2018-11-15T10:01:55+00:00

Wow! Research concerning how we should take care of our health and well-being has really evolved.  The advice that health professionals, including me, were giving out a decade or two ago was faulty.  Research is ever evolving!

Cholesterol, Heart Disease and Statins—The Truth Comes Out (Part 1)

2018-10-31T10:14:26+00:00

I have contemplated writing an article on this subject for close to 10 years.  Why haven’t I?  Because this subject is controversial. Controversial?!  Everyone knows that high cholesterol causes heart attacks and strokes!!  Well, maybe not! It’s a complicated topic, but I think my readers need to have enough information to make an informed decision before [...]

They call me all the time! “We have a product for you to market. This mineral is proven to enhance weight loss.”  “...just right for your business—it is a meal replacement and will help your weight loss clients succeed.” Often perspective clients come for a consultation, and they tell me about gimmicks and promotions they have [...]

Can’t We Be Healthier?

2017-01-12T12:26:13+00:00

I found a new study published by the Mayo Clinic to be quite frightening.  As a health professional, I see many people on a daily basis who suffer from a variety of health issues.  But this study revealed just how widespread the problems are and how much work needs to be done in all areas [...]

“I thought that if I eat blueberries every day…….”. “Someone told me that if I eat only twice a day, I will surely lose weight”. “I heard chocolate is good for you so I started eating 70% dark chocolate, a whole bar a day to help my heart health”. “I started grazing instead of eating [...]

Too Much, Too Fast

A few years ago, a father brought his teenage son into my office for a conversation.  Yehuda was in Yeshiva out of town and he was class 3 obese.  At age 16, his parents were rightfully concerned about his well-being.  If at this age he was this heavy, with a 40+ BMI, what was going [...]

The Hidden Tricks to Lose Weight

2017-01-12T11:43:46+00:00

I hope the title of his article doesn’t have you thinking that I have found some great shortcut to weight loss.  There isn’t one.  We still don’t have a proven and safe medication, nor do we even have a surgical procedure that we are absolutely sure is safe or even effective in the long-term.  As [...]

So, which is it?

As both a wellness coach and personal trainer, one thing I am NOT trying to do is help people achieve perfection in any particular area.  What I am trying to do, is help people make improvements in their lifestyle habits in order to bring about a healthier quality of life.
