Food is a basic need – you can’t do without it!

For me, nutrition and food are not the same thing. When I talk about a mood-stabilizing diet, I mean a conscious selection of foods that help me stay stable. It’s important to me that it tastes good, that I’m full, that it does me good. Yes, to achieve that I am also prepared to give up cherished, supposed pleasures. My long-term stability is more important to me than this brief culinary delight.


I don’t follow any trends or fashions with my diet, even if everyone is currently talking about low-carb nutrition. (The term means “few carbohydrates”) It’s easy to find like-minded people under this catchphrase, and many guides and cookbooks have already been published. The crucial factor for me is whether I can remain stable with it, but not whether this diet is currently fashionable.

While reading, I came across some astonishing connections between the psyche and nutrition. Among other things, I did not know,

  • that you can eat the “molecules of feelings”;
  • that the brain needs “omega-3 oil” to function properly;
  • that the synergy of vitamin D and omega-3 has a stronger influence on behavior than any psychotropic drug;
  • that the B vitamins are the bottleneck for the serotonin metabolism;
  • that the “sun hormone” (Vit D) helps against depression;
  • that there is a “salt of inner peace”;
  • that the small substances are the crucial spark for the energy;
  • that the gut brain and the other inhabitants living in the intestine have a clear say.
