On today's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy we opened the show with Kimberly Frey, a finalist in the 2009 Weight Watchers Inspiring Stories of Change contest. Kimberly needed to lose 40 pounds in order to be a healthy weight so she could donate a kidney to her sick child. She lost the weight by going to Weight Watchers.

Next up we had on our good friend Robert Davis, fitness journalist and author of The Healthy Skeptic. Today he shared some scientific truths about organic fruits, vegetables and meats. Are they worth the money? Robert is our resident health mythbuster. His book is a must read if you get overwelmed with information about heath, fitness, wellness and don't know who is telling the truth. You can trust Robert.

We closed the show with CNNHealth medical doctor Dr Melina Jampolis. Dr Melina shared some tips to be heart healthy. She also gave us some tips form her last book and told us about her new Dr Melina Bar. Learn more about what she is up to at www.drmelina.com
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by thousands of people who are interested in what he does each day. Who would have thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's 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 used to Twitter 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. Now these Wellness Minutes are available online. 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 TMZ 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, someone from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and even Miranda Cosgrove star of Nickelodeon's Hit TV Show iCarly. 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.
