HUNGER ISSUES?

I have a problem. I can eat a lot. Honestly, I kind of laugh a little when friends of mine say they’re full after just one muffin or a single slice of bread. Or even one portion of dinner. Sure enough I can feel pretty full after certain meals, but others I could easily fill up on two (or worst case, yet rarely, three) portions before I feel full enough to last me until my next meal. Sometimes I feel like I could go on eating forever because it takes so much for me to fill up. For example; lunch at school, two slices of bread rarely keep me satisfied until dinner, let alone the end of the school day. Not to mention this is Norwegian breads, that means with lots of grains and such…

So I’ve been trying to think of how I can learn to eat less and still feel full. Some of the best tips I’ve gotten/found might be to for example drink a lot of water before a meal to trick my stomach into thinking I’m fuller than I really am…

Another trick was to eat slowly (which is a challenge for me because I’m usually quite hungry when I sit down for a meal) and to eat smaller portions by using smaller plates/bowls…

What do you think? Can you trick/train yourself to eat less and still feel full? How do you do it?

Your opinion, please.

It’s spring, and on this very date (March 15th) I have one month to send in my school applications. So as you might understand, I have a lot of questions going on in my head. There are what if’s and how’s, even some maybe’s going on up there. I already know what my number one application will be, and I’m trying to decide what to apply for as a plan B and plan C just in case..

So then I started thinking about what ideas I have in my head. I’ve already agreed with myself that I want possibilites to lead and manage myself, not to always be just another worker but perhaps the possibility to be a manager of some sort.. or maybe even an editor…

So here is where my little idea comes in: I love to read magazines. However, some of my favourite ones are turning into picture books of fashion. Fashion is big, I get that.. but it’s not all I want to READ about. I get a magazine to read, not to look. So then I also started thinking about my own problem; I have no idea what interests I have. I don’t know what is exciting to me or what I enjoy that I could make a career out of.

So I put these two things together and thought of an idea that could be fun. To make a magazine that could inspire young adults who have no idea what they want to do with their life. To have articles on different women and their careers. Articles about studies abroad and about many different hobbies. Not just fashion, not just prime and perfect homes, not just about exotic vacation spots and luxury lives; but about real people who followed their dreams and are living life just as they wanted to. To inspire people who don’t know what their dreams are. I sure wish I had a magazine like that right now, and for all I know there is most likely similar magazines out there. It would just be wonderful to help people figure out what they want to do. It would be like being a counsellor only so much cooler! I feel I’ve always had a creative side to me, and I’d love to do something where I can use my creativity to make something great.

I don’t know what you think, but that’s what I’d like to know! Would this be a good consept, something I could/should try to plan a little more and keep as an idea in my head?
