I have actively participated in the online nutrition community for over 15 years. Shortly after I caught the running bug in 2005, I started to dive deep into nutrition. I collected various certifications, read books by the most prominent diet doctors, and, as a scientist myself, devoured research paper after research paper.

And as a relentless self-experimenter, I have tried all the famous diets — often long before they became “mainstream.”

From 2006–2012 I ate a “vegan whole-food diet.” In 2012 I started to eat a “zero-carb diet,” today known as the “carnivore diet.” But I eventually quit the all-meat diet as well. I have since tried various other dietary patterns, including “keto vegan,” “pro-metabolic” (based on the principles of Dr. Ray Peat), and “keto.”

And every time I started a new diet experiment, I consumed as many podcasts, books, and science articles as possible about this specific way of eating. I started following new influencers promoting this particular diet. I joined Facebook groups and forums.

In short, I am obsessed with knowing every tiny detail about a specific diet I try.
