He started practicing mindful eating.
"You have a subconscious pattern of just grabbing a snack, and you can be halfway through it before you even consciously realize that you are eating bad food. Being more mindful of this helps, so hypnotherapy techniques can make you more aware of what you are doing," he told Muscle & Fitness.

He practiced calming techniques.
To avoid reaching for junk food as a form of comfort during times of stress, Facinelli began practicing other stress-relieving techniques on a regular basis.
"You can calm your nervous system down very easily just by breathing in for five seconds, and breathing out for five," Facinelli explained. "And then you get less anxious."

He worked to create new food habits.
Rather than simply willing himself to eat a healthier diet, Facinelli made the conscious choice to replace his less than stellar eating habits with more health-conscious ones.
"You can be in the habit of being healthy, or you can be in the habit of being unhealthy," he explained.
He visualized his goals.
Facinelli told Muscle & Fitness that visualizing himself as a fitter, healthier person was a major component in actually transforming his body.
"If you dress for a certain job, the rest of the world will believe that you are that person," he explained. "When I lost that weight, I had an image in my mind, I printed pictures of people with physiques that I admire, and I would look at those for inspiration."
