Like many Americans, Frank and Elaine are not aging well. Frank, a 52-year-old part-time professional bowler, complains of routine aches and says he takes about 15 pills a day to combat high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Elaine has a stressful job and doesn't get any exercise. At home, they say they spend a lot of time on the couch and eat an unhealthy diet of fried, fatty foods.
Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen drop in on Frank and Elaine...right in the middle of one of those unhealthy mealswith a plan to change their lives.
First, Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen put Frank and Elaine through some tests to figure out exactly where their health stands. The results are far from good.
Both Frank and Elaine are in the danger zone. Frank has a 48-inch waist and Elaine has a 43 1/2-inch waist. Frank weighs 270 pounds and Elaine weighs 223. Elaine's body fat test score is 56. Frank's is even higher—68.2. "So of your 270 pounds, 184 pounds of them are fat," Dr. Oz says. "You've got a full-grown human being in you that's pure fat."
