Chaz Bono Reveals His Incredible Weight-Loss Transformation After The Doctors Helped Get Him On A Healthy Regimen Last Year

(Hollywood, CA - Sept. 6, 2013) - The Emmy(R) Award-winning daytime talk show The Doctors returns on Monday, September 9 for its sixth season offering the latest in health and wellness information in an entertaining and engaging fashion. Joining the team of co-hosts this season are three new medical experts who will serve as recurring co-hosts: urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman, board-certified family medicine physician and sexologist Dr. Rachael Ross and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist Dr. Ian K. Smith.

The premiere week also features an exclusive interview with Chaz Bono on Wednesday, September 11. Bono returns to the show to reveal his incredible weight-loss transformation after The Doctors helped get him started on a new healthy regimen last November. When he first visited the show last year, Bono weighed 250 pounds, with dangerously high cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels, all of which are now in a healthier range. Drs. Stork and Ordon sit down with the activist and writer, to talk about the challenges and milestones in his journey to take control of his health and drop the excess weight after a life-long struggle with his body image.

The season six premiere episode on September 9 features some of the craziest health news from around the world, from breast milk-flavored lollipops, to the 13-pound baby delivered naturally, and apartments where your rent is determined by your weight. The Doctors also speak to a pregnant woman who was struck by lightning and a young girl who fought cancer by undergoing a radical surgery which removed part of her leg and turned her foot into a knee.

The Doctors has been heralded for providing viewers with entertaining and easily-digestible information that is essential to health and well-being. The show will continue its signature segments, including "TMI Tuesday," featuring stories and topics normally too embarrassing for discussion, and the "Friday News Feed," where the doctors and their guests discuss the latest health news and trends from around the world.

"The hallmark of the show's success is our ability to deliver valuable, trustworthy and thought-provoking health and wellness information," said executive producer Carla Pennington. "Our loyal viewers will see a continuation of that commitment in the new season. We want to empower people to take action and make the best decisions when it comes to their health."

The Doctors premiere week will also feature the following segments:

· "Detecting Diseases Before They Strike" -- The Doctors discuss the importance of early detection of diseases, including the incredible story of Tarek El Moussa from HGTV's "Flip or Flop" who found out he had thyroid cancer when a viewer contacted him after noticing a lump on his throat.

· "New FDA Drug For Weight Loss" - Dr. Berman and special guest Dr. Sharon Orrange engage in a vigorous debate about the health implications and safety of the new FDA-approved drug for weight loss, Qsymia.

· "Tamera Mowry-Housley's Big Secret Revealed" - Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley visits the show for the Friday Newsfeed and brings some news of her own, as she makes a very personal announcement and later asks The Doctors for advice.

· "Is Fashion Glorifying Drug Abuse?" - The Doctors discuss a new line of clothes featuring the names of controversial prescription drugs. Does it glorify drug abuse, or is it simply an issue of free speech? One retailer defends their choice to sell the clothing line and The Doctors respond.
