Lose 10 Pounds in 1 Month If you are a fan of Dr. Oz, you have probably already heard about his “May Diet” where he promises 10 pounds of weight loss in just one month.

I did 80% healthy and clean, and 20% whatever I wanted” -Tamera Mowry-Housley The celeb currently weighs 127 pounds, which is 3 pounds less than her pre-pregnancy weight.
