[machine whirs] >> what do you think, brent? nasty, right? [forbes laughs] nas-ty! >> all right, now let me get your cup. >> now, i'm telling you, no ifs, ands or buts, brent... [forbes laughs] let me tell you. >> oh, he's looking nervous there, montel. >> here, i'm not even gonna taste it first. i'ma let you taste it first. try that. [laughter and applause] [forbes laughs] what do you think? that's all i'm saying! wouldn't it be wonderful to see kids as well as parents actually excited about eating vegetables and fruit every single day? you can do that, but check this out. this is what happened when i
4:06 am
recently visited a local farm. take a look at this. well, we're at the farms view road stand farmers market with dana and her kids, adam and alec... jillian, right? jillian, do you eat a lot of vegetables? >> no. >> do you like spinach? oh, i love it when i have a child who can't stand spinach because you think it doesn't taste good, but i'm gonna take some spinach and i'ma show you that in just a minute, i'm gonna make sure you eat a little spinach. let's reach over here and grab ourselves a little romaine lettuce, stick that in there on the top-- mmm, mmm, mmm-- and you know what, what we could do is throw a couple pieces of celery in here too. what do you think? do you think this will taste good? [laughter] but what we wanna do now is start stealthing it up a little bit, you wanna make it taste a little sweeter. what fruit do you like? >> strawberries. >> strawberries, we said that earlier, so let's get you some strawberries in there. do you like apples? >> girl: grapes! >> grapes-- you got the grapes, girlfriend. let's put a whole load of grapes in this one... do you like peaches? o.k., i'll throw a couple of peaches in there. and a little bit of sweetness, we'll throw an extra banana in this one... couple oranges'll cut down that bitter flavor.
4:07 am
let's add a little ice. and let's see what we got. [machine whirs] all right, now, what do you think? do you think it's going to taste good? o.k., i'm gonna give you a little taste of this. and let's take a look at the reaction on this face. [♪...] >> mmm. >> it's o.k., though, right? >> tastes yummy! >> it's yummy. it's all about taste and whatever you like for taste. am i stealthing him or trying to hide the fruits and vegetables? yes, the vegetables, but i'm letting my kids participate in it. [applause] for the taping of the show, it was about 97, about 100 days ago, we got a group of people together out in california and i said to them, "listen to me. i guarantee you that if you go on our healthmaster and you start using the recipes that we'll give you, we can change your life." folks, wait till you see the way some of my guests' lives have changed. take a look at this. [applause]
4:08 am
>> with the living well blender and montel's living well program, it just... it retaught me how to... how to live a healthy life. this was me before and this is me after. i mean, i'm in a pair of size 5 jeans, whereas before i was wearing a 10. and you know, i'm feeling great. you can change your life with the living well program. it was the best thing that i ever did. >> the living well program, it allowed me to lose weight in ways that i didn't think i was going to. i knew i was gonna lose weight. i just didn't know how much. i went from wearing a 48 to a 36. it's everything you need and want, and i'm living well. it's just been wonderful. the living well program works. and that blender's great. [chuckles] i love that blender. >> you name it, i have tried it. i've tried every pill, every exercise program, every, you know, diet plan. i've done them all. and until i tried the living well blender, i've just
4:09 am
struggled and struggled. on the living well program, i have lost 26 pounds. i'm down three or four sizes now. i've wanted to have results like these and now i feel like i've finally succeeded, and i thank montel. [applause] >> i don't know, i gotta tell you, i'm not kidding. when i look at them, i saw them three months ago in california and i'm looking at them right now and i'm almost, i'm laughing inside but almost want to cry because of how much this program has made a difference in these people's lives. listen to me folks, they started this program, i think it's less than 100 days ago, and in less than 100 days, combined weight loss between the two of them, 78 pounds... [applause] before the program, kenny weighed 295 pounds. let's take a look at the old kenny. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the new kenny to the show! [cheering and applause]
4:10 am
[♪...] are you kidding me? my goodness, man, wait... wait, wait, wait... and, guys, you remember the old amy, take a look at amy, and guys, welcome the new amy to the show! [cheering and applause] [♪...] come on over, darling. my goodness, good to see you here, have a seat, obviously, but wait, kenny, you can't have a seat before you show them this, because before you started this program these were the jeans that my man wore. >> audience: wow... >> have a seat for a second, guys. how-- wait-- how long, how long have you been doing this program? [applause] >> 12 weeks. >> we did it for 12 weeks. >> 12 weeks. so in a 12-week period of time you lost 50...? >> kenny: 50 pounds. >> 50 pounds. in 12 weeks you lost 28, 27, 28 pounds? >> 27, 28... >> how difficult was this to do, first off. >> not difficult at all. just... you gotta prepare
4:11 am
yourself in the morning and get up and decide what you're gonna do for the day and get it done, in the morning. >> is this now a momentary diet or this gonna be for you a lifestyle change? >> lifestyle. >> lifestyle change. >> kenny and amy's program turned their life around. take a look at this. [♪...] >> kenny: people see me that haven't seen me since i was bigger and they're asking me what i'm doing and they're, you know, curious. they want to know, like, "oh, what's the magic pill?" i'm like, "there is no magic pill, it's just hard work." you're just completely changing your eating habits. you could put spinach in there, you could put broccoli in there. the reason why you should use the juicer is because it, it makes it simple. the blade is all connected, it's all one unit. you put everything in there, you pulverize it and then you put it in a couple of containers and you go. you could take the apple out of the bag, rinse it off and throw it in there. if you got a brick around here i'll put it in here and it'll grind that up too. it pulverizes everything. just being fit and having people come up to you and giving compliments all day long versus
4:12 am
having a great cheeseburger for, you know, one hour out of the day... there's no comparison. i'll take compliments all day long. [chuckles] >> amy: what appealed to me about montel's program was the convenience. you're basically blending your meals every day. this isn't like a normal blender. a regular blender would never be able to chop through lettuce and apples. mixing fruits and vegetables together, blending them together tasted really good and gave me a lot of energy as well. so many people have asked me about what i'm doing. i am sharing with anybody that will listen, try this, it will make you feel amazing. it will change your life. it changed my life. this isn't a temporary fix. this isn't a diet. i'm gonna do this for the rest of my life. >> announcer: up next, from baby food to frozen dessert, discover all the amazing features of the one-of-a-kind healthmaster. plus, don't go away. sylvia's coming back with
4:13 am
shocking predictions for our audience and her own delicious healthmaster smoothie. >> announcer: introducing the living well healthmaster fruit and vegetable emulsifier. the healthmaster is more than a blender because blenders only blend and leave clumpy messes, while mixers only combine ingredients and leave even bigger messes, and juicers simply discard the nutrient-rich skins, seeds and pulp. the healthmaster truly is the kitchen appliance breakthrough that does what other machines simply can't. the secret is its amazing high-speed digital emulsification system. this unique and proprietary process literally pulverizes and liquifies whole fruits, vegetables and leafy greens in just seconds, while retaining all the powerful, potent and valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients that other machines leave behind. you can increase your energy... improve vitality and lose weight the healthy way. and the healthmaster saves you money by utilizing inexpensive fruits and vegetables from your
4:14 am
grocer, turning them into healthy, vitamin-rich chilled juices, smoothies and power drinks, and all-natural healthy baby foods, delicious hot soups, sensational low-calorie salad dressings, plus instantly mix ingredients for cupcakes, muffins, pizza dough and breads. you can even make frozen desserts, like creamy, mouthwatering ice cream and fresh fruit sorbets. the healthmaster literally does it all, replacing over 20 kitchen appliances and performing over 31 jobs, saving you valuable time and money, making the healthmaster the one kitchen appliance you can't live without. the healthmaster features a motor that's almost two horsepower-- 1100 watts of power-- and these commercial- grade culinary-angled stainless steel blades that emulsify wet or dry whole foods at over 3000 r.p.m. that's enough power and performance to decimate these chunks of solid concrete into a super-fine powder. and the healthmaster is still good as new. why boil fresh vegetables and lose healthy nutrients, when you
4:15 am
can make hot soups and sauces right inside the extra-large carafe? the key is the healthmaster's centrifugal friction, which cooks foods naturally, retaining all the healthy nutrients and delivering hot, flavorful and robust soups in a snap. and with its preset timer function, you simply set it and walk away. similar consumer and professional machines could cost you as much as $1200, but you won't pay $1200 for the incredible healthmaster. in fact, you won't pay half of that... not even a fraction of that cost. call now and during this exclusive television offer, you can own the amazing living well healthmaster for only five payments of $49.99. plus, you'll also get this super slim me eating plan, designed with nutritional secrets to help you lose weight the easy healthmaster way. be one of the first 500 to order and we'll also send you these four bonus recipe books, free! loaded with over 100 delicious recipes for smoothies, power drinks, soups, sauces, desserts

[cheering and applause] a little switch-up, a little switch-up. >> sylvia: it's cozy. >> a little cozier. >> it's cozier... that's right. >> that way i can bring people closer to our guest who want information, like megan, right here, who had a question for you, sylvia. what do you got, megan? >> i just want to know, my family's going through a lot right now with my grandma being diagnosed with cancer and my aunt has stage four colon cancer. i just want to know, is things gonna get better for me and my family? >> yeah... they get better in august. >> i gotta stop right here for just a second. the product that i've been talking about throughout this hour, which is the living well healthmaster blender, i'm gonna tell you, without a doubt, you can reduce your risk of cancer, you can reduce your risk of colon cancer... >> yes... yes, preventative. >> if you just apply some of the principles that are in our recipes and putting more vegetables and fruits through your body. the food and drug administration has made that statement, so perfect question. we'll go on, you had a question, go ahead, what's your question, michelle? >> i recently got divorced, moved, changed my job and, um, i just want to know if i'll
4:18 am
eventually find somebody to share my life with and if i'll be financially sound. >> yeah, in two years, but you know i think that was the best thing you ever did was, you know, really, you did hold your nose and jump, 'cause that's a lot of change. but i think you were so backed against the wall that that's the only thing you could've done. >> you had a question. [applause] >> hi, sylvia. i just graduated out of high school and i don't know where my career path is actually gonna go, so i just want to know, do you know, am i gonna be successful at whatever i end up doing? >> yeah, it looks like you're gonna get into communication and writing. >> am i going to be successful? >> yeah, or otherwise i'd tell you not to do it. >> o.k., thank you. >> montel: there you are. [applause] and you know what, now wait a minute. now, way earlier on in the show, if you remember, i had sylvia give me some information about what kind of fruits and vegetables you like... >> yes, yes, yes. >> and i had... we went back and made the sylvia drink. is the drink ready? it's ready? it's ready, well, go ahead and
4:19 am
please welcome back to the show, forbes riley! welcome back! [applause] forbes, let me let you have my seat. >> forbes: oh, well, thank you. >> now, you know, i'm doing this deliberately because i'ma show you guys with this drink, how this drink works, how good the drink is. >> here's the crazy thing. if i said, "here's an entire plate of this, would you mind eating all this fruit and vegetable? it's good for you." but you know what, who's gonna eat an entire plate of raw food? anybody here? >> you couldn't eat all that. well, it's not that you wouldn't like it, you just couldn't, it would be too filling. >> well, i gotta tell you something: i don't really like raw broccoli, truth be told. but this is to your health, and all of yours. >> o.k. >> take a drink from the healthmaster, what i made, using all these ingredients, it's raw. >> that is absolutely wonderful. >> wait, wait, wait, wait, everybody thinks you're just joking. we made some for the audience. bring 'em out here, bring it out here, bring it out, bring it out. [applause] >> forbes: it tastes green and sludgy or...? >> it's good. >> sylvia: is it good?
4:20 am
>> forbes: but look what's in it, this is what's so amazing. you have broccoli, you have spinach, you have mangoes. >> a lot of people here in this audience are gonna have questions for sylvia about their health, about, you know, there's something that happened to a relative who's ill... >> right. >> right now, if people dedicated themselves to changing their life, getting to a living well kind of an attitude, start putting more fruits and vegetables in your diet... >> sylvia: but who would ever think about mixing vegetables and fruit together and have it taste like this? >> but that's the crazy thing. before the healthmaster you couldn't do it. you can't do this in just a regular blender. it's not fast enough, it doesn't emulsify, it doesn't taste as good as this. >> this is delicious. >> montel: without a doubt. i'm gonna take a little break. it's all about the living well healthmaster blender. we'll be back right after this. [applause] >> announcer: the healthmaster truly is a one-of-a-kind kitchen appliance that does what no other blender can. watch the healthmaster turn solid ice into smooth, blended frost in seconds, while the standard blender skips and grinds, leaving behind the solid ice chunks intact. how about leafy greens and vegetables?
4:21 am
the standard blender is no match for the healthmaster-- watch as it quickly pulverizes even large vegetables in seconds. the healthmaster's digital emulsification power makes it more than a blender. it's your in-home commercial grade appliance that blends... chops... liquefies... and even processes food in just seconds. the healthmaster does it all. [applause] >> well, welcome back and if you've just tuned in, i'm here with forbes riley and the amazing-- [applause] thank you-- and the amazing living well healthmaster which is not a blender and it's not a mixer, it's not a chopper... >> forbes: oh, what is it? >> it's not a food processor. it is an unbelievably powerful emulsifier that takes the best part, the absolute best parts, of fruits and vegetables and turns them into delicious, nutritious foods, drinks and smoothies the way you know your family will ingest them. >> forbes: it's so much easier with the healthmaster and here's a secret. if you've got a little baby at home, we're gonna teach you how to make the most amazing fresh baby food, but it's also economic. >> economic, because we know that something like this, the baby foods that we always get,
4:22 am
cost... >> o.k., they cost about 58 cents for a regular one, 89 cents apiece for an organic one. now if i make my peas in here, an entire bag like this costs $1.99. that will make, if i put it in my ice cube trays here, 10 jars. do the math. $8.90 or $1.99. a $7 savings? so here we go. you blanch these first. steam 'em a little bit. get 'em a little soft. add a little bit of water. here's another secret-- you take the juice from the steaming because it's got nutrients in it, you put that in here and that's how we puree it. so here, we're gonna turn it on, let's run it. [machine whirs...] and here's what i do. i take them and i pour it out here-- and this is how i started my twins-- right into here, o.k., there's one, there's two. i can do this entire tray and what you get is, you put this in the freezer and now you have a month's supply of homemade baby food. you don't need to do it every day, so here's my peas, my sweet potatoes and my carrots. [applause] now, montel, i think one of the
4:23 am
downfas to dieting is that you always want something sweet, you want a dessert and you find, you know, you're good all day and then you need something? this something rocks. >> i'm just dropping in some mangoes, right? got a little bit of mango, i'm putting in a little bit of ice. earlier we used fructose as our sweetener. you can use that. you can go out and get yourself some honey. this is a mango sorbet. >> forbes: this will take that edge off of your day. [machine whirs...] >> and again, you'll run this for about three minutes. and you're gonna be absolutely amazed at that, look at that. >> now this, it's, it's cold! now tell me that that's not better than store-bought because it's fresh. >> very good. >> i like cooking for you. >> you can do this with raspberries, you could do this with apple sorbet, you could do this with honey-- name it, you can make a sorbet. >> tell me, what are you thinking back here? >> oh, yeah, it's very good. >> would you buy this in the store? >> absolutely.
4:24 am
>> yeah? how about you, darlin'? come on, tell me what's going on. >> it's very, very good. >> yeah? >> mm-hmm. >> forbes: do you like dessert? >> i love dessert, but i didn't think i liked mangoes, but it was delicious. >> see, i love that. you know, montel, doesn't this just speak to you, when you eat something fresh, it tastes good? >> it does, but let's talk about it real quick. why don't you tell 'em again why it's so important that every american household has to have a living well healthmaster? >> for those of us who are short on time, you think you have to go for the fast food-- you don't-- this is a fast, healthy, nutritious way to make food, but the thing that i am loving right now, we're living on a budget. i look at how much i spend on ice creams and i mean, smoothies! you go to a smoothie bar and it's what, $4.50 for a smoothie? i can make one for under $1. isn't that amazing? when you start to add that up per month, you are saving hundreds of dollars a year. the healthmaster will pay for itself, especially in your medical bills. >> everyone deserves an opportunity to live well. that's why i want you all to go out and get a living well healthmaster. this is your first step in turning ordinary fruits, vegetables and proteins into extraordinary tasty sensations.

4:34 am
lives. their stories are true and their photos are un-retouched. >> it is very important to have a customized plan because no two bodies are the same. we all have different metabolisms. the six week body makeover tells you what foods are good for your body. unfortunately i was eating the wrong ones before and that's why i didn't lose weight. now i know, i've identified which are the correct foods to eat and i've lost 88 pounds and 90 inches off my body. >> i learned what foods work best with my body type. >> ...but just naturally speeds your metabolism up and you have nothing to do but lose weight. >> in the past i've struggled just to lose five pounds and to lose 120 pounds is-- i lost a person in six months, by eating! by eating, and eating a lot of food. it's amazing. >> so you can eat more, exercise less and totally make over your body. >> i know it because i did it. i have lost 83 pounds, i have lost 76 inches over my entire body. >> i went from a size 22 to a size 8. >> i couldn't believe that i

4:36 am
school i was about 400 pounds. i remember getting into a car, um, not being able to buckle the seatbelt... going on an airplane and not fitting in the seat. even just, just walking from my bedroom to the rest room was hard, on my knees, on my legs... it was painful. i bought a 550-pound capacity scale and when i got the scale and i got on it it didn't take my weight because i weighed more than 550 pounds. i was just... i remember being shocked, being disappointed, being mad at myself. i feel less of a human. i had seen extreme makeover with michael thurmond and then i started seeing the testimonials on the web site and i was like, well, if they can do it, maybe i can do it. i said, o.k., i' ll give it a week, what do i have to lose? first i started losing over five pounds a week. i lost 100 pounds within the first five months. on the six week body makeover i've lost 365 pounds. i went from a size 36w to a size 12. i think that the person that
4:37 am
i've become has... is beautiful. >> once you have a plan that's customized for your body and you start eating the foods that are right for your metabolism, the weight will literally fall off your body, and you will see results faster than you ever imagined. >> on michael thurmond's plan, i saw results immediately. in the first, first week i lost seven pounds, which... that has never happened before. and then within, within the first six weeks i had lost almost 30 pounds. the key to the six week body makeover plan is that it's different for everybody, it's not a one-size-fits-all plan. you actually answer some questions, you figure out what your body type is and then you basically are given an eating and exercise plan based upon your body type, and then that's what you use going forward. before starting the plan, i was in a size 22/24 and now i wear a size 10. i lost 85 pounds in nine months. >> it's extremely important to have a customized plan. one diet will not work for everybody because everybody's body is different.
4:38 am
each body type handles food different ways and knowing what your body type is and knowing how your body handles the food that you're putting into it is a powerful tool. i saw results immediately. the first week, i believe it was 10 pounds that i had lost. at the end of my first six weeks, i'd lost over 36 pounds. six weeks, over 36 pounds. after nine months, i've lost 90 pounds. the six week body makeover program was a, was a godsend. >> see, diets don't work. i've been on enough to know that. i dieted my way up into a 300 pound body. and i tried everything. i went on weight watchers a couple of times. i did the atkins many times. i drank protein powder drinks for four months, lost 75 pounds and then was terrified to put a piece of lettuce in my mouth, and then i gained 75 pounds and then another 30. on the six week body makeover
4:39 am
i lost over 100 pounds in eight months, and i've kept it off for almost two years, and i feel fantastic. >> if you've been heavy your whole life or you feel like you've got an overwhelming amount of weight to lose, you may think the idea of making your body over the way you want is impossible. you'd be happy just to lose 30, 40 or 50 pounds. but you have to recognize that if you have the right tools, you can do more than lose the weight. you really can make over your body to look exactly the way you want. >> using the six week body makeover i was able to lose 79 pounds, over 85 inches, and i did it all in just over six months. ...it's called the six week body makeover because it is a makeover. i have completely transformed my body into how i want it to look and i think i look better now than i did in high school. when i started the program, i was absolutely huge here. i mean, ridiculously huge here.
4:40 am
one of my thighs was bigger than my waist is now. my waist is 25 inches. my right thigh was 30.5 inches when i started this program. my thigh was bigger than this. that's amazing. with my arms i would never wear a sleeveless shirt. i was so embarrassed of my arms, and now, that's all i want to wear. i want to show off the muscle that i have gained through this program, only using the toning bands. i have not stepped foot in a gym. i couldn't believe that it worked. i couldn't believe how easy it was for me to get this. when i started the six week body makeover i was a size 18 and i weighed 199 pounds. in just over six months i lost 79 pounds, over 85 inches and i'm a size 0 or a size 2. >> announcer: what if you could pick exactly what you want your body to look like, then make it over to those exact specifications without starving yourself and without ever stepping foot in a gym?

7:38 am
central virginia to the virginia and west virginia line. it will take the better part of the morning, if not all the morning, to get all the way to the bay. so we have a lot more rain to go here over the next few hours, and we have activities over the next few hours. to see if we can one, get out from under the rain, much less the clouds. here's the rainy picture. that's the low so far. 351 at the inner harbor. humidity up. the barometer rising. the cold front went through a number of hours ago. all this rain is behind the cold front. the rain has developed along the front. all right. let's take a look at a sampling of temperatures. you can see the effects of the cold front along the coast. temperatures a little less chilly. readings in the mid 50's to

7:40 am
could persist into 0 the evening hours. it looks like we may kick clouds further north again. here's the forecast. today, morning rain, decreasing clouds. north winds at 5 to 10. that means, for tailgaters, wet weather this morning. at game time we should start drying out. during the game, temperatures in the 50's. next week, drier weather. partly cloudy skies on average. a few mornings, though, lows in the 30's. kind of chilly. >> thank you, john, if you are thinking about your financial future and it may be a little daunting considering the economy, we have help because financial planner timothy mauer is here, and you are going to be on the money bus tour. tell us briefly about the money bus tour? >> it is on its second annual loop around the country. it is an organization which is basically a financial literacy initiative to go around the
