8:00 pm / 7:00 pm MT/PT: Dr. David Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan

Details

You can choose your health destiny. Effortless weight loss. Freedom from neurological disorders and other chronic conditions. Boundless energy. A radiant appearance. Sound sleep. A happy belly. A robust immune system. Relief from depression and anxiety. A sharp, fast-thinking brain. A great sense of self-confidence and well-being. A super-high quality of life. These are all terrific goals, and who wouldn't want to achieve them? But such monumental accomplishments don't come without hard work and sacrifices. You can't necessarily turn away from the standard American diet- bread, soda, OJ, sugar, cereal, muffins, bagels, processed foods-and embrace a totally gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle overnight. It takes commitment. It takes effort. But it's doable with the plan outlined in this program. More than a million people around the world have improved their health-physical, mental, and cognitive-thanks to Dr. Perlmutter's bestselling books, Grain Brain and Brain Maker. Now the time has come to bring these two forces together in a highly practical, step-by-step holistic lifestyle program. Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan. Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora. Food is a central component of the program, but so are other key aspects to achieving the best results: the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body. The program offers nutritional and health advice that's been validated over and over again in the scientific literature, but also more extensive science has emerged. Even the U.S. government has modified its dietary guidelines to reflect this research, backing away from endorsing low-fat, low-cholesterol diets. If you assume that this is just another diet that will test your willpower and resolve - it will disappoint you on that front. Dr. Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan gives you a jump-start to a healthy way of living that you will be able to sustain indefinitely.

8:00 pm / 7:00 pm MT/PT: Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You

Details

We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others.
