    Sefer Charedim, chapter 26, paragraph 29,
    page 120 of menukad edition:

    “The Creator commanded that we not
    imitate the ways of idol worshippers…

    the ways of idol worshippers include:
    eating and drinking excessively…”

    NOTE: The original source of this quote is
    Rabbi Eliezer ben Samuel of Metz, a Tosafist
    who died in year 1198 of the Common Era.


    This is a hoodwink
    He winks in his wink hood
    Without a good wink hood
    A hoodwink can’t wink hood

    How much wood
    could a Woodchuck chuck
    if a Woodchuck
    could chuck wood

    I do not find SQUARE_ROOT’s intention to be self-evident.
    I also do not understand the relevance of the first response.

    Reb Eliezer

    The Chasam Sofer interprets the pasuk in Devarim (12,20) כי ירחיב וכו’ ואמרת אוכלה בשר,when Hashem will extend your borders as He promised and ‘you will say’ I want to eat meat. Why do you have to say? The Torah wants one to be able to control oneself by saying one wants to eat meat before eating as if one does not do that, will turn into a glutton and eat without control. This happens to be a good advice for dieting.

    Reb Eliezer

    One will go after one’s desires. The Ramban says on קדשים תהיו says קדוש עצמך במותר לך sanctify yourself from the permitted.


    Old MacDonald had a farm
    Ee i ee i o
    And on his farm he had some cows
    Ee i ee i oh
    With a moo-moo here
    And a moo-moo there
    Here a moo, there a moo
    Everywhere a moo-moo
    Old MacDonald had a farm
