>> david gregory is moderor at "meet the press," david, good morning. esident obama had a difficult sk the otheright in tucson in comforting the people of the country, and also to calm the political debate. how did h do? i think he did very bell. you see comments from the left and the right, everybo across the political spectrum. it did two things, which is to give voice to what people around the country have been feeling, th is sometng that aects people and families whether you knew the victims or not very deeply. and he took the country to a place that it didn't even know it needed to go. talking about -- i think it was a moment that all agreed tha he seized andind of charts a path for where washington and frankly the st of the country can go. >> i think we all agree civility

7:15 am
of how we talk to one another. that's a criticism that she will carry with her and there's been a queson about whether she can steput of that narrow band o supporters. >> we have a special round table dedicated to these questions abt our political discourse moving forward, marti luther king's birthday, we'll begin the prram with a debate abo washingt, the debate over gun contro senar schumer and coburn join us for that discussi. and now let head over to thnews desk, where ann curry has a checof the morning's other top sties. good morning,everybody. also in the news this morning, wikiles is contributing $15,000 for t lal defense of the army private accused of one of the biggest security breaches in u.s. history. a soldier is chaed with leaking hundreds of thousands of

"the life you want" i wanted to go deeper and give people techniques that hp them go through the barriers to succs. >> and youave worke with oprah winfrey, who's been very public in th're battle with weight and it's still a battle for her, despiteverything she has at h disposal, personal chefs, ainers, nutritionis.
8:45 am
if it's a fight for oprah, how do the rest of us get tough this? >> w identify barriers in our life. and when y look at the top barriers, some may be eviden othersaren't. oprahtruggles with most of they barriers and she's very public about that and it is pinned t her emotions. sure, she can prepare the right food, she can have a trainer, bu it's really about what jolts you out of your comfort zone and what throws your le out of balance and that's the key. >> dr. ann, youay we have got to keep our life in balance, as bob was saying here, howo we do that what does that mean exactly >> i think we liven a world where we're told the more you do, t more you're going t get out of life. but people are talking about beingxhausted and fatigued and when you're exhausted and fatigued, your ability to make good decisions decreases and i think what you see is people begin to make bad decisions abt food. >> so how do we do that? how do we prevent ourselves from
8:46 am
being exhausted all the time and say you kn what? i'm going to g out there and go to the gym, i'm going to eat ght when you hav so much happening in your life? >> you have to take charg of yourlife. you need to say i'm in charge of this chapter in my life, i need to makeure that i put time aside excise, that i tak time to b fresh fruits and vegetabl and see this as not something that's bei -- many of the people i work with feel this is being selfish, it's n selfh, it's a way to prerve and keep yoursf health >> we hear all the time, i don't have time to workout, i have kids and'm at work all day, but you say you mayot need as much time as you think? >> i havbeen doing this 30 years and i have hea every excuse. it's really about getting at least 20, even better 30 mines a day. >> how about an avsion to exerse. it's not my thing. i don't consider that a choice.

8:48 am
ki of like we have a chicken and egg here. youeed to be happy in order to exercise and exercise will me you happy. if you're talking to the audience, what's the first thi they should focus on? >> i think they should take the weight loss -- we tk a lot about psychology. that's the key. and be happy today and you're going to be 1,000 tim more likely to wake up and exercise and eat the right foods. >> i also think what bewee saying here is that many people know the right thing too but th don't do it. that's why we went intohat are the psychological issues that ep you from doing what you ow you need to do. >> "the le you want." bob green, ann carney. upnext, fun foods you can serve during next sunday golden globes, b first this is

9:47 am
toxing, youeally think that there's an extreme edge that can be unhelpful? >> eremes in anything are going to be a problem. detox dieting can be a veryood thg. wh you want tovoid are things that are extended fasts, more than 24 urs, you know, low lorie juice fasts, things that are cleansers lik colon aches, these are things that can have some healthconsequences, so when you think of detox, y want to think of the good way to do it and n the extreme way. >> this is a good way to get rid of all the sins that we eat, the fats, the salts, the alcohols that enter our dy. what ishe right way to dox yourself. >> the things you want to get rid of is extsugar, fat, salt, caffeine and alcoho so you can getid of mos of thosthingsimply by not having any packaged or prepared foods. let's lk about fresh food. and by that it can also be fresh
9:48 am
frozen. produce is a great things, fruits and vegetables but it c be really pricey. look for fresh and frozen vaeties. when you get rid of packaged foods, you're also going to get rid of a lot o additiv and preservati preservatives. >> a lot of people during this timeill not want to for a few da, maybe not eat meatnd go for, what i assume is protein. so you say there' some good plant proteins. what are they? fr p fr protein is important. you can have poultry and fish. but the best thing is to switch plant proteins that are just as compete a protein soce, some people think that's not as good for you, things like soy, things like beans that are easy to prepare a they're ailable. these are things that are easy on your digesti track.
9:49 am
>> we thought those were not complete proteins. >> it's someing that when you look into putting all these amino acids, when you mixhem together, something like rice and beans, together they make a mplete protein, but during the day, if you have ricend if you have beans, you don't have to worry about mixing and matching. so any amoun of plant protein is going to be excellent. >> also when i comes to this, you need to reay drink a lot of liquids bause obviously you'reoing to be changing your system. what are the do's and don'ts of that? what shouldou be drinking no alcohol, for example. >> you want to cut out alcohol and caffeine. it doesn't mean forever, you want to cut this out toround zero your system. you want to drink a lot of water, that's going to help to flush,ilute things and get them out of your system. they can re-ter later on b you don't want to spend a bunch of calories on juices, think
9:50 am
about water tha you can put a little splash of lime in or even some juice. keep that fluidup. half of your body weight in water per y. >> so u're really flushing a lot of things out. what happens when you doll o this, would seem that you're going to feel a lot lighter? >> you're going to feel a lot less bload. when that salt is gone, you're going to feel just a sense of well-bng, you'll be less bloated, you're actually going to sleep better. so ts is all going to tie into a 24-hour cycle, it's not just about the food. >> and exercise, how important is ercise during this process? >>xercise is reallyimportant, because you want to rid your body of thingsou don't need. exercise is a great metabolic stimus to get your body moving. but it's importantor a little brain detox to do things that are going to be stress
