I am a Certified Optimum Health Coach for more than 7 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. They embrace this program for their patients as they help get them off medications as opposed to putting them on. 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 person keeping kosher 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.
