3:28 AM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »







1. SUGAR
Sugar foods raise energy levels and mood temporarily but the high is followed by a crash. Refined sugar has a different mood altering effect than that of the fiber-rich starch in grains. Eat some fruits instead of processed sweets to stay energized and happy.







2. CAFFEINE






A research shows that people diagnosed with clinical depression experience less fatigue and depression when they eliminate sugar or caffeine and replace them with natural food or beverages such as ginger tea.




3. CHIPS AND OTHER SALTY SNACKS





Most commercial crispy snacks are greasy, salty, and poor in nutrients. The salt dehydrates tissues by forcing water out of cells in an effort to dilute the excess sodium in the blood. The first symptom of even mild dehydration is fatigue.



4. REFINED GRAINS
Like most high –glycemicindex foods, refined grains cause blood sugar levels to sky rocket. This triggers the pancreas to release large amount of insulin, which help funnel excess glucose into tissues. If too much insulin is released, blood sugar levels plummet, resulting in fatigue and moodiness. Try low-glycemic-index alternatives, such as whole grains sweet potatoes and other starchy vegetables.


5.FRENCH FRIES



They must be thee most popular food but they are also least nutritious. French fries are specially low in foliate, a B vitamin that helps nerve cells manufactures several of the most important mood regulating neurotransmitters. Optimal intake of this B vitamin improves mood, attention and mental function.
