The Doctors: Season 7 Premiere + Dr. Sears Weight Loss
The Doctors kicked off season 7 by saying they were excited for the new season and have three goals in mind for each episode this year. They want to make everyone at home laugh, cry, and learn. Dr. Travis Stork shared his excitement for what’s to come this season, and then shared that all of the guests on the show were in for a big surprise.
He also shared that when “Jimbo” or Dr. Sears showed up after summer break, they noticed how great he looked due to his weight loss. Dr. Jim Sears, a pediatrician, said he decided over the summer he was going to make some changes, and ended up losing about 23 pounds “so far.” Dr. Stork said “you look so boyish” and claimed it was a compliment. Dr. Stork said while they were on the topic of weight loss, why not go ahead and kick off the show with yet another incredible weight loss story.
The Drs: Woman’s Weight Loss Journey
They played a clip of a woman who explained that her entire life she was always a chubby girl. She said she was a size 10 “when all of the other girls were size 2s” and said she would always hear all of the other girls say, “oh, but you have such a pretty face.” She said she started making fun of herself and said “the f word” was her favorite word: fat. She said she’s tried everything from low-carb meals to “the starvation diet” but she gained back the weight plus 15 pounds.
She said her honeymoon was a great example because she lost a ton of weight and looked amazing on her wedding day, but then went on a two-week vacation and gained 25 pounds. She explained that she was put on bed rest early on when she was pregnant with her daughter and gained a lot of weight then as well. She said her heaviest post-baby weight was 278 pounds and she’s just 5’3″. She said she felt as if she was walking around in a haze and was “inadvertently killing herself with food.”
The Drs: Woman Lost 150 Pounds in 11 Months
She said her daughter was her biggest inspiration and after losing her mom while in college, she knew she she wanted to live longer so that she could be around to meet her grandkids, which is something her mother never got to do.
She started doing her own research and came across a clean-eating cookbook. She explained that the very first week she only gave up her diet sodas and lost 10 pounds in one week. She said that was the moment when it all made sense. She said she needed to “bring her body back to nature and let nature do the rest of the work.”
She lost over 150 pounds, almost half her body weight, in just 11 months. Incredible!
The Drs: Weightloss Journey + Put Down Diet Soda, Pick Up Water
Audrey walked out and showed off her incredible post-weight-loss body and Dr. Ross shared that she was so happy and impressed that she not only looked so great, but lost the weight the healthy way.
Audrey said when she changed her diet and started eating between 1200 and 1500 calories a day, the weight just “flew off.” She said, “it’s almost like when you start feeding your body what it really truly wants, not just what you’re craving, it turns off those hunger receptors and you’re not hungry anymore.”
She said if there’s one tip she can give all the women out there, it’s to put down the diet soda and pick up water.
The Doctors: Trip To Belize
Dr. Stork said now that Audrey is bikini-ready, it may be time for her to experience a little bit of paradise. She received two round-trip tickets from the Belize tourism board. She was given a four-night stay, snorkeling trip, and vacation to paradise that she will remember for a lifetime.
Audrey said she was going to take her incredible husband with her to Belize.
