A person may not open an entrance opposite another entrance or a window opposite another window toward a courtyard belonging to partners, so as to ensure that the residents will enjoy a measure of privacy.” Mishnah, Babylonian Talmud, Masechta Bava Basra 60a.

Q: Hey Rabbi, it’s been challenging to break the bad habits of overeating from the chagim. I must’ve gained around 10-12 lbs. Now I need to get myself together and get rid of extra body fat. Besides not looking good, I feel more sluggish and have less energy for daily activities! Where do I start?

Alice Answers:

Eating a healthy diet is not about strict limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love eating. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, sleeping better, and boosting your mood.
