Secrets of a Former Fat Girl, The Million Calorie Marcher, Plus the Latest From CrunchGear and Fit Sugar
The most entertaining weight loss and fitness podcast show on radio." Please click on the POD button to listen to the latest Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy radio show podcast broadcasting live each week from Atlanta, GA, USA.
On tonight's show, Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny
about how you can lose boatloads of weight without gastric bypass surgery or crazy fad diets. Imagine that! First we had on Gary Marino who lost 150 pounds through the amazing eat less and exercise more diet and later on the show we had Lisa Delaney, Health magazine editor who went from 185 pounds to a size two and kept it off for nearly 20 years using similar methods.
Lisa, author of "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl" shared lots of weight loss tips from her inspiring memoir tonight. She encouraged overweight women to keep their weight loss attempt a secret because of the people who will try and undermine you. A lot of time your family members will try and sabotage you by teasing you or overly scrutinizing your food choices so you have got to be ready for that. She also told our listeners what it was like when she hit rock bottom and what she did to transform herself from a fat girl to an avid marathon runner. You can get more information about Lisa, her book and her great blog at www.formerfatgirl.com
Gary Marino is on a mission to help fight obesity. He has gone from being a 397 pound hopeless food addict to a nearly svelte 240 pound healthy activist for change. Gary went on a Million Calorie March down the Eastern Seaboard in an effort to bring attention to the obesity crisis that is gripping America (especially our youth). He has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for this cause and has helped inspire thousands of people to lose weight. Gary's book "Big & Tall Chronicles: Misadventures of a Lifelong Food Addict" tells his uplifting story in a humorous and poignant way. And soon you'll be able to watch the movie version of the book "Million Calorie March: The Movie" will be released later this year at the Boston Film Festival. For more information on Gary and all the things he's up to check out his website www.millioncaloriemarch.com
Tonight we also had on two of the biggest bloggers out there... Sweet Susi May from FitSugar and Peter Ha from CrunchGear. You have to listen to their segments with a paper and pencil handy because they were throwing out great gadgets, gear and websites left and right.
Susi in her regular FitSugar segment to our show had great fashion gear tips for the ladies. Did you know that there is a new bikini for women that has a drawstring so you can be active at the beach without any fears of losing your bottoms? I did not know that but Susi did. She also had some tips about the dangers of soda and a new water bottle that holds two beverages in one bottle. Amazing. Ladies, if you are not going to FitSugar everyday you are seriously missing out. they are blogging like 20 times a day with all the latest recipes, fitness gear, celebrity news, exercise tips. FitSugar and all the Sugar blogs should be on your must read list each day. Check them out at www.FitSugar.com
And guys for the first time in Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy history we had on someone from CrunchGear, part of Michael Arrington's empire. CrunchGear doesn't always have fitness gear there (that's why the Fat Guy likes it) but it is the place where the Fat Guy finds out about all the latest gadgets and computer stuff. So if you want to know how the new iPhone is performing or a what is the latest must have computer accessory CrunchGear is the place to look. I get it in my inbox everyday. So tonight Peter Ha, updated us on what is the latest gadgets for marathon training and getting more enjoyment out of outdoor activities.

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!!!
