America: The land of the FREE? I say, let the truth set you free! We can only see the world through the lens of our own eyes. Except for a few honest news outlets, the media tries to show us a very different narrative of the “truth”, and they even try to censor those who disagree. I myself have been censored, and it doesn't feel good. Censorship is defined as the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. Censorship is when an authority (such as a government or religion) cuts out or suppresses communication. ...This may be done because it is considered wrong, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient to the government or other authority. Being censored for speech was common in Nazi Germany, or Communist China, but not in America! Let me share my truth with you. And be sure to get out and vote in person:
I was born in the USA, but my ethnicity is a mix of French, German, Welsh, American Indian, Mexican, and Spanish. I grew up in a poor Latino neighborhood in California, called El Monte. As a child, I was overweight and constantly teased for it. My last name, Delgado, actually means “slender” in Spanish, so you can imagine the ridicule I received! I was constantly called fat by the other children in my neighborhood, and was negatively judged for it. One insult that I remember them asking me was “Who makes your clothes, Omar the tentmaker?”
Children can be cruel, and prejudice can run deep from insecurity. Growing up in El Monte, fighting for my life became a regular occurence. On most days, as soon as school got out, and in front of the entire school, I would have skirmishes with the local bullies. I usually lost the fights. Even though I was a big kid, I was fat, and slow. Other days, I would have to run home while being chased by Mexican gangs. In one incident, I had to jump the fence before 5 boys could beat me up, as I dropped on the other side of the fence, with my heart racing, the leader yelled “sissy” why don’t you fight? I felt humiliated, and this was not because I was overweight, but only because I looked "white", and had green eyes. Needless to say, being embarrassed was a part of my childhood.
Then, one day, at the age of 11, I joined Pop Warner football, playing for the El Monte Meteors. Although it hurt to get hit, I decided to hit back! As I felt myself getting in shape, my confidence in my physical ability grew. For the first time, I saw how a “starvation diet” and exercise (I ran over 5 miles everynight after football practice) could lead to an increase in my self esteem.
Interesting as life has its “coincidence” the “School Bully” tried to play for the Meteors and I asked all the other teammates if they did not mind, if i could line up to be the person that faced off with him on every play?
The fury, the humiliation i suffered was all focused on the hardest hits i had ever made upon this man. He may not have known I was one of his victims that he chased after school, yet I sure knew who he was. Revenge feels good at the time, yet the underlying issues still exist. The feelings of being inadequate and not liking myself still were present at the deepest level. Maybe partly being brought up by my dad who worked all night as a truck driver, then went to the bar to drink after work. I did not feel I could talk with my dad.
To make matters worse, my FASTING starvation diet was not sustainable. Once the season ended, my diet ended too, because I was so hungry I would cry myself to sleep most nights. I told myself that I was “allowed” to eat again, and that’s exactly what I did: eat. Sadly, within just one month, I had gained back 50 lbs! The “rock hard body” and “ripped abs” disappeared and my esteem was gone too. I had kept all my overweight clothes since I had no confidence I would sustain the pain of hunger. Have you ever had this happen to you? The YoYo diet of portion control mixed with fasting.
My poor eating habits of consuming animal products at every meal (although i avoided sugar and salt) continued as I got older, and at the young age of 21, I suffered a TIA stroke. This was a shock, but I knew that it could only be up to me to get healthy. I learned to follow a plant-based, oil-free, sugar free diet, after reading a book called “Live Longer Now” and by 22, I was back in shape! This time after nearly 3 years of not having to restrict the size or frequency of my meals, so long as I started with vegetables and fruit to fill up first. I learned I could let go of my oversized clothes and give them to “GoodWill.”
At the age of 28, I created a successful seminar business teaching about healthy eating and exercise. I thought that I was on top of the world. Then, tragedy struck again when the mother of my child died on Thanksgiving morning from congestive heart failure, complicated by childbirth and hyperthyroidism. Years later, I wrote a book "Grow Young & Slim" based on balancing hormones because of this tragedy.
Shortly after her death, I went into bankruptcy, because I was depressed from my loss, blaming others as I had no mentors to guide me with financial decisions. Losing all of my possessions, I felt as if I had lost everything, especially my pride. Then, I realized the one thing I still had: my drive and passion to help others. I did my best to gradually surround myself with personal development people, after being invited to do work with Tony Robbins based on my newest book “Blood Doesn’t Lie” in exchange I attended “Date with Destiny.” Tony wrote the book “Awaken the Giant within”, based on the current Netflix success “I'm not your Guru.”
As I learned NLP & Neuro Reprogramming, it took me over 40 years to overcome my emotional & physical weaknesses. Now, approaching age 67, I'm in the best shape of my life having broken to world records in strength and endurance!
I’m happily single, with 5 children and 2 grandkids. I approach everyday with a goal to guide others to greatness, as I did with Tony Robbins, Tai Lopez, Mark Victor Hansen, Loral Langemier, and Niurka. I believe I have been preparing my whole life to create a proven and tested program for you.
So why do you follow us? What are your biggest issues? Your engagement is truly appreciated, even if it's negative at first. When I find that many people need to first “share their poor me story” just as i did above.
Yet it is important to understand about the subconscious mind, repeating the same “loss story” in your own mind and to others reinforces this deep into one’s subconscious mind. To get to the next level of health, happiness and your career; it will be a tremendous weight lifted off your back (Belly or Butt, depending on your genetic fat distribution) when you learn to take responsibility for your emotions and the limits you place on yourself.
I became certified and highly trained in the most advanced methods of NLP, TimeLine therapy (Psychiatrists call it Regression therapy) to let go of limiting beliefs (I'm too old, too fat, not educated with the right degrees etc).
