On tonight's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about making swimming in the pool fun with the SwimP3. Tim Elson with Finis Inc. creators of this amazing mp3 player for the pool uses an innovative sound transfer technology that gives you amazing sound quality while you swim. This device doesn't use ear buds which cause that swooshing sound underwater, they use bone conduction to give you great sound while you swim those boring laps. Please check out their website www.finisinc.com or www.swimp3.com for more information and to order yours for the holidays.
We also had our friend Nicci Micco, editor of Eating Well magazine on to share some tips straight out of the magazine on "Foods That Keep You Young." The top seven foods that keep you young are: 1-yogurt, 2-olive oil 3-fish 4- you'll have to listen for the rest. Sorry. Or better yet check out the magazine on news stands everywhere or online at www.eatingwell.com Sign up for their great newsletters while you're there.
Next up we had on Fitz with Fitzness International talking about raising fit kids. Some of her tips were to only give your kids healthy food choices at home and put a bounce house in your living room to get your kids moving. She had some other wild ideas and she talked at length about The Wiggles so be sure to check out the whole interview. Please go to her new and improved websites for more great info www.thatsfit.com and www.fitzness.com She is also an expert on AOL.
Last but not least we had on the smartest person ever to appear on the show...Cory Kidd, inventor of Autom the robotic weight loss coach. Autom helps you by encouraging you to stick with your diet to create long-term weight loss and keep those extra pounds off. Fifteen robots were recently used in a controlled test and Autom by far was most instrumental in helping the participants lose weight of the three things tested. They only have prototypes but for more information please go to their website www.intuitiveautomata.com Autom will be available for purchase soon.
Dr Fitness had some fitness tips to help keep you on track to lose weight or at least maintain your weight this holiday season. First, make healthy substitutions in your holiday recipes. Second, try a holiday 5k or fun run as a family event. Third, before going to a holiday party eat a healthy snack so you don't overeat at the party. He had lots more tips but you'll have to listen to get them.
Please continue making Dr Fitness jealous by following the Fat Guy on Twitter. As we've mentioned 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 crazy things in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So you can now peek into his food diary. 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 to see exactly what the fat guy eats. We now have literally dozens of people who are following him so please join in.

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. 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. He has gotten emails from kids from England, Australia, China and even the US. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you his show is rocketing up the charts!!!
