Welcome to advanced fat loss strategies.
The idea for this blog article (actually the title) came from a good former collegue of mine who is passionate about training and food as we are but is struggling with his weight. This is frustrating especially if you are investing a lot of time and effort in it! He is definitely not alone with it: Stefan and I went through some of the common pitfalls too and did have longer periods where we didn’t make any progress. In this article we collected some of the reasons why your weight loss efforts may not be working as you wish. Continue reading “I Tried Everything Excluding Liposuction But I’m Still Fat”

Flying Fitfoodies Take Their Own Food On Board
Did you already read our blog post about how to nail your nutrition in vacation? One of my favourite tips is to bring your own food on the airplane because most of the time the food you get on board isn’t worth the calories. Sounds complicated but it’s much easier than you think. We compiled a small choice of groceries that are easy to handle and that you can carry unchilled for a while.

Let’s eat and grow!It’s so easy, isn’t it?
Yay, bulking (=being in a calorie surplus to build muscle mass)! What sounds like a dream for many, is in my eyes even more difficult than cutting (=being in a calories deficit to lose fat). Why?
- Finding the balance between gaining muscle and gaining fat: some of us do not like the more “fluffy” look and don’t allow themself to eat enough; others just get into a dreamer bulk (=insane calorie surplus) and gain far too much body fat. The sweet spot inbetween is desirable as too much or too less fat are not favorable for building muscles.
- Hard gainer: you feel like you eat a lot of food but actually you are such a restless person, that it’s simply not enough; or your appetite is low (stress or whatever) and you just can’t eat that much.
Nevertheless, difficult is not impossible and therefore we collected some tips to help you on your gainz journey 😉 .

Helping you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest while staying on track with your diet.
For me traveling is one of the most exciting and important things to do. I love seeing new places, learning about new cultures and eating delicious food. But traveling does put your nutrition goals at risk: most of the time you can’t control what you get served, how it is cooked or even if it has enough protein for you. Therefore I compiled some tips for you how to limit the damage and still enjoy your vacation to the fullest.

Congratulations! You have made the choice to invest in your health: not only does losing fat make you look good naked but has also sustainable health benefits, as we already told you here, or for the science nerds here. Nevertheless, you may be overhelmed about the information available: What diet should I follow? Is it bad to eat carbs in the evening? Do I have to do cardio? Or go daily to the gym?
To be honest, it is much easier than you think. Create a calory deficit. How? We help you with some tips.

Body positivity and self love are incredibly valuable to our society. Being different and not having to be ashamed of it are essential: acceptance and tolerance are more important than ever. And is definitely unhealthy to chase (fake) beauty images or to try to look like someone else. But I think there is a dark side to body positivity: being obese is unhealthy! And no, there isn’t such a thing as “healthy overweight”, stop kidding yourself, please!
