      ​Dear Sirs,
      I am currently finishing up a book regarding fitness at age 40,50,60 and up, to be sold initially in the US market as a published/printed work, and later on as an eBook (which is just an electronic form of the printed version).
      The book covers overweight issues, and how to determine if the reader is in fact overweight. The book then goes on to talk about both strength machines and cardio exercises (how to perform them), diets (what to eat and what to not eat) and then supplements (and their use).
      The book also includes tips on “walking” at least 20 minutes on days not working out.
      I would like to include an image (BMI Visual Graph) found at your web page: 
      Can you please put me in touch (email) with the right person?
      Very truly yours,
