Back to The Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

I’m pretty excited this morning. Yesterday, I spent a good part of the day on the phone with producers from The Dr. Oz Show. We were talking about the links between stress, cortisol, and belly fat – which I’ve written about in several of my books (see below).


Last year, I appeared on The Dr. Oz Show to talk about having low testosterone (which often accompanies high cortisol) can lead to exhaustion. That show featured my book, The Secret of Vigor, that educates about balancing cortisol/testosterone to help you feel better (with higher “vigor”). Since that show, I’ve written articles for Dr. Oz’s ShareCare website and consulted with producers on numerous segments related to nutrition and dietary supplements (you could say that I’m a huge fan of Dr. Oz and his mission of educating people about health).


This coming Monday, I’m heading back to NYC to be with Dr. Oz again!


On Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll film a show about cortisol and belly fat. The items that we’ll be discussing will include diet, exercise, supplements, and stress management techniques to help you control cortisol and lose stubborn belly fat.


I’m not sure when the show will air, but stay tuned to this blog for updates.


Here are the books that I’ll be bringing to the show (all related to stress, cortisol, belly fat, and vigor):

  • I write a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website
    or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it is a result of the sincerness communicated in
    the post I looked at. And on this article Back to The
    Dr. Oz Show | Shawn Talbott. I was actually moved enough to drop a commenta response ;
    ) I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list all of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
