Advice For Parents Who Continue To Spoil Adult Daughter

Gary and Linda claim their daughter, Lyzzy, is a lying, entitled manipulator with a bad attitude. They say she’s stolen $7,800 from her aunt’s debit card and stole Gary’s social security number to open up credit cards, where she racked up another $7,500 in debt.

“When Elisabeth was 18, it’s almost like she became a different person,” says Linda of her daughter who she says was a model child. “She decided she was an adult and she was not going to listen to anyone about anything, and she knew all the answers.”

Lyzzy, 24, admits she’s a “spoiled brat bitch,” but says it’s her parents fault for raising her that way.

The couple admits they spoiled their only child while she was growing up and that they didn’t implement consequences for her behavior. Gary also admits that he continues to bail out Lyzzy when she gets in trouble and supports her with $600 a month. But, they say they want things to change.

Later, Dr. Phil tells the couple, “There’s no accountability here. Why would she change? Necessity is the mother of invention. Why would she possibly change? There’s no necessity.”

“I feel like a younger, lighter version of myself,” Chris says.

In the video above, Dr. Phil is joined by Dr. Travis Stork, host of the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors, and author of the new book, The Lose Your Belly Diet: Change Your Gut, Change Your Life, to share how The Lose Your Belly Diet can help people make positive changes in their lives.

“It’s the one thing I will say I’m passionate about, because I have learned in life, especially as an E.R. doc, that you can either wait for an illness to occur and then treat it, or you can prevent it in the first place,” Dr. Stork says. “Live your best life.

Twenty-four-year-old Lyzzy says she has gained more than 100 pounds since high school. She currently lives at home with her parents who continue to support her and admits she has stolen thousands of dollars from her father and aunt. She turns to Dr. Phil for help, admitting that she’s ready to change her behavior – and her life.

WATCH: Parents Claim Daughter Is ‘Lazy, Manipulative Moocher’ Who Has Stolen Thousands From Family

Dr. Phil tells her that a place to start making changes is by taking better care of her body. “If you don’t value yourself, you’re never going to do better in your life by your own definition,” he says. “Everybody has a personal truth, and we generate the results in our life that we think we deserve. And you not taking care of yourself physically is just a symptom of not valuing yourself overall.”

Dr. Phil introduces Dr. Travis Stork, host of the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors, and author of the new book, The Lose Your Belly Diet: Change Your Gut, Change Your Life.

“The Lose Your Belly Diet is not really a diet but more of a lifestyle of healthy eating,” Dr. Phil tells Lyzzy.

Dr. Stork adds, “I think a lot of times people think about losing weight strictly from a vanity perspective. And one of the reasons I wrote this book – and I talk about it on The Doctors all the time – is it’s about so much more than that. Carrying too much weight puts you at risk for all the chronic illnesses.”

Dr. Phil continues, “Body image and self-image go up and down together. And your body image is at its absolute worst right now, would you agree?”

“One hundred percent,” Lyzzy says.

Dr. Travis tells her that once she starts changing the foods she eats, she will feel a difference quickly. “This doesn’t have to be the way you live your life if you choose not to,” he says.

WATCH: Secrets From The Lose Your Belly Diet For How To Lose Weight And Return To Health

Lyzzy says she’s ready to make a change. “I can’t do this anymore. I can’t. I’m tired of feeling like absolute garbage,” she says, adding that she started gaining weight when she lost her grandfather. “The day that I lost him, my whole world fell apart. And that’s why I am the way I am.”

“What I came away with is [the diet] gives the person a sense of empowerment and control,” Dr. Phil says. “This is them controlling what they do, what they put in their body and understanding why.”

21st Century Cures Act: A New Bill That Could Speed Up Finding Cures For Common Diseases

Dr. Phil recently went to Capitol Hill and met with Congressman Fred Upton and Congresswoman Diana DeGette to discuss the 21st Century Cures Act, critical legislation that will accelerate the cycle of discovering, developing, and delivering new cures and treatments for diseases like cancer and diabetes.

“This is a bipartisan bill that we passed in the House last summer and it expedites, streamlines the procedure to approve drugs and devices, so we can find the cures for diabetes to cancer to you name it,” Congressman Upton tells Dr. Phil.

Representative DeGette adds, “We can actually speed up clinical trials so that we can get cures to patients much more quickly, and it has billions of dollars for research into diseases for which we don’t have cures, like diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.”

“This is something that can impact your life or mine,” says Dr. Phil, who was diagnosed with diabetes 25 years ago.
