Diet Therapy for Dealing with Depression

The following are some of the foods that have been shown to change a person's mood for the better:

Complex Carbohydrates

Complex carbohydrates like whole grain bread, pastry and cereals increase the levels of serotonin in the body. This serotonin “soothes the mind” and imparts a feeling of calmness, relaxation, and emotional well being.

This connection of carbohydrates and depression was shown by a study reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine which showed that persons who ate a very low carbohydrate diet of around 20 -40 grams a day had higher rates of depression, anger and anxiety compared to those who ate a high carb and low-fat diet.

Complex carbohydrates do not cause the blood sugar spikes associated with moods swings, energy drops and fatigue that are associated with eating refined carbohydrates like bread, cakes and other products made from white flour.

Therefore, increase your intake of whole grain pasta, whole meal breads, and high fiber cereals when you are feeling down as these are some of the best foods for beating depression naturally
