I am sick and tired. The fitness industry is just a bunch of scams and lies. "Gurus" sell all kinds of random crap, one-size-fits-all-diets and of course supplements.

But nutrition is actually not that complicated. In fact, the knowledge in this course is all you need, in order to lose body fat, gain muscle or even train other people for the rest of your life.

This course isn't selling you another fad diet. It explains the reason why and how our bodies burn body fat or gain muscle mass and how to build a meal plan for yourself or your clients, in order to reach your goals.

I want this course to be your graphical reference book. It explains the fundamentals like calories and macros, what type of diets are actually out there and who should choose which, as well as how to train to lose fat and gain muscle.

You don't have to starve, you don't have to spend hours on a treadmill and you certainly don't have to buy another diet book, once you finished this course.

I spent literally 100s of hours (!) researching both nutrition and exercise and this course gives you the distilled version of what I've found. No bullshit, only science! This is not my opinion, these are facts. Very important for me!

You know the saying "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"?

This course teaches you how to fish! Or rather how to diet, but you get the idea ;)

Oh and if you don’t like the course, for whatever reason, you can request a full refund in the first 30 days, no questions asked!

Who is the target audience?
  • People who want to learn the fundamentals of nutrition
  • People who want to lose fat or gain muscle
  • Personal trainers looking to level up their nutrition knowledge

Diet coach, bodybuilder, husband, bagel lover

I'm a professional diet coach, training both clients all over the world as well as my wife, who is a competitive bodybuilder.

I spent several years perfecting my nutrition knowledge and I'm just tired of all the misguided information, lies and scams in the fitness industry. I spent hundreds of hours on research, so you don't have to!

I want to tell people the cold hard facts, rather than selling a super "secret" diet nobody ever heard before.

I'm also an entrepreneur, having sold my last company back in Germany.
