Rabbi Ishayek combines the wisdom of ancient scholars ... and other principles of Jewish dietary law together with the most recent scientific research and evidence-based medicine. Rabbi Ishayek possesses unique wisdom and is a keen observer of human behavior. His understanding, knowledge, and wisdom are all evident in this book. As a physician, I enjoyed reading the book, and I myself follow what Rabbi Ishayek preaches. I recommend this book to my family and friends, as well as to my patients. I believe that any person who follows the principles described herein concerning eating, drinking water and general behavior will live a longer, healthier and better life. --Jacob Shani, M.D., FACP, FACC, FSCAI, Professor of Medicine, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine
About the Author
Rabbi Yechezkel Ishayek is well known throughout the Jewish religious world, as he was the right-hand man of Rav Elazar Menachem Mann Shach, zt l for many years. Rabbi Ishayek grew up in Bnei Brak, where he spent 20 years learning in the famed Ponevezh Yeshivah. Throughout the years, while serving as Rav Shach s caretaker, he educated himself extensively about medical issues. In 5760/2000 Rabbi Ishayek launched a campaign against cigarette smoking and called upon on Gedolei Yisrael to sign announcements ecrying smoking, and he publicized these announcements. He authored the book Chaim L lo Ishun (Life without Smoking), which has sold tens of thousands of copies and has made a huge impact.
In 5760/2003 he put together a small pamphlet on preventive medicine. Over the years, he has expanded that pamphlet, and it has now become this volume. Rabbi Ishayek sees it as his mission to educate others on proper health and is grateful to Hashem for giving him the gifts and opportunity to do so. As one reader wrote, Rabbi Ishayek s desire to help people cries out from the pages of the book.

i went through a pregnancy following the books guidlines. i used to suffer terribly from heartburn and leg cramps during pregnancy and this time i didnt .I also gained the least weight and my baby weighed more than all my other children did at birth. i fit into my clothing right after birth. i was never able to lose weight while nursing. now my baby is 9 months old and still strictly nursing and im thin and feel healthy strong and energetic!
im following this diet now for 18 months and im not looking to get off it! it became my way of life.
i know a number of ppl that are following this books guidlines and had amazing results heahltwise and with weight loss.
Update: approaching 2nd anniversary of following the diet. I feel happier. My kids are happier and calmer. my baby is now 13 months old and He has never had a diaper rush since birth. His blood counts are amazing bh! Pediatrician couldn't believe he's not on baby formula!
and she lost weight
and she told her friends and family about it and they all like it
i don't think that everything he wrote is from a Torah view most of it is
but its a good book
In one sentence: How to eat in the way that best matches how Hashem designed our bodies to work.
Did I mention that I've also lost 15% of my body weight, BH, by practicing what I've read?
It's not about the weight, but excess weight is one of the clearest dangers to our overall health and longevity, and as the author explains, if we can't do mitzvos for our fully allotted time, we will be held responsible for that. This book can be your best defense!
Simple English, dotted with stories from the gedolim, and a bunch of humor, too.
Of course, the sources are all authentic: Rambam, Kitzur, and much more.
The best gift you can give your children: your health.
