Here is a list of the most common questions I get all the time.

N.L.P stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. Neuro Linguistic Programming is a  technique that allows us to change our thought process, which arises from our unconscious mind. Since our thought process is automatic, we are almost never aware of those thoughts and how we can control them.

The difference between N.L.P and meeting with a therapist is that N.L.P doesn’t focus on the root of the problem, rather the way our mind sees the problem.

For example, let’s pretend I have a fear of public places. If I met with a psychologist, they would focus on the root of the problem – Why do I have this fear? What happened in the past that caused this fear to develop?…On the other hand, if you met with me and we used the N.L.P technique, we would focus on how you see this fear in your mind and come up with ways to change your thought process about this fear.

In N.L.P, there are a variety of treatments that we could use to reprogram your thought process. Some of these treatments are known as “quick fix intervention” and they take on average 10 minutes to work. Examples include “switch pattern,” “like to dislike,” and “anchoring” and they can be used on problems or issues that we have carried around for our entire life (biting your nails, procrastination, etc.).

Absolutely not. If we only watch what we eat and lower our daily calorie intake we will still lose weight. But when we work out we are helping prevent a long list of over 40 chronic diseases such as diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc. In addition, working out helps us lose weight faster, increasing the rate in which our body burns fat and preventing us from gaining the weight we worked so hard to lose.

There are different ways to work out with weights. If your goal is to increase muscle mass, you will want to lift heavy weights (something that you can’t do more than 8 repetitions of). If your goal is to strengthen and tone your body, you will want to lift medium sized weights (something that you can do between 15-20 repetitions of).

The definition of motivation is “the reason (or reasons) one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.” Everyone has a different reason for why they do different things. Some people are motivated by the way they will look after they finish their journey or by how they will feel when they will go on the scale, look down, and see their goal weight. There are also people who are motivated because they are scared of developing a chronic disease that runs in the family or by the fact that they have a wedding or other event coming up and want to look their best.

So whether you are motivated by your final result, by fear or from a specific goal you have, I always recommend to remind yourself why you are on this journey in the first place and why you want to reach your goal so badly.

In addition, you can always remind yourself of what will happen if you don’t stay motivated and accomplish your goal and what types of things you will lose.

With the help of N.L.P, we will be able to create an anchor (an imaginary button in your body) where every time you press on it you will feel energetic, happy, and ready to take action.

We always want what we know we can’t have. If we don’t allow ourselves to eat our favorite foods or drink our favorite drinks, all we will want to do is eat and drink those things. I believe in what is called “moderate eating and drinking.” This means that i don’t forbid myself or my clients from eating, for example, pizza or pasta, but I make myself and them aware of the fact that it is a food that won’t help me get to my goal and therefore I will only eat it every once in a while and maybe half a portion rather than a full one.

Same thing applies to alcohol – I allow myself one glass of wine per week. By drinking only once a week, I don’t feel like I’m punishing myself or forbidding myself from drinking, rather I enjoy my allotted amount. I also feel good about myself because I didn’t quit and ruin my journey to changing my body and living a healthier lifestyle.

Our body is made up of 70% water. There is a direct correlation between the percentage of water in our bodies and the percentage of fat. If we have a lot of water in our bodies, the areas in our body where fat is stored can go ahead and get rid of the excess fat in a quicker and easier manner.

Also, the amount of water our body needs changes based on the size of our body, how active we are during the day, and if we workout. I usually recommend my clients to drink about 2 liters of water per day, with a goal of drinking 1 gallon of water per day which is 3.5 liters

The answer is simple – both of them. Aerobic training includes running, swimming, jump rope, “zumba,” etc. and burns calories mostly by breaking down glycogen (sugar). Anaerobic exercise, such as weight training and TRX, burn calories by mostly breaking down fat.

It depends on the intensity and duration, but usually short term aerobic exercise burns more calories. However, we need to remember two important facts:

  1. When doing anaerobic exercise the body mainly uses sugar as fuel (fat is a 9 molecule chain and therefore takes more time to break down).
  2. The more muscles I have, the higher my metabolism will be and the faster my body will be burning fat. This is why I always recommend to combine the two and get the benefit of both.

Changes that stay with us take time. Just like no one gains a substantial amount of weight overnight, no one loses a substantial amount of weight overnight. How quick you lose the weight depends on a lot things, such as your starting weight (the more overweight you are, the easier it will be to lose weight at first), your age (the younger you are the easier it is to lose weight), your metabolic rate, how active you are, and how often in the past you have tried to lose weight (it takes the body longer to get used to changes if it already had to get used to changes in the past).

Generally though, after one month of making a change in your lifestyle you will see a change in how you feel and in your clothes. After two months, people will start noticing the change and giving you compliments. And finally, after 3 months, the change will be obvious to everyone.
