Turning over a new leaf

I cut the knot. After much thought and consideration I decided to quit my job. For five years I have been part of a fine business. I learned a lot and I met special people. However, at a given moment I was done with it. I am pretty ambitious. Though I say it, who shouldn’t. I want to keep growing, preferably in all areas of my life. But that wouldn’t be realistic. Still, I tried to develop myself besides singing. I have worked for several companies and received training, because I find it important and so do my parents…

For about two years questions considering the meaning of life have been occupying my mind. What do I really want? Is this it? Why am I here on this planet? The quarterlife crisis, which I’m sure you know. Very tedious. It makes me feel tired, insecure and sometimes even unhappy. What do I do with this? To cut a long story short, I decided to start studying Psychology. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you: β€œNora quit her job and is going back to school!” And to be honest, it is the best decision I have made in a long time! Of course I am frightened, but taking risks is part of life. That means, if you want to grow as a person. If you do, you need to get out of your comfort zone. Of course this is easier said than done, but sometimes it’s all about doing instead of thinking. I don’t know yet what I want to do with my new studies, but I would like to help people (especially kids). I might want to work as a coach or child psychologist. Since nutrition is one of my other passions I would like to help kids with obesity.

Six weeks have passed since I started school and I’m having a great time. The first two weeks I felt like a β€˜freshie’ walking around in the building. More than once I have asked myself the question β€˜what on earth am I doing here?’. I am the oldest in my class and probably the oldest in the whole school. Ok, I am exaggerating here. But still, sometimes it just feels this way. The building is nice, tidy and well organized. The restaurant offers a lot of fruit, but that’s about it when it comes to what I’d like to eat. It is either deep-fried, covered with cheese, egg or meat or it contains lots of E numbers. So I bring my own food. In the morning I eat breakfast at home and for lunch I take a rice or bean salad or smoothie with me. When I’m in a hurry I stuff six bananas in my bag. Also a fine lunch by the way. Speaking of bananas. Many people tell me that bananas make you fat or that it causes constipation. I speak from my own experience when I say that this is not true. Bananas (and many other fruits) digest very quickly. When you eat them after a high-fat meal then you can get constipated. At least, that’s what happened to me and a lot of people I know. The banana wants to get down as quickly as possible, but the fatty (junk) food is β€œin the way”. My advice: eat fruit in the morning. And when you have had a high-fat meal wait with eating fruit. At least for three hours. For the last two years I have eaten very many bananas and I only got slimmer. Bananas do not make you fat! Besides, there are many people who eat a lot of fruit during the whole day. They get slimmer, fitter and more energetic.

De Planteneter (the plant eater, a Dutch plantbased advocate) experienced himself what it is like following a vegetable diet. Being overweight he easily lost his pounds without even having to think about a strict regime. In a short period of time he got fitter, stronger and healthier. His head got clearer, his skin improved and he got more energy. One year later he ran his first marathon in 3,5 hours. When he started his vegetable diet he could hardly run for five minutes.

At the moment I eat a lot of products containing starch, like potatoes. I feel well and I also see the scale going down. How and what I eat exactly I will tell you next time!

Love, Nora
