Welcome to our humble corner of the web. Our goal is to be a guide to my fellow Kosher Friends as they are on the path to Health, & healthy eating habits for life.   This site is to be resource for those who  want to feel energetic, get rid of the lethargic feelings & excess weight & to keep it off Permanently through developing Healthy Habits. Learn about how to not just survive, but thrive through the holidays,  & Jewish life-cycle events.

I am a Certified Optimum Health Coach for more than 6 years with  Take Shape For Life, in partnership with the McDonald Center for Obesity Prevention and Education at the Villanova University College of Nursing.  I have introduced this program to many people, & Physicians,  but for the most part, people have contacted me or approach us, asking me how they can achieve this type of healthy permanent weight loss. They see the numerous walking billboards of those who have lost weight & have kept it off.

When I first started this journey, many years ago, I felt like I was the only Kosher person who knew about this program, which might have been close to being true. Most of my shul, day school, neighboring shuls, friends & neighbors are now aware of it, but I thought it stopped there. More recently I have hooked up with others across the country who are Kosher Medifasters as well. Its very exciting to  me to exchange & share information with one another so we can all be Mechazek one  another on our path to health & “Ultra Health” as Dr A says.

Please feel free to peruse through the various pages I have set up, or are setting up. It is  there for you. Please feel free to comment as long as it is positive & helpful to others. I am open to suggestions as well.

I would like to thank the members of our Advisory Board who have graciously agreed to contribute their knowledge & expertise to our cause.
