The Doctor had some his latest installment of ...Dr Fitness' "Things You Can Do Today" To Get Rid of Your Bad Breath Tomorrow. Here are a few of Dr. Fitness' secrets about how to eliminate bad breath. Number 1, eat more citrus - it seems that the acid from Vitamin C helps get rid of bad breath - so eat a fruit. Number 2, enjoy some yogurt - it's got to be active culture though - sedentary culture just doesn't cut it. And Number 3, produce more saliva in your mouth by sucking on hard candy or a mint like say an Altoid. this seems like cheating but he said it. He had a few more tips but you'll have to listen to get them.

Remember we are now on Michigan radio station WKNW this day. 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 day. 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. 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!!!
