2nd Annual Halloween Calorie Saving Tip Show with The Hungry-Girl, The Nutrition Twins and Oprah Mags' Michael Gonzalez-Wallace
"The funniest weight loss and fitness radio show on the internet." Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy show.
On tonight's show, Doctor Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about how to survive Halloween without putting on too many extra pounds. This is Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy's 2nd Annual Halloween Calorie Saving Tip Show. Last year we were lucky enough to have Lisa Lillien, the Hungry-Girl on our first Halloween Show and she is back again this year. This year we also pulled some strings and had on Lyssie and Tammy Lakatos, the Nutrition Twins. And for the first time we had on one of New york's best personal trainers, who was recently featured in Oprah's O Magazine, Michael Gonzalez-Wallace.
We started off with Michael telling us about "The Workout That Does It All" this workout strengthens your mind as well as your muscles. It boosts your immune system while burning calorie after calorie. Micheal is a former professional basketball player from Spain who is now taking over New York City with this awesome exercise program. Check out his website www.sportstrengthtraining.com and see clips of his brand new DVDs. You can also learn all about the Neuromuscular Strength Training system he specifically developed to help his clients on the upper East Side of Manhattan. His Upper East Side Workout video was filmed in Central Park so you won't find a more picturesque looking exercise dvd. Micheal lost 9 pounds during the filming of these videos so imagine how much weight you'll lose if you use them a couple times a week. If you mention Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy when you order his exercise dvds Michael will knock off 15% of the purchase price.
Next we were joined by Lyssie and Tammy Lakatos, the Nutrition Twins. They recently were kind of regulars on the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy TV show. They can also be seen all the time on WABC news in New York giving all kinds of nutrition advice, recently they did an extended segment all about Halloween Candy. And that's what we talked about tonight on our show. The Nutrition Twins are big fans of Tootsie pops and other lollipops for treats. They also love Adora Calcium Supplements, which can be found at www.AdoraCalcium.com. For some reason, we also talked about tips to help you start gaining weight. Probably because Nicole Richie is in the news struggling with gaining weight. Yeah, her and 3 other people out there.
Please, check out Tammy and Lyssie's website www.NutritionTwins.com It is filled with lots of great information about losing weight and healthy eating. They will answer your nutrition questions and send you great recipes when you subscribe to their newsletter. You can also get their wonderful book "Fire Up your Metabolism: 9 Proven Principles for Burning Fat and Losing Weight Forever."
Then last, but certainly not least we had on Lisa Lillien, The Hungry-Girl herself. She has without a doubt the Number 1 email newsletter for hungry girls and hungry boys. Go to www.Hungry-Girl.com check it out and subscribe. It is my wife's favorite newsletter and she can't wait to get it each morning. We use more recipes and calorie saving techniques from Hungry-Girl than any other source.
Lisa talked about her mad scientist laboratory, I mean kitchen, where she mixes and matches low fat and low calorie ingredients to come up with her very own tasty concoctions. Her tips for this Halloween are more candy corn and peeps and less Snickers and Reese's. She also mentioned her tip for using Fiber One as a bread crumb substitute, but you'll have to listen to the show to see how to do that.
Dr Fitness also shared his tips on how to deal with the curve balls life thows you to knock you off your exercise program. Here are Dr. Fitness' tips...Number 1, start today, do not put off exercising until Next week or New Years. Number 2, Get involved in a team activity. And Number 3, get a partner to watch your back. You need support, everyone does. You will have to listen to the show to find out all the rest of Dr Fitness' great exercise tips.
The Fat Guy gave his Sarah Reinersten on the Amazing Race 10 on CBS update. Sadly she and Peter were eliminated. They had finished first the week before, but kept bickering, they got lost and finished well behind the rest of the other teams. She is the triathlete with the fake leg. So this marks the end of the Amazing Race updates. Check out the Amazing Race website here http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race10/ and Sarah's website here www.iamsarah.org
