New TV show segment...Fun on Washington DC`s top drivetime radio show...Exciting Twitter contest to win FREE FMS DVD...Special savings on fat loss supplement!

1. New TV Show Segment - My Q/A segment from this weeks broadcast of the new TV show, Live It Up! with Donna Drake & Fran Capo, is now online at: out the benefits of "cheat meals" and "off days"!  I`m also very excited about the fun segments I`ve been doing for Taste This TV, a national cooking series that runs on over 200 US TV stations.  I appear on the new season, starting this summer nationwide, where I rate various restaurant meals on my "Foodie Trifecta 3 P`s Scale" in terms of how pleasing they are to the palate, pocketbook, and paunch.  That`s also called the BTW guide...good for the budget, tastebuds, and waistline.  I`m hoping to help people eliminate all of the guesswork when it comes to eating out.

2. Top Drivetime Radio Show - I got a chance to catch-up with my buddies, Elliot and Diane, on Elliot In The Morning, which is the top drivetime radio show in Washington DC.  The usual shenanigans ensued as we chatted about reality TV, Celebrity Apprentice, "Speidi", and the new one-two punch plan I`m working on to battle the growing epidemic of childhood obesity.  Checkout the full interview at:

When you`re ready to take control of your body, health, and life...
This is the book to get.


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.


* For every Fitness Made Simple: The Power to Change Your Body & Life book purchased, a portion of the proceeds is being donated to the Step Out! Walk To Fight Diabetes.  I`m the Honorary Spokesperson for the walk being held in NY on October 11th and I hope to see many of the FMS Members participate.  So, if you don`t already have it, order the FMS book on and start doing your part to raise awareness about how to manage, treat, and prevent diabetes and its devastating effects.
