Jami Bernard's Tips On How To Lose Weight While Watching Movies. And Dr. Fitness Gives His Tips On Breaking Out Of A Slump.
"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 losing weight from Jami Bernard. Jami was the Film Critic for the New York Daily News. Her latest book is "The Incredible Shrinking Critic: 75 Pounds and Still Counting: My Excellent Adventure in Weight Loss." Jami bravely chronicled her weight loss in her column in the newspaper. Then wrote her book to summarize all that she learned. Her book is funny, informative and brutally honest. Losing 75 pounds is hard enough, but imagine doing it with New York City watching your every move. That's tough. So a big congrats to Jami for losing the weight and keeping it off. We got to talk to her about some of the crazy diets she tried over they years and what it was that ultimately worked for her. You'll have to listen to the show to find out what her weight loss secret was. You can check out her website www.jamibernard.com and buy this book or any of her other books. Be sure to check out her blog, it is filled with insights into the life of a film critic, a best selling author as well as her wonderful weight loss success story.
Dr Fitness also shared his tips on what to do if you are in an exercise slump. You know like the one I am perpetually in. Where you just cannot get motivated to move your body. This happens to me quite a bit now that the temperature has dropped into the 40s and 50s. Here are Dr. Fitness' tips to get out of that slump...Number 1, crank up the tunes, listen to music or watch TV, talk on your cell phone... do anything to take your mind off exercising Number 2, schedule time into your exercise program to take breaks, every 6 weeks you should take a week off. 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 for the second week in a row. She is the triathlete with the fake leg. She and Peter finished 1st in the fifth round and we will be tracking her progress each week on our show. there is definitely trouble in paradise for Sarah's and Peter's relationship. I think they have a better chance on winning the Amazing Race than staying a couple. Check out the Amazing Race website here http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race10/ and Sarah's website here www.iamsarah.org
Another highlight of this show was the Fat Guy sharing his recent trip to Burts pumpkin farm and the apple orchards in the North Georgia mountains.
We also talked about Josh, a guy who is a competitive weightlifter who asked us to sponsor his attempt to be on the U.S. Olympic Weightlifting Team. Currently he is ranked 13th in the United States. What do you think, should we sponsor this guy or not. We'll let the listeners decide.
And as a bonus to our listeners here's a link to an article on the best diet and weight loss websites from the Los Angeles Times. I don't know how it happened but the Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy website didn't make the list. It must have been an oversight. http://www.latimes.com/features/health/la-he-lean23oct23,1,2604503,print.story?coll=la-headlines-health
