The Diet for Depression

While there has been some research in the past suggesting a link between diet and depression, Professor Felice Jacka of Deakin University in Australia has completed a truly revolutionary study demonstrating that a healthy diet can actually treat existing depression.

    This is also on the go in the Uk under another name called The Pioppi diet, in which Italian hamlet general poverty, but not of spirit or community, evolved a very basic med diet.
    The median life span was 90, and there is research by Ancel Keys whom got to be a centenarian.
    Now there is life span and life span, and we would hopefully choose to have one with quality, in other words one with normal social interaction and community spirit, and that seems concomitant with a sound diet which does not create the life shortening effect of metabolic syndrome and obesity.
    Its for that reason, I’m on it.
    However, in the brief period of around 10 days, I can confirm, but only anecdotally that the two major changes I have noticed are mood quiescence, not hearing the sugar siren telling me I am hungry when I’m not, and the other thing is that a long term skin condition seems to be receding.
    Waistline may be following, but I’m not a believer in instant weight loss as we all have to act accordingly to the homeostatic processes in our bodies.
    Its a nice tasty diet, by the way, so I’m not doing victim stuff, one doesn’t do that after a hearty meal.
    Worth a try then…
    Now wheres me Chianti?…But not too much..dang theres always a catch!

    Hi I’ve been suffering from depression anxiety and paranoid
    What is good to stop hearing voices
    I hear voices telling me to hurt myself or someone
    Very scared. I like to know if there is something I could do besides taking medication.

    Animal fats are not healthy fats. Plant-based fats are healthy fats (nuts, legumes, avocado, etc.) and all animal products are toxic to the human body. It’s irresponsible for you to tell people that eating animal products are in any way healthy. You should revise this article with accurate and truly healthy information. Animal products are directly linked to cancer and chronic disease as well as being the leading cause of climate change, which affects everyone. Please promote more accurate information in the future.

    I have been on a low carbohydrate diet, aka the Ketogenic or Banting diet, and I have noticed I’m not quite as sad. I’m not skipping through the fields like some people claim but I can get out of bed most days. I’m not happy about everything, I’m more even. I’m able to catch my emotions before they spiral off.

    My life still sucks and there are not so great people in my life that cause me stress but I can get through the day while trying to find ways to improve things, even if just a little bit.

    Many people say they don’t feel so foggy and their mood evens out.

    I don’t have health insurance and no access to counselling AND I’m overweight, so after nothing else had helped this is helping me feel better mentally and I’m down a pants size.

    Cut out the grains and sugar for a couple of weeks and see how you feel!

    Personally, I find when I’m off processed foods and all sugar (soda, sugary desserts, etc.), I feel better emotionally. There’s many different diets out there that help you eat healthy, so choose one that works for you. Yes, at times it’s difficult not to eat as everyone else, but the benefit of staying on a healthy diet and feeling good and emotionally comfortable is worth it!
