EXCLUSIVE: Was Dr. Oz paid to hawk sham weight loss products? Consumers in class action lawsuit claim he's holding back documents that could prove he profited from promoting a diet supplement

  • Class action lawsuit filed against Oz last year claims 'all credible scientific evidence' proves tropical fruit Garcinia Cambogia does not work
  • Vera Woodward, leader of the class action, is demanding the TV doctor produce 'key documents' proving he was not paid to endorse products
  • Oz first promoted Garcinia Cambogia on his show in 2013 and interviewed a woman who said it helped her lose 10 pounds in four months
  • He did not advertise a specific brand but the lawsuit singles out supplement seller Labrada, which calls it a 'fat loss aid'
  • In 2014 Oz appeared before a congressional hearing for promoting Garcinia Cambogia and other products as 'miracle pills'

A class action lawsuit against Dr Mehmet Oz for saying a supplement was a 'revolutionary fat buster with no exercise, no diet, no effort' are claiming he's not turning over key documents that could prove he was paid to endorse products on air.

The case alleges that 'all credible scientific evidence' proves the supplement, which contains Garcinia Cambogia, doesn't work.

Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit that has been claimed to aid weight loss by burning fat quicker and curbing appetite.

Vera Woodward, who led the class action, accused Oz of tricking his viewers into buying the supplements, which are sold by a former bodybuilding champ Lee Labrada.

The case seeks damages from the celebrity television doctor and Oprah's Harpo Productions, which produces his show.

According to court documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, Woodward is now heading back to court, demanding Oz hand over 'key documents' revealing his true 'financial motives' - which she says he is 'withholding'.

Dr Oz first promoted supplements containing Garcinia Cambogia in a 2013 show in which it was called the 'most exciting breakthrough in natural weight loss today'.

Garcinia Cambogia was touted as a pill that could help you shed pounds with 'no effort', and Oz brought on a woman who said it helped her lose 10lb in four months.

The television host did not advertise a specific supplement brand on the episode, but the suit claims that his promotion caused sales of Garcinia Cambogia to skyrocket.

This isn't the first time Garcinia Cambogia has landed Dr Oz in hot water.

In 2014 Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon whose television career first began on The Oprah Winfrey Show, appeared before a congressional hearing for praising Garcinia Cambogia, green coffee extract and raspberry ketone as weight-loss aids.

Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, the chairman of the Senate's consumer protection panel, scolded Oz for promoting magic pills.

'I get that you do a lot of good on your show,' she said during the hearing. 'But I don't get why you need to say this stuff because you know it's not true.

14 Numerous studies document the safety profile of the calcium-potassium double salt of 60% HCA preparation (HCA-SX), as well as its bioavailability and efficacy in helping patients attain a healthy body weight.

When you have this amazing megaphone, why would you cheapen your show?'

'The scientific community is almost monolithic against you in terms of the efficacy of the three products you called miracles,' she continued.

Multiple studies have concluded that Garcinia Cambioga did not noticeably help people lose weight any more than a placebo pill.

A 2013 study found that although Garcinia extract was safe to use, its effectiveness against obesity remained unproven in 'larger-scale and longer-term clinical trials'.

Oz agreed that his language about the supplements had been 'flowery' but said he believes the products can be short-term crutches and that he even gives them to his family.

'I recognize they don't have the scientific muster to present as fact but nevertheless I would give my audience the advice I give my family all the time,' he said.

Oz reiterated that he never endorsed specific supplements and said he would publish a list of specific products he believed would help Americans lose weight.

In 2015, a group of ten doctors sent a letter to Columbia University urging that Oz lose his faculty institution at the prestigious Ivy League university, citing his promotion of 'miracle' weight-loss aids.

'Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine,' the letter read.

It added that Oz had 'misled and endangered' the public by 'promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain'.

The university responded that it upheld Oz's right to 'freedom of expression' and that he would not be removed from the faculty.

The ultimate quit sugar handbook: breakfast

By Sarah Wilson 00:01 GMT 16 Feb 2014, updated 00:02 GMT 16 Feb 2014

The biggest dilemma for anyone quitting sugar is what to eat for breakfast, because most starch-based ‘breakfast foods’ are laden with sugar (a lot of it hidden). You have to be careful with this first meal of the day. Some so-called healthy mueslis (even officially approved ones) contain more sugar than Coco Pops! And as we know, fruit juice can contain more sugar than canned colas. I no longer hold to the idea that my first meal of the day should be shaken from a box. See below for ideas…

A brilliant beginning…

No one has ever said you have to have cereal or fruit for breakfast, so get imaginative. The trick is to include healthy fats and protein in each meal. Since quitting sugar, my breakfast is now all about eggs, cheese, yoghurt, bacon, coconut and nuts, along with a lot of vegetables and a little low-sugar fruit, such as berries. Here are some simple ideas you can play with to get you started.

♥ Avocado and cheese toasties (I love the way avocado goes soft and gooey when heated). Or try mashed avocado spread on toast with a scattering of pumpkin seeds.

♥ Eggs poached, scrambled or boiled, with ham, greens, toast.

♥ Sugar-free (and fruit-free) muesli. There is a range on the market these days. Or try my Coco-Nutty Granola (seebelow).

♥ Porridge ‘sweetened’ with a little coconut milk and cinnamon, or with yoghurt and nuts.

♥ Cream cheese or coconut cream and frozen berries mushed in a cup.

♥ Home-made smoothies either coconut- or yoghurt-based, or using almond milk. Make them green-based for the first six weeks, after which you can experiment with low-fructose fruits. See the Choc Chip and Mint Whip on page 15.

♥ Buckwheat groats (‘buckinis’), coconut (flakes or desiccated) and pumpkin seeds (or whatever nuts or seeds you have in the cupboard) toasted in a nonstick pan, then sprinkled over yoghurt and mushed with either cinnamon or raw cacao powder and/or a drizzle of macadamia oil.

♥ Millet toast with cashew or almond spread, or tahini.

Leftover veggies tossed in a hot pan with an egg scrambled through.

♥ Canned tuna mixed with steamed frozen peas and chopped courgettes, and some finely chopped spring onions and capers.

♥ Chunk of feta with some chopped tomato, olives, olive oil and sardines, Greek style.

♥ My sardine chicory boats – I eat these for breakfast on a weekly basis! Mash grilled fresh sardines with some parsley, chilli and lemon. Serve on chicory leaves with a dollop of cream cheese.

splash of milk or cream

3 tbsp Kale Pesto (see my 'Crowd out the bad' page) or other pesto

toast, halved cherry tomatoes, slices of grilled ham, to serve

♥ Use a fork to lightly mix the eggs, salt and milk or cream in a small bowl – not too much as you want to see a bit of yolk streaked through.

It is especially beneficial for women in reducing the risk of breast cancer.

Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat, then pour in the egg mixture. Once the eggs ‘take’ a little, gently fold and lift using a flat wooden spatula – don’t stir. Pause, then fold again.

♥ After a minute, add the pesto and fold a little more until the whole lot is just soft and still a bit runny (about another minute). Remove from the heat and let sit, then gently stir to ensure it is cooked through. Serve with toast, cherry tomato halves and a few slices of grilled ham.

MAKES ABOUT 425g (15oz)

Preheat the oven to 120C/100C fan/gas ⅓ and line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine 175g (6oz) coconut flakes with 250g (9oz) roughly chopped almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds (preferably activated; see page 22; you can use either one type or a mixture), 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 80g-100g (3oz-3½ oz) coconut oil or butter, melted, and 3 tbsp rice malt syrup. Spread evenly on the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden, turning halfway through the cooking time. I like to bake mine until quite dark – the darker it is, the crunchier. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then eat while it’s still crispy, with full-fat yoghurt.

The rice malt syrup in the recipe is optional – I personally don’t sweeten my granola at all. Perhaps make half a batch with the syrup, half without and see what you like. If you wish to add rolled oats, toss 200g (7oz) into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients, and add a little more oil and syrup.

Chia and quinoa parfait

70g (3oz) cooked quinoa

3 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp flaxseeds (linseeds)

375ml (13fl oz) milk or coconut milk (or the home-made almond milk opposite)

2 tsp raw cacao powder

125ml (4½ fl oz) full-fat unsweetened thick Greek-style yoghurt

handful of frozen berries, chopped, or stewed in their own juices

♥ You need to make these a couple of hours in advance.

♥ Mix the quinoa, chia seeds, flaxseeds, milk and cacao powder well, then put in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

♥ To serve, layer with the yoghurt and berries in a pretty glass. Get decorative!

Choc chip and mint whip

375ml (13fl oz) almond milk without added sugar (for

home-made see right)

1 small ripe avocado

large handful of mint leaves

3 tbsp organic whey-based protein powder (optional)

2 tbsp green powder for example Vital Greens (optional)

1-2 generous pinches powdered stevia, to taste

small handful of ice cubes

2 tbsp cacao nibs

♥ Throw all the ingredients, except the cacao nibs, into a blender and blend until smooth. Toss in the nibs and blend for an extra few pulses.


Shop-bought almond milk can be expensive and often contains added sugar. I always make my own, and it’s so quick and simple. You can also do the same with cashews for cashew milk. Boil 750ml (26fl oz) water and allow to cool slightly. Blend in a powerful blender with 125g (4½ oz) blanched or soaked (overnight) almonds until smooth.

How can I Access their page again to reread the contract?

Pass through a sieve. I reserve the pulp for making dairy-free ice cream (see my book). You can also allow the pulp to dry completely and use it to replace ground almonds in baking recipes.

Fun pancakes, fab toppings

Whisk 2 eggs and combine with 1 x 400ml can coconut milk and 2 tbsp coconut oil or melted butter. Stir in 30g (1¼ oz) coconut flour, 100g (3½ oz) buckwheat flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 50g (2oz) shredded coconut and a pinch of salt. Melt a generous dollop of butter or coconut oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Pour in some batter. The mixture will make 4-6 large pancakes or 8-12 smaller ones. When the surface starts to bubble, flip and cook the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used.


Combine 120g (4½ oz) self-raising flour, 1 egg, 250ml (9fl oz) milk and 75g (3oz) powdered stevia. Peel and grate an apple and stir in gently. Melt some butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Spoon in 5 tbsp batter. When the surface starts to bubble, flip and cook on the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used (you should get 8-12).

Sift together 75g (3oz) buckwheat flour and 75g (3oz) plain wheat flour and ¼ tsp sea salt. The plain wheat flour improves the texture but for gluten-free galettes use 150g (5oz) buckwheat flour alone. Make a small well in the centre. Whisk 1 egg and 250ml (9fl oz) milk together in a small bowl, then pour into the well. Beat into a smooth batter the consistency of thick cream. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Remove batter from the fridge and set aside for 20 minutes.

Stir, adding 1-2 tbsp water if necessary. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly grease the entire base of the pan with melted butter. Add a small ladleful of batter and quickly swirl it around so you have a very thin layer covering the whole of the pan. Use a palette knife or an egg slice to spread out the mixture. Cook for 1 minute or until the galette comes away easily from the pan when you shake it. Flip the galette over and cook for 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter. Makes 4-6.

♥ Serve with a cube or two of home-made coconut butter (see my 'When cravings hit' page) on top and let it melt.

♥ Dollop on a sauce made from frozen berries, flavoured with orange zest, rice malt syrup, fresh ginger, cinnamon and star anise and gently heated through.

♥ Layer pancakes with grated apple, cream cheese and walnuts and a drizzle of rice malt syrup.

♥ Make a spiced pumpkin butter (recipe in my book) and pour over, then sprinkle on some pecans.

♥ Fold a slice of ham and some grated gruyère into buckwheat galettes and heat in a frying pan until the cheese melts. Frenchie chic!
