Paul Kalil Tells How He Lost 40 Pounds in Army Veteran's New Book

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PressExposure) October 20, 2009 -- Col. Weinstein, author and fitness beach boot camp instructor, will be releasing his new book soon, Weight Loss - Twenty Pounds in Ten Weeks - Move It to Loss It. His book starts off with some inspiring weight loss stories. Paul Kalil explains how he finally found a useful, lifestyle based way to lose excess weight and keep it off.

Two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight and one-third are obese. An estimated 70 percent of diabetes risk in the U.S. can be attributed to excess weight.

Colonel Weinstein, who has been featured on the History Channel, has combined his thirty years of military experience about keeping soldiers fit, created a weight loss program for civilians that will last a lifetime.

His new book is full of useful tools to overcome challenges and achieve realistic, lifestyle based weight loss. You will find an extremely useful ten week exercise and eating plan to lose twenty pounds. Full of easy-to-use tools to organize and implement the program: exercise photos, ten week exercise chart, 1,200 and 1,600 calorie menus, calorie burn charts, workout log, food diary and more.

An excerpt of from Colonel Bob's book: "Colonel Bob: What lessons have you learned on your weight loss journey.

Paul: There is an exercise program for everyone. I never thought I would ever get involved with a fitness class. But I learned that exercise can double as entertainment if you choose the right activity for you, be it a class, a sport, or your own program.

I don’t exercise just because I want to lose weight. I find activities that I really enjoy doing just for the sake of doing them. Through those activities, I have made friends, faced challenges and accomplished things I never imagined I could. The weight loss is almost an afterthought.

Colonel Bob: What were some of the phases of weight and eating habits you went through?

Paul: My weight fluctuations have always coincided with personal changes. I tend to eat less when I am stressed or distracted. I eat considerably more when I am inactive or bored.

I am addicted to carbs, especially sweets, but I find that I crave sweets less when I exercise regularly. I don’t know if this is physiological or psychological, but it definitely is so.

My most recent weight loss has coincided with some significant lifestyle changes which have been both positive and negative, and have resulted in changes in diet and routine. Overall I have tried to stick to a reduced calorie, low sugar diet, and maintain my regular exercise routine. But I have fallen off the wagon from time to time and given in to cravings, or missed workouts here and there. Change is inevitable and nothing is forever. That includes good and bad habits, too."
