What’s up world?! It’s been a long time since I’ve written here. I apologize! (And thank you to all of those who’ve emailed me asking me where the heck I was.)

I’m here alright. In fact, I’m writing more than ever. You can catch me on the MyBodyTutor blog where I write at least 3x per week.

I do have lots of interesting posts planned for 2011, so please stay tuned. (If you don’t want to miss any posts subscribe here for free and every time there’s a new post, it’ll automatically be emailed to you.)

2010 was an interesting year.

Our beloved George passed away in March which was so heartbreaking. He was the biggest teddy bear in the world.

I moved – which is always exciting, yet nerve wracking (still in NYC – just moved 14 blocks), and my nephew is getting so big! Ugh, I love him so much.

As far as MBT, this has been another terrific year, thankfully!

More and more people are starting to understand that no matter what diet or exercise plan they follow (even if it’s the “perfect” one) it’s pointless, if they can’t stick to it. Consistency is very hard.

I truly believe (and know!) our proven methods and system can help anyone finally stick to their diet and exercise plan – which is always exciting. Yet on the flip side, it’s also a very daunting thought. (A lot of responsibility comes with believing and knowing that.)

As far as press for MBT, it’s always flattering to be featured on prominent blogs.

MizzFit reviewed our service and wrote a glowing review. You can check that out by clicking here.

#1 NY Times Bestselling author, Gretchen Rubin, of the Happiness Project interviewed me about my thoughts on happiness (a subject I think and write a lot about) on her blog. You can read the interview by clicking here. requested an interview where I share my thoughts on why I started MBT, and why I started exercising at such a young age. You can check that out by clicking here.

And finally, a client, who also happens to be a writer for the Huffington Post, blogged about her experience of meeting me. This was the most interesting write up of MBT to date. Check it out by clicking here.

As far as GuruGilbert, let’s keep the tradition alive, shall we?

As I’ve done for the past 2 years, I compiled a list of the most popular posts of 2010 based on your comments, emails and tweets.

Here we go…

One. Observing what people say and actually do is fascinating. In this post I explore the difference between our revealed and stated preferences.

Two. After seeing the movie, Hurt Locker, I was really inspired and wrote a post. As we grow older, I think it’s very easy to lose sight of what we really love.

Three. Dating and relationships are something I love thinking about. In this post, I wrote about the paradox of dating very successful people.

Four. Self-made people are my heroes. People who work for what they have, as opposed to having things handed to them are so much more interesting. In this post, I explore a simple litmus test of how to find out what you’re really passionate about.

Five. Comparing yourself to others can destroy your happiness. Life isn’t a competition. In this post, I explain why relativity can make you very unhappy, if you’re not careful.

Six. In what is one of my most popular posts of all time, I argue that most people do what they do for a living only to be able to signal that they’ve “made it” while deep down they’re extremely unhappy. I plan on writing a lot more about this in 2011.

Oh man. Sad story. Only six posts compared to the 17 of 2009 and the 25 in 2008.

As always, I thank you for reading. I’m very lucky to have such a loyal readership and I appreciate it. If ever you want to get in touch feel free to email me. I love hearing from my readers!

Lots of exciting things to come in 2011. Onwards and upwards!
