Follow The Amazing Weight Loss Adventures Of DietGirl On Her Blog. And Yoga Expert Leigh Crews Helps PodFitness Give Away $50k
"The most entertaining weight loss and fitness show on radio." Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy radio show.
On tonight's show, Doctor Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about an amazing weight loss story from Shauna. She lives in Scotland and she has been blogging as DietGirl for over 6 years now. She has transformed herself from weighing over 350 pounds to now less than 180 pounds. That's right she has lost well over 170 pounds and kept it off. You must check out her blog at www.dietgirl.org if you want to be inspired and see for yourself that it is possible to lose weight, even a lot of weight if you stick with it and keep plugging away day after day. We are so proud of what Shauna has accomplished. She is a wonderful role model for all of us who know that we should lose weight but struggle with the enormity of the task. She talked about the importance of persistence not perfection. And also said not to put your life on hold until you get skinny. I think that Shauna is truly amazing and if you are a book publisher you should contact her and offer her a deal, because what she did and is still doing is worthy of being shared with everyone.
We also heard from Leigh Crews. Leigh is a professional fitness instructor and yoga expert. She was recently voted one of America's best trainers by Vogue magazine. In addition to lots of yoga and fitness dvds, Leigh has been working with the folks at PodFitness. Podfitness is the first fitness system that builds customized audio workouts based on your fitness goals. You just download the fitness workout onto your ipod or mp3 player and the trainer's voice comes on over your own music to tell you what to do and keep you going. You can choose from lots of trainers (we recommend Leigh) and any just about any workout imaginable.

This week we had time for the tips segment of the show which is now called Dr Fitness' "Things You Can Do Today" To Lose Weight Tomorrow. Here are a few of Dr. Fitness' tips...Number 1, weigh yourself every day. the Fat Guy said not to do this, but Dr Fitness insisted that weighing yourself is a great way to keep yourself accountable and therefore make any adjustments in a timely manner. Number 2, eat more fiber, especially fruit and vegetables. Fiber makes you feel full. And Number 3, go dancing more often. Dancing is a great and fun way to burn tons of calories. There was a lot more from Dr. Fitness, but you'll have to listen to the podcast or go to his blog to get the rest.The Fat Guy finally got around to showing Dr Fitness how to play the Nintendo Wii. Dr Fitness, being the exceptional athlete that he is picked it up right away. He is now on the look out for his own Wii.
We covered lots of news this week. Sadly Richard Jeni passed away this weekend. Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy saw him at a comedy club the last time he was in Atlanta. Also we talked about the 90 year old guy who wants to fight Jack LaLanne. That would make a great pay per view. Dr Fitness was excited about the gym in Holland that allowed you to workout naked. Yeah, how would you like to get on that bike right after the naked guy finished up. No thanks! And the Fat Guy tried Samoan food.
