No Angry German is a side project with a lot of different intentions, including getting things off my chest that I feel need to be shared with the world.

While these people may be more famous than you and I, they are still simply humans.
No Angry German is a personal blog where things are shared that I generally find interesting, and there is no clear focus as to what the path forward will be, however, if you do go on to read more about my story, you may find out that there are certain things I do find interesting, often some of them that border conventional opinion, and where we will be taking a look at some of my interests, whether they be health or business related.
Should you find anything interesting on this page, I would personally love if you share it with the people that you may believe find it interesting, and with the initial focus of the site, there will definitely be some alternative health views being shared. That is, at least if you subscribe to the whole idea of eating 3 main meals per day, while snacking throughout the day as well.
Some of these posts may never lead to full, extensive and developed posts, whereas I might either choose to delve deeper into topics that I find interesting.
My current focus can definitely be described as one that does not align with that of conventional media. Across the globe, but especially in the US, there are many people struggling with various health issues, however, many of them stemming from sub-optimal life choices when it comes to nutrition, and generally just other life choices related to sleep, alcohol and more.
With the general health of the population being in a rapid decline, my overall approach is to see whether certain things can be radically changed, not just in order to get significantly better results but also with the intention of improving the ease of the process.
For instance, an area that I have recently (over the last year or so) become increasingly interested in is how our nutritional choices affect our way of living, including what we can do to not just live longer but also live better.
The overarching sentiment that prevails is that weight loss needs to be hard. There is a big group of people, who, for whatever reason, seem to believe that weight loss needs to be hard. It needs to include various things that I, for one, would much rather be without.
Over the course of time, I have met various people that have been trying to lose weight, quit cigarettes, improve their sleep, or whatever their heart may desire, however, many times the various approaches that people seem to take seem incredibly counterintuitive.
When it comes to weight loss, whether in the face or some other body part, many people seem to be of the belief that the easiest way to do so is by counting the amount of calories that they are consuming on a daily basis, and while it may seem like the intuitive thing to do, it seem overly complicated to constantly track how many calories you are consuming on a daily basis.
You don’t just simply need to be making sure that you have everything written down that you have been consuming throughout the day, but you also need to figure out the overall amount of calories you were consuming in that meal.
It seems tedious – because it is. Not only that, but since you may not always be able to accurately track the specific amount of calories that was in the food, you may not even be entering the right information into the document or app that you are using. On top of that is the fact that the model also relies on you accurately knowing how many calories your body is consuming on a daily basis, meaning you will need to be tracking your daily exercise levels, as well as accurately tracking their level of intensity as well.
If you ask me, all of that sounds just extremely extensive and boring, and like there is a whole range of possibility that you may be making a mistake along the way.
There may be certain other lines of thinking when it comes to how you could go about losing weight in a seemingly more natural way, with some subscribing to the idea that intuitive eating is the way to achieve your weight and health goals.
While quickly skimming through the pages on those principles, I would absolutely love for anyone to confidently say that the idea of intuitive eating has really been what has changed their life, but when looking closer at it, their guiding principles include “feeling your fullness” – whatever that means.
I can tell you this much – when I was at my heaviest, I could eat a relatively good portion of food while still not feeling full. With heaps of people suffering from weight problems, and the problem only having gone up over the years, I simply refuse to believe that the way to actually achieve sustainable change is by “respecting your body”, which is one of the other guiding principles that they are advocating for on their website.
Having been around for 28 years so far, I would like to believe that I actually have a pretty good sense of the amount of calories that my body needs in order to be able to perform the function that I am looking to have it perform, however, if I was always to “respect my body” (and the various cravings that it is sending my way), I would be living off of a diet that consists mainly of Domino’s and M&M’s, pouring them down with solid amounts of Coca Cola as well.
I am all in favor of people making life decisions and changing the way that they are going about things, and I have personally gone through various different weight classes. That is not to say that I have ever considered myself to be massively overweight, but I was previously at a stage where I was not happy with the way that my body looks – and rather than encouraging body which is inherently unhealthy (whether you like it or not), encouraging easier to follow health principles could hopefully encourage an improvement in the country’s overall state of health.
Regarding obesity and body positivity, it is important to keep in mind that obesity has been linked to an increase in the rate of various cancers, significant wear on the body in general (like the knees for instance), and simply cannot be argued to be healthy.
If someone wishes to actively stay a rather large size, they are free to do so, however, it is in my mind entirely wrong to encourage it as a practice that is considered safe, as this may additionally have an impact on how it’s perceived among children.
There is a reason why sumo wrestlers have a life expectancy that is significantly shorter than that of the average Japanese male. In fact, sumo wrestlers are only expected to live to the age of somewhere between 60 and 65, which is more than 10 years shorter than their other comparable counterparts.
My definite feeling is that you should allow anyone to live life the way that they desire to, for as long as they aren’t harming anyone else. If someone gets satisfaction out of smoking, then that is a choice I will let them have, but the same way that we have been putting the nasty pictures on the little cartons that contain these cancer sticks, I would also like to further the cause that we are at least being truthful when we are telling people whether they are putting something in their mouth which is ultimately extremely unhealthy.
My desire with this website is that it will hopefully help some people get meaning in their life. If I can help people get to the goals that they want to achieve, that is a very big measure of success for this website, and that would make me think that I have achieved everything here that I could absolutely want to.
If your goal is to lose weight and you find some level of personal success from reading the articles that I have on the topic, that is great. This website is not made with the intention of being the one with the most extreme measures by choice, however, we may be exploring certain topics that you won’t find many other websites recommending, for reasons that I do not understand.
My intention is also that there will be a great focus on some of the topics that I personally believe have been overlooked for way too long in the weight loss community, and that is that you cannot simply believe that one calorie is the same as another calorie. The body takes in what you feed it, and if you feed it pure garbage, you simply won’t actually be gaining the types of nutrients that your body requires, likely leaving you feeling horrible in the process as well. Whether you consume a calorie from a carb, from a protein or from fat, your body will end up with different bodily reactions, and it’s only by understanding these interactions that you can start getting the results that you want. For instance, if you are trying to put on additional muscle which comes from the fact that you are additionally increasing the amount of time that you spend at the gym, as well as the intensity at which you work out when you’re there, you can’t achieve the muscle building results that you are hoping for if you aren’t consuming the necessary protein to allow the muscle building that you want.
Maneet Chauhan, Phil Mickelson, Robert Costa, Zion Williamson, Delta Burke, Josh Peck, Kevin Belton, Whitney Thore, Jimmy Kimmel, America Ferrera, DJ Khaled, Tom Segura, Ron Funches, Darlene Cates, Sara Rue, Kevin Love, Jill Scott, Wayne Knight, Jackson Galaxy, Kirstie Alley, Adrienne Bailon, Drew Carey, Ashley Graham, Dawn French, Karen Pence, Alanah Pearce, Chris Christie, Bhumi Pednekar, Gucci Mane, Gary Anthony Williams, David Goggins, Kathy Bates, Billy Gardell, James Corden, Raven Symone, Emilia Clarke, Marshal Yanda, Kenan Thompson, Gabby Sidibe, Miranda May, Arbonne may all have had impressive weight loss journeys, but the reality is that they have all had to go through the same thing in order to be able to drop the pounds that they have dropped – improving their dietary situations.
For me personally, I have had great success in achieving the desired weight loss, as well as a range of other benefits from engaging in the act of water fasting, like a 7 day long water fast, which I believe is an incredibly powerful tool when it is being done in a sensible manner. However, I will be happy to say that there are lots of ways of doing things wrong, like not engaging in the practice if you are already at a body weight where it may not be safe to do so.
When you are fasting, there are a good range of things that you should know before you choose to delve into this adventure, if it is one that you actually have an interest in. From my personal experience, I can tell you that I was entirely hesitant at first given the fact that my mind had been pre-conditioned to the notion that there was only one right way to lose weight, and that is the absolute hardest way of them all – eating small, regular meals, while increasing the amount of cardio that you do.
What if I told you that I believe you can achieve your weight loss goals, while doing it in a way that will end up being a lot easier for you in the long term, and will have a massive impact on your health besides simply giving you the strength to be able to lose the weight that you want to lose?
5 Tips on How to lose weight fast without the need for exercise
I’ve previously managed to lose 27 pounds in as little as 15 days, as you can see if you watch the videos on my Youtube channel, and all you have to do to achieve great weight loss goals yourself is to:
- Subscribe to this website
- Open your mind up to a new way of thinking
- Be ready to skip meals
- Eat without feeling limited on eating-days
- Be ready to try out fasting or intermittent fasting
The good thing about this blog is that that is exactly what it is – it is my blog and I choose solely what it is that I will in fact be writing about. If I wake up tomorrow feeling as if there is a different topic that I want to write about, I can easily do so.
I won’t be telling you that you can’t be eating a piece of chocolate cake once in a while if that is really what you want to do, but I will be showing you all the science that backs the various principles that we’ll be exploring on this website.
I have personally lost roughly 35 lbs over the course of a year, which was an absolute nightmare to go through, as I was cutting it the traditional way. However, on the other hand, I have now also tried entirely not eating – doing a 9 day water fast. Yes, my intention was to do a 10 day water fast, but I ended up cutting it a day short as I did not like the way that I was feeling towards the end.
My whole philosophy, while including fasting, may be that it is a great tool that you can use, but I will also encourage you to take your precautions, which includes listening to your body when it is telling you that you ought to be changing the direction that you are heading in.
Should you have additional interest in doing so, I would encourage you to read the about me section, where you can understand how my living with a neuromuscular disorder has played a large role in pursuing a fasting journey.
My every intention is that I will be sharing a very thorough video log whe as I am planning on doing a longer water fast than the 9 days that I have actually been able to achieve, as I would ideally like to be able to do 14, 15 or 21 days.
There are scientific reasons why you may want to extend your fasts longer than simply doing the more commonly popularized intermittent fasting regimens, as you are likely increasing the self-cleaning aspects that your body undergoes with one of these extended projects.
If you are a person who has previously been struggling with weight loss and you may not be ready, or ever want to, do an extensive water fast, you should easily be able to start dropping those pounds, both a lot easier, and faster, by switching to a slightly less strict fasting regimen like OMAD (one meal a day) or an intermittent fasting journey, where you might limit your eating window to 4 or 6 hours per day.
I will also be happy to admit that I have a bad tendency of actually breaking the fast early. Am I a little bit disappointed in myself, sure, but if I set out to do a 10 day water fast and I simply end up doing 9 days, I have still gotten extremely far, and that only sets me up to be increasingly eager to hit the goal the next time I try it out. There is absolutely nothing embarrassing about not reaching the desired goal that you immediately set out to achieve, as it is about getting closer to the goals that you want to achieve.
I will also be sharing some of the before and after weight loss results, including pictures, when I am doing these extensive water fasts, and you’ll be able to see that the weight does in fact show a difference of more than 20 pounds when doing a 10 day water fast, however it is important to know that not all of that is fat and that some of it will inevitably be coming back as you start eating again.
One of the great reasons why I believe so many people fail in their endeavor to lose weight is because they have no clue what they should be expecting. It can be very demoralizing to see the scale go down by more than 20 pounds over the span of 10 days simply to see it seemingly jump right back up as soon as you start eating again.
By preparing you for what may be ahead, if you do choose to start fasting, you may also end up actually sticking to it and seeing some of the results that I have personally been able to achieve, as well as reaching your own goals, while still remembering that you are on a journey to bring those numbers on the scale in a direction that you are seeking. Even if you manage to lose 10 lbs during a fast, but you regain 5 lbs afterwards, you have still managed to move the direction of losing a significant amount of weight.
Additionally, it is important to know that you will always be regaining some of the weight when you stop a fast and start the refeeding process, and this may even be going on for a period of time after you end the fast. That will especially be the case if you have been going on a relatively long fast, whereas if you are doing either OMAD or intermittent fasting, you won’t be seeing those same fluctuations when you are stepping on the scale.
I will additionally be encouraging you to not just rely on the scale, although the scale is a good thing. If you really want to be measuring your results, it is a lot better if you are measuring the results in what you are seeing visually, and that is especially the case if you aren’t just working on improving your weight, but also working on changing up your entire body and adding additional muscle to your frame (which can significantly change the way that you look and carry yourself).
Although the science is seemingly unclear as to how easy it is to actually put on muscle weight while you are losing fat, you may at the very least end up getting a very misleading picture if you manage to put on 5 pounds of muscle while losing 5 pounds of fat.
If you are just getting started out at the gym, it is not at all unlikely to think that you will be able to put on an additional 5 pounds of muscle, as there will be a lot of, what people generally refer to as “newbie gains”. That initial layer of muscle is definitely significant and can help you massively change the way that you look, feel and carry yourself. At the same time, when you are able to additionally drop 5 pounds of fat, you may be able to see significant changes to the overall way that your body looks. However, if you were to simply step on the scale in the process of all of that, all you would see is just that the weight has been remaining the same throughout this journey.
In that situation, having pictures to prove that you have been consistent may be what keeps you on track, keeps you going.
