Dr. Mehmet Oz, cardiac surgeon, New York Times bestselling author and host of " The Dr. Oz Show" stopped by Studio H NOT to talk turkey -- or chicken, or beef -- with Robin Meade. The verbiage in this visit was all vegetarian.
Dr. Oz says there are some big benefits to people who go vegetarian -- longer lifespans, for example. But he also warns that you'll need to replace some of the vitamins and minerals you'll lose if you stop eating meat, iron and B-12 among them.
Robin says when she started eating a vegetarian diet she actually gained weight. Dr. Oz says that to avoid that, vegetarians need to watch their carbohydrate intake and make sure they're getting enough protein.
