get healthy with dr. oz's 6-month plan

a note from
Dr. Oz

En español | As a physician, father, author, and host of "The Dr. Oz Show," I know what it means to be busy. The truth is, if you can't find the time to get healthy, you're not going to be around as long as your kids and grandkids would like. Cancer doesn't kill most of us: Lack of exercise and a poor diet do.


Follow this 6-Month Plan, and work out with the exercise videos below, and you'll be on your way to living the best life possible for as long as possible.
