thanks for the wishes and the words of support. I'm looking forward to the chag and to getting out and walking. Jerusalem is wonderful on the chagim - the quiet of the morning! shana tova.

I want to wish everyone a good year in every way.
Good luck on your food management over the chaggim. I believe that a little indulgence is ok. (It's chag after all). There are lots of healthy foods that we can eat.
I intend to keep my goal in mind. We'll see how it goes.

Great idea about getting all your calories in before the fast.

I am glad the fast ends earlier, but it is VERY HARD to get up in the morning. I go to beit knesset at 5 am (on Rosh Hashanah it was 6 am), and I feel an energy slump usually around 8-9 am. I'm a little uptight about this, as I am already tired this morning.

Another thing: I do find it hard at night when I get home after Kol Nidre. Another energy slump, I guess.

I take "Kali Tzom," which is this homeopathic pill(s). I don't know whether it's a placebo effect or not, but I find that I have been fasting easier because of it. You can get it in many pharmacies. You take two right before the fast with a glass or two of water. I think what it does is helps you retain your fluids.

I wish everyone an easy and meaningful fast.

Hi, everyone.

I have lots of yummy salads -- if anyone is interested, send me a Spark Mail with your home email and I'll send you a file with all/most of them. And I have some very nice meat/chicken/fish dishes which I can send people as well.

We can cook healthy and delicious and "mechubad" for the holidays. You don't need a lot of heavy sauces to bring out the wonderful flavor of meat and chicken. And there is no need to make your salads oil/mayo heavy either.

I also think that portion control is important, especially on a two-day holiday. Half a chicken breast is one serving, as is 1/2 cup of rice. Fill up on salads and just enjoy your family/guests. The big problem for me is the challah. I tell my husband to get it out of my reach.

On Rosh Hashanah night meals, the yehi ratzons are pretty healthy -- basically fish and freggies.

Don't forget exercise. You can (try to!) get in a session on erev R.H., then Thursday (Wed. is a fast day). Perhaps do both cardio and strength on both those days. That is what I am planning to do, and I hope I can meet those goals.

Regarding dessert, on night meals we have fruit and dark chocolate. It's less calories and you feel so much better than when you have cake.

A ketivah v'chatimah tovah to everyone.

We need a list of top salads to get through the endless chag/Shabbat/chag/Shabbat cycle. It all starts with washing for that first piece of challah (and even worse on Rosh Hashana, the best challah of the year - raisin challah). emoticon Good luck to everyone!
