Another Pesach is upon us (Part 1)

March 12, 2018, by

Pesach is upon us… by now you have it all down to a good routine–which rooms get cleaned first, who is in charge of what, and when to kasher the kitchen.  There is the grocery shopping, meat and poultry shopping, and close to Yom Tov, the fresh produce. How many guests are coming to the

Surgery – Yes or No?

March 8, 2018, by

Joseph’s knee hurts, badly.  He can’t really get around pain free, let alone do his daily morning power walk.  He takes some non-prescription painkiller.  For a few hours, there is some relief although a dull ache is always there.  How long can he keep taking these pills?  They begin to bother his stomach by the

Stand Straight: It Pays

February 28, 2018, by

Posture!  We’ve all heard people (our parents and teachers) telling us to sit up and not to slouch.  How important is good posture?  It’s very important.  Poor posture isn’t just something that might be unsightly, it has many health and medical ramifications.  We’ve all been caught slouching, hunching over our computer, or just not sitting/standing

You set your goal.  You decided you needed to lose 12 kilo.  And you set out to do it.  You were given all the tools to get there; a good food plan, exercise and your determination to succeed.  Week after week you got mostly good results.  It was only when there was extremely cold winter

Why are You Overeating?

February 8, 2018, by

As every life coach or wellness coach knows, the one question you don’t ask your client is “why?”.  We are usually dealing with the how, when, what, and when.  Although I wouldn’t ask my clients “why” they are doing anything, I certainly try to get them to understand why they are undertaking bad habits or

Disordered Eating or Eating Disordered?

January 24, 2018, by

Here’s how things used to be, at least when I was growing up. You woke up in the morning and you ate breakfast before going to school, or when older, ate breakfast after davening. Then you ate lunch in school or during vacation at home and in the evening, there was supper and usually, everyone

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

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
