NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Plan is a year in the making designed after studying a prior plan combined with the results and feedback of some of the more than 2.5 million people who road-tested it over the past year. We've created the tools to give viewers the best results - including many easy to follow free on line tools such as recipes and shopping lists. No clubs. No fees. Just medically sound advice and the support needed to get through the plan.
Throughout January, viewers will be able to participate in plan segments that are part of the show, as well as, find information to download or print from www.doctoroz.com. This year's plan improves on last year's "Two Week Rapid Weight Loss Plan" which sampling revealed an average weight loss of about nine pounds. After feedback from participants, various barriers to success have been identified. The Total 10 Plan now allows a cup of coffee. Also, this year's plan features a greater variety of foods to eat and more protein options. And the best part, the plan allows you to eat all day long.
The "Total 10" name is an outgrowth of viewers wanting to look and feel like a "10" in 2015. The first 10 days of programming starts on the 5th of January. Every day for 10 days, new segments will focus on each part of the plan – from shopping lists to how to boost your protein to breakfast ideas to kicking the sugar cravings to surviving the weekend. It concludes with a maintenance plan to help keep the weight off long-term.
"We had several seasons to look at when we tried to determine which weight loss methods worked, with last year's plan being the most successful and having the highest number of participants," said Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of "The Dr. Oz Show". "We took real suggestions from real viewers about what worked for them and combined it with what our team knew worked, while eliminating as many barriers to success as we could. The result is what I believe to be the single most efficient and productive weight loss plan a person can engage."
The Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Plan is designed to kick-start a weight loss routine and give viewers the motivation they need to lose pounds fast.
