"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 eating healthy from our "Blogger of the Week" Dr Tanya Taylor. Tanya is the editor of www.IAteAPie.Net a great blog that reviews foods that dieters like to eat. Tanya has her PhD in Food Science and Nutrition and she loves to talk food. She has some strong opinions about everything from articificial sweetners like Splenda to the government regulating trans fats.
We also spoke with Sheri Gilburth. Sheri is a certified massage therapist and she spoke extensively about Reiki, an ancient healing technique that compliments massage therapy as well as other massage techniques. She told us stories about how she has been able to help her clients deal with stress, depression and maximize their athletic potential. You can learn more about her practice at www.heartcenteredtherapy.com
Dr. Fitness seemed to have read the news this week and he had some thoughts about mindless eating from a study by Cornell University and he was freaking out about the increase of obesity related surgeries that are happening. The Fat Guy thinks obesity surgeries are good for everyone but Dr Fitness has a problem with people taking the easy way out.
This week the good Doctor was kind enough to come up with a few tips. The tips segment is now called Dr Fitness' "Things You Can Do Today" to squeeze in activity into your busy schedule. Here are a few of Dr. Fitness' tips...Number 1, always take the stairs. Number 2, set your watch to beep every hour...then get up and do some light exercises for 5 minutes. Do things like jog in place or squats. If you do this 6-8 times a day you have done a nice easy workout. And Number 3, always park far away, the walk will do you good. Remember exercise has a cumulative effect every little bit helps. There was a lot more from Dr. Fitness, so you will have to listen to the show to find out all the rest of these great tips. And I'm sure he'll post all the tips on his blog.
The doctor also mentioned (again) that he has been chosen to be an expert on the Fit America contest. That means that if you sign up for this great contest you can get extra help from your favorite fitness doctor.

Once again we were also lucky enough to have Kathie Larkin, fitness model, actress, soon to be exercise dvd star and host of the Real Savvy Moms TV show on as a co-host. Kathie had a lot of questions for our our food doctor. she also made fun of the Fat Guy pretty good. that was nice. She'll be in Las Vegas for the next couple of weeks showing off her legs at some big shoe trade show. She is a foot and legs model. But she promised she will be back. Be sure to check out Kathie's website www.getkathie.com. Also check her out as on www.RealSavvyMoms.com Be on the look out for her during the Super Bowl. she will be in one of the commercials during the game.
The Fat Guy was his usual sarcastic self... teasing each of the guests and especially the doctor. He was a uncomfortable talking about massage because he doesn't really like to be touched. And he was very intimidated by the food doctor because she obviously was the smartest person on the show.
