Bob will also share his "Seven Keys to PERMANENT Weight Loss" from his audio book. Asked about what really motivated Col. Weinstein to produce this audio book he responds, "I have been visiting my great aunt Erlie the past few months in an assisted living home. She's 90 years old and uses a walker. These visits have allowed me to really experience first hand the results of an unhealthy lifestyle. All those people who can hardly get around with their walkers and canes. Now some may say that this is what happens when you get old. No! It's what happens when you do not take charge of your lifestyle when it comes to your health! Longevity does not equate to quality of life. Seven out of ten Americans die from heart disease, cancer or stroke and the rest are just suffering along. It is a statistical fact that 90 percent of the health related issues that arise are lifestyle related. No ... that's not what must happen to you when you get old! We pre-program the quality of our lives by how we live, today. We make that decision through our actions and must ask the tough questions, "Will I belong to the ninety percent who will end up with those lifestyle related diseases? Or will I take charge and make those positive changes that will ensure a happy and healthy life all the way up into those ripe old senior years?" Don't go with the flow on this one! Do it for yourself, your loved ones and especially our children. Stop the excuses. The statistics cry out for change! Are you listening?"

FOSTERING A NEW APPROACH TO AGING...The American Health Association is a unique non-profit organization designed to help you approach aging in a new and better way. The AHA encourages you to take charge of your health protocol by taking proactive, preventative steps, combining the best of East/West therapies in a healthier model.

The American Health Association currently offers five major programs to help you transition to a preventative aging model.

The American Volunteer Corps consists of individuals trained for volunteer and internship positions in a myriad of healing and helping disciplines. These are the people that make things happen. They’re an important part of the American Volunteer Corps. The Corps incorporates the Junior Volunteer Corps (JVC) and the Senior Volunteer Corps (SVC). The word “Senior” is used to indicate 'higher in rank, authority or experience' and not older, elder or retired. The Corps are volunteers who are trained for professional volunteer positions in a myriad of healing and helping disciplines including Peer Counselors, Mentorships, Grief and Bereavement and a whole host of specialized programs in the helping arts. Training consists of didactic & Socratic method of instruction in group format underscoring life experience and learning styles as a teaching methodology. The aim here is to give active adults the 4 P’s of continued life sustenance. Passion, Purpose with Productivity in a social Partnership with and in their respective communities. Once trained you are placed within 5 miles of a members home and in effect become “longevity coaches” to the community.

The Lifelong Learning Foundation provides courses that draw on the wisdom and experience of professionals and peers alike on topics such as "Understanding the Emotions of Grief."

The Center for Healthy Aging offers support groups that meet weekly, educational courses, and a host of outreach programs.

The Mental Health Foundation concentrates on outplacement mental health services that include re-socialization, re-skilling, job coaching and placement, housing, and social services.
