On tonight's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about Happy Days and Healthy Living from one of the stars of Happy Days Cathie Silvers who played Jenny Picolo in the hit sitcom. Cathie told us about her transition from child of Sgt Bilko, Phil Silvers to growing up in Orlando, FL to going back to Hollywood onto the set of the TV show she herself grew up watching to being a mom and having her teenage daughter encourage her to be the healthy living expert that she is now. Cathie had some great tips about how to transition from being a meat eater (go anti-biotic free and wild fish) to a vegetarian (go organic to avoid pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to a vegan (no dairy, eggs or animal products all the way to raw (no/low heat cooking). She is the host of the Healthy Living Show and the Healthy Living Kids Show. She also is involved in www.organicfarmersmarket.org where you can get all kinds of organic products.

Next up we had on our friend, Jessica Denay founder of the Hot Moms Club. This amazing woman has created a website that has evolved into books, products and a community for moms everywhere. She told us she has a new book coming out soon called The Hot Mom To Be Handbook...Womb With A View and in January her website will be completely redesigned with all kinds of Web 2.0 features and tools. She already has some of the best mom experts out there on her site contributing to this very supportive and inspiring community. The Hot Mom's Club is an organization dedicated to bringing mothers together who refuse to fall into the stereotype of the typical American "mom" . They might be undaunted professionals, unapologetically sexy or simply dynamic women who break the mold, Hot Mom's empower each other to redefine motherhood. It is more attitude than look.

Next we had on sleep expert Lee with SleepTracker. SleepTracker continuously monitors signals from your body that indicate whether you are asleep or awake. Because you wear it on your wrist like a watch, its internal sensors can detect even the most subtle physical signals from your body. SleepTracker finds your best waking moments, so that waking up has never been easier. Dr Fitness has called SleepTracker one of his best holiday gifts of 2007 so be sure to check them out at their website www.sleeptracker.com

Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by over 30 people who are interested in what he eats each day. Who would have thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's eating exploits on Twitter. Food journals are great ways to lose weight and the Fat Guy is always trying anything in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So take a peek into his food diary. You never know what he'll write. Somehow he can stay compliant to writing on Twitter but he can't fit in exercise each day. That's right, moments after he eats something the Fat Guy Twitters about it and you can follow him so that one day if you try real hard you too can look like the Fat Guy. Please go to www.twitter.com/fatguy

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 kid Max has been doing a radio show called "Kid Power Radio" for awhile now and you should check it out. Tiffany from The Daily Candy called his family friendly radio show "Hilarious!" 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. He had a big show recently he interviewed Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. 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. He has gotten emails from kids from England, Australia, China and even the US. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you his show is rocketing up the charts!!!
