mood & food

Posted , 3 users are following.

Anybody else ever found a link between these two?

About 30 minutes after drinking freshly squeezed orange juice I feel like sh*t.

Im not a big eater, Im slim and i dont eat alot. My eating habits are really bad eg a lot of sugary drinks/snacks and probably one meal a day.

I am starting to wonder whether this is contributing to my moods.

After having 2 cans of pop, a jar of cockles, 3 ice lollies and a packet of chocolate (all day) I feel quite emotional and edgy. 

I am going to start eating better tomorrow and see if there is a difference.

Anyone else see a link?

    Yes, lol, had to laugh at your daily diet. Been there. It's okay to find items that are healthy and just repeat them everyday. Protein is the biggy for me. If I don't get some kind of meat, eggs or beans during the day by 4 pm, I am having a anxiety issue without fail. I almost forgot, I eat nuts too and they do the trick. Sometimes while working ect...or on the go I'll buy a bag of almonds or whatever the choice is.

    i do eat some junk too...a little candy here. I love soda but I had to cut back. I drink a ton of anything I can get my hands on during the day without caffiene. They say 64 ounces is good I do some days twice that. ( if I have anxiety)  a hormone is released into our body when we get frightened about something and sometimes ( panic attack ) it pours it on, so by drinking enough water I feel I can dilute those hormones...my dad told me that not a doctor but it's true. I always stay the. Same weight too. On the thin side, until I took. Mirtazapine but even then I didn't gain much. Anxious people I think tend to be a little light and depression causes the opposite? Not sure anyhow good luck in search of your new diet. I know it helped me a ton.

    but sometimes I have to admit I try to skip lunch and it comes back to bite me😬

      Thanks Rose, Ive been eating 3 melas a day and cut out sugar completely. I felt tonnes better. Then today I have gone back to eating rubbish and feel so tired, definitely makes a difference! Will follow the water tip. Water drinkers are never anxious in my opinion haha so Im going with that as a rule! Thanks again

    thats hardly surprising really. pop ice lollies and chocolate are not really proper food.  Try to eat a more balanced diet and you will be 100% better.

    There are good books available on nutrition.
