Adjust Your Eating

Monique says she’s concerned about her husband, Wendell’s, eating habits.


“I don’t think I’ve seen him eat a fruit or a vegetable in the past couple of months,” she says. “He just doesn’t eat them, but when he does, he makes them [unhealthy.]”


“I’m a meat and potatoes guy,” Dr. Travis says. “I want every meal to be the heartiest, most decadent foods. It’s just how I grew up, but you have to make adjustments.”

Dr. Lisa recommends starting every morning with a powerhouse smoothie, a mega combo of vegetables, fruit and protein that’s packed with essential nutrients.

“We’re not asking you to eat twigs and berries all day long,” Dr. Travis adds. “Having a shake like this every morning will fill you up with fiber, nutrients and goodness, and by doing that you’re not going to crave those bad things. It’s not about today, it’s not about tomorrow; it’s about 10 years from now.”

Smoking Solutions
Toni says she nags her husband, Russell, because he drinks up to eight cups of coffee per day, eats too much ice cream, lays around watching movies and smokes, despite suffering two heart attacks.

“When it comes to smoking cessation, it takes a team approach,” Dr. Travis says.

The Doctors, Tony and Russell make a deal: If Russell stops smoking, Toni will stop nagging and The Doctors will do their part to check up on Russell’s progress.
