She also loves Lesser Evil's Krinkle Sticks and the Corn Muffins from Vitalicious. She talked about her upcoming Hungry Girl Cookbook that features 165 recipes and survival tips. She gave our listeners her top tip to help you stick with your New Years Resolution in 2008. She said that you should try to live by the 80-20 rule. Which means to eat good 80% of the time and to have some fun the rest of the time. Remember tomorrow is another day. And don't set unrealistic goals they just set you up to fail.

We also had on Harrison Forbes the co-host of Pet Talk. The nation's best pet show on radio. Harrison shared his best dog training tips including his suggestion to use a prong collar when training your dog. He also chimed in on the recent tiger attack at the San Francisco Zoo and how he recently appeared on the Larry King Show to discuss it. He also said that a lot of bad dog behaviors like digging or chewing can be traced to your dogs frustration. And you might be able to cure the dog by exercising your dog. Remember when you do exercise your dog do it at dog speed not Fat Guy speed. Harrison talked about his upcoming project he is working on with James Gandolfini and his upcoming book. For more info on everything he is up to be sure to check out his website www.harrisonforbes.com
We led off the show with womens health journalist Karen Bridson author of the book Secrets of Skinny Chicks. Karen interviewed 25 skinny women to learn exactly how they got in shape. She purposely chose women who were not naturally skinny to see what they did and didn't do to achieve their weight loss goal. It seems that in order to lose weight you must be very mindful of your eating and to exercise a lot more than you think is enough. Her book also touches on the dangers of overdoing it. She shares a very personal story of a friend of hers who suffered from an eating disorder. Please check out her book at Amazon, Barnes and noble and other bookstores.
And we ended the show and 2007 with a great interview with one of our BFF's Jennifer Nicole Lee. JNL shared some of the exciting things she has planned in 2008. She has got calendars, ebooks, dvds and lots and lots of photos on her website www.jennifernicolelee.com.
Dr Fitness chimed in with his best fitness tips for 2007. But I forgot to write them down so you'll have to listen to get them.
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by close to 3 dozen people who are interested in what he eats each day. Who would have thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's eating 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 Twitters 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
Hot mom, Kathie Larkin was in the studio lending her thoughts and laughter. You know Kathie as the host of Real Savvy Moms.

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. We're working on ways to make those tips available to all our listeners. 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 David Spade's "Showbiz Show" on Comedy Central 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.
