We have healthy foods same way we have unhealthy foods; there are foods that will boost one’s mood and also foods that will have a bad effect on one’s mood.
Here are some of the foods that can have a bad effect on your mood:
Processed meats: “Foods with processed meats like hot dogs and sausages and the likes contain high levels of energy-sucking, mood-altering nitrates, food colorings, preservatives, and additives that could cause headaches.
Coffee: Be careful of the number of cups of coffee you drink a day; over-consumption of caffeine could make you suffer from anxiety, lack of focus and major mood swings”.
Margarine: margarine contains processed fats, which compared to natural-occurring fats causes insulin imbalances, mood swings, weight gain, and increase the risk of heart attacks”.
Baked foods: “These delicious and yet deceptive foods contain fast-burning carbohydrates, the kind that causes a quick spike in blood sugar and a dramatic sugar crash shortly after, which affects your focus, energy, and causes equally dramatic mood swings”.
