The Scale

January 16, 2018, by

Last week, Yitzchak walked into my office with a half-smile on his face. When I asked him how his week went with his eating and exercise, he gave me a very positive report.  I asked him if he thought his weight went down and he replied that based on the way his clothes feel, he’s

Preventing Dementia

January 3, 2018, by

This article is dedicated to the memory of my mother-in-law, Rasha Malca bas Moshe Dovid, who after more than a decade of Dementia, was Nifteres last month.   Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias pose serious health risks. Alzheimer’s is the fifth leading cause of death for Americans over 65.  In the next decades, the number

Dropping Out?

December 28, 2017, by

The vast majority of clients that come in to our 10 Week program complete the program and many move on to a continuing program.  One thing that they can all tell you is that they all gain a lot of knowledge in our program about healthy eating and exercise. Almost all of them can also

A NEAT idea

December 20, 2017, by

You have the best of intentions.  After years of sedentary living, you now realize that exercise is really an essential part of healthy living.  Besides that, your wife has been on your case to start getting in shape and reducing the size of your continually growing stomach.  And every single Motzei Shabbos, you reaffirm that

When Less is More

December 12, 2017, by

As Chanukah is here, my house is quiet.  All of my children are married and out of the house.    I quickly remembered times when we needed a large table for all of the menorahs, how candle-lighting took a long time as each child recited the brachos (blessings) and we sang Haneiros Hallalu and Maoz

Meet Some Inspiring People

December 7, 2017, by

One of the great benefits of my job is that I get to meet new people all the time.  Many of them come into my 10 Weeks to Health program, some come for personal training, and some come for lower back pain treatments, others for more limited programs.  I consider myself fortunate to be able

Don’t Be Hungry

November 29, 2017, by

The benefits of being a normal and healthy weight are countless.  Of course, going about weight loss the proper way, and not “dieting” is essential to keeping your weight off.  One of the downfalls of dieting is that many fad diets or calorie restrictive diets can leave a person feeling hungry.  Hunger and deprivation are

TechnoStress and your Health

November 22, 2017, by

When it comes to stress, we all understand the dangers involved to our health. Sometimes, there isn’t much to do about a situation that is causing stress. But what of behaviors or habits that I can change?  Those can be dealt with.  The technology we have today is wonderful in many respects but it can

The Elephant Made Me Do It

November 13, 2017, by

We all want to change our bad habits into good and productive behaviors.  Whether we are dealing with habits that affect our health, fitness, weight loss, or other poor habits, all of us want to reduce negatives and increase positives.  But if you’ve attempted to change long-ingrained habits before, you know how utterly impossible it

Turning It Around

November 8, 2017, by

It’s over and behind us.  It started with preparations for Rosh Hashanah and after three 3-day eating marathons and a festive Chol HaMoed, our Succahs may be down, but the scale is up.  Besides that, we’ve been very sedentary over the Yomim Tovim and the food we have eaten hasn’t been the healthiest.  Year after
