From the study in Psychosomatic Medicine: ” An analysis of data from almost 46,000 people has found that weight loss, nutrient boosting and fat reduction diets can all reduce the symptoms of depression.”
How cool is that? Changing your diet can improve your mental health!
What happens if you add exercise to your life style? Quoting the study again: “Specifically, our results within this study found that when dietary interventions were combined with exercise, a greater improvement in depressive symptoms was experienced by people. Taken together, our data really highlight the central role of eating a healthier diet and taking regular exercise to act as a viable treatment to help people with low mood.”
Now diet and exercise might not fix all of your problems but it is a good place to start.
