consulted with a number of other physicians

Taking the study a step further, Dr. Oz consulted with a number of other physicians and experts on diet and nutrition for their opinions about whether or not Yacon syrup promotes weight loss. What they had to say was possibly the most beneficial piece of information for viewers of The Dr. Oz Show that has never been addressed before―but should be: that many studies or claims of studies supporting a miracle pill or supplement for weight loss are not truly supported by rigorous scientific testing that proves or disproves purported benefits toward weight loss.
To put Yacon syrup to the test, Dr. Oz recruited 60 women to participate in a study by his staff where the women were followed for a 4-week period where they were instructed to eat one teaspoon of Yacon syrup with or before each meal. Furthermore, they were also instructed not to change their dieting or exercising habits during this period so that changes in their weight—if any―could be attributed to the Yacon syrup.
By the end of the 4-week long study period, 40 of the 60 women completed the study and yielded these results:
• 29 (73%) of the women lost weight
• 14 women lost five pounds or more
• Average weight loss was 2.9 pounds
• Average reduction in waist size was 1.9 inches
• Total weight lost among all the women was 153 pounds
• 27 (68%) recommended Yacon as a weight loss tool
