On our show Beth really inspired us to be tenacious with our passions and dreams and make things happen for ourselves. Her philosophy says it all..."If you take care of yourself, you can then cultivate others and together nurture the Earth."
We also had on Ellen Lau from Zone Diet At Home. Ellen very generously sent the Fat Guy a weeks worth of the Zone Diet food in a effort to have him lose some weight and keep him on this planet for a little longer. The food was awesome. The quality was top notch. The Fat Guy did get a little overwhelmed when the huge box of portion controlled meals and snacks arrived on his doorstep. it took tremenous will power on his opart not to eat the entire box worth of food in one sitting. But overall he was very impressed with the whole operation. The Fat Guy's kid loved the mac and cheese and most of the healthy snacks that were in there, especially the soy bbq chips. They were a big hit for eveyone. to learn more about the Zone Diet at Home program go to their web site www.zonedietathome.com. There are plans that fit every budget and even the pickiest eater.
The Doctor also shared his tips on how to what to do if you suffer from fibromyalgia. Therapies that work include: acupuncture, cognitive behaviorial therapy, chiropractic and exercise. You'll have to listen to get the rest of his tips.
Dr. Fitness made it into the studio tonight so that was kind of a buzz kill for the Fat Guy but he tried to deal with it the best he could. We talked about some weight loss myths like...drinking water will cause you to lose weight (false); calories eaten after 8pm turn straight into fat (false). The Fat Guy tried to exercise last week and got depressed. We also talked a little about September 11 and how the Doctor, because of his intense fear of flying, initially thought the planes were crashing into the Twin Towers because of pilot error.
