A Healthier Way to Prep for Pesach

April 3, 2019, by

Even though we had one extra month this winter, Pesach is on the doorstep yet again.  It seems to have become a very stressful experience to prepare for what is supposed to be a holiday of great simcha.  How stressed do people get?  Starting two weeks before Purim several of my clients began asking about

While many clients come to me in order to lose weight, there are usually health issues involved that are more important to address than just losing the extra weight. There are the typical problems of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and muscular-skeletal problems including lower back pain. Some have auto-immune issues such as inflammatory

Combating Adolescent Obesity

It’s happening all too often.  The phone rings in my office and another mother is calling about her teenage daughter or son who is, at this early age, struggling with being overweight or obese.  Some of them already have high blood sugar, high cholesterol or even high blood pressure. This is, unfortunately, becoming commonplace. Adolescent

Yosef has a few medical issues and will be starting our 10 Week program soon. He came to see me in my office for a consultation. Aside from being overweight and sedentary, he has prediabetes and high blood pressure. Coupled with a poor family history, he decided that he should take action to reverse these

Simplifying Weight Loss
