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. The law enforcement community has been very adamant in using a phrase for the public; “If you see something, say something”.  Good advice.  And when it comes to our health, there are times

Revisiting Stress

November 8, 2016, by

Stress is a subject that I write about from time to time because I see all too often the damage it does to our health and wellbeing.  I see it from clients and I see it with friends.  And we happen to live in a society where the demands made upon us are unreasonable.  Whether

Looking Forward

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,

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

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

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

It was week 4 of Donny’s weight loss program. He started out great! He had made enough changes in his eating to already make a big difference.
