In “Am I My Body’s Keeper?: Torah, Science, Diet and Fitness — for Life” he has written an instructional guide specifically for those readers who find it almost impossible to stay 100% healthy and fit with a modern lifestyle that includes long hours of sitting in an office chair, balancing a family, and accomplishing everything else on a daily to-do list. To deal with this conundrum, Dr. Kaufman shows how to extend our lives by living healthy and fit.

“Am I My Body’s Keeper” provides a simple guide to changing our lifestyles, from the sedentary one characterizing most of society to an active one emphasizing physical activity and healthy eating. The simple lifestyle changes advocated in the pages of “Am I My Body’s Keeper?” will give readers vim and vigor, health and fitness during those additional years of life they will be gaining. Based upon the timeless teachings of the Jewish sages as well as scientific research, “Am I My Body’s Keeper” is a ‘real world practical’ guide for good, healthy living for both men and women of any age. Thoroughly ‘user friendly’ in tone, content, organization and presentation, “Am I My Body’s Keeper?” is a life-changing, life-enhancing instructional guide and manual that is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library Health & Medicine collections and supplemental studies reading lists.
