- YOU: STAYING YOUNG Will Be Featured on Two Episodes of the Oprah Winfrey

Show on November 1 and November 5 -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- It's common knowledge that the food we eat has a direct effect our waistlines, but how aware are we that a poor diet, lack of exercise, high stress levels and poor quality of sleep actually impact our body's physical age? Discovery Health's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Dr. Michael Roizen help two overweight, stressed-out New Yorkers dramatically reverse the aging process by taking care of their bodies in YOU: STAYING YOUNG, which premieres Thursday, November 1, at 10 PM (ET/PT) on Discovery Health.

Imagine having a full-body, life-size cardboard cutout of yourself propped up on a New York City sidewalk for passers-by to examine and critique based on physical characteristics. This actually happens to Frank and Elaine, ages 52 and 45, who get a serious wake-up call when New Yorkers are challenged to guess their ages -- and routinely overestimate by several years. The grim pedestrian consensus is validated when Frank and Elaine undergo a personal fitness diagnosis with Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen -- based on their current waist measurements, body weights and body fat indexes, Frank is living in a 62-year- old body, and Elaine is living in a 53-year-old body.

In addition to compromising their physical appearance, Frank and Elaine's run-down bodies put them at elevated risk for serious conditions including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Drs. Oz and Roizen help them understand how common problems, such as Frank's sleep apnea and Elaine's emotional stress from 9/11, take a serious toll on their overall health. Luckily, two of America's top medical minds are on hand to provide easy-to-follow steps for addressing these and other everyday challenges to their physical well-being.

In YOU: STAYING YOUNG, viewers watch Frank and Elaine trade french fries and pizza for fruit, vegetables, fish and whole grains. After they spend 12 weeks of living a healthier lifestyle, Dr. Oz is thrilled to see that Frank and Elaine's waist measurements, body weight, body fat indexes and other vital statistics such as cholesterol and triglycerides have been greatly reduced -- and the best part: they're now living in bodies that are stronger, fitter and 10 years younger. The everyday changes outlined in YOU: STAYING YOUNG provide a real blueprint for an enhanced self-image and healthier lifestyle that could end up saving your life.

YOU: STAYING YOUNG is produced for Discovery Health by Discovery Studios. Robin Sestero and Wayne Barbin are executive producers for Discovery Studios, and Alon Orstein is executive producer for Discovery Health.

The latest Discovery Health special featuring Drs. Oz and Roizen, YOU: STAYING YOUNG, was inspired by the co-author duo's most recent book by the same title, the latest in their series of YOU books, which include YOU: The Smart Patient, YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: On a Diet.

In YOU: Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty (Free Press) Drs. Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Roizen show readers how achieve the vitality, energy, and strength to enjoy the long and vibrant lives that our biology offers us.
