The Real Battle is Home

The Real Battle is Home- Wellness

The real battle is home.

When it comes to looking your best, being healthy and in shape, many people are concerned with going to the gym, not buying junk food when they are outside, not falling into peer pressure…
All this is great, but let’s face the fact, the real battle is at home, where you spend the majority of your life.

If you get a personal trainer, a nutritionist, a life coach, that’s amazing but this home battle can only be won by you and only you. So ultimately, you have to become your own personal trainer, mental coach, and nutritionist. Getting help from people in your environment, through books or videos online is wonderful, but you have to integrate that knowledge and make it yours, make it flourish within.

If this is not done, then you will be living a double life, which is what billions of people are doing. Outside, around some people, they talk about health, fitness, nutrition, but at home, when they are alone, by themselves, the other side comes out, ordering unhealthy food left and right, freezer packed with ice cream, pizza, or just plain overeating every day.

The real fight is home. If you truly want to lose weight, get in shape, and make health your flavor, you have to start right at home. Before thinking about joining a gym, what exercises to follow, what’s the best supplement, ask yourself this. What game plan are you going to follow to make sure, when you are home, you are eating healthy, clean, and yummy food 90% of the time. From Monday to Saturday.

Answering this, planning, and executing it is the real game-changer, and no one can help you make it happen for you.

There is a new book out talking about the amount of time we spend indoors in our entire life, it’s 90%. So If you reach 70 years old, you would have spent 63 years of your life indoors, so think about the amount of time you will spend home. Of those 63 years indoors, you might spend a good 40 years at home.

Reflect on this and it’s clear that what you do at home is immensely more important toward your health than going to the gym. That’s why I tell people that they can lose all the weight they want without ever stepping a foot in the gym. To make them aware that the real battle is at home.

If you are looking to gain a lot of muscle, it will be easier to have a gym membership, but to lose weight, be toned and healthy, you can do it at home. Because being in a normal weight for your height, healthy body mass index, having a flat stomach, this is mostly achieved by how you eat. Can you stay within the right amount of calories to trigger fat loss, eat the right food, and maintain a healthy nutrition after you reach your target weight goal?

These are questions that your fitness plan, trainer, coach, motivational videos and insta fitness model can’t answer.

That’s why my effort, with the video programs and all these vlogs, is to change the narrative of how we can be fit, healthy and vibrant, change the paradigm because weight loss or building muscle is mostly about behavior, which is the domain of the mind, psychology is 99% of it.

You don’t need to be a brain scientist to see the connection between eating well at home, winning this battle, and mental control, mindstate management.

When you are outside, around some people who eat healthy and stay fit all the time, it’s easier to speak about looking to get in shape, or eating healthy. But when you are by yourself, that’s when your true self shines, your habits are indicative of your subconscious self, which makes 90% of your personality.

If you really want to see who someone is, one way is by their actions, but some people can fake it, but you will learn a ton by seeing their dream. Because that’s where their truth shines, you can see what drives them most, their fear and desires.

Another simple way is just to peek into their life at home, when they are alone.

One of the first things I do with new clients is finding out what kind of food they have at home. And in many cases, we end up throwing a lot of food away. A lot of junk food. Many times, throwing a lot of junk food away, I thought, maybe I should keep this food and donate it, then I realize, if I’m not going to eat it, and I know it’s not healthy, why would I give that to someone else.

That’s another discussion, but my point is that you first want to audit your house. If you are looking to change your lifestyle for the better and you find it difficult, start by removing all junk food in your house.

Pasta, rice, sugars, from brown sugar to white or honey, everything got to go. Crackers, cookies, snacks, juices, they gotta go. Again, if you want to live a double life, no need to do this, but if you want to be all in, which is the only way to live a healthy lifestyle, remove all the junk food from your vicinity. Make your home a rehab center. People go to rehab then come back to the same environment and start back again.

So home is where you are going to spend the majority of your life, make that your church of health.

Next is making sure you don’t buy and bring unhealthy food at home, because many times, you might find yourself tired at home, angry or anxious, where your mojo is low. These moments are perfect to jump on junk food and binge eat. You can prevent this by not buying unhealthy food and bringing it home.

The act of removing junk and unhealthy food you have at home is a testament to your commitment to be and stat fit, vibrant. If you want to make your house, your crib, a church of health, a sanctuary of wellness, you have to purify it.

If I’m coming to your house to help you get back in shape and eat healthy, if you refuse to throw your junk food away, what does it says about you, and your commitment? you are not all in. So don’t play game with your mind, that will create multiple personalities and make you more fragmented within. Whatever decision you make in life, be total with it.

The next step to win this home battle is to make sure you have plenty of healthy food around you. Snacks like nuts or unsweetened yogurt, you can use Splenda or natural stevia to sweeten your yogurts. Or cheese sticks is another good snack option or some baby carrots.

Even more important is learning some easy and healthy yummy food to cook. Follow Instagram accounts of healthy recipes, from paleo to keto and other low carbs diets.

If your objective is to lose weight, having healthy food at home is good, learning to cook healthy and delicious food is great but you must know how much calories you should stick to in order to create a calorie deficit. Then you can track it with myfitness pal.

In my video program to lose weight forever, I help you find out all the information needed to build a blueprint within the first 3 videos. So within an hour, you have a complete blueprint to start. Then I support you with another 15 hours of video to help you increase your wellness IQ about fitness and nutrition science and boost up your mental control, the missing link.

So again, the real battle, not fight, because you shouldn’t fight with yourself, but the real battle is at home.
If you are losing the battle at home, eating unhealthy when you are alone, going to the gym, or looking for the best nutrition plan is not going to help. Start home first, and deep down, home means your mind, start from your center.

It’s up to you, thank you.

Are you Dying Well?

Are you Dying Well? Wellness-Nutrition

Are you Dying well?

Hello, this video is about Dying, not just big Death, but the process of dying which actually begins the moment we enter this world. From the moment we come in, we start dying. Now, it’s up to each of us to manage how this process will unfold. You have some degrees of freedom to manage the condition of your lifeboat at this end of this trip. By your lifestyle and actions you take every day.

This process can go from good to great or from bad to well, making your life a complete hell. The goal of this video is to help increase your awareness in regard to how your pilot your spacecraft. You have two options.

One is having a trip that is full of turbulence from the moment you take off, your trip is constantly peppered with some problems, thunderstorms, tornados, thick clouds, endless fog. Every now and then something is bothering you in life. A few moments or days ago you were happy, satisfied, then boom, anger, frustration comes back, because those poisonous seeds are within you, ready to sprout at any moment. Maybe because you are unwilling to uproot them, or you think this is who you are or just don’t know-how. So under the right external conditions aka triggers, poisonous emotions come out of you.

Worse, for some of us, we can see that down the line, landing our spacecraft will be rough, because we didn’t do proper maintenance, overweight, unhealthy, hypertension, cancer…some fear so much the landing, facing death, that they are basically closing their eyes to all these problems they could actually fix. This is what Ernest Becker called the denial of death.

A long time ago a wise man told me, every pain and challenge you encounter, face it, and grow from it, if not, it will grow in your shadow and come back to haunt you. Death is one of those monsters we don’t want to think about but it’s affecting how we live every day.

The other choice is having a flight mostly free of turbulence, this requires reaching cruising altitude, it’s airplane lingo that means reaching 40 thousand feet in the air, where there is very little turbulence, you are coasting. This is what peak wellness is all about, the tagline of my website, when you take care of your fitness, nutrition, all the way to improving your mental state…you are centered, and being centered makes you balanced, and balances you are at peace within. You move through life like a river, flowing…hence bruce lee saying, be like water.

But this requires effort and time allocation, sure, more money will help you have a better trip, you can buy more wine and food in your spacecraft, you can buy more movies, more gadgets, browse the internet or social media, or take sleeping pills, smoke weed, but unless you reach cruising altitude…without health, fitness, and peace of mind, how will you enjoy all these things you are purchasing? Can you enjoy a trip in a plane under constant turbulence, think about this.

Boredom is also ready to mess this road trip, so people are constantly running, depression is on the rise, people are anxious, yet America has never been that wealthy.

Are you dying well, is the title of this video, let’s get into it.

Throughout modern history, one of the key insights from scientists and philosophers studying the impact of death on human psychology is that we are unconsciously hunted by the fact that life is finite. And this fact of life influences how we behave every day, our goals and priorities.

Your attitude toward death is an important variable of how you live your life and what meaning you attribute to this life.

Each one of us constructs a sense of self from around four years old, and every time this ego is bruised, it’s a problem. When we get hurt emotionally, feel depressed, or anxious, we look for quick solutions to make us feel good again. Going back to the plane analogy, it’s like feeling turbulence and choosing to buy more food, or watch some movies, or go out and get distracted. In the short term, this might help, but you have to address the root issues, turbulences are negative emotions within us, or fear of death, or boredom, or lack of meaning and satisfaction in our lives.

Obesity, food addiction, alcohol addiction, drug addiction, a lot of people facing those issues were affected by traumatic events in their lives, went or are going through stressful situations, those addictive things were a way to self medicate for many, or move forward.

Now think of the reverse, how would you live the rest of your life if you were fearless of death..shame, guilt, anxiety, depression, if you had no fear of death at all, these emotions would be gone from your mind forever…How much energy will that unleash in you, to make this long flight of life meaningful, joyful?

Being fearless when it comes to death is basically mental, an emotional realization. You first have to become aware of the fact that your life will end one day. Of course, we are all aware of that but I’m talking about reflecting on this, visualizing your last day, even breath, so you embody this reality.

But you don’t even need to become fearless of death for that to have a positive impact on your life, a deep understanding of the process of death, aging and illness will help you greatly.

Ancient stoics in Rome carried a coin with them engraved with the phrase memento morris, which means, remember that you are going to die. They understood that being hyper-aware of death has many therapeutic effects and can help you get a different perspective on your life, one that might be a catalyst for improving your lifestyle.

We all know people, directly or indirectly who after facing situations where they almost died, completely changed their outlook on life for the better. They changed career paths or started living differently. Because they realized that there is no time to waste, every single minute counts, you can make this flight beautiful or constantly be peppered with bad weather, turbulences, and tornados.

A cornerstone of Buddhism philosophy is the insight that life is change. Everything is constantly changing, things arise and die…it’s the rhythm of life. Understanding this, we become less attached to things in life, we can let go of things easily, we can enjoy things without having a strong grip on them.

It’s a tremendous emotional skill because afflictive emotions like anger, pain, dissatisfaction cannot last in us if we are not holding on to them, we know they all come and go, they arise and cease. It’s the rhythm of life.

Applied to nutrition and fitness, understanding the principle of birth and death, that things come and go constantly, will help you muster the will to improve your fitness and nutrition because no matter how unhealthy you might be today, overweight, hurt or obese, it’s not a fixed state, it’s not a prison, because of the principle of change, you can use that to your advantage.

The short pain of training, especially in the beginning month when your body is adapting, or doing your cardio every day to lose fat goes away and you start to take advantage of better fitness, nutrition, and health.

Buddhism has this weird insight that Old people, A dying person and a sick person are messengers from the universe, to remind us how precious being healthy, physically and mentally is, because of what comes with sickness, with the process of aging and with dying.

Take a few moments in your day and Reflect on being sick, we are quick to forget being sick once our health comes back:

Being sick, your body is basically decaying very fast, cells, tissues, bones, liquids, everything is degrading rapidly…also, we lose our zest for life, you can’t enjoy your favorite food, movies, video games, and other hobbies you love.
You also lose your vitality, physically and mentally, it’s a small depression and we feel so weak. Then we have to take medicine, which has side effects, some of us have to get surgeries or cancer therapies.

Then reflect on old age, being young we love to focus on the present, but overseeing older people, which we will become one day, there is a lot we can learn to improve our lives now and for the future:

The body also degrades as we age, slower than when we are sick, and even slower if we are in good physical condition. Our beauty and youth also degrade, our senses, capacity to hear, taste, see, feel, each one of them can be affected drastically with aging.

Reflecting on these processes of dying and the flow of change can help you reassess your current lifestyle for the better, because you can make this long road trip full of joy and pain-free, and thus make the final landing the crescendo of your life, make it a beautiful symphony.

It’s up to you, thank you.

After Rehab

After Food Rehab, Then What?

After rehab, what’s next?

Hello, In this video, I will go over a gigantic problem people looking to lose weight, get fit, and stay vibrant have to face. I call it the after rehab relapse.

Some of us might know friends who went to rehab for different addictions, but most of us have seen it in movies or heard about celebrities going to rehab and how many, and how often people relapsed. But nutrition and fitness rehab is also a thing.

Millions of people would greatly benefit by changing sceneries, leave their environments and go somewhere more conducive to eating healthy, so they can get started and build some solid foundations to sustain a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives. This is what the show the biggest loser is about.

But nutrition rehab is very rare, so your rehab center ends up being your house, your home, where you gained weight, where you overeat, where the cookie monster calls home.

Every now and then you hear people saying they are doing a 30-day fitness or nutrition challenge, the summer is around or big event, so they muster the will to commit and go all out. This is a great step, but you need a strategy after rehab, what’s going to happen. Most people will never go to nutrition rehab, it doesn’t exist, so changing habits in their house is the only way toward a healthy lifestyle.

Before designing a strategy for after rehab, you have to first make your home a rehab center or better yet, a sanctuary of health. I recently made a video that deals with making your house your ally toward getting fit and staying vibrant, the video is called the real battle is home.

Now here, I want to focus on the after rehab portion, basically, after you reach your fitness goal. This alone is a huge milestone. Few people reach their target weight goals, many quit after the initial weeks, when the excitement fuel burns out and old eating habits creep back.

If you have trouble starting on this journey to lose weight and get fit, check the video program on my website, where I help you go from A to Z with everything you need to know and do, with a focus on the mental aspect, the psychology of making this lifestyle transition.

OK, so when you do reach your goal, then what. Here are some mistakes people make:
The first one I talked about already is just not having a plan of what to do after rehab.
Imagine a drug addict who goes to rehab and then comes back to the exact same environment where he became addicted, or someone coming out of prison, back in the same environment.

If they don’t drastically change that environment, we cannot be surprised if they relapse, it’s to be expected. The culture we grew up into, our friends, family and hobbies influence how we behave every day, especially when it comes to nutrition and fitness.

The second mistake people make is not having a detailed plan. One of the best pieces of advice I learned from a business advisor is that your business plan needs to be as detailed as possible. He said that generally, building a business will not exactly reflect your plan but a detailed business plan helps you think of the roadblocks or intricacies you haven’t thought of yet. It’s like preparing for war.

You don’t go to war with a half bake strategy, you want to spend time building a strong blueprint for your lifestyle post-rehab. The first time I meet people who are looking for help losing weight, getting fit, or gaining muscle, I always make them aware of the need to build a detailed blueprint for what they will do after.

And the issue is, many people stop looking for advice after they reach their initial fitness goal. If they don’t have a plan post-rehab, the vast majority end up relapsing into the old eating lifestyles. 95% is the relapse rate in nutrition and fitness. 95%

And then the third mistake people make after rehab is not executing the blueprint. If you make a blueprint of how you are going to behave upon your release from prison and then you don’t do it, what are the chances of you relapsing to your previous lifestyle? Pretty high. So execution is crucial here.

Now, let’s go over a broad strategy for your new lifestyle after rehab, after reaching your weight goal.

One is to write down your next goals. People tell me, they want to lose X amount of pounds, gain this amount of muscle, then what. Many don’t have answers after that. It’s very hard for people to reach a weight goal and just coast, maintain, we are either going up or down.

One easy goal is aiming to lose more weight or gain more muscle. So you can keep your target weight but get stronger, leaner. It’s up to you to find out how much stronger you want to get, so it will allow you to focus on getting healthier.

Let me give you some other goals to think about. When I reached my fitness goals of gaining 20 pounds of muscle, my next goal was increasing my overall endurance, I started doing more slow cardio at first to get a good aerobic base and then more high intensity, fast sprints to increase my stamina.

Another goal was starting yoga, this really expanded my wellness lifestyle, because I was getting into uncharted water, back to being a beginner, I had so much to learn. Another goal was starting meditation. So I went from being super skinny to muscular and fit, to doing yoga 2 to 3 times a week, then meditation, from 20 mins to 2 hours a day.

There are so many levels to climb with Yoga and meditation that I don’t need to find new goals, combined with basketball, which has been the center of my life since I was born, all these activities help me stay fit, healthy and improve my peak wellness, my mind.

You can choose to join bike classes or dance classes at your gym, or start a martial art as my cousin did back in Canda. He was getting bored just lifting weight and being fit so he started Brazilian jiu-jitsu and he loves it, because by joining a sport, you are primarily doing it for fun.

The fitness aspect is secondary, in the background. BJJ is very trendy today because of the UFC and that’s awesome. You can choose to start playing soccer, basketball, tennis, it’s really up to you. Or you can stick with YOga, to keep your body flexible and mobile as you age with the added benefit of improving your breathing and relaxing your mind. It’s something you can do at home.

The second element you can add to your strategy post-rehab is reshaping your environment for the better. Since your rebab toward eating healthy and getting fit is at home, you may have already made a lot of positive changes in your house. Stop buying junk food to store it at home and learn how to cook healthy food.

Learning healthy recipes is another important life skill that will help you tremendously. Follow some popular keto or low carb Instagram accounts and buy a few healthy cooking books on amazon, used versions are very cheap.

You don’t need to know 100 recipes but you can make it a challenge to practice a new dish every weekend for a year. Just to get out of your comfort zone and learn some new yummy, healthy recipes.

You can purchase some home fitness equipment, like resistance bands and one or two kettlebells, these two fitness tools don’t take a lot of space and are very useful in case you don’t feel like going to the gym, so you can still get a good workout. And also a yoga mat to exercise on or a pullup bar.

If you have a bigger house, you could spend more money if possible on building a small gym in your garage or backyard, like many of my friends on the west coast did. This is huge when it comes to reshaping your environment. A home gym will help other people in your environment get in better shape, your loved one, your children, you will be setting a great example.

I know some people who bought elliptical, stationary bikes or treadmill to exercise at home, this is another good idea but you need to keep yourself accountable and actually use these machines. Millions of fitness machines are collecting dust. But if you already went to the first stage where you reached your initial fitness goal, a fitness machine will help you keep this momentum going, make it a habit, a part of your daily routine.

The last advice on reshaping your environment is mapping out everything that could potentially make you relapse and coming up with a vaccine against them, whether it’s at home, on your way to work, at work, out with friends, you need to be proactive, prepared in advance.

The third weapon in your strategy for post fitness rehab is a commitment to improving your mental state, your emotional state. To me, this is the most important aspect of staying fit and healthy, it’s the missing link my program is based on.

Don’t think that because you reach your weight goal, the work is over… nope, there is much more work to do mentally, your old eating habits are still raw, they can erupt at any time, so you have to keep building stronger nutrition, fitness habits, fortify your mind, will power, discipline and become more aware of your mental state and relationship between your mood and behavior. More aware, more alert, more conscious.

The fourth element to include in your strategy post nutrition rehab is getting more help. Get closer to some of your friends who are into healthy lifestyles, or make new ones at your gyms or other fitness activities you are doing. We are social beings, and we create meaning by mirroring what people around us find meaningful. So if the people around you have health and fitness in their top priorities, this will bleed into your lifestyle as well.

And last but not least, increase your wellness IQ. You need to learn more about nutrition and fitness science, read on the effect of junk food, of healthy food on your body and mind. There are so many amazing books out there where you can learn about the immune system, hormones, gut health, mental health. You can also subscribe to a healthy podcast and make a commitment to listen to one or two health/fitness podcasts a week. Also, you can check some nutrition documentaries.

That’s it, we are now done with this video on developing a strategy post-rehab, to make sure you sustain a healthy lifestyle forever, where it becomes your second nature, your main ingredient.

It’s up to you. Thank you.
