    April 4, 2014 | 9:26 am

    My clients always a share with me that no matter how much they follow my guidelines to eating healthy and having a PCF combo with every meal (except for dinner) every once in-a while, they get sweet tooth. Totally fine. I encourage them to go ahead and follow that sweet tooth,...

  • Soul Cycle

    By Rabbi Lori Shapiro

    January 29, 2014 | 11:45 am

    White on White, the Soul Cycle storefront is the Apple Store of Fitness. It glows from within like the “Athletes” emerging from their classes. I call them “Athletes”, although I could have as easily called them “Rock Stars” or “Warriors” or “Leaders” because the walls as I enter...

    June 28, 2011 | 5:11 pm

    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...

  • Skateboard Creator Builds Business on Performance

    By Amy Klein

    August 31, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Don Tashman doesn't look like a skater boy, not with his scraggly, brown hair and three-day-old unshaven stubble that's yet to materialize into a beard.

    I enjoy walking if it's through a store during a sale or to show off a grandchild. But walking for the pure fun of it isn't fun for me. The last time I exercised was when Ed Sullivan introduced the Beatles, and I jumped up and down in the living room as they played.

    When I first moved to Los Angeles several months ago, I went to the gym every day. So, I discovered, does everyone else here.

    This came as a shock to me. As a displaced New Yorker among the angels, I could adjust to the un-NYC features of this sunny world: the shocked glares I'd...
