Are you inspired by John and Charise’s story? It’s not too late to join The Doctors 2010 Health Challenge!


Charise and Dan, married for more than 10 years, have struggled with their weight for years. At her heaviest, Charise, now 33, weighed 250 pounds and Dan, now 35, weighed 400 pounds and was on the brink of developing diabetes.

Over the years, the couple yo-yo dieted, but failed to keep the weight off. Finally, before their 10th wedding anniversary, they vowed to get healthy the right way. “I knew that when it was time to lose weight, we needed to do it together,” Charise says.

The couple changed their lifestyle, started eating healthily and exercising regularly, and shed more than 100 pounds each. Looking the best they had in years, Dan, at a svelte 160 pounds, and Charise, at a sexy 150 pounds, renewed their wedding vows.

E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork outlines>the dangers of yo-yo dieting and why it doesn’t work.
