Ralf Dümmel always hopes for a big catch with “The Lion’s Den”, but the investor’s private life is now much leaner. The entrepreneur has already lost an impressive 10 kilos – also thanks to a prominent role model: Reiner Calmund.

Hamburg – At the moment, television viewers can once again root for “Die Höhle der Löwen”, because the new season of the show, which has been running successfully since 2014, again offers all sorts of innovations.

For many years, Reiner Calmund was the epitome of a real great guy, but that changed abruptly from 2020: The football official underwent a stomach reduction in January and lost almost 70 kilos by the end of the year.

In previous years he had repeatedly tried to lose weight, but then often gained even more through the so-called yo-yo effect.

“Lion’s Cave” investor Ralf Dümmel reveals diet secret – interval fasting and personal trainer

For 15 years Ralf Dümmel did without sport, now he has apparently completely changed his lifestyle. His insider tip: “I use intermittent fasting, walk around the Alster for an hour in the morning and do exercises with a personal trainer.”
