Healthy Divorce Survival Tips From First Wives World. Eating Well Magazine. The UnAmerican Undiet. And Matt Bryzcki
On tonight's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy get the skinny about how to stay fit, healthy and happy while you're going through a divorce. Debbie Nigro, founding partner of First Wives World told us all about the first website that helps women (and men) navigate the rough waters of divorce. She explained that she is not selling divorce but rather is helping people deal with a broken dream. Some of her tips were: be sure to take care of yourself. Exercising helps your self-esteem and as you go through this you will realize that you can handle anything. For more please go to their website www.firstwivesworld.com and get help with the three stages of divorce - contemplating, navigating and moving on. There you will find a supportive, inspiring community of people going through the same things that you are going through. It's a safe place filled with women sharing their stories , strategies, laughter and wisdom.
We also had on Regular contributor Nicci Micco, Senior Editor of Eating Well magazine. She shared with our listeners the results of the research on foods that affect your libido. This was a hot topic. Did you know some of the foods that are supposed to improve your sex drive are foods that resemble certain body parts. I don't know for sure why Nicci brought this topic up, but it have something to do with her current pregnant state. Who knows. Please go to the Eating well website at www.eatingwell.com and you will find lots of fun free email newsletters you can subscribe to as well as a great column on Serves Two where you can get some perfect Valentines Day meal recipes for you and your special someone.
We also had author, comedian and all around great guy Pete D'Alessandro on to talk about his book The Unamerican Undiet. Pete chronicles his amazing story about how he was depressed and fed up with his weight, hit rock bottom then did something about it. He lost 40 pounds in about 3 months by eliminating some very American food ingredients from his diet like sugar and white flour from his diet along with fried foods, rich sauces and desserts. Then he supercharged his exercise workout with the help of a trainer and then like magic he lost the weight. He has kept it off for three or so years now without any drastic setbacks. Check out his book and read all about it. He writes in a funny personal way. You'll like it. Check it out on his website www.unamericanundiet.com
We closed the show with one of Dr Fitness' and Kathie Larkin's favorite exercise book authors and experts Matt Bryzci. Matt is the Assistant Director of Campus Recreation/Fitness at Princeton University and he has written some of the most important books about strength training and exercise in the industry. Matt came on the show and tried to dispel some of the many myths about fitness like Does Strength Training Make You Bulky? He says No. Can you do sport specific strength training? No. Should women strength train differently than men? No. There was a lot more great stuff but you'll have to listen to get it. Check out Matt's books at any Barnes and Noble, on Amazon or straight from his publisher at www.cardinalpub.com
Dr Fitness also gave us his Fitness Tips on unconventional ways to use food. Number 1 Use pepper in your wash to whiten those whites. Number 2. Try some white vinegar to get those stubborn deodorant sweat stains from the pits of those shirts. Number 3 Slap some cold potato slices on those puffy eyes after a long night of partying. There were lots more tips but you have to listen tot get them.
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by close to 3 dozen 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.

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. 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.
