Mr. Knop, hasn’t everything already been said and written about diets?

Yours Button: My book is not a book about diets. On the contrary: I totally distance myself from diets. I don’t know of any that work long term. In the end, they usually lead to a yo-yo effect and/or to a disruption of the body-psyche balance.

Do you recommend another way?

If I want to maintain my desired weight in the long term, I have to change something fundamentally in my life and my diet. It’s not a matter of a few weeks. If I don’t do this consistently, it can end up not only putting on more pounds than ever before, but even fear of failure or an eating disorder.

In your book it says: “Nutrition is mandatory, sport is optional”. Is exercise overrated when it comes to losing weight and maintaining weight?

Diet is number one. The aim is to moderately but permanently consume less energy than you use on average. This is very difficult to achieve with movement alone.

So you can neglect sport when losing weight?

No not that. Exercise is also important – but it tends to complement the whole and ideally maintain muscle mass. However, it is also important here that you find out which movement suits you best and is fun. Similar to losing weight.

Have fun losing weight? That sounds like a contradiction.

Of course you should eat less when losing weight, but you shouldn’t neglect the enjoyment. If you give up a lot, you have to enjoy more. The credo is: varied enjoyment with variety, freshness and high quality.

Chocolate and co. aren’t taboo?

There is no scientific evidence for healthy or unhealthy foods. Therefore, exactly: nothing is forbidden, everything is allowed. In the long term, only the individual change in diet that ideally suits my lifestyle and personality will lead to my desired weight.

There are as many healthy experiences as there are people, because after all, everyone is different. When it comes to nutrition, it’s about diversity, variety – and the freedom not to be afraid of eating “unhealthily”. This is also a prerequisite for finding your own personal path to your desired weight.
