Is it possible to “cheat” while following the Sadkhin diet? It all depends on what you mean by cheating. The diet part of the Sadkhin complex has to be rigorously followed in order to achieve fast and lasting results. However, there may be situations when you simply cannot eat what you should based on your Sadkhin diet schedule. If you are attending a public event or a family party available meal options will most likely not be conducive to weight loss. Sure, sometimes it is possible to bring some food with you and eat it discretely. But it would be highly offensive to show up with a packed dinner at a wedding. So, what are you supposed to do?
Your absolute best option would be to eat some salad without any dressing (most definitely avoid vinegar and sugar-based dressings). You will be able to find salads on most menus. Cucumbers, kale, cabbage, broccoli and all kinds of leafy green vegetables are always your best bet. If you plan on having a main course choose fish (just try not to eat a piece larger than the palm of your hand). Other types of seafood are also OK. It is best if these dishes are grilled or steamed. Avoid breaded and fried items. If there are no good menu options and you are still feeling quite hungry look for a boiled egg at the salad bar. One hard boiled egg per week is fine even if you are not trying to find something suitable at a party.
Of course, you would like to know if you will be able to toast to the occasion. Well, perhaps if you opt for red dry wine. Best of all, mix it with water. Nobody will suspect that you are on a diet! Why does it have to be dry wine? It is the kind of wine in which there is no sugar residue. Sugar is something to be definitely avoided as much as possible even by those who are not on the Sadkhin diet. This also means that there should be no sweet dessert for you. Sorry!

Weight-loss doctor expanding practice
By BILL BROTHERTON
Dr. Shalva “Sol” Nash, who has owned and operated Brookline-based Weightloss Boston since 2002, has had great success using the holistic Sadkhin weight-loss method. Nash is expanding his practice to Lynn, opening an office at 20 Central Ave. in the building that houses Lynn Community Health Center.
Nash says his patients have achieved substantial weight loss without pills, heavy exercise or prepared foods. He adds the Sadkhin method facilitates naturopathic, drug-free and rapid weight loss using acupressure to curb the hunger and cravings typically associated with a restricted diet.
“I use an acupuncture technique, where small steel beads are placed behind the ear and held in place with surgical tape,” said Nash. He said there are 16 bioreactive pressure points in the body, and the stimulating beads are put in different spots to target specific organs, suppressing hunger and fighting fat deposits. Clients must be 18 or older, and an office visit to change the placement of the beads is required every 10 days.
Plus the patient must follow an initial dietary plan/cleansing program (fruits, vegetables, yogurt, milk) that promotes safe weight loss.
“One client suffered from diabetes and had (blood sugar levels) numbers of 230 when she first met with us,” said Nash. “She followed the program and, gradually, the dosage of her medication was reduced. Finally, her numbers were down to 70 and she took no more insulin.” She also lost a lot of weight.
Nash was a medical doctor in Russia, having graduated from First Moscow State Medical University, before coming to the United States in 1997. Dissuaded by the intensive, years-long process to get accreditation in this country, Nash, who lives in Lynn, first worked as a phlebotomist at Beth Israel Medical Center and then as an EKG technician at Cambridge Hospital before training with Dr. Grigory Sadkhin in New York. He said he is one of the few licensed Sadkhin practitioners in New England, the only one in Massachusetts. He says many of his clients live on the North Shore, and the Lynn office will eliminate their commute to Brookline.
