Lt. Colonel Bob Weinstein, age 55, a.k.a. the Health Colonel and know by his clients as Colonel Bob, was interviewed by the award winning talk show host and features editor and writer, Sandy Zimmerman for an article in the Las Vegas Tribune which appeared on October 25, 2006, in the Health and Fitness Section, titled, "What Can You Do to Improve Your Health?"

Weinstein is a retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel with 30 years of combined active duty and reserve service. He is based out of Fort Lauderdale and is self-employed with his own business The Health Colonel. He is a speaker, writer and fitness beach boot camp instructor.

Colonel Weinstein shared some of his valuable insights into healthy living at any age. Some of his tips on how to lead a healthy life:

"Do you want to predict the future about your health? Take a look at how you are living your life today. Your lifestyle today will have an impact on your health 5, 10 and 15 years from now."

"Focus on what you can do and eliminate all excuses."

"You're walking around with the most portable and affordable exercise equipment in the world -- your body!"

"Do you want to put the recreation back into your exercise routine? Take your workout outdoors and treat your environment like a playground."

"Develop a philosophy of movement. We live in a society that cultivates a philosophy of sedentary living."

"Eat predominantly unrefined foods with lots of whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables."

"You do not want to belong to the club, WWC or Wheelchairs, Walkers and Canes. Do something on a regular basis to make sure that you can keep using all your body parts as you age."

"Reduce those portion sizes and quantity of food and you'll reduce that pant or dress size.

"This is my calling." As he says, "There are enemy soldiers on American soil. The names of these soldiers are Heart Disease, Cancer and Stroke. They are killing over 3,000 Americans a day."

"Every physician who prescribes medication needs to offer their patients a realistic, strategic, long-term lifestyle plan to get them off of medication, where feasible."
