about how you can get in beach shape with Erica Gragg the co-founder of Amansala the eco chic resort in Tulum, Mexico and creator of the one and only, original "Bikini Bootcamp" in Mexico as well as the brand new bestselling "Bikini Bootcamp" book. Erica said that Amansala is a destination where "people (mostly women and limited to 25 at a time) renew themselves and focus on getting fit spiritually as well as physically." She took our listeners through a typical day at Amansala where you do things like walk on the secluded beach, enjoy massages, explore Mayan ruins, and eat the freshest fish and veggies you can imagine. So if you are interesting in a healthy vacation where you can get away from it all and drop a few pounds then you better check out Amansala.

Jessica Myers from Garmin (the GPS folks) came on to discuss a new Garmin product - the "Forerunner 305" that combines a watch with a heart rate monitor and a gps device. This amazing watch tracks your every move while you run or play sports. You can see your heart rate and your exact running course. Dr Fitness absolutely loved it. He had it on while he played soccer and realized he doesn't run anywhere near the amount he thought he did. It also works with software that lets you track your progress and it even interacts with Google Earth. Please go to www.garmin.com to get more information on this amazing device .
And last but certainly not least we had on Rodney Moses all the way from Australia calling in to tell us about his great new website FatSecret.com Fat Secret has been signing up about 1000 members a week to their vibrant active community. This a totally FREE website where members share their actual experiences with the various diets that are out there. This is a place you can read true stories of users of diets like South Beach, Atkins, Fat Smash, etc. You'll see recipes that they love and read the good, the bad and the ugly about these diets. This way you can kind of see what to expect if you go on them. And if you do try one of them you will have a built in support group of people who are also on the diets sharing what works and what doesn't. Please go their website www.fatsecret.com to sign up.
The Doctor had some interesting wellness tips in his latest installment of ...Dr Fitness' "Things You Can Do Today" series. Tonight it was How To Avoid A Migraine Headache. Here are a few of Dr. Fitness' tips on how to avoid a migraine. Number 1, start a headache journal where you track when and where you are when the headache started. Number 2, pay close attention to what you were eating or drinking just prior to the headache coming on. And Number 3, check the time of day the headaches occur. The Fat Guy noticed he would begin getting a headache the moment Dr Fitness started talking. He had a few more tips and he gave lots more detail in these tips but you'll have to listen to get them.

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 nine year kid Max made his radio debut in his new show "Kid Power Radio." 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. 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. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you this show is rocketing up the charts!!!
