Did you know that the foods you eat every day can greatly influence your mood and behavior? Yep, we already know that diet greatly affects our mental health, and this article titled “9 Things You Need to Know about Diet and Depression” from the Forks over Knives website further confirms it.
Our gut bacteria, inflammation levels, blood flow, brain health, and so much more, can all be negatively affected by consuming fiberless, high fat foods common in the Standard American Diet (SAD). Such foods can also have a profound effect on our risk of depression.
The answer to optimal physical AND mental health is a low-fat, whole food, plant-based diet comprised of potatoes, yams, beans, rice, corn, squash, legumes, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and lots of good clean water (see food pyramid).
In this short video, Dr. McDougall also explains some easy, natural remedies for depression. Please take a look.
