Food and Exercise as Antidepressants

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

How many of you eat when you’re stressed, anxious, panicky, or depressed?

Now, how many of you exercise when you’re experiencing those same feelings?

I didn’t conduct any formal poll, but I’m willing to bet more of you raised your hands for the first question than the second.

(After all, according to the CDC as of 2010, the percent of Americans 20 years old and older who are overweight, including obese, is 69.2%.)

Basically, more than half of American adults are overweight or outright obese.

Product Review: ‘Hungry for Change’ Documentary

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Have you watched Hungry for Change yet?

A few Saturday nights ago, I had nothing better to do than sit in front of Netflix (sad, I know, but let’s stay on topic here). As I flipped through the new releases, a documentary called Hungry for Change caught my eye.

I suppose it was the documentary’s cover image, a happy chick holding a grocery bag full of whole foods wrapped with a measuring tape, that caught my eye.

Because my grocery bags have been looking more and more like that lately (see Can Clean Eating Help Restore Hormonal Balance?), it seemed potentially up my alley.

So, what’s Hungry for Change all about?

So, during a regular appointment earlier this week, my doctor confirmed what I’ve suspected for the past couple of months: My hormones are completely out of whack.

Ever dealt with a hormonal imbalance? It’s pretty stressful. Not only can it cause weight problems and wreak havoc on your skin , but a hormonal imbalance sometimes brings mental health symptoms like depression, anxiety, and disorientation.
