The refrigerator of a food content creator
FIV: Hello dear Julia, thank you very much for taking the time for this interview today. Let’s get right into it! One of your passions is cooking. On your social media channels, you share low-calorie recipes that help with weight loss. So we’re interested to know if your fridge is rather full or rather empty as a food content creator?
Julia: Well, in the past it was always overcrowded. I always had super many ideas for new creations when shopping, but since last year I pay more attention to what and especially how much I buy. Meanwhile, I plan my recipes, buy only the ingredients I need for the recipe and should something remain over, I create the follow-up recipe.
Shopping in the supermarket: what should not be missing?
FIV: This way you always use everything and don’t have to throw anything away! Which foods should not be missing from your supermarket shopping?
Julia: Seasonal fruit and vegetables. That’s always the first thing that ends up in my cart. I’m also always on the lookout for new light products. It’s important to make sure that they don’t contain more sugar by reducing the fat. There are a lot of shopping traps, because not everything is light – where it says light on it.
Signature dish: 0 points goulash
FIV: Since you’re just super into food and the cooking involved, we’re interested in what your signature food is?
Julia: In fact, it’s a dish. My famous 0 point goulash. I had done Weight Watchers back then and there were 0 points foods. From these 0 points foods I then cooked myself an indescribably delicious goulash, which has been recooked by my community for years.
Julia’s experience: Weight Watchers
FIV: With Weight Watchers and without exercise you lost a proud 38 kilos, would you like to summarize your experience with Weight Watchers?
Julia: My biggest hurdle to losing weight was that I always had an excuse why the next Monday would be better to start. One night I was googling for experiences on a gastric balloon and came across Weight Watchers in a forum post. In fact, I only knew about it from my grandparents, but decided to attend a “meeting” as a result. Since I didn’t know what was in store for me, I first went shopping for some nice underwear. Unfortunately, with size 52, there is not the nicest selection and I thought I would have to undress there to weigh myself. When I was there it was completely different and I didn’t have to undress either. As a participant you count points instead of calories, which was easier for me to start.
The key to my success, however, was that I was weighed and thus had a certain pressure to deliver. I could no longer postpone my weigh-in days, which ensured that I was disciplined and did not cheat.
Books: “Happy Fast Food (Express)”
FIV: In addition to social media, you are also an author and have written two cookbooks “Happy Fast Food” and “Happy Fast Food Express”. Would you like to introduce your books to us?
Julia: In fact, there are now 4. I sell two as a guide in my weight loss course. When my weight loss journey began, there was one thing I didn’t want to do: go without! But how can you do that if you love fast food and hearty food, and so does your environment? It’s simple! I transformed classic fast food recipes by cleverly substituting foods. This makes them much lower in calories and still suitable for the whole family. So you can lose weight without the feeling of constantly having to do without something.
Book publication: duration 6 months
FIV: Oh Wow! What was the process behind publishing the two cookbooks like? How long does it take you to have your cookbook ready in your hands for the first time?
Julia: In fact, the process takes a good 6 months.
Julia’s favorite: Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins
FIV: With the publication of your cookbooks and the recipes you post on social media, you certainly have quite a few recipes piled up. Can you tell us your personal favorite recipe from your cookbooks?
Julia: My Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins from Happy Fast Food 2.
Weight loss course plan B, where plan A did not work out
FIV: They sound very tasty! As you mentioned yourself, besides your even 4 cookbooks, you also have your own weight loss course “Plan B”. What can our readers imagine under it?
Julia: The course is for all those for whom Plan A did not work. I offer exactly what I was missing when I was overweight. I had the knowledge, but I did not get into the permanent implementation or fell too quickly back into old habits. We (a team of several experts) accompany our participants during the weight loss process. In addition, they receive a success box in which everything is inside that is needed to get started. Meal plans, more than 60 simple and quick recipes, documents to collaborate. At the same time, we take care of them in daily exchange rounds, which take place online. There is always a daily topic, such as metabolism, losing weight with family, beliefs and many more. We offer the course at intervals, but in the long term we want to change to a permanent support, because the demand is very high.
Tips for dealing with precipitation
FIV: Let’s get to the last question. In your life you have had to experience a lot of precipitation, yet you never gave up and always kept going. Do you have any tips for our readers on how to better deal with precipitation?
Julia: You just have to imagine a toddler who would just lie down after the first attempt to walk when he falls. There will always be setbacks and setbacks, but in retrospect every setback was also an experience that helped me grow and become better.
FIV: Thank you again for your time! We wish you all the best and much success on your way!
