FAQ

Welcome to our Weight Loss FAQ page!

 

Here you'll find science-backed and clinically-proven answers to the most common dietary questions while ending common dietary misconceptions about how to lose weight for good, including how I lost 130lbs in 12 months eating my favorite food. We know that losing weight and keeping it off can be a daunting task so who better to learn from than by someone who walks that path every day?

 

It's not always easy to find up to date or unbiased and scientifically reliable information likley because most Doctors and Diet Companies have their own financial agenda which supersedes your interests. Even though weight loss science evolves, such as proving Intermittent Fasting is ineffective for weight loss versus three meals per day or how eating carbs does not impede weight loss, the financially-motivated medical community's opinion about carbs or eating breakfast never changes. Simply because there's no money to be made teaching people how to reverse obesity without the need to perpetually feed hospitals or Drug and Food Co. profits. Yet here we are in 2023 with Global Obesity rates at record highs and climbing and the only answer remains living a punitive and restrictive lifestyle and all because there isn't a Doctor or Dietician on the planet can measure or monitor your metabolic rate or your emotional state. All while trying to lose weight for life.

 

The Fat Remedy not only measures your metabolic rate but also maintains an even emotional state on an hourly basis with 100% accuracy and consistency. Removing food from the weight loss equation is how you cure a food addiction. That's why we've created this page of frequently asked questions to provide you with the information you need to plan and successfully undertake a weight loss campaign and to improve the quality of your life. 

Whether you're just starting out on your weight loss journey or you're looking for ways to overcome a weight loss plateau or a weight loss set-point, we've got you covered.

We understand that your weight loss journey is unique, so we've included a range of topics and tips to help you find the strategies that work best for you. From nutrition and exercise to mindset and motivation, our Weight Loss FAQ page has something for everyone.

So take a look around, and if you don't find what you're looking for, feel free to reach out to us. Our goal is to help you achieve sustainable, long-term weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.

Good Luck & Bon Appetit!

  • I have tried many diets and have always gained all the weight back. How is My FAT Remedy different?
    The vast majority of diets fail for two reasons. Firstly, they are simply too rigorous to follow for life all while experiencing metabolic slowdown. The more weight you have to lose equates to the less likley exclusionary diets work long-term. Secondly, exclusionary diets are socially punitive and emotionally restrictive and when combined with the fact that weight regain happens so quickly, emotionally disassociating yourself to continued weight loss becomes all but certain. We can regain a week's worth of lost weight in less than 60 minutes. The good news is that statistically speaking, your first step to permanent weight loss is not to diet at all. The vast majority of diets fail, or roughly 97% of them, because they focus on short term weight loss and the reading on your scale all while not teaching you how to evolve and live normally around the normal food you grew up eating. If normal eaters can enjoy pizza, pasta, fast food, white rice, dark meat and some alcohol and desserts, why can't you? Your problem isn't what you eat, as proven by billions of healthy Mediterranean people for thousands of years, your hurdle to health is portion control. The FAT Remedy is how you transition from a routine overeater to a healthy one in about 24HRS. No army would go into battle using untested weapons which is why you shouldn't begin a weight loss campaign by eating foods you don't enjoy or look forward to eating. That's why 97% of diets fail the dieter and not vice versa. https://slate.com/technology/2015/03/diets-do-not-work-the-thin-evidence-that-losing-weight-makes-you-healthier.html#:~:text=In%20reality%2C%2097%20percent%20of,and%20downright%20deceptive%20at%20worst.
  • My Doctor recommended I try Intermittent Fasting. Will 'skipping breakfast' or eating in an 8-hour window help me lose weight?
    Mathematically speaking, not even close. As every study has proven time and again, fasting or skipping breakfast will lead to muscle cannibalization and to metabolic slowdown and not to weight loss versus eating three meals per day ( see: TRE, time-restricted eating vs. CMT consistent meal timing). In turn forcing you to eat less food to create similar weight loss which is doomed to fail from the start for 97% of us with at least 10% excess body weight to lose. Fasting is best suited as a maintenance diet and not a weight loss diet for a variety of reasons. Simply put, the less weight you have to lose will mean the less likley slowing your metabolism will hurt. And let's not forget the fact that celebrities who skip breakfast such as Gwyneth Paltrow, for example, do not overeat for the remainder of the day whereas most overeaters who do not practice portion control and who are lead by dietary misconceptions, do not. You don't need a large meal to start your day but in order to maintain a high functioning metabolism, you do need to eat a portion of carbs, proteins and fat especially after sleeping. https://www.healthing.ca/wellness/food/intermittent-fasting-study-weight-loss
  • Why does Intermittent Fasting slow down my metabolic rate and invite muscle cannibalization?
    The science-backed reality of Intermittent Fasting and skipping meals is that the more weight you lose or the longer you create caloric deficits, weight loss will involve the loss of both fat and muscle meaning the likelier your body shifts into a famine or starvation dynamic. That's why Intermittent fasting is best suited to individuals who do not need to create long-term caloric deficits and is more of a lifestyle accommodation. The very last thing you want to do to your body while losing a material amount of weight is denying it the fuel to boost your metabolic rate which alone is responsible for at least 85% of how many calories your body burns. Eating more food means burning a greater percentage of it. The bottom line is the more weight you lose, the more your body will adapt by trying to prevent additional weight loss which is why it's absolutely critical to eat three dense meals on a regular basis to convince your body not to burn muscle and to maintain your metabolic rate which is your best dog in your weight loss campaign. The only thing harder than losing weight is gaining muscle. Maintaining your metabolism is how you lose weight without exercising. Starving your body of essential nutrients and energy for 16 hours a day is best suited for short term weight loss versus a long-term weight loss campaign. Moreover, from a metabolic perspective, there is zero benefit to weight loss over any term versus consistent meal timing, or three meals per day. TRE (time-restricted eating) has always been proven to lose less weight and to lose more muscle than by following a CMT (consistent meal timing) regimen. At the end of the day, or the beginning of it, you're starving for nothing. Remember, your body has a mind of its own. Our bodies are not genetically disposed to creating a beach-ready body. They are disposed over millennia to survive which is why weight loss is a collaborative goal with your body and mind and not against them.
  • Do I need to incorporate Low Carb, KETO or Fasting into My FAT Remedy?
    It's important to point out that dieting is not a one-size-fits-all. The main benefit to The FAT Remedy is that once you've learned how much of your favorite food your body burns every day, you are free to eat as you see and get fit. The bottom line is that your deeper understanding of the food-to-mind link gives you a greater perspective and freedom to eat any food under the sun at your own discretion and should any weight loss or maintenance effort fail, you'll always have a metabolic reference point from which to regroup and regain your weight loss confidence. You don't need yet another website, book or weight loss coach to simply tell you to eat 1200 carb-free and breakfast-free calories per day. Low Carb & KETO Diets are associated with higher cancer, heart disease and mortality rates. And Intermittent Fasting has been proven umpteen times to provide nary a statistical weight loss benefit. Instead of focusing on Diet Industry buzzwords, 'low carb', 'KETO', or 'Intermittent Fasting' all of which are proven to have no impact on weight loss and that rank a second to overall calorie restriction, i.e. you must simply eat slightly less food than your body burns in 24hrs., long-term weight loss success is dependent on right-sizing carbs, proteins and fat with each of your three meals per day. It's important to note that consuming too few calories can be detrimental to health, as it can lead to nutrient deficiencies, decreased energy levels, and slower metabolism. Therefore, it's crucial to approach any calorie-restricted diet with caution.
  • How much weight can I safely lose every day/week/month?
    Plan on safely losing roughly 1/2LB per day or roughly 1% body weight per week on MY FAT REMEDY. Initial weight loss will be even higher which stands to reason given your first 3 months will show the most improvement but the goal is to lose the most amount of weight for the longest period of time. A healthy weight loss both physically and emotionally means excluding fad dieting or short term aspirations and requires deconstruction everything you thought you knew about weight loss by losing a healthy amount of weight in an efficient and consistent manner. The fact of the matter is that we all have a fixed metabolic rate therefor the secret to weight loss is recognizing that losing weight is a 24HR equation and the identical one at that. Metabolic Groundhog Day. Master today to master your life.
  • You said that My FAT Remedy saves you from mindlessly eating approximately 1 million calories and roughly $2500 per year? How is that possible?
    You bet I did! Since I began My FAT Remedy, I easily eat roughly 2500 less calories on average per day. Every day. Given rising food prices that also equates to saving roughly $25-$50 per day in food and binging costs. Late-night eating either while exhausted, emotional, intoxicated or habitual can easily add additional pounds to your waistline and dollars to your credit card all while not even realizing that you could be consuming much less of both. In effect, saving you time and money ordering, eating and paying off the food you ate both in calories, dollars and hours in a gym. Weekly online food orders or multiple appetizers with each meal, mindless snacking and generally eating all day l is how you consistently add cost your health and financial well being.
  • How does the study results on 'Phantom Fullness' impact satiety?
    The revolutionary study (Camps et al,. 2016) proved what healthy Europeans and followers of The Mediterranean Diet have known for centuries! All while indulging in full fat cheese, rich proteins, white carbs, some desserts and alcohol every day! Portions are key to weight and not excluding your favorite foods. As the revolutionary study proved (and myself every day for the past 6 years) satiety is linked to richness, density and mouth-feel of the food you eat and not the total calorie count. Eating one fifth as much heavier food kept every study participant satiated earlier and fuller for longer than by eating 5X as many watered-down, lighter calories. That's why calorie counting all while feeding an unknown metabolic rate is the dietary path to nowhere. Your body or mind don't just want calories, they want dense food that supports the myriad of physical functions for hours at a time. And repeat three times a day. https://www.foodnavigator.com/Article/2016/07/06/phantom-fullness-it-s-not-the-calories-that-count-it-s-consistency
  • Why is is so easy to regain weight after weight loss?
    The answer to that question is as 3D as the people who experience it. In short, there are three reasons why it's so easy to regain weight loss are the following. Although we can easily 'lose' weight, we can never 'lose' a fat cell. The best we can do is to temporarily empty them for as long as we intentionally act. In addition to fat cell (adipose tissue) resistance, we must also navigate fat cell elasticity. As with all elastic cells, once they regain an elasticity they cannot be 'un-stretched' and they refill at a rate 2-4X faster than for first time weight gainers. Our cells remember how large they were and more importantly so do we. The second reason why regaining weight is all too easy is due to metabolic (slowdown) adaptation which is why our bodies naturally fight weight loss while apparently having no issue with our perpetual weight gain, and why we experience weight loss plateaus and higher set points. It simply takes larger caloric deficits to create smaller weight losses over time if weight loss was done too quickly or in an exclusionary way. Any*body that lost more than 10% body weight will always retain the ability to regain a week's worth of lost weight in less than 60 minutes which has a cumulative emotional impact on the very people that overate so much in the first place. Life may be life climbing a ladder but weight-loss life is like climbing a rope. It takes constant pressure just to hang on as opposed to climbing which doesn't include the pressure of simply letting go. Leading to the reality of weight loss which is rarely spoken of or accounted for. When two people who weigh the same 200lbs, for example, yet one person's weight remained constant for most of their lives while the other person lost 20%-30% body weight to reach the lower weight, the person who lost weight even though they weigh the same as the other person, will have a 20% slower metabolism resulting in the ability to eat less food to maintain their weight and leading to a vast increase in the rapidity of gaining weight. Those are merely some of the reasons (aside from deprivation-triggered binging) why it's critical to include your favorite foods as you lower your weight to greatly reduce the risk of overeating the minute you encounter those foods on the weekends, holidays, vacations or social outings.
  • Why are calorie counters wrong by as much as 30%?
    The average calorie counter or online BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) calculators under-guesstimate your daily burn rate by 30% or how much of your favorite food you can eat while losing weight because calories 'labeled' are far from calories 'consumed.' Which doesn't include your musculature, metabolism, sleep cycles or gut bacteria all playing important roles in maintaining a high-functioning metabolism and largely determining how much you weigh on any given day. No two people, including identical twins, digest anywhere near the same calories even after eating identical plates of food. The idea that anyone on Earth can accurately decide how much your body burns is simply a medical fallacy. There is no need to count calories because your body is the best expert on Earth. Eat a fixed volume of food in any 24HR period and then step on your scale the next day. Done. The FAT Remedy may be a bit of a boring way to eat in three fixed meals of any food under the sun, but in terms of weight loss along with preventing weight gain, it's extremely effective. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/science-reveals-why-calorie-counts-are-all-wrong/
  • How can eating more real food help me lose more weight?
    Call it formula cycling or reverse dieting. The bottom line to weight loss is that your metabolism calls the shots on how many calories it will burn today which is mostly based on how much food you fed it yesterday. Period. The goal to long-term weight loss is two fold. Firstly by mirroring your metabolism with your favorite food to track your weight loss with fixed variables such as time, metabolism and menu, and then to increase your intake when your body begins to slow by convincing your body that a dense meal is always on the way and not to burn muscle while waiting for it. That's exactly why a common Passover tradition which is counterintuitive is to eat less food the day before they begin a 24HR fast. it's an undeniable scientific fact proved over millennia, eating less food slows your metabolic rate and vice versa. Routinely eating more food especially when creating prolonged calorie deficits is the key to maintaining your musculature and by extension, your high functioning metabolism. Your body doesn't know if it's in the middle of the Sahara Desert or a Costco and can only react to the amount, density and frequency of the meals you feed it. A slowing metabolic rate isn't a message from your body to you, it's a message from you to your body. Therefore, formula cycling your meal volumes by as much as 50%-100% on some days is critical to your physical and mental well being. Plus who can argue against more food form time to time. Your body and mind need routine breaks from the stresses of continuous weight loss. The better news is that occasionally eating as many as 400 extra calories per day, of any food under the sun, will not lead to weight gain given the extra calories will act as a metabolic stimulant leading to burning even more of the food you ingested. Consider as many as 200-400 extra calories as a rounding error that fuels your next day's fire.
  • How can weight loss coaching help me with personal accountability?
    Consider losing weight just like any other financial therapy such as balancing a checkbook or keeping the company books. An intimate knowledge of any entity's daily burn rate creates the same initiate knowledge of the intake rate required to maintain or to create consistent surpluses or in our case, deficits. To that end, weight loss coaching with someone who walks the same path as you but that is slightly ahead of the game, can be extremely helpful in providing accountability for people looking to lose weight and to keep it off. I can get you on that path and more importantly, can help you get back on it when you stray and stray you will, because of the fact I walk and have strayed many times on that very path you are desperate to walk. The path that ends routine overeating on a daily basis. One of the key components of successful weight loss is accountability, and weight loss coaching provides this accountability in several ways: Regular check-ins: I typically meet with clients on a regular basis to discuss progress, set goals, and make adjustments to the menu and emotional plan as needed. This regular check-in provides an opportunity for you to report on your progress and get real-time feedback on your efforts. Goal setting: I work with you to set achievable goals that are specific, measurable, and realistic. By setting these goals and tracking progress towards them on a daily basis, you are considerably more likely to stay on track and make progress. Without doubt. Support: I provide the crucial emotional support and motivation to help you throughout your weight loss campaign not only on your easy days when you lose weight but on our worst days avoiding relapsing. Emotional and psychological support is crucial in helping you stay focused and committed to your goals. Education: We also provide education and resources to help you make informed choices about nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes. By understanding the science behind weight loss and healthy living, you're far more likely to make sustainable changes and stick to your goals. Overall, weight loss coaching can provide the structure, support, and accountability that you need to achieve your lifelong weight loss goals. By working with a personal coach, you can gain the tools and knowledge you need to make lasting changes and live a healthier, more fulfilling life. One meal and day at a time.
  • Do I need to eliminate 3500 calories of food to lose 1 LB or should I count calories?
    Absolutely not. The idiom to cut 3500 calories, or roughly 500 calories per day, to lose 1 LB of fat was coined in 1965 when 1 LB of fat was loosely determined to equate to 3500 calories. The Diet Industry advising a stranger to eliminate 3500 calories to lose 1 LB of fat is akin to a Financial Advisor telling you that there's 100 pennies in $1, without telling you how to earn or how to save $1. It's an irrelevant statistic. The myriad of problems with that static math is that doesn't take into account an individual's BMR, Basal Metabolic rate, daily metabolic rate, weight, musculature, exercise, gut bacteria, sleep cycles and stress levels. Including the most important fact of all. Your metabolism will slow if you constantly and consistently cut calories making the 3500/1Lb advice as reckless as it clueless. Your caloric, weight loss goals are as 3D as you are. Your first goal is to mirror your metabolism by eating a fixed, three-meal menu of any food under the sun to register the weight surplus, flatline or loss the next day yielding an exact metabolic measurement. The secondary goal is to divide an ambiguous metabolic number by actual food you enjoy eating. What difference does it make knowing how much tofu or vegan food your body burns if you don't look forward to eating it? The best diets are simply the most sustainable ones. The final goal to counting calories has nothing to do with counting calories at all and is strictly founded on counting time. In other words, how does eating more or less food during the day make you feel and are you inclined to continue doing it to create long term weight loss and weight maintenance when your weight loss campaign has ended. Counting calories is a useless endeavor for a variety of reasons ranging from generic and incorrect calorie counters, to your unique metabolic rate which burns less overall calories when you eat less food. The food you eat is mostly responsible for the percentage of that food your body burns in 24 HRS. Eating less of it burns a smaller portion of it. Moreover, just because you ate, for example, a 1000 calorie meal that does not mean that your body will need to burn 1000 calories to avoid a weight gain. As many as 30% of the food you eat passes through your body without being metabolized. In other words, calories "labeled' or eaten do not represent calories 'ingested'. Not even close. More important than calories are the portions of your favorite meals that satisfy you from breakfast, to lunch, to dinner and to bed. Not only to mirror your metabolism but to eliminate emotionally charged deprivation-triggered binging and also to know when you've eaten more for any period of time than your body can possibly burn and to expect the surplus the next day. And finally, to remember how waking up to certain weight gain made you feel knowing you didn't need to eat as much as you did the prior day. That level of psychological knowledge about food addiction or routine overeating can only be reached once you have removed all erroneous notions about food, carbs or calories. Why on earth would you prejudge what kind of wood you toss in a furnace when you have no idea how hot the furnace burns? What we do know is tossing less dense wood or less of it makes for a dwindling metabolic fire that once dwindled, is very hard to stoke. Uncertainty is what fuels fear. The FAT Remedy will remove any and all uncertainty as it relates to you, your body and to your favorite food. Within 24-72HRS. Guaranteed results.
  • Will I have to diet forever to avoid regaining lost weight?
    You won't be dieting on day 100 or even on day 1000 because you won't be dieting on day 1. The core to The FAT Remedy is metabolic mirroring with your favorite food which means losing weight is simply eating slightly ess of the food it takes to maintain your weight on any given day. Some days you'll want to create caloric deficits while on other days you will not. The term 'diet' by definition implies restricting one's favorite foods to lose weight which we never do on The FAT Remedy. Portion control has very little to do with conventional dieting. Creating caloric deficits in a 24hr period is a separate act from excluding your favorite food for the same day. My FAT Remedy represents a paradigm shift in your mindset about your ability to lose weight eating delicious food. Weight loss becomes a collaborative goal and not a punitive one. Once you've nailed down how much food it takes to gain, to maintain or to lose weight which takes about 72hrs., the choice becomes how many days in a row, in a week, a month or a year you wish to create caloric deficits or caloric surpluses. The difference is that all three outcomes are a merely slightly different formulas of the same food. In other words, you can physically, emotionally and psychologically quantify how much energy you wish to expend on any given day to receive how big of a reward. In this case, a boost to your self-esteem, confidence and overall better quality of life that weight loss invariably invites. For the first time in your life when it comes to food, you'll be in complete control of how big of a dose of food and happiness you want on a daily basis. As opposed to a complete lack of control of eating with the supersized serving of guilt on the side.
  • What is Metabolic (slowdown) Adaptation?
    During weight loss the body will respond to a reduction in calorie intake by decreasing its metabolic rate in order to conserve energy. This can make it more difficult to continue losing weight, as the body becomes more efficient at using the available energy. The bottom line is that weight loss isn't linear. It will slowdown which isn't magic. It's simply that unless you consume enough protein and carbs your body will begin to cannibalize its own muscles for energy which resulting in less lean body mass which in turn slows your metabolic rate. Two people who weight the same 200 lbs. for example, yet person 1 never lost an ounce of weight and person 2 lost 20% body weight or ~40 lbs., person 2's metabolic rate will be at least 20% slower than person 1 resulting in two very bad things for someone on a weight loss campaign. That person will be able to consume 20% less food than person 1 and will regain weight 2-4X faster as a result of surpassing their burn rate. Those two hurdles are enough of a reason to use weigh loss consulting on its own. During prolonged weight loss, the body may begin to break down its own muscles for energy. This occurs because the body is in a state of negative energy balance, meaning that it is burning more calories than it is taking in. As a result, the body may start to use its own muscle tissue as an energy source, in addition to stored fat. Muscle tissue is a metabolically active tissue that requires a lot of energy to maintain. When the body is in a state of negative energy balance, it may break down muscle tissue to release amino acids, which can be used for energy or for the synthesis of glucose. This process is called gluconeogenesis. The body prefers to use stored fat as an energy source during weight loss, as it is a more efficient and abundant source of energy compared to muscle tissue. However, when calorie intake is very low or when weight loss is prolonged, the body may begin to break down muscle tissue as well. This can lead to muscle loss and a decrease in overall metabolic rate, which can make it harder to continue losing weight.
  • Do I need to eliminate sugar, carbs or alcohol to lose weight?
    Absolutely not. In fact, too rigorous and exclusionary diets are the prime reason why 97% of conventional diets fail. Exclusionary diets, such as those that eliminate certain foods or food groups, can be successful in the short term for some individuals. However, in the long term, many exclusionary diets tend to fail for a variety of reasons: Unsustainability: Exclusionary diets can be difficult to sustain over time, especially if they are very restrictive. Many people find it challenging to maintain a diet that eliminates entire food groups or severely restricts calories or macronutrients. This can lead to feelings of deprivation, frustration, and ultimately, a return to old eating habits. Nutrient deficiencies: Eliminating entire food groups from your diet can lead to nutrient deficiencies. For example, eliminating carbohydrates can lead to a lack of fiber and B vitamins, while eliminating dairy can lead to a lack of calcium and vitamin D. Over time, these nutrient deficiencies can lead to health problems. Social isolation: Exclusionary diets can also make it challenging to eat out with friends and family, attend social events, and participate in other activities that involve food. This can lead to social isolation and feelings of alienation. Binge eating: Restricting certain foods or food groups can also trigger binge eating in some people. When they do finally allow themselves to eat the restricted foods, they may overindulge and feel guilty or ashamed afterward, leading to a cycle of binge eating and restriction. Lack of enjoyment: Ultimately, many people find that exclusionary diets simply don't bring them enjoyment. They may miss the foods they used to eat and feel like they are constantly depriving themselves, which can lead to feelings of resentment and dissatisfaction. It's important to remember that every person's body and dietary needs are unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. It's important to work with a nutritional specialist to develop a sustainable and balanced eating plan that meets YOUR individual needs and preferences.
  • Should I cut 3500 calories from my diet to lose 1 pound?
    No. That is yet another dietary myth created in 1965 by a scientist who measured the amount of calories in one pound of fat and who erroneously deduced that one pound of weight must equal 3500 calories. Which it does not. Not even close. Cutting 3500 calories is as fabricated a goal as recommending to drink 8 glasses of water a day or to walk 10,000 steps a day. Those numbers are all made-up a long time ago by someone who's never met you. It is a myth that eating 500 fewer calories per day will lead to losing one pound of fat per week for a variety of reasons namely that your body doesn't metabolize every calorie you eat but it will burn less of then the less of them you do eat. For the prior reasons such as metabolic burn rates, protein absorption rates, gut bacteria and sleep habits to name a few, the antiquated notion can be wrong by as much as 30% or roughly 1000 calories you unnecessarily eliminated from your diet placing undue psychological and physical burden on your mind and body. Because My FAT Remedy is a retrospective diet, only when you have all three variables can you make an informed and highly accurate decision as to how much of your favorite food your body burns every day and how much of it you want to eat at every meal.
  • How did you get into weight loss coaching?
    The short answer is because I believe that we are all born with the ability to do exactly what we were born, bred and raised to do. How do cats instinctively know how to groom or hos do spiders know how to eave intricate webs/ Who taught them? We all have an inherent mind-set which allows for a life with the least resistance. Helping people improve their lives or heling them mitigate damaging them is what I was born to do. After spending years working as a top level stockbroker at Canada's largest firm and online casino owner with over 250,000 active players, I found myself frequently acting as a therapist to my clients to constantly limit their potentially reckless behavior while listening to their concerns and helping them navigate their personal struggles. My job centered on encouraging beneficial habits while replacing their bad ones. One common issue that kept coming up was weight loss. Many of my clients struggled with their weight which triggered reckless decisions with their finances which manifested as reckless investing, problem gambling or substance abuse in an attempt to offset stress and food anxiety. My own extensive experience with personal trauma as a child and how that impacts every facet of our adult lives including eating which in turn impacted financial decisions, I was best suited to provide practical guidance and support to achieve their personal goals which we achieved via positive psychology, daily and hourly goal setting and habit reversal and creation. After achieving my own personal weight loss of 130lbs in 12 months, going from 364lbs to 230lbs, I found myself drawn to helping them in this area considering the entire weight loss industry is rife with dietary lies and misdirection. My knowledge and experience with how emotions impacts our financial and personal decisions help me support my client's most cherished goals and helped them set and achieve those goals in a disciplined, accountable and quantifiable manner. Put simply, I was as effective as I am passionate about helping others achieve their own weight loss goals which in turn sparks confidence in the rest of their lives. Nothing made my customers feel better than weight loss which includes making money. Despite my successful careers as a stockbroker and online casino owner, I found myself constantly drawn to helping my clients with their personal struggles, which lasted longer than simply helping navigate the perils of investing or gambling which can only compound themselves. Weight loss coaching became a natural fit. Throughout my own weight loss journey, I experienced the highs and lows of trying to lose weight, from the initial excitement and motivation to the inevitable setbacks and plateaus. I learned firsthand the importance of having a support system in place, and the benefits of having someone to hold me accountable and provide guidance along the way. Myself, my body and mind. As I continued to help my clients with their weight loss goals, I found that my own experiences gave me a unique perspective and understanding of what they were going through. I was able to provide them with not only practical advice and guidance, but also emotional support and empathy. I've often found that many people view their weight in the same binary capacity as their finances. As it turns out, weight is a lot like money. The number people focus on is second to the direction of that number and their control of it. That's why the same number can elicit opposing emotions given its recent direction and your view of how you control it. Ultimately, I made the decision to leave my successful careers behind and focus full-time on weight loss coaching. It's been incredibly fulfilling to help others achieve their goals and transform their lives, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to use my own personal experience to make a positive impact. I'm happy to contribute to people's lives as opposed to taking away from them. As I continued to work with clients in this capacity, I realized that personal relationships via weight loss coaching was where my true passion lay. It's been incredibly rewarding to see the progress my clients have made, and to know that I'm making a real difference in their lives. What would you like to change about your life? Maybe I can be of service to you and to your goals. Find out how, today. Live better tomorrow.
  • Why does reversing the Obesity crisis fall outside the scope of conventional Doctors, Dieticians and Nutritionists?
    In short, most medical schools don't even have Obesity prevention or weight loss programs coupled with most Doctor's, Dietician's and Nutritionist's lack of personal experience in long-term weight loss. Just because they can follow a no-carb, no-fat or no-breakfast lifestyle, they erroneously assume you can to. Or worse, that your failure is merely on your 'lack of will power.' Even though weight loss science is perpetually evolving, the medical community's weight loss remedies do not. Since when does a remedy that fails to remedy a patient's overeating or obesity fall on the patient's lap to remedy? Welcome to weight loss in 2023, no less. That medical rigidity obfuscates science-proven weight loss mistruths. They don't change their minds nor do they appreciate the fact that you will like to change your eating from time to time. Obesity isn't merely "calories in, calories out" or "eat less, exercise more". Which are both akin to telling people afflicted with any other addiction to "move more, drink or gamble less" or that beating a drug addiction is as simple as 'drugs in, drugs out". Those are as insulting as they are medically and psychologically inadequate. Obesity is a 3D construct because it's not as if you woke up 50-100 lbs. overweight one day. Weight gain, like weight loss, is a long-term game. Once the neuronal pathways have been created by daily overeating and binging, those acts have been forever linked with emotions and dopamine. Try as we might, you cannot unlearn emotional connections to bad behavior so the best way to limit those behaviors is by creating new neurons via positive emotional connections with a similar or greater emotional impact, such losing weight and limiting binging every day. You need to fight fire with fire by. You will require a positive emotion you can psychologically grab hold of to ward off the negative emotions learned by following self-destructive behavior learned over a long periods of time. The other reality for overweight individuals is that often times personal or mental health afflictions such as depression or a lack of belief in one's ability to defeat obesity is what fuels not necessarily daily overeating, rather supports the abandonment of healthy eating which routine overeating is the default answer. If you don't think you can follow a no-carb, no-fat or no-breakfast lifestyle for life then quite simply, you won't even try which unfortunately invites the opposite effect of runaway weight gain, which in turn invites even more eating etc. A never-ending cycle. That's why reversing Obesity is a long-term 3D construct that most Doctors who've admittedly never taken so much as an hour of Obesity prevention in Medical School nor have never needed to lose meaningful amounts of weight are simply ill-equipped to deal with an intricate challenges such as preventing overeating, weight loss and how to reincorporate normal consumption of normal food. In their defense, all they can do is to recommend the same lifestyle they follow given they're not likely to follow the science and to tell you to 'eat two cheeseburgers and call me in the morning.' Why not run your own metabolic and emotional experiment and see how it works? That's what worked for me. Most Doctors have neither the time or ability to help most patient's given their only remedy is rigorous no-carb, no-fat or no-breakfast lifestyle all based on your mythical will power leaving any failure to adhere to eating 1200 calories per day strictly on you. The good news is that yo don't need to follow any of those antiquated ideas to achieve immediate and long lasting success. That's why KETO is voted the worst diet for years and years given its all-fat, no-carb do-or-die scope and why the Mediterranean Diet is voted the best diet for its inclusive nature. The FAT Remedy is how you transition from binging to sensible eating one meal and day at a time. For yourself and by yourself.
  • Should I consider taking weight loss supplements?
    Consider weight loss supplements as a wind at your back. Once you've matched your metabolic rate with a tailor-made eucaloric diet (matching your caloric intake to your fixed metabolic rate with any food under the sun) and after you've spoken to a health care provider to assure no potential adverse reactions, you should definitely consider weight loss supplements as a way to maintain an effective metabolism which in turn will burn the maximum amount of food per day. That is to say, provided your weight loss campaign is already headed in the right direction, a steady combination of metabolic appropriate and all natural supplements can definitely increase and accelerate your weight loss by elevating your metabolism, preserving muscle and creating a fat-burning dynamic that lasts for the duration of the day. Consider weight loss supplements as nice but not necessary. Provided they don't hurt, then the likelihood is that they help. Moreover, the only reason why Drug Co.'s haven't spent billions of dollars proving that natural supplements are beneficial to weight loss is because there is no money to be made proving something works where people can go buy those supplements for fractions of the cost. Given they can't patent the outcome, they don't bother proving the reality. That's what accounts for the lack of pharmaceutical investment in weight loss supplements such as caffeine or curcumin. Both proven to help weight loss by everyone other than company's who sell weight loss medicine.
  • What is the best diet for weight loss?
    Not dieting at all. The best way to lose the most weight is to follow any eating pattern that you can follow for the longest amount of time.
  • How many calories do I need to eat to lose weight?
    You're the only person on the planet that can come close to answering that. In fact, one less calorie than your body burns. Additional weight loss is up to you but at least knowing your metabolic rate allows for a more generous meal menu. The reality is there isn't a soul, machine or book on Earth that can remotely guess at how many calories your body burns in 24HRS other than you. The good news is that you can find that exact number in 24HRS simply by eating a fixed volume of any food under the sun. The FAT Remedy shows you how to do that which is as easy as1-2-3 meals of your favorite food per day. After that, however much weight you want to lose in 24HRS will dictate how much weight you want to lose during the same time frame. Try as we might, we can't cram for a diet. Weekly weight loss demands two things. Losing roughly 2lbs per week requires losing roughly 1/3lb per day but also requires not overeating for seven consecutive days. You simply cannot lose more weight on any given day for an extended period of time without risking severe emotional, metabolic and physical damage.
  • Is it possible to lose weight without exercise?
    Of course. that's why a 'good body is made in the kitchen and not the gym." As science has repeatedly proven, exercise has nothing to do with weight loss. If it did, then our bodies would burn 1000 calories in a couple of hours of exercise and not a few hundred. While exercise has countless physical and psychological benefits for the human body and brain, weight loss is not nor will ever be one of them. Given the human body only burns a few hundred calories per hour of vigorous exercise yet will always retain the ability to gain 10X that in less than one hour, exercise will always rank a distant second to losing weight every 24hHRS. No*body can outrun obesity and you will not be the first to do so.
