On tonight's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy learn how to lose weight while Doing Lunch with Roger Troy Wilson. Roger was guy who retired at 41 as a millionaire. He might of been rich but he was also extremely overweight in fact he weighed 430 pounds. He says he had a 62 inch waist when he was at his heaviest. He tried every diet, he even had his wife gain weight in order to join weight watchers so he could get their diet plan.
Then, almost miraculously, he discovered the start of an eating program that might work for him. He ate his son’s frozen grapes and then swapped them for his nightly bags of chips and dip. In only a few weeks he had lost 20 pounds. Little by little he started eating loads of fruits, vegetables and lean meats...Even starchy vegetables – the ones the low-carb plans didn’t allow. He was consuming 1000's of calories a day, more than any diet had allowed. Better yet? There were no points, no food scales, no reading labels or counting carbs. All real foods and REAL portions. Roger stumbled on a diet that made him“Feel Full Faster and Longer?. His book, Lets Do Lunch, shares his story and his recommendation for the foods you should be eating in order to lose weight. these are foods that bypass the stomach and go right to the colon. An amazing weight loss story - Roger has lost 230 pounds and kept them off for years now. He is offering Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy listeners a special deal if you mention us when you order.

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.

Tiffany from The Daily Candy called his family friendly radio show "Hilarious!" This is a great show for your kids.

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.
