The Book

Alpine Weight Loss Secrets

Alpine Weight Loss Secrets is a great book full of tons of tips and ideas to lose weight and get healthy. Some of my favorite parts are those about flexing your mental muscle, fresh air foods, posture, the sample menus and the recipes. There are many worksheets included in the book as well which I find very helpful. Some are fill in the blanks while others are simply filled with useful information.

There is a chapter called “The Joy of Living”, which is focused on everything in your life except weight. It talks about the need to rid yourself of stress and find out what it is you want to do with your life. I really like that this has an entire chapter because it is true that weight isn’t the only thing that needs changed for some people to be happy and healthy. It’s nice to read something that does not only tell me to change my eating habits and exercise. Stefan actually takes the time to discuss a person’s entire life and what can be done to be healthier, live longer, and be happier.

I have really enjoyed reading this book and I know that I’ll be going back to it to read over certain parts again as I choose which ones I may want to implement into my own life.  I absolutely love the fact that a person can pick and choose what they want to implement into their life. The book can be used by going through from the very beginning to the end, or you can choose what you want to use and in what order.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new change for the New Year. It’s a great resource for your overall health and it is enjoyable to read.

The Author

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Stefan Aschan is the founder of and personality behind, STRENGTH 123 and author of the Alpine Weight Loss Secrets. Stefan’s revolutionary Strength 123 and Mental Detox™ programs are specifically designed to address the human body inside and out.  His principles are surprisingly simple; properly executed movements and proper nutrition builds a lean defined body and clears the mind. Stefan believes that regardless of age, only a clear mind can focus on building a strong, agile and flexible body.

Stefan’s roots in fitness and nutrition began in Austria. His passion in fitness started in primary school by being a competitive athlete in sports such as wide & high jumping, 100 m sprints and down hill skiing.  His love of nutrition was developed on the organic farms in Lower Austria and continued through while working as a culinary apprentice. While receiving his Culinary Arts Degree, Stefan was further bit by the “fitness bug” and continued training at the local gyms and fitness facilities in his area. Never one to shy away from physical activity Stefan also began playing American football. His friends and colleagues continuously told Stefan that his energy and outlook on life was too great to be bottled up in Europe and urged him to move to a country with a broader outlook– the United States. In 1997, equipped with two suitcases and a goal, Stefan immigrated to the United States.
