Dr. Z and Bitterman Podcast


We talk about important life issues.  In today’s show we talk about people that have expensive cars that feel they need a huge sticker to let you know what it is, how toilet protectors affect our lives, why milk hormones only benefit women, what happen to the receptionist that killed herself over putting a prank call through to Princess Kate, the difference between face soap and body soap, and why women don’t like balls.

Life or Death Get in Shape


20120328-095215.jpg

I have found that most people have no idea how to eat healthy. The first problem is that most people don’t cook. It is extremely hard for you to eat healthy and eat out for almost all meals. The second problem is that people eat so much candy and artificial food that they do not enjoy the flavors of real food.
It does not take long for your taste to change after you stop eating artificial foods. Real food can be full of flavor. Healthy food can be filling and delicious but you have to take time to plan out and cook meals.
Your health effects yourself, your marriage, your family, and you country. If you think it’s ok to put on weight when you get married look at the divorce rate. You have an obligation to your spouse to stay in shape and attractive and this goes for the men too!
The picture above says it all. Make time now or suffer the consequences later. Take the time to educate yourself on healthy eating and fitness. Find a hobby that is active such as biking, tennis, hiking, etc. Get magazines such as Natural Health, Men’s Health, or Fitness RX. Go to a Naturopathic Doctor who will be able to help you get started. Lastly, get a personal trainer. Be careful here. Look for someone that is certified through: ACSM, NASM, or has a degree in exercise physiology. You have to work hard and in the beginning it is going to hurt. Man up and suck it up. After about 3-4 weeks you are going to be feeling better and enjoying the burn. I want to you to send me some before pics now and let me know your goals. You can do it! If you have questions comment or email me.


New Year Resolutions and Video of an Awesome Dog


Well tomorrow is New Years Eve.  Next year the world is coming to an end (LOL) so this year your resolutions have to be amazing.  So the normal resolution is to get in shape and most people work really hard at this for about a week and the dedicated people last 2 weeks.

This guy exercises and meditates at the same time

So how is this year going to be different.  I used to be a Personal Trainer and I am still very much into fitness.  The key is to have fun.  Going to the gym will not alone get you fit.  You have to know what you are doing and you have to enjoy it.  This may take time because in the beginning it will hurt and you will suffer a bit.  If you do not like the gym then don’t go!  There are plenty other things you can do: biking, running, swimming, soccer, tennis, cross-country skiing, etc.  The best thing you can do is sign up for a race or tournament that way you will hold yourself accountable.  Also if possible get a coach or personal trainer.  Also there are great apps that can help you such as all sport GPSFitDeck, and Livestrong MyPlate.

So what else are you going to do.  I mean now you are going to look good and feel good so what are you going to do!  For some of you, you need to stop being scared of life and get out the and enjoy it.  “If you risk nothing, you risk everything.” (Geena Davis)  Some people won’t go biking because they might get hurt, some will not go sky diving or scuba diving for the same reason.  Yea I know you have a family that depends on you but that’s what insurance is for, use it.  Watching your life pass you by will kill you faster than any activity, well base jumping might kill you faster so if you have a family you probably shouldn’t do it but you get my point have fun and take risks.

Next year is new opportunity.  Have fun!

Lastly, I will leave you with a quote.  

“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
― Albert Einstein

We all forget this sometimes but one day that garbage man might be your boss.  We all have to start somewhere and we all have set backs and that garbage man has great potential.  We are all equal and sometimes it is a very small gesture that makes your life turn from ordinary to extraordinary.
