Lisa Oz


Dr. Mehmet Oz’s wife, Lisa, has long been health-conscious. On a recent episode of The View, she mentioned that she’s been a vegetarian since she was 15 and that she cooks vegetarian meals for her family. She’s obviously having a positive influence: Her husband even convinced a guest on his show—a cowboy, no less—to go vegan. If you haven’t already done so, take the doctor’s—and his wife’s—advice and ditch meat, eggs, and dairy products.
