On today's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy opened with Lenore Skenazy, sometimes called America's Worst Mom because she had the nerve to let her 9 year old ride the subway in NY alone. Lenore has written the book Free Range Kids: How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts With Worry) which talks about giving your kid a little more freedom to play and explore outside on their own.This is a must have book for today's over protective parents - check it out at www.freerangekids.com

We closed the show with Tony Myers and Warren Bruno - two members of the Georgia Chain Gang. This gang of do-gooders are four over 50 guys from Atlanta who are riding in the Race Across America as a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. This amazing bike race starts in California and ends over 3000 miles away in Maryland. Last year they finished the race in a little over 7 days. This year they are trying to beat that time and raise over $140,000. Please help them achieve their goal at www.georgiachaingang.org
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by thousands of people who are interested in what he does each day. Who would have thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's exploits on Twitter. Food journals are great ways to lose weight and the Fat Guy is always trying anything in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So take a peek into his food diary. You never know what he'll write. Somehow he can stay compliant to writing on Twitter but he can't fit in exercise each day. That's right, moments after he eats something the Fat Guy used to Twitter about it and you can follow him so that one day if you try real hard you too can look like the Fat Guy. Please go to www.twitter.com/fatguy Remember we are now on every morning in Michigan. On radio station WKNW. They asked us to create a Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy "Wellness Minute." So now a new Wellness Minute runs on that station each morning at around 7:40. Each Wellness Minute features the doctor and I going over 5 of his best tips on a given wellness subject like: losing weight, getting in shape, living a healthy lifestyle, etc. Now these Wellness Minutes are available online. If you have a favorite radio station that you think would benefit from our Wellness Minutes send them an email telling them about it and who knows maybe you can hear us everyday too. Also once again, I need you to please do me a favor. My kid Max has been doing a radio show called "Kid Power Radio" for awhile now and you should check it out. Tiffany from The Daily Candy called his family friendly radio show "Hilarious!" This is a great show for your kids. It is kind of like a kids version of TMZ or Entertainment Tonight mixed in with a little Wayne's World. Max recaps the week in entertainment and gives his take and review of what he liked and didn't like on TV, at the movies, video games, in books and in music and even restaurant reviews. Please go to his site and download the show for your kid. He had a big show recently he interviewed Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, someone from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and even Miranda Cosgrove star of Nickelodeon's Hit TV Show iCarly. And if your kid sends Max an email he'll read it on the air next week. The show can be found at www.kidpowerradio.com and you can email Max at RadioStarMax at Yahoo.com.
