SILVER SPRING, Md., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- America's best-known personal trainer, Bob Greene, has helped millions improve their overall fitness through everyday healthier eating and increased physical activity.

Since being introduced to the world on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Greene has changed the way people eat, exercise and live. An exercise physiologist and certified personal trainer specializing in weight loss, metabolism and fitness, he has touched countless lives by providing the keys for leading a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. In the upcoming BEST LIFE SPECIALS, WHAT'S MAKING YOU FAT and I'M FAT AGAIN, Greene offers easy-to-implement steps for improving everyday routines that will help audiences shed winter pounds and prepare for warmer weather.

WHAT'S MAKING YOU FAT: A BEST LIFE SPECIAL, premiering Thursday, March 26, at 8 PM (ET/PT), counters the widespread misinformation currently confusing the public about effective fitness and weight loss. In this Discovery Studios production, Greene looks back at his career and counts down his personal Top 10 Diet and Exercise Myths--busting each one. Greene helps two people--36-year-old Jennifer and 46-year-old Kabin--in their attempts to lose weight. Jennifer is working toward shedding her image as the "heavy kid in class" to regain both her own happiness and her physical well-being. Kabin, an "emotional eater," aims at changing his sedentary lifestyle, knowing that his current weight could lead to high blood pressure or even a stroke. From Myth #10 through Myth #1, this is an hour of information that will help put an end to viewers' dieting frustrations and failures.

I'M FAT AGAIN: A BEST LIFE SPECIAL, premiering Thursday, May 28, at 8 PM (ET/PT), focuses on the agonizing weight fluctuation process known as "yo-yo dieting." Greene teaches three frustrated individuals how they can permanently break the cycle of crash diets followed by rapid weight gain by observing his principles of balance, moderation and physical activity. In this special, Greene helps 32-year-old Joya, a classic yo-yo dieter, who gains back more weight each time a diet trend fades. I'M FAT AGAIN also features an appearance by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Discovery Health's chief medical officer and medical expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show. Together, Dr. Oz and Greene discuss gastric bypass surgery as the special follows a married couple who underwent the surgery but defeated any chance of success by not changing their couch-potato lifestyles.

The best life specials, WHAT'S MAKING YOU FAT and I'M FAT AGAIN, were produced by Discovery Studios for Discovery Health. Wendy Douglas is the executive producer of both specials for Discovery Health, and Maggie Friedman is the producer for Discovery Studios. For additional information, please visit
