2:30: Javi: Health and wellness is such an important part to focus on in life.

2:57: Dr. Amanda: What does health and wellness mean to yo?

3:00: Javi: Health and wellness is trying to execute the best version of yourself through food in body or activities.

4:10: Dr. Amanda: Do you see people see the fruit of it?

4:15 Javi: Yes it may take months to see the fruit of health and wellness. All goals are different to see what to do for weeks and months in advance.

6:10: Dr. Amanda: What is your story of health and wellness?

6:14: Javi: My story will start when I am 15. It took me later to learn the power of nutrition.

9:30: Dr. Amanda and Javi discuss the impact of trauma on the health and wellness journey.

10:11: Javi: It’s almost like having an inner engine and voice thinking, “What can I do that can get me toward my goal?”

11:00: Dr. Amanda: What are tips that are important to you for a healthy lifestyle?

11:05:Javi:  Patience and having nutritional education help clients. The education aspect of healthy lifestyle helps the client.

12:45: Javi asks Dr. Amanda about her health and wellness journey. Patience is definitely a huge part of the journey.

15:10: Javi:  It is the small wins that keep you going.

16:40: Javi: I always go back to thinking, “What’s the alternative? Going back? You already know what that is.”

17:10: Dr. Amanda: Health and Wellness is a mindset and a lifestyle.

18:12:Javi: A training and exercise plan differs for each person asking about what they want to do and what they prefer. It is best to see what works best for your personality and it is not a one size fits all for any individual.

20:30: What was one of your successes working with a client?

20:55: There are so many! This one story is very different. She had the goal of losing weight and a healthier version of herself. She had a brain condition so we worked to adapt her workouts to support her.

22:40: Javi: Goals don’t just have to be for physique but how you live and what goals you want to achieve.

23:45: Dr. Amanda: Is there anything on your journey that stood out to you about your journey?

24:10: Javi: Everything changed after understanding the power of nutrition in terms of executing it to match what I want.

26:00: Dr. Amanda: Are there any resources to recommend to the audience?

26:15: Javi: I would say the top book that I recommend to my clients is Atomic Habits by James Clear.

27: 50: Dr. Amanda: What is one wisdom tip for the audience?

28: 00:  Javi: I would say do what you can to learn when you can. Find areas that you feel you can improve upon. Also, don’t ever give up and educate yourself.

29:00 Dr. Amanda: Giving up-that’s not an option.
