  • You Should Be Skinny

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 4, 2011 | 2:30 pm

    This is not my advice on how you should get skinny.  I’m simply telling you, you should be skinny.  Everyone has to figure out what sort of diet and exercise plan and tricks and tips works for them.  Since I retired from dancing professionally, my weight has been pretty steady –...

  • The Diet Cycle — One Woman’s Journey to Get Off the Bike for Good

    April 2, 2009 | 1:18 pm

    One day, almost three years after the birth of my youngest child, I looked in the mirror. I hated what I saw. I had been carrying around “baby weight” through four births, at least that’s what I kept telling myself.  It seemed, though, that I was suddenly able to see clearly...

  • Trigger foods can play key role in causing migraines

    September 24, 2008 | 11:33 pm

    Rhonda Cadle loves pepperoni, but she has given it up for good.

    Pamela Yeager used to savor the veal paprikash served at a local restaurant but now avoids it at all costs.

    These women gave up foods they loved not because of calories, cholesterol or fat. Instead, they gave up foods...

  • Delivery chef unable to savor his culinary success

    By Adam Wills

    September 3, 2008 | 11:14 pm

    Crab cakes drizzled with zesty chipotle lime sauce and peppercorn brandy glazed pork loin are a few of the entrées The Fresh Diet delivers to clients. But its Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, who developed most of the dishes offered on the meal-delivery program's menu, has never...

  • Ancient sources yield health and diet wisdom

    July 23, 2008 | 3:20 am

    Many diet books promise a better, thinner you in a ridiculously short amount of time, but conventional wisdom holds that many diets stop working by about 6 p.m.

    Two recent books -- "The Life-Transforming Diet" (Feldheim, 2007) and "The Jerusalem Diet" (Gefen, 2007) -- offer...

  • Jewish women change their destinies by testing for genetic mutation

    By Julie G Fax

    March 27, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Erika Taylor didn't want to know whether she had the breast cancer gene.

    "My thinking was I would never get a prophylactic mastectomy," Taylor, 44, said of the idea of removing her breasts as a preventive measure. "I just thought it was horrible thing to do to myself, and if I...

  • Women’s Heart Health 101

    By Jenny Stamos

    February 14, 2008 | 5:00 pm

    Surprise, cholesterol isn't all bad. Your body uses it to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that aid digestion. But that doesn't mean you should make a run for the turkey bacon. That's because your body makes all the cholesterol it needs on its own, without any extra-fatty...
  • Veggie lovers could fare better in cancer fight

    By Melissa Knopper

    January 17, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    If you're a middle-aged man (or already past it) here's what should be on your menu today: tomato sauce, watermelon, stir-fried tofu and veggies, selenium and vitamin E. Wash it all down with a swig of green tea or pomegranate juice and you may be able to ward off prostate cancer....
  • Don’t let foodies eat up all the fun

    By Tom Teicholz

    March 15, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    This time of year finds me on the treadmill in the mornings, futzing around the gym, taking walks around the neighborhood, eating lots of grilled chicken salads. I'm in training -- not for the recent Los Angeles Marathon, but for the marathon weekend in May when my wife and I travel...
  • Semper Fiber

    By Judy Gruen

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I am a big believer in New Year's resolutions, especially of the weight-loss variety. I've even been known to renew my vows on a weekly basis. Yet, I have learned that any drastic promises, such as, "I will never eat another bowl of Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream...
  • Sonoma Plan Adds   Flavor to Dull Diets

    By Soriya Daniels

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Dr. Connie Guttersen is on a mission to make America smaller. Well, perhaps not geographically, but at least to shrink the size of the average American.

    Scientific studies have proven that weight-loss diets that are based on moderate amounts of the healthiest types of fats, such as...

  • I Love You, Carnivore

    By Rabbi Jonathan Klein

    March 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    This column is in response to last week's Torah Portion by Rabbi Zoë Klein, who confessed her secret enjoyment of meat, despite her family's predominantly vegetarian diet.

    To: My Not-So-Flesh-Eating Wife

    From: Her Closeted Carnivorous/Publicly Vegetarian Husband

    Worry not, my dear,...

  • Scales of Injustice

    By Abby Ellin

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I was 10 the first time I stepped on a scale. It was the summer of 1978, and I was visiting my grandmother in Florida.

    Every day, grandma and I went for our daily two-mile walk, past the golf course, past Publix, the supermarket where the old people bought prune juice and cod liver...

  • Fit L.A. - The Birthday Party Crasher: Dr. Atkins

    By Judy Gruen

    January 19, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Over the past few months, I have relished the apparent collapse of the low-carb industry. Low-carb specialty stores and magazines arrived with much fanfare but soon crumbled like a tired soufflé.

    Good riddance to them, I thought -- especially the magazine that tried to bilk me...

  • Post-Bar Mitzvah Stress Disorder

    By Judy Gruen

    January 12, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Our youngest son has just celebrated his bar mitzvah, and I am recovering from a case of Post-Bar Mitzvah Stress Disorder. This is a seriously underreported malady, yet shockingly, the government has yet to allocate a single dollar to research. If this doesn't change soon, I'm going...

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 12, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Alisa, a 30-year-old Jewish divorcee, consumed 200 calories most days. But every few weeks, she repeatedly binged on gargantuan amounts of junk food, then purged by vomiting, swallowing diuretics and Ipecac. After several days, the mother of two usually landed in the hospital.

  • Wake Up and Smell the Fish

    By David Finnigan

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    For UCLA geography professor Jared Diamond, the fall of a great civilization can come down to fish.

    "Fish prices have tripled; fish form a significant part of our diet," Diamond told The Journal. "At the rate we're going, most of the world's major fisheries will be gone within a...

  • Senior Moments - Great-Grand Marshal

    By Ellie Kahn

    November 24, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    As I walked through the grounds at the Jewish Home for the Aging (JHA), I noticed a man in a wheelchair reading a magazine. It was called "Life Extension."

    I had to laugh. Someone must have strategically placed this magazine, like a prop, for the interview I was about to conduct....

  • Mirror, Mirror

    By Amy Klein

    November 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    I think I have body dysmorphia: an unnatural and distorted view of my physique, otherwise known as false body image.

    See, I'm the only woman I know who has ever expressed a bit of shock at the Dove advertisements.

    They've been running for the last few months on billboards, on...

  • Walk a Mile With My Pedometer

    By Judy Gruen

    June 30, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    It does not augur well when you must suck in your gut and hold your breath as if you are having multiple X-rays taken simply to zip up your skirt.

    When this happened to me, I knew I had two choices: give up my current wardrobe or lose the excess baggage. Since I recently wrote a...

  • Let Your Tasteless Chicken Go

    By Lisa J. Solomon

    April 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    For many years, my daughter and I were lucky to be invited out for Passover. Besides joining a big group of people, and sampling a variety of Passover foods, I relished the added benefit of not having to plan, shop and cook for the daunting seder (first and second night) meals....
  • Got Baby Weight? Try Pilates

    By Maria Leone

    February 24, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Too many "When are you due?" comments that came weeks after I gave birth to my second child were all the motivation I needed to reclaim my body. I had gained 60 pounds with my first child, but I bounced back into shape with little effort. Now I was five years older, recovering from...

  • You Are What You Eat

    By Howard Nemetz

    January 6, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a vegetarian. I know there was a big controversy brewing over kosher meat, but I'm not sure what the Jewish position

    on vegetarianism is. I suppose as long as the vegetables are pulled from the ground in a quick and humane manner, no one can object too strenuously to it. I...

  • Cohen Jockeys for Position in Racing

    By Steve Schuelein

    October 14, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    What's a nice Jewish boy doing in a profession where he can't eat? If his name is David Cohen, he is making the mealtime sacrifice to break into the ultra-competitive Southern California jockey colony at Hollywood Park.

    Although his diet could place him at the same table as Gandhi...

  • A Spiritual Path   to Weight Loss

    By Julie G Fax

    September 23, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    With rainbows of fabric swishing around her 5-foot-11 frame, rings on every finger and bracelets hugging the length of her wrists, Reb Mimi Feigelson cuts an impressive presence -- an aura in no way diminished by the fact that she is 80 pounds lighter than she was two years ago.

    As...

  • A Sweet Dream Come True

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    February 19, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    The tip jar at CremaLita in Santa Monica reads, "Make Me Fat," which is the opposite of why patrons frequent this new, kosher fat-free ice cream chain in Los Angeles.

    The trendy, Manhattan-based company dishes out more than 60 flavors -- including peppermint and espresso --...

  • Doctor Helps Kids Deal With Diabetes

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Ask just about any of Dr. Francine Kaufman's pediatric patients about her and the superlatives will start to fly.

    "Fran is one of the busiest people I know ... yet she's still able to find time for me and make me feel like the only child in the hospital," said 15-year-old Katie...

  • The Dayenu Diet

    By Carin Davis

    April 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Do these jeans make me look fat?"

    Smart men don't answer that question. Smart women don't ask it. But all women think it. Especially single women who are trying to bag a boy. After all, a man's first impression is based on a woman's looks. And single men are looking at more than...

  • A Forkful of Trouble

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Turkey, potatoes and gravy, candied yams -- all the foods you love to pile on your plate come Thanksgiving. But you might want to check your blood sugar before you take another helping of mashed potatoes, because if you are one of the many American Jews at risk for diabetes, that...
