Diabetes Myths, Realities and a Beef Skillet Supper

August 27, 2015, by

Listen to Linda’s Food Talk show on OURadio.org! So many of us are touched by diabetes – either through friends, families or ourselves. Wherever I go to promote my latest book Mix ‘n’ Match Meals in Minutes for People with Diabetes, I hear my father has diabetes or my sister or I’ve just become pre-diabetic.

Using Your Intuition

August 25, 2015, by

The definition of intuition is a phenomenon of the mind, describing the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason. Sometimes a coach or psychologist might have a “hunch” about something, not necessarily based on absolute fact. He or she will follow that intuition and many times, this allows the professional to

Foods that Fight Aging

July 29, 2015, by

I awoke this morning only to discover a new wrinkle, an unwelcome addition with far too many friends to count.  Aging is a natural phenomenon in a human lifecycle.  It cannot be prevented, and as we age our bodies will change and deteriorate.  Wrinkles and memory loss are just two of the many manifestations of

Boosting Your Immune System

With the news out that this winter that the flu vaccine only prevented flu in 18 percent of the inoculated population, it’s time to see what measures we can take to protect ourselves in a better way. Every winter, it seems that most people are going to get a cold or two and up to

From an Unlikely Source

December 24, 2014, by

Over the past week, I received two interesting emails. One from a longtime client of mine and the other from someone with whom I worked with to lose substantial weight. Both of these emails were “eye openers” and they didn’t come from the usual places one would find information about health and fitness news. Let’s

Recovery Time

September 23, 2014, by

A former chavrusa (study partner) of mine exercises a lot. But he complains to me that no matter what he does, not only isn’t he losing weight, he’s actually putting on. He would describe to me how he eats salad with supper and doesn’t really think he is overeating. Over and over again, for over

June 11, 2014, by

Exercise is good for just about everything. We already know that! But what about exercising for two? Yes, when you are pregnant, exercise is even more important. (Sorry men, but this one is for the wives). According to Farel Hruska who is the national fitness director of FIT4MOM, a woman’s body changes more in 9

In or Out!

May 20, 2014, by

One of the keys to success for people who start exercising is to find the proper mode of exercise for each individual so that they can enjoy what they are doing. I always encourage people to exercise outdoors. Although joining a gym or seeing a trainer in the gym is certainly beneficial, exercising outdoors just

Spring Into Action!

May 12, 2014, by

Winter is finally behind us, and what a winter it was. This past winter was record breaking everywhere. Jerusalem saw its heaviest snowfall in over 100 years. A double-barrel polar vortex brought daytime temperatures in parts of the United States to -30° F twice in December and January. Snows fell well into March on the
