The expert wrote the book “Slim for the Lazy” – and moderator Daniel Boschmann also admits: “Losing weight for the lazy – I’m in!”. Lekutat himself lost 22 kilograms painlessly. “It’s always important to stick it out. Anyone can lose weight, but most of the time you get the yo-yo effect quickly.

Also important: Losing weight isn’t about looks. There is beauty and aesthetics in all weight classes. “It’s a matter of health. What’s floating there, the fatty tissue, is an organ that also damages us,” says Lekutat. “It makes inflammatory mediators, it makes hormones, it’s metabolically active. .and so we shouldn’t let it waver.”

Cheese is a protein, grapes are healthy and contain carbohydrates. Once you eat grapes, the sugar causes the release of insulin, which in turn inhibits fat burning.

Lose weight with simple tips: Drinking before meals also helps
Another example is gummy bears — full of sugar, “straight out of hell,” says Lekutat. But: A study has shown that the effect can be lessened if the protein-rich quark is consumed beforehand.

Other tips should also help, such as “Water Preloading”. Half a liter of water is drunk half an hour before the meal. “It causes us to quench our thirst – and we often confuse thirst with hunger and we don’t stop eating even though we are actually thirsty,” says Lekutat.
