In this episode we take inspiration from the culture of the 1980's to teach the concept of viewing the world through the goggles of a fitness minded person to get active!In the late 80's to early 90's kids use to use the term PHAT to describe a girl who was Pretty Hot And Tempting (PHAT), Dr. Ray, however, has a different meaning for the acronym PHAT…this acronym will open your eyes to the endless possibilities for activity in an average day. Also in this episode we discuss the 20 "Metabolic Off Switches" as described by Dr. Robert K.
