LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern American society is filled with easily accessible fatty foods, a growing obesity epidemic and a general lack of healthy living. In his new book, "Lose Weight, Feel Great: How I Lost Over 60lbs. with the Help of a Personal Trainer" (published by AuthorHouse), author Kevin Given tells of his personal struggles with obesity, how he lost over 60 pounds with the help of a personal trainer, and how others can change their lifestyles and bodies as well. Given writes:
This book is different from other weight loss books because it is my personal story of how I overcame the obstacle of obesity. I also avoid going into unnecessary detail. I find that most problems with weight loss books are that they get bogged down with details on how certain things work. My book cuts to the chase and makes it simple. "If you do this, then this is what will happen." If you eat certain foods, this is how they will affect your system. If you do a certain exercise; for example dumb-bell curls, then this is what will happen; your biceps will develop. There are no unnecessary details here that will only slow you down. In my book you will find the simple ABCs of weight loss and fitness.
Given had ongoing issues with his weight for over 20 years with many failed attempts at change. He tried numerous fad diets that never worked, so he then decided to hire a personal trainer to aid him in losing weight and keeping it off for good. Now a certified personal trainer himself, Given hopes to help others through a combination of historical knowledge of human health, personal testimony, exercises and fitness techniques, nutrition, and other information vital to weight loss and good health.
While the use of this book and practicing a healthy lifestyle are certainly reliable ways to lose weight and get in shape, Given also believes the aid of a personal trainer helps immensely in this journey toward the ideal you. He writes:
If the military sent a soldier to basic training with only an army manual and no guidance, that soldier wouldn't learn much! How many soldiers would get up at four or five a.m. without the drill sergeants going through the hall with a stick and a garbage can banging as loudly as he or she can? Who would be motivated to do pushups if the drill sergeant didn't yell, "Drop and give me twenty"? Just as the soldier is guided to his peak performance during army basic training, so an individual seeking to get into better shape will be guided by the personal trainer into reaching his/her goal!
