When it comes to bulking up and gaining weight, many underestimate how much they are supposed to eat.

5 intense workouts per week at the gym won’t bring significant results if you cannot give your body what it needs. You need a lot of energy.

This is why everyone who wants to put on muscle mass seriously should have a repertoire of different and easy recipes for themselves.

Those should not only taste good and contain a large number of calories and protein in low volume.

They should be easy and fast in preparation too so you can cook them…

Clubhouse has become the next big thing that everybody’s talking about.

Or has been talking about.

Having established an invite-only policy is only one of the secrets of its boom.

The app is easy to handle, delivers a good user experience and its whole setup is very simple.

Everyone has the ability to stream.

Unlike most Podcast platforms, Twitch, and Youtube where you need certain equipment, everybody has the possibility now to stream in their club from any location with their smartphone.

But why is it that the podcast-like Social Media platform has received a huge hype within its first…

As I am continuing my Medium journey now after a short break I realize again how many writers there are who want to make money but don’t make it a priority to write and publish as consistently as possible.

There are endless distractions in today’s world. Social Media, Netflix, Dating are only a few to be mentioned. But on the other hand, most of us have responsibilities, like family, relationship, job or university (in my case).

I am as guilty as anybody.

In January, the exam phase was at its peak and I wanted to pass everything well, so I…

Once again, I am in a bulking phase and realize that eating more calories than you burn can be even more challenging than losing weight, especially on workout days.

Your body is used to taking in a certain amount of food at a time and sometimes it refuses eating over one’s fill.

Yet, eating 4 to 5 meals a day, high-protein, and having a caloric surplus is the foundation to build muscles.

2/3 of your success consists of what you eat.

Being a person who was always thin, I struggled to gain weight and staying skinny for years. …

Most of us want to be entertained and stay on track with the newest and hottest shows that television and streaming services provide.

There is an endless offer of shows, films, and documentaries on the platforms.

The popularity of streaming is undeniable, its importance too because not only does it deliver home entertainment, but the industry is so big that it provides millions of jobs around the world.

It has become part of our culture to say phrases like:

  • “Netflix and Chill”
  • “Let’s binge some episodes together tonight!”
  • “Let’s do a Watch Party” (Amazon Prime)

The level that the television…

When the pandemic hit the globe, everyone got crazy about how to protect themselves against COVID-19.

I think it’s funny because vitamin D had gotten hype at the beginning of the crisis, but was available for decades before.

Suddenly the need was high and so many who never cared for their immune system were instantly changing their behaviors. I wish now that I would have been invested in some of the bigger supplement companies one year ago.

The fact that it is the single most important ingredient our immune system needs to work well and fight viruses and bacteria is…

Please don’t try such an experiment yourself if you are not fit or have any serious disease. If I can’t stop you from trying, get medical support and let a doctor have a look at you while doing it.

Lying in bed at the end of the day and being unsure if I should call an ambulance was not part of the expectations I had from this experiment.

There was this hype a few years ago about eating 10,000 calories in one day. Every Fitness YouTuber hopped onto that hype train and tried it for pure entertainment purposes.

As a…

Most people approach movies as a form of entertainment, which they are.

It’s one of the biggest industries in the world, grossing far over 100 billion dollars globally every year (when there’s not a pandemic).

We want to be entertained and we want to see great and inspiring stories. Films are the best types of media for that purpose because their dramaturgy lets you see, think, feel, smell, and also taste what you see on the screen.

Unless you’re watching in a 5D cinema, you are automatically imagining all the sensory impressions you are being shown. Your brain processes those…

During the last 30 years, the fitness and health culture had very different understandings of what’s healthy and what’s bad for you. How to lose weight was mostly the focus of the discussion.

Some of the theories they came up with were science-based, but a lot was pure non-sense.

First, it was fat in the ’90s and 2000s.

Fats were considered the purest evil and it led so many people to cut them out as much as possible: no oils, no cheese, no dressing, no good part of the meat.

The problem is the language.

Everyone thought to not get…

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” — Hippocrates

Too much of today’s food industry’s processed products can enormously increase the risk for sicknesses and diseases long-term — like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.

But is that the reason for never eating anything that is considered unhealthy like a burger or pizza? Is it necessary to always prepare your food and take your Tupper boxes with you wherever you go?

I am a health and fitness enthusiast and think everybody can achieve a sane body if they get their mind right first. …
