Colonel Bob Weinstein's latest book, Food and Fitness Journal, is meant to provide a practical means for anyone to self-motivate, get and stay in physical shape. We can all benefit from his unique combination of military
discipline, motivational speaking and the beach boot camp of Fort Lauderdale. The book provides nice quantitative definitions of concepts needed to measure energy intake and one4s state of health, such as Basal metabolic rate, and body mass index. There are useful motivational quotes and caloric illustrations. I especially liked how he equated food and exercise , as if to say, before you put anything into your mouth, think about how much exercise you'll need in order to burn off those calories. There are charts galore to help improve your physical condition and many useful suggestions to ward
off overweight and boredom.
