It’s Over—Now What?

October 29, 2019, by

Our sukkahs are down and the yamim tovim are now behind us.  Hopefully, we had a lot of simcha and quality time with our families.  Undoubtedly, we also took liberties with the amount and type of food we consumed.  And we did this at a time when we are less active than usual.  Obviously, that

Good News on the Exercise Front

August 27, 2019, by

Updated Guidelines—Everything Counts By now, I hope that most people have come to understand the great importance of being active and exercising. We’ve seen beyond a doubt what the sedentary lifestyle that we’ve created can do to our health. Modern medicine has come up with a lot of ways to keep us alive, but the

Some Numbers to Ponder

July 30, 2019, by

25, 10,000, 150, 80-20, 30, and 120. Are these my suggestions for this week’s lottery drawing? No, not at all. These are not random numbers either.

The Sweet has Turned Sour

May 16, 2019, by

“But what about diet soda? It has no calories. I can drink that right?” That is one of the most common questions I hear in my clinic. I understand the question. After all, it should “make sense,” but sometimes things just don’t turn out the way we think they should. This past month, even more

Investing Money the Right Way…for Your Health

April 30, 2019, by

When people express interest in our programs, I encourage them to come in for a free consultation to make sure we are on the same page in terms of what is involved in attaining their goals in health and weight loss.  A large percentage of people that come and speak to us sign up and

Practical Planning for Pesach

April 9, 2019, by

We’ve all had the wrong mindset—“After Pesach I will go on a diet.” And when Pesach is over we do exactly that and lose some weight until we get back to our pre-Pesach weight and maybe a little more.  Then it’s back to bad habits, weight gain and all of the associated health issues.  So
