4. Taste This TV - INSIDE SCOOP: You`re the first to know this.  I`ll now be appearing on Taste This TV, which airs nationally on PBS stations, doing a segment called "Descramble The Menu" where I`ll be rating restaurant meals based on the "FMS Food Trifecta"...meaning the 3 P` pleasing a meal is to our Pocketbook, Pallet, and Paunch.  I also call it my "BTW" or "By The Way" in the appeal of a restaurant to our Budget, Tastebuds, and Waistline.  I`m taping my first 2 segments on Saturday April 25th in NYC and you can checkout our website for more details.
5. Friend In Need - I went with my good friend Vivica Fox to the premiere party for her new TV show, The Cougar on TVLand, and I want to rally the support of the greatest people I know - the FMS Members - to support her by watching the show.  You probably get TVLand wherever you are so catch her show Wednesdays at it reruns constantly throughout the week.  You can even leave her a comment on the show blog at  Let`s help Viv achieve much success!

Here`s an article by a reporter at the party:
Don`t forget our new slogan - When times get tough, work it out!
REMINDER - One of my biggest goals for this year is to have our book, Fitness Made Simple: The Power to Change Your Body & Life, make the New York Times Bestseller List!  It`s the work I`m most proud of because this book contains a complete blueprint for anyone to build the body of their dreams and start living the life they`ve always wanted.  It eliminates all of the guesswork by providing the exact lean muscle building exercises and fat fighting nutritional meal plan, including recipes which take 5 minutes or less to prepare, that myself and thousands of other male and female Fitness Made Simple Members, from teenagers to grandparents, have used to achieve their goals.  If you haven`t ordered a copy yet, please do so today.  Every order helps further increase awareness that we don`t have to settle for less than what we want and that we all have the power to look and feel great.  You can get it at or at your local Borders and Barnes & Noble bookstores.
