Sagi (#5), I have the same problem! So many times I find myself mid-shwarma with greasy fingers, indigestion, and wondering where it all went. Self-control is the obvious solution – but easier said than done – so what I do is focus on the first bite. If I get more great, but at least make the first bite a good one. If you can delay that is even better, build up anticipation and get pumped for it. If nothing else works, rub a little on your face so you can think about it later.

Let's go out for a shwarma!

Tzvi I confess. One of my biggest weaknesses in life is shwarma (which also happens to be my favorite rosh chodesh feast). It's simply my favorite food and thus becomes an almost impossible task for me to eat it slowly as you described in the video. Perhaps we could go out for a shwarma together sometime and you can offer me some personal guidance. BTW - I have serveral friends that are experiencing similar shwarma stipulations. Please help!!!

I always enjoy what Tzvi has to say. His energy is empowering.

I love shwarma. But even more, I love hearing Tzvi talk about shwarma.

Tzvi, you are a trip!!! :)

I liked this video...:) You're on the money about the meaning in this video! I'm going to try practicing what you preach where my job is concerned. I need to find one that brings meaning to my life and makes me enjoy what I do, or figure out how I can bring something better of me to the job. Thanks Tzvi, for getting the message across!!!
