November 28, 2016, by

Rochel, a 54 year old who was in my weight loss program a few years ago, was frustrated.  She was doing everything right but her weight not only wasn’t going down, it was going up.  Needless to say, I was also frustrated.  I sent her back to her doctor to have her thyroid function retested.

Moishe is a skype client from the mid-Atlantic United States.  He has become a great exerciser in our time together and is being very mindful in executing his food program.  He feels better than when he started, but the truth is, he really isn’t losing weight.  Yes, he has stopped gaining and because he is

Not something to Ignore

November 14, 2016, by

On a recent visit to the United States, all of the news outlets were discussing how to prevent the next terror attack,ח”ו.

Revisiting Stress

Looking Forward

October 31, 2016, by

Our Succahs are down and the Yomim Tovim are now long 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,

A Story for Shabbat Shuva

October 5, 2016, by

Prior to writing my columns, I always try to think through an idea before I put it to paper.  This column was to be no exception and I actually began mapping it out in my mind several weeks ago.  Just when you think you have it all down, something comes along that you can’t ignore

Jonathan is 50 years old.  He came into my office with a host of problems. His main problems were lack of energy and being overweight, and he also suffered from a low-level, mild depression.  He had read some information about the benefits of exercise, but the material he was reading wasn’t entirely accurate.  He then

Most likely to gain Weight

September 5, 2016, by

Much of my writing focuses on strategies to improve our health.  I also like to differentiate between what we can call either hearsay, or myths, and what science knows to be true.  When it comes to weight loss, the science is always evolving and we know more and more.  We also know what isn’t true

The Trouble with Kiddush

August 29, 2016, by

Have you been to a Kiddush lately on Shabbos?  Food as a celebration is nothing new to the Jewish People. After all, it is a Mitzvah to eat three meals on Shabbos, to include meat on Yom Tov, to make Kiddush on wine and to wash and eat Challah at a Seudas Mitzvah.  There is
