How about...

We take those bad eating habits and diets, throw them away and create a new set instead? A set that keeps you healthy, happy, get’s you in shape and even safes you some money?

How about...

We learn a few cooking skills? Not only to impress your loved ones, but also yourself?


Andreas LPM

Family and friends call me Andreas, so I guess that is my name – feel free to use it!


I am the creator of this blog and happy you found your way around. Bet you wonder why someone starts a blog about meal prep or food prep?


Well, I like cooking and good foods, structure, numbers (whuat?), lifting heavy stuff off the ground and a bunch of other things.My girlfriend thinks I am nerd, but loves that I always care about jummy, healthy meals – and sometimes those not so healthy meals. We we are all human, let’s face it 😉

(Everyone is welcome – If you don’t feel like human, or if you aren’t human at all, doesn’t matter. Enjoy LPM!)

I will be talking about food on this blog A LOT, but also how to prepare it in a smart way.

About the stuff you do in the kitchen aka cooking. And plenty other topics.


How come you know this stuff?

Aren’t you a glasses and shirt wearing design engineer or what ever that nerd stuff is you do?

True, true, … But also :

    • Dad is a Chef and I always loved cooking with and learning from him.
    • 60kg @ 178cm to 85kg in 6 month. Where I found the hard way that lifting weights on a bad diet and a lot of calories only gets you fat -> The famous 1-pack!
    • Learned a lot about nutrion and how to create eating plans that work.
    • Can Deadlift 160kg
    •  Transitioned from fat to fit

On my journey from skinny to fat to fit I tried a lot of things. (GOMAD-diet anyone?)
But what helped most was a structured, planed way of eating and training.


Sounds like the standard fitness-dogma everybody is preaching:


“Eat less, move more!”

– Simple enough.


If you factor in time and food choices with a specific goal in mind, that’s when things get interesting.


I assume you are here, reading theses lines, because you want to get healthy and lose a few pounds on the way. You want to learn how to prep meals in an easy and smart way. You want to be timely efficient, have control over ingredients and their quality. You want to save money and – believe it or not – save the planet!


Okay, that’s a big statement. Got a little excited here, but there is something to it! Maybe I’ll get to that later….


My goals with this blog:

Clever Decisions

Healthy Food

Fun Food


Happy Life

What I like to do is get a realistic view on dieting. Nobody needs to be super strict, unless a higher goal makes that necessary. If you want to step on stage in a bikini or speedo and look like you belong there you will have to get extreme.

But for most of us a happy medium is way more sustainable and that is what will get the results. If you plan to take it up a notch or two in the future you have established good eating and exercise habits and the discipline needed for these higher goals.


Keep a social life

You will see me mention burger, pizza, chicken wings, ice cream, pie, beer, other drinks and all the other tasty things. But also how to setup your diet, get your macros and create custom meal plans – while maintaining a social life!


I think when controlled it’s totally cool to have those fun meals. I would even go so far and say that the occasional junk will help you adhere to your diet. Don’t you think you would enjoy a diet more if you could still have fun meals with friends? If you would not feel like an outcast or worse: stop seeing your friends because you are dieting!?

Is that a nodding I see there?


You will read this many, many times on this blog because it so important: Adherence governs every diet known to mankind. Those who stick the longest to a diet are those who had the long-term success.


What you wont find on this blog:

You will not find many recipes. Sorry for that! There are plenty of quality sites online where you can find inspiration and endless lists of recipes. Nonetheless, when helpful and appropriate you will find recipes on this blog.
