Dr. Oz Offers Holiday Health Tips on CRN’s “Distraction” Podcast

HAMDEN, CT –  Popular TV personality and author Dr. Mehmet Oz provides sound advice Tuesday on how to stay healthy during the upcoming holiday season as a guest of Dr. Ned Hallowell on CRN International’s “Distraction” podcast.

“Americans over the next two months will gain all the weight they are going to gain for the entire year,” said Dr. Oz, host of The Dr. Oz Show and once named by Fortune magazine as one of the 75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century. He says on the podcast that people should have “free rein” on the holidays themselves, but he offers some ideas on how to compensate.

“People don’t sleep enough during the holidays,” says Dr. Oz on the podcast, recommending that they try to get at least an extra half hour of sleep every night.

Also, “If you are going to an event or banquet, eat before you go,” says Dr. Oz. “It sounds counterintuitive, but it removes you from the hedonistic desire to eat everything that’s there.”

Hear the entire interview and more holiday tips from Dr. Oz, who says he asks his family not to buy him gifts and indicates that each year he writes his wife a poem instead.

The “Distraction” podcast was created by CRN International’s Collisions division to help people cope and thrive in our crazy-busy, 24/7 modern world.

Dr. Hallowell is a child and adult psychiatrist, leading ADHD authority, New York Times bestselling author, and host of the “Distraction” podcast. Podcasts have been growing in popularity, generating loyal and dedicated followings, putting listeners in control to hear episodes when and where they like, and attracting advertisers recognizing the value of this captive audience.

CRN’s Collisions division has already developed several shows in addition to “Distraction:” “The Car and Driver Podcast,” with the editors of Car and Driver magazine, and “The Official Sasquatch! Festival Podcast,” providing coverage of the Live Nation music festival.
