Health Hack: Food & Mood

Choose Foods That Will Upgrade Your Mood

There may be a close relationship between diet and mood. In 2016, researchers found a diet with a high glycemic load may cause increased symptoms of depression and fatigue. A diet with a high glycemic load includes refined carbohydrates, such as those found in soft drinks, cakes, white bread, and biscuits. Vegetables, whole fruit, and whole grains have a lower glycemic load. While a healthy diet may improve overall mood, it is essential for people with depression to seek medical care.
