Guest Bio: Ray Doustdar, CEO Buiced INC
Ray Ray Doustdar is the CEO of BUICED Inc., and the creator of the all new BUICED Liquid Multivitamin, as well as the curator of Everyday Juicer, a website dedicated to helping people add fresh vegetable juicing to their daily lifestyle.

Through fresh vegetable juicing, Ray was able to bring down his cholesterol from 234 to 168 (down 28%) by incorporating juicing into his daily lifestyle.

During this time, he discovered that although the leafy greens are packed with phyto-nutrients, they lack many essential vitamins and minerals.

He tried taking vitamins in pill form after each juice, but they upset his stomach. Then Ray learned liquid vitamins are more readily available for easy absorption, so he decided to solve his own problem and created BUICED to "boost his juice."
Diet vs. Exercise: Which Is MORE Important?
You've heard great results from co-workers and TV personalities and how they've lost 20 pounds by going on a specific diet. You've also seen your best friend progress after she's joined a gym and has sweated her butt off.

When you're trying to lose weight, the two major components your friends, family and doctors tell you to focus on is diet and exercise. However, can you do one without the other or are they a package deal?

When it comes to your health, it should never be a "diet versus exercising" game you play. These two go hand-in-hand and are essential for optimizing your overall health. The weight loss is just an added bonus.

What are some ways to get in the habit of doing both diet and exercise?

Ray Doustdar, CEO Buiced, INC, joins Dr. Holly to debunk the myth that you only need either diet or exercise and how both components are influencing your life.
