Why does a depression diet work?
It’s been scientifically proven that what we eat affects our mood.
"Food can affect your mood, and what you choose to put into your mouth can influence your state of mind." - Amanda Geary, in her book The Food And Mood Handbook: Find Relief at Last From Depression, Anxiety, PMS, Cravings and Mood Swings
Go to the grocery store and you will see more and more processed foods with snazzy marketing telling you how good their product is – but is it healthy? To beat your depression, you must pay close attention to what you put in your mouth. There’s great temptation to eat comfort food – but that’s only making things worse.
It’s like giving your Ferrari the grimiest fuel and oil. It’s engine won’t purr if you give it that junk. Same with your body – that’s including your mind.
* It’s been proven that if you do not get adequate nutrition- you are more likely to experience long-term depression, thoughts of suicide and even attempt suicide. (The Journal of Nutrition, April, 132(4): 719-25.)
