Over the years, however, I have gained a greater and greater understanding of nutritional issues.
A good friend from Wolfsburg, who has been eating vegan for ages, had flipped a switch in my head. It wasn't about reprogramming me to be a vegan, but about the quality, the handling, the quantity, the added value, the nutrients and vitamins of the food.
He educated me and wrote me my first diet plan for better understanding.
I didn't become a vegan, but I've tried it twice so far to go completely on a plant-based diet for a while. And that's what makes the topic of nutrition so exciting.
There are many different ways to eat. There are many experts who are said to have discovered true miracle formulas, but ultimately everyone has to find out for themselves which way of eating is best for their own body.
It can be crucial which diet you follow - even basic principles have a positive influence on your eating behaviour. You don't have to completely destroy your personal preferences.
At best, choose a healthier option for the most part and enjoy nutrient-rich foods.
