The Texas Tenors
JC Fisher, Marcus Collins, and John Hagen tell us the story behind the formation of The Texas Tenors and how they have come to be such an immensely successful act ever since competing on "America's Got Talent." The men credit their diversity amongst musical genres as the key to the group's mega success. The Texas Tenors then lend their voices to "You Should Dream."

Hypnotherapist Paul McKenna
Hypnotherapist Paul McKenna is taking a new approach to weightloss. Without going under the knife, Paul has found success in hypnotizing patients into believing they had gastric band surgery. In theory, this method tricks the body into feeling full quicker. He illustrates how to curb Cristina's compulsion to eat a bagel with cream cheese by mixing it with a food she's repulsed by. Over time, this technique will recondition Cristina to have a mitigated desire to begin with.
Paul's book "Hypnotic Gastric Band" and CD are available at paulmckenna.com. Go to iTunes for his app, "Change Your Life in 7 Days," for $7.99 per program.
