I Stopped Counting Calories


It’s been 22 years since I started helping people lose weight.  It’s been about 30 years since I made a personal decision to make health and prevention of disease a personal priority.  But it has only been a few years since I’ve come across powerful research regarding health and disease prevention. One of the things [...]

Eat Out and Enjoy It!


Sixty or seventy years ago, eating out in a restaurant or buying takeout food was practically nonexistent in our community.  Kosher eateries were very rare, and most people weren’t able to spend any extra money on what, at the time, was an extravagance.  Even in the non-Jewish world, the idea of fast food style restaurants [...]

Are You Still Dieting?  Stop Now! (Part 2)

Don’t be Hungry


The benefits of being a normal and healthy weight are countless. Most adults between ages 18 and 49 gain one half to one kilo each year.  Stopping and preventing weight gain should be a priority! If your weight is in a healthy range, focus on maintaining that weight by watching what you eat and exercising. [...]

Getting Back on Track—It’s After the Chagim!


Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Succos are now behind us. Most of us have been over-eating and we were most likely very inactive both before and during the Yom Tov season.  Although the incentive might be there to start taking better care of our health and to lose weight (your clothes may be tight), it [...]

Starting Over Again—Yet Again


We don’t like to let go.  But going back to our mundane lives now has to happen and here we go again!  The holiday season has passed and all of us have been mostly sedentary and we certainly have overeaten.  So what are we going to do about it this time—go on a diet?  Commit [...]

Are You Eating Enough?


It makes sense—just eat less and you will lose weight. That is what Davida and Gittel, thought. Both in their mid to late 40’s they came to me for consultations on weight loss several years ago.  Both were on calorie restricted programs and were exercising to some extent and both were very frustrated as all [...]

It doesn’t have to cost so much!


It sometimes seems that in order to stay healthy, it might cost a lot of money.  Granted, not being healthy will ultimately cost more money than staying healthy, but for many it seems like we must put out a lot of money to buy healthy foods, see a dietician, buy exercise equipment, go to the [...]

It’s That Time of Year…


Here we are in the midst of the month of Elul, the last year in the Jewish calendar.  It’s a time of reflection and it is also a time of preparation.  We are all focusing now on introspection and planning for Rosh HaShanah, the Day of Judgment, and the ten days of tshuva leading to [...]

Don’t Make Weight Loss Mistakes


Roughly 70% of us could stand to lose some weight.  Some people need to only lose a few kilos, others may have years of work to do in order to get into a range of healthy weight.  But as we all know, the chances of long-term success aren’t very good.  With some help from Web [...]
