Rugalach, banana liqueur, potato kugel, shnitzel, chulent, but no exercise? Are religious Jews suicidal? The observant lifestyle and the pot-belly don't have to go together…
So many people have dire problems with health and income – if they’d only change their eating habits, they’d see enormous miracles…
So folks don’t want to hear about real living: don’t want to hear – they want their beer and pizza and they don’t care about the consequences…
