Depression (What You Eat).

Over the past couple of months (since the end of August) I have sought to change my diet in order to benefit my mental and emotional health, I generally had quite a bad summer in these respects. So I have sought to eat the following foods; see here for further information

  1. Leafy greens
  2. Walnuts
  3. Avocados
  4. Berries
  5. Mushrooms
  6. Onions
  7. Tomatoes
  8. Beans
  9. Seeds
  10. Apples

I have also sought to avoid the following foods; see here and here for further information:

  1. Sugar
  2. Processed foods
  3. Caffeine
  4. Fruit juices
  5. Breads / Cakes / Biscuits
  6. Salt

I have had more than two months without taking anti-depressants which is the longest period since I first started taking them in October 2002. I have certainly felt much better in my mental and emotional health. I do not know what the future holds; tomorrow i could be in mental / emotional free-fall. However, I have certainly noticed a beneficial change thus far.
