The 17 Day Diet Challenge
In January, The Doctors and Dr. Phil McGraw kicked off the 17 Day Diet Challenge. Team Doctors and Team Dr. Phil followed the Cycle plan in the 17 Day Diet created by Dr. Mike Moreno.
Team Dr. Phil came out on top after Cycle 1 and Cycle 2. Today, the challengers return for their final weigh-in.
All of the Challengers improved their health dramatically. Best friends Kristina and Amanda lost a combined 42 inches from their waists, hips and thighs. Joni's cholesterol dropped 34 total points, Bekki's blood pressure went from 136/88 to 117/78 and Clint's percentage of body fat dropped from 35 percent to 27 percent. The combined total weight loss for both teams was an amazing 379 pounds!
"I'm so proud of this group," Dr. Mike says of all the contestants. "Not only do they look amazing, but the changes in their health that they've gotten in 51 days — and I want to emphasize that — I couldn't be more proud of you guys."

Elizabeth Taylor's Death
Famed actress and Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor died on March 23, after being hospitalized with congestive heart failure. Eighty million Americans suffer from cardiovascular disease, making it the number one killer of both men and women. Females are two times more likely than males to die from a heart attack, and warning signs are often more difficult to detect in women than in men.
Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, untreated diabetes, obesity, stress and lack of regular exercise.
Typical Heart Attack Symptoms:
• Chest pain
• Upper body pain
• Shortness of breath
• Stomach pain
• Cold sweats
Overlooked Heart Attack Symptoms:
• Abdominal pain or nausea
• Neck or jaw pain
