My name is Katrine, and I’m the founder of wholefoodswholeminds.com. I’m a nutritionist, and I also have a master’s degree in medical biology and health promotion. I know a lot about nutrition and how it affects your health. I am also a fitness instructor and I know how to put a workout schedule together. This is something I want to incorporate in my business later. My passion for nutrition and health all began when I lost the weight I had gained while taking medication. I had always been very thin, but when I took the medications, I gained 10 kg / 22 pounds. It’s not overwhelming, but it still made my re-think my self-image. I went from feeling like a thin girl who could eat whatever I wanted and never gaining weight, to someone who had to be careful not to overeat, which was hard when the medication I took ruined my appetite regulation, and I was surrounded by horrible food choices. It’s wasn’t until I stopped using medication that I got motivated to lose the weight I had gained. I lost 10kg / 22 pounds in 2 month, which is a lot. I did it by starving myself. My eating routine was:
- 1 apple for breakfast
- 1 slice of bread for lunch (no butter of course)
- 1 portion of dinner (half salat, half whatever was served that day).
