It’s been inspirational to read Maimonides’ medical and philosophical works and see how similar his caveats are to what you’d read in the New England Journal of Medicine.

If you believe that the relationship between mind, body and physical health is a modern discovery, think again. Here are 14 of my favorite bits of wisdom from Maimonides who wrote about all the relevant nutritional, medical and philosophical teachings of his times and previous centuries:

  1. You should eat only when you are hungry and drink only when you are thirsty.
  2. Overeating is like poison to the body and can lead to illness.
