She went to the trial and was thrilled that she experienced no head pain, so they applied for the permanent procedure, only to find out at the last minute that she couldn’t have it because insurance wouldn’t cover it. That meant the procedure would cost $50-60,000, but Dr Reed offered to cover Emilie’s procedure at no cost.

The Doctors: Reed Procedure For Migraine Sufferer

Dr Kelly Will, a pain management specialist at the Reed Center, was thrilled to help Emilie get back to a normal life by relieving her pain with the permanent implant. The implant was placed at the back of Emilie’s neck, right underneath her hairline. But the biggest question of all: did it work? Emilie joined the show almost a year after the procedure and said she was doing “great!” Dr Kenneth Reed explained that within a day of the procedure, people can travel and can return to work or school within a week. Six weeks later the patient has no restrictions. Dr Reed explained that the implant isn’t for everyone, and should be considered the last step, not the first. Medications or lifestyle changes should be made first. If you’re suffering from two or more migraines a week and haven’t been able to find relief, the procedure could be right for you.

The Doctors: DW18 Deadlist Drug Trend In Decades

In early April, The Doctors reported on a number of deaths in northern California that were linked to a street drug containing lethal amounts of a painkiller called fentanyl. The DEA believes the pills are being made in China and smuggled into the U.S. through the Mexican border. Now, federal agents have arrested a man in Florida for importing the painkiller and possessing a painkiller made in the 80’s called W18. According to officials, W18 is a “synthetic opiate like fentanyl that produces a heroin-like high, but 100 times more powerful than fentanyl and 10,000 times more powerful than morphine.”

Experts warn that W18 is the deadliest drug trend in the past 30 years.

The Doctors: Oil-Blocking Sheets For Greasy Hair

For their prescription of the day, The Doctors explained that oil-blocking sheets meant for your face can also be used to improve greasy hair.
