Michi: "How I lost 25 kilos with just one workout and healthy eating while maintaining my weekly feast"

Michi has become 73% stronger and 25 kg of fat lighter. Every Tuesday for the past 12 months, Michi Berlinka, 50, rings the bell at 13:10 sharp at Löwenstrasse 53a, AURUM Fit Studio in Zurich. "If someone had told me that I would name a fitness subscription as the best investment under 4000 Swiss francs, I would have thought the person was crazy. After all, I played handball and soccer for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I had suffered a knee injury, developed a great liking for everything that is unhealthy, and weighed 130 kg thanks to a lack of self-discipline. Today I'm the crazy one, already looking forward on Monday to the fitness appointment on Tuesday!"

Why diets don't work and a personal nutrition strategy does. An interview with nutrition expert Nilan from betteryou

Who really wants to try a "Brigitte sauerkraut diet" that relies on 1200 kcal a day to lose 2 kilos? Hopefully no one. Because diets cause stress, even unhappiness, are difficult to adhere to and do not bring long-term success. Meanwhile a nutrition strategy does, especially if it is developed personally for you on the basis of your body analysis. We observe that 90% of clients make outstanding progress with smart nutritional adjustments combined with the 6-Minute Workout and they are able to stick to their self-imposed regime. Why do diets fail and, in contrast, nutritional strategies based on individual body analysis lead to long-term success?

The fascinating truth about why bigger muscles aren't necessarily better

Did you ever try to move so explosively fast that your brain hurt trying to keep up with the task? Maybe during a 100 meters sprint to the finish line at school or maybe sometimes when running in a forest or riding a bicycle just trying to beat your training buddy to the imaginary yardstick? Fact is, when it comes to optimizing the performance of your nervous system and cementing the connection between your brain and body, it doesn't really matter how impressive your bicep is.

What actually happens when I don't workout?

Recently, I have actually received a few messages - be it via WhatsApp, SMS, or mail. Most of them had a discreetly desperate undertone and read, for example, "I see how my muscles, steeled with a lot of commitment, are fading away". But what happens in such a situation where you do not give your body the necessary stimulus and are there perhaps some quick tricks with which you can counteract a "physical decline"? Of course, and I'll show you how.
