Fitness Tips From the Doctor. Eating Right and Diet Tips From Carolyn O'Neil. And Winter Health Tips From Dr. Frenesa Hall.
"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 all kinds of tips. Our listeners have been emailing us about having a tip show and we listened to them. There are more weight loss tips on the show then we have ever had. First we had our very own Dr. Fitness give some awesome exercise and fitness tips. Then we brought on Carolyn O'Neil, the best selling author of the Best Health and Nutriton Cookbook (according to the Gourmand people and the World Food Media) titled "The Dish on Eating Healthy and Being Fabulous." Shape magazine called this book "one of the top 5 diet books you've gotta have." She couldn't stop talking about all kinds of tips on eating, exercising while talking on the phone, eating out at restaurants, even what adult beverages you should never order at the pool. Carolyn is the AOL Diet Coach and you can check that out here http://coaches.aol.com/diet/carolyn-oneil/main She is also a weekly columnist for the Atlanta Journal Constitution and is a recurring nutrition expert on Alton Brown's show "Good Eats" on the Food Network which you can check out here http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_ea/text/0,1976,FOOD_9956_50120,00.html
Or you can go to her website www.CarolynONeil.com and find out all the things she is up to.
Then we had the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Frenesa Hall, a Harvard educated M.D. who left the traditional doctor office behind and goes directly to her patients at their home or their office. That's right she is bringing back the house call. Her company Mobile-Medicine.Net is an innovator in improving the healthcare experience for her patients. Imagine a doctor who will spend as much time as you need going over your illness with you, instead of the 6 minutes they typically give you. Dr. Hall is an amazing doctor and she is truly doing great things. She had some great tips on how to avoid getting the flu or a cold this winter. You can learn more about her and her company at her website www.mobile-medicine.net. On her website you can get information about her personal services as well as information on the AmeriScience line of supplements that she recommends.
Dr Fitness also shared his tips on how to jump start your weight loss program now instead of waiting until New Years. Number 1, make a goal, write it down. Number 2, tell 10 people your goal in order to create some accountability. And Number 3, get a partner to watch your back. You will slip up, everyone does, you just need someone to get you back on track as soon as possible. You will have to listen to the show to find out all the rest of Dr Fitness' great exercise tips.
The Fat Guy forgot to give his Sarah Reinersten on the Amazing Race 10 on CBS update. She is the triathlete with the fake leg. She and Peter finished 3th in the fourth round and we will be tracking her progress each week on our show. Sarah is having some major rrealtionship problems with Peter.
