Enjoy a preview of my new book Secrets of a Jewish Mother, this one is all about food, portion sizes, and eating the best for your body.

You need to eat breakfast to start the engine and eat five small meals a day for fuel. If you starve your body, your body will literally hold on to your fat in order to reserve fuel. Tell the waiter to wrap up half the meal before serving it. Now you have dinner for two nights. For me, eating offers diminishing returns. Aren’t the first few bites of something decadent the most satisfying? I have been “killing” food for a long time, as i talked about in an episode of the show when I killed some French fries by pouring water on them.
