Acerca de


Get the keys to sustainable weight loss--reduce hunger, speed up metabolism, and transform your body into a fat-burning machine, with a science based approach.
Today there is a debate raging among nutritional authorities concerning the timing of breakfast. Some argue that in order to avoid sugar lows and uncontrollable hunger one should eat breakfast shortly after awakening. Others promote the extension of the nightly fast by delaying breakfast.
Maimonides & Metabolism explains in depth the physiological processes that are overlooked by many mainstream nutritional authorities, like the fact that the hormone cortisol is at its daily peak half an hour after waking up. Studies have shown that insulin resistance is higher shortly after waking as compared to a few hours later, and this is because cortisol is an antagonist of insulin - insulin is anabolic (directing the body to store energy), and cortisol is catabolic (directing the body to release and burn stored energy).
Eating a breakfast that includes carbohydrates too early will spike blood sugar levels too much, as the high levels of cortisol won't allow the insulin to lower the blood sugar to balanced levels. High blood sugar then leads to hyperinsulinemia (too much insulin). And simultaneous high levels of cortisol and insulin cause the body to increase the number of fat cells. Hyperinsulinemia also directs the body to store fat, and blocks the body from using stored fat for energy.
Maimonides & Metabolism delves into the timing of meals and exercise, habituating ourselves (gradually) to the most effective strategies of daily intermittent fasting that alleviates hunger and puts us into the natural fat burning mode.
Several chapters go into great detail on macronutrients to arm dieters and dietitians with the understanding needed for sustainable fat-loss.
It includes hundreds of cutting edge studies backing up the recommendations of Maimonides and the Talmud, as well as the best proven short-term and long-term dieting methods for fat-loss and improved health. It also includes 16 charts, 14 graphs/diagrams/pictures, 358 footnote references, a glossary and bibliography.
Health professionals are hailing it THE Health Bible, recommending this book to their colleagues and patients for its amazing array of insights and solutions.

About the Author:

Hi! I'm Yonason. After knee surgery at age 43, my waist line spiraled out of control, reaching 44 inches at its worst. Dieting and exercise wasn't helping me manage my weight even with a high level of self-discipline. Despite going to numerous licensed dietitians, the yo-yo effects never panned out to long-term sustainable fat loss. Realizing the need for a gym in my city (Beitar Illit, Israel) I opened one in 2013 (at age 49), obtaining personal trainer certification through Wingate Institute. Wingate sparked my interest in nutrition and physiology, leading me to research endocrinology in relation to diet, exercise, weight loss, and muscle development. Combining this research with the diet recommendations of Maimonides and the Talmud has helped hundreds of my clients locally. To cope with the growing demand for my diet advice and broaden my reach, I put together notes of my research and proven weight loss tools, and invested in several rounds of top-professional editing to create the best concise presentation I could on this topic. My self-published effort lacks the connections and marketing web of an established publisher, but word of mouth quickly sparked booming sales, and I thank you for it. I greatly appreciate your feedback on Amazon, and I will respond to any questions/requests you have in the review section here, or you can email me: or
