3 year Angry Nutrition Anniversary! What’s Yossif up to?

Hi everyone. I just realized Angry Nutrition is about 3 years old! What has been new with me lately?

Where have you been?!Angry Nutrition Yossif

If you’re a regular reader or follower, you might have noticed I have been pretty much missing for about half a year or more. To be quite honest, I was almost to the point where I was ready to give up on blogging completely. Plus, I’ve been dealing with a lot of difficulties this past year or so. I gained back some weight, got injured and can’t workout like normal, and I’ve been battling a depression of sorts. I also had a sudden and unexpected career change, and it has taken some time to get back into a regular flow of things. The good news is despite all the chaos, it all worked out in my favor.
I’ll admit something right here and now: I HATE blogging. Or at least, I hate what blogging has become. I got into blogging for 2 primary reasons: to help people who used to be like me and help them get healthier and lose weight, as well as something to occupy my free time. The truth is, blogging is a very very complicated thing. It’s not just writing a few posts here and there, you have to know a ton of psychology and technology to really get anywhere. If you’ve never ran a website/wordpress blog, you could easily go crazy trying to figure it all out. While I am a computer nerd, I have had to learn a ton of new things that have really taken a toll on my brain. SEO, HTML, CSS, wordpress, social media, etc. I’ve still barely scratched the surface and I’m still nowhere near the big boy bloggers. (I REALLY HATE SEO WITH A BURNING PASSION!)

It’s a big pond and I’m just a tiny fish

Here’s the thing, to be really successful (as in making blogging a second job) you HAVE to manipulate people. It becomes less about helping people and more about tricking them into doing certain things that makes you money. I HATE THAT. Examples are those stupid click-bait type articles with titles like “20 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT X” or “YOU’LL NEVER GUESS HOW THEY DID X” or crap like that which doesn’t really give you any good useful info, but rather just wastes your time. Buzzfeed and Cracked have gotten this down to an artform. I can’t stand how often I see articles that sound useful or interesting but end up just being worthless. They just want traffic and clicks, useful and honest content is lost on them. It’s all worthless fluff!

I started this blog to help people and get my ideas out there to steer people in the right direction. I’ve spent a lot of money to get this far and I’ll be happy to at least break even at this point. While this would be nice to be able to quit my day job and blog all day, I can’t do it all by myself.

Anyways, having said all that, I came back because my deep desire to learn and teach people never went away. I still want to help all of you, little by little. If I make a little money on the side, great. I just want to not have to sink too much money to reach more and more people.

So rather than beg for donations or trick people into clicking on things for money, I’ll do what I can to not be manipulative. I want to give you all real honest useful content. Free content is great and all, but I have been putting a lot of effort into my books so I can get a little back for my hard work.

New book!

With that, I’m proud to announce I have finally finished up my new book: Intermittent fasting 101: Learn how to master your hunger, melt fat effortlessly and keep it off for good! My most popular article to date is all about Intermittent fasting, so I have taken all of my expert knowledge about it and wrote a big book that will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know to master fasting like I have been using for years.

Fasting is what has prevented me from gaining too much weight, even during the times when I couldn’t workout or was eating crappy foods. Now, I’m finally getting back into regular exercise and eating right, and IF will make that fat melt right off and help me rebuild my muscles. While I’ve been hovering in the 220-210lb range for a while, I will be back to the 180-190 again very soon. Remember, this isn’t a worthless new years resolution, this is just me getting back on the bandwagon that I fell off of!

What’s next for Angry Nutrition?

I’d like to try my hand at podcasting more often and eventually try to make videos as well. I might start doing Q&A sessions on the various social medias too. Stay tuned!

If you have been helped by Angry Nutrition, consider leaving a small tip. It would really help me out.

About Yossif

Hey, I'm Yossif. I get angry about health and food. I think I know what I'm talking about, but I dunno. Most people can't drop 100 lbs by accident, right? I want to try and helps others get healthy and fit. There's a lot of lies and crappy info out there, I'm trying to shovel it out of the way. Sign up for my newsletter here!

  1. Hey Yossif,

    As someone who also used to be fat, and had lost weight and kept it off, mostly with lower carb, paleo-style eating and naturally flowing into intermittent fasting, it is great to see people like yourself sharing the lessons learnt in the process.

    Life throws its own curve balls, and just because we may put on a few kilos (or lbs), it is not the end of the world. Take it one step at a time and I’m sure you’ll be back at the range that is ideal for you.

    You seem very committed, and as someone who also went through a turbulent time recently, I can relate to putting a few kilos and few % body fat back on, mostly due to the stresses and resulting cortisol load.

    Personally, I’m trying to get more sleep and take a bit more calmer and relaxed at work, this year and keep progressing.

    All the very best on your continued journey.

    Hope your injuries have healed and that your career change has stabilised.

    I don’t enjoy blogging as much as talking to people about fitness and the lifestyle changes, so I chose to use podcasting as the medium and after struggling with blogging, have slowly started creating content that people would find useful.

    As for the click-bait style titles, as much as we don’t like them, the people we want to influence and help are drawn in by them, so I think it is up to us to learn and use it not just for click-bait, but to actually give meaty information as you are giving on you blog. I’ve been told that Cashvertising is a good book to read about the psychology of people when it comes to these things.

    Keep up the good work.

    Regards,
    Ben.

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Ben! Yes, all things considered, it’s a constant battle to stay in shape and be active. If nothing else, I will do everything in my power to prevent myself from ever going back to my old ways and always having my long term health in mind. It just gets harder as we get older, so I need to stay on track even after a few bumps in the road.

    I totally agree with you about podcasting, it is for sure my medium that I will eventually transition towards in the future. I even have a first podcast made, but I haven’t made any new ones yet. Trying to sit there and essentially talk to yourself for 10-30 minutes is surprisingly hard! All in due time, I suppose. If nothing else, I still somewhat enjoy writing and I have more books in the works. (My big book on intermittent fasting will be ready very soon even!)

    Just as you said, I want to give people real, honest and useful information instead of the clickbait crap that litters the internet these days. It’s a fine line and it’s one I’ll have to learn to be successful. I’ll definitely check out that book, I need all the help I can get for future approaches. Thanks for reading!

  3. Hey Yossif,

    Very true, it is a constant battle of sorts to get and stay fit, but it’s been worth it. I can’t imagine being the weight I was anymore, or what I could have ended up being I I hadn’t decided to change and make a difference to my life. :)

    One of the suggested methods for recording episodes is to get a friend or significant other to interview you.

    I’ve been able to create outlines for what I want to share and record 5 – 15 minute sessions. But I’ve seen others go the interview route and see how they are able to do longer shows with more content. It is something I’ll be looking to transition to, more like interviewing others who have been through the journey first, and then some others who have influenced me and helped me with their material in the future.

    I liked your book the Top 10 Myths (yes, I’m still curious and like to see how others have been able to do it, and learn any new ideas that I can test. :) ), and look forward to your next one.

    It does take a lot of effort getting a book out, something I’m looking to do by the end of the year.

    All the best for you next book launch.

    Take care.

    Ben.

  4. That’s a great idea Ben! I’ll have to give that a try once I get back into podcasting soon. Hopefully once I have some more experience under my belt I can branch out and talk with other podcasters as well. That would be much more fun and entertaining than just talking to myself for sure. Thanks for the kind words, if you’re interested I could send you a copy of my newest ebook!

    Thanks again!

  5. Hey Yossif,

    After I wrote my earlier comment I noticed the banner for the new book, so I bought it on Amazon :)

    I’ve got a few books to read, in the pipeline, but will get to it as soon as the main stash is complete.

    Yeah true, start slow and get there one step at a time. It’s taken me a long time to just get started, but its finally out in the wild :)

    You’ve put a lot of effort into your first book and posts here, so I’m sure you’ll do well with podcasting and interviewing.

    I’ll leave some feedback on Amazon once I’ve finished reading the book.

    Take care.

    Ben.

  6. Cool, thanks man! I really appreciate it. I’d love to hear any feedback. I’m struggling to get it in front of people at the moment, but I’m glad people are liking it so far. I’m really passionate about it!

    Once the book gets going, I will for sure get more into podcasting. It’ll take some work, but I’m excited to give it a try. Thanks again for encouraging words!

    -Yossif

  7. Hey Yossif,

    Liking what I’m reading so far and will have to do a review for both your books once I’m done.

    As for getting eyeballs, I’ve been seeing a lot of the weight/fat loss guys and gals doing a lot of stuff on youtube. I haven’t done Youtube advertising yet, but that may be an avenue to pursue.

    I’m hearing that you pay for the ads only if users watch it fully, so you may be able to get a 30 second video outlining the benefits of IF and getting them to maybe come to your site where you can have an optin form in front of a link to the book on amazon or have a short report related to IF and then on the download/thank you page have a link/banner to the book on amazon.

    All the best.

    Ben.

  8. Hey, sorry for the late reply, been super busy with book stuff. Glad you like the books!

    Can’t really comment on Youtube stuff yet since I’ve barely looked into it. I have a buddy who absolutely loves Facebook ads, but I’ve had terrible results with them myself. It’s for sure my next big mountain to climb but I’ll get into it eventually. Not a bad idea though, thanks for the heads up!
    -Yossif

  9. Not a problem at all.
    All the best with all your efforts. :)
